Binge eating + Cravings after cheat days?

SamGreen - I have to say I'm impressed w/ your cheat day binge! I had previously thought of you as son controlled and restrictive. One of the reasons I'm stopping this diet (besides the fact tha...

Eating at an Indian Restaurant

That's a tough one. I'm a sucker for Saag Paneer...and I know that isn't allowed. You just reminded me though that I want to go to an Indian Buffet on the weekend when I don't follow SCD.

Depression affecting weightloss/gain

I'm sorry about your gf. Yes, depression can affect weightloss - so can lack of sleep (which happens a lot in conjunction w/ depression). I agree that it's great that you are thinking immediatel...

You should be fine. Once I went to drink what I thought was diet soda and noticed it tasted funny. I had drank about 1/4 of the bottle b/f I realized it was regular - eek! It didn't affect my w...

How to approach maintenance?

4hbwoman replied to smidge's question:

What am I doing wrong?

I would definitely weigh yourself, that way you can tweak the diet as you go along and see what works best for you and what doesn't. Otherwise you spend 6 weeks doing something you're not sure is...

Diet Conclusions & Tweaks that didn't work

Ok - so this diet really isn't working for me - I've virtually kicked around the same 4lbs for the last 13 weeks. My hypothesis initially was that I was too close to my goal weight for the diet t...

That may just require sit-ups or crunches b/c your weight in that picture appears perfect.
