I started with the ELOO I had in the cupboard, and it had a slightly rancid taste that turned me off.  I don't think it was old, it was just the flavor.  I've switched to Canola and have found it much more palatable (sp?)....pretty tasteless.

I posted about the diet over at http://www.SparkPeople.com and you would of thought I joined a cult!  :lol: I'll post again today... with my weight loss results.

If you've got a link to where you posted, I'd love to read the comments and such.

May 21: 235 lb., +2 lb from 3 days ago, -6 lb since April 30, 21 days ago.

(Lack of) Weight Loss: I notice my appetite is diminished, but it's not showing up in the weight loss for the last few days. I'm not particularly concerned about my lack of weight loss in the past week. I feel like I must be losing and it will show up at some point. Then I can tell people!

Junk Food: I went to a family event this weekend. Before our main meal we had big bowls of chips, salsa, and dip. Before SLD I would feast on these chips, then eat the main meal. This time I had a few chips, but stopped because I wanted to wait for the main meal. It was easy to wait.

Canola Oil: I prefer this to the olive oil. It has the added advantage of being only a fraction of the price of ELOO. I also just found out that the term 'canola' was popularized only around 20 years ago.

Hey Rich, it sounds like you are losing almost exaclty like you should.  1-2 lbs a week is considered a healthy pace by most medical professionals.  If you have lost 6 lbs in 21 days you are right on target.  Congratulations!

May 23: 235 lb., unchanged from 2 days ago, -6 lb since April 30, 23 days ago.

(Lack of) Weight Loss: continues. I haven't lost anything in the last week. I have no plans to stop taking the oil, however. I take 2.5 Tbsp (300 cal) per day. I've stopped taking the sugar water. If I don't lose anything in the next week I may go back to some oil and some sugar.

May 24: 233 lb., -2 lb. from one day ago, -8 lb since April 30, 24 days ago.

Weight Loss resumes after a week long pause.

Bad Idea of the Day: Each day I take a vitamin pill, a (coated) baby aspirin, and two fish oil capsules. I figured I'd take them using my morning 1.5 Tbsp of oil instead of a gulp of water. Ugh, I was totally grossed out. Back to water for the pills.

I hit a steady stream of plateaus and break throughs in the past six months.  I eventually just got used to it, though it was strange (usually a plateau is a signal that a diet is about to fail, on shangri-la it is a signal my body is getting ready for the next batch of weight loss).

Hey, Stephen M., I didn't want to muck up the FAQ child board with replies, but wanted to let you know that I found your post on cycles and plateaus very, very helpful.  Thanks a lot for that.  Recommended reading for everyone here!

May 29: 234 lb., +1 lb. from 5 days ago, -7 lb. since April 30, 29 days ago.

Signal to noise: I weighed in this morning at 237 lb. But due to a lazy holiday, I had a chance to hop on the scale several more times. Just a couple of hours later I was 234 lb. I'm convinced that my weight varies by 3-4 lbs. during the day. I suspect this is the reason for some plateaus. I'm measuring my weight every day, but not posting here every day.

Not working: I suspect many frequent dieters associate the feeling of hunger as a sign of losing weight. It's difficult to get your mind around the idea that you can lose weight even though you feel satisfied after eating. On Saturday I had a nice breakfast: two eggs, an English muffin, and a strip of bacon. I felt as though I overate. But when I was thinking back, I realized that I hadn't really overeaten. That is the unusual part of losing weight this way.

I'm glad it was useful for you.  I'm all for comments and replies on my comments at least. ;)

May 30: 233 lb., -1 lb. from 1 day ago, -8 lb. since April 30 (30 days ago)

Holiday Weekend: I've maintained my weight despite consuming significantly more alcohol than usual and eating such health foods as hamburgers, hot dogs, potato chips, and so on. I especially ate a lot on Sunday. On Monday, by contrast, I had just one large meal and a couple of snacks. I feel like my body is just not allowing me to overeat substantially. Amazing.

Good to hear it is working for you.

Re: Rich's progress down 11 lb. in 32 days

June 1: 230 lb. -3 lb. from 2 days ago, -11 lb. from April 30 (32 days ago).

Weight Loss Phases: This morning I thought I looked thinner in the mirror. For me there are three phases to any weight loss: (1) seeing the loss on the scale, (2) feeling my clothes becoming looser, and (3) seeing myself becoming thinner in the mirror.

Plateau: I had thought I plateaued over the past couple of weeks, but today's weight is the lowest since I started the SLD plan. When I plot my daily weight measurements, I see a noisy signal, but one clearly trending down. I think 11 lb. in 4.5 weeks is not bad. I wouldn't mind if the weight loss slows to more like 1-2 lb. per week.

June 5: 233 lb. +3 lb. from 2 days ago, -8 lb. from April 30 (36 days ago).

Yeah, I'm technically up 3 pounds. I'm not bothered by this, for two reasons:

1. I redid my spreadsheet to graph the 7-day moving average of my weight. That graph shows a slow but steady decline for the past two weeks. Daily measurements are essentially compared to the measurement for a week earlier.

2. I can see a difference in my weight in the mirror.

1300 Readers: About 1300 people have read these posts about my progress. I am astounded by this. I hope I have said something that made your visit worthwhile.

Shot glass: I bought a measuring shot glasses at Linens and Things for about a buck each. These have really made it easy to measure the oil. I just pour the desired amount into the shot glass and toss it back. Caution: Some of the shot glasses at Linens and Things had the printing clearly misaligned. Make sure the measurements are consistent: 1 tbsp = 1/2 oz = 3 tsp.
