WOE: JUDDD/PHD, LC now that my BG is getting weird
Start Date: JUDDD - 1/1/12 + intermittent LCHF
1. Did you start losing right away on JUDDD (within days or the first week?) Yep, three pounds first week.

2. Are you happy with your rate of loss/maintenance (feel it's a fast or at least acceptable rate of dropping pounds... or that maintenance is "easy")
Ecstatic - 1.5 to 2 pounds a week, week after week, is so much better than I have done on any other WOE.

3. Do you eat vegetables and fruit daily?
Veggies - yes, fruit - one or two times a week

4. During WLM and/or maintenance, do you regularly consume any of the following, and if so, which ones:
I take resveratrol supplements
I have red or white wine (or port - yum) on UDs that fall on the weekend
-green or black tea - daily
-coffee - daily, lots daily


OOOO, tell us what you learn from this!!!!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

This is for all JUDDDsters, whether in maintenance or WLM.

1. Did you start losing right away on JUDDD (within days or the first week?)
No, I never lost on JUDDD, but I'm using it now for maintenance because of the health benefits (lost on LC fast-5)

2. Are you happy with your rate of loss/maintenance (feel it's a fast or at least acceptable rate of dropping pounds... or that maintenance is "easy")
No for weight loss, too early to tell for maintenance

3. Do you eat vegetables and fruit daily?
Yes to veggies, often to fruits

4. During WLM and/or maintenance, do you regularly consume any of the following, and if so, which ones:

-red wine, red or purple grape juice, red grapes, resveretrol supplements, white wine
-dark chocolate, hot cocoa
-peanuts, peanut butter
-red, blue, or purple berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries etc.)
-green or black tea
-coffee
yes to all except peanut butter, which I don't really like much

So why didn't I lose well on JUDDD? Not for any of the reasons that SoHappy suggested. I measured carefully (I'm a scientist; I know how to measure); I exercise a huge amount, but I only entered "light" rather than "heavy" into the calorie calculator. Etc.

The simple truth is that no single plan works for everyone, even if they follow it exactly--which is also true of low carbing. And that's not because people are not following the plan correctly; it's because we all have different physiologies.

I'm here because of the benefits of intermittent fasting and food cycling, and also because I want to see if I can use cycling and IF as a tool to allow me to incorporate more nuts, cheese, fruits, and veggies into maintenance.

Does it matter WHY?

That could be because they weren't measuring/counting calories as well as they should have been, so not holding to their needed calorie numbers well enough to actually lose much of anything.

Or it could be because they added carbs back into their diet after being off of them for awhile, and were gaining water weight at the same time they were losing fat weight, but the scale couldn't tell them that.

Or it could be because they actually were using a too-high UD calorie number for their situation after all. That speaks to the *average* of us, but can be off some for us as an individual. So perhaps they needed to bring that number down a bit, right from the beginning.

Or, perhaps they set it for a lot of exercise, and that most often gives us a whole lot more calories than we actually burn, so just gives us too many calories to begin with. LOL

So many possible reasons...

:
Sohappy, you don't mention another extremely important reason: any single plan is NOT magic, and it does NOT work for everyone, even if they follow it absolutely perfectly. I did not make any of the errors you suggest above, and JUDDD did not take a single pound off me, after 2 careful months.

You and also stardustshadow were two who this didn't seem to work for, and I think you both were on it long enough to test it... and certainly doing it all correctly. It's like those of us who can't lose, or stop losing, on low carb when all around us are shrinking. So we start being very careful with the calories as well as the carbs, and that doesn't help. Who knows why?

This is for all JUDDDsters, whether in maintenance or WLM.

1. Did you start losing right away on JUDDD (within days or the first week?)

No, i havent lost anything.

2. Are you happy with your rate of loss/maintenance (feel it's a fast or at least acceptable rate of dropping pounds... or that maintenance is "easy")

I love this woe. I havent lost weight but i have maintained very easily. I have added carbs, which i havent eaten in years. I would love to lose about 5lbs but just cant seem to lose anything. I dont know what the problem is. This may just be my set weight or i need to lower my UD calories. I dont know. There are times i get really frustrated adn feel like giving up but most of the time im loving eating normally too much to change anything right now.

