i discovered that I feel 100% better the day after binge day if I eat 100-200gr prunes (depending on body size) as my last snack on binge day. Tim suggest using caffeine as a mild laxative, but that doesn't work for me. I hate feeling bloated and sluggish post binge day and prunes have seemed to fix that problem. They elimi...

Hi all, I have decided to stop SCD.... It just not for me. In 3 months (on and off) I have only managed to lose and gain 5 pounds and I realise I may not reach my goal in time for my birthday in July 2012 at this rate. I know the scale isnt the best barometer but my pants are still tight so nothing is happening. Even thoug...

Water retention can be a major problem for some when on SCD. With our cheat days, we can retain a LOT of water weight as our glycogen levels are replenished- each gram of carbohydrate holds onto 4 grams of water and each gram of salt can hold onto a pound of water. So it's no wonder that we end up looking and feeling bloat...

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...

This question is for all the women who are on SCD. I know that women retain water before their period and feeling of being bloated is "normal" for most of us. Still, it's really frustrating to see that all the work does not pay off due to the period weight. I think during this time we need most motivation to support ea...

I'm a 45 year old father of 3, and I enjoy getting together with friends and consuming alcohol on the weekends. It seems like everyone out there will have 2 drinks once in a while, and never let go a bit more then that. Does anyone else out there feel the same way, or do I need to check myself in?

I'm on day 6 of the scd. Loving it, loving how I've nourished I've been feeling. Having less 'high's and low's' then I usually do. Haven't had any weight loss yet or changes in my body as far as losing inches, I know this may take some time. Is it normal to feel a little bloated from having such a large (30g of protein) ...

and I probably won't do it again for while Yesterday I went to physiotherapy, did all my body measurements and got onto the scale again. According to my body measurements I was up 1 inch total ( mainly abs and thighs) but that's because I'm coming into my TOM and I'm retaining water like crazy. I'm so bloated that I feel li...
