WOE: JUDDD!!!
Wanting to get back to replying to the rest of the posts here. Had to take a break to brew a cup of hot tea on this crisp Saturday morning. This is great college football weather, but DH's favorite team is off this week, so he'll have to satisfy himself watching the games of other teams, which he seems to be perfectly happy to do.

OH! I just forgot.. I have some paper plates shaped like footballs. For next weekend when his team plays again, I'll have to fix up a good football tailgate party for him in the family room, have him invite over a buddy or two, etc. LOL


E.W. I'm so sorry to hear you are having this issue with water retention. Is this water weight gain from eating more carbs these days on JUDDD, or more a health issue of edema in the tissues that you are talking about? If it's just water weight gain from eating a few more carbs these days, I never worried about that at all. So, I weigh a bit more because of water. I could not care less! LOL What I wanted to do was to get rid of my FAT. (Well, I wanted the fat to go while I could eat some carbs too. For me, that was the ideal weight world to be able to live in.) So I accept a little additional weight from water inside me, from the carb fuel stores I now have within me, but I'm happy that I've lost so much of my fat.

I am thrilled to hear that the scale told you this morning's weight was UNDER 280, so I know you'll be seeing that number again real soon! Don't worry about whether it's weight after an Up Day or weight after a Down Day. We assume we'll weigh more after the UD eating, but that isn't always the case, and I've had weeks where I weighed as much at the end of the week as I did at the end of the previous week, and then I'll lose three or four pounds in a single week, so... who the heck knows how to predict how the weight will melt off.

The only thing I know we can count on is that if we keep at it, the weight will melt away. It'll be pretty fast for some of us, and it'll really be a slow process for others of us, but it'll happen for all of us.

But I hate to hear about you having to have two DDs in a row. Is that intentional to try to lose weight faster, or just because it happened like that. If it just happened, maybe you can make one of those days be a Medium Day next time so that the cycling thing will work a bit better for you and give you a bit faster weight loss overall, as time goes by.

I tried a couple of weeks of experimenting, doing two DDs preceding each single UD, although I made that a bigger UD when it arrived, and I didn't notice much difference in rate of weight loss, etc. I just believe in the *up - down cycle* concept so much more than the *holding the calories down more often* theory for overall weight loss results at the same time metabolism is being cranked up by the cycling. JUDDD is just sort of the exact opposite of the kinds of diets that make you keep your calories down all the time. But that's why JUDDD seems to help so many of us to a little bit better and faster metabolisms, I guess. Supposedly the cycling and the sharp DD calorie contrast with the nice UD calorie level activates that *skinny gene* in us. Man! I hope so! I bet that metabolism thing will happen for you too as you continue. Keeping my fingers crossed, because I think that's close to the best thing about JUDDD. (Well, actually the weight loss, of course, but that better metabolism is really nice too!)

I know you're going to do really well with JUDDD, and you'll be down solidly into the 270s very shortly. And then on down from there too! Hugs! Congrats on that sneak peek into the 270s!



Joannew, .2 down is in the right direction! Yay! It's already happening for you. I'll bet at the end of the week you notice even more loss, and at the end of two weeks, even more again! Like you said, slow and steady wins the race. And as we are *dieting* and losing weight... we are also having all those fabulous Up Days and the freedom of eating anything, anywhere and actually not having to be on a diet at all.

How can anyone NOT love a diet plan that has you on the diet part only half the time? And doesn't have a long list of food you can't eat? I keep forgetting that I'm on a diet. That's never happened to me before on any other plan.


1annewil, welcome! It's wonderful to have you join us, Anne. I think you'll love it here, and I'll bet JUDDD will be able to get those 7 pounds back off of you, and even more if you want to get to a lower weight as well. Or if you are maintaining after losing the 7, this will be an awfully nice plan to do it with.

As you've undoubtedly already read here, the carb level you choose to do JUDDD at is entirely up to you. Some remain low carb while others are easily eating at an *Atkins* maintenance level of carbs while still losing weight on JUDDD. That's pretty exciting to know, I think! I wouldn't recommend it, but I suspect you could lose weight doing JUDDD on nothing but Twinkies. LOL Just sort of lacking in nutrients there.

Good idea to just do a *pretty good* job with the calorie cycling while you're in Dallas with your dear sister. I wouldn't be overly concerned with how close you are to your calorie levels though. Just have FUN! Relax and enjoy and laugh a lot. I'm good friends with my sisters, so I can imagine what a good time you two will have. JUDDD will be here for you when you get back. And we will be too, and very happy to have you joining us.


catjrow3, good morning. You said you're finally back to the weight you were last week, after going up in weight this week... I'm wondering if the increase in weight could be because you are eating at a bit higher carb level than previously? Like, I'm just thinking maybe you've actually increased your internal water weight just a bit, but lost a bit of fat weight to compensate, and are now back to the starting weight, but holding more water weight within you right now.

So, what I'm thinking is.. now that you are *readjusted*.. you'll probably be on the track to weight loss that is the final few pounds of true fat loss.

I think sometimes we take the scale weight too seriously. So if we regain some water weight, we panic because we think we're *gaining weight* as in.. we're *getting fatter* .. when that isn't what is happening at all. We may actually be losing a bit of fat while we're regaining a bit of water, and we just don't know how to correctly interpret what the scale shows. Just a thought.


Well, off to prep some foods for today and get that chicken corn chowder started for DH's lunch. And eat some breakfast to start off my Medium Day today. Let's make it a good one, JUDDD BUDDDs!

Hey Pat, thanks for the insight. Who knows with me. I had a bad "biscuit" day. I do love carbs last Saturday and it did not help matters, TOM was here, and I started heavy weight lifting, all of which can contribute. I was flustered for a couple days and thought to give it up, but held on and continued. I feel like maybe its settling again. I was so up and down with carbs before starting that who knows. I know I retain water severely when I eat too many sugary carbs especially and I have to watch it... so yeah, just coasting, but hopeful!! I am actually 0.4 less than last weeks' low, so thats good news and I am hoping next week will bring a lb or better yet, 2 off... Yesterday was a DD and today will have to be a MD or DD since tomorrow needs to be an UD as I am in a fitness all day concert in denver and will need some calories for all that exercise. So I thought maybe this is when a MD is good? We will see!!

Anyway, thanks for checking up on me, and I cannot say one way or other, but I am seem to be "adjusting" and thats a good thing!!!

Yes, I think you are adjusting to it all too.

I think one big mistake folks occasionally make is feeling panic if they start JUDDD and actually gain back a bit. We know the scale can't tell us if that gain is weight put on by fat or water accumulation, but when you STOP, and actually consider it, you realize that it is very doubtful that it is fat.

Come on... it takes 3,500 extra calories to gain a single pound of body fat, and somebody thinks they actually ate that much or more ADDITIONAL in calories, all while they adhered to their UD calories and kept their DD calories down to in the range of 500 or so?????

That's a pretty good indication that their body has just latched onto some water weight from them increasing the carbs in their new diet, which most of us do. LOL But JUDDD isn't making them gain weight. They are choosing to, if they choose to increase the carbs in their diet, but that's not JUDDD's fault.

And truthfully, what is usually going to happen for us is that we'll gain a bit of water weight back because we are probably going to allow ourselves the freedom to enjoy a much, much larger variety of foods in our diets, including some of those carby foods that we'd missed for so long. And then we'll continue on JUDDD, and this diet plan will let us continue losing body FAT down to the weight we'd like to maintain at. All while we are still getting to enjoy the foods of our choice, and all while we hold onto a smidge of that regained water weight. Big deal. Seriously, I really do love it! I really do!

I think you are doing well! You are down this week (always good) - I am up 1.6 over last week...but I'll make it up next week!

What is a fitness concert? That sounds hard core!

JUDDD really works. But while the extremely low carb start to a LC diet plan is heady stuff as a person sheds water weight like crazy, that doesn't really tell them anything about how the rest of the plan is going to work for them, and sometimes it doesn't very well. I'm one of those. Sometimes folks are overweight for years and can't get the diet to make them lose anymore weight. I can tell you from experience how frustrating that is. Or ya' can't stick to the diet, so it fails you (or you fail it)... and I can relate to that from my own personal experience too, because let's face it.. some plans are very restricting, and they fail to work very well if you don't restrict sharply. I hated that. Especially when I wasn't seeing any weight loss in return for my efforts. My work was way out of proportion to any weight loss I was having happen. Hated it!

