My Current Experiences With The Carbohydrate Addicts Lifespan Program (CALP)

I have been writing a journal about my experiences with CALP and decided to put it in online "book" form. I will be writing a new chapter at least once a month and it will include my thoughts as well as my current stats.

If you are reading my blog and think this way of eating could be beneficial to you, read the book that got me started. It is called The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program and was written by Dr. Richard F. Heller and Dr. Rachael F. Heller. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

The Little Pair of Jeans are Mine!

I was working on the laundry this afternoon when I realized that the little pair of jeans I was folding, were mine! I am the mother of three adult children, two of them girls, and I have been folding little jeans for the last twenty six years even though they did not belong to me.

I am so happy that I found an eating and exercise program that works this well for me!

Results of My Seventh Month on CALP

October 3rd was weigh in and measurement day but I postponed it until October 4th. I really enjoy getting my results once a month but had to be somewhere at a certain time and did not have enough time to get it done.

I am very pleased with my results and absolutely love CALP for allowing me to regain complete control over when and how I eat. The other day my Dad actually commented on my weight loss and that had me feeling pretty good about myself.

Every time my husband hugs me, which is constantly, he tells me how much I am shrinking and how beautiful I am. He has always been loving and affectionate and continues to do a wonderful job of building my confidence. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

The Incredible Shrinking Woman

I'm watching my wife (LowCarbForLife) shrink before my eyes. Her body is being transformed by her dedication to the CAD/CALP lifestyle and her surprising (to me, anyway) enthusiasm for regular aerobic and weight training exercises.

I know she can't really see it, and we didn't take a 'before' picture (she's too modest for that), so we don't have an objective, visual way to compare her current shape to what it was when she started only a few months ago. But I can see the changes every week, and I can feel them as well -- when I put my arms around her, she feels like a different person, except that I remember that this is how it felt a long time ago... (yes, I remember.) 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.

Children, Buffets, and Weight Gain

I had my third and last child when I was 30 years old. My oldest daughter was 5 years old, my second daughter was 14-1/2 months old, and my youngest son was born two months before my 31st birthday. After the birth of my third child I attempted to lose weight again. The only way I knew how to do it was to eat low fat, so I did. I had the same problem with low fat dieting as I did before and I was always hungry. I stuck to the plan long enough to lose some weight but since it was too difficult for me to do long term, I began the yo-yo dieting again. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »
