Peas and other foods...

I personally don't eat peas unless someone prepares them in a supposedly SCD-friendly meal for me. However, this is mostly because I have really been cutting the sugars to an absolute minimum for ...

That was hard for me too. I decided instead of buying diet soda I'd buy a huge hazelnut iced coffee. It wasn't nearly as sweet, but it was somethi...

Cheat day timing

SCD breakfast as easy. Just don't eat cheese or bread. Have a big omelet with veggies and some ham or something. After 2 massive cheat meals and enough beer to wash it down 3-4 times I'm usually a...

First Week Results

Help! Diet coke, stevia, sugar free gum..?

Don't sweat the sugar free gum dude. I quit smoking cold turkey near the beginning of scd and straight up replaced cigarettes with sugar free gum chewing, like all day. I think the act of chewing ...

Getting started again on SCD

Your story sounds a bit like mine. 5 years ago I weighed 260 and in the course of 4 months I got down to 180. I was eating almost nothing and spending like half my day doing rigorous exercise, and...

YES broccoli slaw is my JAM! I will try to post pix for a week after I get home if it'll help peeps structure their diet etc

Nov 24th 2012

Second that! Start new. SCD has no prerequisites besides a desire to effect positive change on your lifestyle... And everybody wants that, right?

Another stalling question

One week or even two weeks is NOT a stall. Our bodies' weight fluctuates constantly, it isn't a static downtrend we get when we lose, it's more like a stock market crash. Same with inches. Your hy...

Drewfis H replied to Dianna Ivanov's question:

I'm confused? I thought beans were good!

What they all said. Mostly, give it time. I think everyone that fails SCD or CKD doesn't give it a chance to work. Changing your body requires some ramp up. Your lipid profile returns to normal, c...
