The 4 Hour Body diet is hardly a quick fix. The book is intense, and very full of details. Essentially, "slow carb", and the author does recommend a lot of beans for the added fiber/filling. He also promotes eating whole, natural foods, kind of like Paleo (which is anti-beans and lentils, go figure). But the overall effect is that your carbs come from slow digesting foods like beans and you try not to fill your head with too much thought about what to eat, keeping your options quite simple until the "cheat day" or "free day". Even then, it's not a total free for all, but you allow yourself to have the things you crave.
