Break after 8 weeks???

My opinion is that unless you read it in the book I wouldn’t do it. If people do as advised in 4HB on cheat day then I don’t know why anyone feels the need for a break or change in pro...

Not getting 1200 calories / day

Have you had your body comp accurately measured? 1000 calories a day might not be as low as you think. The 2000 cal recomendation that we all grew up reading on the back of cereal boxes was based ...

TIP: Avoid whey protein when burning fat!

Am I the only Wine-O?

Yessir! Wine-o is divine-o! I will always be a beer guy, which is why the SCD is a bit of a bummer. My buddy (who is also doing SCD) and I brew beer, and once a week we would have him over for d...

Third week, little change. HELP, feeling discouraged

Hey! I'm approaching my third Faturday, too! Get out of your head and just focus on how good you're going to feel down the road. Trust the science, and I'll do the same. I don't know if it will...

Well, I think I'm doing all right. I hope I am, anyway... Week 1 was great. I dropped 8 lbs, and I was militant that week. Cold showers, cold water after waking, strict food choices. My first Fat...

Don Rush asked a question:

csnewdayyesterday replied to Christian Tambo Holm's question:

Bad beans or no beans?

I, too, say just rinse and eat the beans. Very little besides water makes it past the skin of the bean so virtually all the added sugar is in the sauce. Drain and rinse thoroughly (which you sho...
