Default I'm baacckkk

I'm back from my conference...I wasn't awful, but it was very difficult (in fact, impossible) to stay low-carb. All the meals were provided, so I was limited, especially since all the food was good ole Southern cooking! I kept up my water ration and was on my feet all day, which helped. I got back to my normal eating on Saturday and have already dropped off 3 of the pounds, which must have been water retention since they came off so fast. I still haven't lost my enthusiasm for low-carb and won't have any difficulty sticking to it now that I'm back home. Atkins had the advantage in that I was never hungry, but CALP is so much easier as a way of life.

I did CAD earlier this year at age 50. I found it quite easy and I lost weight, but after about 2 weeks I began to experience "brain fog"--not sharp, lack of concentration. So, I went off the diet and gained back the weight. Let me know what happens to you.

Default Over 50 in fact , I'm 65

I started Atkins on 11-20-01 and did the induction for 14 days and lost 10 lbs but had bad side effects then I switched to Cad/Calp and stayed on it until April 02 and lost an additional 20 lbs. Then for lazy reasons while I had company off and on all summer, I didn't stick to plan . I slowly gained 20 lbs back but kept off the 10lbs. I was really happy on the diet and was satisfied with the food and I always had dessert and still lost my steady lb. a week. To make a long story short , I had my checkup yesterday and my doctor encouraged me to start again. So I checked out the support forum and got reactivated. I see a lot more people are trying the Calp now than when I was on before.So I'm excited. Will be looking forward to talking on computer giving and getting support. wawtigress
