Good evening everyone. I haven't posted in a few days but I have been reading. I feel bad sometms tha I don't come on here and address everyone specifcally but I just don't get on the computer much at al. I'm usually on my phone and its a pain to post too much. I do read everything tho andjust love al of you guys. This board is so supportive and I'm loving seeing so many new people.

My weekend was crazy. I workout a lot on the weekends so I don't do any DDs on weekends. My DDs are mon wed and fri. By mon I am ready for a DD. I drank on sat night and haven't done that in forever and boy did it affect my weight. I was up about 7lbs this morning! I know I'm retaining water like crazy and hopefully it won't last long. I will not be drinking again. I also ate 2 donuts Sunday morning after my drinking sat night. What the hell is up with me. I never eat donuts. I'm thinking the liquor caused some cravings or something. I don't know. Its a new week and I'm gonna look forward not backward but no more liquor!

Momof3 I feel for you. I had 3 teens that areout of the house now, 1 teen of my own left and my boyfriends has a teen. They are a mess. Mine always did their own laundry. Once they got big enough to learn to do it and to reach theknobs they were doing it. You have gotten some great advise. You are doing way to much for your teens. My motto was always eat what I fix or don't eat. They had to do chores to get some extra money and if they blew it that was on them. You may need to mae them start breaking away. They have to learn responsibilty and sometimes its the hard way. I feel for you and will be praying for you. They will learn.

Ah... I think I got Aruba and Acapulco crossed in my mind. I've looked and looked, but I don't come up with anything that is remotely *almost as cheap as staying home*.. so I don't know how you do it.

I know you'll have a wonderful time with your Mom on the Aruba trip. I've always heard it is a beautiful island. A buddy of DH's goes down twice a year.

Just went out for Sushi today for the first time in ages and I had to laugh because I didn't feel guilty about eating the carbs in the meal! I JUST LOVE JUDDD!
Glad you're feeling better, and YES.. isn't JUDDD great?!!! It's just amazing to me what all I can enjoy for my meals and remain at my weight. I tell ya'.. this makes your body work like it was designed to work! The longer I stay on the plan, the better I feel and the better my body runs!

I am combining LC, IF, and JUDDD. I was doing LC and IF before, but the JUDDD makes sure I don't pig out when I break the fast. It also kicks it up a notch since I was fasting 2 days a week, and now I'll be fasting 3 days a week along with my DDs.

Right now I'm feeling alright, it just feels like another fasting day to me so far. It'll be interesting to see how I'm feeling once I hit my 500cal limit. I think before, I was eating closer to 1000 cals on the days I broke my fast. I really hope this helps to get the scale moving!
First of all, I want to welcome you here and tell you how happy I am that you've joined us. This is a great and supportive and encouraging forum!

Secondly, I don't know if I'm understanding you correctly or not... You know, the 500 calorie days ARE the *fast* on JUDDD. The other days are the higher calorie days, either Up Days or Medium Days.

Are you holding to 500 calorie days AND doing fasting on other days besides? If so, that wouldn't remotely be JUDDD. Could you explain what you are doing just a little bit more for us?

I sounds like you are more than able to do the JUDDD Down Days from previous ways of eating that you are familiar with.

It sure sounds like you are off to a wonderful start! Happy JUDDDing to you, and I think you'll be wonderfully successful! (And baked chicken skins sounds delicious. I always like to sneak some of the browned and crispy skin from a roasted chicken or turkey.)

And we were just talking about how having a few drinks seems to make people gain several pounds - way more than those calories should account for - and it doesn't just flush out in another day either! Very interesting and pretty sad occurrence. Bummer! (And I could skip the drinks pretty easily, but I might help myself to the donuts.)

SoHappy, what I mean by a fast is that I drink only water for 24hours, so when I'm doing a DD, I wait until my 24hours is up (usually around 6pm), and eat my 500cals at once, rather than spread out through the day. Did that make any more sense? On UDs, I eat as much as I feel I need, and stop eating around 6pm to start the 24hour water fast.

