    JJJ replied to LikkleNitty's question:

    Hair loss or thinning?

    Do you include the legumes with SCD or go more paleo and just eat meat/eggs and veggies? Many people who do SCD and want faster results cut legumes out and are not doing SCD but rather a low carb ...

    Either use whey or a vegetable starter and leave the foods in jar covered in cloth for about 3 days. Very easy! (you can find ideas online)

    JJJ replied to DexV's question:

    Kettlebells?

    It's really about how strong you are to start off with. If you can, go to the gym or to a crossfit gym and just ask to see the kettlebells because you want to buy one and you don't know which weig...

    JJJ replied to jsgitnalong's question:

    Nut Butter consumption?

    It's always better to start out sticking to SCD "by the book" and start losing fat by the original plan. Do this for at least two weeks. Then, once you know the SCD works for you, star...

    JJJ replied to KarmicDebT's question:

    What do you think of this "slow-carb bread"?

    I don't think you should eat it every day, but I've seen good results if I make this bread (cut out the honey) and exclude any nuts for that day. I also used un-blanched almond flour since it's ch...

    I've found that increasing fat intake is the easiest way to up calories without feeling stuffed. You can never have too much butter if you are an undereater (like me).
