Extra day - help??
Newbie here, I just finished my third DD and it was way easier than I expected!
But now I'm looking forward to next week and planning my menu. (I'm a very committed menu planner, have been for 10 years!)
I'm confused about one point....how do I deal with UD and DD if I want to keep them on the same day of the week? Do I put a MD on Sunday? Will that stall me out before I even get started?
Please take pity on the poor newbie (me!) and help me figure this out - or point me to a thread were you wonderful ladies have already explained it!
Thanks in advance!

Hi SpaMom! Dr. J recommends that if all possible you stick to the UD/DD rotations for the first two weeks to activate the SIRT1 gene and allow the sirtuin proteins/enzymes to build up in your body.
That said, if you NEED to change your rotation and have a schedule for your UDs and DDs then you may insert a MD (medium day) to make the rotations work out the way you need them to work out.
In that case, you would insert a MD after a DD thus changing the rotation. It might look like this: M-W-F = DDs and Tu-Th-Sun = UDs with Sat. being a MD.
A MD is an in between day. The number you will use for calories is the average of your UD/DD numbers. So, add UD + DD and divide that by 2 to get the MD number.
It is not recommended that you do a DD following a MD because your body will not have enough nourishment from the MD to sustain the DD.
Does this make sense? Or sound crazy! LOL! this is all "JUDD-Speak!"

"...had we been discussing disorders of growth - why some people grow to be more than seven feet tall and others never make it to four feet - the only subject of discussion would be the hormones and enzymes that regulate growth. And yet, when we're discussing a disorder in which the defining symptom is the abnormal growth of our fat tissue, the hormones and enzymes that regulate that growth are considered irrelevant."
