I really love the orginal recipe. But to have the other stuff I want today in small proportions I'm going have to make a tough decision. But, I am losing and want to continue to do so, so I'm going to choose the grilled. But of course I may falter when it actually comes to it. :-)
I'm going to do an official weigh in on Tuesday morning. I will have been one week on JUDD. It is pretty much an O.K way to lose weight.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
I like it really well for weight loss, as I really like only having to restrict what I eat half the time. There's so much that I like to include in my weekly meals, that I really enjoy those UDs a lot each week, and I'm so glad I don't have to be on a diet on those days.

But it's even nicer once you're doing a stretch of maintenance, where I increase the calories on DDs to about the MD level, and sometimes eat way above my UD ceiling too. Pretty darned nice. Then you just do a balancing act with the pounds and the calories and kinda' just keep yourself in the same range, give or take a few.

Are you doing the same DDs and UDs on the same day each week? Is your official weekly weigh-in day after a DD or an UD. Only asking because after UDs the weight is usually a bit higher, naturally, than it is after a DD. But either way, you've either lost weight or not.

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that you continue to see weight loss. (And for the KFC, I can only stop in on an UD, and then rarely. But I love that extra crispy stuff. Especially that extra crispy part!)

I decided to just jump in to JUDDD. Had a good day yesterday, about 1900 cals, introduced some carbs and hummus. I'm up 2.4lbs. I'm doing a DD today. Just had a burger for lunch, no bfast, gonna' have a steak for dinner. Likely come in close to 1000 cals today. I guess that won't be as low as I should go. I'll have to figure it out. Next DD I'll go for lower calorie foods. Methinks som planning is in order here

Dazy-good to see you here. I'm glad you're here and hope you stabilize well.

Liz-feel better. I've been lightheaded more lately myself. I think it's the weight training. Maybe my metabolism is speeding up.

Thanks again for this great thread and sharing all your input and support. Looking forward to hopeuflly losing with you all!

Have a great Labor Day. Just an excuse to swim and BBQ, but I'll take it .
thanks, julie! so glad to do this some of my hcg peeps. looking forward to starting this, but not sure about when? what do you think? do you think i need to do a full 3 week P3 before juggling calories or would it not matter since i still would like to lose 5-8 more lbs?

As of today I am going to do my days on the same day. Ie, Mon,Tues,Wed. Will be my down days. It may work better with my job. I'll just have to work it out. Sunday will be a medium day.

It looks like everyone has a higher UP day then I do. Does this number change as you lose weight? My UP day calories are around 1700. I'm doing 500 for my DD's.

I will have my weigh ins after a down day.

One thing I have enjoyed about JUDDD is eating at a little (or a lot) higher carb level on a pretty regular basis, and being able to have things like hummus in my diet. I expect that I am most certainly carrying around some *water weight*... I expect if I did a seriously low carb couple of weeks, I'd be able to lose quite a few pounds of just water.

But... I'm not going back to eating low carb, so allowing myself to gain some overall hydration from the water was OK with me. Mostly I just want to keep my fat down from how obese I used to be.

I'm just mentioning my own level here, just in case your 1,000 calorie day, normally considered in the range of a MD, isn't quite enough to remove all of your 2.4 pounds overnight. LOL On the other hand, we've all had days where we dumped that much easily, so that'll probably be what happens to you too. LOL

I guess what I'm wondering is... if you are willing to carry some water *weight* (which doesn't relate to any real increase in size or appearance) in exchange for eating at a little higher carb level. For myself, if I still wear my sizes and look the same size, I don't care of the scale says I weigh 300 pounds. In other words, I don't care whether I weight a bit heavier because of just water. But some don't think about the possibility of gaining a couple of pounds in water weight when they also begin to enjoy some of their favorite missing carbs in their diet again. Just wanted to mention the possibility, just in case...

and for any who read here.

I don't know how much water weight I carry, but I'm sure not willing to cut my carbs back down to those previous low levels that worked so poorly for me just to find out. Cause I only care about losing the puffy fat, don't care about the water at all. LOL

Honestly, I have not been paying all that much attention to carb levels. I've played that game before and don't want to mess with it too much. I think I eat about 100 or so carbs on my UP days.

I think that varies an awfully lot with the individual person and their size and age and activity level, and probably a whole lot more factors too.

One gal here had 1,500 UDs and 500 DDs and 1,000 MD, and she was losing weight at the rate of 10 and 11 pounds a month!!!

I'm not all that focused on whether I'm losing much these days or not, so my UDs are enjoyably high. And they're much higher now than I could get away with a few months ago, which I really like.

