Yerba mate, everyday, or just cheat days?

Green tea or yerba mate to stimulate weight loss?

I drink both green tea and yerba mate. I can not say definitively that one is better than the other, as far as weight loss is concerned. I do like the flavor of yerba mate, as a "hot" ...

Ice bath - and then?

I normally just dry off and let my body adjust back to normal temperature naturally. After a few ice baths, it makes taking cold showers easy! Best of luck! keith

Sugar-free Dark Chocolate, an absolute no?

Personally, if I were going to eat chocolate, I would stick with 86-90% dark chocolate with real sugar. You would need to limit the amount you eat.

Flavor of food on diet?

I do not find my food bland at all. I season my food with many fresh herbs and spices. Cayenne, cinnamon, and curry are great staples to have.

jameswendellbell replied to cmattoni's question:

Why and how would a low calorie version of this diet conflict with its guidelines?

Part of the reasoning behind the SCD is to make sure your body is getting enough calories so that your body doesn't think you are starving it. Once you go into starvation mode, you will stop your...

anyone else have firbomyalgia and doing well with the scd?

I have had fibro since 1999. As long as I don't eat grains (wheat in particular) I have no symptoms. This diet is wonderful for those of us with fibromyalgia.

What has slow carb done for you? (other than weight loss of course!)

For me, getting off the wheat/flour products cured my fibromyalgia--something the doctors could never do.

No, I have the binge day anyway. It is important for your weight loss and for your sanity.

I would not bother with supplements at first. See how the eating plan and workouts go; then maybe consider supplements later.

Timing of PAGG supplements

I took AGG before breakfast and lunch and dinner and PAGG before bed. On binge day I only took PAGG before breakfast and took a break from it for the rest of binge day.
