Talking new but not...

Hi. I'm new to the site but not new to CAD. I was put on the diet in 1993 and lost weight. I have since then gone off but have incorporated other tricks to my diet...but have found (11 years later) that all other diets cause me to fall into "binge" mentality...i'm a former eating disorder individual; thus, this mentality is quite dangerous. The one point of the diet that I've had to re-read is the "balancing" of the carb meal...i was veiwing it as a an hour long sugar binge...

I don't know why i'm posting...i guess i just wanted to say hi and that I am new to the site and renewed to the plan.

Wow! I am so glad I found this post....I had been wondering about CAD for a few days, since I'm having a hard time sticking to Atkins, even though I am down a few pounds. I'm going to check out the CAD book and switch over to this WOE. The idea that I can have my favorites in moderation sounds soooo good right now, and it sounds like something I can stick with for life!

Zuleikaa, Thanks for the info! I have read both the CAD & the CALP and you have really helped me clear up some questions.

It's great to see so many successful people here. It gives me hope!

Zule and everyone else - thanks so much for all the good info. I lost all my weight doing Atkins and managed to maintain for over a year without any problems. All of a sudden around the holidays, I've gotten a little bored with it and gained about ten lbs. I started reading CAD and decided maybe I should try it to get rid of some of the cravings I have developed. I am a Carb Addict, for sure. The hardest part is going to be giving up the sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners. I chew an awful lot of sugar free gum and eat a good bit of sf chocolate and ice cream. Actually, my weight is still in the very acceptable range but I'm afraid I'll continue to gain.

I guess this has been discussed but wanted to ask. The new lowcarb yogurts are not acceptable for CM are they because of the artificial sweetener? Also, where does such things as Natural Peanut butter fit in (no sugar) only peanuts and salt. I have read CAD and the CAD 7-Day Plan. I guess I need to read the CALP as well.

Thanks for all your help.

I would say no and no. Nuts are definitely not acceptable for CM and the dairy amount in yogurt is over the 2 ounce limit once a day outside of RM.