I think if I was really, really focused on weight LOSS, I'd bring my UD calories down some. But one of the things that seemed to help me was that big wide spread between low DD calories and high UD calories.

I guess it's a hard question to really know about, isn't it. So much depends on whether you are including many carbs in your diet or not, etc. Obviously, Dr. Atkins said we could often eat at a hugely elevated calorie level if we kept it very low carb. It was when we started introducing the carbs back in that we had to walk the tightrope more.

If you're losing weight well over the next couple of weeks at your calorie levels, you can then decide to increase it by 100 calories on your Up Days and see if you are still losing well. Easy to work the calorie numbers up and down. But I'd still keep to a low DD.

Sounds like you getting your schedule worked out to what makes it most logical and do-able for you personally. And it sounds like it's going well for you. Yay!

I don't much either. Obviously, if I've got a chocolate cake sitting on the counter, I can't just finish it off in a single day. I mean, dieting has always been about keeping some sense of what foods were just WRONG for weight loss.

But I don't worry much about carbs these days. I feel like I stay about mid-range most UDs, and that allows me to enjoy the fruits and vegetables and grains and dairy and occasional treats that I wish to have in my diet at this time in my life. And I am able to do so by following the principle of JUDDD. So I do.

I'm not skinny. I doubt I'll ever try for that weight level any more in my life, although I was very slim for most of my years, but at this age I feel happier keeping a balance between not being too fat, and not losing so much that I'm also too wrinkly! Old age is Hell. You've seen the avatar picture. That's about where I stay these days. Good enough.

cathy...were you still on hcg when you decided to move to JUDDD? if so, how long had you been dosing?
Dazy, yes on the HCG. I am actually taking it on DD and not during UD, but just started so not sure of the outcome yet. Paula used to do JUDDD with HCG and she said she dosed on DD, so that is what I am trying. Who knows!! But good to see you here too!! Our "old" gang is all joining the "JUDDD gang"

Liz, I'm sorry I missed this post until now. I'm afraid when several posts are coming in and I respond to the first one, I need to be very careful to go all the way back to make sure I don't miss a posting, and this one is an important one.

I'm really sorry you aren't feeling well and right yet. That just sounds completely unpleasant, in addition to having to bear the pain of headache.

I think you're smart to just not worry about doing a DD yet. It's more important to get back to feeling well. Maybe it is a virus after all. Take care of yourself. Make DH pamper you some!

Keep us updated, and I'll be keeping you in my thoughts. Feel better soon.

Nope, not me. My up days are about 1200 calories, and my down days are a max of 500, although I keep them lower if I can. When I first started losing weight (on Atkins), I was aware of calories but I didn't count them. I moved to JUDDD after I'd lost a chunk of weight and calories became much more relevant. I still stay low carb (no more than 20-30 net carbs a day) even with JUDDD. That's harder on down days than up days, since I need to rely on lower calorie veggies to fill me up, but it's certainly do-able.

I weigh daily and I've found that there's no rhyme or reason to my weight fluctuations. I'm just as often lower after an up day as I am after a down day. I just ignore the daily ups and downs and watch the trends.

JoLi, my down days are 500, but it says my up days are 2500, but I figure 2200-2300 would be good. I am very active with exercise, and thats a good part of it. I only get like 1500-1600 BMR (no activity included)...

I completed my first DD yesterday. I'm so proud of me. I'm the person that usually blows it day one of every diet I ever start.

Woo Hoo! Success is an awfully good start, isn't it! Welcome.

Hope you love JUDDD. I sure do! There isn't any weight loss diet plan that doesn't call for restriction in some way, but at least JUDDD only calls for restriction on half of your days. The other half are yours to enjoy as you will. LOL

Glad you're will us. This is a very friendly and encouraging group.

Morning all. I thought I would go ahead and post something. I have been doing juddd for a week now. I'm doing mon, wed and fri dd and tue, thur, sat and sun ud. I did juddd before and did great on it for about a month or so and then my ed flared up. At first I blamed juddd but it wasn't totally juddd. There were other things going on. I have decided to not worry if I go over 500. This kinda keeps me from feeling too restricted. Last Monday was about 600, wed about the same and Friday was lower. I weigh everyday so I went down about 4lbs last week but it was water. I have let myself gain a few lbs and have to nip it in the bud but I don't want to do what I have done before and start restricting. I lose this way but I also lose muscle and I want to try to keep the muscle I'm gaining. I'm going to the gym and my arms and shoulders are looking amazing. I don't want to get too skinny, which I end up dping quite a bit. If I can work this correctly I can get lean and stil keep my muscle. I know people that lift weights love doing IF but I can't do IF.
So its going well so far. My problem will be today. My DD are on work day which makes it really easy to stay on plan but I'm off today so its gonna be tugh but I can do it. So far, so good.
I'm really glad to join you guys. Beebs posts over on the main board are what got me to do it...she was so enthusiastic and I love reading the posts by sohappy.
Pray for me today!

