Great attitude. I'll bet you see some good weight loss AND some good eating in your future!

Blonde Rose, it's so wonderful to have you stop here. I've looked for any new postings in your journal, and just read that you are worn to a frazzle getting ready for the return of your family members... And that it isn't going quite as quickly and smoothly as you had hoped it might! Well, Rats! That's the way it seems to work out about half the time, isn't it.

I was so glad to hear that you are still following your JUDDD plan, and hope you are having success with it. I am completely happy with it and what it has done for my body and my health!

Hope you'll stop in more often once your life has settled down a bit and isn't so frantic! This is such a joyful and friendly, supportive and encouraging bunch. We're having a good time!

Thanks Pat... I do pride myself on being a positive person, but I have down moments too! (just not as many I hope!) Lunch was yummo...I used the Better n'butter, which is half the calories of PB, and light bread, cuz thats what I have now... only about 250 calories so not too horrible!

Thanks Blonde Rose, nice to see you here. Hope you will continue to join us. Looks like you have been on JUDDD a while, still doing it??

Hi everyone!

I haven't checked in here in the last couple of weeks or so, but I am still plodding along with JUDDD. Still no more weight loss, but I am maintaining fairly well, so that's good.

My hopes were to lose 10 pounds or so, and I just think it isn't going to happen unless I really watch it and cut calories way down on both up and down days. Right now I don't think it's worth it to me. (Just in case you are wondering, my stats are not right. I no longer weight 117. I stay between 127 and 130 for the most part. I put some weight back on while in Atkins maintenance and unless I get really drastic, I don't think it's going anywhere)

Down days are still tough for me even though I have been on this plan for around 8 weeks or so. I never got the burst of energy the book mentioned that many people enjoy. A few times, I have messed up on down days and sometimes I have overdone it on updays, but overall, it's okay.

Sorry I haven't been here as much and I have not read all the posts in the Sept. thread. It's really long-must be lots more people finding JUDDD>
I can't be around as often because I homeschool my daughter and we started back with our schooling a few weeks ago.

I'll try to check in more often and best wishes to all. Keep up the good work.

I also believe that many people cause and create an exaggerated carb sensitivity for themselves by holding themselves to very low carb for an extended period.
so this is what i'm wondering about. dh and i have decided that once we are beyond the stabilizing of hcg and get back to our regularly scheduled program that we are going to lighten up, somewhat, on carbs....pizza once a month...enjoy good bread at a nice steak house occasionally....does simply eating carbs once in awhile reduce that sensitivity we may have developed? OR since hcg does include some carbs (fruit and some grains), have i already decreased my sensitivity?

LC is more vital to dh as he has a familial propensity for T2 diabetes. his mom was just put on insulin after years of "watching the sugars", then oral meds, and now insulin....soooo, it's much more important that he watch carbs from than aspect than me. but i don't think that lightening up on them will cause drastic harm as far as the genetic tendency toward diabetes.

Today is day 4 of JUDDD and I am loving it so far. The DD's are still pretty rough with only 500 calories, but my months of intermittent fasting have helped get through the day. I love that I can now stop by the school cafeteria and pick up whatever I want between classes on my UD's and not have to worry about the macronutrients. I do eventually want to bring it down to more of a low-carb JUDDD plan, but for the first two weeks while I adjust to DD's, I'm cutting myself some slack and just eating what sounds good...within reason of course!

Things must be hectic at your house these days if homeschooling has begun. So much thought and work must go into that effort, but knowing that your child is truly learning and experiencing so much has got to be very rewarding.

You say that you are maintaining your current weight, so that is a good thing to have happen, even if you aren't losing weight at this time. I've maintained for periods between bursts of weight loss as I lost the majority of my weight, and I think my body really sort of liked doing it that way. LOL Or perhaps it just seemed easier to me somehow.. not having to do it all in one big continuous push.

May I ask how many calories you hold your calories to each day? What is your UD calorie ceiling, and how low do you keep your calories on your Down Days?

When you are ready to *really hit it* once again to accomplish a bit more weight loss, we're here to encourage you in any way we can.

Hi, dazy! None of us can truly state what you should do, or how various choices might work for you. We can't know at what level your bodies work to process carbs, how overweight you may have been and for how long, how sensitive you may be to carbs or may have become to carbs, etc.

