Anybody gone Paleo?
I've been doing the SCD for 5 weeks now and have been having stomach problems after eating the beans. It doesn't seem to matter what type - I cook them myself and make black, white, and lentils. They make me feel bloated and gassy - my stomach was best on my Saturday cheat day this week when I had yoghurt, fruit, and everything but beans.
I've done the Paleo diet in the past and am going to try to merge the SCD with Paleo - having a cheat day once a week, but eating a little bit of fruit during the week and taking out the beans. Has anybody else tried this?
I'm also not thrilled with my results on the SCD - both weight-wise and how I feel. My energy levels have been lower, my stomach has been upset, and I have only lost about 4 lbs.
The Best Answer
I haven't had a bean in 5 months. But I haven't had fruit either except as a cheat meal.
I would try it first without the beans for a week or two before you add the fruit and see how that goes.
If you find yourself needing more energy I'd up the protein.
If you do add fruit at some point you could consider tryingprinciples. Such as only eating fruit in the morning or eating fruit alone as a meal or 30 minutes before meals. Or only after you workout. I do think you'll have better results without the fruit, but this method may be an option to consider.
How much damage and weight gain are you doing on cheat day? How is your strictness to the rest of your diet besides beans?
