WOE: JUDD/starting 5/5/14 officially
quick question,,,,please first dd

Okay - I have only done a tiny bit of research and viewed some threads in this site...

I'm having today be my first DD - my question....

Do I begin counting the hours from last night after I ate? Meaning - I would begin my UD tomorrow... Generally going for 36 hours DD? (9pm last night - breaking fast at 9am tomorrow morning...)

Typing this - I think I just answered my lame question... yes - right?

Thanks -

Carry on...

Kim

Kim!! Great to have you here!
I do not count hours at all. On a UD, I eat as soon as I am hungry and finish my calories whatever time I finish. I go to bed, and the next day, a DD, I try to wait as long as possible to eat and finish my DD calories by the time I go to bed.
Hope this helps!

Sorted then! Enjoy (ha ha) your first DDs.

Actually I love the DDs, there is something very cleansing about them. Occasionally they are tough but as a rule I get through them with no hassle.

! I think your question has been answered and to add to this, most of us just end our DD when we go to sleep and start when we wake up. I have never counted hours, didn't even think to do that!

Enjoy your first DD and I PROMISE....they DO get easier with time! Now I my DDs for the simplicity of knowing what I'm going to eat!!

Kim!!!

I've heard Pat (our resident expert on all things JUDD) talk about the DD being 36 hours, so you are exactly right.

May I recommend that if your first DD gets tough and the tummy growling bothers you, have a spoon full of high protein yogurt (ff, plain Greek is the best) or a piece of chicken. Or, one thing I like is to take a piece of Foster Farm's Oven Roasted Deli Turkey Breast and roll it around some lettuce, chopped celery and sliced hot jalepeno peppers.

Even a small bit of protein (hard boiled egg or even just the white) will turn off the rumbles and make you forget about food for a while.

Another thing I have worked into both DDs and UDs as a great appetite suppressant and energy booster is to stir a rounded teaspoon of Extra Virgin Coconut Oil into a hot cup of 20 calorie Nestle's hot milk chocolate. Very yummy, soothing, warms me up and keeps me on track.

I find DDs very calming. My brain seems clearer and my happiness quotient goes way up! Keep us posted on how your day is going.

Thank you all so much! I have a bit of a headache right now. I suppose it will get easier, fingers crossed... Think I might hit the deli (sales rep and on the road) and get something. Feeling a little yucky right now. I had 2 ish spoonfuls of cottage cheese around 10:30am.

Anyone else feel this way?

Take care -
Kim

Kim!

Especially since you travel, it is a good idea to plan meals - even carry a cooler. Most of us find DDs get easier. Many of us prefer DDs - strange but true.

to JUDDD, Kim! Be sure to manage your fluids, salt and potassium on DD if you are experiencing headache and yuckiness.

Are you drinking lots and lots of water? If you are a coffee drinker, don't forget to drink your coffee. I always have 2 or 3 cups in the morning and I would never, ever think of giving up the tablespoon of half and half I put in each one. Sometimes 2 tablespoons. It suppresses my appetite and if I stopped I'll bet I would get a headache.

I have never felt bad on DDs. Not even on the first one. Not sure why that is. I do drink lots of water, though.

Listen to your body and don't do anything that makes you sick. Remember that you can go up to 45% and still be OK. Some JUDDers had to start at a higher calorie count in the beginning and work their way down to 500 or less.

Hope you feel better soon!

Kim, all of us are different, if you are feeling yucky and headachy, EAT something and definitely drink something.

I always recommend something protein based but do what you can.

It does get easier, I promise. Did you start with an UD or jump straight in with a DD?

The times I have had a headache on DD's was alleviated by drinking water. I just was a bit dehydrated. If I remember to drink a glass of water when I first get up, I don't get the headaches.

Thanks for asking. I guess I did jump into a dd - however I was really not watching what I was eating for a while. I was having constant cravings and was just going with them. I know how to get my mind over my cravings but I just was kind of giving up.

I think this woe will be a little of a mental challenge in the beginning - but I love (I think it is your quote?) that it is just a day away! I actually think doing this will be empowering!

Have a great Saturday!
