I"ve started JUDDDD...After coming home from Disney World I was weighing about 183...
Monday I fasted...so I'll count that as my first DD...yesterday I ate LC so I'm not sure how many calories...probably around 1500-1800...
Today is my second DD...I've already had about 95 calories in my coffee...I'm taking grilled chicken to school/work. I think I'll go by Kroger and get some of the LC 80 cal yogurt.

I've just got to do something. Last time I logged into ****** I was 149...although I didn't stay there for long. I had just come off of a 3 day fast...so I quickly got back into the 150's...but I feel great anywhere in the 150's.

Counting calories is something I've never done on LC...so this will be very new...and makes me very nervous...

Reading the posts on this thread have amazed me. I'm hoping this will work for me. I need something I can call my "lifestyle" not just a quick fix. I'm afraid to incorporate much carbs after reading Taubes, Eades and the likes of. I think I will attempt to stay LC...carb creep is a serious problem with me...it's so hard for me to be moderate.

I heard of some contest to eat a 5lb burrito somewhere...and I thought to myself..."I could probably do that! "

I truly think I could out eat just about anyone...I just don't get full...I hope JUDDD can help with that...

I look forward to reading and posting here!

Hello all! I posted on the newbie thread but thought I would post an intro here as well...my name is Karen. I have been doing Atkins since May 2008 and have had lots of success...but I go through periods when I'm just maintaining or losing the same 10 pounds over and over again. I have been trying to get below 200 since October of 2010, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw the 199.7 on the scale this morning.

I have been doing JUDDD for a week now and it has worked pretty well...the biggest benefit that I see is NO GUILT on the up days. Although I have lost quite a bit of weight over the past 4 years, I have spent much of that time feeling like a failure because I haven't followed plan to the letter...now I don't have to! I'm still doing low carb, but I eat the occasional apple, peanut butter, starbucks frappachino, etc. It's great!

Becky, Karen, you are going to have a ball here.

So many of us here have had the exact same issues with Atkins/LC. I did it for over 10 years and I understand exactly how you both feel.

Relax, rotate and rejoice! JUDDD is astonishing.

I'm hoping and believing that this will work for me. Frankly it sounds too good to be true...I CAN"T imagine eating on UD's and feeling so full that I do not wish to eat it all...BUt I will be so happy if my body can know when to quit...that's been my problem...out of control eating...

I'm very excited to be here and read everyone's stories!
Your numbers look quite high to me. Did you put in a LOT of exercise? Or perhaps, did you use the calculator in Kilos instead of Pounds (the default is kilos), and/or cm instead of inches? I don't want to pry or anything, but I'm much heavier than you and much taller, and my calories are quite a bit lower than yours. I'd love for you to have the best chance for making this work!

Hi there

Pat mentioned JUDDD in another thread where I'd posted, and I've scanned some of the posts and the JUDDD website before, but still pretty confused.

Is there an intro anywhere, or is the website where I'd get the basic info?

I'm currently doing IF for the most part, with very low calories most of the week and then eating higher cals and carbs on the weekends, so I'm not sure how much of a difference this would make weight loss wise. I'm assuming the whole point is to have a weekly calorie deficit, and JUDDD does that by alternating days to help with the psychological aspects. Or am I missing something?

I just had a look at the recipes for down days, and I wouldn't be able to make any of them on the first page due to products that aren't available here. So I'm guessing I would have to resort to not eating much of anything on the down days anyway.

Another thing--I've read several places where people talk about being able to eat whatever they want on up days, but there are calorie limits so it really isn't a question of eating whatever. And I'm assuming that if that's a higher carb day, then you have to deal with all of the hunger issues on the next DD. How does that work for you guys?

Thanks for the help. I'm sure some of these questions are answered in one of the threads, just not sure which one to go to.

Wanted to join in.

I started JUDDD this past Monday 03/19/12 after reading everything I could about it on here and other forums. I also purchased the book and have read it and was concerned about the diet plan portion of the book so I posted about that on here and received a lot of affirmative information that the plan in the book isn't the best. I'll stick to what I've learned from followig Atkins and reading Why We get Fat and Life Without Bread.

I done IF for about a year and a half and I really like only eating once a day. My eating window is from 6pm-10pm. I also follow a low-carb diet and I'm also trying to eliminate all wheat (I also read Wheat Belly, great book). I have done well with this plan and have lost 70+lbs but now I've stalled and I also backslide some during the holidays and wasn't following my plan and gained some back but I've relost that gain but I'm stalled again.

I'm going to stick with this plan but now I'm going to incooperate JUDDD into it and see if I will start losing again. According to the calculator my numbers are 2135/427 but I think 2135 is too high so I will adjust that down. I've also bought some shakes to have on hand for my DD.

KeirasMom, I wish I had read your post before I went to Applebees and orderd the fiesta Lime chicken!!! I've already exceeded my UD limit for today!

You are right, I entered my weight as kg instead of lbs...wouldn't it be great if those numbers had been correct...I was thinking to myself, "this is going to be a breeze!! "

Thanks for the heads up...I'm so glad I posted this question before too much damage was done! I'll be glad when my book gets here so I can really read up on this...