The diet plans where I had to just eat cabbage soup, and then some oddly rotated list of foods like having a banana on a certain day, etc. etc. etc. Ummmm..... no. That's not a plan I'm interested in anymore either. I just don't like weirdly convoluted diet plans with lists of what foods you can't have and what foods you have to eat, etc.

And then the diets where I just had to bring my calories down real low and hold them down there day after day after day, and of course that meant having to cut the butter and the cheese and the fatty meats and the... fudge brownies... and all the time I was keeping my calories down, my metabolism was slowing down to match that level. That wasn't a very fun way to have to live either. Not a fun way to be able to lose weight.

JUDDD is fun! It's so easy. It's so all encompassing of foods and individual tastes. It allows for a person to not be on a diet on any occasion of holiday or party or outing. It's so forgiving if we go off plan for the duration of a vacation. Or.. a cruise!

Lordy, I'm beginning to sound like Beeb!

catjrow3, I'm sure you'll see continued loss of weight-- even with the bouncing!

Pat, thanks! I just hope this is the beginning of some downward momentum. Very curious to see what the scale has to say tomorrow after another DD!

Pat,

I did two rounds of hhcg so I know of what you speak, LOL. I have no regrets, and it was great for rapid weight loss. While in P3/P4 I ate higher fat/high protein/lower carb. I was becoming bored with lack of variety. I am looking for something that I can realistically MAINTAIN FOR LIFE. I think this is IT. I am commited to giving it a month, but, so far, week one, and I like it. As you can IMAGINE my week one has been a little crazy with a few more sugars and starches then I plan on consuming on a weekly basis, but, in doing so I didn't gain anything. I am happy. I've already been thinking about my upcoming cruise, lol. I may try to lose a few pounds the week before, or not. If not, then I will eat sensibly. I DO plan on walking the track daily. It's so much a part of my routine now.

Hello to all my JUDDD BUDDS!!!!

I had a great time last night! The rock music was great, the vampires were sexy, and a us girls had a lot of fun.... and a few funny looks when we came back to our home town and went to the local bar!
Funny thing is, I don't drink-alcohol makes me unwell- but I always wake up with a headache if my companions have had a few!

WTG, Miss Joedi!

I want to say WTG on everyone who has had a loss and remember: A LOSS IS A LOSS NO MATTER HOW SMALL! It's less than you were a day ago and that is ALWAYS a good thing!! And for those of you who seem to be gaining just starting JUDDD, I gain almost every UD because I am now eating carbs I haven't eaten before, BUT the weight ALWAYS comes off on the next DD for me and sometimes taking a bit more with it! Hang in there, give JUDDD a chance, at least 2 weeks if you can, and THEN decide if it's the "right OR wrong fit". You may find giving this a chance will make all the difference in the world!

We have so many new JUDDD BUDDDs here and coming in and I want to any I haven't gotten a chance to welcome! So glad you guys have decided to join this wonderful JUDDD FAMILY and I'm hoping you find JUDDD just as amazing as we do!

Paula, it is a bit hard core. Its all day long and its bootcamp, turbo kickboxing, yoga and zumba.... so you exercise like all day long between the 4 classes! I am an exercise addict though, so I am really looking forward to it.

WOW, I really wish I was this motivated to exercise and that my foot would allow me to do this.

I'll live through you in the mean time!

Told you that you'd like it!

I'm so glad you were willing to give it a chance back when you were actually gaining weight from low carbing and were so darned frustrated.. nobody could help but get that sense of absolute frustration from your posts.

And now look at you! The extra pounds have slipped away, and you are maintaining while enjoying a much wider range of foods. Instead of cutting back on your carbs and back and back and then down on your calories too, and down and down.. you've been able to increase your carbs dramatically (and deliciously) while only cutting down your calories on Down Days and increasing them on Up Days. And the excess weight melted away!

