Yay! I think it's working for me too!
 
this is my 7th UD.... This is the first day I've Felt appetite reduction... And a really good energy level!

I hope this a sign of the magic starting to kick in!

I've had about 300 calories today... We are having company tonight for supper...I am still a little unsure about carbs and all...but I definitely feel better about things than I did last week!

:jumpjoy:

Great to read threads like this! I'm so glad you're feeling good and succeeding on this woe. :high5:

I'm so happy to hear this is feeling like a good day for you, Becky. It does sometimes take a little while for JUDDD to *get to working* and then it's very nice.

It sounds like it's all beginning to kick in for you now. Hope you are doing well and will be very, very successful here with us!

Becky: This is great news and I think you are right about the sirtuins beginning to kick in. YAY!!!:jumpjoy:

I just posted something to you on my crockpot oatmeal thread. Hope that's ok!! I remembered you saying several times about having a big appetite and was thinking of you while reading Hofmekler's book.

How are the DDs going?

Yay! So glad to read this. Enjoy your dinner!

Yam, I can't say I enjoy the DD's more...but I can say they are easier! I like cauliflower and brocolli...I cook them and spray no calarie butter spray ...salt & pepper...that's very satisfying to me. I also have a Kroger's Carbmaster yogurt...

I haven't settled into a favorite UD routine yet. Wednesday I came home and binged like you wouldn't believe. I was so disgusted with myself. It was a very UP - UD!! The scales showed me the results the next day.

I am reading Brain over Binge...hoping that will help me. Today is an UD and I feel really good...

I read The ALternate Day diet book..."Monotony in flavor is helpful in reducing how much you eat"..."I would suggest that you find 5 recipes of the low-calorie-density food that you enjoy and can eat over and over" (p.25)

That resonates with me...I like "old faithful meals" that work for me...I haven't found my favorites for UD's...but I will.

Thanks everyone for your support and encouraging replies!

I'm off to read your oatmeal thread post!!

WTG, Becky! :jumpjoy: It's that old JUDDD magic building up. :high5: Most of us still experience the occasional "eat down the house" DDs but that seems to be mostly related to hormones or extra-high carb consumption on UDs, among a few other causes. (I just wanted to throw that in in case you ever experience the hungries again on DD and dismay that something is wrong with you... it's not!) But no fears! :jumpjoy:You're doing great and you can expect great things!! :jumpjoy: :high5:

And wanted to add, thanks for posting that above quote from the book! That's very helpful and I've found it to be true as well. I've settled into some old favorites, the "go-to" foods on DD and it's nice to have those in place. You'll eventually come across yours as well, which will make things even easier. :)

That's GREAT Becky! I hope I experience it soon. I'm only on my 3rd up day tomorrow and I've not experienced appetite reduction yet. Hope that's just around the coroner for me, too.
