When you say 4 oz of protein, do you mean the weight of the whole piece of meat? Because 4 oz of sockeye salmon contains 31 g of protein, whereas ...

Thought this would be a PM, but meh.

I've been reading your posts the past few days, and your situation really hits home for me. I was also 20 when I decided enough was enough, and it was time to lose weight. I hadn't weighed myself ...

Four weeks in, not a change...frustrated

You don't mention how much of each food item you're getting. Be sure that you're getting more vegetables than legumes and meat/protein each meal. Something else I've read about (but not experienc...

Regarding Stevia, there have been studies that hint that it may prompt an insulinemic response.

Honey contains sugar, and avoiding sugars is the point of SCD.

Jul 13th 2012
42Wired replied to Anthony Schneider's question:

Honey? Good or bad?

You might have an unbearable sweet tooth because you have an addiction to sweet things, and SCD deprives you of anything sweet. You just have to push back against it until your cheat day; then you...

42Wired replied to Anthony Schneider's question:

Dark Chocolate

My instinct is that it is not SCD-friendly because it usually contains sugar; it's candy, after all. Even if you found sugar-free dark chocolate, I would only consume it sparingly.

42Wired replied to Dreamer's question:

8 weeks and kinda frustrated :(

Since you didn't post the quantities of each item you ate, it's difficult to judge, but what really raises a red flag to me is that you're only eating vegetables at first lunch. Try adding broccol...

Back on the Wagon (Need Feedback)

After having so little #variety in my diet it caused me to develop food allergies, I took a break from SCD. Now I'm getting back on the wagon. I made a new diet with more vegetables (because I was...

Food Allergies from Repititious Eating

Fruit before soccer

One of the rules listed in 4 Hour Body for Slow Carb Diet is to avoid fruit: 3. Don’t Eat Fruit – Fruit is high in sugar and is not a must have for a diet. Fructose can be a killer.

Almost ZERO weight loss after 32 days- frustrated to say the least.

chestnut flour

I agree; try to break your dependency on sweet-tasting things. Doing so should also eliminate some desire to cheat on non-cheat days.

Doing damage control all the time can put you at risk for malnutrition and muscle-loss since the food would be moving through you so quickly.
