Day One done, and I'm under - will that be a problem?
I'm going for a limit of 500 calories on DD, but ended up with 354 today. It would have been less, I almost didn't need my third 'meal' but got twinges when I made DH a sandwich.

I'm not an "expert" with JUDDDing but I think it's totally OK to go under 500 for a DD ... it's on your UD that you shouldn't go under your calorie limit....
isn't it great ?! ;)

Correct, Annie. Originally science thought the only way to invoke the sirtuin enzymes was by a complete fast. JUDDD was part of the discovery that very low carlories have the same effect. Which means anything down to fasting will invoke the magic.

Congratulations, SummerAnne you have made a great start! :jumpjoy::jumpjoy::jumpjoy:

Great Job!

Question: I am on my second DD and woke up really, really hungry, is that normal? and will that change?

that sounds to me like you didnt eat enough protein yesterday.

Hey giggles, as DDs cause the sirtuin enzymes build up in the body, appetite suppression kicks in for many of us. That is a huge help on DD. Even if you do not get the appetite suppression, you should get better and better at figuring out what and when you can eat to minimize hunger.

Appetite suppression usually kicks in after two to four weeks of DDs.

That is great, most of us say 500 as it is doable. But less is great so long as you feel fine.

Great start!

Under on DDs is just fine. Some even fast on DDs, and Dr J states this is a great thing, if we can do it.

But don't forget to eat up to or at least near your UD calories. This is what makes JUDDD work the best.

I did get the book from the library, I just have no time to read it until I get two more chapters done in my online class so I'll be ready to study for the midterm.
