Hunger, workout
 
I have a bottomless pit of a stomach, lol. I think I have tried all the foods that are supposed to sustain, protein, fiber, drinking lots of water, dense vegetables, you name it. Even being in ketosis my whole Atkins Induction I was hungry!

I made it on my second DD yesterday @378 cals or something like that.
I actually was tired and quiet. Quiet for once, haha! I guess talking takes a lot more energy then I thought:p

Anyone else who feels like there is no full switch? I've always been like this.

I am doing a fitness bootcamp 3x a week in the AM for an hr, and then trying to run two days of the week, at about 4 miles at a time.
I am weight loss resistant, so I don't want to eat too many calories and not see results on DD's, but I also want to make sure I'm not erasing some of the workout effects and muscle building on too few calories. If I'm running 3 or 4 miles and choose protein for my DD calories (4-500), should that be sufficient?

Some days, especially "hormonal" ones! Since you're really pretty active, you may find you need more calories on the DD's to sustain you.

Yes..me!

I rarely get full....I can get "not hungry"..ie no rumbles, but I never really feel full. I only really know when i have had enough when I get an actual tummy pain!
I rarely get to this point though, I just try to stick to normal portions, what I "think" would make me feel full.
I have a long history of Ed's, mainly bulimia, and fear i have damaged whatever regulators I may have once had.
It is scarey sometimes...I think I could just start eating and never stop. This is why I love Juddd...every other day I have a planned "stop"...a DD of 500ish cals...and the reasurance of knowing that one UD will never just keep running.
Juddd is my control...I cannot do it by myself for any length of time...but Juddd gives me a framework, within which I can live.

what about eating 500 calories instead?

I, too, feel like I have a bottomless pit, but my relationship with food has improved over the years. I've learned to not be hungry when I don't want to be hungry, and enjoy eating a ton of stuff when I want to. Having calorie limits helps me to decide the appropriate times to eat and to not eat. Does that sound crazy? :stars:

I would go up a little of I were you. I without a lot and started at 600 to 700 and now im down to practically nothing. I never experienced appetite suppression on Atkins. Never. No matter of I was in ketosis or not. I have always been a bottomless pit too. For some odd reason I really don't have an appetite anymore on my DDs. This is the first time I have really experienced appetite suppression. I didn't eat all day today until I came home and made an omelet. I was amazed with myself. And im still writing out. I would up your calories just for a bit and then slowly start bringing them down.

I'm only on day five here. Must think,"2 weeks, 2 weeks". Being patient is not one of my strong points, but I'm pushing myself to stay with something and stick to it so I don't give up right before things happen! Something I think happens a lot.
Ok, so I'm back to a DD. I'm 146 this morning, and I'm jogging today. I'm going to eat my protein right after working out. Here we go!

You definetily should go up to 500 on your DD's but it sounds like you may even do better going up to as much as 700-800 based on how much you exercise.

I started off doing 500 DD's and a few times went below, then when I started adding long cardio sessions my hunger went way up, exercise does that. I have been successfully doing higher DD's with lots of exercise (at least an hour of cardio plus strength training every day). My UD's are around 1500-1700 calories and I am still benefiting from JUDDD.
