WOE: JUDDD/PHD, LC now that my BG is getting weird
Start Date: JUDDD 1/1/12 + LCHF 12/1/13 (controlling diabetes)
That menu sounds scrumptious! And being able to enjoy it while remaining gluten-free AND enjoying the health benefits of alternate day caloric restriction is beyond wonderful.

I hope you feel as good living JUDDD as I do.

Welcome, Circus Girl: JUDDD is well worth a try. As Beeb has said on this forum, "give it 2 weeks." I came to JUDDD from LC, which I really enjoyed and taught me a lot, but I was stuck. I felt like you did. I'm older than you and was really beginning to wonder if getting to my goal weight at my age was just a pipe dream. Well, I made my goal last week and am now learning to do JUDDD maintenance style. Jump on in!

So glad you've decided to join JUDDD!

I, too am a former HHCG gal, and was so happy when I found JUDDD back in October '11.

I was in my 4th month of P4 and was having a horrible time trying to maintain LDW!

As soon as I started JUDDD, all fears went out the window, and now am happily maintaining.

You'll find the most non-judgmental open minded folks here to help you with any questions you may have.

I never did it for weight loss though, so this feels a bit foreign. I am currently doing HCG and have my calories around 750 for the day. I feel excellent and have so much energy, but am right now re-losing weight I ditched two years ago. So while this is great, I'm looking for something long term. Even when I lose the weight I gained, I have another 30 or so to go before I'm at my goal-or the weight I was before I had kids.

I'm reading through all your threads and getting inspired but have this nagging doubt that I'll be the ONE person that it doesn't work for. Crazy, I know, but that's just sort of been my shtick. I've done so much and nothing has worked long term. BUT I'm trying to shove that aside and just embrace the fact that I know I'll FEEL good on it, and that's more important than my goal. Of course the goal is something to work towards, but if every day is full of health I don't mind meandering to it rather than sprinting.

I am also bringing my husband along for the ride. He's pretty hardcore paleo, so definitely open to this. We first found the idea of IF maybe ten years ago through paleo eating. He has a lot of health stuff going on that the doctors can't figure out, but most of it seems to be rooted in inflammation. This seems like it could be the key for him as well. He doesn't have weight to lose, but he does have inflammation that we'd like to kiss goodbye!

Anyway, that's the deal! Thank you for sharing your wisdom and I look forward to having something to offer and even better, something to report!

I can't wait to start. I just hope I feel as good on JUDDD as I do on hcg.

My husband is thrilled because this means a week from Tuesday we can go to our favorite restaurant instead of waiting several more weeks. They have THE best gluten free menu and we get to feast on fresh, hot rolls with herbed butter, fried calamari, risotta, salmon piccata over corn pasta with a lemon caper butter, creme brulee....

I'm dying here! And on JUDDD we can do it GUILT FREE!
Okay, I'm free that night! (Doesn't sound entirely Paleo though,)

I live in a place where the gluten awareness is high. It's one of many restaurants that have really fabulous gf food that isn't of the "you can have the burger without the bun" ilk. We also have a dedicated gluten free/dairy free/soy free/nut free bakery that is out of this world.

I feel very blessed. My whole family has celiac disease-my husband, my kids and of course, me! It makes it so much easier with places like this around-that wasn't the case 10 or even 5 years ago.

There's another restaurant that does grass fed beef burgers on gluten free buns with certified gluten free fries. YUM!

/food rant over.
How I wish I could find a place like that. My very dear BIL is Gluten intolerant and it is hard for him to find interesting food to eat when he goes out.

He has a spectacularly brilliant pain specialist but even he hasn't been able to put a dent in it. Nor has the neurologist, rheumatologist or anyone for that matter. I can get him somewhat comfortable, but only so long as he's downing enough supplements to bankrupt us. And they're not healing anything, just managing pain....and not all that well, either.

I'm hoping this can shed some new light on things for us! We've regarded food as medicine for quite some time and borne witness to it. A lot of healing has happened, but this is a stone that has been left unturned.

I do hope to have successes to report!
I so hope that you find the anti inflammatory effects of JUDDD help him.
