Nicole Pape replied to Chris Platt's question:

hummus? bean substitute

I´m sorry, but no. Hummus is no bean substitute. As chick peas are on the moderate list.

Nicole Pape replied to Liz Allen's question:

Women - when did you implement exercise on this diet? I think I'm ready....Where to start?

I bought myself a heavier kettle bell. And, well, it´s a little bit too heavy so that I hardly ever use it... I go horse back riding 3 to 4 times a week (although the horse does most of the work....

Frustrated... Not working?

Shouldn´t there be 4 hours between the meals? I would cut out the second lunch. You can have as much as you want during your first lunch! No calory counting! If you get hungry before dinner you h...

When did you become "Diet Confident?"

I got "diet confident" after about 5 months on the SCD. It just works. It feels good not having to think about the weight any more, except for, how good it feels not to have to worry abo...

Nicole Pape replied to Jordan Dinning's question:

I don't think it's working!

As is said before: take more measurements. You are probably losing fat and gaining muscles. You don´t have to do any excercise. Skip the almond milk and squash. Have your cheat days!!!

Nicole Pape replied to Timothy Chung's question:

How many calories approximately i should intake daily?

You are not supposed to count calories! You can eat until you are full. And it´s not "low" but "slow carb". You don´t reduce the amount of carbs: you eat slow moving carbs, t...

I reached my goal weight - now what?!

Congratulations on your goal! I reached my goal as well, and I have (mild) cheat-weekends instead of a cheat day. It works very well for me. I´m holding my weight and, occasionally, I have che...

Hunger problems

Don´t forget to add beans and / or lentils to your meals every day. They make you stay full for a while (and they make happy, as well!). I was on a short holiday with my grandma, my sister and my...

Write down what you usually eat. And don´t skip cheat day.

For more fat: how about bacon, spare ribs, etc. I use for example walnuts to increase the taste of brussels sprouts (or fresh green beans). I love...

Me too. Sweets of all kind. Although I must say, it was more like a habit, now that I know, that I don´t need it and that it´s not tasting as good as before... But then christmas is coming soon...

Worst taste in my mouth.

I have that mostly in the mornings. And as you say, I get that as well shortly after cheat day. And, yes, you get into ketosis that fast, if you go strict on SCD after cheat day. @Akane: Ketosis ...
