Today is starting simple - just coffee with 2 oz. half and half. I make sure there are at least 90 minutes between my coffee and any breakfast.

Plan for breakfast is a cm omelet and black coffee. This was actual.

Going to try for no lunch and a larger rm, but no specific plans yet for that rm.

RM was a very tiny amt of an appetizer (was about 4 French fries, a tablespoon max of gravy, 3 cheese curds and 2 tiny pieces of pulled pork), a drink (bourbon), my entrée was a bourbon glazed piece of salmon, sweet potato hash and broccolini. If I had skipped sharing a dessert, I'd be quite happy with this meal. On the way home, I got a simple cup of brewed coffee from starbucks with half and half. No lunch, no snacks today.

Planning how to handle the holidays. DH is doing a different plan than I, so it takes some conversation and planning to be sure we are both on track and happy.

Hi Patricia, I used to do CAD years ago and you can probably find some of my old posts here. Good for you for fighting the good fight!

I haven't read all the posts and am not sure how long you've been on plan recently. But are you finding CAD/CALP to be successful this second go-around?

Hi!

I am afraid this is more than my second time back. But it will be my second time losing all of the weight I have to lose. I've been off and on since mid 1990s, but finally got serious when I was at my heaviest, and over a 4 year period, lost 210 pounds.

Yes, this is working for me this time. I am a slow loser anyway, and last time found I did my best with a daily calorie limit as well (I simply ate too much protein with my rm etc., paying attention to calories helped me portion control), and eating an early dinner. I essentially was doing 12/12 - a 12 hour eating window and 12 hours fasting.

I will eventually get to a 16/8 pattern this time, as I believe there are benefits to doing so.

lunch will be: 2 cm chicken sausages and a cm veggie.

rm will be Chinese takeout - plan is for either a seafood medley, with rice, or a chicken and vegetables with rice, coffee with half and half.

You're doing good PatriciaKr. I don't practice CAD/CALP but normally I only eat carbs at dinner in small amounts. That helps keep my blood sugar in line. I think this plan is very beneficial and slow weight loss seems easier to maintain. Unfortunately, most people are in a hurry to lose.

So I just follow along for ideas.

Hope you still get some from here, I know I tend to eat a lot of the same things, again and again. Sometimes I have a new recipe to share.
