WOE: One meal a day CAD style
Start Date: November 1, 2012
This week I am on track for my lowest weekly avg wt in 7 months!

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,
cilantro, parsley: 10 cal

Total Calories: 1890 calories

WOE: JUDDD / Fast-5
Start Date: 6/7/12
i'm getting rather anxious to finish my weight loss, as i've been dieting almost a year, but i still have 30 pounds left. so i implemented juddd with the BBD, since it has worked very well for me overall.

i'm doing juddd down days every other day. on down days i have absolutely nothing to eat/drink other than black coffee until supper, but i find fasting all that time very easy. as most obese people, i can go all day long without eating anything until supper. otherwise, the carb monster drives me mad! my meal consists of high protein and a sweet of some sort, as prescribed in BBD.

on opposite days, i'm having my BBD by 9:00. i started saving some calories for the evening. this has worked wonderfully. if i eat all of my food before 9, i'm physically sick. so i decided to save 500 calories for the evening. that would technically be a CAD cm. this method has made me one happy camper. i'm finally in control of the carbs. still pinching myself over what i've learned about my metabolism lately.

I see you are now down 80 and no longer in the 70 lbs club!

Yes, I think I definately will have to play with it. Today I feel great and it is almost 8pm and NO hunger at all today despite having eaten so much and fairly carb heavy this am. While I wasn't actually hungry for it, I made myself eat the egg and bacon along with the tuna sandwhich as I have been wondering if I wasn't getting enough protein to counteract all the carbs when I eat earlier in the day so that might be why I didn't initially like doing one meal a day only so early. I too am not hungry any earlier than around 10am ish so there is no way I could eat all my 1800-2600 calories before then, but between 10-12 I think I will be fine going the rest of the day with nothing.

MIW, BBD insists upon 7 servings of protein before 9, but it did take my mind awhile to wrap itself around the concept. after a week, i was sold.

yesterday, we had plans for lunch after church. so i didn't want to mess things up too badly. i consumed this before 9:

8 oz. skim milk - 1 serving
protein powder - 2 servings
4 oz. hamburger patty - 4 servings

viola! 7 servings quickly consumed. now, for the the fun! lol it's not really so hard to get it in, and best of all, i'm never ever hungry later in the day. life's just too short to go without the fun dinners/get togethers. imho

so at lunch i ate the rest of my calorie allotment, including more protein because i personally do better with a lot.

i did NOT have a sweet, like BBD recommends. lo and behold, at around 4, i was dying for something sweet. the author was right! this is the first time i neglected having a sweet with my meal since i started the BBD. she states that if you don't have a sweet, you will crave it later. well, i found that out. i ended up having 8 chocolate covered peanuts, and i was fine. the rest of the day, too! i really didn't believe her concept about that until this was proven yesterday. totally strange how that worked.

Today I was hungry by 8am but had to run errands so now eating between 10-11am today for my RM. I made sure yesterday and today to get 7 ounces of protein. I have to have something sweet! I actaully did very well yesterday and was not hungry one bit at all during the day and only maybe felt a bit shakey but just barely noticeable about 3 hours after eating. Not sure if that was the blood sugar levels going down but it was not near as bad as the first day I tried eating RM earlier.

The one thing I really dig about doing a morning RM is that is when I like to have coffee so now I am back to making my iced mochas with my RM at home (I have my own esspresso machine) and that is the one thing I gave up when doing CAD and missed a lot.

Todays Meal consumed 10am-11am:

1 very large fried pork chop (no breading)
20 oz iced mocha with whole milk (only 1 cup of milk)
1 can of drained organic green beans
2 small slices of french bread with butter
1/2 c canned okra with chili flakes and tomato paste (something a co-worker gave me to try)
1 small pc of carrot cake and 1 small pc of german chocolate cake

I like the energy I have all day when I eat my rm or BB early in the day. I do find though that it is better to eat all my food in an hour and not space it out. MIW you didn't eat that much yesterday. I have to eat a lot of sweets. I had 2 lg. Costco carrot cake cupcakes with pizza yesterday. YUM!

