taknig the leap...?

I have poured over this idea to make the switch from low carb to juddd for weeks. over the course of reading these posts and researching the internet I went from "no way- not for me"- to being pretty amped to try it. if its okay, i'd like to bounce my sample menu plan off you guys in hopes that you can give me some insight and maybe your experiences will help me steer clear of pitfalls. I am nervous to load up my house with UP goods that may turn out to be too tempting for me on DD so i plan to do a lot of eating out on up days and to stock the house with up foods that id enjoy but keep the stuff i know can cause a problem out of the house for now.

DD-
soups (low cal)
special k drinks (one per dd?)
air popped pocorn
watermelon
berries
zuchini
squash
saurkraut
chicken broth


I am more of a grazer and struggle with portion control and thought for me to be most successful is to have food on dd that i can have a larger portion of without going over my cals. and food that i like (popcorn, watermelon, etc)
Ive been on atkins since nov '10 and have not seen the results I was hoping for and im hoping something like this woe may help (hopefully it will help my sanity as well, im going bonkers on low carb, not to mention i dont particularly care for the most common low carb fare!) thanks for any advice!

WOE: Whatever plan keeps me around 150 lbs!
All of those items look good, but I would make sure to have plenty of protein available too. Everybody's different. Some need just the bulk of fresh fruits and veggies, while others need plenty of protein.

I fall somewhere in the middle. I enjoy the feeling of having something in my stomach, but it goes away too quickly without a little low calorie cheese, or egg whites, lean chicken, etc. to help me feel fuller longer, if that makes sense.

I've even been known to have a Wendy's chili for dinner on a DD because it has tons of veggies and meat as well. (210 calories for a small and feels so decadent on a DD!)

I am a big fan of overpreparing, so IMO it would be great idea to have some more options to choose from if you get too hungry with mostly plant life to munch on.

get some lean protein in there... protein shake, eggs, ham, chicken breast, turkey breast, tuna... I think you will be very, very hungry on that menu. But you can always try it and see, then just add some protein if you're too hungry.

i was thinking the same thing as you guys said-im super finiky when it comes to proteins and usually end up buying things i dont end up eating. Maybe some eggs and lean turkey deli meat would do the trick!

The most important thing is, you are planning! Just like with lc, never approach a DD thinking "I'll just wing this one." Once you begin, you will tune your DDs (and possibly your UDs) as you learn more about how your body reacts to food.

First to our wonderful JUDDD family!!

Some of us divide our meals up into calories, so much for eat meal with the total coming out to the calories we need for the day. Some do DDs this way, and some do both UDs and DDs this way.

Pat even had the brilliant idea of making 100 calorie meals and freezing them, kinda like a 100 calorie snack pack but in meal form, with all the meal's courses in one place. Just heat and serve! I love this idea and I think if may help you with portion control, too!

I would say the same applies to UDs. For me, even more so. If I don't have a solid plan they turn into all-day munchfests.

Welcome!! I am like you and am a grazer and especially at work. I sit at a computer all day so i need to have snacky foods around. I take a baggie with cut up slices of zucchini, cucumber, baby carrots, celery, maybe half a grapefruit or half an apple. I fill the baggie full of cut up yummy veggies. Its a quart size baggie and holds a lot. I also have found that having a little protein really does make a difference in my appetite and it helps with my energy. Also, since i have added some protein im not getting cramps in my feet and im feeling near as cold all the time. I make a egg white wrap in the morning. Its just 1/4 cup egg whites with a teaspoon of psyllium. Fry it in a small skillet and i roll it and take it to work in a baggie. Then i have a tuna pouch later in the day. The 70 calorie tuna pouches are wonderful!!!
Welcome to JUDDD!!!!

I've done DDs a couple of ways:
  • 100 calories each in the morning and lunch, and then 300 dinner
  • Just coffee until I'm very hungry (usually about 3), then 100-200, with 300 in the evening
  • 100 fat-full calories every 3-4 hours (cream cheese, cream in coffee/tea, macadamia nuts, sausage, brie)

I find I do better on the third one. The fat keeps the hunger down, and the richness feels decadent. The second one tends to make me struggle against binging because I'm SO hungry by evening that I want more than my meager allowance.

It also depends on whether I go into town for work, or whether I'm working at home. Version 1 is my in-town routine. Version three is my at-home routine.
