I was hoping to get support here for Carb Nite Solution program. I have pdf version of it. I started my own group because I could find one on here.

I'm on day 6 of my first cycle, so I haven't had my first carb nite yet. I've been having a lot of luck getting lean with intermittent fasting, and I buy interesting diet concept books as a kind of research project.

What about carb backloading? I was curious, but not curious enough to shell out that much money without knowing more about what I was getting. It looks like a continual daily cycle with carbs eaten in the evening.

I looked at the forum but kind of got turned off by the macho posturing.

not daily, once a week. the idea is to reset your hormones so your body doesn't get efficient which it tends to do.
I bought the book used on Amazon for$20 but if you wait a bit he's about to release a revised edition with his latest findings, the 2005 original release is a bit outdated. lots of new clarifications on the new revision.

I am not doing wellon this diet. I may have to rethink my strategy. The carb cravings are getting the best of me and the extreme carb reduction (or withdrawal?) is causing headaches and binging. I have been interested in intermittent fasting for a while. Yes the macho posturing is a bit much for me. I think that carb nite is just a form of carb switching. I am going to research more and maybe find something that works better for me.

you might want to try Nate Miyaki's intermittent feast it's less carb restricted and more about timing

It takes time to adapt to a very low carb diet, which is why 9 days have been given to it in the first cycle. I've done low carb more on than off for a long time, so I never get carb flu. I am fat-adapted.

I am new to Carb Nite Solution, but not at all new to LC/VLC diets.

I am hoping that Carb Nite is the "answer" to the issue I have had which is, namely, sticking with the program long-term.

I heartily believe that VLC is a healthy way to eat, but cannot imagine saying "no thank you" to every carb for, like, EVER, especially since I have long since stopped getting any meaningful results from my VLC lifestyle (we're talking THREE MONTHS of VLC with NO noticeable change Rolling Eyes )

Hopefully, CNS will allow me to say "yes please" often enough to make VLC easier to deal with, and maybe, just maybe, I will start to look better, as well.

I think the problem with VLC is like the problem with any program where you eat the same calories and macros every day: eventually your body grows to expect it. Your body has no intention of losing that fat, and can adjust down your metabolism and make other, hormonal changes to keep you from losing the weight.

Programs that incorporate intermittent fasting and days of varying calorie totals and macros can keep that from happening.