Good Morning, Shelly. I hear you on the desire and necessity of building and maintaining muscle mass as well as simply muscle strength. We gals don't bulk up much, but having sleek well formed muscle areas on our bodies, in strong toned-up condition is a worthy goal to always have in mind. I mean, we live inside these bodies! For heaven's sake, it's important to take good care of them.

And I'm with you about being awfully resistant to constant restriction as a means to lose weight or as a means to maintain weight. I do believe our body lowers and slows itself to conform to an ongoing restriction, and that's the very last thing I want to have happen to me! I like the single day restriction of a Down Day, which is then followed by an abundant and nutritious Up Day. It just *feels* like a very natural way we, as primative and innocent early humans, would probably have been able to feed. Some lean days, and some days of plenty. I think it allows good health to flourish at the same time it promotes and moderates normal appetite and metabolism. It seems to have some influence on returning us to *normal*... But I don't think of JUDDD as *restricting* as such. Only as saving some of one day's calories to add to the next day's share, in order to get away with eating more the second day, in order to keep pushing that calorie ceiling to the limit.. and get away with it. It seems to help keep my metabolism functioning better all the time.

So all of this to say, I need to get in a better workout today, and pay some special attention to my old BUTT. I keep working on my arms and shoulders, but an old woman shouldn't ever forget about what the rear view looks like.

Good morning ladies,
Check in on my DD #2... UD yesterday, did about 2300 calories, and this morning, same as the day before, so no UP... thats good right? I was happy to see it not going up... even though I would have been okay if it had, I was expecting it!

Shelley, you will do great today! Good for you on knowing what your body needs and how to work with it. I am sure you will rock JUDDD!!

Cherry, great job on making it through day 1, now you get a nice UP day for your reward. Enjoy smartly!!

Anyone doing anything exciting today for Labor Day? We are just chillin' I think...

Hope you all enjoy!! TTFN

That's great, Cathy! I'm usually up in weight a smidge after each UD, although not always, and when I'm not, I'm extra happy, because I know that paired with a good DD means I'll almost undoubtedly see a lower number on the scale the next morning.

We're not doing anything today either. DH went to his gym for a good workout to start the day. I'll exercise here later. Right now I'm doing laundry, so bedding will be fresh this evening. I'm old enough that I have my old fashioned routine. Monday is laundry day. LOL

This is an UD for me, so still in the process of planning my meals. Just enjoying coffee with half & half right now. Brunch in a bit.

Can't blame you for wanting to keep going as long as *the going is good*...

But I'm looking forward to having you with us here! You can post here in the meantime and let us know how you're coming along with your protocol, and we can be cheering for you!

We're not doing anything today either. DH went to his gym for a good workout to start the day. I'll exercise here later. Right now I'm doing laundry, so bedding will be fresh this evening. I'm old enough that I have my old fashioned routine. Monday is laundry day. LOL

This is an UD for me, so still in the process of planning my meals. Just enjoying coffee with half & half right now. Brunch in a bit.


Hi, Everyone! Hoping you're all having a good start this morning!
Thats kind of what I thought too Pat, shoould be good for tomorrow! I guess I am old fashioned too, as Fridays as laundry days for me. Sundays are cleaning days, (the good old scrubbings of bathrooms and stuff are done on this day). I am exercising at home too. Usually Mondays are Turbo kickboxing, but none today due to holiday so I will do Billy Blanks Tae-Bo video today for a change up!! Enjoy your "washing"!! and your UD!!!

Well, I totally blew my "medium" day yesterday. Not with food but alcohol. We visited with friends for about 5 hours yesterday and my one small glass turned into 3 large ones.
It was good, but I'm feeling it today. Today is a DD so I will be extra careful today.

Good morning everyone!! It's really nice today, cool and sunny. I plan on working in the yard if my headache goes away. Otherwise than that it will be just chilling. We are thinking of downsizing so I am in the process of cleaning closets. I might do some more of that today.

If the headache sticks around then it will be movies and reading. I haven't weighed for a few days, kinda scared to. If this weigh loss thing was easy, everyone would do it. Today will be a DD if I can handle it.