Oh I get my carbs! I do find if I am doing and RM only day, especially for breakfast if I even stop eating for a couple of minutes I instantly feel full so it is hard for me to cram in as many calories as I'd like. Don't worry about me though- I am ALWAYS sure to get in my carbs. I even started carrying some chocolate in my purse since one time at a crappy RM at a restaurant I couldn't get any dessert and was so bummed to miss out on that during the RM. I also now know where most drive through places are near restaurants we go to as a back up because I do not want to miss out on my desserts during RM's. I decided this was for life and I was not going to give anything up. As long as I can eat this much and continue to lose I am going to eat all the foods I enjoy and in the amounts I feel comfortable eating!

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).

Jen, I have to have a sweet or I am doomed. MIW is trying to start eating earlier now too and it is having a great result. I know the biggest thing is the social aspect of eating rm for dinner but I find that if I get up really early like 4-5 a.m. I am ready for my biggest meal by 8 a.m. and no measuring or fuss and eating up to 3000 calories is a dream. I like the fact that on maintenance I can eat BB for 6 days and have the 7th day to eat with family and friends all day long. Also, if I have to push my BB to later in the day then that's okay. It is even in the book which talks about sleeping in or getting up later and eating BB then. How are you doing?

Yesterday's BB was around 11 a.m. and it was a lg. Taco Fiesta salad, chips and salsa, soda, and then I had my Starbucks in my purse with 6 cookies so instead of pulling them out and eating them at the table I went to the ladies room and ate them. I didn't want to order dessert because I wasn't paying. You have to take care of yourself. I know if I hadn't eaten that dessert then I would have been longing for sugar later and then it would have turned into a free day and I like to plan those and not just have them on a whim. Pack your desserts! Even if you need to carry a little freezer pack in a bag in your purse!

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)

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

MIW - that's wonderful! i'm glad you retried it!

oriana - considering my weight, i've always been a slow loser. With still a long road yet to haul, i'm continuing to do BBD every other day. on opposite days i'm doing a JUDDD down day, with a moderately low carb for supper. i do have a small supper (no starches) because otherwise, i can feel crabby. i have a husband who talks nonstop, and if i'm feeling even a twinge of hunger watching him eat, i'm not as responsive as he needs me to be. another reason i started having something for supper is that consuming so much for my BB makes me terribly groggy. this method makes me a happy camper.

Haha I just now noticed you and I are in the same weight range. Congrats on all the weight you lost! I bet you feel great! I can't wait until I lose my 80-100 pounds and get to maintenance

I am reading The Stess Eating Cure now by the Heller's and purchased The Big Breakfast Diet so I look forward to reading that too when I get it. I like following the tips of CAD/CALP aid with insulin resistance so I most likely won't follow BB principles other than to learn how they fit in with CAD/CALP and doing the RM earlier in the day. So far what I have read in the SEC is very enlightening about how all various hormones impact eating and how people more likely to have imbalances are also insulin resistant because it goes hand in hand so it would do most LC folks well to learn more about how carbs affect various hormones and are needed and can still be consumed but actually HELP someone feel better and lose weight and not be avoided all together.

MIW - yes, we're the same weight! you'll be passing me up in no time! actually, i don't feel great. i never had health problems related to my weight. i do have more stamina, but that's about it. i don't feel 77 pounds lighter. i have a problem with anemia and am on 2 iron tablets. my husband tells me to quit losing, but i want to lose at least enough weight to where i feel more energetic, if that's possible.

i was hoping that by doing juddd down days every other day, that i'd lose quicker, but that isn't happening. today, i decided to just stick with the BBD for awhile to see if i can get things to budge. i know that i was happier (i.e. no craving) before i incorporated the juddd in the equation.

i have found having my RM (no CMs) before 9, i still cannot eat all i want. i think a select number of people could, but i'm not one of them. i've always had a slower metabolism, so this is no surprise to me.

