Member intro: Paul

Art director that spends too much time sitting and snacking and not enough time working out or eating right. I've made the decision to hold to the 4hb diet and start treating my body right.

I am only 3.5 weeks in, but I'm learning this lesson as well. I will be avoiding sugary treats on cheat day from now on. My body seems to react be...

Cottage Cheese is the one white dairy food that is okay to eat. It's in the book. No corn, but carrots in very small amounts are okay.

Is pink grapefruit juice OK for cheat day?

I'm a newbie at this myself, but I assumed that the grapefruit juice should be 100%, unsweetened grapefruit. Which is very hard to fine. I found Ocean Spray white grapefruit was the only one in my...

Headaches, anyone?

Hello everyone! I'm beginning my third week of the SCD. I have had two great "cheat" days, I literally could not eat anymore at the end of each day. I may not have had a ton of sugary th...

Day 2 and feeling really irritable

In my experience with different diets, including this one (I'm starting week 3) mood changes are normal, especially if you are making dramatic changes. The first week of SCD I was a complete space...

bcstrange01 replied to tuffdadsf's question:

How many reps (over or under) in Occam's?

It isn't about how many you do but the cadence of 5 seconds up and 5 seconds down for the 80-120 seconds and to failure. So if you can do between 8-12 in perfect form and you aren't failing you ne...

Non Cheat Day social drinks?

It depends on what your goals are, and where you're starting from. If you really want the SCD to work, follow it. You should avoid sodas anyway, diet or regular. Stick to water, and have them thro...
