I have never read a reddit post this long before, or all the comments. You write very well.

I'll start with the budet issue. I do try to be as frugal as possible as well, but can 'afford' most of the food and to by expensive organic stuff sometimes too. I would make lean ground beef a staple. I would take the time to seek out a butcher or farmer so you know where the meat is coming from, and can usually get it at big box store prices. Where I live that is ~$3 per lb. I would also get some beef liver. This is actually one of the most nutrient dense source of food you can eat. One way to work it into your food with it being palatable is to mix it in with the ground beef. I also eat a ton of bacon. You should be able to get it for pretty cheap as well.

For eggs it was mentioned already but eat the yokes, Tim even says that hidden in the Testosteron chapter. I would again try to find a farmer that you can get pastured eggs for cheap.

For veggies I find that frozen is usually more expensive. Buy fresh whatever is on sale and paying attention to all the grocery store flyers is important. Again finding farms and farmers markets too. Some communities have Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) where you can put in some time working on the garden in exchange for some of the produce, I would look into that.

Also if you google for "paleo budget shopping list" or things like that there are a lot of resources. SCD comes from the same foundation as Paleo (listen to Tim on Robb Wolfs Podcast from Dec 2010 for more info).

It seems like you may not have a lot of financial resource but do have quite a bit of time. I would use that time to learn as much as possible about nutrition, for both physical health and mental health. Tim's book is a great starting point but it doesn't quite fill in a lot of the gaps. There are a lot of false info in conventional nutrition info and he didn't quite debunk them all enough. You can get books for free at your local library, hopefully it is a decent library. If not there are other ways to find them and most of these people have great websites and blogs as well.

  1. It Starts With Food I have read a lot of books, and if this one came out sooner it would have saved me a lot of time. It is the best book by far. The blog is at
  2. Robb Wolf's podcast. This has been huge place for me to learn about some of the more scientific aspects of nutrition. I also read his bood The Paleo Solution and it is a good read.
  3. Gary Taubes. He has a ton of interviews and talks on youtube and around the web he also has 2 good book, "Good Calories Bad Calories" and "Why We Get Fat"
  4. Underground Wellness podcast and the Dark Side Of Fat Loss Ebook by Sean Croxton. This podcast is all interviews by some of the best nutrition gurus out there (all of the previously mentioned have been on his podcast plus way more) The ebook is quite good as well
  5. Emily Dean she has a blog here and She also has a book which I just found out about.
  6. Stephan Guyenet Blog at he is quite technical but very good source
  7. Chris Kresser has a great blog and podcast as well.
  8. Dave Asprey blog and podcast. He has really good stuff on stress and sleep hacking
  9. Marks Daily Apple by Mark Sission great blog and forum. Also has a couple of books out call Primal Blueprint.

    There are also some small 4 HB specific blogs. hisc1ay has a good one Mine is at Luke at and by Brian and by Stephen.

    Also the forum is quite active and has a lot of helpful people.

    To address some of the other specific things you asked about. The eggs I already mentioned I wrote about it a while ago if you want more detailed info

    I personally don't think beans are the best choice for you give your history of thyroid issues. I would definitely stay away from peanuts, I know you didn't mention them but they are a legume, and the protein lectin in them can not be digested. This is why so allergies to them can be so sever in some people. I can see how your thyroid issues may have disappeared when you started eating more. Fasting that much and eating that little would cause a huge stress on you adrenals and your cortisol would be through the roof.

    I think roots and tubers like sweet potatoes, yam, taro, carrots, squash and other starchy veggies (potatoes might be ok for you too, they have a higher glycemic index but if you are eating them with fat an protein the glycemic load should be low) would be a safer choice for you. They have a glycemic index of ~37 which is pretty low and have very few inflammatory proteins.

    I also would try to limit starchy foods to 1-2 meals a day not all 3. A high fat and protein breakfast will keep you satiated for a long time and provide a ton of nutrition. Here is a good example although I would avoid the fruit until you are at your goal weight

    I also recommend to people to try a gluten free cheat day. It worked wonders for me and most people that try seem to feel much better and lose fat much faster as well. I try and recommend to eat as much fruit as possible on cheat day. Helps build up that store of liver glycogen and help with any sweet tooth issues.

    For exercise looks pretty good what you are doing, especially since you are noticing a difference so fast. When you start to plateau or get bored of those exercises adding in some stuff from the kiwi workout would be good, and other KB stuff like cleans and snatches if you feel comfortable doing them. Learning the more advanced stuff too is fun, like turkish getups, on legged deadlifts etc. Also I highly recommend pullups, you can usually find a bar at your local park to do them. Being that we sit a lot we generally have a weak back and pulling muscles.

    As for the amount of weight lost you are doing very good. I think 10 lbs a month is around average maybe a bit over average. I think it would really benefit you to make some non scale goals (NSV or non scale victories as they like to say in /r/loseit) see this post for ideas
    The scale is a really shitty way to measure body composition and health.

