My slow carb diet starts Saturday with the hopes of having a full seven days in before a glutton of a cheat day. I’m also reading up on accompanying supplements, of which the stack Ferriss recommends is called PAGG.


“I currently use the following products. I have no financial interest in any of them:

– Vitamin Shoppe—Allicin 6000 Garlic, 650 mg, 100 caplets (
– Mega Green Tea Extract (decaffeinated), 725 mg, 100 capsules (
– Vitamin Shoppe—Alpha-Lipoic Acid, 300 mg, 60 capsules (
– Nature’s Life—Policosanol, 60 tablets (”



The Stack Appears like this:

“Policosanol: 20–25 mg
Alpha- lipoic acid: 100–300 mg (I take 300 mg with each meal, but some people experience acid reflux symptoms with even 100 mg)
Green tea flavanols (decaffeinated with at least 325 mg EGCG): 325 mg
G arlic extract: at least 200 mg (I routinely use 650+ mg)”

The Timing Appears like this:

“Prior to breakfast: AGG
Prior to lunch: AGG
Prior to dinner: AGG
Prior to bed: PAG (omit the green tea extract)”
