The weight differences in oil, water, wine, etc might not be drastic in small amounts.
A gallon or five gallons, though, would probably show a difference.

ETA--ha, Georgene! You beat me to it!!!
Well those are the quantities of wine I drink! Now I have to refigure my calculations!

First week's JUDDD done and DH and I have both lost 5 pounds.

Can't say I'm finding it easy and couldn't cope with shakes for induction down days so have gone for vegetable based meals instead.

BUT, it's obviously working

WOE: Atkins/hCG/maintaining EASILY with JUDDD
Start Date: 09/04/03
I'm happy to have only gained four pounds of water weight after a very enjoyable "free" weekend. It'll be gone in two or three days, I have no doubt. While maintaining, I'm not going to let those water pounds bother me. As long as I'm back to below my goal weight by Saturday morning (and I have no doubt I will be), I'm golden!

WOE: No Diet = No Stress! Just eating healthy!
First I want to say I admire all of you who are feeling discouraged, overwhelmed or having a hard time getting back in the groove for NOT giving up!! JUDDD gives us the freedom to "mess up" at times and also the wonderful opportunity to get back on track when we are ready to get to our weight loss/maintenance goals again! You all can do this so stay the course!!

I would like to report that after the "abundance feast" I had yesterday I am only up 1 pound to 136! A good DD will take care of this and when I think back on all the fun, laughter and GREAT food I ate yesterday I am just amazed (as I have been since starting JUDDD) that I get to enjoy my life and eat the great food I love and STILL be able to stay at the weight that feels right and healthy for me!

I'm just always in awe of this WOE!!

Kate and Julie: congrats! Great numbers.

Laurie: Glad you enjoyed your weekend and the freedom to eat! You are right, you will be back down in no time.

I am motivated to get to the gym this morning. I am planning to do one hour of cardio on the elliptical and then one hour of strength training. After that I have a bunch of errands to run including grocery shopping. I probably won't check back in for several hours.

Hope you all have a great day!

siked so far

day 5 of JUDDD for maintenance
yesterday was a - DD

Goal weight - 122
LDW - 119.0
Last DD weight - 120.6 (saturday)
(I will only be weighing the day after a DD)

Today's weight - 118.8

difference from last DD -1.8


breakfast
protein shake with 1 scoop protein, 1 cup almond milk, flavored water, strawberries and splenda

Lunch
protein shake with 1 scoop protein, 1 cup almond milk, flavored water, strawberries and splenda

Dinner
8 oz NF greek yogurt and 3 oz of blueberries


Snack
Okay once again went a little crazy here.....1 tootsie pop, some crackers and some corn chips (not counted in calorie count:giggle)

Calories 598 protein 46% Carbs 39% Fat 15%


Well I know I'm not staying at my 500-600 goal for a down day but I must say I am pretty siked so far. I'm going to hold my excitement for at least a week to see how this continues but I must say that if I can eat on my up days and not suffer on my down days then this may be a great way to maintain. Holding my conclusion until I have more data.

I'm just excited to think that I can have possibly a free day on my birthday and go right back to the rotation and maintain. Wouldnt that be GREAT?!!!!

Checking in here.

Another new low today (love when that happens)

193.2 (after an UD, woohoo)

I am almost positive it is because I started going to the gym again yesterday.

Today heading to the gym after I drop off my kindergartner at school and will be meeting with a personal trainer for a free half hour intro session. Excited to find out what I will learn, time to start working on increasing muscle and tightening some things up.

Deb, I KNOW you can eat on your birthday and take the water weight right back off. Trust me on this.

Haven't been on for a bit, and have a lot to catch up on, but I've hit a new low this morning, and couldn't be more pleased, especially since yesterday was an UD.

I was fairly satisfied with maintaining since I was just about 3 lbs from my ultimate goal, but jeez, what a surprise!!!

Deb, so happy you're posting, and more happy that you're seeing some success.
Yes, it would be great, and in fact, it will be great to have your cake and eat it, too! A lot of us have gone off the deep end with our cravings only to bounce right back with a DD or two.

Wow! Great first week, Kate. Congrats!

Very few of us have done the shakes for induction. We couldn't stand the hunger pangs from using them for our meals either! Most of us want real food that we can CHEW!

I do want to assure you that it does get easier. First of all, I think our brains just get used to this new routine of eating, so complies by adopting the new eating cycle to the release of our *hungry* enzyme, so once that's all back in sync, we don't feel all that much hunger on the DDs. And, of course, those wonderful UDs take care of themselves!

And then too, we try various things for our DD meals and finally find out just what foods do the best for us in helping us feel satisfied and that sustain us comfortably. And that's just a matter of seeing whether you do best with flesh protein, or veggies or whatever.

Congrats, once again, on the good job you've done so far and your wonderful success! Once you've got the initial difficulty of doing the DDs settled with, you're going to be golden!

And here's another thing that I have found fascinating about JUDDD. For so many of us, after we've been doing JUDDD for awhile, we find there are very few *cravings* left. I guess it's because there's no real need. For the most part, if you crave it, you can eat it. Unless you have some underlying health issue that precludes you from eating certain foods, such as diabetes calling for holding carbs down or an allergy to shellfish demanding that you pass by the shrimp salad.

So while we are freer than ever before to eat whatever we wish, we now find we can delight in foods of all kinds and not feel the compulsions to go too far overboard on much of anything.

And now we are getting the reports of folks finding themselves far less sensitive to carbs when they do JUDDD than when on other plans. I suspect it is because of the fasting aspect of JUDDD and its power to reduce the degree of metabolic resistance many folks suffer from. We become more sensitive to insulin and our bodies respond to it in a far more normal manner, as it is designed to operate. Interesting observation from those who can eat a bit higher carb on JUDDD and still see great blood sugar results. I'm going to try to find more studies on that.

Thank you for your reply Yes, hopefully it will get easier and I'm starting to experiment a bit more with down day recipes. Made a chili with Quorn (micro-protein) for tonight and have an egg-based main meal planned for Wednesday. I'm interested to see which foods prove to be the most satisfying.

The WOE is really suiting DH and he's already talking about this being a permanent life-style!

Thank you all here, for the recipes, menus and ideas. They are proving really helpful!

This rings so so true for me.

My carb sensitivity is diminished to the point that I feel comfortable enough to say 'yes' to just about any food, but oddly enough, I end up saying 'no'. That's because the choice is now mine to make!

If I still want it another day, it's all up to me!

What a liberating feeling!!!

Same here! Not to mention my "calorie sensitivity" has diminished too! In other words, I can eat higher calories now in maintenance than I was in weight-loss mode, and not gain... in fact, sometimes losing more. JUDDD heals a lot of things.
