anyone doing intermittent fasting with scd? Results?

My last experiment with a 36-hour fast resulted in a much higher weekly loss than I'd normally see with no side effects at all. Tonnes of water and lots of black coffee kept me going easily and I...

scott_riley replied to Chrissy Rockwell's question:

Pork Roll yea or nay?

I'd say it's an 'in moderation' food, very low carb content but very high in fat too. Around twice as much fat than protein, gram-for-gram. It's also quite sodium-rich, so you'd want to try and ...

Electronic ab stimulators

Electric muscle 'stimulators' are some of the biggest piles of crap on the market right now and are sheer and total wastes of money. If you have flab on your stomach then the only way to make you...

Starting up - food plan

That meal plan sounds fine to me apart from one pretty major ommission. Legumes. There's 0 legumes in any of your meals and this is more akin to a ketogenic diet like Atkins. Your calorie count...

scott_riley replied to Jennifer Hutchinson's question:

Has anyone ever gained everything back on the 2nd cheat day?

The only losses I really care about are my weekly losses. These are taken the morning of my cheat day, on the same scales, in the same scenario (i.e. completely naked right after peeing). All ot...

scott_riley replied to Oliver Hume's question:

Is this an appropriate breakfast?

Add another egg or some egg whites and you're golden. Total protein falls just short of the 30g, but only ever-so-slightly, if you can stomach another egg then I don't think it'd hurt. Although y...

Curious as to how much this will "hurt me"

You'll probably either stall, or at least limit, your overnight weight loss. One tiny bit of cake in the long run won't derail you, at least not physically. Just don't fall into the mental trap o...

Just modifying breakfast as a gateway?

First of all, starting with breakfast is definitely the way forward. With regards to the protein shakes, I know a lot of people drink them to comply with the “30 within 30” rule (30g of prote...

Some spices and garlic will produce bacteria that breaks down really quickly and is released through your pores as you sweat. In your case, it's probably the allicin in the garlic. I've always no...

It's hot outside- what to eat?

Probably not the most imaginative of dishes but you could try a salad with some lentils/mixed beans and lots of spinach. That's what I resort to when I'm feeling lazy in work.