OK, now I understand. That makes perfect sense, and there are others who spend their Down Days fasting until their evening meal, and then eat their entire allotment of DD calories at that evening meal. And then the next day is their Up Day, and they enjoy a nice breakfast and go on from there.

I can see how you would end an UD after an early evening meal, and then fast except for water until the following evening, when you would break that DD fast at the evening mealtime once again.

What number of calories is your goal and calorie ceiling on your Up Days?

Sounds like you're already pretty used to the fasting.

Yes, that's it exactly. I don't always explain myself very well lol....

Honestly, I haven't checked my "normal eating" calorie level in a while, but my guess is probably around 2000cals. I think i'll shoot for around 1700-1800 on my UDs. The calculator says that my ceiling would be about 2225cals, but I know that's not true. I used to wear a BodyBugg, which told me exactly how many calories I burned per minute based off of body temp, heart rate, etc. and on a lazy day I burn 1900. On an active day (exercise included) I'd get up to around 2200. So, knowing that I have a slower metabolism, I think 2000 should be the most I eat in a day.

Sounds like a good plan.

That BodyBugg sounds like an amazing little piece of equipment. I'll have to read up on them and what all they can do.

Glad today is over!

I clocked in at 600 calories, think I did pretty well. Not too much hunger.

Looking forward to yogurt tomorrow...my carbfest this weekend has really done a candida-number on my tummy.

You had a good day. Good for you.

I love yogurt too, so may have to go buy some myself tomorrow. I had my carbfest today, but I never seem to have any adverse reaction. Hope the yogurt will make your tummy feel better.

Hey guys I have a question and since your all already here lol I figured id ask as opposed to making a whole thread. I have seen a few of you say induction. Does this mean it is not safe to continue to cycle between calories with a dd as low as 500? I have 90 more lbs to go

Pat - the traveling is kinda complicated, and it only works due to the timeshares we own. We get so much mileage out of them. Too much, in fact - I have a bunch of "bonus" weeks that will most likely expire since I simply don't have the time to use them. We can travel very very inexpensively with those. For Aruba, the accommodations in a 2-br condo are costing me a grand total of $308 because of the bonus weeks, and for this trip the airfare is free because of my credit card miles. We will go out to dinner a couple of times while there, but I'd do that at home anyway. This trip will pretty much wipe out my credit card miles, so the next trips will either be driveable or I'll have to bite the bullet and pay (ack!) but...I do love to travel and want to take advantage of it when I can. And my mom just loves to go places. She's almost 80 years old, and I'm so happy I still have her with me and that she's so fit and active, so I want to travel with her as much as possible.

I don't buy new clothes for my trips. I don't shop on vacation, and don't buy souvenirs or go out to eat at expensive places. I use Entertainment book coupons and Restaurant.com and other local BOGO offers for dining choices when traveling - I even got a great BOGO for Texas de Brazil in Aruba! The closer I keep my expenses to normal, the more trips I can afford to take.

And, I'm a total penny pincher at all times, to save up for my next trip.

I don't think any of it would be possible, without the internet. And I probably wouldn't have found JUDDD either!

firefighterlady and Linda - I can't say for sure, but my understanding of "induction" on JUDDD is the initial 2-week period where he recommends you kinda ease yourself into the program using shakes and bars to ensure you're sticking to the right calorie count on DDs. I never did that myself - I like shakes that I make myself, not the prepackaged kind, and bars never satisfy me.

I don't see any reason why you can't follow the 500-calorie level on DDs forever!

Edited to add: Your recommended DD level could actually be lower than 500 cals, or higher. And it does fluctuate as your weight changes, according to the JUDDD site. I personally picked 500 calories as my do-able level and have no interest in doing lower DDs but might flirt with higher DDs ala Linda.

There is no reason not to go lower than 500 calories on the down days. This plan grew
out of work with alternet day fasting when it was found that you get the same health
benifits with a DD as a total fasting day and it was a lot easier to stick to.

Weigh in day for me. 160.5. That means in the two weeks since I started I lost 8.5 pounds. Only 16 more to go!

Looking back, most of my DD's had 500-600 calories. My UP days ranged from 1199 calories to 1800. My actual numbers I am supposed to do is 500/1700. I find I am not really getting overly hungry. It feels great not to have that "stuffed" feeling so much anymore.

