    To elaborate on this; Tim expressly says that you can drink up to 450ml of diet soda per day in the book. I cut soda and energy drinks out cold tu...

    Tom Vella-Lott replied to Dianna Ivanov's question:

    I'm confused? I thought beans were good!

    I would stick with it a bit longer. Your body needs to adjust to the no-carb thing. I didn't start seeing good daily weight loss until the second week. This diet works for me; I put on 2kg on Satu...

    Different Ratios of Protein, Legumes and Vegetables at Different Meals

    What is the biggest problem you face while on SCD?

    Breakfast is breaking my spirit! Help

    Tom Vella-Lott replied to Alyssa Jones's question:

    Any tips for surviving the holidays?

    slow-cookin'

    I looooove chilli con carne and it's quite slow-carb friendly, aside from the lack of rice. You don't need a slow cooker for it though; I make mine in a pan... Off the top of my head the recipe wo...
