Default looking for new CALP friends! Join me!

Thanks for the input Scottty!! I needed to know something. I was trying to get ahold of the book on this diet but I did not know the title. Believe me I won't start this diet unless I read something on it
I am doing good with Atkins but it is very strict.
Thanks for the title.

Default For mimami4

Hey mimami4:
Here is your answere... CALP stands for Carbohydrate Addicts Lifespan Plan by Dr's Heller and Heller. The idea is that you follow the basic low carb plan except for 1 hr a day. In this hour you eat what is called a reward meal. To understand the concept you really should read one of their books. You can check one out at your local library. That is what I usually do. Then if I like the book I go buy it. Saves me lots of $$$$. It is a way of low carbing it with a little leeway. GOOD LUCK

Default hi everyone,

All I know is CALP is working for me. I read the book also CAD and the Healthy for Life by the Hellers and I'm following what the book says and after averaging my weight for this week, I've lost 3.2 lbs. I feel great and recommend anyone that wants to change diets to read first. If you don't , it won't work because you won't do it right. hope this helps. wawtigress

Default Wawtigress is so fortunate!

I am so happy that the CALP works for Wawtigress, and others, as for me I had been on Atkins for about 5 weeks, and lost 8 pounds, then I followed the CALP for a month, as the book instructed, and I only lost 1 pound!!!!!!! :-(( So, for me the CALP would have to be a maintainence diet!

I think it just depend on your motabolism, if this diet will work, and I guess my motabolism is shot to heck and back!

I wish all of you guys switching from the Atkins to the CALP great success!!!!!!!!!!!! I will be cheering you on!

Thumbs up I'm doing it...



I've been doing the CALP for a week now and it feels good.
None of the lethargy I got with Atkins and I feel a lot more positive. I've been having the reward meal for breakfast and although I haven't weighed myself I feel slimmer (that's half the battle right?)
I lost 8lbs with Atkins put they went back on after one month of following it closely - I think I ate too many calories.
Anyway, I shall monitor my progress and let you know how I get on..
It's nice to see I have company along the way!!!

Hello all,
Madferret, i thought i was the only one feeling lethargic. Dr Atkins talks about feeling good and having energy but I never did get energy and sometimes I became moody.
I don't know exactly how this CALP works or what the meal plans are. I am looking for the book now. What is the plan?

Hello again,
I just scrolled up and saw everyone's replies. I'll check the book out and for now I'll stick with Atkins until I know more about this diet.
Thanks all,
Maria

Thumbs up Carbohydrate Addicts Life

Basically you need to read the book by the 'Hellers' buy it from Amazon.com. But the main points of the plan are that you have 2 very low carb meals (i suggest less than 5carbs per meal) and then one reward meal which MUST be finished within 60 minutes. This meal must contain EQUAL portions of Veg, Protein and carbs and yes, you can have a dessert as long as this fits in with the carb proportions of this meal.
I'm loving it so far although i'm not sure how much i've lost. I'm going to give it a while before I jump on the scales. I have tons more energy and feel 100 times better. Good luck!

Default Welcome to Cad/Calp

I've been on this diet for about 2months and lost steadily a little over 1 lb every week since then , a couple of times,more. This is a slow weight loss but it will stay gone easier than fast loss. You will love the diet if you stick to the book and read it all not just the menu porrtion because there are other things you need to do if your at a certain point. I get upset with people who say the diet don't work and they've only been on it a week or have abused it mercifully or want to change everything in it,. You're not on the diet now when you change it so badly .You're just floundering for a way of life. You can check out my journal t-z and see how I have done and how I follow the book not make up my own version. Wawtigress

Thanks Wawtigress! I agree with you 100%. I don't want to be floundering. The Atkins diet is very strict and it sounds like the CALP diet may work for me but I have to read up on it first.
Thanks
Maria
