Here's my final results of my 4-week adventures in Geek to Freak-Land. It's been a crazy month of pill-popping, milk guzzling, protein overdosing, and iron-pumping, and loved every moment of it all. Last night, just in time for my 1-month anniversary, I finally was able to my goal: to complete 1 pull-up from a dead hang wit...

I'm nervous and feeling a little bamboozled. Just finished a cheat day that I honestly looked forward to all week, but then I woke up this morning feeling like I didn't really need it and was enjoying the diet so far...but I felt like it was part of the plan so I should stick with it. I'm not doing supplements and only got...

Hi All. I've been on SCD since about mid-April. I haven't been keeping track of inches or lbs, rather I've just been going by how stuff fits. As long as my pants are getting bigger, I'm happy! In the past month I have started Kettlebell Swings and Jogging. So far I am down three sizes and I think around 22 lbs. The photo o...

I've been avoiding looking at the before photos but I'm at the point where I want to, to avoid backsliding during the new year. I'm not doing the scary underwear photos in case people I know stumble across them and I don't have the full dramatic changes of some of you, but I'm happy with the changes I've seen since I started...

Laura, I think that it's great that you've seen some great results. It's also apparent that you're really into helping people get on the right path after stressing the importance of taking pictures along the way after the blip with the metadata on your "before" picture. However, I'm a fan of full transparency and disclosure...

I did a post on my blog last week of my 100 days progress. I started with the slow carb diet but did a bunch of research, did some experimentation, and made modifications as I went. Getting close to my goal of 10%BF.

I had great results following the slow carb diet and a lot of people wanted to know exactly what I ate and how I exercised. So I'm going to post my detailed meal plan here and encourage you to do the same. I certainly did NOT follow all of the rules! My diet was more protein heavy because I really hate beans (Tim said to jus...

Believe it or not, until I had pictures taken I could NOT see any change in myself. The scales and the tape measure said I was changing but I just couldn't "see" it. I really recommend taking pictures like these to confirm. Start Date December 29th 2010 - weight 93.3 kg (205.6lbs) - body fat % 45.3 (horrifying!) Pictures ta...

So i started at 200lbs before starting the four hour body. I didn't measure my body fat just because for one I totally believed that this diet would work and also I could tell i was losing body fat just by the way my clothes started to fit. My first mistake i made on this diet was doing steak for lunch and beef for dinner ...

Just curious: has anyone given in to their cravings for things during the week and had an occasional cookie or sweet or whatever here or there? If so, has it effected your fat loss? A friend of mine has been doing the SCD for a few months now. He's had great results. And he claims that there have only been 2 weeks where he f...

I really out-did myself this time. I was just packing in food wherever it would fit today. This is the most I've eaten in a single day in years. My inner fat kid is once again smiling. I had my normal breakfast of black coffee, eggs, lentils, and broccoli, and 2 hours later the fun began. I had a 32-ounce smoothie with mixe...

I completed what I consider to be Round 1 of my 4HB journey. The goal was to drop fat and tone muscle without converting into anything I couldn't maintain long-term. Overall, I was pleased with the results -- and have started Round 2 this week. Stats from Round 1: * Weight: 235.0 lbs. to 201.8 lbs. * BMI: 33.72 to 28.96...

Which program is better, Occam's or Geek to Freak? I want to build muscle fast, but only have time about twice a week to work out. And I work 9-5 so it's harder to diet. Which workout will get me the most results the fastest with the least amount of diet restrictions?

Even so, I've lost a total of 14 inches at last count! I definitely feel and see a difference. I'm down to a pant size that I haven't seen since high school -...
