2008 - CALP Low Carb Diet Journal

LowCarbForLife's picture

I have been keeping a personal journal since I began The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program on March 3, 2008.

I have been successful in my attempt to follow this way of eating so I have decided to share my journey with others. I am not proud of the way I have looked for the last twenty five years and it was finally time for me to do something about it. I was three months shy of my forty ninth birthday when I decided to give this way of eating another try. I had tried CALP ten years earlier and found it to be a very easy program for me to follow.

The most important thing I do while following the program is to keep my food balanced. I only eat two meals a day even though the program allows me to eat up to four times every day. The program does not force me to eat breakfast which works well for me since I am never hungry in the mornings. I eat until I am satisfied and the combination of foods that I am eating seem to hold me over until my next meal.

I will be writing a daily entry that will include my menu and exercises from the previous day!

About me

I'm Teri and I am 54 years old. I have been fighting my weight since I was fourteen, dieting my way all the way up to 236 lbs. I started my weight loss program on March 3, 2008, and at that time I was unable to get into the largest pair of jeans I owned, size 18W. I have lost close to 100 pounds, and I now wear a size 4 jeans. My diet and exercise program have me feeling better than I could have ever imagined and I did it without starving or depriving myself in any way.

I am getting myself into better shape and my goal of becoming fit and healthy is getting closer every day.
