This is odd

When I first began Juddding I woke up on my UD so excited to eat. The last few UD I find myself forgetting that they are not DD. it's kind of like food or maybe just the act of eating in itself is becoming less important to me. I read on an IF website that IF helps people to realize that it is not a necessity to snack all day long. I already knew most of my eating was emotional and not actual hunger. I have to remind myself several times during an UD that ,yes I can eat today. I find DD much more simple, I pretty much always eat the same things. I'm not one of the people that make " meals" or get creative. Mostly lots of oatmeal. I find it rather annoying having to parcel out my allotted calories. Especially if I'm not working out that week and I have less calories. Yes, I eat my excercise calories when I have them. I'm pretty petit and without excercise only get 1500, which some days is a lot unless my hormones are kicking in then not so much. The IF site also said that IF is like excercise for your brain. It went into more detail than I can. But If benefits do seem to go on and on. So even on those weeks when we aren't losing we are really " gaining" a lot on the health front.Do any of you forget it's an UD?

I've never forgotten my UDs, but I will say that the feeling of wanting to snack all the time like I used to has really settled down, and I thank my DDs for that! Like the other day, I was in the supermarket, and the items I would have thrown in the cart before (to gorge on later), I just looked at that stuff, didn't really have a yearning or taste for them, and passed them right on by, left it all right on the shelf - thanks JUDDD!!!!

Sometimes I forget which day it is. I tend to eat fairly light for breakfast and lunch on UDs as well as DDs, so I think that's why my body isn't too concerned with which it is until later in the day. Now I'm trying to have a protein shake each morning and just change what goes into it by the day, so that's confusing my body even more. That makes me happy though, because I realize neither day causes me any stress at all.

Yes!!! I started a thread about this a while back when it first happened to me! Now it happens all the time and I might need to mark a calendar or something because it gets to be late in the day and I realize, holy smokes! It's an UD!! Ya gotta love it.

In fact, Monday was a DD and all I had was coffee w/ half and half and water with lemon all day. Yesterday morning (Tuesday)at 8:30 I had an appointment with my personal trainer. I decided to take a Muscle Milk Light carton with me, work out in a fasted state, and drink the Muscle Milk right after the workout.

She and I were talking about IF and the benefits. She said, "I'll bet you couldn't work out like this on a DD" because I was going gangbusters. I told her "This is a Down Day! And I feel incredibly energetic". It was not until later after I had been home for a few hours that I realized it was an UD yesterday! All I had consumed was that 100 calories of Muscle Milk and lots of water. I immediately went and got some yogurt even though I was not hungry and that helped to kick the old appetite in.

Then later I also realized, holy smokes! I worked out like a maniac and I had not eaten anything for about 34 hours!!! Wow. Wow. My scale was down again this morning. Wow.

It hasn't happened to me yet...I wake up shaky and disoriented on UD's and have to eat a bit and then wait about half an hour before going on with life.

Plus, I rather enjoy planning what to eat for breakfast on UD's

Yep. On UD, unless I have planned some special treat, I really miss the simplicity of DD.

WOE: JUDDD!!!
I've mentioned before how thrilled I was that JUDDD *normalized* my appetite and that after awhile, most folks experience this happening.

I don't have to cut almost the entire *third macronutrient* (carbohydrate) out of my diet in order to force myself into a state of ketosis in order to control my appetite/feelings of hunger/desire to stuff my face. JUDDD just worked to bring me to a state of normal attitudes and reactions to food, to eating, to carbohydrate consumption, etc.

So while I still LOVE food and delight in the whole world of deliciousness out there, I no longer feel that I have eat it all right now. I can appreciate the dickens out of something very special and be satisfied with a few bites of it. I rarely go back for seconds, etc. I can enjoy a couple of small cookies out of the package and forget it's in the house after that.

Truly, I'm thrilled to be able to eat anything I wish for without feeling any compulsion to overeat on it, and JUDDD has done that for my brain/chemical balance/tummy/chemical levels/etc.

And I too have to mark on my calendar which day it is as I go along or maybe just forget what day of my rotation I'm on.

you are within 10 of goal if your stats are updated? woot woot

I forget that it is an up day all the time. I do mark my little calendar so I can go check if I get confused. Dizzy broad here. I tend to have the same thing for breakfast every day during the week - especially work days. Weekends are variable.

Me too - that natural portion control is so amazing.
Not that it is bad to have a feast day once in a while and eat UP - but I am loyal to IF now if for no other reason than the appetite and portion control while not FEARING food.

Pretty close! I wish all the whooshing of the past few days would continue. but I know the closer to goal I get the slower it will be. That's ok. I'm getting there!

this. totally. I love how simple the DDs are. I enjoy the variety on UDs but honestly they kinda stress me out a little. Hoping that's different now that I'm back to a more primal menu.

