Protein Shake for Breakfast

If I’m in a rush and I do a protein shake for breakfast, I usully pour in a few tablespoons of cartoned, pasteurized egg-whites. At least then you’re getting some more solid protein, a...

A W replied to Michelle Hill's question:

Alternative to Kimchi or Sauerkraut

You don't really need Kimchi or Sauerkraut or anything fermented. As Sonia mentioned, you could take a probiotic supplement if you want to, but none of that's necessary for the diet to work.

Yes, since starting Occam's three months ago, I've gained around five or six pounds, though some of this may have been due to Holiday slippage. ...

A W asked a question:

What to do to lose fat without losing muscle after Occam's?

I've been on a slightly modified version of Occam's for a few months now. I only do the Occam's diet on Workout days, fast two days a week, and do SCD all of the other days. My strength has gone u...

Doing Occam's With IF

About a month and a half ago I switched from SCD + IF to Occam's Protocol. I don't quite follow Occam's Feeding, but I do have a cup of oatmeal and a bottle of Kefir on my workout days along with ...

A W asked a question:

What just happened?

Okay, so I've done the Slow Carb diet for about 8 or 9 weeks now (I also did it for about 4 months about a year ago before I fell off for job-related reasons) and this is the first time I've had ...

A W replied to Mike P's question:

Pink Moscato?

I doubt it. I think just dry red wines are "allowed". Moscato is usually very sweet. I'm not an expert though so I don't really know. It may or may not have a significant effect. I guess...

1st week on SCD....Couldn't be happier!!!

I get "Simply Grapefruit". Most stores I go to have it in their refrigerated juice section if they carry the "Simply Orange" brand.

A W replied to Melanie Black's question:

Can you have black coffee everyday?

From my understanding, yes, black coffee every day is fine, if not encouraged. It's especially good if you're taking it with cinnamon and a green tea capsule. Or at least that's what I've heard ar...

A W replied to Nader Tohamy's question:

Eating late?

Lately I've been going to bed at 4-5 AM and getting up at 12-2pm. I usually eat breakfast right away, and then every four hours after that I try to eat something. I have a regular lunch, dinner, a...

So far, Aldi has the cheapest tuna that I've found. Only 69 cents a can, and it's better quality than Starkist and Bumblebee in my opinion. I look...

Sep 1st 2012

I try to let it run on my back for a few solid minutes. Then I just shower as usual and try to stay in for a total of 10 minutes. I don't know if ...

A W replied to Serkan Atila's question:

Cold Showers!!

I take them (though occasionally I'll have a warm one just because I feel like it). I just start the shower on full blast cold, get psyched up and jump in. After getting over the hump of the initi...

A W replied to LAreprazent's question:

Skipped cheat day, any healthy alternative?

You need a proper cheat day or you'll probably stall. At least I did. It wasn't that I wasn't cheating, it's just that every time I fell of the wagon and ate something small that I wasn't suppos...

A W replied to Caren Jackson's question:

What is your biggest struggle on SCD?

Breakfast was a problem for me too. Lately, I've taken to eating a 5-6 oz can of tuna and a half can of beans for the breakfast protein. They're both fast. Don't need cooking. And I don't feel li...

I just saw that you said "leaving out legumes". In that case I'd pop a serving of Almonds or Brazil nuts to get the rest of the protein ...

A W replied to inara's question:

I'm pretty new too. So far this is sort of my fourth week, and I've just had what I would consider a cheat week where a bunch of people just kept coming over and food options with them were limite...
