Months after starting the SCD, I ran into an article in the UK’s Daily Mail explaining the science behind postponing eating, which further reinforced the science behind cheat day on the SCD.
When I don’t have time to cook at home, I either get a chicken bowl from Chipotle (no dairy or corn) or order a carne asada (grilled steak) plate at my local burrito shop, which consists of steak, pinto beans, and a salad (no cheese). I started the SCD on a Wednesday and did not have my first cheat day until the second Saturday. I did my part, building the strength through discipline and will power to succeed on the SCD.
Armed with a basic overview of the SCD and a supportive online community (like 4HBTalk), Ricardo lost 150 pounds. If you have any Slow-Carb stories (or before-and-after pics), I’d absolutely love to see them in the comments! Watch The Tim Ferriss Experiment, the new #1-rated TV show with "the world's best human guinea pig" (Newsweek), Tim Ferriss. This diet really works-though I dont strictly follow it now-I did use it to get rid of 10 pounds after having my baby. Finally, there were very few moments during that week that I didn’t have a huge glass of green or white tea in hand.
Incidentally, most of the supplements listed were to treat or prevent deficiencies or for other benefits I’m targeting. The supplements I consider most beneficial to my weight loss are the agg, pagg, and cissus.
If you need to supplement between meals, nut butters are good – peanut, sunflower, almond, etc.
The fructose will hurt the insuline sensitivity you have developed but feel free to experiment for four weeks. I really appreciate the awareness and energy that you bring to food, eating, body image, and exercise in 4HB.
Hello Tim, after writing my address on your facebook about taking a polish 4 hour body I got a weird email from USPS about some problem with package. I have a condition called PCOS and I am insulin resistant, PCOS makes it very difficult for me to lose weight as my body does not process carbohydrates correctly. You are exercising too much, follow the rules and use Tim’s recommendations for minimizing the effects of the cheat day. A low-carb ketogenic diet is an eating plan where the body uses ketones to fuel the brain and body instead of glucose.

It was when I realized that overweight people on TV, told they would die because of their weight, weighed less than I did. Instead of it prominently featuring my face, my whole midsection was featured, slumping over the chair. This, coupled with the outstanding community aspect (via blogs and personal websites), has led to my success and high compliancy rate (over 90% complaint in the past 9 months).
If you’re trying to lose fat, commit to testing The Slow-Carb Diet for two weeks starting this Wednesday.
Last, if you know someone who needs (or wants) to lose weight, please tell them about Slow-Carb somehow. I have read all your books so am a big fan I actually started my muse company Zen Green Tea from an idea in 4 hr body- Green Tea! I didn’t want to let even 1 minute pass between my exercises and my eating) and also at 90 minutes after eating. Try running shorter distances after fasting 10-12 hours, then incrementally increase the distance, and dont eat gels etc while training.

If any email you get, even one from a friend: speaks in vague language like that one, or just gives a link or an attachment, assume it is spam.
Did you stop exercising when starting diet then slowly add routines and track the results, more exercise will not accelerate the weight loss but in fact may have the opposite effect. Most people who eat a standard American diet are what I like to call sugar-burners not fat-burners. I’ve seen the tremendous difference it can make in the lives of entire families, not just individuals.

Does it have to be on the “crazy” day or can you eat cheese with meals or snacks?
Just a quick question, is it necessary to maintain the SCD for the rest of your life, or can you sprinkle in some fruits and whole grains during the week once you’ve achieved your weight goal? You can’t create your own rules the cheat is only be 12 hours long same breakfast as usual. A low-carb ketogenic diet can be very helpful not only for weight loss but for blood sugar regulation and consistent energy because fat is a very stable source of fuel. Whether it’s life-or-death or just looking better in jeans, if you know someone who can benefit, please pass it on. Best of luck with your writing- whatever you are struggling with just persevere and you will get there.. Example on 6 mile run the other day, after 3 miles I was done, I had to walk back to the gym.

I do drink some diet soda and sugar free red bull, to keep the engines running, but I do also drink a good amount of water as well. Coffee and a low-sugar Atkins shake in the morning, and usually some sort of meat for dinner & lunch, either turkey or chicken. Even though my personal life has had some recent downturns, I’m still sticking with it and loving the results!
