Question Thanks and help!

Thank you for the clear summization of the diet. I just started, and Ihave spent the last 3 days trying to contact SOMEONE who knows what they are doing! You sound lilke the perfect person. Since I also am new to the site and do not know how to use it, I am having to post this to you. I am not sure if I have done the right thing. I would appreciate an email from you since I cannot email you.

Welcome to CAD! Sorry I can't post my email for you. That is not allowed here. You also cannot PM (Private Message) me as you do not have over 25 posts to your credit.

Nevertheless, I am happy to answer any questions you might have about CAD in this forum. You can post your questions here in the CAD/CALP forum and I and others will answer them.

Good luck with the program.

Thanks for the info - I have to learn the rules as well as figure out how to use this site.

Are you sure you want to get in to this?

Okay, the first thing I would like to know is can I eat at any time I want, or only at meals? What about after supper? I mean no-carb, of course. I do not remember from reading the book - I was so excited about the diet, I went through it a bit quick. I have just been a grazer for so long, and I sometimes just "need" to eat. I am very weak!

Secondly, can you suggest anything else I can drink but water. I am soooo sick of it, and there is nothing else on the list. and I am only on day 4!

The good news is that I am on day 4. I have been trying for 2 weeks to get past day 1, and I finally decided to make Feb 1st my definative start date, and so far so good. But so far! I read Don Elliot's inspiring story, and wish I had the strength to do what he did.

You can eat no more than 4 times total a day. No gum, no mints.
The four times a day can be 2 CMs, 1 CS, and 1RM. While you cannot eat more meals than that, you can eat fewer. You must drink coffee within 15 minutes, otherwise your body thinks it's a meal and it counts as one. Your meals can be any time of the day you want. Try not to eat too late at night. Sorry water is best. You can have up to two diet sodas a day but only with a meal. If they start cravings cut them out or only have them with your RM.

Most CAs (carbohydrate addicts) often former grazers find they are just not hungry more than 2-3 times a day on CAD. If you get hungry more often, examine the foods you are eating. Only eat the foods on the CAD list. If you can't find the food on the list. Do not eat it!!!

Good Luck! Congratulations on getting to day 4. That's usually when the cravings and headaches subside.

I read in the book about CA Diet Ceters, and CAD counsellors. But I cannot find where or who. Have you any leads?

I only know of the center in New York. If you visit the CAD website you might find more information.

Sorry. I don't. I had a very hard time trying to contact with anyone with information on that website. There seems to be no way to contact them or ask questions. I know how frustrating it is.

Read this thread from the begining. Then read "Cheat Sheets", then "Carb Allergy vs Carb Addication".
