From posts---

These things are: coffee <15 minutes; eating not to lapse more that 20 minutes;

t's just one of my own suggestions. There are few carbs in lettuce and more nutrition in other raw veggies that can go into the two cup measure.

The reward meal starts with a two cup salad at the minimum. Of course, if you really, really love salad, it can be more than two cups. During the other meals, there is no need to count lettuce...you can use it ad lib.

Still looking for my book.
I have always used the 60 minute rule since reading the book.

Recently, after weeks of Atkins, thru in a high carb dessert for dinner. Didnt throw me off. I remembered CAD and thought hmmmm maybe it is the CAD effect.

Adding in another piece of pie the following day at dinner did cause a problem.

Im trying to find a middle ground. Maybe there isnt one. sigh.

Atkins allows for some veg at everymeal; CAD allows for a big carb hit at dinner only.

Need to find book and confirm number of carbs for CM.

Off to search for my book again.

Z posted these.

CAD/CALP is not Atkins with a RM!! There is a very delicate chemical balance on CAD/CALP to keep your insulin under control, the RM working and you losing weight.

Any one of these can cause you to stall, crave and/or gain weight.

1. Eating more than 4 times a day.
2. Drinking coffee with cream and/or AS more than once a day outside your RM or taking more than 15 minutes to drink that once a day coffee with cream and/or AS.
3. Eating too much cheese at CMs--more than 2 ounces.
4. Artificial sugar during the day or at CM.
5. Diet Soda during the day outside your RM.
6. LC recipes or lc products during CM.
7. Exceeding 4 carbs per CM exclusive of listed foods.
8. Too much fat at CMs.
9. Hidden carbs/sugars, fillers.
10. Using net carb theory.
11. Atkins allowed vegetables that aren't on the CM list.
12. Vegetables that aren't on the CM list.
13. Trigger foods at CM--MSG, broccoli, green/red peppers, cottage cheese, onions, AS, pork rinds.
14. Allergen/sensitive foods at CM/RM-- sugar, wheat, dairy, cheese, eggs.
15. Not enough protein. Try for at least 12 ounces.
16. Flavored waters.
17. Salad dressings with more than 2 carbs per serving.
18. Nuts, bars, shakes, mock danish, pork rinds.
19. Unbalanced, wildly unbalanced, or carb binging RMs.
20. Gum and breath mints.
21. SF Metamucil or fiber outside CM/RM.
22. Exceeding the 60 minute RM rule by even a few minutes.

For some, all of these will cause problems. For some, some of them will. It's a very individual thing. For the first three weeks of CAD/CALP, I suggest avoiding them all.

Hey CADers, did I forget anything?
