Down day (500 cals) for me and I'm going out to lunch with a fried so this could be tricky.

B: Coffee with half and half
L: Either a side salad or maybe a chicken sandwich with no mayo?
D: A snack if I have any calories leftover

sophiethecat 11-01-2011 07:05 AM

DD here.

B - black coffee

I need to try something different. I'm going to try to save over half my calories for later tonight, if I can.

kel7298 11-01-2011 07:14 AM

I am going to shoot for a "whole" day DD as I have been MUDDDing.

B - 2 coffee with FF 1/2n1/2 and 1 with SF Nestle (115), Dannon yogurt (50) = 165

L & D will depend on if I can push thru lunch without anything (keeping my fingers crossed)

shari 11-01-2011 07:53 AM

2muchme 11-01-2011 09:43 AM

UD!! Had breakfast for a total of 549 already!! Have to be careful here!

Going out to dinner with friends so that should leave me with a pretty fair amount for lunch....not sure what I'm in the mood for though. Will have to think on that.

2muchme 11-01-2011 09:47 AM

Oh, by the way, my first ever shirataki noodles arrived yesterday. To celebrate I made a not-mac and cheese from a recipe on this site - hit the spot and filled me up. I don't know who gave us the recipe - but I'm sure you know who you are - and I want to thank you. I will keep the recipe around and repeat!:D

betty301 11-01-2011 10:06 AM

I'm getting really good at fasting. Not sure if that's good or bad.

I don't normally eat til 2 or so on a DD. I have a pot of veggie soup going and will maybe have a cup or some of chili DH is making for dinner.

I love DDs. It's weird lol

Haha, I kinda love them too now, so I guess we're both weird! :laugh: I've got mine all planned out and really maximizing the food for the calories! :high5: I love my DD foods - I've started using the same ones over and over that I enjoy the most - they are like comfort foods to me.

Enjoy your soup! I'll be having some later too.

paulabob 11-01-2011 10:30 AM

Lunch - chicken liver pate with cheese crisp crackers (600 cal)
Snack - coconut oil bark with pecan (350)
Dinner - burger patty with guacamole & salad (500 cal)

I love up days! Might have room for dessert after supper if I'm hungry for it. So stuffed right now I can't think about it.

avecrain 11-01-2011 11:31 AM

I think I'm doing a fasting DD today. 2:30 PM and still feeling excited by the idea of it, so I think it'll stick. I have a big pot of peppermint and green tea brewing. If I do want to eat later, I'll eat a can of tuna with a tsp of mustard and some old bay after my walk.

sophiethecat 11-01-2011 02:22 PM

Oh dear, about 3 p.m. I just started suddenly coming down with nausea. It kept getting worse and worse until I took to the couch about 3:30 and I have remained there for the last couple hours. :sick:

I tried to sip salty beef broth but soon found out I hate beef broth... I guess I haven't drank it by itself since I was a kid and I didn't like it back then either. Thought my tastes would have changed though. It's too bad, because it would have made a very low calorie drink on DD.

Anyway, I'm just trying to hold on and hope this passes soon.

It's shaping up to be quite a low DD. :stars:

synger 11-01-2011 02:26 PM

Had a super UD yesterday (too much apple vodka while handing out candy), so was definitely looking forward to a DD today.

Haven't been very hungry really, and no hunger-induced headache, which is great. I had a bit of cheese early, and some almond milk in my coffee. I ended up eating my lunch salad over two hours (lettuce, cabbage, celery, w/ a pickled egg, four green olives, and a tablespoon of ranch dressing w/hot sauce), so it's almost 5:30 and I'm not even thinking about dinner yet.

Dinner will be some roast beef I made yesterday, and probably green beans or butternut squash. I need to eat up the squash.

Expecting about 500 calories. Have some gluc gelatin in the fridge if I do get hungry this evening.

Aww, sorry you're sick! :hugs:

Cruzcrzy 11-01-2011 03:39 PM

So far, so good DD. I fasted until about 3pm. I am at about 335 calories now. I am not sure if I will have more today or not. I am "planning" on another DD for tomorrow. I need Thursday to be an UD, so it just made sense to try this. It may end up a middle day, but, am shooting for a DD.

Sophie- I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I hope it passes quickly.

Paula - LOVE your avi. You are lovely!

sophiethecat 11-01-2011 04:06 PM

Thanks, Paula, Marie, everyone :love: :) Thankfully it IS getting better.

I just ate a can of Progresso Lite soup and 2 slices Nickell lite bread, toasted, spread with a swiss cheese wedge. :heart: My favorite DD comfort meal :heart:

Up to 368 calories. If only DD were this easy without feeling sick, lol.

Paula, I love your new avatar pic!! :sing:

Cruzcrzy 11-01-2011 04:12 PM

Sophie, glad to hear you are feeling better.

I am up to 460 now, so done for the day. I had some tuna with a bit of mayonnaise. I thought the protein would be a good thing.

Low Carb Librarian 11-01-2011 04:31 PM

Hmmm... Went some over my DD cut off today ... Should have never bought those mini rice cakes! I think I over estimated how much half and half I used today, so I could still be close in my calories for today. But it is 4:30 and I can't eat until tomorrow ...
:(

Dottie 11-01-2011 04:37 PM

I went a few cals over with a carrot and a peach, but overall a great DD and I got a good workout in that, I'm sure, negated those calories!

emky 11-01-2011 04:50 PM

It was supposed to be a DD for me, but a good friend needed support and convinced me to have a liquid lunch (and subsequent greasy dinner) with her.

A bit of vodka and that one meal was all I had today, so I'd call it a medium day. Tomorrow will be back to my regularly scheduled DD.

kel7298 11-01-2011 05:33 PM

Tried for a DD but couldn't do it.

Total for the day - 703 calories

Kelly,

that is a good down day. Don't be too hard on yourself. Many people start at 700-800 and work their way down eventually.

700 cals is a perfectly fine DD! That's what I'm at today, and I'm happy with it, even though it's 100 more than I had planned.