DD's aren't too bad. It helps when I work the night before a DD because I sleep most of the DD's away and eat the one meal when I get up.

On UP days when I work I spread out my calories from the time I get up and have my last bit of food at 2:am.

Started with a personal trainer last week. See him today. He wants to see what I have been eating. I copied off samples of my menus from ******. I know he is not going to like my DD's menus. But it is working for me and I am only doing heavy exercise on UP days. I walk 3 miles on down days.

I am liking the pattern on UP/DD eating.

Hope ya'll have a great day. Keep at it.

Oops. Question for So Happy or anyone who is in the know. Do I recalculate my numbers as I am losing or leave them the same as when I started? Also, I change my level of fitness do I recalculate my numbers?

Wow! Congratulations! That is a great job, and JUDDD is really working for you.... or I should say, you are really working JUDDD!!!!! I knew you would work into an eating routine that worked for you with your job hours. And you did great.

And it sounds like your calorie levels are set really, really well too. That's a big part of it, that's for sure.

Exciting news that you are working with a personal trainer. Lucky you! And as to him not liking the DD calorie levels, just point out that the UD calorie levels more than make up for it, and that cycling has been shown to really help folks lose weight at the same time it can often rev up metabolisms, and that's what you're also going for.

I don't know what it is about us in this country. We are so obsessed about eating, eating, eating! Stuff your mouth. Stuff your belly. Stuff your fat cells. People are terrified of feeling hunger pangs, frightened to hear a stomach rumble, unwilling to wait until the next mealtime to start eating once again. And to actually cut a day's food down to a scant amount? Oh, Horrors! LOLOLOL Well, your trainer isn't your boss, and who knows? Maybe he will be up on calorie cycling and completely approve. He certainly has to be happy about your wonderful weight loss.

I think you're really rockin' JUDDD! You're sure going to be my inspiration for this day!

JoLi, I would not adjust them too much with your new workout, unless you find you are more hungry or you stop losing weight, but weight training does not burn too many calories really. I did like 35 minutes yesterday and its like 150 calories burned. I could have ran for that time and burned 400 or more... so unless something changes with your "current path" I would keep it the same! Nice job on the 8.5... you are rocking it!!

Feeling ravenous though I'm not hungry. Unless you've been on Prednisone it's hard to describe. Ended what would have been a 500 day as an 892, had to have a Mission Carb Balance Large whole wheat burrito PB&J. Going to have to buy some SF jello tomorrow, not a box in the house. Have a bag of Gluccomana, read you can make pudding with it. Can you make jello? Also, when making puddings and such do you have to cook it? After my noodle disaster want to proceed with caution. Oh well, a nice cup of hot tea should help me get to sleep.
Just my update.
Sunday- 1420-105.Monday, 142lbs. Trying hard to keep things in check. Know Prednisone is having an effect but trying to keep it real. It's just weird not being hungry but feeling ravenous. Been keeping busy, upped my fiber and still keeping up on my fitnessday. My numbers probably aren't exact because I am grabbing and going and not weighing but some accountability is better than none. I've also cleared the house of nuts and pork rinds which never give me a problem but at this moment in time, nothing is easier to grab than a handful of cashews and pork rinds!

Woke up this morning feeling rather optimistic despite having a slightly running nose. Hoping it won't work its way into a real cold.

Yesterday was a bit of an odd situation day for me. I didn't sleep at all the night of my "b" fest(thanks for all the words of advice everyone)not only due to my my brain on overtime but the pain in my arm as well. I tried laying down later in the day but my arm was just killing me and I was actually getting myself worked up thinking omg I am having a heart attack. My blood pressure has been up the last few dr visits. I decided to walk down to the local clinic to have it checked. It was absolutely fine. While there the dr had no problem checking it(previously at my own dr the velcro on the cuff would start to slide off and I would have to use my opposite arm to hold the cuff in place. I asked my dr if that was the reason my reading was higher than normal and he said no. I asked the clinic dr and he pretty much said the opposite. That being said I don't like my family physician at all. I am pretty sure he thinks being overweight is a character flaw. He does nothing for my chronic pain and his suggestions are downright ridiculous for someone of my size. For example my back was very sore for several months a few years ago. He suggests a back exercise that involves not only the exercise but getting on the floor. I said I can not get up and down off the floor and asked if it can modified for say a bed or chair. No. Looks at me and turns away. I have said I have no issue with working on what needs to be worked on but I need to do it in such a way that I don't cause further issues yet he won't work with me. Anyhow rambling again I see, lol.

