MDs and holidays?

Hi

I've been reading through the forum and I have a couple of questions.

What is an MD - I know what it means, but how do you work out the calories? Also does it matter if it comes before or after a DD?

How do people usually deal with holidays? I'm going away for half-term and not sure the best way to handle it.

Regards

Bev

MD is your UD number + your DD number divided by 2 or an average of your UD and DD.

I've seen it recommended to do DD, MD, UD so you don't feel too deprived on the DD and so you can adequately fuel your body for the next DD.

I haven't used one yet, so maybe one of the experts will chime in.

My plan for this weekend (we'll be staying with my in-laws) is Fri-DD, Sat-UD, Sun-MD, Mon-DD. I think it will be okay because I've been doing this for several months now and have strong appetite repression on my DDs. At the very start I wouldn't have even tried because I was absolutely starving after a DD!

Knittering - it's good to hear the appetite reduces - today was really hard.

Can I perhaps just go into 'maintenance' for the week I'm away? I think trying to do DDs would be too difficult, with family breathing down my neck.

It will get easier, I promise.

You can. That's pretty much what I did for the week before Christmas -- I just wasn't up to explaining my new diet to my in-laws or trying to find acceptable foods at their house. I went up a few pounds but thanks to the magic of JUDDD, I lost those pounds after just a couple of days of my regular UD/DD rotation.

If you haven't been JUDDDing for long enough to activate your SIRT1 gene, I'm not sure what this will do to the process. Obviously maintenance would allow you not to gain most likely, but I think it would disrupt activation of the gene. I could be wrong though.

I thought the sirt1 gene activated after 2 weeks - maybe I got that wrong. Better read that part of the book again.

Yes, I think if you've been doing this for 2 weeks you should be okay to do 'maintenance' levels, provided you don't get upset if you see a gain of a few lbs.

You have to make this work for you and your life.

I wasn't sure how long you've been on JUDDD and when you are going away.

Just out of interest why do people gain on maintenance? I would have thought you would just stay where you are. Hope I'm not asking too many questions

Don't know if people do gain on maintenance.

My Mum - Kissa - has been maintaining between 123-126 for the past 2 months or so. I know I shouldn't be talking for her - but what she does is stays low on most DD and has Free Days. However, she doesn't worry if on a DD she goes up to 700 or so (maybe more on occasion and has an MD).

I am a lot heavier - and went on holiday for a week. I managed 3 of the 4 DD at round 750 cals - but the last one (last night of the holiday) was really an UD - 1750 - the next UD was high too - and I gained 3lbs - however - when I went back to strict JUDDDing - they were gone in 2 days.

So, if you do UD and MD whilst on holiday - with no true DD - you may gain a bit - not a lot - or you may not gain anything - thanks to the SIRT gene. Just be prepared for an initial bounce up - if it's not there good - if it is - remember it'll be gone in a matter of days.

MD are perhaps better called Medium Days - not maintenance days.

Hope this helps!

Maintenance is different from adding MD (medium days) into the UD/DD rotation. There are plenty of people here who are maintaining.

Well, I ended up just taking a break from JUDDD on the week away because it became clear that it would be nigh on impossible to keep the calories down. I put on a couple of pounds, don't know if they've come off yet as I only weigh once a week.

Do I need to be below 500 on DDs for 2 weeks like at the start of the diet or can I go a bit above? Today I've not been feeling well, I got about 3 hours sleep last night and a little extra would be welcome, but I want to make sure the Sirt is activated.

No, you don't have to go below 500 on DDs for 2 weeks again. That Sirt gene stays activated for quite sometime so no worry there. Just stay with your normal DD calories, eat good food, don't go above those DD calories and watch those little vacation pounds melt away!