I would have never EVER dreamed this type of situationn could be ME! I too am starting to feel this. I'm 3 weeks in. Already I notice on UD's that in the morning, I eat my breakfast and I don't really feel hungry or even think about food till almost lunch time! Now, my UD breakfasts are like 400 c, but it is my standard LC breakfast. Before JUDDD I would have to have a snack before eating lunch at 1:00...not anymore. Last night (UD) I could hardly finish my dinner which wasn't much! DH is noticing the same thing! LOVING IT TOTALLY!

I will also add, DD's are getting much easier. Tummy growls, but the shakey stuff, I am not feeling much anymore. OH and the irritability seems gone too! I think everyone around me is happy about that too!

I love this thread! I too have seen a normalized appetite and attitude towards food and often wonder, "Who am I??" When I started JUDDD, I thought, honestly, "Well, I've been calorie counting since I was 12 and where has that gotten me? How can THIS be the answer?" It's almost like I felt that low carb MUST be the answer because at least that was different from everything else I'd tried before. But lo and behold, JUDDD is transforming my life!!!

I so agree with you Joyce! When I originally started JUDDD the first few DD's just about killed me. I told DH ( we follow together ) there was no way I could do this long term. Now I feel totally different. One's body truly DOES adjust for all this! LOVE IT!

Joyce,
Same here. I'm getting a compassionate look at my addictive history with eating, I'm eating every single thing I want to (salted chocolate caramels yesterday), and I'm losing weight. I'm loving the structure at this early stage, but happily readingthe maintenance and MUDDy threads for future reference Lots of joy in this for me.

Exactly, Monica!!! I've been lurking here since November at least and tried JUDDD twice for about a week at a time. I was sooooo despondent over the down days and could never understand those who said the DDs were no problem and they could eat this way forever. When I started again (March 26) I tweaked so my down days were 800 and my ups around 1800. I have stuck to it every day and have even been able to lower my down days a bit now. I truly CAN see eating this way forever now and before I truly thought NO WAY NO HOW. I'm so glad to see that JUDDD is working for you!!!

Yes, Kristin! I've reflected so much more on my past since starting this way of eating. I could fill ten posts with all of the lessons I have learned in just 6 weeks. It's phenomenal. Just learning that hunger is not an emergency is HUGE for me.

Oh, and my MIL sent me mother's day flowers and chocolates yesterday and I ate a dark chocolate caramel. After I ate it I said to DH, "Darn it! I should have put some sea salt on that!!!"

Thank you so much!!! I have always wanted a corgi and was thrilled when we got Buttercup (Princess Buttercup from The Princess Bride) 2 1/2 years ago. She's a Pembroke with a tail as she comes from a breeder that doesn't dock--it always confuses people when she has a tail. She is the best dog! Super smart.

Zipp I am delighted that your DDs are easier. It is harder of some than others and I am so pleased that yours are now bearable.

I dont really forget its a UD but i love how im not hungry when i wake up. I can go to bed starving and thinking about what im going to eat and wake up and not eat anything until after i workout. Even as long as i have been doing JUDDD that still baffles my mind...lol
When i first started there were nights i literally couldnt sleep just because i was thinking about food. Now, i usually go right to sleep even if my tummy is growling. I think in the beginning it was just so cool that i could eat some things i had been depriving myself of for so many years that all i did was think about what im going to try on my next UD. Now i have gotten that all out of my system and im just eating healthy and normal. I have my 'bad' foods once in a while but not really that much and most of them dont even appeal to me. I would much rather have a big bowl of overnight oatmeal with chia seeds, smashed banana, raisins, almond milk, walnuts and stevia then a donut or something. Right now im hooked on green smoothies and have 1 every morning. I love them. For me being able to eat fruit is wonderful. Give me a banana over a piece of pizza anyday. Give me a big thick green smoothie with banana, mango, mixed berries, protein, cucumber, spinach, flax meal and stevia!!! I love eating healthy but i also love knowing that i can have that pizza or donut or cookie or whatever i want eating this way. I love JUDDD!!
I love my DD's sometimes more than my UD's too because they are so simple and nonstressful.

Joyce i love the corgi too. Soooo Cute!!!!

Thank you, Shelly! Loved your post.

Cindy--I'm sorry to hear that! We were a little cautious because I don't think of corgis as dogs who do well with children but she has been wonderful. Interestingly, my father in law was bitten by a dog when younger and has had a lifelong fear of all dogs. Surprisingly, he loves this corgi

Apologies for the thread jack. Love the comments here!