WOE: JUDDD let me lose 30 pounds and keep it off
Start Date: Seems like forever - restart June '11
Good Morning ALL. I got up to several pages of posts to go through. This is one busy group and it is a Saturday when most groups lag. It does say something for the WOE if so many are inspired.

When I got on the scale this morning I am at my lowest weight since we returned from our long trip last May. Yesterday was and UD, too!!

Pat, when you were writing your first post of the day it was about 4:30 AM here and yes, I was still sound asleep

The bran muffin sounds yummy, Linda. My glucomannan powder will arrive this week. I will have to wait until I get back to California to get my oat fiber as Amazon will not ship it here. It will be waiting for me when I go back there, though.

Off for my morning water workout. It looks to be a beautiful day here - as ususal!!

Hugs to ALL of you. I would be here all day if I responded to everyone as I would like to.

Hello JUDDD BUDDDS-

Dazy- My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I was in a similar situation some years ago and here is my unsolisited advice. I was always in a hurry to leave the hospital and go home. Things went much smoother for me and less stressful for my son when I relaxed and let the doctors set the time line (they do anyway). I guess what I am trying to say is your son will pick up your stress about going home...relax a little and know that they will release you when they think the time is right. Hugs for you and Noah.

Joedi- Your concert sounds like great fun. I love dressing up too. The sympathy hangover is to funny (could it be from smoke in the bar???).

1Anne- you may actually find it easier to start while on your trip. Not the 500 calorie days, but low-ish calorie days alternated with normal days. It took me a week to get my head straight enough for the very low calorie days. I have done JUDDD before and it took me awhile to get my DD where they needed to be (and where I wasn't starving).

Everyone- I had a 2000 calorie day Thursday which is very high for me, but under the calculator number. I was starved after my 2 DD in a row. Had a good DD yesterday and felt good all day. Seem to be getting the swing of things. DD are a little lower and the UD are a little higher, but less junk. Last week I ate a lot of the junk I had been missing and it made me feel terrible. This week I have been doing more wholesome foods and am feeling better.

I am down a little on the scale and hoping it will hold off for my Monday "official" weigh-in. LOL

Linda and Pat- our cheerleaders...thanks for the encouragement.

Nope...in the UK, smoking is banned in all restaurants, pubs, clubs and bars!..It must be the fumes!

I did the same thing the first couple of weeks; Ate all kinds of stuff I hadn't eaten in a long time and also felt . Eating LC has taught me (us) that the junk is not worth the price we have to pay to eat it, and eating wholesome, REAL food is the best way for great health!

I've got my fingers crossed for a great weigh-in on Monday!

I am so ready for dinner it's not funny. It's a DD and I've had a grand total of 247 calories so far today. I'm going to wait another 30 minutes and then make myself some chicken and spicy green beans. A LOT of green beans.

Ann, coffee and dill pickles helps me with my hunger. I don't overdo it on the dill pickles though because of the sodium.

Thanks, Marie. I avoid salt-- high blood pressure. I'm just going to chant the following until dinner time: "Real progress toward my goal will always be more satisfying than a transient pleasure right now."

I want to say WTG on everyone who has had a loss and remember: A LOSS IS A LOSS NO MATTER HOW SMALL!
Another 0.2 this week, or one stick of buttah gone, baby gone! Which is not surprising, because the humidity restarted and I am puffed up (rings and watch tight) so I know it's not body fat.

Joedi, I would have loved the vamp musical, and now I'll be singing the soundtrack to "Once More, With Feeling" all night. Yup, I still remember most of the words.

My UD is actually today, not tomorrow, which is good, because two consecutive DDs are Not A Good Thing for me. I can't "diet" for a prolonged period like that, which is why I have a 3/4 filled bottle of HHCG in my medicine cabinet next to the floss. I do floss daily. And every day I'm shufflin'. But I can't do the P&I protocol.

1Annewill, to the group of JUDDD BUDDDs. I dated a guy from MS a few years ago (Biloxi) and fell in love with the place, the people, and the food.

crzcrzy, I have been known to eat pickled sushi ginger to bust a craving. It works!

