Cheat day... buhhhh....

Oh man, I am having the exact same day! I was all giggly in the grocery store buying all the things on my list that I craved during the week (donuts, kit kats, oreos, Ben & Jerry's, cereal) an...

Sugar-free Dark Chocolate, an absolute no?

I say try it! I think Tim promotes finding a way to make the diet work for you. If it stalls weight loss, then skip it maybe or find another alternative. I, personally, enjoy sugar-free jello late...

Cheat day vs 2 cheat meals per week?

I saw an interview Tim did where he mentioned one person having success with two cheat days per week. You could definitely give it a try but there is always the chance it may slow down results. My...

Day Ten SCD

I'm on day ten as well! My story reads verbatim, literally. I've done nothing but try out new diets for the last eight years of my life, so much so that when I meet up with friends they always ask...

Day 9! So, I've tried every diet under the sun and usually around this time I start to falter and fail. On SCD, though, I feel like I could maintai...

smellslikesound asked a question:

how much is too much?

I'm so happy with this eating lifestyle because I can eat black beans again whereas in former short-lived diets I could not. However, I'm concerned I'm eating a bit too much. I'm eating around two...
