    At your height and weight you should be able to lose about one to two lbs a week. Took me sixty days to go from 198 to 175.

    Nope. I had results exactly like yours. I would gain 3-5 lbs, lose it by Wednesday. What matters is that your pre-cheat day weights continue to go down every Saturday.

    Being realistic, you will not lose 3-4 lbs a week on SCD. The ab exercises don't hurt, but they don't help to get abs to the surface either. Visible abs is ninety percent diet. What is your waist ...