My assumption would be that if you have been eating some fruit and grains (carbs) as you have been following your HCG protocol, you have already probably *eased* your body back into accepting some carbs without reacting very violently. LOL You don't report having sick reactions, headaches, feeling like you've been hit by a truck, etc. Obviously all people have to be aware of their own health status at all times, and part of that awareness is monitoring how various foods make you feel, etc. But it sounds to me like you've been including carbs in your diet for awhile now, so having pizza occasionally or a great loaf of fine bread with a steak dinner at a lovely restaurant may not be a very big stretch for you.

I'm sure this is yet another YMMV subject, but for myself.. I enjoy eating at my mid-range of carbs, which allows me to enjoy some of the foods that had previously been *NO-NO* foods, and I hated that no-no concept.

Good luck to both of you as you go forward in your weight loss, and in your diet and daily menus. I hope and expect that you will be able to find a lovely balance of foods that will keep you both healthy and allow you to enjoy a wide range of food choices. All the while losing weight and then maintaining your losses.

Certainly for a lot of us, eating like *normal* people is a hopeful goal. We just have to remember not to go back to over eating, and certainly have to refuse to ever go back to eating our previous high carb choices very often. We're all smart enough to know what brought us to the place where we needed to face diet and weight loss. That's the kind of eating we must avoid forevermore. For the occasional person, perhaps it actually means no carbs forever. But that's probably not true for most of us. But remaining sensible about what we put in our mouths from this point forward, even on our lovely JUDDD high calorie UP Days, is only smart.

Good morning all!

Just thought I'd pop in and say hello

Today is my first official UD (the two days before my first down day yesterday were extremely filling and pretty much UDs thanks to working at a flower show which provided free biscuits whenever we wanted and a free lunch with flapjacks and muffins). Tonight, I am off out for a meal with the girls and I am delighted I won't have to worry about what foods I can and can't eat yey JUDDD! I am a very happy bunny!

I hope everyone is well and has a great day, up or down

I will tell you I think this is EXACTLY what happened to me! I was gaining weight eating VLC for quite a while trying to get off the weight I was gaining, but in reality I was gaining weight , I believe, because I had started dong VLC about 6 months ago. It was a vicious cycle it seemed with no end in sight except that I needed to keep lowing carbs, more and more, and it was only when I decided to try JUDDD and bring in much more veggie/fruits/grain carbs that the weight started coming off and is staying off without, it seems, no effort on my part anymore.

Just my thought and opinions, but not sure they are right and I'm only going by MY experience, nothing more.

Well, it's an DD for me and I'm grateful! I went to Atlantic City yesterday with the girls and being an UD I decided to do the buffet in one of the casinos. The food was good and I ate things I haven't eaten in years, but the funny thing is I am finding when I do overeat now, or seem to eat way too many carbs or fat, it will run right through me and then my belly is upset for a time afterward!

I'm wondering if this is a normal thing since I haven't eaten higher carbs with higher fats in a long time? I am use to eating higher fats (good fats, that is) being on LC for many years, but not in conjunction with higher type carbs (bread, potatoes, rice).

This is the second time this has happened to me when I have, what I feel, overeaten restaurant food.

Any ideas, or opinions are greatly appreciated here. Even those about a possible medical issue that could be causing this?

I'm VERY tired, went to bed far too late after losing most of my money to the slot machines, didn't sleep well at all, and plan on an early night tonight. Hope everyone is well and having a great DD or UD!

It may be a case of what the elders would say about certain foods back when I was a child... *That's too rich for a little girl's system*...

It's only a guess, but I expect it's a case of your gut just isn't used to being hit with a lot of fat and carbs combined, all in one sitting. That it really was, in effect, too rich for this little girl's system. LOL That just isn't how you are used to eating anymore.

Just my guess of the situation. Hope it isn't a tummy bug. And sorry you lost your money to the slots and didn't come back with riches. But, other than losing your money and becoming sick, did you have fun?

We just found out today that my youngest who just graduated from college has been offered an to month internship in his field. Yah!! Oh yeah, it's unpaid, in a city where we don't know anyone, and his brakes on his car need to be fixed. It's 2 1/2 hours from where we live which actually is closer than where he lives now but still. It might lead to a job but it might not. Crazy. I guess it's good to do these things while you're young! It's really stressing me out because he is a typical stereotype of an artist. Not the most practical person. Although he is very frugal which he needs to be.

I have been maintaining but not going low enough on my low days. I also need to get out and start walking. The weather has been so great around here.

Hi everyone!!! Popping in to say hi. I dont get online alot so i probably wont post alot but i do read on my phone. Its a pain to post from my phone so i dont do that alot. Im glad to see so many people doing so well and enjoying the plan. Sohappy i think you are totally right about the carb sensitivity. I was afraid of carbs for years and then it stopped wroking for me and i decided to add some carbs. When i did i did gain for a bit but then started losing again. I did have to lower fat and lower calories when i increased my carbs but i felt so much better in the long run.
Beeb im so glad you hit your goal!!! That is exciting!!! Hopefully i will be right behind you.

I have had a bad week with having strep and everything. Even though i had a couple of DD's and they were good i have still gained this week. I think it was just being sick and my body fighting it off or something. Im hoping anyway. I was up 3lbs though with 2 DD's!!! Today was a great DD and i feel so much better so im hoping for a loss tomorrow morning.
I'm glad everyone is doing so well. I will post again tomorrow. I cant wait for my UD tomorrow and its sat so i will hitting the gym in the morning!!! I love it!!!

Hi! I'm new to JUDDD. I just started homeschooling my dd's this year and it really is pretty time consuming. We love it!! And I wish we'd started it sooner. But I must admit I underestimated how much of MY time it will take. It's so worth it!! It's good to see another HS fam here.

Yummo!! had some full fat fage yogurt too for a snack and I am making homemade chicken pot pies for dinner!
Cat-good losses for your first week. I'm happy for you!!

Pat-I agree w/ your thinking too. I too worry about metabolism and carb sensitivity. I have been LC (reasonably happily) for the past 8 years. But, when I do go off plan (birthday cake, anniversary meal, vacation indulgence- etc) the scale jumps up so high!! I can gain 10lbs in 2 days!!

It's too early to say, as I'm just about a week into it, but I have had some yummy higher carb things on my UD's and my weight is still around the same. Coming off of hcg I have a "window" w/i which I try to maintain. This morning, coming off my fun UD I am only 0.8lbs above my window. I expect tomorrow to be right back in my window.

So, my short term plan for JUDDD is: to maintain my losses, reset my metabolism a bit, keep going w/ the weight training to build muscle strength and reshape, and decrease my sensitivity to carbs. I have to say, only a week in, I'm maintaining, and while eating more carbs than I have in ages!! . Since I will be out of town next week I plan to try the same basic plan. My DD's may not be that low since I won't be at home, and can't keep track of things as easily. But, I will at least TRY to do DD's in between my UD's. I decided to do 3 DD's, 3 UD's and 1 mid day.

Sorry I haven't been around as much lately. Btw homeschool, packing for our CO trip Sunday, shuttling my kids to their sports, and working I haven't been around as much. I didn't even get my 2nd workout in!! Have a good night all.

Hey!

I was just wondering how many grams of carbs we should be eating on UDs for low carb JUDDDing? And what exactly do you ladies eat when doing low carb and JUDDD? I was just wondering because I looked at how many grams of carbs I was eating on UDs and it seems to be quite high.

Warmest regards,

Caz

I think you're going to find that there's no one answer - we're all doing things a bit differently. I know that Linda and Pat do a moderate carb JUDDD, and that works well for their bodies, whereas I do a lower carb JUDDD, and that seems to work best for me. My UD carbs are usually between 20 and 30 NET. Sometimes they're lower; they're never higher. However, I haven't adopted JUDDD as my permanent way of eating (although I may at some point). I still consider myself to be doing Atkins, and I've been cycling onto JUDDD (I've done it twice now, for about a month at a time), while still sticking to the Atkins carb restrictions, just to change things up and keep my body guessing.

Caz Mine are much much higher, but I am not trying to restrict my carbs at all. I would rather have carbs if I can... mine run around 200...

Morning ladies,
How is everyone on this Saturday? Its an UD, so I get to eat today, yeah! I was back down 1.2 from yesterday's weight, but still up a tiny bit from my lowest last week... but I have TOM coming, so I will take it and not complain, and eat today!! Supposed to be 80 here in Colorado today, so hopefully it will not get any hotter than that. I am so ready for fall!!

anyone doing anything fun this weekend? Just housecleaning and a bit sculpting for me I think. And exercise of course... interval running this morning!

Well have a great day ladies, check in later!

WOE: one day at a time!!
Start Date: July 14, 2003 - every day!!
Morning girls!!

Well, today is my 1 week weigh in and I'm 156.6. Not too bad, given I've enjoyed some good food this week. I was 154.8 last Saturday though. I'm hoping it's just a little water retention from adding carbs back in. I was hoping to have a bit of a drop since my overall calories for the past week are quite low. I averaged 1239 cals per day. My up days got up to 2000 and my down days were between 500-780. Overall, since I'm supposed to be eating about 2200 as my maintenance cals/day, I would expect some loss. Not a gain. If I were going to be home all week, I'd keep going and ride it out. But...

