I must really be broken!

End of week one - no scale loss. I didn't even bounce!!! My clothes may feel a tad looser but it might also be wishful thinking.

3.26 DD 530 cals (4 miles treadmill)
3.27 UD 2348 cals
3.28 DD 528 cals
3.29 UD 2330 (35 mins weights)
3.30 DD 504 cals

4.1 DD 426 cals

Reducing my calorie counts this week and trying to stay motivated. Shooting for 400/1900-2000 and 3-4 days of exercise. Wish me luck and a visit from the whoosh fairy!

Hang in there!
I ran your numbers based on your stats (we all use the little or no exercise setting) and get way lower numbers than you were eating. 1975 and 494 at 25% weight loss mode.
That would help. Don't re eat exercise seems to be common advice around here.
Also, you probably already are doing this, but be a crazy woman about weighing and measuring what you eat so you aren't fooling yourself on quantities. I am that crazy woman and still have days where I think I can eyeball, then throw it on the scale and am three times over what I thought I was going to eat there. Liquids are sneaky that way, fats (peanut butter!) yogurt etc.
It can take as much as a month for SIRT1 to get activated, so you have to stick it out.
Looks like your new calorie levels match the calculator on the Alternate-Day Diet site.
I have had stretches of no loss on the scale also, but the fat really was burning, then I would drop a few pounds quickly when my body gave up storing water there.

I read a post on another JUDDD site from a very successful loser (40 to 50 lbs.) that said that if she had paid attention to her scale in the first weeks of JUDDD she would have quit.

After reading that I decided to only weigh once a month because I was afraid I wouldn't give this WOE a good chance. I am now down 30 lbs. and am just now considering weekly weigh ins.

Your UD numbers last week may have been a tad bit high so I think you are on the right track with lowering them. Good Luck this week.

that looks like a lot of UD cals. i made that mistake when starting. ate what the calculator said before i found in the book out that main purpose of the calculator is to give you DD cals. there is no amount you have to eat on the UD. you are supposed to eat enough to tell the body calories are not restricted but not deliberately overeat. i did overeat for 3 weeks. and gained for 2 of those weeks. once i figured that out and backed down i started losing. and Dr. Johnson says in 98% of the cases where people complain about not losing it is too many cals on the DD.

Try your new numbers and I bet you'll see some losses. And just stick with it.

Were you formerly LC and added carbs back in on the UD's? If so, that will add some water weight, and may have offset any losses you got on your DD's.

And it may just be that your body needs some convincing to let go. Mine did. Healing won't happen overnight, but it WILL happen. I think you really need to just be all in for at least a month before you can make a determination of if it's going to work or not. That gives time to make these adjustments we all seem to need to make, and get sirt-1 flowing well.

Just hang in there, and keep coming here for advice on tweaks and encouragement.

Please don't get discouraged!

My first week, I gained 1.6lbs (possibly from extra fiber, lol);
2nd week, "lost" 2.2 but that only put me .6 below starting weight.
3rd week lost a solid 2lbs, and 4th week ***5.8!!!***
I was very happy with 8.4 total in 4 weeks,
but totally astounded by 7.8 in just 2!!!

JUDDD is a *healing* WOE...most other WOEs/diets are not...
Good luck!!!

Another one here who is in agreement with the above posts. I think your initial calories were probably too high on your UDs, but only by maybe 200-300, but that adds up. So bringing the cals down should help there.

Also agree that you may have gained water weight if you have eaten more carbs than you are normally used to eating, and if that has happened.. you could have lost some body fat at the same time you gained some water weight, and the scale can't tell.

And I'm much in agreement with everyone about just sticking to it. Lower your UD cals to about 1950 or so, and DDs at about 500 or lower if you can, and just keep on with it.

I look forward to reading your bragging posts telling us all about your weight losses, because I'm sure they will be coming!

I'm 1 inch shorter than you and do 500 on DD and 1,700 on UD, if you could whittle your UD down to 1,800 or a bit less I bet the farm you would see some excellent losses! keep us posted on how you're doing!

Thanks again all. Screwed up my UD yesterday. Waited too long to eat, ended up at a restaurant at 9pm starving and over did it on carbs. By the time I got home and logged everything I was 300 over my UD calorie allotment. (might have been the giant cookie - ya think??) Was up a pound but I suspect that is water weight from the carb fest by my swollen fingers. Another lesson learned. Even on UDs I need to plan out meals in advance! DD today. I have egg whites and celery sticks to hold me through the day and will do a cabbage w 2 oz of chicken stir fry tonight.

She's also 60 pounds heavier though, and doing 5 miles on the treadmill, under 1800 might be pushing it a bit...

Yeah restaurant + starving is not a good combination for me. I'm reading the menu and thinking that I am hungry enough for an appetizer AND a main dish AND a dessert AND then maybe something else.

What works for me is I split my up days into two meals, and break up my calories between them. So say, 900 calorie lunch, 1000 calorie supper. Then I have a pad of paper and a kitchen scale in my kitchen, and I just keep adding food to my plate until I reach my limit. So on one lazier day that may be a microwave meal, with a salad, and salad dressing, and then add some cheese and crackers or whatever until I reach 900... and on a day like today that will likely be a grilled cheese with soup, and chocolate!

Yes, a very good thing to do is plan both UDs and DDs ahead of time. Sometimes things will come up that will throw a wrench in your plans, but for the majority of the time, planning your calories like that will do great things toward your weight loss. And really, I don't think you did much damage.... today's good DD will keep the JUDDD ball rolling (or bouncing as we say, but downward overall!) Have a good day, TJ!

i am 73 and i have had great results. i have been paleo for a year or more. nov 10 i started the Kruse leptin reset so that is more strictly paleo. but even though i had lots of great responses to that i wasnt losing weight. so i started JUDDD 6 weeks ago and i am down 10 lbs. i imagine my metabolism is just as diet-tired as anyone on the planet. or was prior to nov 10.

The important and encouraging thing I see here is that your DD calories were low enough every single DD to begin activating the SIRT1 gene. Dr. J says it usually takes about 9 DDs to fully activate it and get the special fat burning protein working in your body at max.

That's when you should really feel your clothing getting looser.

My first couple of weeks felt like a disaster. I did good on DDs like you, but on UDs I had a really hard time keeping the food intake down. I wanted to eat everything in sight.

Still, I just started out measuring my waist. That's the only thing I measured for a few weeks until I really started noticing my jeans getting baggy butt syndrome. It took a while for the scale to catch up even though I was losing inches.

It's still like that. I lose inches like crazy, then finally the scale goes down.

I'm happily showing off my size 10 jeans today. (See thread "It almost Zips") because the last time I weighed 193 ish I was NOT in a size 10. I was in a 14!!!

Part of the JUDD magic is the fat and inches that melt away. Don't discount that. It surely is making me very happy!!

Hang in there. give this a full 2 weeks to a month to get everything going.

One more thing. If you had a late dinner that was carb filled, the numbers you see this morning are just water and will go away in a day or 2.
