Default Anybody still doing CALP?

Hi.
Doesn't look like anyone has posted here in awhile. Is anyone active that still does CALP?
Did it years ago but got off track. I want to give it a go again.

Hi Molly,

Calp is still my preferred way of eating though I am not completely on plan at the moment. I would be glad to chat about it any time. Welcome!

Hello Patricia!
Thanks for replying.

I started CALP yesterday but failed miserably. My fault. I simply wasn't prepared. Today I am ON it! Food is ready & mindset is positive and motivated.

Let's do this!

One of the best things that has worked for me, is to do old fashioned menu planning for the week. Right down to any cm snacks, and potential meals out (where I find out the couple of restaurants we are choosing from, look at the menu for each online, and know 2-3 choices for each, that would work for that days rm.) It sounds like a pain, but if I know what I am doing (and in shaky times, I make sure that menu has cm and rm favorites), it just helps me ignore that whispering voice that can try to lead me astray

I so agree. I always check restaurant menus in advance. That way I am not tempted and already have my order in mind.

I am cooking for one so I don't do menus like I used to. But I need to do that for awhile at least to make sure I have everything on hand.

Today's food plan is:
BKF - cheese & spinach omelet and bacon
Morning snack: Hard boiled eggs and celery sticks (I don't eat lunch til 2 so I need a midmorning snack.)

LUNCH: chicken salad and raw veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, celery)

RM: Chicken Tenders, Salad, Brown Rice w/Quinoa, Spinach sautéed in Garlic Butter and maybe something sweet.

Patricia does that sound like I hit the guidelines

As long as your proportions of carb to protein and cm veggie are good at rm, this sounds solid and very good!

I am. Just finding it a little harder now to keep on track. I did it 20 years ago and it was a dream. Now I'm single and finding it harder to find the time to do the food prep. But I feel so much better on it, that I keep persevering.

I agree, it really can be a dream. I find whenever I think of how I feel best, I think of being on CALP. It really is a way of eating versus a "diet".
