For me that's 2660kcals.

I'm jealous
Well you are a man and men "typically" can lose weight faster because it really is a hormonal issue with fat storage and women have so many hormonal issues. You also probably are younger but good for you! I am approaching 40 in the next couple of years so am desparate to take charge now before I enter another phase of metabolic slow down.

I am 38, female, 5' 2.5 and weight approx. 212 currently but am slowly dropping the fat by eating all those calories and meals you see I posted examples of. It really works and one can lose weight by eating high calorie!

Hellooooooo.....MIW, where are you??

I just wanted to stop in and say that I'm really loving this Big Breakfast thing so far. Had OJ in the mix though, throughout the day for the past week, but now that I'm over my cold the scale is moving down again.

WOE: CAD/CALP One meal a day
Start Date: October 21, 2013
Was so excited to find this thread! I too have decided that One Meal a Day works best for me. I naturally just eat this way. After being on and off low carb diets for years, I have decided to finally try and do CAD/CALP. I have read any and all low carb books I could get my hands on, including almost all the books by the Heller's. I am an information junkie! Unfortunately, I am also a foodie! The premise of this diet has always made sense to me. The only thing that has held me back is the fear of it not working or losing too slowly. Atkins has always worked well for me, and I am afraid to get away from that. But I have finally had to admit to myself that while I lose weight quite well on very low carb and feel much better, it has led to years of losing quickly then binging and gaining it all back. So here I am. Detemined to make this work!!!

WOE: One meal a day CAD style
Start Date: November 1, 2012
Ok all, I officially ended ONE YEAR following CAD/CALP and combo with intermittent fasting. Once I met other people doing Rachael Heller's original way to lose weight by eating only one meal a day I slowly evolved my own eating patterns to that. I make sure to keep to the one hour rule. I am up to about 5 days a week with truely only one meal a day. The other 2, maybe 3 days I do end up having a CM if I need it. I do not force myself to eat the one meal a day. It is my natural hunger that guides me. The days I do get hungry again I will go ahead and have the CM. I also the last 3 months have switched to eating my RM in the morning and try to have it in by 9am according to The Big Breakfast Diet which was heavily cited by the Heller's in their book The Stress Eating Cure.

So now I am doing a combo of CAD/CALP, BBD, SEC, and IF- WOW!!! My personal eating plan is a one hour, total day's supply of calories, at least 7 ounces of protein, and consumed by 9am, balanced of protein/fat, veggies/fruits, and carbs (or at least my ratio that I found I can lose well on). Sounds complicated but is very easy and doeable. I sleep well with no full belly, have seen better results as well with ring being loser, just "appearing" thinner even though weight loss is still slow with a monthly avg of about 1/4 to 1/2 pound a week eating like this.

I did start out following CALP as written. I still avoid MSG, anything SF/AS in it, caffeine (even decaf) outside of my RM hour. I have experimented A LOT in the last year with RM for dinner, RM for lunch, then RM for breakfast. I follow many of the CALP "options" and even tried the GTF chromium for 2 months then went off and did not track any noticeable slow down in weight loss. I try to eat lots of cheese and fresh ground black pepper for natural sources of GTF chromium as the Heller's explained. I "aim" for balance at RM's with the 1/3 protein/fat, 1/3 low carb veggies, 1/3 carbs of my choice. However, along my journey in the last year I discovered I can still eat 1 part protein/fat to 2 parts low carb veggies and 2 parts carbs and still lose!

I probably was only eating about 1300-1500 calories a day the first couple of months but slowly started learning more about intermittent fasting and high calorie weight loss and actually increased my caloric intake but followed "the rules" of CAD and do intermittent fasting enough days of the week that it actually makes me less hungry and able to tolerate the amount of calories I currently eat and still see results.

I eat most days anywhere from 1800-2300 calories. 100-300 gms of carbs. A typical meal consists of this:

1 Large Ribeye Stead

24 ounce Blender Bottle fruit smoothie made from 1 banana, one orange, 1/2 a large apple, 1 Cup each of green grapes, red grapes, and strawberries. 1 Cup of full fat yogurt. I use "Cream Top" by Brown Cow which is 9gms of fat per serving.

12-16 ounces of an ice cream milkshake made with 2-3 cups of regular fat/sugar ice cream, 1/2 to 1 cup of regular half & half, and a Star Buck's Via thrown in for coffee flavoring.

5 chocolate chip cookies

Some days also add a 4 to 6 cup salad of mixed baby greens and 4 TBSP of regular Hidden Valley Ranch.

It may seem over the top to eat all that in one meal but I found I is doable, I do not feel stuffed like I am after a typical Thanksgiving meal. The full feeling last ALL DAY long and I am getting awesome tastey foods day in and day out!

My personal opinion on this WOE, sprinkled with hours of research on insulin resistance, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, syndrome X, hyperinsulinemia is that it isn't so much about the calories but is about minimizing insuin surges the rest of the day. Also about surpressing some of the other hormones like cortisol while raising and maintaing seratonin. There are suggestions by the Heller's and Dr. Jacobowitz in the BBD book and SEC book so I slowly encorporated those.