Dazy, (((((big hugs)))) to you, Noah and the rest of the family. Tell Noah that he'll be getting a "little something" by the end of next week. And what does the Tooth Fairy cough up nowadays? With inflation, I'd think at least $5.00!

Hey everyone. I haven't been posting or reading much doing all kinds of research on carb and calorie cycling has been taking up my time. I haven't gotten totally caught up but I will.
I thought I would give a quick update on how my refeed went yesterday. It was slightly scary which is why I have been researching like crazy. I knew exactly what to do and what I was getting into and what the negatives might be. So my goal was 400 carbs, 3000 cals, at least 100 grams of prtein and low fat, under 80 grams. Wow!! I ended the day with 350 carbs 2500 cals, 120 grams of protein and 69 grams of fat. I had an amazing depletion workout before my carb up started. So far, so good. Amazingly enough I'm not having cravings today at all. I'm still gonna be doing judddd along with this. This weekend I'm eating vlc, high fat, high protein to kick start myself back into ketosis and Monday will be a dd. This was surprisingly different than I thought it would be. I have way more control than I ever thoughti did. Having the carbs was really great but I didn't go totally crazy. I was also only up 1.5 lbs this morning. I know I may see more of an increase tomorrow morning but as long as the scale starts going back down I think this will be a great woe to work with for awhile. There is such a fine line in trying to keep and build muscle while also trying to lose fat. I'm hoping this will work. It has worked for quite a few and some on lcf.
Something interresting, I had a major workout yesterday morning. The carb up day workout is a total glycogen depletion workout. I did circuit training and by the time I was done my muscles were so weak I could barely move. A few hours later the soreness started like I knew it would. When I went o bed I was really sore. I expected it and I kinda like it...lol. something happened in the middle of the night. It was truly like the carbs just saturated my muscles. When I got up this morning thre was slight soreness but nothing like when I went to bed. I got up feeling wonderful. I wentback to the gym and had an amazing workout. I have felt awesome all day. No cravings whatsoever. its like having those carbs yesterday just soothed me or something. And it could have been so much worse. I had kashi cereal with almond mild, babanas, ice cream, half of acorn dog, half of a philly cheese steak, wine, salt water taffy, subway lowfat turkey and ham on wheat for dinner and ended the day with the same thing as I started, kashi cereal and half a banana with almond milk about 8pm last night. Oh I also had a pumpkin muffin from dunkin donuts. That was probably the worst thing. But I feel good. I'm just amazed.
Well this has been long and I apologize and I'm sorry i m not totally caught up on the thread. I will get there. Its so good to see so many new people. Juddd is amazing. What I'm doing isn't technically juddd. Its my own version and we will see if I continue with it.
Well back to reading the thread. Have a good evening everyone.

And, Sally! I see that you're another one who is losing. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it stays off until your official Monday weigh-in. But I bet it will. And, you know... even if it bounced back up a tad, it would be back down to that number and on down from there in short order again, so no worries.

I'm sitting here laughing at Ann! Hang in there, Girl!

I remember how hard the early days were for me. It seemed like everyone else was able to do it seemingly without any suffering, and I was just white-knuckling the DDs every single time.

And then I think two things happened. I did zero in on some meals that seemed to fill me up and hold me for a lot longer that were still within my calorie ceiling allowance of 500 cals, and even better than that was that somehow my appetite got brought under control and I just no longer felt all that hunger on DDs, or even on UDs if I haven't got to eat yet.

But finding foods and meals that can help keep you feeling full and satisfied on DDs is a real big help! I'd say that my very favorite is a HUGE.. HUGE stir fry with broccoli and green peppers and onions, some carrots and lots of mushrooms, all with my General Tso sauce over shirataki noodles.

Another big favorite is a HUGE.. HUGE plate of spaghetti with tons of zucchini chunks, pepper and onion slices, with some spaghetti sauce over shirataki noodles. And sprinkled over with mixed Italian herbs and some grated parmesan cheese!

Enjoy your green beans this evening. And, yeah.. make a LOT of them!