3. Do you eat vegetables and fruit daily?

I eat vegetables everyday. DD or UD i love veggies. Fruit i eat mostly on UD's, apples, grapefruit, a banana once in awhile.

4. During WLM and/or maintenance, do you regularly consume any of the following, and if so, which ones:

-red wine, red or purple grape juice, red grapes, resveretrol supplements, white wine
red wine, once in awhile, i have used resveretrol but dont know why, i dont think it does anything
-dark chocolate, hot cocoa
85% dark chocolate, unsweetened cocoa for shakes, coconut bark and hot chocolate. I have used the hot cocoa mix a couple times but not much
-peanuts, peanut butter
I use natural peanut butter sometimes in my coconut bark or the occasional piece of toast, i have powdered peanuts that i use in yogurt and to make OMM's. I eat peanuts in mixed nuts once in a while.
-red, blue, or purple berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries etc.)
Strawberries sometimes
-green or black tea
both almost every day
-coffee
yes, yes, yes, at least 3 to 4 12oz cups per day, with 1 T either fat free half or regular half and half depending on if its an UD or a DD.

Tiva, i think im like you in this it seems.
I am measuring as well as i possibly can, very obsessed about it. I count everything.
My DD's are very good. Between 300 and 500. My UD's are under 1900.
I have added some carbs but i see some of the carbs some are adding and it has amazed me they are losing. I have, at the most, had 150g in one day.
It baffles my mind why its not working for me like it has some others.
I try not to stress about it and enjoy that i am eating more foods i like and not restricting so much and try to tell myself that this woe is healthy but there are times i get very frustrated when i see the scale staying within the same 5lbs every week and not budging at all.

I wonder if the people who aren't losing are just at their body's set point. Do you notice any changes in your body structure? Looser clothes or decreasing measurements.
Another thing I think about is that I will probably never get all the way down to where I want because I was so big for so long I'll always have extra skin around.
I'm accepting of that fact because I am soooooooo much healthier, happier and yes, more attractive as I've lost weight.

1. Did you start losing right away on JUDDD (within days or the first week?)
At first, yes. Then I plateaued because of excess calories and carbs on UDs. When I lowered my UD calories from 2200 to 1800 (still VERY doable) and began enjoying my carbs in smaller portions, I began to lose again.

2. Are you happy with your rate of loss/maintenance (feel it's a fast or at least acceptable rate of dropping pounds... or that maintenance is "easy")
I was plateaued for over a year on LC, after having lost 40 pounds. Anything that gets me losing again, I'm happy with. 1 pound a week is perfectly fine with me.... that's over 50 pounds by this time next year!

3. Do you eat vegetables and fruit daily?
Pretty much, yes. My staple DD lunch is a big salad with a pickled egg, and most UDs I end up eating veg with my dinner. Fruit not so much, but that's the season. I don't really like citrus that much. But when the berries start coming in, and then the stone fruits? I'm gonna be loving them!

4. During WLM and/or maintenance, do you regularly consume any of the following, and if so, which ones:

-red wine, red or purple grape juice, red grapes, resveretrol supplements, white wine Red wine. I don't like juice or grapes. And I prefer dry red wine to whites
-dark chocolate, hot cocoa Some chocolate. NOt so much cocoa
-peanuts, peanut butter Definitely. They're one of my go-tos when I need a quick snack or a bit of extra calories
-red, blue, or purple berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries etc.) When they're in season, definitely. Sometimes frozen, but not as often.
-green or black tea Definitely
-coffee Definitely

OK, this is very very informal, unscientific, what-have-you, but I was just trying to get an idea of how real-life JUDDDsters on this forum are doing, eating, etc. and if there could possibly be anything that makes a difference.

If at all possible - and from another angle than usual - I was wanting to help out those who are having a difficult time at first seeing losses, or who were on the plan for more than a few weeks without losses. I wondered why some JUDDD buds lose right out the gate, others take a few laps (weeks) to get going, and unfortunately, a few never do.

