Any tips for surviving the holidays?
Week 2 here and my calendar is blowing up with Holiday events. I realize we get one cheat day, but I have back to back events on some weeks. I'm not planning on going crazy and stuffing my face on those days, but sticking to a SCD diet at holidays is nearly impossible. It's not so much about the temptation as it is a reality of needing to eat something when there isn't anything slow carb around. Help!
The Best Answer
Surely even with events you're not going to be eating three non-SCD meals a day?
I would suggest (and I'm not an expert by any means) that you stick as much as you can to the SCD (breakfast, dinner or breakfast, lunch) and use damage control tactics when you are going to cheat.
The best thing about SCD (in my opinion) is that you are really never in a position where there isn't SOMETHING you can eat that isn't part of the diet. Load up on meat, salad and vegetables. Avoid the normal banned foods.
You can always move your cheat day around, provided you allow 5 days of SCD prior.
Finally, if all else fails, if you can always go to the event, eat whatever and get back on the horse the next day.
