5-HTP supplements help curb sugar cravings and cheating!

Hi, everyone! I started SCD last year but had mixed success sticking with it, especially around high-stress periods (college final exams, for example). I would especially go back to binging on a ...

Hahah, thanks. I'm just so used to crash-dieting, and it's really frustrating not seeing instant changes, but I'll try to keep up with it. Enough ...

Starlily replied to Sam Green's question:

How do calories work on this diet, going crazy!

I'm in the same boat as you--I'm obsessed with food and probably have an undiagnosed eating disorder of some sort with the way that I go on starvation-and-binge cycles. I started the SCD because I...

Thank you so much! I feel a bit more calm now after my initial weight-gain-scale-panic mode and will keep on doing the diet religiously (throwing ...

Thanks so much for your encouragement! It could be a combination of period water retainment and my cheat day effects, that's true... it was my fir...

Starlily asked a question:

Gained 6 pounds in Week 2--HELP! :(

I started the SCD a week and half ago. I was 100% compliant for the first five days and weighed in at 110.2 lbs before my first Cheat Day. I didn't weigh myself the day after my Cheat Day (too man...

Oct 21st 2011

I'm looking to lose 10 pounds (but it might be 15 now since I might've gained a bit of weight, eek!). I'd really love to do something that didn't ...

Oct 21st 2011

I'd especially love to know if you calorie-counted, limited intake of legumes or other "moderation" foods (peanut butter, cottage cheese...

Oct 20th 2011

Omgosh, that's amazing! That's exactly what I want to do--go from a relatively healthy weight to an even better weight (for me, at least). That's ...

Oct 20th 2011

Yeah, I've tried to stay away from "moderate" foods, but I do have a weak spot for peanut butter and cottage cheese now since they're th...

Oct 19th 2011

Thanks so much! Yeah, I started this diet too because I was just SO sick of calorie-counting, but I can also pack away a lot of food, so I got wor...

Great--I ended up postponing it. The funny thing is that I didn't even eat all of the things that I said I would on the day of... I'll try working...

Starlily replied to LizMir's question:

Back to college, back to starting weight

I'm a college student too and completely know what you mean about it being difficult to eat healthily in the dining halls--I always gain back so much weight the moment I get to school! I just sta...

Starlily asked a question:

Postpone Cheat Day if I cheated during week?

I just started the SCD this week, and it's been pretty hard for me, especially since I'm a HUGE lover of carbs and desserts (could probably eat an entire box of cereal or an entire loaf of bread i...

Starlily asked a question:

Does the SCD work for petite women?

All the success stories are so motivating, but I've always found the effect of certain diets on myself to be rather disheartening. I'm 20 years old, 5'2", 110 lbs, and often have a hard time ...

College student fighting an eating disorder

For as long as I remember, I've been a yo-yo dieter, constantly going on starvation or fad diets to lose a few pounds only to gain it all back later while binging during final exams or midterms. I...
