What I like about DDs is...

Everything tastes SO YUMMY because I'm actually, truly hungry when I eat.
How about you?

What I like is I'm not hungry!! I have to remember to eat most times, unlike my UDs when I could eat the paint off the walls!

I also like having to be "inventive and creative" to get the most bang for my calories on DDs. I have eaten some pretty weird combos but they were always packed full of veggies and protein and VERY filling!

I like the feeling of hunger, I think, because I feel like some fat is burning.

I like the clear feeling I get when I'm around 15 hours into the DD. People probably get sick of reading my description, but it's like I can feel the inflammation lowering. And yeah, probably the fat burning too

My sinuses get clear, I can breathe easier, my mind is clearer, I get a pleasant body sensation, my skin looks luminous, my mood is calm and good, I'm relaxed yet alert and as though my senses are a bit sharpened. It's all subtle, but it happens every single time, and so I know it is caused by the fast, or near-fasting.

I savor every bit on a down day. Today I had a subway sandwich and it was so good. Food definitely tastes better on DD because I appreciate it more, I guess

Both days definitely have their strong points! I love the freedom to eat what ever I want on Up days. On Down days, I love how I feel lighter and thinner. It's like I can actually feel those fat cells meting and my stomach growls. And there's also the anticipation of stepping on the scale the next morning.

I love the true hunger feeling and really wanting to eat too - had a boiled egg this am - it tasted soooooo good!

Plus I like the challenge of keeping my cals low! It's still new days - but I know that once DH and I are back and living in our own place (okay rented - but you know what I mean) in Australia - I'll have some serious DD staples - to go to - so that I don't have to think too much - but for now - I love the thinking!

I, for one, do not get tired of hearing about your feelings on DDs! I actually experience the same 'calm alertness' and is one of the reasons I so look forward to the DD 'releasing days', as I call them.

I also experience higher energy levels.

My hunger on DDs has decreased substantially; I no longer need the Peppermint Oil!!!

I love the feeling of no heavy lingering food in my belly and no bloating and feeling lighter. My pants feel looser on good DDs too. I also like the feeling of hunger, and on a normal DD the hunger usually doesn't get too bad and I definitely enjoy that heightened senses feeling along with the calm. Sometimes I experience a pleasant dream-like and floaty feeling too. Not sure if that's weird, but I like it.

I also like the thin feeling. I feel sexy. I want to go get a tan. and some sexy clothes.

But I'm still over weight but I'm working on it.

And I feel great....

I know it sounds utterly silly, but it's true--
my handwriting is neater on DDs!!!

Maybe it's part of that calm-yet-alert feeling?
I'm all meditate-y and Zenned-out and stuff.

Well, well, well. I wish anything would improve my handwriting, it is awful.

I love that it is after 8pm and I still have 100 calories to eat, if I choose to.

I love that I have a lot less food to weight, measure, and prepare! My DDs are pretty simple and involve very little time in the kitchen.

I don't know why but I've been hit with a burst of strange great mood on DDs recently, when I've had nothing to eat all day. Sometime around the afternoon on DDs (like now, around 3:15pm), I'll feel strangely energetic and my mood soars, like everything is right in this world and I'm freakishly happy. It lasts for hours. Just now my coworker walked by and caught me singing, and I didn't even realize it. I was singing Make Your Own Kind of Music and she was like, "are you singing that song from Lost? Why are you in such a good mood???"

That's your body thinking you're starving and giving you a boost of energy so you can go run down a wildebeast or something for dinner. I get a lot of housework done when it hits!

Agree with all of you!
I have also really enjoyed the after dinner time on DDs. I am slightly hungry and so excited about the next morning - both the weight and what I will eat for breakfast!
Only thing I don't like is that I have a little trouble falling asleep on DDs. I seriously think it's fat burning - a superior form of energy.
Can't wait to see how things evolve for me as I do this longer.

I have to admit--I am 55 yrs old, and in all my years of WW (3 different times) and LCing (about 12 years of that), etc, I have NEVER been excited to get out of bed and see what the scale says--until JUDDD!

Yeah - today is a DD, and this morning (after an UD) I was only 1 lb. over my low of the day before, so I know tomorrow is going to show me something new. Wheeeeee!

I guess I hit the "wildebeast zone" tonight

I got a rush of energy this evening after a day of running around. I made two dinners (DH's for tonight and our dinner for tomorrow) and I was still bouncing around, so I made snicker-doodles for DH while he put the Christmas tree up. I wasn't even tempted to eat a cookie because I realized I can have one or more tomorrow!

I'm starting to get why this WOE works....

I just noticed this too!

When i was losing weight, i did UD/DD rotations, and would start my DD food about 12pm.

For the last few weeks, as I am in maintainence, I have been doing FD/DD rotations...and have found, after a FD...i can go way longer without eating....up until 5 or 6pm. And at around about 4-5pm, i get a weird kind of high....a kind of endorphin rush or something, and just feel really happy and content.
I still eat my DD calories after this time, but the long stretch of not eating certainly has some definate effects!

hugs
Jo
