Default No weight loss

I have been real strict on this plan for the past 10 days but have only seen a 5 pound weight loss and I am 395lbs. I was thinking I should of doubled it at my 10 day mark with the weight I have to lose. I cut out all diet sodas and I only drink black coffee with (no sweetner) and water throughout the day. My reward meals have been large but well balanced and all under 30 to 45 mins. The only other thing I can think of is to stop eating onions with my LC meals. I have 2 hamburger patties or 3 or 4 eggs fried with Boars head beef bologna(no sugar) both fried with onions(about a half an onion). I knew onions had about 10 carbs so I would have a half a day. I will now cut that out and see what happens for my next 10 days. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
David

Onions are limited to 2 tablespoons outside of RM, if at all. They may coase cravings in some people.

I bumped up the "cheat sheet" thread for your reference to the allowed foods list.

Okay now I am confused. I am reading the CAD book right now and on page 117 it says diet soda is okay as long as it in under four grams of carbs? Please advise.

Diet sodas are considered a carb "act like" and some people react to them just as if they were comprised of full sugar, the Hellers covered this in their second book, CALP. YMMV.

Complimentary Meal and Reward Meal. These are the two types of meals on the CAD plan.

Default salad instead of veggies

does anyone know if it would be ok to have a salad instead of veggies for RM? I know some people have both like the book says to do, but since a salad is also veggies, would it be ok to just have that? Wouldn't it still be balanced to have like say, a chicken sandwich and a salad? Just wondering. Bye, Amy

Hi Amyvr,

I do sometimes just have a large salad instead of a salad and CM veggies on my plate. I normally do that when I have added a lot of extra yummy veggies to my salad. I can only eat so many veggies.

I agree with you. You know, I am trying hard to balance my RM. Would you be able to eat breaded meat with another carb like bread or chips, or do you have to count the flour on the battered meat as the only carb when trying to balance? Just wondering. Thanks, Amy

Hey, I really want to start losing, but I can't control my RM. Has anyone heard that eating yogurt burns fat? I bet it's another gimmick to sell a product. Amy.

use commen sense and portion size. A little flour coating isn't bad, batter is a lot more and should be counted.

Yogurt is not proven, just speculation.

I just found out why I am feeling so great on LC... I had extensive allergy tests done this week... I am allergic to wheat!!! I have also been on steriods for the past three weeks and now I am up to 214 again ...oh well, my ankles and hands are swollen and the dr. says that when I finish my course of steriods that the water weight will come off.

Hi CADERS:

I'm thinking of doing CAD and have been reading lots of posts and find
them very informative. I seem to constantly sabotage myself and thought
that CAD may be a good choice for me.

I was wondering about ground flaxseeds and where they would fit in - CM
or RM? I usually have 1-2 tbs. in whey protein powder (1 gram carb) - is that legal for a CM? I have the Heller's book but don't see mention of flaxseeds which I love.


Thanks
LizzyLC

Flaxseeds at CM have led some CADers into trouble. If would do at least a week "clean" without them before adding them in to see how they affect you.

A few questions....

1.
Quote:
10. Using net carb theory.

Are we not supposed to subtract fiber from the veg's at CM's? If that is the case, then how do we keep it under 4g?

2.
Quote:
6. LC recipes or lc products during CM.

What if the LC recipes are made from everything on the allowed lists? Would that be okay? I can understand products because alot of them include AS.

3
Quote:
21. SF Metamucil or fiber outside CM/RM.

How do you all consume the powdered fiber during a CM? I am scared to even make tea with AS in it. Should I just wait until my drink with my RM?

I do have the book and I have been reading it...maybe I haven't gotten to these specific parts but, I did look in the index for key words. Please forgive me if these are ignorant questions!!

Katie

P.S. Nice to join you all, today is my second day on CAD. I have been on Atkins since May 05 and that is how I lost my weight.

I am excited to be on CAD and I am really trying to focus today on getting my RM a bit more balanced...I think the excitement of it all led to a bit more of my carb portion last night!
