We call ourselves "Hard Core" because we are a group of like-minded people with the same philosophy about losing weight.
We are following A '72 Induction until we reach our GOAL WEIGHT without CHEATING!
Some of us will remain at Induction level carbs even in maintenance because we are that carb sensitive!


HARD CORE A '72 Warrior "MAINTAINERS"

(made desire Goal weight or below):

Bernie2014 125 lbs (as of 07 December 2015)
DelaneyLC 143 lbs (as of 03 January 2016)
Just Jo 114 lbs as of 25 April 2016 (130 lbs as of 10 March 2014)


We will be Warrior members of TEAM 5%!

Induction Rules, Foods List, DR No No's & Other Notes

Biologically Zero Carbs
Diet Revolution 1972 pg 102
Quote:
"...Where you start the diet, of course, is with a daily intake of zero grams of carbohydrate. Although we allow salad on the diet from the start, and lettuce has carbohydrate in it, the amount it contains is so minute as to be biologically the equivalent of zero."
A Tablespoonful Of Potato Salad Can Slow You Down!

Dr. Atkins on "MAINTENANCE ~ Staying at Your Best"
Diet Revolution 1972 pg 261
Quote:
THE MAIN CHANGE THAT HAS TO BE MADE IS IN YOUR HEAD.

Success in maintaining your trim figure and your zest for living is guaranteed if you can achieve this radical change in your thinking.

If you have a chronic weight problem it is essential to totally accept, fully understand that your fat is one symptom of a lifetime disease. Your metabolizing processes are and always will be abnormal. Yes, even if you get slim and stay slim!

Many medical studies have shown that the biochemical responses of a formerly overweight person, such as the excessive insulin release when carbohydrates are eaten, are still quite different from a never-over weight person. In other words, you cannot eat what normal people eat and expect to stay thin.

So say to yourself over and over until you've got it through your rebellious head:

"My tendency to be overweight is one sign of a chronic metabolic disorder. My physiology doesn't handle certain kinds of foods as slim physiologies do. I mustn't try to compare my eating habits to those of a person who has never had a weight problem. Not now. Not ever."

"I have an illness, a lifelong illness. I can't cure it, but I can CONTROL it!"

Basic to controlling it is to understand that it is a permanent condition...about which you can do a great deal. Controlling it isn't all that difficult.
Dr. Atkins on "Amount of Carbs for Maintenance"
Diet Revolution 1972 pg 263
Quote:
The best decision is probably to stay pretty much on the very low carbohydrate diet on which you lost; only now you can feel free to deviate in small ways.
Dr. Atkins on "Maintenance"
Diet Revolution 1972 pg 286
Quote:

From the book:

Q. Once I get the weight off and am a normal person again, why can't I maintain this normal weight by merely eating normally?

A. Because you only look normal; inside your body is the same metabolic abnormality that made you overweight in the first place. This, by the way, is one of the key points of the whole book.

Just have to add this to our thread b/c it's so worth sharing, IMHO:

Words of Wisdom from Khrussva (Ken) yesterday, 09.07.17:

"If I make it OK to cheat every now and then, will I ever reach my goal weight and/or maintain the weight I have lost?"

Ken’s complete response to “What Happen’s if I Cheat?” thread

Wow, he is always so SPOT ON!

new thread here too! oh my LOL

Jo you preach that good old A72 info! everyone needs to see it, so glad you got it all on this new thread as usual....it is the best way to approach eating in life....others don't know it but I sure do! LOL

On that truck, no we are shopping, heck he has like 50 he would love to buy now! the sticker shock is hard on me, being frugal to part with like over 60K now just curls my toes to now end but he keeps reminding me 'ya can't take it with you' but I tell him I would like to hang onto it long as I CAN and if I croak before him he then can do whatever, til then I am holding on tight LOL but I guess I gotta let some bucks go at some point. frugal in me says no, but he has worked hard all thru the years so my softer side says ok...well maybe ok...well...haha

Bernie, you said it. We need a 'major truck', not a backyard haul truck people buy so yea we are looking at the big boys and the sticker goes high with doing just that but hey it is what it is. Glad you are doing well!!


HI ALL
doing some errands and taking dog and will walk a hiking track near one of my stops. Dog is thrilled, I say 'car dog' and he knows! In fact he is looking at me saying come on you slow human LOL will leave in just a bit

got nice pork chops for dinner tonight
hitting store, Tbones on sale for 6.99 lb so will get some for the freezer

all good here, closing pool in just a few days. COOLER here and it isnt right but if weather says cooler then I am flipping over to hiking now. got no choice

take care all and great day

okay back...
Happy Day, WARRIORS!

Hope all is well and wishing each of you a totally kick Azz, BAD Azz 100% OP day as usual!

Stay WARRIOR Strong!

Just finished talking to my bro in FL. He's got everything nailed down, put away etc... this isn't his first hurricane rodeo! He's lived in FL for 40 years.

He has enough provisions for 7-10 days, a generator, etc... They are starting to get impacted by the hurricane and won't experience the full affects until early tomorrow morning... right now they are under torrential rain with increasing wind and tornado threats...

He lives 35 miles south west of Daytona Beach...

Carb-Free Food for Thought:

Posting on this Hard-Core Warriors thread is great preventive medicine for us.

It is like taking aspirin before a headache!

~ By Larry H 12.01.15

Gosh, I miss Larry, I wish he'd come back on to let us know how he's doing!

Onward and DOWNWARD, WARRIORS! We've GOT THIS! Woot! Woot!

Hello warriors,

How is everyone doing today?

Prayers for all of Florida! My old boss lives by Tampa she did evacuate but some of our other friends are in Orlando and sheltered in place.
Jo.... Praying for your family as well that they are safe and that they will be okay in this devastating storm!

De.... praying for your dear friend also!

Karen.... have fun with the things to do list! I did more trails with Magnum today no swimming or chasing squirrels!

Have a spectacular Sunday and take care of yourself!

Prayers🙏🙏🙏🙏 for everyone in Irma's path!
