A LOT of people following the slow carb diet to burn fat are getting lazy and using protein powders to meet the '30g of protein within 30 minutes of waking' requirement. Unfortunately, this may derail your fat-loss efforts, not solely because of the sucralose (which is still bad for weight loss), but also because whey prot...

Ok... I know this is probably a dumb question but anyway... I usually put my alarm clock and it takes me around 30 min to actually get up. The best 30 min of my day by the way. Problem is that normally I'm always late for the 30 min range for breakfast... if you count that after waking up. I have tried to look for the scie...

This is a post for those of us doing SCD with lots of weight to lose (100+ lbs in my case), who have a long and distinguished history of overeating. In short, if you are someone who is used to overeating, this eating plan will work better if you monitor portions and identify a daily caloric goal below your maintenance calor...

I workout first thing in the AM, or it doesn't happen. Can I wait until my workout (usually 30-45 min) is over to eat, or should I eat first? It would litterally be eat, put dishes in dishwasher, workout, so I don't know if that's too soon. I expect most days I'll be eating 2 scrambelled eggs w/ veggies.

So far, I've been working out twice a week for 30 minutes, as the book says, but I feel like I'm not exercising at ALL and worried I might get fat/lose the muscle I built up. Can I go more often?

I've been doing the SCD for 5 weeks now and have been having stomach problems after eating the beans. It doesn't seem to matter what type - I cook them myself and make black, white, and lentils. They make me feel bloated and gassy - my stomach was best on my Saturday cheat day this week when I had yoghurt, fruit, and every...

I started the SCD 10 days ago, because after many years of neglect I need to get my body in order. I'm 30, 192 cm, and at the beginning of this diet I weighted 101.9 kg. After 10 days my weight is 101 kg (still haven't lost all the weight I gained on my cheat day, even though it was 2 days ago). As for my measurements, the...

I've been following the slow carb diet for 2 weeks now and I start to feel sick every time I have to eat. It's the kind of sick you feel when you're about to eat something you dont want to, and the queasy feeling in my stomach persists even after I'm done. I'm not used to eating this much protein and I was just wondering i...

Which program is better, Occam's or Geek to Freak? I want to build muscle fast, but only have time about twice a week to work out. And I work 9-5 so it's harder to diet. Which workout will get me the most results the fastest with the least amount of diet restrictions?

In the book, Tim talks about meals withing 30 minutes of a workout. Who here takes advantage of this? What do you usually eat? Are there any restrictions, other than the 30 minutes and it having to be 20+ minutes of resistance training? I know he has a pizza on his website with cheese and other goodies on it as his examp...

Hello fellow Slow carbers... In just under 2 months (7 weeks) I have gone from 67kg down to 60.5 - 61kg. BF from 14.4% down to 11%. For the past 4 to 5 weeks my weight loss has plateaued/stalled - and this was to be expected without going into 'Last mile' tactics, to get below 10% BF. I have lost another 1-1.5kg (digita...