    Some longer term goals and maybe some performance goals I think would really help you out as well. 'Dieting to lose x amount of weight' is never successful. Tim states in the book many time it is a lifestyle change. You want to look good, and being healthy is the best way to accomplish that. My goal from the start was to lead a healthy lifestyle to set an example for my son and any future kids I have, I have been at it for 18 months now and will never go back. There have been set back, ups and downs along the way, but when your goal is long term and you are looking way down the road, having some cake at a birthday isn't that big of a deal.

    I also get a ton of help from my S/O and I highly suggest everyone get by in and help from the people around them. They don't have to be as passionate about it as you are but as long as they are board and have some sort of health related goals it makes a huge difference.

    Good Luck, feel free to contact me directly.

Best investment I can suggest is getting an instant-pot, I made some recipe posts a while back for some recipes I would make.

Making a whole chicken and bone broth is pretty easy and tasty way to get some meat for the week.

My MIL's Feijoada is also really easy way to get some really tasty black beans, I can't stand them straight from the can.

Tim has 4-hour chef which is interesting book, but it's not just cooking, for that I really like Williams-Sonoma Tools & Techniques

Edit: good video, I wouldn't mind seeing you make some more as you go for sure.

Edit2: forgot to mention, these are pretty good spice mixes with no sugar added

You will get some amazing results. I got this body meauring tape for my measurements (waist, chest, arms, thighs, etc). These are the metrics you will pay attention to.

Good luck my friend. I want to hear your progress.

u/Quebecoise · 4 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

I have avoided that particular curry because of the cream in it. Kitchens of India, however, does offer another curry that is slow carb friendly.

Kitchens of India Rajma Masala is one that I buy regularly and love! I've often added veggies in or more beans to flesh it out a bit.

Tasty Bites Jodpur Lentils is also one that I'm a fan of, as well as their Punjab Eggplant.

There are a couple other ones as well, but I can't remember them off hand. If you have a trader joes near you, their refried beans are a good option!

Breakfast and dinner can both be fairly simple meat/veggie/beans. If you're staying at a single campsite and have coolers to store your food, anyways. Beans can be come from cans or you can pack them dry and soak them the night before somewhere at your site and cooked in a pot over the fire. Carrots, zucchini, broccoli, and other veggies can be stored and kept fresh and are easy enough to grill. The carrots and zucchini can also be used in kebabs with sweet peppers and chicken or steak.

Lunch isn't as easy in my head. An insulated lunch bag with deli meat or cold, cooked chicken and snacking veggies like carrot sticks, cucumber, etc tossed with Tajin or something similar.

u/persp73 · 1 pointr/4hourbodyslowcarb

Kind of both. I have something like this:

put the egg whites, eggs, red pepper, and flax in a measuring cup, beat with fork, add chopped spinach, divide among cooker trays, cook 5 minutes.

u/sugemchuge · 3 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

This is the one i bought and I love it. It's fast, accurate and has an insanely high rating on amazon.

u/codefame · 2 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

I run an integrative medical clinic. (Not a doctor.) From what I've seen, sugar and inflammation are the root of probably 90% of the chronic diseases we deal with, and excess sugar triggers inflammatory it's all down to the sugar.

It's also the hardest addiction to deal with because unlike others, we're just now learning about how bad it can be for us.

We have a lot of success working with sugar addictions in our space because we pair our patients with functional nutritionists who know how to speak to the addiction cycle. If you're struggling, consider connecting with a knowledgeable functional nutritionist who can help.

If you want some good book recommendations in addition to 4HB:

u/RenRen512 · 2 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

You can always get one of these battery-operated things: Aerolatte at Amazon.

Quiet, portable, does the job pretty quick.

u/Azuroth · 2 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

Similar to these although not the same brand. Like I said, the ones I had said egg as their first ingredient.

u/mraichelson · 1 pointr/4hourbodyslowcarb

I tried the ones from NewHealth Solutions for a couple months (on Amazon here), but tapered off since I wasn't really seeing much of a result with them after a while.

u/Belovealways · 1 pointr/4hourbodyslowcarb

Be careful of added sugar and other ingredients you cant pronounce. Cheap Whey comes from the nastiest of nasty cows. I think purchasing a good, clean whey is well with the additional $. I use

u/oolunchbox · 7 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

Personally I use Now Foods brand for most all of my supplements.
I've been using their Policosanol, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Green Tea, and Super Odorless Garlic for 5+ years now.
Mind you, this is simply my opinion. I've not tried many other brands nor kept any records to compare results.

u/ac106 · 4 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

I don't have the time or inclination to eat the amount of food required to get 30 grams of protein at 5:30AM so I have protein shakes. 1.5 scoops of whey protein in 8oz of almond milk or more recently cold brew coffee with a liberal amount of Saigon cinnamon. It's quick, tasty and minimal calories to get 30g of protein.

u/WaffleStomping101 · 1 pointr/4hourbodyslowcarb

I use this tea before bed at the end of my cheat day. Also eating your normal breakfast in the morning first can help lead everything through you.

u/nathos · 2 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

It's pretty much a modified low-carb plan, focusing more on the glycemic index. I think Tim's "cheat day" helps in two ways: 1. keeping you on the plan long-term and 2. preventing your body's metabolic rate from getting too low (as if it were fasting).

As far as the science, I think Gary Taubes covers a lot of it really well in "Good Calories, Bad Calories".
