Stupid question:

Up to 4% carbs in the CM. No worries.


Treat yourself with a copy of CALP or CAD it is very
helpful or pick one up in the library - you wont regret it;

Morning💕
Iím planning a nice CM of chicken wings today I just love them!
I make them in my Ninja Grill and they come out perfect. I like everything crispy.

Not sure on my RM, might be a salad and cheeseburger w/fries I really eat the same things over and over. I donít like to cook so I keep it simple.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hey all-

Do you recall why you switched to CAD/CALP? Or is this the only plan you've tried? For me, it was feeling so down with low-carb/atkins. It was affecting my mood, thyroid was low, and sleep issues. Having some carbs everyday improved all of that and I was able to lose weight as well. But I had to give up snacking, I had to fast (truly fast), in order for it to work.
At least 18 hours of nothing solid to eat everyday.

Hi mojo!
Iím doing CAD because I just canít seem to stick with LC all the time. I become depressed and then I usually binge on junk. I canít make it thru the adaptation time frame of Atkins.

I like knowing that I can have what I want once a day and enjoy eating out with the family not worrying about every damn carb!

Seems like Iíve been on low carb forever and Iím still fat lol.
I also have to have a eating window to lose, I am starting to lose but it is slow for me. Iím not very active especially in the winter 🥶

My favorite window is 2-6pm but I donít always make that and end up with noon to 6 I just do my best for that day.

Hi Jeep

Thanks for your quick reply! Yes, I struggle with those same issues. I know this works, but losing and maintaining is tough.
I'm very not active as well during the winter months. Cutting off the evening snacks was a huge improvement for me. If I eat too late, I'm ravenously hungry! (and always crave the junk at night)

Morning girls💕
Man did I wake up early this morning, I just donít sleep good as Iíve gotten older☹️

Having my coffee and sitting in front of the fire itís really cold here, 16 this morning!

Carlie, howís things going? Check in and let us know how your doing with CAD hope your enjoying it.

Suze, how are your RM going? Did you figure out the CMís
Iím basically eating protein for CM as I donít care for veggies. I do make a easy veggie soup also.

Mojo, I try not to eat after 6pm I turn in early around 9 and will get a stomach ache if I do. Especially if itís junky food and thatís where CAD really helps. I know that Iíve already had my carbs during the one hour limit so at night I certainly donít want protein!

Happy, I know you have your fireplace going this morning and probably shoveling the snow. Such good exercise for ya, in this cold (16) I hate being out for long. I do go out a couple times a day to clear out the snow for my 2 little yorkies

Today I will probably only make it till my noon window. RM will be a salad because I still have some fresh lettuce, tomato and my homemade ranch. I want to try and make HM blue cheese if I can find a easy recipe. Iím also having salmon & shrimp cooked in some butter with a sweet potato.

Have a great day!

Hi girls! 💕
Hope you are doing well.

- Jeep! The ďsalmon & shrimp cooked in some butter with a sweet potatoĒ sounds awesome. Would love to try out your ranch dressing too .
Any recipe?

- Mo! I am working on a reply.


Hugs/
Happy

Hello all-

Sticking with the plan- no eating past dinner.
Trying to go to bed by midnight. (didn't make it last night)
Kids came over and we played Clue and Rumicube. We had a blast!
Drank my sprite zero - more than one.

I have a hard time with fresh veggies- they always go bad and become a science experiment gone wrong, and waste of money, so I don't do the salad thing...hope that doesn't kick me outta the group :

Scale was about the same today....hohum

Hope everyone is doing great!
Special shout out to Happy and Jeep

Hi Mo and everyone! We are so glad to have you here.


This was hard for me to write.
So I was over weight after having my DD in the year of 1999 that is when I saw the drs Hellers on a tv show. I identified 100%. My prayers had been answered.
Started immediately that day to follow the CALP plan and ordered the books and studied them.
Short story - in less that 1 year I had lost 40 lbs from 180 lbs.
2 years later I was down to 110 lbs (tot 70 lbs) .

I have tried veganism, vegetarian, eating the ďrightĒ supplements, the grapefruit diet, extreme LC, Atkins, Atkins 72, inductions, raw milk, raw egg, the fruitarian diets LOL Ö the rice diet, much like Racheal Heller, Overeaters Anonymous, juice fasting, water fasting, salt and water, IF, the Colombian diet Ö and so on. Read so many books that only made me more confused.

Too high carb, too LC, Atkins, keto, primal so much tasty food but Ö they stalled me completely and made me sick and depressed, even gained. Had the same thyroid, kidneys + water retention ... the lack of carbs almost killed me. True story. Under-carbed serotonin deprivation.

Over the years I kept my CM breakfast/lunches but started snacking in the afternoons/evenings again, still skipping meals when i wasnít hungry. I went through a separation, divorce, moved ... I stayed around 155- 150 lbs all of a sudden I was 210 lbs.
I had gained it all back and more.

1999 was my changing point.
The CMs I was still eating and the close to RMs and skipping breakfast/meals on I still had enen though I was off plan sustained me. Also kept the salads for dinner as often as I could - if I hadnít I would been worse off.
Eventually my kidneys healed and here we are at my reboot. I have learned so much and I am very grateful for my journey that I can eat foods from all of the diets I tried, but in a CALP maner.
I love keto, LC foods and I love carbs. This is the best way of two worlds.

This is WOE fixes the balance of a medical condition called carbo addiction - to not only normal but thriving.



Hugs
/Happy

Thanks Jeep! 💕No MSG added, wow!

Gotta be able to find some similar brand over here or seasoning.
I use dried onion and garlic a lot the get sour cream tastes.
Gonna try something, good to have the ratio there with the water and all.


Girls, hope you are doing all right all of you. 💕

Wow! Thank you so much Happy for sharing your story! I'm so sorry you went through that and I'm sure we can all relate to it.

The struggle is real, the addiction is real, and the depression is real. People who don't have this addiction, just don't understand what it is like.

My husband for instance, he doesn't have a weight problem. He could stand to lose a few and he doesn't always chose healthy, but he doesn't have an obesity problem like me. I have never (our entire married life- just over 33 years) weighed less than him. When I lose- he loses too. Makes sense since I plan the meals, shop for the meals, cook the meals, etc.

Jeep- LOL you crack me up!

TTYL sweet girls....

Good morning💕
Happy....wow you have been thru a lot very courageous of you to put that all out there. Iím really glad you have found your WOE because that is the hardest part.
Also, I checked for msg and the HVR does have some in it☹️ But I will still use it in my recipe because I donít want to use store bought dressings with soybean oil. I still get the blue cheese but hopefully Iíll find a easy recipe for that also. Enjoy your reward meal today!

Mojo....33 years wow good job girl! He is a lucky guy😉

Made it till 4 yesterday and that was a mistake! I was so hungry that I ate to much and yep had a stomach ache late last night. I wonít do that again! I think my 2-6pm window is much better.

Today is going to be CM at 2 then RM around 5

I really miss being able to mall walk in the winter, but mall was closed when COVID hit and now it doesnít open till 11 and by then Iím busy doing other things. I have to stop by the dog groomer and bring vaccination papers so maybe Iíll stop by and go in.

Iím mean I do want to pick up some Valentines Day chocolate and they used to have a good candy store in there. I havenít been in the mall in probably a year. Iíll have to wear a mask so I donít know how long Iíll walk but Iíll try.....I feel like I need to walk...canít wait for spring!

Enjoy the day girls!
