I can't remember where I saw this but apparently there is name for what you do. There is a disease or syndrome or something about people sleep walking and eating. They go on this diet and eat normally all day, then sleepwalk at night eating all sorts of things, and then they can't understand why they're gaining weight when they're following their diets to the letter.
I saw this on TV this week but can't remember which show they were talking about it. What a coincidence that I would see your post and it talks about the same thing.
Look into it a little further, there's even a name for it. Maybe Doreen would be able to help us on this.
I would suggest that you try to maintain your CAD regimen. If you just need to pig out or do emotional eating during RM it won't hurt you and you won't gain weight. Without CAD you definitely will. Don't worry about salads and portion sizes just eat what you want in the amount you need. Doing CAD in 3/4 time won't work and will just cause increased cravings and depression. Things you don't want or need right now. And with winter here once you start spiralling out of control, it can be very hard to get that control back. You can wake up in spring 40 pounds or so heavier. Believe me, I've been there!
After all I've said, you can only do what you can do. But at the same time don't let troubles or worse, someone, else deter you from what's best for you.
Take care. I wish you the best. Most of all, whatever you do, don't leave us.

I use American cheese.....and not the "cheese food", but real cheese. Works very well. I like to snack on this, along w/ pepperoni chips.....don't even miss the potato chips and Cheetos. I have those at RM, so I don't miss them at all!
