Intermittent-Intermittent Fasting

Hi, I think I'm willing to try some IF soon to see if I can break out of my plateau. I've looked at various schedules and I'll probably go with 16/8 or 15/9, eating between 9-10am-6-7pm (because ...

Eating Ham?

I eat it quite regularly, especially as a snack. There isn't sugar in the ones I get (usually chicken loaf or turkey breast) but usually some sort of preservative and some starch (maize). I just t...

I love peri-peri! And maybe a bit of tamari. And home made guacamole!

Anyone else excited about 4-Hour Chef?

John Smith replied to Dianna Ivanov's question:

I'm confused? I thought beans were good!

I would stick with it a bit longer. Your body needs to adjust to the no-carb thing. I didn't start seeing good daily weight loss until the second week. This diet works for me; I put on 2kg on Satu...

John Smith replied to Alyssa Jones's question:

Any tips for surviving the holidays?

Surely even with events you're not going to be eating three non-SCD meals a day? I would suggest (and I'm not an expert by any means) that you stick as much as you can to the SCD (breakfast, dinn...

John Smith replied to Juan Pinillos's question:


I looooove chilli con carne and it's quite slow-carb friendly, aside from the lack of rice. You don't need a slow cooker for it though; I make mine in a pan... Off the top of my head the recipe wo...