The thing is, there are soooo many variables, not the least of which are different people's metabolisms, how their thyroids are working, blood sugars, etc. etc. Also a few just had their calories too high on UDs at first. And there are a lot of individual things I didn't account for, but again, this was just me wanting to glean some info out of curiosity. It's no scientific study, there are flaws, flaws, flaws. lol. The least would be mistakes in copying the info and figuring it up. So this is very loose for what it is. OK, that out of the way...

I was just thinking on Dr. Johnson's promotion of resveratrol and thinking on other things I've read that also said resveratrol/polyphenols can either help activate SIRT1 (and other sirtuins) or help them activate faster. This is just ONE PIECE of a very huge puzzle and no guarantee it really matters at all.

But for one example, one thing Dr. J has on his site: Resveratrol can also turn on the SIRT1 gene, or the "skinny gene." As this gene is activated, specialized proteins are formed that protect cells from free radical damage while improving fat metabolism. This process produces effects similar to those produced by a calorie-restricted diet, a method that has been shown to improve health and prolong life in virtually every species that has been tested.

I still didn't take it in supplement form since I drink wine. I just didn't think it was necessary. Not that a supp. wouldn't work, but again, the wine. You know how companies will isolate one nutrients from a whole food... I don't know, but I wonder if it would work better in tandem with the rest of the food it came from. You'll read something like, "it would take 20+ bottles of wine to get the same amount of resveratrol we used in the studies to be effective." But I just wonder if that is really so. Can the body can't utilize very tiny amounts of something when taken in conjunction with all the other parts of the food? That involves sometimes hundreds of other chemicals, antioxidants, etc. in that that may all work together? You know they have said too much beta carotene supplement or vitamin A can be bad, but then most of us don't know anyone who overdosed on it from foods. So I'm just saying that eating the whole food (or drink) instead of pill form may be just as effective or even more effective than the pills of isolated substance. That's my opinion though, and I'm no scientist or doctor!!

One other example on polyphenols and SIRT1 comes from this pubmed article: Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) is known to deacetylate histones and non-histone proteins including transcription factors thereby regulating metabolism, stress resistance, cellular survival, cellular senescence/aging, inflammation-immune function, endothelial functions, and circadian rhythms. Naturally occurring dietary polyphenols, such as resveratrol, curcumin, quercetin, and catechins, have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties via modulating different pathways, such as NF-kappaB- and mitogen activated protein kinase-dependent signaling pathways. In addition, these polyphenols have also been shown to activate SIRT1 directly or indirectly in a variety of models. Therefore, activation of SIRT1 by polyphenols is beneficial for regulation of calorie restriction, oxidative stress, inflammation, cellular senescence, autophagy/apoptosis, autoimmunity, metabolism, adipogenesis, circadian rhythm, skeletal muscle function, mitochondria biogenesis and endothelial dysfunction. In this review, we describe the regulation of SIRT1 by dietary polyphenols in various cellular functions in response to environmental and pro-inflammatory stimuli.

I was wondering whether some JUDDDsters were having more of these resveratrol/polyphenols... even already had been having a "build-up" of them while LCg before coming to JUDDD. Did it make any difference? Did the people consuming these foods/drinks lose faster right away (sirtuins activated faster/stronger) and did the people having less of them take longer to start losing (sirtuins activated slower)?

I don't know. This little survey was fun and interesting, but I don't know that this info helps anyone like I'd hoped. But here it is below, for your interest.

The foods/drinks I listed are common and known to be some of the highest in resveratrol/polyphenols.

30 people were polled.
22 of the 30 lost weight right away and continued to lose well/maintain well.
8 of the 30 did not lose right away or did not continue to lose well.
24 out of the 30 are happy with JUDDD.

Losers and maintainers both will be called "losers" to make it shorter.
Those who didn't lose or in a manner acceptable to them will be called "non-losers" to make it shorter.
"Regularly" means daily or every other day.

Things Losers (22 people) have in common with each other:

20 have vegetables and/or fruits regularly.

19 drink coffee regularly.

14 drink tea regularly.

10 have a resveratrol drink/food/supp regularly.

10 have a dark chocolate/cocoa product regularly.

10 eat berries regularly.

7 eat peanut products regularly.

Things Non-losers (8 people) have in common with each other:

7 have vegetables and/or fruit regularly.

