Good morning! Drinking coffee and going over my to do list for work today. Brought my lunch and we'll eat out tonight.

MIW, the lobster tail and prawns sound delicious!

3pups, Wheat Belly is a good book. I'm glad you like the flax cereal--I can't eat flax as it gives me digestive problems, but it's very healthy.

Looking forward to some future success with CAD!
Crawl back on........we have all been there....

The reason for the referrence to the book is because I have really missed hot cereals. In the book, there was a recipe for a hot flax cereal with pecans or walnuts and unsweetened coconut made with coconut or almond milk. It was delicious and EXTREMELY filling. I am very excited about getting hot cereal again. I also bought some salba (chia) seeds to see if DH would like them better than flax (he has a "texture" issue with flax) No such luck, though, he doesn't like the chia seed either. So, what to do with the chia seed......hmmmmmm........ I researched it and came up with a recipe for "faux" tapioca pudding! WOW! I'm in love! The flavor possibilities are endless. Aanyway I hope everyone is well and surviving the winter and flu season.

I like the chia seed. I have never been foolish enough to try and get DH to eat it. (except when I had soaked into a gel, and added to scrambled eggs. That worked)

Happy Day!!! Last night I worked another night shift...

But, even though I started my TOM, when I got on the scale it was deciding wether I was 219 or 220! I decided to go with the 220. When I got home I was 223 so it shows you what waiting and weighing yourself consistenly can do and after a good sleep! LOL

I expect this will be my low weight of the week but this will probably get my weekly average back on track

I would love to get some chia seeds. My Dad tried to get me on them years ago. They are good for hydration obviously, but I watched a nutrition documentary and chia is also good for cleaning out the system of built up bile salts which is a big help to the liver. If your liver is happy- you lose weight better since it aids in emulsifying fats from the blood stream.

Good morning!

Scale at 152.2 this morning. I sure would like to see it dip into 151 something, but slow and steady wins the race, right?

Horrible drive to work this morning--freezing rain and accidents everywhere. Really glad I made it to work without being in or causing a wreck.

Oriana, if cereal is what you want for your RM, then why not? I do feel like I get really hungry the next day if I don't have sufficient protein with my RM. The other day, for example, I had gluten free waffle sticks and a couple of sausage links. I was starving the next morning. So, maybe keep that in mind or just try it and see what you think.

RM last night was delicious--luau pork and brown rice with teriyaki sauce (takeout). And three chocolate truffles for desert.

I have cucumbers and string cheese for my breakfast when I get hungry.

WOE: One meal a day CAD style
Start Date: November 1, 2012
Here are my meals for the last couple of days:

Day 1:
CM- boiled egg, 2 pc bacon
CM snack- iced decaf american with cream and cinnamon
CM- large salad with ranch dsg, hamburger patty with slice pepperjack chz
RM- 2 large burritos (fried ground beef and pork drained of fat with taco seasonings), 2 medium sized flour tortilla shells, sour cream dollops, onions, shredded mozarella chz, lettuce, salasa, 1 sm glass of red wine, hershey bar with almonds and an almond joy

Day 2:
CM- string chz, homemade beef jerky strip (about the size of the palm of my hand), decaf iced americano with cream and cinnamon

CM- HUGE mixed green salad with blue cheese crumbles, ground beef crumbles, and ranch dsg

RM- spaghetti with double meat sauce, with regular wheat noodles, one pc of french bread with butter and garlic seasoning, 2 C mixed green salad with ranch, 2 pc of chocolate mousse pie

Day 3:
CM- 3 sausage links, 1 string chz, decaf iced americano with cream and cinnamon
CM- 1 medium sized bowl of pho with the meat, veggies, tripe, tendon (no noodles, gave those to the kids) iced decaf americano with cream
RM- tonight will be more leftovers of spahgetti like above and probably the exact same portions as last night too with the last of the chocolate mousse pie. If not 2 pc then maybe a hersheys and almond joy to go with

It's my TOM so I am definately craving sweet, salty, and savory in HUGE amounts! Good news is that my weights have been hovering right at 222 with a dip to 220 and 221 so I think my average for the week will be 222 which will put me back to where I was 2 weeks ago to lose that dang 0.6 lb from last week. I am going to have to look back but I am thinking it is my trend to go up about a 1/2 pound the week BEFORE my TOM which must be fluid retention due to hormonal shifts. I have noticed this my whole life which is why I am not letting it get me down.

