New Way of Thinking

I began The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program (CALP) again on March 8, 2008. I am determined that it will be the last time I will ever restart this program, since I don't intend to ever stop. I understand that I am a carbohydrate addict and can not eat the way other people do, since I am unable to control myself when I try. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

Obsession Over Weight Leads To A Setback

I was 40 years old when I first picked up the book and purchased my copy of The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program (CALP). Over the years I gained more than I lost and my yo-yo dieting caused my weight to soar to a high of 236 lbs. When I started reading the book, I just knew they were talking about me. I was shocked to hear that there were people exactly like me that could not control what they were eating. I knew better than to eat ice cream every night, but I was unable to control myself when it came time to leave it alone. I knew better than to grab a candy bar in the afternoon, but sometimes I did it anyway. I knew that I was gaining weight and my clothes were getting tight, but the only thing that mattered to me was the satisfaction of eating chocolate.

How A Longtime Yo-Yo Dieter Found Low Carb Dieting

The pages outlined in this book tell the story of how LowCarbForLife found low-carb dieting, and how it changed her life. The story spans over 30 years and you might find it interesting to see how a person makes the transition from yo-yo low-fat starvation dieter to sustained success using a low-carb diet.

I've Only Just Begun (Again)

I began the Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program, also known as CALP, on March 3, 2008. I read the book several years ago and was successful in losing about 50 lbs. the first time I tried it. I find it an easy program to follow and failed the first time because I was looking for a quick fix to my weight problem. I weighed myself everyday and when I did not see the scale move, I decided to change to Atkins. I believe I was able to get the scale to drop a few pounds but was unable to continue the Atkins Diet because I was missing the foods I could not live without.

I re-read the book in March and was ready to begin CALP for the second time. I had not weighed myself in a couple of years and chose not to get on a scale because I did not want to become obsessed with it. I took my measurements five days after I began CALP so I would have some sort of record to track my progress. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »
