WOE: Low Carb-My way
Start Date: January 2013
Today I feel like someone beat me with a baseball bat. Boot camp was really rough this morning. Yesterday's DD turned out to be more like 800 calories. I was just SO hungry all day. I'm not sure 500 cals is enough when I'm doing boot camp every day.

I'm going to have a Greek yogurt soon and see if I can perk myself up. So freakin' tired this morning!

Have a good day everyone!

I know how you feel Lori, those workouts are hard on limited calories!

5/12 - 191.8
5/13 - 192.8
5/14 - 191.0
5/15 - 189.4 - Cardio Party

Well that was short lived. Yesterday was a good low carb day though!! I had a great workout too, but ate a good bit of salty stuff like some salami, a pickle and some salty peanuts!

Good job MIW!!! You've got a nice downward trend happening there!!!


5/12 - 191.8
5/13 - 192.8
5/14 - 191.0
5/15 - 189.4 - Cardio Party
5/16 - 191.0 - Cardio Bootcamp
5/17 - 189.4

Back down a bit... Had a good day yesterday and so far so good today. Considering trying to make today a dd if we don't decide to go out to eat or anything... I don't have any workouts planned for today, so we'll see... Hopefully I'm starting to get back into ketosis and the weight will drop a little more.

Yes if you look you will see I have the same low weights off and on for over a month but it definately is a downward trend which I use to show people how if you are just weighing in once or twice a week you just won't see the loss as well if doing slower and steadier type diets like CAD or IF. It really does work, just slow so always keep that in mind and don't let day to day or even week to week here and there get you down! Follow WEEKS to WEEKS of averages and you will see the loses!!!!!

For fun, here is another of my daily tabulations of my RM. Today was another RM only day that I started at 10:45am and was done by 11:45am.

2 large flour tortillas 380 cal
1/2 C mozarella chz 180 cal
1 C shredded baked chicken 125 cal
1/3 C salsa 30 cal
1/3 C sour cream 180 cal
6 C salad 100 cal
3 TBSP creamy balsamic dsg 135 cal
16oz iced caramel mocha 2% 330 cal
10 oreo cookies 400 cal

Total calories: 1860 cal

I don't count frequently and only do random checks to be sure I am getting ENOUGH calories, not to see if I am staying beneath a certain amount. Sounds weird but I am actually worried about going too low and reaching starvation mode... I figure as long as I can eat this much and continue to lose I will do so

This week is my lowest weekly avg in 7 months!!! Just wanted to share You can see how there are ups and downs and it is slow but this is the point how you just have to stick with this WOE and not give up and track track track as that is the only way you will see the downward trends.

I have trouble actaully getting over 2000 calories, especially if I am only doing one meal a day. I am trying to move my RM earlier in the day based off a lot of people having excellent results with doing it earlier. Makes it a bit harder if it turns out to be an RM only day for me because I usually do not get hungry again until about an hour or 2 before bed and by then I am not ready to break my fast just to appease my hunger. Today I did RM at 10:04-11:04am and will be busy all day but will probably get hungry again right at bedtime and will just drink some water and sleep it off. Funny how when I wake up the next day I am not hungry at all.

Todays RM:

1 1/2 toasted tuna fish sandwiches on whole wheat: 800 cal

20 oz homemade caramel mocha ice latte with 2%: 400 cal

Large smoothie of strawberry, banana, grapes,
mandarin oranges, watermelon, apple: 390 cal

1 fried egg: 80 cal

1 pc bacon: 50 cal

4 oreo cookies: 160 cal

1 C mixed greens: siberian miner's lettuce, c
ilantro, parsley: 10 cal

Total Calories: 1890 calories

Today's RM eaten 9:20-10:20am:

2 large fried pork chops with salt and pepper and olive oil (no breading)
6 C salad with approx. 4 TBSP regular Hidden Valley Ranch Dsg.
20oz iced decaf vanilla-caramel sauce latte with 1 C whole milk
1/2 C vanilla ice cream
1/4 can root beer (to make a small root beer float)
2 large brownies

This will most likely be another RM only day but Hubby is getting back on CAD with me and is baking a chicken for later so I may have a CM later within 8 hours and have more salad as well. We'll see. I am noticing each day how I feel so full all day long even eating so early. I have also found the key to doing RM only is to get really full as well.

Today I am 214.8 lbs which is my lowest wt since Nov 1st! (I was 214.6 lbs the other day but this is still within the margin of error, LOL).

OMG people this really works! Today I am 213 lbs! I can now say that switching RM to breakfast really does work. I am losing faster and more consistantly the last 2 weeks since I switched RM to breakfast.

The key: be sure to get at least 7 oz of protein (that is quite a bit) otherwise you will be hungry later and maybe even shakey. That happened to me and was why I didn't like it at first. Also, I am sure to really get stuffed. I know sounds like being bingey but it is not. I also strive for balance but if I can't, I do eat another CM later with protein/veggies to be sure I got my veggies in for the day. I have not been hungry almost all day long now. I usually do get some hunger but it is right before going to bed and is totally manageable. I still have tons of energy. I do not eat right when I get up but I am striving to have my RM anywhere from 9-12 and most days now (more common than not) I have not been hungry at all and am doing RM only. I still do random audits and I am getting plenty of calories so I know it is not because I am cutting back.

Just want to share my experience to let others know more about the latest Heller's book The Stress Eating Cure and that doing RM for breakfast is doable and some might find it works better for them than dinner. Find what works for you!

Here are some example weights from the last couple of months and you can see the last 2 weeks have been losing much faster- even day to day. The results speak for themselves!

Week 22- 219.5 219.5 220 220 219.5 218.5 218.5 (219.36) +1.22

Week 23- 216 215.5 217 217.5 216.5 215 215 (216.07) -3.29
***(This week is when I went from 2 CM's and RM over 10-14 hour period down to 1 CM and an RM or RM only some days over the course of 4-8 hours of eating)

Week 24- 215.5 X X 217 215.8 216.8 217.4 (216.5) +0.43

Week 25- 215.5 217 216 217 217.6 217.8 215.8 (216.67) +0.17

Week 26- 218.2 X 219 217.8 219.2 218.2 X (218.5) +1.81
***(TOM and eating more over 10 hours again. Also somewhere in this timeframe I got a new scale that had me a good 1-2 pounds HEAVIER than my original scale so that could be why I was up here as well...)

Week 27- 217 216.6 216 216.6 217 217.8 219 (217.14) -1.36

Week 28- 217.6 217 216.6 216.6 217 217.6 217 (217.06) -0.08

Week 29- 216.2 216.8 214.6 215.8 215.8 216.2 216.2 (215.9) -1.12

Week 30- 215.4 214.8 213
***(Starting during week 28 consistent with eating RM earlier and most days are RM only except when at work then I do CM lunch and RM dinner)

(BTW I am doing a combo of CAD/CALP, IF, and SEC/BB)

I am still going strong. Most days I would say I am an extreme intermittent faster as I only eat for an hour and fast the other 23 hours. I do not force myself to do this, it just happened naturally when I found a way to control my cravings and insulin resistance issues!

Hey, I'm still here, was just struggling with motivational issues and way more going on than I have time for..... Anyways I feel motivated again and really wanting to get myself down into those 170's!!! I've completed 3 days of controlling my carbs and staying within my window!

Today I weighed 190.0, so I haven't gained.

Yes just hang in there. We all have issues and I have been off plan myself in the last week for one day to switch me back over to a longer fast in the morning and eating my bigger meals in the evening. Was enjoyable to say the least! LOL

Don't sweat the day to day stuff. You can see I am consistently losing, even though it is at a snails pace I am eating like a Queen and loving it!

One RM today for me. Major stuff-fest. But after a couple of hours I felt fine and it is now almost bedtime and I feel full and happy!

I ate from about 1pm-2pm:

4 C salad with mushrooms, black olives, 2 cherry tomatoes, cucumber, mixed greens, sprinkles of shredded cheddar
Olive oil and 3 TBSP ranch dsg
2 Salmon patties with slice of pepper jack cheese, red onions, tomato
10 pc of mixed california style sushi
20 oz ice decaf vanilla caramel with whole milk (no whip! yuck)
2 large donuts

I am calling this The Large Lunch Diet. I can go all morning and not be hungry and then around 11-2 in that range get hungry, eat my one hour RM and be fine for another 23 hours. Loving it. No hunger at all, eating PLENTY of great veggies, protein, and my favorite carbs in ample amounts. I also drink plenty of fresh water the rest of the day as well.

I have noticed I tend to do one part veggies, one part protein/fats, and 1-2 parts carbs and am still losing weight. I will ride this as long as I can! That is it

Even though I was up 1.6 pounds last week my overall average for this month from last month was a 1.6 loss so I am not going to be deterred! The only thing I have changed recently is the time of day I am eating my one and only meal which is RM and I think my metabolism is just figuring out what to do with the change.

Today's RM between 3pm-4pm:

4 cup salad of red sails luttuce, half a shredded carrot, 3 TBSP ranch a few crutons

1 large steak

1 hot dog (no bun)

1 can Pepsi

1 egg salad sandwhich

1 pc of flourless chocolate cake

1 C vanilla ice cream

5 pc of See's candy chocolates


Yes, I eat like this almost every day and still lose! The exceptions would be the soda and bread on the sandwhich which were "extras" today as I don't usually encorporate those types of foods in my diet.

Hey all I am still here. I check almost daily but have been hanging back hoping others would post. Not sure if this thread has been abandoned? I am still on plan doing a one hour carb meal called a Reward Meal per Carbohydrated Addict's Diet most days and occaisionally let my hour go longer like over 2 hours for special occiasions. Right now I am in a 2 week plateau with daily wts/weekly avg but I am still eating awesome and feeling good and know this is par for the course. Hope other IF'rs are doing well?!!?

Hey MIW! I'm still around and doing my 5 hour window (sometimes 6 or 7), although I'm thinking about changing it up a bit. I have a hard time getting my water in, so I've been putting cucumber and lime slices in it, and sipping on it all day--this week I've gotten at least 100 oz a day doing it this way. My weight actually has gone UP since Sunday, and I'm wondering if this has anything to do with it. I weigh in the mornings, so I don't think I'm carrying any extra water at that time....

I'm tossing around the idea of going to one big meal a day--either the big breakfast, or a big meal like you do for your RM. I'm finding that with me sipping the cuke/lime water, I'm not hungry when my eating window opens, but I've been eating just out of habit...so I'm thinking I might benefit from skipping the lunchtime meal. I want to continue how I'm drinking my water, but do you think putting the cuke/lime slices is negatively affecting the fasting process?

Happy to see your positive results! Keep it up!

I know my husband swears by lemon water. I would think the cucumbers are just fine. The lime, maybe. Just depends on if you are losing weight or plateauing or not since you started that. Do you have other "symptoms" of insulin issues since adding the lime water such as hunger, cravings, getting tired, weight gain or plateaus, etc? I know for me trigger foods seems to just cause stalls in weight loss, I don't tend to get the other "symptoms."

I know I feel so good only eating once a day and do not miss the other meals one bit. When I was doing them for breakfast I was literally stuffed ALL DAY but around 5-8 would feel ravenous and could totally eat another huge meal if I allowed my self to. Switching to eating later in the morning or afternoon carries me all the way through the other 23 hours just fine which is why I do it for a Large Lunch meal (my name for my diet! LOL).

If there are days where a special event/dinner happens I will eat a small "CM" of just protein/veggies at my usual lunch time then my carbs and stuff for my one our reward meal time!

Started my TOM so that could be part of my recent weight gain/plateau. I had to go back and count the calendar since it seemed like it came quicker than usual but only 27 days so that is in the normal range. Still chugging along and eating awesome!

Today's RM eaten between 11-12. I call it the Large Lunch diet! LOL

5 C salad of romaine lettuce
4 TBSP Hidden Valley Ranch dsg
1 C ground beef crumbles
1 large chicken breast
small egg salad sandwich
1 C hash browns
1 C strawberries
1 Hershey's bar
Large iced caramel mocha with whole milk (about 1 oz chocolate syrup, 2 ounce caramel sauce, 6 ounces whole milk)

This isn't necessarily a meal I would have planned, just a lot of left overs, and stuff the kids wanted then didn't eat and I hate to see it go to waste. I could have easily skipped half of this but when I break down the calories and don't really feel like eating other meals I do get worried about limiting calories so I do kind of push the envelope a bit to get my range of 1800-2600 calories in each day.

Too hot today! Up to 90 degrees and fairly humid to boot.

Went to a potluck BBQ with some people I grew up with. Was nice to see us all grown and our own kids running around.

RM only day from 3-4pm:

1 hotdog with bun, ketchup
1/2 can strawberry soda
2 small choc chip cookies
1 C mixed raw vegies
1 C canned beans, green beans (vinagery type- not sure what it is called)
1 C "ambrosia" (cool whip, cottage cheese, strawberry jello powder packet, frozen triple berry mix)
1 C pasta salad
2 pc of Chicken spinach bake

Well, only up a tenth of a pound for my weekly avg and being on TOM not too shabby. Blech however to being 5 weeks ago I saw 213 and still not back near it. I looked back through all my daily wts and see that it is just how it goes. You will see a "new low" and then have to wait a month or more before that weight becomes your weekly avg and so the trend goes. I am hoping maybe sometime next week to see 213-215 DAILY and NO MORE 216-217!!!!

Week 30- 215.4 214.8 213 213.6 215 218.5 215.1 (215.1) -0.8

Week 31- 214 216.2 215.4 214.8 214.4 214.8 215.8 (215.06) -0.04

Week 32- 217 216.6 216.2 216.6 216.6 216.2 217.4 (216.7) +1.6

Week 33- 216 214.4 215.6 216.2 216.2 X 215.4 (215.6) -1.1

Week 34- 215.6 216.2 214.8 216.2 215.2 214.8 216.4 (215.6) -0

Week 35- 217 X 215.8 215.8 216 215 214.6 (215.7) +0.1

I have cukes, lemons, and limes to put in my water, and I've switched to cuke/lemon slices--I'm able to get plenty of water in this way, where I've always had such a struggle even getting 20 oz in! My weight dropped 3 pounds when I stepped on the scale this morning, so I'm hoping that's a good sign! At 5am, I had a big breakfast with potatoes and eggs, and a string cheese stick at 1pm. I'm surprisingly satisfied. I'm hoping I can just get by with a LC snack at dinnertime. I don't even know what I would call this WOE if it works for me...since I'm planning on carby potatoes being included in my one big meal each day...lol

Sounds like The Big Breakfast Diet (in a way) or even more close to The Stress Eating Cure. Basically you eat and get all your carbs and biggest meal out of the way for breakfast (the earlier the better too- has to do with other hormones besides insulin). On the SEC diet, you then have your protein/veggie only meals for lunch and dinner. On the BBB diet I believe there are other carbs you can have later in the day but it is still mainly LC. Good luck!
