    Yaaaaaay, Jillybean!!!!! You will stabilize, then drop, when you follow the PCDS guidelines...which get easier with time! You MAY even continue to drop in the next couple days. That would mean your body is "calming down" and is getting back to its LIW. Then, when you're about a lb below LIW, or at LIW, you can start increasing carbs and calories....so, prepare to get even closer to your LIW!! I replied to your question about if avocados and egg yolks are allowed during the Post-Correction Day Strategy on my blog, (they're not a good idea) and suggested baked chicken skin all by itself -- I like mine with sea salt, because it's low in sodium, yay...and some cayenne pepper! -- I call these "chicken chips". It's a cheap way of introducing more fat, without protein attached to it, or carbs attached to the fat source too.

    Keep us updated! And congrats again on your 2.2 pound loss with your Chicken Thigh Day!!!!! Yaaaaayyyyy!!

    AW: The Ultimate P3 Correction Day: I Lost 2.6 lbs on a Chicken Thigh Day!!!!!!!!!!

    Just read ur blog. Interesting.
    Ve a cold at the moment do can't really judge anything. My weight fluctuated like crazy the past couple of days. Ll b visiting friends this WE. Will c how my weight looks like on mo. If still so high I ll try ur method, although it feels strange to give up veggies. Think I ll use wings though instead of thighs (actually they r my favourite part of the chicken, but since I can't get them separately here....). Figured I could eat 11 wings or so to ve the same cal range. It d be 62% fat & 48 protein though.
    Also tried calculating my cal requirements with my net diary. It says 1950 for sedentary?!? That's really a lot! I never eat that much.
    Anyway, ll ve to wait till mo & c. Thanx for sharing all of that.

    Hi Pensee!!

    FYI: the calculator you use for the first few days of the PCDS is the one specified in the first part of the guide/post on PCDS. Chapter 1 I believe. Or, you could just find the "Reader's Digest" post I made, also on my blog. The MyNetDiary calculator uses the American Cancer Society calculator. And that is the second calculator of two calculators we use in the PCDS. Also: the second calculator uses a different setting...but don't worry about that until later. Check out the "Reader's Digest Version" post and you'll be all good!

    Hi Melanie!!

    Actually, the PCDS (Post-Correction Day Strategy) is not high protein; it's high fat!!

    Calories from cooked fat grams are higher than calories from cooked protein grams that are higher than cooked carb grams (and there are NO CARBS WHATSOEVER eaten the first 2 days).

    And the answer to if you can do this after a correction day, CTD or whatever it may be: YES!!!! You can also do the PCDS if you didn't recently do a CD, and you should still see great results. This is because the PCDS is a "Calming Down" strategy, to kick it out of a negative cycle....no matter where it was in that cycle. Whether it was on the upswing or downswing (gaining or losing).

    Also: when trying to eat during those first two days of the PCDS, and thinking of how much protein to consume, the number of actual grams (this time it IS just the cooked grams themselves, not the calories from cooked grams)...multiply your weight by 120. Or, divide your weight by 5, multiply it by 6. Whichever approach you use to get there, the number you arrive at is your limit of cooked protein grams.

    Again, can't stress this enough: you need a tracker to get a grip on all this stuff. It'll make your head hurt less to have one, I swear! MyNetDiary.com is the one I use; I use their iPhone app version. Exceptionally accurate!!!! It's a lifesaver.

    The protein limit is covered in my blog too; just made a new and separate post for it this morning! And as always, PM me for immediate questions...or just post them here. I check this thread often.

    Hi Melanie!

    If I had a choice, I would not do two correction days in a row *unless* I had a gain after a correction day. And since I know holding a loss after a correction day works (the Post-Correction Day Strategy, PCDS for short) I feel confident in recommending you do the PCDS. Now, don't get these things mixed up; a Chicken Thigh Day (a 'CTD') is a correction day (a 'CD'), and the Post-Correction Day Strategy can be used after ANY correction day to hold the loss, and allow the body to relax/break out of a starvation mode cycle (where a series of gains happen).

    The PCDS is what I've been posting about in my blog. Remember: the Chicken Thigh Day is the correction day, and the Post-Correction Day Strategy (the 'PCDS') is what happens AFTER that.

    Read up on what to eat there. Read the "Reader's Digest Version" entry of the first two days of the PCDS to get a feel for how the first two days (heads up: no carbs, no processed foods, no salt, no grains, no veggies...all poultry, all meat, and fish. And avoid pork too, due to sodium and whatnot).

    I'm still addding to the list of foods to eat. But for now, if it isn't on the list, DO NOT assume you can eat it. This is ONLY for 2 days; don't try to go beyond what I've listed. Don't get creative. You did it with the foods Simeons laid out in P2, right? For 40 injections, which is about 7 weeks, right? Surely you can do this restricted food list for TWO DAYS! I have faith in you, Mel! And, same goes for other folks; what I've listed is very do-able.

    Go to my blog, and read thru the food there listed on the "Reader's Digest" post for the first 2 days of the PCDS. And before eating anything not mentioned there, assume if it isn't specified there, it isn't allowed. Then...PM me to confirm. Always err on the side of caution.

    Wow, gonnaloseit you are very informative! I started reading this thread before lunch time. I am doing a steak day today since I need it. I went out and bought steaks during lunch and also bought chicken thighs. I am doing the steak day tonight (I'm already starving!!). I saw that you suggested to Melanie to not do the CTD right away. When do you suggest to do it?

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi simplyj! Thanks for the compliment, that's very nice of you to say!

    I believe doing a Chicken Thigh Day, because it's a correction day, should only be done if you wake up after a correction day has happened, and you've gained weight, or not lost anything at all. Basically, if your correction day -- whatever the kind of correction day you did -- failed. In that case, then, I'd say two correction days in a row are needed. Though the Chicken Thigh Day (CTD) is less stressful on the body, in my opinion, because you can eat all day long. And you eat enough calories to keep you out of starvation mode, while getting a lower amount of calories that will help you lose, and getting enough protein and fat to keep you going. I wish I could take credit for inventing the idea; I just found a way to use it effectively.

    So, if you're at LIW/LDW, and you want to keep it, go to my blog and read about the Post-Correction Day Strategy (PCDS) to hold a correction day's loss (Steak Day, Chicken Thigh Day, etc. -- doesn't matter what kind of CD it is you did). First two days are no-carb days (eat all one-ingredient meats/poultry/fish, but NOT pork; nothing processed, et cetera), then you slooowwwlllyyy work in carbs after that. It's a temporary vacation for carbs, as they'll be back after the first two days. There's two calculators used; first one is for the days when you're slowwwlly re-introducing carbs, second one is for when your body tells you it's back at its LIW/stabilized. When that happens, you can start increasing carbs and calories. There's a schedule of carb level, which you follow until your body tells you it is ready to increase carbs and calories. Whatever amount of carbs you're at at that point, you'll double that, and whatever the difference is in carb amounts between where you are and the double amount of where you are....you'll increase your carbs eaten by 20% of that carb difference each day, until you arrive at your doubled carb amount. In other words: say I was up to 8% carbs when my body told me it was time to increase carbs. I double that number, and that means 16% carbs is where I'll be at in 5 days. There's 8% difference between the level you were at, and where you needed to be; divvied up that's 1.6% of carbs a day. It's a weird amount, and above 1.5, so I would round that up to 2% carb increase each day. As for calories: I'll use me as an example. The difference between my calorie limit when I was slowly re-introducing calories and my ideal calorie limit is about 515 calories. That works out to 103 calories to increase each day, as 515 divided by 5 is 103. So each day, I'm increasing by 20% for both carbs and calories. It's a lot of math, but you know what helps? My TRACKER! I could NOT have done this without it!!! I use http://www.mynetdiary.com <--I use the iPhone version. It's invaluable.

    I write a lot, probably because I think a lot, and research a lot, and have a LOT of info rattling around in my brain. I've tried to make this as simple as possible, but I understand if it's overwhelming for some folks. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Or, as most of my info on this PCDS and the CTD is on my blog, I welcome you to read through it. Just click the number of blog entries in my avatar, and you'll get there. The Post-Correction Day Strategy (PCDS) is listed as a "guide" with chapters and so forth. For a "reader's digest" version of it, I also started a thread about the first two days of the PCDS. Feel free to take a look there and see what's laid out. It's a lot of info, but it's the only way I've ever stabilized. Last round, I tried a few things, and they didn't work -- Steak Days in particular! But this time, I did more research, read more threads, and looked at more studies on http://www.pubmed.gov ...and googled the HECK out of terms people used to describe correction days, how to do them, what worked and what didn't...and their failure/success on holding a correction day's loss.

    Again, if any of this is a lot more info than you expected to hear, PM me with more specific questions. But read thru my blog first; it will likely have the answer to any of your questions in there. And....congrats on your weightloss! I just saw your BEAUTIFUL tracker....wow! Nice butterfly too!

    It's all good! And if you have any questions, PM me -- it'll get to me quicker than a blog comment will.

    FYI: you can use the PCDS, even if it's not the immediate day after a gain, and also you could use it if you're gaining and gaining and it doesn't seem like you'll see your LIW/LDW ever again. This approach calms the body down, and gets it out of that yo-yo dieting mode (starvation mode); when you gain after losing, that's a sign you're in starvation mode, imho. And that signal by your body is what you should be aware of; if it's telling you it's stuck in that mode, kick it out of that mode, then! Give it a reason to calm down.

    Have a great weekend, Pensee!