Jenn, I think you will do better on just doing the BBD and not JUDDD. It is too restricting. I think if you are patient you will lose on one meal a day at breakfast and include 7 or MORE oz. of protein.

yesterday was supposed to be a juddd down day, so it was easy to just tell myself enough is enough! juddd wrecks havoc with my craving and satiety levels.

so i had my BBD, with a lower calorie expenditure (1350), since i'd had an up day previously. i needed to do that as i was afraid i'd gain weight after an up day (2200). but i was craving free all the way up to bedtime.

i do soooo much better when i just eat one meal. even eating basically no carb food at a later meal messes with my mind. so, other than special dinners, i'm just going to solely do the BBD and see how things go.

btw, for my state of mind, i do make sure to get at least 10 oz. of protein.

Jenn, you know you can have an up day every day on BB. Seriously, I eat at least 2000-2500 calories for breakfast or brunch and lose. I too have a very slow metabolism. There was a time I was running up to 15 miles a day and eating a raw fruit diet and gained weight while everyone else around me was eating hamburgers and french fries and losing. I couldn't even lose on 1000 calories a day back in the dieting days.

Don't forget if you need to eat a dinner just fast all day and have your rm for dinner. Although I have to admit I don't feel as satisfied with my rm dinners as with my BB but it is nice to know you can have dinner if you go out. I too cannot have cms or low carb mini meals. I always want a dessert with them and then it turns into another rm so I steer clear unless I am on maintenance and can have a free day on BB diet.

MIW let us know more about what you think of the Stress Eating Cure and THe Big Breakfast Diet when you get it. Alot of people say "Oh I already eat 600 calories for breakfast " But they don't realize that you can eat up to 3000 and it still works. Also in Eat and Be Happy the author says to only eat breakfast and no other meals so I don't eat the other meals that BB DIet says to eat. SHe really only says to eat the lunch and skip dinner but I am never hungry for lunch with my BB appetite! LOL!

Thinking of incorporating Eat Fat Get THin with my BB one meal. I keep losing eating higher fats. Interesting reading that thread. I know I have to stick to one meal though. Even some of them only eat once a day because the fat makes them full all day. Don't worry, I'll never give up my sweets or carbs but will include more fat and protein for satiation.

Yes, I will let you know when I get the book what I think. I too feel really good on one meal a day and it is always an RM and as much as I can eat. It really does work for hunger but the other day I ate my BB before work between 4:20-5:20 am and by 6:00pm was ravanous so went out to eat with a co-worker and had another RM type meal of sushi and misu soup. Plus got a shake and slice of cheese cake from jack in the box drive through. Ended up gaining 4 lbs which was a record! LOL but I know it was because of the salt and even with that high weigh on my weekly record I will be at my lowest weight in almost 8 months! I decided "what the heck" and decided to just make it a "free day" and not sweat it. '

This is for life and this is living!

Oh yeah I am eating fabulous foods and really feeling satisfied. I mean this is so awesome. No counting points, NEVER feeling hungy and if I do- i eat and still lose!

Todays RM:

20 oz decaf iced mocha/caramel/vanilla with 2% milk
1 large molases cookie with icing
a French Dip with au jus
1/4 of a steamed cabbage
2 peice of chicken upper thigh
1 C white rice with teriyaki sauce
1 C steamed squash, carrots, green beans

Ate around 11:30-12:15 and as of 9:30 pm still full and after a 14 hour day at work came home and guerilla gardened some strawberry plants that I planted in downtown and brough some of the baby plants back home for my strawberry pots, some fireweed that I transplanted from the side of the road into my wildflower garden, did some mowing after I helped Hubby fix the deck on the riding mower, and then proceeded to weed for about an hour with the kids.

I mean eating tons but within only one hour a day, being totally satisfied and NO HUNGER NO CRAVINGS, having tons of energy, AND AND AND losing weight?

What is not to like about this?????

I am having a later BB or RM at around 1 p.m. because we are BBQing ribeye. I am going to have a big one with salad and lots of fatty dressing, diet pepsi and ice cream. I usually lose on this higher fat meal.

MIW don't sweat the free day as long as it is only once in a while. I too tried eating BB early early at around 5 a.m. and was famished. Live and learn. If I have my rm around 10-11 I am fine all day.

Ya me too. 9-12 is the magic time to be able to make it through 10pm if needed. I am tickled since even with the extra large wt from having that free day my weekly avg is my lowest yet!
