I have so many typos these days. I use an ipad as well as my laptop and I forget that the laptop doesn't correct my spelling in the same way. But I have always written ahead of myself, if that makes sense.

Hi I'm new just found out about this juddd today and im definatley gonna give it a go . After losing around 15 kgs i am stuck at the weight i am now and have been here for ages , i did go to the gym 3 times a week with a trainer and shaped myself much better but the weight has stayed the same. Oh well at least i looked better and measured 20cm less, brilliant. These past 2 weeks i have'nt been to the gym and i have stuffed my face with whatever i can find mainly sweet things. i have put weight back on but im too scared to get on the scales. so tomorrow i will start with a DD could someone tell me is it best in those first 2 weeks to go straight onto shakes and bars as stated on the website or can i make my own meal as long as its at 500 cals. thanks you all seem so nice and helpful

Marni.

Make sure you have really good nourishing and enjoyable Up Day today which will help with your DD tomorrow. But not one of those, 'I diet tomorrow so I must empty the house of food' days we all have had. Because the next day you can eat those lovely foods once more.

Generally on here we suggest using real food rather than the shakes and bars as long as you stick to the 500, as near as you can.It is generally much better to chew your way through a day that simply have a drink.

There are some who managed well with the shakes but I think most of us preferred to eat.

Glad you are toned and ready for the fun.

Hi All, I've been researching this woe for the past two weeks and decided to give it a go a week ago after I saw the health benefits that you can gain from a tv program released in the UK.

The first week hasn't been that bad and I've dropped 5lbs, but i think that on the up days I've not really been eating enough and to sustain this woe over time I think I will need to up the calories eaten. I've got one week left of the restricted calories on down days so I thought I would join a forum for added incentive and motivation.

All your stories are very interesting and I am looking forward to being part of this group.

Sue.

Have you been to the Dr Johnson's Alternate Day diet site? That gives you suitable UD and DD calories based on your age, weight and height.

Lots of Newbies joining from the UK since the Horizon programme.

WOE: JUDDD dd 200 ud 1200
Start Date: Aug 2012
Hi there!
I'm new to JUDDD, love the concept! I've been on so many diets, some for health, some because of the 'crowd' I fell into, lol! Vegetarian, Raw Foods, Meat and Potatoes with darling husband of almost 25 years. Since my children were born, I've been having a lot of fun eating all kinds of 'kid food'. The weight crept up slowly until I was quite heavy, that's when I was diagnosed with cancer. Also, my vitamin D levels were way low, I think those two things pushed my body over the edge. I lost some weight during treatment (a few years ago) but it started slowly creeping back up.

Have heard about fasting and life extension for a long time, and tried to cut my calories. I think this may have upset my metabolism - no matter how much I cut and exercised, the scale would not budge. A couple of months ago, DH mentioned what about Low Carb? Long story short :-) I began to experiment with some of the recipes and the scale started moving!!!!! So, I started Atkins Induction and lost a few pounds, then I saw this JUDDD file, and have been doing both for the last week or two.

I'm really happy with this woe, it's the first time I've ever been able to lose weight! Saw the video about fasting - interesting in the last part that the researcher who was doing UDDD said it didn't matter what people ate on the UD. Love the flexibility of the concept! I'm hooked!

Looking forward to sharing with ya'll,
~Pamela

Hello Pamela, and I am so pleased to see that you have already started and are enjoying this wonderful way of eating.

TH Horizon programme inspired a lot of people and has made it much easier for those of us who have been doing this for a while.

I look forward to seeing you on the boards here. Tomorrow we will be starting a September Newbies thread and it would be great to see you posting there.

Question

Hello, I'm another newbie. My name is Jo, 55 years old, 5'5", 132 pounds. Just finished a round of hcg a couple of weeks ago, one more week of no sugar, no starch before the hcg protocol permits me to add back in those things. I'd like to lose another 7 pounds to get to my goal weight of 125.

I've been reading through some of the posts and I'm very intrigued by JUDDD and I think I'd like to try it out. Here's my question - I am going on vacation in 19 days (Vegas), and our vacations are typically eating bonanzas. I want to be fairly free with eating on vacation. Should I wait until after vacation to try JUDDD, or should I go ahead and start (and if I should go ahead and start, should I wait until after the final week of no sugar no starch from hcg)?

I appreciate your help!

