    There's something about the SCD "system" that makes it very easy for me to follow it. It's clear to me, it's logical. It's easier for me...

    The diet works, I don't know how well it will work now that I'm feeling this way - but it worked before. The thing is, I'm not "feeling"...

    I'm not in this for a great body dude, I'm in this for health. I just don't feel as healthy as I did before. I felt strong, energetic, alert... no...

    Alon Tako asked a question:

    My body is rejecting the foods?

    Hey all, I've done SCD for a few months, and then I took a break for 2 months or so, still being careful but not following the rules. During these couple of months I gained about 2-3 kilograms. ...

    Alon Tako replied to Tillyander Moore's question:

    can even the smallest amount of sugar set you back

    Red wine is forbidden according to the basic SCD rules, but Tim Ferriss says he saw that 2 cups of red wine a day don't affect the diet. SCD is quite solid, and allows you to "hiccup" h...

    Broke my plateau in a weird way

    Hey everyone, I was having a very frustrating plateau until about 2 weeks ago, at which point I made some changes which broke it... but those changes weren't "legal". So I was stuck o...

    week 5 update!!

    Could you post your meals and schedules? Do you work out? I'm in a major stagnation for the past 3 weeks and I'm at a loss as to how to solve it. Maybe I'll see something in your plan that'll he...

    Alon Tako asked a question:

    2 meals a day?

    I'm trying to break through a plateau and one of the things I'm thinking of, is maybe trying to follow my body's natural needs a bit, instead of the diet's rules which are flat for everyone. My b...

    I'm not sure I ate enough of them to really make that much of an impact. It was nothing regular, every now and then I'd choose them as my veggie f...

    I'll definitely stick to it for a few more weeks, and track it the best way I can... but I hope to see results soon. On my weight, it seems weird ...

    I generally dislike anything added to neither coffee nor tea, so I never add anything to them - ever out of the diet. I believe I'm getting 1/2-1 ...

    About eating enough calories - I'm a big guy. I've been fat my entire life, and I gotta lose over 40 kilograms of fat to be anywhere near thin. ...

    The pickled herring is new, we just bought it a couple of days ago for the first time since the diet began. I usually eat 3 eggs (18 grams), a hal...

    5th week - major slowdown?

    Hey everyone, I've been doing the SCD for the past 4 weeks, just started my 5th week. At first it seemed like I went down in weight, but over the past 2 weeks it looks like it kinda stopped. It...

    How does this recipe sound?

    Hey all, Every time I diet, I have a few meals I'm not sure about. This time the rules are very simple, but I found a recipe that REALLY fills me up and is very satisfying, so it seems a bit too ...

    Alon Tako replied to UB40's question:

    First week...2 lbs. down only :(

    I didn't lose much weight at the first week as well. First week results shouldn't be taken too seriously. You could have lost water weight or muscle weight, or even fat. It could be the different...

    The idea is to keep at it. Examine what you do, look at everything very closely, try to "purify" your process. Take this plateau as a ch...

    Don't give up. I'm new to this, and every diet I've ever, EVER had always ended up in a plateau. It always broke me. Looking back, giving up was...

    Oils and fats, what are the rules?

    Hey everyone, Before going into the "oils and fats" question, I'd like to give a little detail about myself up to now if that's ok... I started the diet 2 weeks ago (tomorrow is my sec...

    i'm 500 pounds, day 45 on diet and 0 weight change

    I noticed 2 things I might put an eye on if I were in your situation. 1. You are eating a ton of fat. It might not be much when you judge each meal separately, which is arguable by the way, but s...

    Post-workout starchy food
