    Just wondering---what is the CSIRO food plan?
  • pippo_11pippo_11 Posts: 30Member Member Posts: 30Member Member
    Can't wait to hear how it goes! I essentially follow the CSIRO food plan and you eat lots BUT only of the most beneficial foods. Hope it is a success for you.
    Maybe you could create another thread dedicated to the CSIRO diet? That would be interesting.

    The same thing happens to me when I eat all the goodies that are present when you get together with friends or family. I never feel good the next day. You would think that would make me think next time and not indulge. But it never seems to work that way. LOL The good news is I am still trying to work on it. Maybe some day it will make the difference.

    Good morning all!
    Good news about that knee, they can sure be temperamental, I take glucosamine and collagen for my joints, I think it works wonders...for me.
    About the CSIRO diet. Last year I followed this to the letter. I lost weight and was never hungry. I reached my goal in the 12 weeks and then I fell off the wagon. I couldn't get my mojo back. But the core principles stayed with me. I am back to following it but with my own recipes and a few adaptions.

    Today's poster is how I feel when I head to the nut jar (because I have eaten all the other goodies and won't buy any more but still have nuts! Sound familiar?) The dog represents my conscience...which I ignore!

    So true. I am 59 and have lost 50 pounds since August. I have 40 more to go. This is one of the hardest things I have every done in my life, but I am determined that this is the last time I have to worry about excess weight. I just finished my second week of weight training and one week of pilates. I'm done with the gym! Private or small group settings is the way I'm going. I also try to either walk or use the elliptical every day. I put exercise into my calendar to hold myself accountable.

    We can do this together!

    Wow, that is FANTASTIC!!! Congratulations, you deserve every gain. Do you think the exercise is your main weight ridding ace? Do you plan your own meals or do you follow a set plan? I am sure these are a couple of questions those in this group would ask you. What an inspiration you are.

    Second time around... I’m 65 now and recently retired so I can concentrate on my health for a change. Logging has previously been a challenge because eating out with clients was part of my job. Now I make logging a priority. The rest of my healthy life begins today!
  • getthebabebackgetthebabeback Posts: 45Member Member Posts: 45Member Member
    Sounds like second time around will be the last time time around! Go you!

    Ahhh, I think my weight is stuck in a lift (elevator)! It just keeps going up and down between the same two floors. So frustrating, so demoralising. :(

    Mine had been doing that for about a month, then a couple mornings back, I stepped on the scale and it was 1 1/2 lbs. less. Not getting all excited just yet over that because next time I step on, it'll probably go back up. :/ It can be frustrating but the scale is only one thing. It's more important not to let it get you down or give up. Stay patient!!

    Hi there, just started Keto life style Jan. 1st. Not a NY resolution, I was just ready to feel good. Was told I have hypothyroidism & I have more than enf inflammation in my body. I had been watching dr ken berry on YouTube and it all sounded good. So here I am. I’ve been trying to lose weight for many years. This time it’s for my health. I’ve lost 12 lbs and am not looking back.

    Good morning everyone. Thank you for your supportive replies and hi to our new face!
    It seems that in our age bracket, the weight reduction journey is so compounded by other physical issues brought on by ageing bodies and general wear and tear. Some days it seems as though we are really pushing it uphill and this group is really important as we understand each other's struggles as they are often our own as well. 12 lbs is wonderful, well done and wishing you the strength to keep it going!
    Have a strong and productive day, everyone.

    You are all very inspiring. You have wonderful attitudes. If we're all their for each other we can succeed at this battle to get healthy. At our ages we can't afford to put it off any longer. Let's all have a healthy day tomorrow. 😊