Jo

Hiya Jo and to the forum! You will absolutely love this way of eating! I myself have done a couple of rounds of HCG, then found out about JUDDD and decided to give it a try in April, after I had completed phase 3 of my second round. I lost a total of 11 pounds that month, but got inpatient and wanted to do another round! Well after about 2 weeks I could't stand the vlcd anymore and came back to JUDDD, been here ever since and loving it!
Well, regarding your vacation, if it was me, I would just wait to start the rotations til after vacation, but that is my personal opinion, I am sure the more seasoned JUDDD/HCG vets will chime in soon and help out!

Hi! I survived my first dd yesterday. Had no headaches, was able to fast until 5pm. Only struggled when I saw food (had to prepare food for my kids) and felt abnormally short tempered though... Does anybody else experience this? Should I eat more? Had bit of chicken breast and broccoli for supper with family. Weight in at 141 pounds this am!!!!!! Lost a total of 3.7 pounds!!!! I can absolutely do this! Not as hungry today as I expected, but trying to nourish my body for tomorrows famine.

Hi
I decided to start JUDDDD from tomorrow. I have been calories counting the last 2 weeks and can already feel my will power sliding I've got the book and have started to read and have had a look around the web at what people have been saying about this and I think it will really suit me. Especially as I have a lot of weight to lose and so will be on it for a long time! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all x

Yet another newbie

Hi

This is my third week on juddd. I have tried the south beach diet before, with success, but because my eating pattern has changed (I have been eating much healthier later) and my age has increased I can't lose any more weight using the SBD, so I looked around for an alternate diet that would be easy to follow as I work full time and have no time to prepare complicated low carb/low fat/low cals/low taste meals.
I have to say I struggled during the first 2 weeks, my energy levels went really down and I had to keep on fighting the craving for food. I exercise 3 days/week (cardio + a bit of muscle building). I'm doing the 'light' version of judd: I have 3 DD (monday, wednesday and friday) and 2 UD (tuesday and thursday). During the weekends I eat what I would normally eat (still healthy, I don't overeat but I probably go over my 1400cal allowance for UDs).
So far I've lost 3lbs (which I'm very happy with) but I'm yet to feel all that energy that people on this forum talk about.
Is it normal to feel tired and sluggish during DDs even after 3 weeks on judd? I'm not sure I can stay on judd forever if I keep feeling like this. Any ideas?
I'm keeping my DDs on 400cals, eating small portions of cucumbers during the day (together with lots of water and fruit tea) so I can eat most of my calories allowance at dinner. Is there a way to boost my energy levels on DDs? Any help is welcome!

Thanks,
Pat

Hi Pat
What if you had maybe a 100 cal meal during the day and a slightly smaller dinner? I'm new here but it seems to be about experimenting within the calorie allowance till you find what you can live with.
4 DDs isn't 'light', it's a brilliant commitment! I'm sure you'll find something that works for you, with the help of the lovely people on this forum.

Hi! I've just realised this isn't the September Newbies' thread so I thought I'd say Hello here.
I've been JUDDDDing for just over a week and am still finding my way around the calorie thing, having been seriously resistant to counting them in the past. Well, what a learning adventure! Who'd have thought that 4 oatcakes and a bit of cheese would total more than my whole DD allowance??!
I tried low carbing earlier this year and found it hard - I don't eat meat. I also put on 5 lbs, so I was looking for something more suitable for me.
First goal is to get out of the 140s and I hope this can take me to the low 130s and help me stay there a while. I'm only 5'2" and should ideally be in the 120s.
I've really enjoyed lurking on this forum and reading your stories and advice and I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with you all.

everyone. I really hope you will all enjoy JUDDD as much as I do.

As to boosting energy levels, well, of course everyone is different and we are seriously restricting our calories on our DDs. This is one reason that it is quite important to eat well and nutritiously on the UD.

In the early days it can be worth 'forcing' yourself to eat up to your UD cal allowance, just so that you are feeling well nourished to get through the DDs. I hope this may help.

You could start a thread asking this question and I know a lot of regular JUDDDers will do their best to help. Not everyone checks the Newbie threads.

JUDDD newbies: introduce yourselves!

Hi there--I've been a "lurker" on LCF and especially JUDDD since January. I had been doing Atkins (whole foods approach) for almost 2 years before that and (like so many people here) had stalled. I thought I would try JUDDD as an experiment to see what would happen, and I was able to break through the stall the first week! Unfortunately/fortunately, we relocated for the 2nd time in two years February; with all the chaos related to the move, job changes, and a nasty foot injury, etc., I really struggled to stay on track...they weren't just UUAD's, they were UU and Insane days... So I went back to low carbing last week, and restarted JUDDD yesterday with a DD that I was most pleased with. I'm introducing myself here in the hope that with the incredible support of the JUDDD Buds and accountability I need, I will be able to meet the goals I've set for myself...
