I need HELP!
 
I want to change my days but im not sure how to go about doing this. If anyone can help me out with this it would mean the world to me....Thanks

Depends when you need to change them for!

Basically - I would work it like this:

DD, MD, UD, DD

however if it is coming tomorrow and today was an UD - I would just go:

UD, UD, DD


When you can plan - it's a good idea to swing in a Medium Day to alter your pattern.

Personally, I can't do a DD after a MD - but some people do - so that may also help.

Aagh - I think I've made no sense!!

Vicky has it right. What day do you need to be a UD and we can help you line up your exact days?

I need Friday to be an UD.....I was wondering if I could do an DD after a MD or should I just do and UD after a MD..... Im so lost....

Keep your normal DD, add a MD, then do an UD and your pattern will be changed.

Think of it by sizes, small-medium-large, or in alphabetical order if that works for you D-M-U.

Ok, so they I assume today is a DD?

M: DD
T: UD
W: DD
Th: MD
F: UD

You'd keep with the same rotation, but make Thursday a middle day, meaning a day where you eat an average or your UD and DD calories (UD+DD) / 2. Then Friday is a UD, Sat a DD, and so on and so forth.

I hope that helps!

I've tried doing DDs after MDs and for me it does not work! I think my body rebels and lets me know that MD calories are just not enough to get me through the DD and it always turns into a MD or an UD and then I'm all messed up.

I agree with Dawn. DD/MD/UD is the 1-2-3 order that works best for me. And the low/medium/high order is a great reminder!

Thanks everyone for all the information. I will be doing an UD after my MD....Yall are the best!

Think, "Small, Medium and Large," as a memory aid. Down Day, Medium Day, Up Day. Like the others have said, doing a down day after a medium day may leave you feeling too hungry, as you haven't properly fueled up the day before.
