How to do a MD? Not losing much, either.
 
Hey, Everyone,

It's almost Easter and it's supposed to be a DD for me. Yeah, right! :lol:

I'm on Day 10 of JUDDD; am eating about 1600 calories on my UD and 500 on my DD. Maybe stick to about 1000 for a MD?

Here's my track record; I don't seem to be losing very much? :dunno:

Thanks,
Susan


March
27 (Day 1) DD– 147 (492 calories)
28 (Day 2) UP – 146.8 (1753 c)
29 (Day 3) DD– 146.4 (490 c)
30 (Day 4) UP – 146 (1382 c) 218 c below; ate Chinese veggie stir fry
31 (Day 5) DD – 148.8 (527 c)

April
1 (Day 6) UD – 142.6 (1606 c)
2 (Day 7) DD – 146 (481 c)
3 (Day 8) UD – 145.8 (1669 c)
4 (Day 9) DD - 145.4 (520 c)
5 (Day 10) UD – 146.8

Make tomorrow your regular DD, Saturday a MD (1050 is the average for you), and Sunday an UD.

You're still in your first couple of weeks, so I wouldn't worry about the loss just yet. Give yourself a few weeks to a month, and see if your SIRT1's get activated and start burning, burning, burning!

Thanks, Dawn! You are always so quick with encouragement :-)

I agree with Dawn about MD cals. I think 1050 is a good idea.

Keep on truckin'! If you don't see a loss in the next few weeks, maybe we can help you tweek a few things. Your UDs seem a little low to me, but who knows? :)

Thank you! I'm always open for suggestions! Will try raising my calories a bit on my UD. :up:

Happy Easter! :jumpjoy:

I am new to this too...

Should you always follow up a MD with an UD?

The preferred order is DD, MD, UD, because you need to be well fueled going into your next DD and you won't be if it follows a MD.

That being said, MDs are not to be used willy nilly. They shouldn't be used at all during the first 2 weeks to a month. However, life being what it is, sometimes you have to throw one in here and there. I'm stingy with mine. I've only used one in almost 4 months of JUDDDing.

I seem to have to use MD more and more! I am still losing, but my life requires a ton of "social" business events in April. I eat about 1000 and it is usually when my DD gets way-layed by something I was not expecting! :eek:
