Hi everyone/anyone. I have been reading this thread and others for a few days now. I see this one has tapered off. Did everyone move to another thread or site? Please share

WOE: One meal a day CAD style
Start Date: November 1, 2012
Sorry I am not online as much as I used to be. I had a month of eating later in the day and drinking with a lot of my RM "carb meal" hours and gained 5 lbs in one month! I am back to eating my carbs earlier in the day but I don't actually follow the BBD. I am more the Stress Eating Cure version or CAD by the Heller's but they promoted the BBD a lot in their book about the benefit of eating carbs and big meal first in the day.

After a week I am back to the 214-215 range and it will probably take me another 2-3 weeks to get back to the 211-212 range since I lose slow. I eat high calorie so I am ok with the slowness. I just want to say hang in there and this WOE does work! It is not a crash fad diet with instant results. My results have been super slow but a 20-25 pound loss is still a loss considering the amount of calories I consume! It has been over the course of a year and a half but very consistent. I eat similar to Oriana so if you scroll back through the thread you will see many posts by her and me of our menus to give an idea of what I mean when I say high calorie.

Glad to see you both still posting MIW I have read this entire thread and the CAD/CALP hangout, TWICE, lol. I have learned many helpful things and reading all of your posts helped convince me that this is the only way I can lose without actually starving myself. I started on Atkins Induction but always felt very dizzy in the mornings. It scared me, so I started looking for a different way. I am loving this!

the two methods described on pages 46 & 47:

turbocharged - 610-850 calorie breakfast, as outlined in the book. no fats/oils during lunch or supper. basically following the menus in the book.

relaxed - you can have up to 3,000 calories, with minimal fats/oils at lunch and supper.

I'm doing the higher calorie breakfast, around 2000 calories so far. Usually only a meat for lunch around 3PM and nothing for supper. Still way too full from breakfast to eat anything. Minimal cravings as long as i drink unsweetened tea. In your opinion, which causes faster results?

the turbocharged method would cause faster results. but 2 lbs. in 4 days is pretty fast, if you ask me. i'd stick with what you're doing.

WOE: One meal a day CAD style
Start Date: November 1, 2012
Hi all! I am still out here. Last week was my birthday week and a vacation where hubby and I got to go to the ocean for a trip just the two of us (no kids) and was our first night away together and alone in over 10 years. Needless to say that trip was a "cheat" trip but only one day was overdone with alcohol more than once a day. Anyway, on Monday I was 220.4 lbs! Today on Saturday I am at 213. 4 lbs!!!

7 Pounds in 5 days lost. Not too shabby. What I am doing is a modified juice fast ala Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead style along with CAD. It is not strict CAD since I am technically having some carbs (veggie based) at more than one meal but my focus is a "reboot" (hyper nutrients back to the body and resetting taste buds with REAL food).

What I am doing is juicing along with meat/protein sources. Some resistant starch with cold baked potatoes or potato salad (I found an "all natural" one at Costco).

I have a fruity type juice for breakfast with apples, and another glass that is carrots, grapefruit, and today I will be adding oranges. This is my main "carby" meal of the day. I have a small pc of protein like a baked chicken leg or a couple of pc of string cheese with it. I am afraid of just juicing because I do feel the difference and know I am hyperinsulinemic and the main thing I have felt is getting sweaty about an hour after I eat which I assume is blood sugar crashing down. Otherwise I have tons of energy and feel great- and I mean GREAT!!!

For lunch and dinner (if I need a dinner) I have a big "mean green" juice that is cucumbers, celery, cilantro, parsley, kale, and some lemon and maybe an apple mixed in. Then I have whatever protein I want, and I also eat a whole cucumber, carrot, and avocado along with it.

For a snack or meal I will sometimes just have the juice along with a whole cucumber and a piece of landjager which is a type of German pepperoni that is delicious. It just depends on the day.

Oh- also I am back to exercising as well and have been doing this for the last couple of weeks. I walk a mile in about 30 minutes, then do a total body series of arms, legs, abs that is strict calisthenics that kicks butt.

My goal is to maybe slowly go into a total juice only fast for a while, then go back to the modified version I am doing along with protein and then merge into more strict CALP with a focus on mainly whole foods and maybe two "junk" carb meals a week.

I think in review of my last 18 months I just slowly started carb loading more and more and hence the stall and then slow gain. I knew all along I would get serious again if I regained 5-10 lbs so when that happened I decided to head it off!

MIW

Hi everyone! My little stint on raw food isn't working. The only way I lost was eating early BB and day 7 free days. I am sticking it out to prove it either way. If it doesn't work I am back to stay.

Hi everyone! I've been reading this thread and just know this is for me. Since I get up between 4&5 I will have some calories before work and the rest around 7:30. Wish me luck. I will talk more of myself later!

Ok. I am stuffed to the gills with 1266 calories according to fat secret. If I had spread these same calories over the whole morning I would want to eat again soon. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast so I am really hoping this will work for me. I am going to down load the diet on my nook today. From what I saw on amazon, it looks different from what I am seeing here. I like the idea of one large meal and not getting hungry for the rest of the day.

I down loaded The Big Breakfast Diet and was disappointed. I think I should have gotten the Heller's new book instead. My breakfast kept me full all day and I didn't have a smoothy or milk with it. It said no more than 3 eggs a week. Oh well, I'm on the right track for me. This thread has given me pretty much all I needed. Think I'll check out the CAD thread.

what do you mean? it looks different? what book are you referring to.

i wouldn't worry about going against the "3 eggs a week" rule. lol we have laying hens, and when i eat eggs, i have 3 at a sitting.

pick and choose and create your own diet. why not? as long as it works. my main reasoning behind why i do what i do is keeping cravings down. with cravings down, i can do anything.

i have a lot of diet books on my shelf. i should toss most of them. the ones i will keep are the heller's books, BBD, JUDDD, and every other day diet (dr. varady). those i rerererereread all the time. you may be surprised that you'll pick up tidbits from BBD that you hadn't read before. every little bit helps.

what is the "fat secret"? is it a diet? what are the rules? i'm curious.

i had my own version of BBD. as BBD prescribes, i make sure to have a LOT of protein (more than even what she tells you to have). i didn't have the smoothies, either. i usually have a protein drink, sometimes with water, sometimes with milk. the protein is the key as to why the BBD/SEC work so well for me.

I guess what surprised me most was that it stressed eating three meals. I know you don't have to and I didn't, just surprised. Yes, I will find new things I never new before so that is a good thing. Like you I am combining different things. Ex: in the am before leaving for work I plan on a cup of coffee with CO and HWC. Then when I get to work I will finish with the rest of the meal. This morning I had two chicken thighs, an orange, my "messy potatoes", 2 poached eggs and a coconut bar I found at the dollar store yesterday.

How wonderful to go the entire day not hungry or craving! I did JUDDD last spring and lost about 15 pounds. But I gained it all back over the hollidays. Has been tough getting back on board but this seems to be the ticket for me. The IF aspect really helps me, too.

Fat Secret is an onling sight that you can plug in your calories and weight. It breaks it all down for you and they have most things in there. One feature I like is that it saves your foods so you dont't have to search much the next time. There is even a graph that shows your carbs, fats, proteins, etc for the entire day. Check it out. I find its a great tool.

By the way, what is SEC? Is that the Heller's new book?

You definitely will feel fuller all day if you include at least 7 oz. of protein in your BB. You really feel like you are satisfied and done eating. When you get to maintenance you get a free day on the 7th day which is nice.

He Hellers latest book emphasises eating a breakfast rm in the Stress Eating Cure. It says that you will feel better and more satisfied eating your carbs earlier in the day instead of for a rm dinner BUT you still have the alternative. It is kind of nice to have the option of eating dinner sometimes.

i don't think there's a better woe for my craving tendencies. don't post here much, but i read the board a lot.

i am still doing maintenance right now, but would like to tackle some more weight loss eventually. (i've always looked younger than my age, but after these last five pounds lost, a lot of new facial lines cropped up.)

i didn't. BBD also states that you don't need to eat supper, if you don't want, to make it more turbo charged.

we don't talk about the 3 meals here, but isn't it nice to know that you can if you're having a rougher time? i only have a second meal about once a month. i've been thinking that i should start having supper, at least. i'm rather testy, sometimes, as i'm getting supper ready for the family in the evening. i think i'm going to make more of a point of having some protein just before doing that.

once everyone has their food, i'm okay, but spooning food up and getting it onto the table works on my nerves. it's a mind thing, i know.

I can understand where your coming from. Thank God I don't worry too much anymore about that because it's only me and my adult son who takes care of his own meals for the most part.
The first day I ate one time and had snack of tart cherries and yogurt before bed. (trying alternative inflamation foods to replace NSAID's. Not working so good). Yesterday I had my BB and achicken thigh with green beans for dinner.

So far today Fat Secret says I have had 79.74( 26%) carbs, 81.75 fat (52%), and 76.45 prot. (22%). Total calories are 1405. I am hoping to make this my only meal. Time will tell.

I wold like to get to only one meal a day with nooooo hunger.

Eating my big breakfast as my only meal is the best way for me. If I eat more it is because you are allowed a free day on the 7th day of maintenance. I lost the most on this than any other diet I have tried.

so, what time are you eating it and what are you having for your one meal? I really do want to get to just the breakfast meal but for now I have a CM around noon and some HWC in decalf in the evening.
