I started doing CALP, on Monday...after a few OP (stall frustration) days that got me up to 205.
Now I am eating 200 calories more, and the weight is finally coming off...
This is so cool...more food, no cravings, and...Onderland at last !:hat:

Wahoo!! Congratulations! I've been waiting for you to join us. ;) What is it about stalling at 200 I'd like to know?
I second the "what's CALP" question.

Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program (CALP)
I googled it!

Lynn that is short for Carbohydrate Addict's Lifetime Program...not extremely low carb, I'm even having grains, fruit, and dessert in a planned way.It is great if you are insulin resistant like me.
beerab...You go girl !

I looked up CALP and omg I swear I've been doing something like this all along- 2 low carb meals a day and one meal with a bit of carbs in it. I just called it my modified south beach diet! lol.
I'm also insulin resistant and KNOW I was addicted to carbs.

most awesome! wonderful news that more food actually helps weight loss!
04-08-2010, 01:41 AM
Born to fly, I don't think that is what counts with me, so much as WHERE the calories are coming from. Yes I'm getting 200 calories more per day, but I believe the reason this works is that my blood sugar is now stable. Insulin resistance causes your body to store fat, so, reducing carbs should help to reverse that. Just a hunch, you know...and everyone is different, but I don't think that eating more = weight loss.
