I have this same issue. I do enjoy the feeling I get when I eat the big breakfast and see the scale the next day, though! This week I've done mostly breakfast RM, but today, I saved up and had steak and twice-baked potatoes for dinner. Heaven! I know I'll see a significant bump up on the scale tomorrow, but I'm going back to the breakfast RM tomorrow, so I'll let you guys know how much it derails me, ha ha!

Kaleesy, I used to be a one hour only person too but since I have moved to the BBD I don't need to. I can eat up to 9 a.m. and still feel done and stuffed all day. There is another breakfast only diet proponent and his last name is Marion and the book is called Eat and Be Happy. He says to only eat breakfast and as much as you want. He even says save that pizza for dinner and eat the whole thing and quart of ice cream for breakfast if you want.

Its not an actual gain..its food in your intestines, if this diet works, then time of day should not matter. The scale should still move down as you go no matter what time you eat

Back on track today, and down 1 of the 6 pounds I gained... That is my starting point. I WILL NOT get on the scale again for a while... I am going to focus on how I feel and curing my addiction...

Worked the overnight shift and had some beef jerky and diet drink on my drive home this morning. That pretty much counts as my CM breakfast.
Yummy CM lunch - brussel sprouts, ground beef, mushrooms, and cheese!!!
Not sure what is for dinner tonight...

I already feel much better just committing to this ONE DAY of following the plan. One day at a time!! One meal at a time!! I will cure my addiction!! And the weight-loss will follow.

I'm feeling motivated and happy. I'm also feeling committed - meaning even when I'm unmotivated I need to tell myself I just "eat this way" as my way of life.

I'm happy for all the big breakfast eaters... I will not even try this because I know myself. I need to cure my addiction more before I try experimenting with moving my RM around. Dinner RM works best for me - that's just the way it is...

Now I'm craving breakfast food - so I might just have breakfast for dinner as my RM tonight!!

Have a great day!

Oriana, good to know I don't have to stick to 1 hour for BBD. I just have a hard time doing that since I tend to like to take my time eating. Sometime I'll cook something, eat, cook, eat, wash dishes, eat. Haha. Thanks for the book idea -- I'll have to check out Eat and Be Happy at some point. I love the title!!

MIW, yeah I agree that it takes time to try out a WOE to truly see if it's working or not. 2-3 months can really tell where your weight is heading if you follow the plan properly. You provided a good example with your weekly numbers. Today is my 20th day on BB.

Anyway, can't wait to read SEC and BBD!

At first when I read BBD I was a little disappointed when it said 600 calories for breakfast. I thought "I can eat that in just one bowl of cereal". THEN I read into more detail and it says that you can and some have eaten up to 3000 calories just for breakfast. Then of course the part about the free day made my heart sing.

Day 2 - I woke up feeling lighter and a little hungry. I really wanted to get on the scale, but I stopped myself because I thought - I'm feeling great and will continue with CAD today. If the scale has a disappointing number, I might throw out my CAD plan out of depression. So after thinking it through I decided NOT to get on the scale. I'm just going to trust that the program is working.

Day 2 is a little tougher - I'm feeling hungry already 3 hours after breakfast. I had plenty of protein, but no veggies. I better load up on veggies for lunch.

Have a great day!

Hey 3 hours between meals is plenty! You can eat up to 4 times a day on CAD/CALP. I agree- load up on the veggies! I even will put cabbage in my fruit and yogurt smoothies! LOL It tastes great.

Lets say over a classic 16 waking cycle you should be able to get through with eating 4 times a day. UP up up everything: protein/fat, veggies, AND RM. I am telling you this it NOT LOW CALORIE. Get that out of your head and you will succeed. You do not need to be starving and doing calorie deprivation for this to work. Eat more not less.

I know it is counter-intuitive and you have to forget all the diet programming of low calorie starvatin suffering diets. This is for life. You will lose weight I promise!!! It works by reducing insulin and not storing fat. You will slowly burn. You will not lose by wasting your skeletal muscles and actually getting fatter and fatter. You should see my "guns" LOL. My biceps are HUGE and I haven't worked out seriously in years. I am building muscle and shedding the fat in and around them. I am now 211. I remember reading your posts in the archives and seen you come and go again at least once since I started when I was 235. I stuck with it even with the super slow loss and I have actually increased how much I am eating and I am still losing!

I have to say the scale just lies to me all the time lol. I am not showing loss on the scale but my mother in law said to me..my goodness girl your getting skinny. My husband told me this morning he can feel my ribs, and some jeans I bought a couple weeks ago need a belt...I should toss that scale, but I cant, I am a slave to it lol..oh and the real miracle, I am just not hungry. I woke this morning and skipped breakfast, I didnt need it, I did my grocery shopping and came home and had lunch, that never would have happened on low cal

That is because of the muscle you are gaining back. I know I wasted a lot of muscle over the years of low calorie diets but have worked hard with lots of weight training the last 7 years or so even at my weight and muscle does have memory so even if you don't work out for a LONG time like me it almost immediately comes back, even as you age. I read an article that said women in their 30's and 40's who worked out when younger can build more muscle faster than women just starting out in their 20's due to the muscle fiber memory so there is something to getting older that isn't all bad news! LOL

Weekly avg wt is up a bit due to TOM. When I get a chance I will post the weights. Having a friend from Canada come to stay and busy with work and getting the house ready so won't be posting as much. Hope everyone does well and eats well!

