What are you going to do if Thanksgiving lands on a down day?

I haven't looked at the calendar to figure it out yet, but what are your plans if Thanksgiving is on a down day? Do you just indulge and then start back the next day??

No holiday or celebration or party or festival or special event ever lands on a Down Day! I see to that.

If Thanksgiving Thursday falls on a DD, that means that the preceding day (Wednesday) is an UD. What you want to do is push your week *further out* by one day and make that Wednesday's UD land on Thanksgiving Thursday instead. So..... When Wednesday comes, you turn it into a Medium Day. Calories midway between a DD and an UD. And then, the real Wednesday calories get pushed into Thursday instead, making it the new Up Day! Yay! And then Friday becomes a DD, and your rotation continues from there.

JUDDD allows you to be on a diet for weight loss at the same time it allows you to party and eat! Hard to believe. All it requires of you is to just respect your calorie ceilings, and it will do the rest to improve your health and slim you down.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

We're really not supposed to have two DDs in a row... and no need to either. Just insert that MD and shove everything one notch into the future.

Just what I did ^^^^ when I realized Thanksgiving was a DD. I put a MD in there 2 weeks ago to make sure when I got to Thanksgiving it was going to fall on an UD!!

MD's still confuse me lol.
Do you use them if you just messed up and overate on a DD?
Or do you use them when you're supposed to have an UD but just have no appetite?

You could make a botched Down Day into a MD, and then attempt the DD again on the following day. You shouldn't just skip doing the DD, attempting to fool your body by calling it a MD and *eh... good enough* and blowing it off. So you can use a MD that way.

And you could do the opposite, but it's really the best to try to keep most UDs up closer to the correct number. I mean, do you really think the calorie calculators are so far wrong that your maintenance number isn't even close to what they say? Those DD calories are set so low, they are intended to more than counter a full UD's calories.

And because DDs give us very little food, even when it is great food, we also get only a small amount of real nutrition. So on an UD, we're trying to get in the needed nutrition to cover TWO days, so to speak. I'd hate to have any of us have to use a MD in place of an UD very often.

And the rotation would call for that UD to be done the following day anyway, rather than just being skipped over.

Mostly the MD is used just to alter the rotation of our days with the goal of making a future date land on an UD instead of the DD as it sits right now.

This is what I do. It would be very hard for me to do down days on the weekends. My life just doesn't work that way. We are always out and about on the weekends, shopping, visiting friends and family, and going out to eat. We live 20 miles from town, and hubby is not the type to stay at home all day Sat and Sun.

As for the holidays landing on a DD, it just doesn't seem like a big deal to me. I'd just change the days up in whatever way suits me best. And if I end up with too many UDs in a row, I'll recover later, lol. I'm very flexible that way, and because of that I have slower weight loss. I have a hard time being very regimented with anything, and that includes a WOE.

I have had a couple of times that I skipped a DD and had 2 UD's in a row and it
hasn't seemed to be a problem then I am doing a condinced eating window so
that may make it different. I know thanksgiving will be an UD for me then I have
to go to a dinner party for a friend of mine that friday. Again I am not realy woried
about having another 2 UD's in a row then either I just need to make sure it
doesn't get to be a habit.

This is what I am doing, it just makes it easier to know the m/w/f is dd's and t/th is ud's.

You schedule would be like this

M: UD
T: DD
W: UD
TH: DD
F: UD
S: DD
S: MD

or

M: UD
T: DD
W: UD
TH: DD
F: UD
S: MD
S: DD

I do the exact opposite so that I am getting my DD's during the week and then my weekends are MD's and UD's

M: DD
T: UD
W: DD
TH: UD
F: DD
S: MD
S: UD

(or i will switch saturday and sunday and do sat UD and Sun MD, just depends on what is going on that weekend)

I do my official weigh ins on Saturday which gives me three DD's under my belt for the week.

You post made me laugh.. about the wings on Sundays during football season.

Isn't it amazing how you can arrange to eat, feast, celebrate with special foods for the occasion, and..... still be on a weight loss diet that is effective and making you skinny as the weeks go by? Hard to believe!

my DD's are 500 and my UD's are 2000 ( i aim for 1800-2000 but have been known to go up to 2200 and still lose)

I do my MD's at around 1000 but will allow myself to go up to 1200. Basically I plan for a 1000 calories but leave myself some wiggle room.

So yes MD is half way between DD and UD

It is, I can't believe it. I love low carb/induction but I need more variety w/o the scale remaining stagnant or going up if I eat 'off plan'. I'm sloooowly adding back carbs to see how my body tolerates it. This board has been a wealth of information.

Well, we generally gain a bit of water weight back if we bring carbs back into our diet, but I thought it was more than worth it, and relaxed when I realized that it was just water weight and not more FAT weight. The fat continued to melt away, so I was happy.

Maybe you could make one of the days an UD and the other a *slightly generous* MD and then Saturday could be a very good DD.

That way, you should have enough calories for each of the two days to be able to enjoy both celebrations.

For myself, Thanksgiving would be the UD because we eat the main big feast at midday, and then do it all over again on the leftovers for supper!

For my birthday the following day, for me that is usually just a single celebratory meal with cake and ice cream, so a MD would suffice for that and give me enough calories to enjoy the nice birthday meal.

Sounds like it's going to be a fun two days for you!

I'm another fixed-day-of-the-week JUDDDer. M-W-F are my DDs, T -Th are my UDs, and Sat-Sun are generally UD/MD. I may change that up occasionally, depending on what's going on. But, since I work M-F and I find it's easier to do DDs at work, I make 3 out of those 5 work days DDs. However, I have done a handful of DDs on a weekend, so I know it's do-able when I have to. So I won't be needing a MD to adjust my rotation...t-giving lands on a normal UD. But if it had landed on a DD, I would also (like other have stated) insert a MD.

You took the words right out of my mouth! I've completely FASTED on Thanksgiving before. Peeved the heck out of my Mother! But if the meals aren't anything special then it's no big deal. if they make mac and cheese once more, I might not even pretend to eat it.

Mac and cheese for Thanksgiving? How Boring, the Starch should at least be good meaty juicy dressing. Plus now that everyone realizes that cauliflower and cheese tastes much better than mac and cheese, they are on a low fat kick so I'm still not allowed to make it. . Boiled green beans, baked turkey, sugary cranberry sauce, Meh!
