Ok, now what do I do?
 
I had to juggle days to get today, Sat and Sun to be UD's for planned eating out events.

Yesterday I did a MD.

Today was supposed to be UD, and it ended up a MD (1151 cals).

So not sure where to go from here.

Make tomorrow a good UD, Friday a DD, and then UD's for the weekend?

If I did DD tomorrow and MD on Fri (the original plan), then I have 4 low cal days in a row, and that doesn't sound good to me.

Help please.

No problem, and you have the right idea:

Tomorrow an UD, Friday a DD and then proceed with your UD plans for the weekend.

All done and it will work out fine because if you do any damage at all you can start to fix it on this Friday and then Monday and Wednesday with good DDs!

Enjoy the weekend fun!! :jumpjoy:

Thanks Beeb. I'm def one who has more trouble eating UP to my calories than eating down. Pre-JUDDD, 1100 cals was a pretty normal day for me. And it's why my metabolism is shot all to pieces too.

I feel like I'm just getting things on track, and I'm going to mess it all up already.

But it's just a few days, and I'll be back on track again. Whew.

Hi Tina, that plan sounds like it will work for you and you can enjoy a nice weekend then get back into the regular rotation. Don't worry, you won't be messed up - everyone has to deviate at one time or another, and who knows - a little shakeup now and then can be good for a person's metabolism. :D

Blessedly you can't get off track unless you step off the rails and walk away. I'm betting no more than two DDs next week will have you back to, or below, 130.

I find that I don't worry too much about mixing up my days to fit an event... I just get back to my schedule once it's done.

But I'm one of those who does the same schedule each week. M (UD), T (DD), W(UD), TH (DD), F (FD), St (UD), Su(DD)

So if I know I need an UD on Thursday, I might make W a DD, then TH an UD, and make Fr a MD instead of a FD... but then I'd get back into my normal rotation.

i want to do something similar; UD and DD on the same days of the week every week. but i cant figure out what a FD is. is there a list of acronyms around here anywhere?

FD = Free Day. Call it an Up Day + :)

gotsomeold 02-17-2012 02:33 AM

Free Day = eat what you want and only count calories if you feel the need to do so.

Free Days are reserved for those in maintenance, or for folks enjoying a wild-n-crazy vacation, or for someone experiencing a major life event that makes watching calories impossible.

To shift your DD/UD schedule, use an MD (Medium Day). Most of us calculate MD calories as (DD + UD) / 2 - the average of two days. Usually an MD is substituted for a DD then the rest of the schedule is flip-flopped. So, the day after MD is usually a new UD. (But you can flip-flop however feels best for you.)

synger 02-17-2012 06:17 AM

Since I'm not in maintenance, my FD is more like a... um.. I guess a MD with booze. :D It's not completely "free" since I do give myself a calorie framework, and I do journal what I eat.

I want to have a couple drinks on Friday night. But I don't want to mess up my weight loss. So I figured a way to keep my calorie average over the week to 1300- 1400 (enough for me to keep losing at my weight). 600 on DDs, 1800 on UDs, and up to 2600 on my Friday FD. I aim for 1200-1600 worth of food, and keep the rest for drinks. So the calories really fluctuate on Fridays for me from week to week. Maybe I should just call it my Booze Day (BD), but then we'd have ANOTHER abbreviation to explain all the time. :rofl:

Fridays are family night at our house, so it may mean pizza and beer, or it may mean Chinese and wine, or it may be roast chicken, veggies, and margaritas while we watch movies.

no FDs for me
 
at least not for a while. i think i will go with 2 DDs in a row to switch around days. it works for me to have my dds be the days i do pilates since it it easy to come home from class and not eat again. so yesterday was my first DD. i am down 4.4 lbs and it wasnt hard. of course i am used to eating less than 400 cals from doing hcg over and over during the last few years. eventually it stopped working. not the hunger part. it always works to kill hunger. but the weight loss really slowed down and i have at least 30 more lbs to lose. so i have been doing the Kruse reset since 10 nov and the benefits are great. not weight loss but otherwise great. and i think i can integrate JUDDD with that. still do a huge protein/fat load early morning.

thanks everybody.