Happy eating everyone!
MIW

Karen, we must be sharing the same brain cell because I am here to post my averages too! LOL Also, I updated my measurments and those are continuing to fall as well. Even though I had a blip where I went up... I am actaully on track and since week 10 have consistently lost and that is VERY encouraging since I feel I have been eating everything in sight this last week. THIS REALLY DOES WORK FOLKS! Stay on Plan and it will work!

Hi all!

Just wanted to let you know that I am switching over to an intermittent fasting plan. I need a few more choices than on CAD, so I am bringing back nuts, greek yogurt, and fruit as options during breakfast and lunch and eating in an 8 hour window, from 10:30-6:30 each day. I will continue the Reward Meal idea by enjoying a plate of anything I want for dinner, plus desert, within an hour.

I will continue to peek in from time to time and wish you all much success!

Rachel

Good luck with IF. I tried it, but got to where I got shakey before my eating window opened up.

I've been doing IF with CAD for the last couple of weeks, so I've got the window part down! I just have to keep the 8 hour window as an option...5 hour window is not enough for me.

Yes, good luck Racheal. Seems like you just came on board with us. Sorry you didn't stick with CAD longer but I do wish you all the best. A good friend of mine is on the 5 hour window thing and lost 11 lbs the first week so maybe it will work out well for you too!

Goals for this next week:

To drink more tea and water. That was something I did a lot more of back in November and I am going to work on more. Think it might help me to lose more weight as well

Eat more leftovers and out of the pantry. This isn't so much for the waistline as the pocket book. We have a large stocked pantry but it is so easy to eat the same stuff over and over and go shopping. We love to cook and are not picky eaters (the adults anyways) so I just need to work a bit more on being creative.

Anyone got plans for Super Bowl Sunday? I have to work and we are planning a pot luck. I am bringing Super Nachos and will have ground beef, beans, a crock pot with melty nacho cheese (the big can from Cash & Carry), sour cream, diced onions, black olives, and probably salsa. The rest is bringing wings and sweets. I am going to make midday my RM instead of dinner that night since I don't get home until late anyways.

I did a 7 hr window, and it worked for about a month. Then I started getting weak/fuzzy before my 7 hours was up. Then switched back to CAD with a snack........ That has been working since Sept..

WOE: One meal a day CAD style
Start Date: November 1, 2012
THought I'd cross-post this from a reply I did on another forum since it might be of benefit to share this with you folks:

Today for breakfast and for a change from my usual eggs and bacon, I
made lettuce wraps with lots of fresh veggies from the fridge. I got the
idea from this recipe from the Heller's CAD cook book.

We buy in bulk to save money and to have lots of produce and food
availble to stay on track easier. Also, I tend to cook in big batches as
well to have food on hand to eat off of for the next couple 2-3 days in
advance. I try to cook things that I can use for BOTH CM's and RM's.

Cash & Carry is a bulk store that you don't need a membership to like
Costco or Sam's. Some of their prices are even better than Costco, most
might be a buck or two higher so it is still a better savings compared
to a regular grocery store. They sell to restaurants and coffee places
so they have tons of neat stuff to buy- even produce!

We buy cases of cabbage, HUGE bags of cilantro, parsely, Kale, green
onions, radishes, brocoli, celery, serrano peppers. All for usually $3
roughly a bag. The cabbage was like 82 cents a pound and keeps for
MONTHS in a cool garage and can be used at any CM and is very filling.
You can get good deals on bricks of cream cheese, sliced cheeses, bricks
of cheese, whole cuts of beef and pork, etc for discount prices. Even
dried goods and pantry items that are more suitable for RM's.

(Did you know cabbage was the key to the ancient Roman's success?
Cabbage was a mainstay since it kept so well and could be supplied to
the front line troops).

