2009 - CALP Low Carb Diet Journal

LowCarbForLife's picture

I have been following The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program for the last nine months now. It is a really great program for me because I get to decide what foods I want to eat. I am eating healthier since I eat a serving of vegetables with every meal and I also have a salad every day. I still get to enjoy my carbohydrate of choice on a daily basis, so I never feel deprived.

My program is more than an eating program for me. The CALP book suggests adding options to their program and I began including exercise as one of those options eight and a half months ago. I established a habit that I was able to easily resume after I recovered from having varicose vein surgery on one of my legs.

I have been using this journal to keep my menu and exercises updated on a regular basis and since I intend on following my program, it is time to begin a brand new year.

My entries will continue to 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.
