I go to them when I need a "filler" food... ya know, something to plump up a meal and make it more hearty while still being "paleo/slow carb". But I have a sneaking suspicion that if I was to cut beans out (i.e my beloved kidney and black beans, etc), I would be losing fat faster. Could they be the tipping point to me losing...

Hi all, I have decided to stop SCD.... It just not for me. In 3 months (on and off) I have only managed to lose and gain 5 pounds and I realise I may not reach my goal in time for my birthday in July 2012 at this rate. I know the scale isnt the best barometer but my pants are still tight so nothing is happening. Even thoug...

I am at the end of week 2 and I just did pre weigh in before my cheat day. I'm so sad! I have plateaued after losing 1.9kg in my first week, I would be ok if I saw inch loss instead but absolutely nothing. I'm really disappointed, not because the diet is hard, actually it is not far from what I was already eating but simpl...

I just finished my 21st week of the slow carb diet. I have gone from 201 lbs to 146 lbs. I have lost consistently every week, even if it was only a pound some weeks. This is my first week not losing anything and I am devestated. I work so hard and don't understand why this happened. I am going to post my meals and see if the...

I'm almost reaching my set weight loss goal with the SCD diet - I estimate I'll be there by the end of this week. Definitely will post before / after photos when I get there. Started with 99.5 kg (220 pounds), I'm on 92 kg right now (202 pounds). I wanted to get to 90kg (198+ pounds) and lose roughly 10 kg, but as I'm seein...

I used to go to the gym a lot, roughly 3-4x a week and usually did weights followed by 20-30mins running and 10 mins cycling. That was back when I managed to get from 228-around 140lbs. However when I stopped I lost some of the muscle I built up and a large part of my weight loss, despite still being active, was probably mus...

So 11 weeks have gone by pretty fast! Made it through Christmas without a single gain, despite having 2 cheat days on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. This is the first Christmas/New Year I have not gained weight but actually lost weight! I'm so thrilled about that. As of this morning I have lost another 2.75lbs from my last ...