8 drink coffee regularly.

3 drink tea regularly.

2 have a resveratrol drink/food/supp regularly.

5 have a dark chocolate/cocoa product regularly.

4 eat berries regularly.

3 eat peanut products regularly.

I must say that's what I first focused on as well! I'm quite happy to have finished the day at 650 calories *including* my half bottle of Cote du Rhone, more reason to keep it up!!

This may just tell us that regardless of whether you do or don't eat/drink much of this or that, you will either lose or not lose.

Unhappily, so much/many of the resveratrol studies were recently discredited that the value of that product is under some/a great deal of question. Not that there's anything wrong with it... just that it may well not be much of a miracle driver after all. I posted an article recently about the scandal.. something like, *There goes Dr. Johnson's business..* or something like that. LOL

And there is so much more to this than just the simple stimulation of activity in the area of SIRT1. I'll bet we will be following studies on the science behind weight loss for decades yet, just to scratch the surface.

Plus, food in our diet is so much, much more complex than just a single ingredient or so within the foodstuff. For example, you can eat an orange or pop a vitamin C tablet, but the orange gives you a bajillion more various micro-nutrients than just the vitamin C. That's why I think eating the whole foods is always the best choice.

I think *they* believe there are still tons of little micro-nutrients that are in our veggies and fruits that they haven't even discovered yet.

Thank you for your little informal study. I enjoyed taking it and reading the replies of others.

Since the Sample sizes were so different, I had a challenge in doing direct comparisons, so I broke it down by percentages.

Based on that data - a lot of the items were very similar in percentages - (I.e. fruits/veggies 91% to 88%, Coffee 86% to 100%, etc...)

Only 3 stood out as having a fairly significant difference.

The losers tended to consume higher percentages of tea and Revesteraol products (64% L's to 38% NL's and 45% L's to 25% NL's) and the non losers tended to be higher in their consumption of chocolate/cocoa (45% for L's vs 64% for NL's)

Things Losers (22 people) have in common with each other:

20 have vegetables and/or fruits regularly. 91%

19 drink coffee regularly. 86%

14 drink tea regularly. 64%

10 have a resveratrol food/drink regularly. 45%

10 have a dark chocolate/cocoa product regularly. 45%

10 eat berries regularly. 45%

7 eat peanut products regularly.32%

Things Non-losers (8 people) have in common with each other:

7 have vegetables and/or fruit regularly. 88%

8 drink coffee regularly. 100%

3 drink tea regularly. 38%

2 have a resveratrol food/drink regularly. 25%

5 have a dark chocolate/cocoa product regularly. 63%

4 eat berries regularly.50%

3 eat peanut products regularly.38%

To the point that was made originally, though, this is unscientfic and has lots of unaccounted for variables, but is still interesting, nonetheless!

WOE: Perfect Health Diet- 16hr Daily Fast
Start Date: JUDDD - 2/01/12 Began at 200, Goal 130
I would love to know if the non-losers, (ones who have not lost anything) but are still following JUDDD due to the health benefits; are seeing a remarkable health difference and/or if they are very close to their goal weight?

I have noticed that my own mother who is 72 and has been doing CR for the last 15 years, looks very young for her age and seems to be in general good health. Very thin, almost underweight, but she seems to stay healthy. She has chosen this lifestyle, simply because she doesn't cook and lives very simply. I used to worry about her a lot and then I realized she is so much healthier and younger looking than many others her own age. She eats one meal a day and probably no more than 800 calories, if that.

I think we need to plan a nice Christmas/New Year's trip to the land of Oz, so we can enjoy our chilled wine on the terrace in the blazing summer heat while we open gifts/ring in the new year!

