Are women finding success with 4 Hour Body? Over at 4-HBTalk we are discussing this and the women are not seeing very good results. Any feedback you can offer? I read about Laura Cox on this site - way to go. She changed things up - no beans at main meals, no snacks. Look forward to your replies.

Is there's a special recipe adapted to women for the protein shake? As soon as I started taking it I got fatter the next morning. Then I found out it had 975 calories, which is 450 calories for breakfast alone, plus my breakfast, no wonder! Anyway, should I be skipping breakfast altogether and just having the protein shake? ...

Anyone out there start the SCD without the supplements and cold showers, then begin them with success? I have never taken supplements and the idea of a freezing cold shower scares me, but I am willing to give it a try if people think their success on SCD was linked to these factors. I am just over 2 weeks into this, and real...