Snowy and cold today. SKipped BF and soup with crackers for lunch.

Really hungry tonight, so had round steak and an apple enchilada.

See what tomorrow brings. I am exhausted tonight, and no real reason to be this tired................
Going to bed early, I guess.

Hi, everyone. . I'm so glad to have this place to visit. sure has helped me.. I have learned a few more things about my self, I did cut down my big meal and started having the low carb meal at other times. . that is working well for me.. I've lost another lb, so a total of 7 now. . I want to mention that a couple of weeks ago it kind of hit me, hey.. one reason I gained weight in the past was that I never ate sweets or carbs so much with my meals.,. I mean dessert was nearly always away from meals. .well, yesterday dr oz had a woman on with a new book, (yes another new diet on dr oz) haha . anyway, her book promotes that carbs can be eaten with protein in order to reduce the spike in blood sugar.. well imagine that.. yes, the first thing I thought of was CAD. . so it sure makes a lot of sense, people don't have a clue that eating high carb away from the right amount of protein WILL most likely cause weight gain. If I have not learned anything else, I have learned this.,,for which I am so thankful. I still am dealing with some health problems, but, having this way to eat sure makes everything a lot better for me.. wishing you all a successful and happy day.

This is great, and very true. How many of us are too full after a meal and save dessert for later? I never allowed myself dessert, to calorie laden and I felt deprived alot. I need to cut back on them now since I ave someting every day lol

Good morning,
I am going to do the 1 RM meal a day for several wks. We are going to be traveling off an on and then there is Thanksgiving. If we are home the RM meal is going to be a big breakfast with fruit and choc. The rest of the time I will probably eat it for dinner. I am going to do only two meals a day unless I am starving for something. The main thing is to cut out all grazing, right, MIW? This is kind of like CAD, I think.

Sounds like a plan to me. Grazing is what gets me off-track. That and SF drinks.....

Good luck,

Hi...I'm Kevin and I'm new here. Hope I'm posting this thread correctly! After many years of experimenting with so many different diets I've decided enough is enough and I know that CAD is what works best for me! Years ago I attended a lecture by Dr Atkins and I'll never forget how he praised CAD by name and told us how he recommended people lose the weight quickly on his diet but then switch to CAD in order to maintain it. He said this was because CAD not only works (although he thought it was 75 minutes for some reason) but that too many people had a hard time staying on Atkins. Anyway I really admired his honesty and thought him and his wife Veronica were lovely people and I was sad to hear about his passing shortly after having had the pleasure of meeting him. He told us that he mentioned the Heller diet by name in his final book. How many diet guru's do that?! I am currently 219 lbs and my goal is to lose 50 lbs through CAD and the treadmill...I've lost 40 lbs in the past with CAD so I KNOW that it works!

I'm still chugging along! So far I've been losing .5 pound a week, according to the weekly average. Sooooo slow. I have to keep telling myself that slow is the best! I haven't seen that beautiful 127 number since I had those whiskeys on Halloween, so I've pretty much sworn off drinking until I lose it all. I'm now doing breakfast RMs every day, although on weekends it kinda turns into a brunch. As soon as I hit goal weight though, RM is going back to evening meal! It is really helpful and inspiring to see numbers and see everyone's gradual loss!

It is really helpful and inspiring to see numbers and see everyone's gradual loss!
Your so close to goal , you can't expect large losses..I think your doing great

I'm taking a little break from BB diet and having cm/cm/rm for a week or two just to shake things up a bit. That's the plan right now.

Morning, everyone. . I wanted to mention a couple of things that really help me to keep going.. first.. for every lb I lose it is like losing 4 sticks of butter.. also, we know that fat takes up so much more space than lean does.. so don't forget , the scale may not reflect our actual body composition, and I'm glad to be losing 4 sticks of butter at a time.. so far..28 sticks are gone.. yaaay.
When I think about it like that, it makes so much more sense to me. . also, I never realized that having sweets and carbs outside of my meals would trigger insulin response. . so just correcting that has to be huge in losing weight over the long haul. . hope you all have a great day..

hi everybody!i have been wanting to try CAD again,but last time I tried,i think I was having trouble staying on it because I have a lot of panic attacks and the worst anxiety.seems the low carb made the anxiety feel worse,like my blood sugar was too low or something.i craved carbs really bad.anyone find that this way of eating helped the adrenaline surges of anxiety and felt better after you stuck with it?
