Starting JUDDD Sunday
 
Well, I guess its about that time to change my profile's WOE from Atkins to JUDDD. Starting Sunday, I'm switching to this WOE because it suits my lifestyle more. I've lost 10 pounds in a month on Atkins, but really its because I've been eating TONS of salads as my only meal for the day for the past month. Definitely not healthy or sustainable. Not to mention being completely unable to restrain myself from carbs on the weekends.. I'm almost positive my 9-5 desk job was a big factor in why low carb worked for me.. I never left my desk long enough to eat anything!

Anyway, JUDDD seems great for me because there are certain foods that I just cannot give up (pizza...mmmm).. but many days I can eat like a bird and be perfectly fine.. yesterday I was craving chicken broth all day and that was all I ate, one cup at dinner.. I've always been tiny my whole life but had a hypothyroid issue pop up about 9 months ago and put on 30 pounds in no time flat. The best thing about JUDDD is that I can see myself doing this indefinitely, as a way of life.

I'm liquid fasting right now just to clean my body out from all the crap I ate this weekend, not to mention a Navy ball on Saturday that I need to somehow drop 5 pounds for to fit into my size 4 dress.. hehe.. ANYWAY, my main reason for this post was to post the calories the JUDDD site spit out at me.. 313 for a DD and 1566 for an UP.. The 313 is fine, as I can get by sipping broth all day with no problem (I've done this many times), but the 1566 seems a bit high and hard for me to hit on UD, so I'm gonna slash it to 1200-1230 and see where that gets me. Its a learning process..

I just started JUDDD over the weekend and my UP calories seemed high too so I cut 200 off and I'll see what happens and change it if it seems I need to.

Good luck!!

:welcome: and very nice to see you joining us! :shake:

OK, now I'm going to say this: DO NOT SLASH those UD calories!! :down: JUDDD is a science and for that science to work you NEED to stick close or right at both calorie ceilings for your UDs and DDs. It's the case where LESS IS NOT BETTER! I always suggest to find a way to get those UD calories right up there, especially in the beginning.

PLUS, eating good on your UDs helps to trigger the "not hungry" feeling on your DDs.

Please try JUDDD the way it's suggested, and after the first 2 weeks if you want to tweak, tweak but please give this WOE a fighting chance by doing what is suggested.

It DOES work, if it's worked the way it's suggested, believe me! :up::clap:

Thanks Linda, I will follow the 1566 UD calories then.. encouraging me to eat MORE calories? No complaints here.. If I'm ever having trouble getting up to that 1566, there's plenty of Reese's in the freezer.
