    I’ve experienced similar results as you, Rusty, which discouraged me from continuing beyond a few weeks on the diet. With that said, there seems to be a lot of people finding success with it, so I’m willing to give it another shot again. I’m 6’0″, 196 lbs, so I feel like I could easily lose 20 lbs. (although it’ll probably require a good deal of exercise too).

    @EJC

    You can do this. I’m 5′ 11″ and I started out at 321 lbs. I’ve been doing this for 11 months not I’m down to 235 lbs. You can do it!

    if it helps you out I have a blog of the meals that I make. Almost all of them are four the SCD. The rest are my binge day favorites. I have to go even further because I need to stay gluten/dairy free. My blog is http://www.thecorporatepunk.com. Shoot me an email if want some pointers.

    I agree with the hot sauce, lentils, eggs, and chicken are my staples. I’ve gotten the most luck out of those foods.

    Good luck to every one.

    This was a very interesting post and comments. I’m starting it next week so I’m mentally preparing this week (and getting rid of all the white food in my house by eating it! lol). Unfortunately, I have a significant amount of fat to lose and I hope this works. I listened to Tim’s interview on the Nerdist podcast and considering one of the hosts has lost over 100lbs on it, along with some of the people here, I’m confident it’ll work. I really liked the part in Tim’s book about domino foods. If I know I can’t stop eating a certain food, I’ll avoid it altogether. I had never really thought about that before. I believed (falsely) that I could have just one or a few. That has already helped me and I haven’t officially started the plan yet.

    Anyway, thanks for the post and the comments have been interesting, too. Good luck everyone!!

    I went on this diet and lost 20 lbs each month without working out at all. I went from 195 to 130 quick. I would’ve lost more if I had worked out. If you only lost 4 lbs then you did not stick to the diet at all. I lost all that weight even though I cheated some days and had a cupcake or other snack. I know many people who have gone on this same diet and I’ve never heard of anyone not losing 20+ lbs a month.

    You also have some things wrong and you misunderstand.
    You are allowed to eat cheese, meat, and veggies.
    No fruits or sugars.
    No pastas, potatoes, breads or rice.
    You are allowed to eat anything you want 1 day a week. Pick a day, mine is every Tuesday. On that 1 day each week you can eat anything you want and you are expected to binge eat. The reason for this is because it shocks your metabolism.

    Can I incorporate meal replacement shakes (adkins shakes) with the slow card diet?

    I have done this diet and have lost wieght with it. Being socialy active makes it harder to stick with one cheat day especially around the holidays.
    Yes Stevia is allowed. And the biggest thing I found by drastically cutting the sugars for a long time. When you go to cheat with a cupcake, suddenly it’s too sweet and it becomes disgusting. It took me the whole day to finish the cupcake, when before I could scarf it down and look for seconds.
    The diet works, and don’t forget the supplements mentioned in the book, some of them are hard to find. Few of my local helth foods stores carried them. But when I found a store that did, the extra boost that they provided was great

    Know it’s a bit late on this response to Atkin’s shakes but answer is…well no. They contain dairy which is perfectly fine on Atkins but not on SCD.

    Few years ago I went from 280 to 220 (I’m 6’3″) on the Atkins diet and did notice a slowdown in weight loss whenever I ate cheese. Yes it causes an insulin spike but also takes the longest to digest.

    When I started the SCD didn’t pay attention to ingredients and was frustrated I wasn’t losing weight as quickly as on Atkins. I was drinking the Atkins shakes and eating the bars as a snack like I did previously. Would use the GrillMate seasoning packets to marinate steaks/chicken. Also used pork sausage with my omelettes in the morning.

    The problem? Milk with the Atkins products and sugar with the rest. Changed up to ground turkey with 3 jumbo eggs in the AM + decaf chamomile tea , rotisserie chx with pinto and salsa and then just started marinating meats in olive oil and adding a seasoning rub (without sugar) with broccoli or spinach for dinner. Instant positive effect.

    I still use Splenda and have noticed no ill effects. Timclaims that it causes an insulin spike but no research out there has been able to conclusively prove that. At least none that I’ve been able to find.

    So with that small hiccup in the beginning I’m definitely down though I’m not stepping on the scale anymore. Just going by the mirror. Hope this helps.