I only want to share my story of the past year and what has worked for me. I have only been off plan a total of 10 days (or less) in the last year. I learned that it took me 17 days to take off the weight from 4 days off plan! I learned that it can take 2 days for the result of a cheat day to show up on the scale. My point is that being off plan can serve a purpose too in the scientific method of learning about my own personal metabolism.

WOE: One meal a day CAD style
Start Date: November 1, 2012
Last year on this day I was 235 pounds. Today I am 211.8 pounds. Yesterday's RM only day for breakfast 8am-9am:

McDonold's:
1 Bacon, egg, cheese McGriddle plus just the bacon, egg, cheese from a second and I chucked the buns

2 breakfast sausage burritos with mild sauce

24 ounces homemade fruit smoothie with full fat yogurt

16 ounces of homemade ice cream milkshake made with 3 cups regular ice cream, 1 cup regular half & half

2 smore's cookies.

I couldn't eat anything else and I was FULL all day. I was 212.4 lbs yesterday and today my all time lowest weight (now seen for the THIRD time!). This really works!

WOE: no Money no Food Diet
I've been on the "One meal a day" plan (although I call it the "No Money No Food" diet) when my investments tanked, even though things are better now, I've generally stayed on the diet and lost 40# initially and managed to keep it off. The doctors are mostly pleased and have been able to drop some meds and reduce my insulin intake.

Well I am definately sad that you have no money for food, but what is the food that you do eat for your one meal a day? At least you have some positives out of the lack of money!

Since starting on August 27th i have been pretty much sticking to one meal a day in additional to low carb. I admit that i sometimes treat myself to a small breakfast (2 jimmy dean sausage's with 2 eggs) on Saturday every couple of weekends.

Otherwise its 2 cups of coffee in the morning, water and ecodrink through the day, then Dinner in the evening.

Hi all! I have been eating one meal a day for the past 6 days and have lost 4 pounds. I started doing this because I have been slowing re-gaining since April 2012. I over did it at Thanksgiving and my weight jumped to 167. I reigned in my eating and got to 162 by 12/12/13. 12/12 is the anniversary of my LC WOE. Started at 176 in 2011 and saw 145 briefly. Held 150 longer and felt good. But I got lazy in my choices and up, up, up the scale went. I do not want to be uncomfortable and I refuse to go back to bigger clothes.

So I started reading and found Maria Emmerich's WOE - Healthy, LC with nutritional fats. When I added healthy fats into my eating, I suddenly was no longer hungry for breakfast or lunch! So I am only eating dinner that is under 1,000 calories. Cooking with coconut oil and real butter is very satisfying.

If you haven't read any of Maria's book, I highly recommend them. She makes so much sense. I guess I am IFing, but don't know it

I am hoping that I can get back to 150 by New Year's Eve (where I was last New Years).

I don't necessarily PLAN one meal a day. Sometimes it just happens. Even though I'm hungry, I get distracted by other things and just don't eat. Like today and yesterday. Then who knows, tomorrow I might have a protein bar in the morning, a filling salad for lunch, and good protein for dinner. I'm still losing so I guess that's okay.

i'm loving how disciplined and patient i can be. This is really doing great things for me mentally.

For me, it's MUCH easier to just NOT eat than to have to make a healthy wise decision every 3-4 hours and risk overdoing it. I love having a big ole delicious meal waiting for me every night. i get to be satisfied, full and happy EVERY DAY!

I'm eating dinner with DH that consists of meat and veggies. He sometimes has a starch, sometimes not. I try to stay under 1,000 calories with most calories coming from healthy fats. I have to admit that if I get to the point that I want to eat something during the day, I'll simply scoop out a tablespoon of coconut oil and let it melt in my mouth.
Sounds gross, but I like the way it feels. It really has no taste.

I have also gravitated towards one meal a day. It's just something that is really natural to me and gives me discipline. It is the way I started initially losing weight before I just got conned into every single diet book and eating plan and got off course. I can't do breakfast or eat too early in the day despite what the experts say, so basically what I do is refrain from eating until as late as I can, which is usually dinner-time. I do allow myself milky coffees though throughout the day..it keeps me on plan and if that's what I gotta do well then so be it. I I am taking a truckload of supplements at the moment which are really working for me and of course I follow LC. I read somewhere about it being important to end your "fast" with a protein or a safe food ie. not a trigger food because your body ends up craving this food. Don't quote me I'm relying on memory at the moment but if anyone wants to know more I could resource it better. I'm not game yet to add a RM; I have too many food issues, and I just don't trust myself but I really hope I can one day be cured and eat sensibly like a normal human being and indulge regularly in a reward food portioned in the freezer. For now though I will cruise along and looking forward to all the yummy meats on Christmas Day.

WOE: One meal a day CAD style

Hi everyone! I am so glad to check back and see everyone here and doing soooo well! LOL I am also doing mainly one meal a day, occaisionally if I do get hungry I will go ahead and eat something but it is very low carb like meat and cheese. I have been in a stall but that is ok- I do not count calories and in fact am SURE I am eating more than when I first started low carbing. If I don't get back in time: Merry Christmas everyone!
