Thinking of trying JUDDD

Hi all,

I just got back into LCing last month and feel great. I'm drawn to JUDDD because the natural appetite suppressant qualities of LCing seem to have kicked in and some days all I want is one meal. I adore eggs and can easily see myself just eating eggs / Greek yoghurt / veggies on a DD.

My question is: can it really be THAT simple?

same here-- 500 on DDs and 1700 on UDs works fine. Just make sure you keep track of your cals.

Yes. It's simpler than I would have thought. It's actually kind of nice on the DDs to feel sort of empty and cleaned out. I was strictly LC before JUDDD, and am now enjoying incorporating SOME carbier items that I missed - like oatmeal, cottage cheese, tomatoes, carrots and beans, even an occasional muffin or danish. I wld have felt so guilty eating these on my strictly LC days. And it gets simpler the longer you do it because you start acquiring DD staple foods and meals that are your "go to" DD foods. Just watch the Up days. They can do you in if you're not careful. When I first started, my up days were sort of free for alls and I thought, well this JUDDD thing just isn't working - I haven't lost anything. Well, duh, once I actually started tracking my calories, like you're supposed to, and I took responsibility for how much and what I was eating on UDs, the pounds started to come off. I'm just 3 weeks in, but enjoying it more than I thought I would.

You should definitely give it a shot! The first couple of down days are harder but then it's smooth sailing. At least it was for me. It's so weird but I actually really enjoy down days! They are like a challenge and I feel light, skinny and "peaceful" on those days. At the end of the day, I feel proud and in control. Then I start thinking about the good stuff I will eat tomorrow (I don't low carb anymore). All in all, the DDs put me in a happy mood

I'm going to go for it. I have a weird feeling that the down days will be simpler than the up days. First DD tomorrow!

Thanks for all of your replies.