My son is doing much better for the most part. I have been on him to take his medication and he finally said to me last night not to worry as this medication to him isn't like antibiotics or vitamins. He knows he has to take the medication or things won't ever be better for him and I don't need to worry that not reminding him will cause him to forget as well. He is on top of it.

He isn't feeling 100% quite yet but seems to be making a much better effort in not letting disappointment and frustration ruin his whole day. No skipping school and when he doesn't get something like homework he asks for help and if that still doesn't work he just skips it and goes on to the next question or assignment instead of getting hung up and giving up altogether.

About the girls: everything they buy and own is from their own money. Both girls work pretty steady at fast food restaurants. The sharing of clothing with friends goes back and forth. I never know whose clothes are hung up in the closest. I have no problem paying for replacement shoes or what have you but if they want 10 pairs of shoes they can pay for them their selves.

Laundry is done by everyone in the house. The problem is each load of laundry costs $3 to do so we combine our stuff to make a load or more. With school, work and limited laundry room hrs sometimes it is hard to make it work efficiently.

Beth talked to a school counselor yesterday about her friend. Came home and told me she is frustrated the school seems only to be concerned about the hitting and not the bulimia. She is afraid her friend will lie and say nothing like that happens. The counselor didn't talk to the girl yet but did ask my daughter to come and talk with her more this morning. I called the principal and said outright I don't want the girls anymore involved with this. I am tired of Bethany and now my younger one Madison taking on everybody's problems emotionally and not just being young girls and doing what is best for them. He agrees and said he would talk to the counselor. I also told the girls this will be last I want to hear of the situation. Some people sadly are destined to have sad lives and you can only do so much for them.

Same goes with the woman with the rent problem. Ran into her while on the way back from the dr. She didn't tell her therapist that she screwed up again. I just shook my head. Told her I didn't know what else to say or suggest. Said I was sure she would be fine and left it at that. When I woke up from my nap later in the day the girls said she had called because she lost her bus pass. Light bulb moment. She is never going to change no matter what anyone does to help. She is like a perpetual lost little girl and somehow she thinks this looks attractive. This woman is almost 50 but comes across as a 20 year old and not in a good way, lol.

Washing my hands officially of this nonsense. Deleted a bunch of people off facebook.

I agree with Beeb in the whole "hero" issue. For years and years and even now my opinion meant little or nothing to my family(mom+sister). So when someone asks me something or what to do I am more than willing to get involved because it makes me feel like I count.

Bonnylass: that prednisone is something else isn't it. I only needed it once about 7 years ago and can still remember the feeling out of out of control cravings. 10x's worse than pregnancy cravings for me.

Amyliz: I try to combine IF, JUDDD and low carb as when I do this it is what works best for me. These are the plans that I had little problem following as long as I didn't let life get in the way. I find that IF helps because I don't think of my next meal which sometimes sets me off on a binge or a resentment attitude and angry eating.

I think I used the term "induction" - borrowed from Atkins - to refer to my first two weeks when I tried to stick to around 300 calories. I don't think Dr. Johnson used that term. I'm far from an authority, but I can't imagine there's a problem with sticking to that level indefinitely on down days (other than the fact that it's difficult to do). I would have stuck with 300 calories if I thought I could do it long term without being miserable. I thought the whole idea was fasting intermittently. The lower the calories, the closer to a fast it is.

JoLi - congratulations on that excellent loss!

Bonnylass - you're doing a great job not giving in to the prednisone "cravings." I should follow your lead and remove nuts from my house!

