It's THURSDAY: What are you Eating Today?
 
Getting our daily menu thread started.

Today is a Down Day for me.

Breakfast: 1 mug of coffee with 1 tbsp whole milk & 1 tbsp half & half cream (30 calories)

Lunch: 2 egg whites and 1/4 C Eggbeaters, scrambled, a spritz of Pam oil spray, and 1 slice English muffin bread, toasted, dry (146 calories)

Supper: salad of 4 oz chopped lettuce & 4 oz chopped tomato with 0 calorie Walden Farms salad dressing, and 4 oz broiled tilapia on the salad (145 calories)

Evening Snack: 10 oz peeled & cored apples (about 2 apples), and 1 80-cal fruit yogurt (227 calories)

Total calories for this Down Day: 550 - Total net carbs for this Down Day: 68

IF, DD for me.

coffee w/ HH early this morning -- 80 cal

fasting the rest of the day except for green tea/water/diet coke

this (early) evening:

1/2 of my low cal muffin -- 62 cal
sandwich made with: 2 slices 45 cal sara lee bread, 1/2 a roma tomato, lettuce, 1/2 T light miracle whip, 1oz canned chicken. -- 143 cal.

total cal for the day -- 285

UD for me today. :)

B: coffee w/ 2 T of hwc, pineapple Chobani (264)
S: mini reese's PB cup (44)
L: 1 cup chicken breast w/ homemade blue cheese dipping sauce, 1 oz horseradish cheddar cheese, and a toffee almond crunch cookie for dessert (620)

That brings me to 928 calories, which leaves me 682 for dinner and snack later if I stick to my "set" ceiling of 1610. But here's the thing...I'm not really sure if I have a good idea what my UD calories SHOULD be. So far they have been 1476, 2051, 1344, and 1809. See? They're all over the place...but I've been losing very steadily. Not sure if bouncing around my UD ceiling is contributing to my losses or if it's just coincidence.:confused:

Suggestions, oh Wise JUDDD BUDDDs?

Stevie Renee 10-06-2011 10:47 AM

Diving right in...(thank you Pat for privately helping me. I appreciate it)

DD - my first one.

decaff with Stevia
water
filet mignon, super lean
grape tomatoes

Calorie goal on DD is between 370 and 700 - I am ok with that. There may be days I cannot super control the DD so best to not paint me into a corner.

Hey, Stevie! I wondered if you would be joining us shortly.

You don't have to worry about your DD calories immediately. Just do the best you can. Some of us have wills of iron apparently, and can do the 500 calories or less right off the bat. Others of us have to sort of ease ourselves down into it. (Like me. :o) But the better you can do it, and the sooner you can do it well, the better your rate of loss, of course.

Also, this is a plan that results in reduced calorie consumption for weight loss, but is quite different in how it works from plans that just have you reduce calories every day to about.. oh, say 1200 calories, and then hold in about that calorie range each day. With the JUDDD high calorie and low calorie days, you can truthfully average even lower calories than on a standard diet usually, lose weight faster, enjoy eating *large* every other day, and stimulate your metabolism to operate at a bit faster rate, all advantages over traditional reduced calorie diets.

Hope you love JUDDDing with us, and welcome!

I am making today a medium day, as I need to shift my days to account for some traveling I am doing next week. I will eat my usual DD menu plus some sort of nice extra this evening-- maybe some brown rice:

B: Starbuck's Grande Skim Dry Cappuccino (93)
L: Large romaine salad with mushrooms, shredded carrot, cucumber, celery and alfalfa sprouts & fat free Italian dressing (98)
D: The usual chicken and broccoli stir fry (356)

Something else to bring me up to 900 calories.

If I may suggest you do an average of all the totals and see if that is doable. BUT, if you are losing ok with the way things are, maybe just leave them alone? What ever feels right for YOU is what I would go! :shake:;)

Isn't it great we can move things around when we need to with our UDs, DDs, and MDs! And I just had brown rice for the first time in a long time a couple of weeks back and it taste like "heaven" to me!! I missed it SO much! :cry:

Thanks for the congrats on my nano second 10 pounds weight loss! :doh::hyst:

Stevie Renee 10-06-2011 01:09 PM

Thanks Pat. I value your posts!

Yes Beeb, awesome LCF poster she is:)

Hi all.

"...If I may suggest you do an average of all the totals and see if that is doable. BUT, if you are losing ok with the way things are, maybe just leave them alone? What ever feels right for YOU is what I would go!..."

Linda: I took your advice and found the average of my UDs so far. Funny, the average I ate on those days was 1670. I had set my ceiling at 1610. It seems like I'm naturally cycling my UDs around the 1600ish number. Funnier still, when I finished typing in everything I ate for the day, I ended up at 1612. My body is being uber-consistent all on its own I guess.:dunno:

So maybe I'll keep cycling my UDs too, to see how that feels...higher than my ceiling on one UD, lower than my ceiling on the next, once in a while right to the ceiling. It should all average out the same in the end, but I'm keeping my body guessing more in the meantime. :)

Perhaps this will be one of those *If it ain't broke.. don't fix it* things. We'll be watching how it goes for you as these days and weeks pass. Cheering you on! :clap:
