Typical Day on the SCD

Thought I'd share what a typical day on the Slow Carb Diet looks like :) I recommend sticking to Organic products as much as you can, just because of all the chemicals in non-organic foods - but you don't have to eat organic if you're on a budget. Also note that you can increase the portion size to whatever your body needs - eat as much of the good food (Lean proteins, legumes, vegetables) as you want - that's the beauty of the SCD! Just remember the 4 main rules:

1) No White Carbs- no bread, wheat, rice (even brown), oatmeal, sugar, milk, dairy, potatoes etc...
2) Repeat the Same Meals - Keep it Simple so you don't fall off track!
3) Don't Drink your Carbs - Drink lots of H20. Coffee and Tea are okay as long as you don't add sugar.
    A glass or 2 of red wine is okay too.
4) No Fruit
5) Binge 1x Weekly and eat whatever you'd like (this keeps your metabolism from plummeting :)

Breakfast:

1 Hardboiled Egg, 1/2 Avocado, Few slices of Red Onion, Handful of Spinach topped with balsamic vinegar and olive oil

Black Ganoderma Coffee with Cinnamon

Lunch:

2 Chicken Legs
Salad: Spinach, Sweet Peas, Tomato, Red Onion and Cucumber w/Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil
AGG Supplements

Snack:

Handful of Raw Pumpkin Seeds

Dinner:

2 Chicken Legs
1 cup Pinto Beans
Steamed Broccoli
Decaf Green Tea
1 Glass Red Wine (stick to Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot - both low in sugar and okay on SCD)

Bon Appetit!

    Hi Rachel,

    Nice blog , Its very neat. I like your summary of the SCD. I've been bodybuilding for almost 2 years now but SCD + thermal loading has made me see my sixpack for the first time in my life and only in 2 weeks.

    Keep it up and Good luck.

  4. I have added in an AM Protein Shake (prior to breakfast)- Hemp Protein Powder & Fiber mixed with iced water and a hint of stevia within 30 min of waking...tracking the results of this addition right now, but has definitely helped with protein intake :)