Anyways, point is we eat a lot of veggies around here, at almost every
meal. I also cook up meat ahead and try to think of multiple uses. I've
got 2 rabbits in the crock pot to slow cook all day to use for stir fry,
enchiladas, salads. We raise our own and use it in any dish you'd use
chicken. Rabbit is the highest in protein, least in calories, fat,
cholesterol compared to: beef, pork, goat, sheep, chicken. It is very
dense and dry compared to other meats, and less amounts actually fill
you up more than larger portions of beef due to the denseness of the
meat. We bake up roasts to use as a main in one meal, meat for CM's,
and diced up in stews or stir fry. We also make lots of variations on
curry dishes that are always tasty and green curry goes well with
chicken, rabbit, seafood, Red curry is great with beef, and so is Brown
curry. We buy our curry in bulk from asian stores at discounted prices.

I make up big batches of spaghetti sauces to use for spaghetti,
spaghetti pie, even lasagnas. You can have several meals that are
different if you use your imagination and change around the veggies,
carbs that go with it.

The breakfast CM wrap:

2 large lettuce leaves (Romaine or red curled work well)

Slice or two of CM acceptable turkey or favorite lunch meat, baked
turkey, etc

2-3 TBSP of cream cheese

ANY other veggies you like! I diced up celery, green onions, and placed
in each wrap a few sprigs of parsley and cilantro. Then roll the entire
thing up like a burrito and enjoy! Very crunchy, satisfying, fresh I
had 2 and am still full almost an hour later. These work great at any
CM- even breakfast. Only your imagination can limit you.

Another favorite breakfast CM of mine and Hubbys: fried cabbage with
bacon. You can also scramble in an egg and it is awesome. I have this
for ANY meal and feel full and satisfied. Something about cabbage that
is very filling.

Cilantro and parsley are great for detoxing heaving metals from the
body. All veggies have some benefit: vitamins, minerals, trace
elements (we even need certain forms of arsenic!), fiber. Even iceburg
lettuce is an excellent source of Vit K which is very beneficial.

Don't get me wrong, I love my junk like fresh donuts from the bakery,
KitKats, Snickers, ice cream, beer, wine, etc but I do try to balance
that stuff with plenty of nutritious and natural foods as well

WOE: CAD
Start Date: January 2013
Mind if I join you? I am doing the original CAD after giving generic low carb a try for a month and not losing weight until I had a cheat day.. then I dropped 2 pounds. I have done CAD in the past and lost a significant amount of weight but it is all back now after 5 pregnancies. I am weighing in at 215.2 today and hope to be in the 100's by April. I am using Leslie Sansone's walking program for exercise and did 3 miles last night.
I haven't had a chance to eat today yet so no menu, I will add later. I tend to be a night eater anyway and always save a CM meal for after dinner and later in the evening. This is just the most realistic program for me.

Welcome Leslie! We wish you good luck and here's to eating well and still losing! I am inching towards my goal but my plan is to never starve myself, and as long as I maintain or lose I am happy. I am never getting back on the diet merry go round by restricting calories, food groups, or meals because the second you change from that- bam! The weight comes back I've dieted myself from a slightly chubby teen to upwards of 250lbs during my pregnancies. I'd give anything to be that 140-150lb girl again and I'd be HOT! LOL

The reason for the referrence to the book is because I have really missed hot cereals. In the book, there was a recipe for a hot flax cereal with pecans or walnuts and unsweetened coconut made with coconut or almond milk. It was delicious and EXTREMELY filling. I am very excited about getting hot cereal again. I also bought some salba (chia) seeds to see if DH would like them better than flax (he has a "texture" issue with flax) No such luck, though, he doesn't like the chia seed either. So, what to do with the chia seed......hmmmmmm........ I researched it and came up with a recipe for "faux" tapioca pudding! WOW! I'm in love! The flavor possibilities are endless. Aanyway I hope everyone is well and surviving the winter and flu season.
Can you post the recipe for the hot cereal or is it posted somewhere I can find it? It sounds very interesting and I would love to try it! Thanks..
