It's strange, because at my RM I am eating a lot more carbs than I did on Atkins but not getting the sugar rush even if I eat a dessert at my RM. Anyway, I'm taking that as a positive sign that I'm doing this right and that my body is responding to it.


I can't call it a sugar rush, but similarly, anytime there's a wee tad more carbs in say, a salad, about an hour later I'm a little spaced and unfortunately, HUNGRY.

Doesn't sound like a good sign.

But glad to know I'm not the only one.

When I loaned my CALP book to a friend and never got it back, DH ordered me another one. He ordered the wrong book and I ended up with CAD. As soon as I discovered it was the wrong book, he ordered me the correct one. I never opened CAD until recently because I was curious to know the difference between the two. I prefer CALP because it is straight forward and easy to comprehend.

I know you can be successful on this program but feel rather strongly you should pick up one of the books. If you do not want to invest in your own copy, borrow one at your local library.

This is my second time on CALP and the second time I purchased my own copy. It is an invaluable resource and one that you will refer to many times.

This is a great thread for someone that has read the books but, IMO, it does not contain enough information for those that are beginning the program.


I agree with your points. It took me a really long time to get through this thread, and I was actually more confused AFTER plowing through it than I was previously.

I wish a NEW thread was started, and that whoever is the moderator would make it a STICKY thread.

I'm sure this diet would be much more popular if there was a STICKY thread with the basic framework, and the actual rules, few though they be.

Also, total newbies would have NO idea what is the difference between CAD and CALP; also, it would be nice to have a total list of all the books the Hellers wrote.

JMO.

Default CM Question

I have a question. I'm a newbie, 2nd day. Today was a strange eating day. I didn't eat a breakfast CM. I had nothing. I had a CM at lunch time, veggies & protein, then an RM for dinner, 2 cups salad, 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 protein, veggies and carb=baked potato. Couldn't finish it. We had to eat early to make a comedy show. I was told that if I was hungry at night when we got home I could eat a CM. I know it should have been veggies and protein but I ate a cold pork chop and didn't have the room for more veggies. Can doing something like this cause a stall. I did have 2 servings of veggies plus a salad. I tried reading as many threads as I can but couldn't find the answer. Wanted to know if this ever came up again if I ate the protein without veggies once in awhile, is this what will cause a stall or weight gain?

Thanks.

Lisa

hi Lisa-
I think you are fine. You can't have a stall now- you have just started!! This is a slow but steady plan- just give it time. You are doing great-

about having this as a sticky (have you seen the CHEAT SHEET- it is worth printing out)- please feel free to ask one of the moderators. When I did years ago, they told me they wanted people to read the books and not use a sticky as the plan guide. I agree we could use some help here!

I read through most of this thread. It made me think about the difference between people who do Atkins or other similar diets and thrive and the people who do Atkins and spiral out of control after a few weeks. Maybe the people who thrive on the full Atkins program (not just Induction) are the people who didn't binge on carbs even before they started low-carb eating. Maybe those people aren't really carb addicts.

So, I was reminded of Chapter 4 in the Atkins book. He talks about the 3 types of people who need to control carbs. Group A is the group with a metabolic issue- they are able to control the amount of food they eat (no binging); Group B is the carb addiction group- they are the people who binge and eat and eat and eat; Group C is the group with food allergies.

Guess what group I fall into? Group B. Perhaps CAD is for that group? What do you think?
