Hi, I am new to the team. Where can I get a copy of this BFFM book.

Thanks... I actually just printed Chapter 12 out and saw the sample carb plan... I am going to structure my program like this... I usually eat a large salad and a protein for dinner, so I am good there.. so I guess like you said, I will just manipulate my early day carbs to see what works for me and just keep track of everything...

Thanks again... I hope that I have finally found what works for me, at least right now I am hopeful..

Sea ya later... ~ Dee ~

By the way, the BFFM book has a sample carb cycling plan near the middle/end of the book where the other food plans are... Let me know if you can't find it and I'll look it up when I get home.

Sounds like you already have a good handle on what you're doing and what works for your body. For me personally, I'm good with 2-3 servings of grains spread through the day and getting the rest of my carbs from fruit & veggies (mostly veggies). That helps keep things... er... 'regular' ;) and even if my carb count is higher, it doesn't have the same impact as the grains.

One thing you may want to try is to limit or cut out grains and starchy carbs (like potatoes) for your last meal & snack on your low days. Have an extra big salad, extra veggies, a protein shake, etc. instead, and see how that works.

Hi,I am new to carb cycling... I have recently found out that I am carb sensitive and need to reduce my carbs... I bought the BFFM manual (Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle) and like the program that Tom Venuto outlines in the manual... Like you LADYROSE, I have problems with the Atkins diet... for me it is not realistic and since the program I eventually follow will be something that I will be doing for life, I have to be very realistic about it, and I know that I could never survive (without bingeing) on the Atkins diet...

That being said, I have found through calculating my carbs from my nutritional trackers that I can lose weight when my carbs average about 120 a day... but without trying I also noticed that I kind of cycled my carbs, with higher and lower grams, from 75 - 128 grams... However, when my carbs crept up and started averaging about 140 - 160 for most days, my weight stalled.

I am so ready to lose this weight, I have about 35 pounds to lose, and being a breast cancer survivor, my oncologist recommended that I lose weight and that studies have shown that losing weight can help prevent a bc recurence, so needless to say, this has to happen, but I don't want to be in panic mode...

I am still studying the basics of this program and hope by next week I will have everything outlined...I am going grocery shopping this weekend so that I can be ready for Sunday...

I just ordered two, 2lb containers of protein powder, so I should be ok for awhile ...

If anyone has any tips and suggestions on how I can get started, I would appreciate the feedback..

I hope to get to know everyone here... Sorry for the long comment...

Welcome and yes! it's similar to Atkins, but way more healthy, encourages eating fiberous & a few starchy carbs, and you don't have to be "perfect" like the Atkins plan dictates (I have issues with their plan... sorry. :)

Think you will really like it and see amazing results!

Welcome to the team! Carb Cycling is similar to Atkins (I think) however, you get high carb days with cycling, which makes the diet much more versatile and "liveable" I think! You will learn a LOT from this team!

Enjoy!!!

Hello All!
I'm new to the team AND to carb cycling. I have a lot of "studying" to do. Will read all of the threads & formulate a plan. I have done MOSTLY Atkins diet on & off for the past 15 years!! I am not new to low carb, & it would be nice to mix it up a bit & see if it works for me! Looking forward to learning more & getting to know you all!
