who skips SCD breakfast on cheat day??
is it really that big of a deal to skip the traditional 30g protein/legumes/greens/etc. as the first meal of cheat day? if i'm reading "damage control" correctly, the SCD breakfast is somehow supposed to blunt spikes in blood sugar/insulin and prevent total self-destruction throughout the day.
however, if part of reason we have a cheat day is to seriously up our calorie count, what does it matter if we go whole hog, start to finish?

My first cheat day I didn't have a slow carb breakfast, I just went to town on pastries and sweet iced coffee. But my second cheat day, I had 30g of protein first thing in the morning (lots of eggs whites), because that's what my body wanted/was craving. After that I went total self annihilation on the sweets again. I didn't see a significant difference in weight/fat loss between those two weeks, so I would say it doesn't matter so much.
Last time i did SCD i didn't notice any major difference, thought after a while i was so used to my SCD breakfast so i simple pr routine started my day with it.
This time around i have mad e afew changes.. getting my protein from eggs, adding some extra bacon and then also adding some bread and milk that i normally cannot have. So i make a mix of SCD and cheat day breakfast :p
Will see how it works out this time