Hope you are still around and Here is a link to Ohio Guys most recent post.

any SERIOUS carb addicts able to stick to JUDDD ok?

And, yes. There are some who have lost a lot. If you can find a post by Leo, I think she has lost 200 pounds. Pretty amazing!

Plug your numbers and your gender into the JUDD website calculator. I think guys start with much higher calories for DDs.

WELCOME! And don't be put off by the convenience food stuff some folks eat on Down Days... many of us eat regular food, just less of it. For instance, my DDs usually consist of salad and broth for lunch, and about 3 oz of meat and some veggies for dinner.

Sometimes I add 100 calories of cheese or cream if I'm feeling extra hungry. I find that fat is satisfying to me (others find volume is, so they eat lots of low-calorie veggies, and still others find protein is, so they make sure they eat most of their DD calories in protein).

You'll find what works best for you!

WOE: JUDDD Newbie!
Start Date: March 2012
Hello. After finding out about JUDDD, I decided to give it a try starting last week. Im down 3 lbs in 8 days, so not too bad. I have a question for anyone who might know the answer, though. I have tweaked my UD/DD's so that they more closely fit with our lifestyle and so that I will have a much more likely chance of not having to switch days around in the future. If anyone has an opinion on this strategy, I would love the input. I want to do this the right way, but also don't want to set myself up to fail, so here it is (see below).

DD:Sunday 8p-Tuesday 8a (36 hrs, 500-600 cal.)
UD:Tuesday 8a-Tuesday 8p (12 hrs, 1500-1800 cal.)
DD:Tuesday 8p-Thursday 8a (36 hrs, 500-600 cal.)
UD:Thursday 8a-Thursday 8p (12 hrs, 1500-1800 cal.)
DD:Thursday 8p-Saturday 8a (36 hrs, 500-600 cal.)
UD: Saturday 8a-Sunday 8p (36 hrs, 2000 cal. spread across these two days)

Basically, I need my days to stay consistent (i.e., Monday always DD, Tuesday always UD, etc.) due to my schedule. I just want some feedback about how I'm handling the weekend. That was the only thing I could come up with. I have tried to keep it at 500 calories on DD, but consistently end up creeping up to 600, so I feel like that might be where I need to be, but not sure if it's too much. Also, should I try to stay closer to the 1500 or th 1800 on UD? I can really do either, but wasn't sure which number that "science" indicates would be in my favor. Again, thanks for any input that anyone might be willing to contribute )

Oobidoo, I'm curious where you got your calorie numbers. JUDDD gives a pretty set UD number which you get by entering all your statistics into the JUDDD calculator at Dr. Johnson's website. (ETA: This question was spurred by your 1500-1800 "range" for UDs)

It's recommended that you do strict UD/DD rotations for a minimum of 2 weeks - 1 month to get the SIRT1 gene fully activated before you mess with the rotation. That being said, some people have had success with a set schedule like you're indicating. The recommendation would be to have MWF DD, TWSun UD, with Saturday a MD (Mid day = UD + DD divided by 2 or the average of your UD/DD numbers).

Nobody really pays attention to the 36 hour/12 hour split. That happens pretty much naturally with the days. You will eat up to dinner on your UD, then 500 calories or so on DDs until dinner. That effectively gives you 36 hours fasting and 12 hours of eating.

I fear you may be overthinking it. Make sure you visit Dr. Johnson's website and read up there, as well as the stickies on this JUDDD forum. Pretty much all of your questions should be answered. If they aren't, by all means, post your questions. I'd recommend posting them in a new thread, so they don't get lost on this one.

I got my numbers from the calculator on the website. 1883 is my "target" for UD, but a couple of times I haven't gotten that much in. Are you asking because 1500 might be too little on that day? It hasn't been intentional to go less than 1800.. DD target is 471, so just rounded up to 500 and will try really hard to keep it at that. I know what the rules are, I guess I was just asking to see if someone else had split the weekend that way. I'm really not overthinking, just trying to be clear, I guess.

Exactly. I was worried you weren't going to be able to get enough fuel on your UD to carry you through your DD if you hadn't figured out your numbers. I overthink stuff, so I worry that others do too.

The general consensus seems to be to try to limit MDs but you could always try it and see if it makes your loss any slower. You may be just fine with it.

I think I'll try 1800 on Saturday and then 1150 Sunday since Saturdays will likely always be more chaotic than Sundays. If that doesn't work, I'll go back to the drawing board

Thanks for your help!

wanting to start

I guess I'll jump in and introduce myself as I intend to start the JUDDD diet woe. I've just finished my 4th round of hcg and lost a total of 115 lbs since the beginning. I started in a size 22/24 (260 lbs) and am now in a size 4 (some 6s just because of different sizing) 145 lbs. Oh, and I'm 5'6". I'm pretty much at goal, but I think I could lose a little more. Everyone else tells me that I should NOT lose any more weight.

I'm not sure exactly how to do this JUDDD thing at first. Should I do the induction phase of two weeks of 500 calories on the DD or should I go straight to the maintenance part? From reading several posts on here; it sounds like everyone just kinda does a trial and error thing at first.

I'm hoping that this woe will help me to maintain my new weight for the rest of my life!!!! (without having to go back on hcg or any other diet)