Yes, Dr. Johnson does use the actual term *Induction* in starting the JUDDD plan, and it is an actual 2-week duration. That's when it is suggested that calories not exceed 500 daily cals on Down Days, can be lower than that, but shouldn't exceed.

And you can keep to your induction calories on your Down Days for as long as you want to. You could actually do a total fast on Down Days if that would be something you'd want to do, but most of us would find that very hard to stick to, and very hard to continue doing.

Hello everyone! Hope you all are having great UDs or DDs today. It's an DD for me and it's 1:30 and I JUST started to get hungry! Clients this afternoon so dinner will probably be later anyway so eating my first meal this late is probably a good choice!

JoLi.... Look at you GO!!! Amazing!!

Bonnylass.....hang in there!

Momof3..... Good for you feeling to say NO!! You will see it gets easier and easier and those "light bulb" moments will come more and more now since you are honoring YOUR boundaries and taking care of how YOU want people to treat you!

Good evening ladies. I was down 2lbs this morning. Thank god. I doubti will bedown tomorrow since today was an UD but with all the exercise I did I just might be. I jogged this morning, gym at lunch to walk on the treadmill, gym after work and hit the elliptical. I burned about 800 calories and ate about 1600 calories so good calorie deficit. I'm looking forward to my DD tomorrow. I have it figured at about 600 cals and ill jog in the morning and then go to the gym at lunch so ill burn about 500 calories.

I'm going to try eating more keto on my UDs during the week and adding more carbs on the weekends. I have been really weight lifting so I'm gonna try it. The refeed on one weekend da will be nice and I think it will help meto get my calories up on UDs. Its more like atkins I guess except for the refeed. But its higher fat, high protein and low to mod carbs. I will still end up having more carbs on DDs just because of the veggies but I'm thinking that will make it even better. My DDs will be higher carb, low fat, low cal and mod protein then UDs low carb, high fat and high protein. 1 day on the weekend will be a refeed day where I will eat about 100 carbs or more if I want to. We will see how it goes.

Have a good evening everyone. Looking forward to a great DD tomorrow. I am having aprotein shake, an atkins bar, 1 pouch of tuna and a cucumber cut up to snack on. Dinner is a boiled egg and salad.

Hello everyone.

DD for me today 610 calories. I wanted to eat all day, not really hungry but just wanted to munch. For me it is such a mental thing. Probably just because I knew I was trying to keep to calories low. Self sabotage.

Made a nice turkey stirfry for supper 200 calories for 2 cups. yum

I was like this today, too! We have cooler weather coming and I really believe our bodies just know when this is going to happen so it wants to eat more. I have food journals from way back and when I look at my eating habits I see a difference when the weather is going to change (yea, I track the weather, too! ). Once I started to eat today I just wanted to keep going. Finally I got my fill around 8 tonight!

Some days like this I'm just SO happy that the next day is an UD!!

Down another pound after an Up day. 2.6 of my 5.6 weekend gain is gone.

Today is a down day, and am heading for the grocery store for the week's food. Going to look for some shiritaki noodles and maybe chicken.

Hopefully TOM will be over soon...it has made me completely exhausted this month!

I lost a pound after my first DD, and I only gained .2 after the UD. Not bad! Hoping for at least to have a 1lb loss by Sunday (my *official* weigh in day)

Well, what was the weighin?? or are you weighing in tomorrow??

Good job ladies on the losses.

So I was down another 1 lb today tooo...!!! I have to say, I think doing JUDDD has totally confused my metabolism and I am soooo happy about it!!! I have fought losing weight and the only way that worked (and really only the first time) was HCG in the last 2 years!! I have lost 5 lbs in 1 week, 5 days.. and 2 more days before my 2 weeks, so thats pretty cool!!!! Crossing all fingers and toes that it continues! I am afraid to change anything to see what might work otherwise, so just staying the course, except started on Monday with a heavy duty weight training program. Well, its gonna get heavy duty!! LOL Today will be my second day on it... Anyway, wanted to share since I feel empowered this morning to see that number again. I am on the bottom half of the 150s again and headed back to the 140s! My BMI as of this morning is back to normal, and no longer overweight (still high normal, but normal all the same)... Have a great Wednesday everyone!!