Here's my dilema:
I leave tomorrow for a week in CO. I am carrying on my luggage, so the scale can't come. So, I'll be in a hotel all week w.o a scale, dining out a lot. Since I'm so new to JUDDD and adding carbs back in, I'm considering going back to Atkins/LC for the week I'm away. This'll allow me to eat more each day and is pretty easy at restaurants. It'll also allow me to weight train any day I can get it in. It should also keep my weight steady (I hope).

The down side to that plan is that I won't be able to really eat whatever I feel like at some of the nice restaurants we'll be visiting. (dessert!!) I'm not sure I can plan an every/other day indulgence and do DD's out so much.

What do you suggest? I'd love input. Thanks!!

Hi all! I'm just feeling yucky today , but still wanted to check in and say hi!

I'm so darn tired from not sleeping on Thursday night and then last night wasn't any better because I stayed at DBF's house and his bed is terrible!

On the upside, I have maintained to keep my weight of 142.6 even with the big UDs I had this week! Belly is better, and I'm thinking that "the too rich for the little girl" thing that SoHappy said is very true. I think after SO long of having to watch the carbs I kinda went a little overboard. Lesson learned and well noted!

Wish I was feeling better to chat with you all, but I promise to catch up soon. Everyone have a great weekend, and be safe!

Looks like we're all busy elsewhere and not much news to post here. Some times it's a madhouse around here, and it takes me forever to get caught up reading everyone's posts, and then sometimes there aren't many posting, and we're all busy with our lives away from LCF.

We've been lazy today, eating high carb and watching college football on TV. The most important game was Iowa vs. Iowa State, which the Iowa State Cyclones won in the THIRD OVERTIME!!! Talk about exciting! Our neighbor is 80 years old and a rabid Hawkeye fan. DH is age 77, and a rabid Cyclone fan. I thought I really should call an ambulance comapny and have them on standby before the game was over! I figured one of the other of those two would have an attack before it was over.

All the windows and doors are open here, and I have the air turn off, but the fan is running to circulate all the air through the rooms. Glad to have pleasant weather and a little breeze coming in the windows. Be Gone, Stale Air! I hate a closed up house, but it's been so hot and so humid this summer that I couldn't stand to have it open, so I was ready to get rid of air conditioned interior air. I don't know whether there's anything to it, but I always think the *fresh* air is healthier. LOL Even though it is town air instead of country air.

I am in serious need of a good DD tomorrow, as today was a completely off plan UD, and I haven't kept track of calories at all. Hope you all followed your JUDDD Up Days or Down Days today better than I did.

Hey Pat, Yes, it was a busy day!! I had a little bit higher carbs than I was trying for, but not too bad!! I keep my calories at just under 2000 instead of closer to 2500 but I am still feeling bloaty and just know TOM is coming.. UGH! So its going to be a rough couple of days, and DD for me tomorrow too, probably a good thing! Hope you have a good tomorrow, since its pretty late and you might be in bed already!!

I'm on my fourth day of a ten day run of prednisone. No matter how aware I am of what this does to my appetite and how prepared I am with low cal/carb stuff in the house that "I'm going to eat it if it isn't nailed down" is starting to affect me.Doing okay :
M/1227/65, T- 708/24, W- 1227/65, Th- 498/24, Fri-1414/114, Sat- 892/70.
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.

Hi, BonnyLass. Sorry that you have to be on this round of prednisone. I know you are working hard to hang in there, despite the med raising your impulses to eat, and I think making a couple of big batches of sf jello is a good idea. The gluc powder doesn't make a solid gel that I've ever managed, which is why the extra thick flavored *glop* that you can create is called pudding. But it can sure stretch some of the things you make so that you can eat more but not add any more calories to your day. For example, when I make a shake, I make one cup of *nothing* by adding a cup of water to the shake, and then thickening it all with gluc powder. So it's my regular shake, plus a little extra flavoring for the water, and that extra cup of water with gluc powder. That means that cup of water is now flavored and thick, right in my shake, and helps fill my tummy for 0 calories.

Good luck with your days. I know you will be looking forward to getting off the prednisone, and I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that you do well.


E.W., I wonder if you took that med, if you would regain some water weight, but then just start from that slightly higher weight and begin to lose weight once again.. like dieters do on other non-low carb plans. Take good care of yourself.
