Default "Reboot to lower carb after a few days high"

Hi all: Today I decided to get serious, since I have had approx. 170g carb per day for the past few days and I'm starting to get weird cravings to snack at night. Soooo, at 100g carb total today instead of 170+. This is about the lowest I will go for maintenance or I will end up losing more weight. Trying to keep it between 100-150g. And of course separate it from the higher fat meal...

Interesting quote from the latest Curves magazine: Good for planning when eating out - The average person makes three trips to the buffet. How can you prevent yourself from going up for seconds or gulp, fourths? Snag a table as far away from the spread as you can. Research conducted by Brian Wansink, PhD, director of the Food & Brand Lab at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, showed that for every 40 feet away from the buffet that people sit, they make one less trip.

Default OK Biiiig post here - 2 days worth

Obviously this was a 'Funday,' although not that fun I must admit - worries about my parents' health and future living arrangements - almost time to have that 'talk'... Those of you with older adult parents will know what I mean. I journaled a bit, cried a lot, talk deeply with a friend who has been & still is going through the Alzheimer's journey with a parent.

Liana - be nice to yourself while going through all this with your parents. So tough to deal with.

Thanks Ruth Ann: I needed the little virtual hug... Dad & I are off to town this morning, my biweekly weigh in (did OK on my scale - 132 lbs despite previous day's 'food events') and he is talking with the pharmacist and we are picking up grocery deals at a couple of stores. Our family tends to shop Euro style, going to market every couple of days to see what's on sale and buy for the next couple of days. I never pay full price for my meat or dairy because I buy whatever is on clearance (after they restock the coolers) and use it within a day or two anyhow.

Feeling a bit better today
Will post meals later as an edit probably.

Hi Canadjineh - You look great! I'm at the same starting weight and I'm just wondering how long you've been on maintenance? I followed IP and did well on it a year ago - I never made it to maintenance because I let life and stress get in the way. I ended up putting all the weight back on. I know that it works but I am so scared about maintenance and keeping it off. There are so many "nay-sayers" about the program so I'm really trying to stay focused. Any tips for me of what work/didn't work for you? Thanks for your help!

Thanks, Hi & welcome back!! Good for you for getting back to it! Maintenance for me is almost 3 months - I went for my biweekly measure & check in with my coach this morning and my measurements are staying the same (yaaaay) as is my weight. (I actually lost a bit of inches through the past 2 months like waist/belly/hips so I think I have changed up my proportion of body fat and toned up a teeny since starting maintenance.)

I am using myfitnesspal.com to track my calories/carb grams/fat grams/protein grams/fibre/sugar. I log in everyday and fill it out faithfully and you might be surprised by what you find out about some of your favorite foods, etc. I am working on keeping my carb grams between 100-150/day. I know for some on maintenance, this is too high and they gain weight but so far it is working well for my body. I don't actually count calories and just watch my other levels for interest sake - the proportion of carb & fat grams are what I am really looking for.

My Fitness Pal also helps me keep track of my fat to carb ratio at both the lunch & dinner meals. This is the WHOLE THING to learn about maintenance in IP - separate the two kinds of meals - one lower fat and one lower carb at a ratio of approx. 1:3 or 1:4 if you can. AND be aware of what real portion sizes are... weigh & measure them - don't eyeball (especially at first) if you are used to North American sized portions. "Funday" once a week only and P1 the day after, easy as that. Get back to whatever is fun exercise for you and do it regularly.

On this forum Maile has been in maintenance for over 2 years and Ruth Ann has just joined us in maint. not too long ago. Along with me, they tend to post the most in the maintenance threads. Join us here & on daily chat and ask questions, there are lots of other gals with major experience too who can help. Remember that losing the weight on IP is just part of the 'contract with your body'... then you get the next 'contract' - treating your body right and fuelling it properly for the rest of your life. It never has to end - it's not a diet as such, it's a healthy eating plan. (and it's not so hard once you have retrained yourself to eat right. Although you are always aware - it doesn't take over your life)

Thank you so much for sharing all of that. It seems a bit complicated but I'm sure you get used to it. When you refer to "phase 1" the day after fun day - do you still use the IP products or do you mean stick to the same marcronutrients/calories? Thanks again. I will be sure to continue to watch what you and the other maintainers do to remain successful Have a great day!

I use alternatives like vegan protein shakes in place of IP packets for my "after funday." I tend to get a lot of dairy which isn't the best for my tummy so I don't want to add more whey protein, but some of the other gals just do the very lo carb 2c veggies at lunch and 2c veggies at dinner along with regular P1 lo cal&fat protein choices. Some still really like the IP packets and continue to use them. Your choice as long as you keep the insulin from going up on the day after.

It seems complicated at first and I admit, I am a 'details' person and like minutiae so I probably am more detailed than I really need to be. I am still fairly new at this though, so a little less intuitive than Maile who has got this down to a science. (I also have to be gluten free which can also complicate matters as I can't just have the lowest carb breads or cereals - in fact mine tend to be very high in starch carbs so I eat less of them). I also really like cooking and interesting recipes, so there is quite a long list of foods in my diary and I eat a large variety of meals - some people here like to have the same thing for breakfast every day, for instance - NOT ME!!

Hope you find the threads & posters on here helpful...

Liana
