Two DDs in a row?

I don't have the book, so wondered if someone here who has it would please check and see if Dr. Johnson addresses doing two DDs in a row? For sanity's sake, Tuesday needs to be an UD, and the only way I can figure how manage it is to do 2 DDs in a row once a week. Thanks.

Better not to have two DDs in a row. For one thing, it's easy to get so hungry you crash and burn. Why not just insert a MD into your rotation every two weeks? What will your day be tomorrow? And UD, or a DD. Let's figure from there.

In the book he does address someone wanting to always have the down days on the same day, and it was basically mon/wed/fri down days, the rest up (I think?) I don't remember if the two-in-a-row were up or mid days, I don't have the book beside me to check right now!

If Tuesday always needs to be an UD, then your rotation could be, for example:
Mon - dd
Tue - UD
Wed - md
Thu - dd
Fri - UD
Sat - dd
Sun UD
Or, if like a lot if us you wanted your Saturday to be an UD too:
Mon - dd
Tue - UD
Wed - dd
Thu - UD
Fri - dd
Sat - UD
Sun - md
A medium day is just the average of your UD and dd. add them together, divide by 2 and you have your medium day number!
And, if you can get through a dd, a md is a doddle!
Hope this helps!

Thanks for your replies. I hadn't realised that Dr. J. also has MDs in the diet. On the webpage he only writes about UDs and DDs. DDs are easier for me than UDs since I used to do h-HCG and have those recipes.

Saturday is not a "eating day" for me, only Tuesdays as I meet a group for breakfast at the cafe and attend Bible Study in the evening where a meal is prepared. As a diabetic, I have to be so careful of what I eat (even on UDs) that the Bible Study meal (including dessert) has become a special weekly treat. Plus the folks who prepare the meal are fantastic cooks and its a real pleasure to eat their food.

He doesn't. LOL The MD was a newer idea in response to problems people were having with the schedule endlessly making a DD arrive on the date of a big social occasion, etc.

I'm not sure, but think that Kevin Trudeau actually started it (maybe) in his diet (?) book, but anyway, it's a much nicer, neater, simpler trick to solve scheduling problems in our rotations. And the FD (Free Day) was a term I used as a hoped-for possibility for us at maintenance, when we've relearned how to eat without overeating and now have gained a pretty good feel for how our UDs should be for us.

I'm so happy for you to be able to alter your JUDDD rotation every two weeks with a MD so that you can enjoy your Tuesdays with a lot more freedom to enjoy the dining pleasures of that day as well. Sounds like fun!

He probably ammended his book then because he does mention in between days in the book I have, at the end in the frequently asked questions... so it's a later addition then?

Ya' got me. I don't even remember mention of in between days, but that would seem to indicate that they are certainly OK to use when the use works best for us. LOL

I noticed it in two spots.

1) For people who want the down days to fall on the same day every week, he suggests mon-wed-fri down days, and sat and sunday up days OR sat up day sun "in-between day".

2) If you slip up on your down day and eat too much. Then he suggests either turn today into an up day (and tomorrow a down day), or turn today into an in-between day (and tomorrow an up day).

Yeah, he definitely talks about them in the book from my memory! I read it in September. Just thinking I need to read it again because I know a lot more about nutrition after 4 months of dieting/diddling around on the internet while dieting.

Friday was suposed to be a UD for me but something came up and I just let it be a 500 calorie DD instead. It was a little harder than just doing one DD but not realy all that bad. But because I don't eat till after 1pm I sure was looking foward to eating yesterday.
And it suprized me that I ate no more than on a regular UD.

That's great to hear that MDs are good. I want to make sure that whenever I visit family/in-laws, I am on an UD, to avoid all the "blabla" lectures people like to give me about food and dieting.

I hear you there. It really gripes me that other folks choose to monitor what I eat and comment on it. It's none of their durn business. I'm diabetic and really get tired of someone telling me, "you shouldn't be eating that, should you?" I am a very well controlled diabetic and know what I can or can not eat at any given time. I don't comment on what others are eating, and wish folks would leave me alone.