WOE: JUDDD
Start Date: eating lowcarb since 2005
I have wondered about the set weight too. I have been lower than this though. When i got below 140 i was way too thin and looked anorexic which is why i wuold love to be between 140 and 145 and just cant seem to get there. I do have excess skin so i know i wont be able to get much lower than i am now. when i go too low i just lose the weight from my upper body and look awful. My excess skin is in my thighs, butt and tummy so my lower half wont get much smaller. When i did manage to get to a size 4 in the bottom i looked way too skinny up top and as soon as i started lifting some weights and actually eating a little more healthy instead of starving myself i quickly put on about 10lbs and went up to a size 6 to 8. If i want to look healthy in my upper body then my lower body suffers from it. I cant get both, which really sucks. I exercise 7 days per week and feel i eat pretty well, definitely not any worse than some that are doing juddd and i just cant lose on my bottom half without my top half suffering if that makes sense. I like having muscles in my arms and my shoulders looking great. I wish there was a way to spot remove but there isnt so i dont know what to do except just accept me where i am right now. Everyone says i look great but its hard for me to see that because of the excess skin and in my mind the more i lose it will go away but in reality i know thats not gonna happen.
I know the sirt1 gene has to be active in me because i have major appetite suppression on my DDs now. I am only having about 300 calories on my DD's and started at about 600. I never experienced this kind of appetite suppression even in ketosis. I love that and i love the way i feel. I love being able to eat some carbs now so all in all i am very happy even if i dont lose anymore but i still get frustrated once in awhile.
This survey has been interesting and ive enjoyed reading everything. Thanks sophie!!!!

WOE: LC..My "Don't Have To Think Because It's Simple"!
I have some questions sparked by my readings online, if you will humor me. Nothing formal here, just my own curiosity at work, and thought this might be interesting.

This is for all JUDDDsters, whether in maintenance or WLM.

1. Did you start losing right away on JUDDD (within days or the first week?) Yes and lost everyday. Now, in maintenance, I lose the same 1 to 2 pounds every other day.

2. Are you happy with your rate of loss/maintenance (feel it's a fast or at least acceptable rate of dropping pounds... or that maintenance is "easy") Very happy and I think maintenance on JUDDD is SO much easier than on any other WOE I have ever done. It's so easy I now have no calorie counting free days for my UDs and as long as I stick to my DD calories I stay my goal weight or below.

3. Do you eat vegetables and fruit daily? YES, THANK GOODNESS! These were the things I missed the most doing LC/VLC and now that I can have them I eat them all the time, everyday!!

4. During WLM and/or maintenance, do you regularly consume any of the following, and if so, which ones:

-red wine, red or purple grape juice, red grapes, resveretrol supplements, white wine No wine, but do have a Rum Cosmo on Saturday nights if I go dancing.
-dark chocolate, hot cocoa Milk chocolate every UD and hot cocoa very seldom.
-peanuts, peanut butter Only once a week. These tend to make me gain because I eat too much!
-red, blue, or purple berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries etc.) Yes, but only in season and only local grown.
-green or black tea YES
-coffee YES

In my case, I bet you're right about this. I'm now pretty thin for my height and weight, and I wanted to lose a few more pounds just so I could get back to my pre-menopause weight and back into size 6s. To do that, I needed to starve, so I finally decided it wasn't worth it (the days when I lost weight on JUDDD were the days that I completely fasted. That works great for some people, but I can't get much work done, and I'm only slightly less addicted to work than I am to coffee, exercise, or dark chocolate, which is saying something.)

It's great that JUDDD works so well for a lot of people!

I usually do 0-calorie DDs, but this may be something to look into...

WOE: JUDDD for life, baby!!
Start Date: Feb 2009; RESTART: Nov. 2011 as EX-LCer
1. Did you start losing right away on JUDDD (within days or the first week?) yes--4 lbs. the first week

2. Are you happy with your rate of loss/maintenance (feel it's a fast or at least acceptable rate of dropping pounds... or that maintenance is "easy") Yes--very. The only weight loss that was slow or non-existent was when I wasn't paying attention to my caloric intake. I just wish I had been more careful--I probably would have lost much more than just 13 lbs. by now
3. Do you eat vegetables and fruit daily? I eat lots of veggies on DDs, and I eat fruit every day--in fact, it's one of the things I like about this WOE, because I eat more fruit and veggies

4. During WLM and/or maintenance, do you regularly consume any of the following, and if so, which ones: YES to these: red wine, red grapes, resveretrol supplements (I was taking these before I started JUDDDing),
-white wine
-dark chocolate
-red, blue, or purple berries (blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries etc.)
-green or black tea
-coffee
