What are your exceptions?

Sugar free popsicles in the tropical variety (hello pineapple!) have saved my banana on a number of occasions! Sweetener yes, but if Tim recommends the jell-o for such things, I think the popsicle...

Bacon wrapped eggs

I'm commenting on this to bump it, because it is so good and deserves attention! I make these every week and keep some in the fridge for snacks or quick breakfast; 45 secs in the microwave re-hea...

Soylent replied to guestnurse's question:

can I skip my cheat day?

Some folks don't do cheat day, and see fine results, so it may be a matter of what is tolerable for you. As people say, experiment and track! For me, the psychological benefit of not feeling like ...

Soylent replied to Dana W's question:

Guilt on Cheat day?

I don't, but that's mainly because I consider it part of the diet, and not a "cheat" at all. It's just a no rules day. At first I was gorging myself on everything I could lay eyes on and...

Agreed! On my menu for tomorrow is brunch at Du-par's (they have THE BEST pancakes I have ever had in my life, I mean seriously other-worldly) and a dinner of comfort food in the form of my dad's ...

So are tomatoes, avocados, cucumbers, and bell peppers. Since those are fine in moderation, olives should be too.

Soylent replied to Kao's question:

are artichokes SCD friendly?

I'm not sure I trust that site. It says olives are a no, and I cannot find any reason as to why that might be the case.

Digestive Issues?

I'm no doctor, but.... seems unlikely to me that it's a dietary issue since you've been eating the same food for months and only been experiencing this in the last few days. Is there anything else...

My favourite chicken is of the already roasted variety at the supermarket! They usually don't cost that much more and are good, not to mention fast! Roasting chicken yourself is easy. Get a roast...

I'm not sure I recall reading anywhere (in 4HB or otherwise) that it was better for fat loss? I think it's just healthier for you in general as it's more natural - and grain feed actually alters t...

In praise of Cheat Day

Kettlebell beginner weight for Inactive Slugs?
