    For all the women out there on SCD--period weight

    Oh Boy! Aunt Flo can be such a B****!!!! I do hold weight for two weeks, the week before and the week of. But then, as I approach my last day on my P, I go back to pre-cheat weight and then begin...

    This breakfast shake SAVED me from quitting!

    This combo seems barfy - but maybe it all blends well together. The basic idea is great, I would probably hold off on the ginger/mint/beans/chard with the coffee and chocolate.

    peanuts??? nuts?

    I know that people say to avoid peanuts, but I have used them as a snack on occasion. By snack I mean a small handful, like 1/8 of a cup. Just to get over a hump between lunch and dinner. This h...

    mizeriqua replied to Anthony Schneider's question:

    Watermelon Only!

    Watermelon is a fruit, and quite high in fructose. It is not a SCD approved food. Is this the end of the world? No. Just jump back on track and save that for cheat day only next time.

    Why many here are wrong about cheese....and why they are right

    It has sugar. Truthfully, if you ate one square one night during the week, it's not going to cause some huge weight gain. Hell, you may still lose weight the next morning. I am guessing it would...

    Hi Laurelin, It looks pretty good, however, I don't see enough protein in your breakfast. One egg and on strip of bacon will barely get you 8g of protein. The brussel sprouts might add another 2...

    cucumber salad

    I made a similar salad yesterday. I wouldn't eat too much or even everyday as the tomatoes are a "in moderation" food. But a little bit to accompany your meal shouldn't be so bad.

    mizeriqua replied to Vela LaCasse's question:

    Poke Salad and eggs

    It has all the ingredients for a great high protein and filling breakfast. I don't see anything wrong with that. I've read that poke is poisonous anyway, so spinach is a good alternative.