One thing that is interesting. Two years ago before I starting losing weight, I had to eat as soon as I got up. Now I can go until lunch usually without problem. Getting lab work when I had to fast just about did me in.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time, and life isn't only about dieting to become slimmer or watching what we eat in order to remain slim, it's also about meeting each day joyfully, and sometimes that means ending the day even more joyfully!

If you're back on plan today with a DD and do it well, I expect tomorrow morning the scale can show you that all is forgiven. LOL I'll bet you'll do fine.

Have a great day today.

Good news is by keeping track on ************, days where I thought I had totally blown it were really pretty salvagable, so even when we are "blowing" it it pays to keep track. A lot of nervous, mindless eating and I really don't know why. My schedule has changed dramatically but that is no excuse. Hopefully things will balance out.
I am working at the Buffalo Wing Fest this week end. That might work out for me, nothing but wings, not a carb in sight!
Sat- 769/32, Sun- 1493/150, weight this Monday morning- 140. Go figure! Even though there was a loss I am not feeling my best. I have a carb hangover. I'm just not use to those huge carb numbers and to be honest I don't want to get use to it. For me I think it's asking for trouble. Maybe not so much now because except for last nights Cream of Wheat most of my carbs have been from fruit and veggies(Sunday- 3 huge ears of corn, 2 oranges)It's not just about losing, it's about feeling my best and I'm learning that at this stage of the game I feel my best at 50 grams plus or minus depending on if it's an UD or DD.
Joedi- I think you asked about keeping set days. I do, at this stage it would be too easy to start bending the cycle and before you know it everyday is an UD. I think for me it's easier. I got to be almost three hundred pounds by bending the rules every day, and I've let carb creep keep me from reaching my goal. I've come to the realization that tailoring every way of eating to suit myself has led me down this yo-yo road. I just want to reach my goal weight and maintain it once and for all ,and I truly believe this WOE will help me do that. Good luck and good eatin' this week everyone.

Hi everyone! Happy Labor Day to all in the US!

Great to see how many posts we have already on this thread...and its only the 5th of the month! As a new juddder I have just finished working my way through Augusts threads....and will start on Julys....I find them really helpful in keeping me motivated, cos I am still white knuckling my DD's a bit!

UD today, and just had a nice lunch out. Trouble is, tom is due today, so I am bloated like a ball, and grumpy with it

Weird weather here is South Shields....sunny and warm...with intermitant hailstones...sure makes it hard to know what to wear!

Off to give blood now....they will be getting good stuff today, with my UD meal out..very nourishing

hugs
Jo

Good Morning, BonnyLass!

I couldn't agree with you more about diet and eating being about far more than just a number on a scale!!!!! Feeling poorly in a slim body can be only slightly better than feeling poorly in a heavy body.

The lovely thing about diet is that it can be modified to suit our needs as well as our tastes, and we all pretty much agree that *One Size Does NOT Fit All* when it comes to what foods keep us feeling the best, keep our lab reports looking top notch, help us slim down while filling us with energy.

I do expect you just plainly ate too high on the carb ladder for your own needs at this time, and that's sort of one of the pit falls to JUDDD for those coming here from a far more restricted low carb plan. Probably not a good idea to include a lot of carbs from foods you've been missing, all at the same time. LOL Corn on the cob is delicious, but I've only included it twice yet, and only a single ear each time. I love oranges, and eat them pretty often, but just a single orange for the day. I've included a little orange juice in today's breakfast menu, but only a single 1/2 cup measure.

JUDDD works just fine, usually.. no matter what foods you choose to include in your meals, but jumping up to a *high* mid-range right off the bat can do that carb hangover thing. Sorry. But easy to correct. I bet you'll feel a whole lot better by the end of the day.

Do you plan out your meals ahead of time? That way you can plan for that single ear of corn and simply not cook any more than that for yourself, or take just a single ear at a festival, and know that you won't be choosing to have any more.

That's only my suggestion. Not meaning to push any of my planning methods onto you if you are happier doing it a different way.

Glad your weight went down, and I'll bet that good news will just be repeated over and over as the weeks go by. Exciting thought, isn't it!

Bonnylass...you are only 5lbs from goal...WOOOT! It seems to me quite a few people turn to juddd to lose those last few pounds....and most seem to end up staying!

Sohappy...how long have you been doing juddd? I know you can from l/c, which wasnt suiting you...but you seem so knowlegeable and sorted...I kind of assumed you had been juddding for years!

hugs
Jo
