8 Week Results! Pictures Included!

Your results are great! So inspiring too. It's crazy to me that your goal weight is where I started yet even though I was that weight I was so heavy for my frame/height. It's so weird to me how th...

I Googled this but couldn't find a satisfying answer...

You really need to be eating more carbs from vegetables and legumes, even if your legume intake is just half a cup of lentils a day because your body needs carbs to burn as fuel along with fat, th...

Before and After (Pictures)

So, I'm posting these here as an incentive to get my arse straight into gear again after indulging over the week in lieu of my time of the month. As you can see, there is very minimal change in ...

Hey Starlilly, I found a post that Laura made a while ago, and I think it's what you're after. Hope it helps! http://4hourpeople.com/question/33...

I don't eat that much on cheat day either, which may be a problem with stalling. I just can't stomach so much food without getting heartburn or fe...

Thanks for the reply! At this point, I'm really just having difficulty eating such heavy real food for breakfast, because the 30g of protein each ...

Getting Back on Track

I fell off the wagon a little this week. I don't know what the damage is, but I feel sluggish and gross, so I know it's not good. It was namely because I was expecting TOTM so I changed my cheat d...

Thanks for this. Tuna is just so convenient because it's in a can, but I think I'll just have to haul ass and eat chicken or beef instead. Thank y...

goodmonsters replied to Starlily's question:

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

Sigh, I'm in the same boat as you. I lost 2lbs after Week 2 and now two days after my cheat day in Week 3 I've put it back on. I have to remind myself that my period is due any day now, but I stil...

How much Tuna is safe?

Oh shit. I have like two cans with lunch every day. .... AM I GOING TO DIE.

Same here! My dad made a comment like “We used to have to force you to eat eggs, and now you’re eating them by the dozen”.

Thanks Akane! I really think it is the psychological need for carbs that has me freaking out a little, but you comments have been really helpful! ...

Oct 19th 2011

Hi Akane! That's actually REALLY inspiring because I'm following it to a T (I'm on Day 3) and hoping that means that it will take me less time. My...

Oct 19th 2011

Starlilly, if you're eating lots of protein and vegies, I don't think there's a need to count calories. If you over consume "moderate" f...

I should add I don't eat a lot in general, just high-carb stuff so it's probably just a case of what Tim says about having to make my meals bigger...

Hi JoyMc! Thank you for your reply! The 'split-peas' are also called yellow lentils (nearly wrote yentls, haha!) so I thought they would be okay. ...

Day 2 - Newbie Menu!

I'm only on Day 2, but this morning after breakfast, I had this weird feeling of lightness, even though I'd consumed the most I've ever eaten for that meal, so I proceeded to walk in the sunshine ...

Hahaha, no, I can't say I've tried that Chihuahua diet. But thank you for the advice! Since posting this question I have read the book cover to co...

I agree completely with this! Anything from not getting enough sleep, to overtraining, to not eating enough or drinking enough water can cause the...

goodmonsters replied to Captain Awesome's question:

Who has your ideal bod?

This beautiful girl, pre-baby. She's still banging, but I won't ever forget watching her for the first time in Desperado and thinking I want to look like that when I grow up!

goodmonsters replied to Starlily's question:

Does the SCD work for petite women?

goodmonsters asked a question:

Am I doomed to fail if I've tried 1001 fad diets?

As usual, when I'm looking for answers about diet and weight loss some know it all (who I am usually related to), will give their 2 cents worth and I'll follow their advice and usually find myself...

Heart Palpitations Anyone?

I'm no expert on the subject, but as a sufferer of GAD I've experienced heart palpitations on many occasions and they have always been harmless. It is possible that if you've switched to the slow ...
