Hi all. I am still here, mainly doing one meal a day still. Sorry I don't post much. I have been on some more active threads on lowcarbfriends recently but I do try to check back on the other ones from time to time. Hope all are doing well in the new year!

My current weight is bouncing from 212-214 range but TOM is coming up so hoping to see a bit lower once it passes.

No, I actually went in a different direction from once a day eating about a month ago. For the last year even though I enjoyed eating like that I stopped losing weight and was in a plateau. I guess I can't complain since I was eating a ton of food but I wasn't losing so I switched it up. I am not even following low carb or CAD anymore.

It can work however as there are many people who do it but I have realized that the people who have success with CAD and IF is because of calorie restriction- not that it changes the way your body stores fat. Maybe in the beginning but I have seen many others over the last year and a half with various forms of CAD/CALP or IF and analyzing their eating habits it is because of cutting out calories. I am interested in high calorie weight loss and not slowing the metabolism but speeding it up!

Good luck! I will say that I wasn't hungry eating that way and there are many positives. Just keep track of your eating to see what works and what doesn't!

I don't agree that my weight loss this past year, and ending the plateau I was on is simply due to lower calories. A calorie is not a calorie! It very much matters what I'm eating each meal. I find calp principles to be the way to eat, and will happily do so the rest of my life.
I expect maintenance on calp to go fairly smoothly.

Best wishes with what you've chosen to move on to.

Patricia nice to see you are still following me and my experiences. You are one of many who have been doing this long term who do keep close track and cut calories! I have been on every CAD and CALP board (except facebook) that I could find on the internet for 18 months straight and followed many people doing it longer than me. Many I don't even know their names but you'd remember Teri. Even Teri got very detailed in her caloric intake logs and I know another gal who is now at 108 pounds (starting from 130) and she is doing CALP by calorie restriction.

If you don't believe me then do higher calorie version of what you are doing as see if you notice the same progress. I am not saying this other than to be truly scientific about it and if you don't think it has to do with your calories then prove me wrong and up your calories and see what happens.

That is all I am pointing out. I do think the balance and linking of protein with carbs works- but only to a degree. It does work great for hunger control and cutting out empty calories. I found that out myself here as for a time I was able to up my calories to the 3000-4000 range and even with IF it worked but only for short term like 6 weeks. It is not sustainable in terms of being able to lose weight UNLESS calories are cut.

So, I have decided two meals a day within an eight hour period is working for me. My hunger pangs have quieted down. Interesting that the same day I decided this there was an article on Medscape that shows that eating a large breakfast and lunch only is better for diabetics then the six meal snacks a day. I'm not diabetic but this WOE seems to be my "nitch". I am trying to stay at 700 cal in am and 500 to 700 in pm. I don't get hungry in the evenings and feel now if I ate it would be out of habit. The first couple of days were tough, I have to admit. Not having a family to feed helps, too.

I only eat once a day in the late afternoon since 5 July 2013. It's worked like a charm for me since I have portion control issues and I love to feel "full" when I finish a meal.

I am doing A '72 with a twist since I also do lower kcals (calories). I am in maintenance at 800-1200 kcals and 6-12 carbs a day.
