Another post suggested upping the dd cals to a max of 60% mode when traveling or special occasions. I don't know what you are currently eating on dd but if its 500 you can try like 700 etc....depending what the cal says, then go back to your lower dd during the week? Just an idea. Haven't tried it yet.... good luck

Maylessa, all of us have to deal with one DD every weekend. Why can't you just enjoy your friends and family and leave it at that? It is simply a matter of what your priorities are. Do you want to "reward" yourself with food or give yourself what you really deserve, a lean and healthy body. You simply cannot have both. You are really wasting your efforts during the week only to undo them each weekend. Then you have to deal with all the guilt and anger that comes with it. Does anything you are eating taste that damn good. You still have one UD per weekend to have your food and if you plan well, you can eat well.Kh That's a lot more than you could do on any other diet I can think of. I tend to go with a bit of tough love. You really can have your cake and eat it too on this woe, just not everyday. I eat my beloved chocolate every UD. Would I love to eat it everyday. YES! But I will settle for every other day while fitting in my thin jeans. It's really a win win. Think about it

PS: cuttie, that was suggested for someone with a completely different circumstance and would not be appropriate in this instance.

Mayleesa,
Acchhh, we're all learning our way through this, aren't we? And each of us runs into the behaviors, the cravings, the family patterns, the WHATEVER that got us here as we're finding our way through. I think it's fantastic that you can identify your challenge so well (don't know if I'm there yet), and fantastic that you put it all on a thread so that we can pitch in our support.
My two cents? Nobody knows what you want better than you do. And nobody gets more frustrated about your own obstacles. Every single one of us can identify.
Take heart. Lots of good people here have made it through. And lots of good people here are rooting for you. Somebody'll post words that will give you just the right inspiration for today.
We turn the ship around, bit by bit.

I actually agree with this only if you have been JUDDing for a while.. It is not recommened durring like the first few weeks or so.. What IMHO is needed is a WOE you can live with.. and JUDDD is just that woe.. If you go to the thread that Cutie is reffering to here.. you will see that if you UP your down days on occation(based on per need) you can still work this plan and not ruin everything you worked for.. What i would do is to "plan" You must pick that number your goin to go with even at a higher percentage say.. 45% loss mode or 50% for that day only.. What ever that higher number is.. Plan out your evening with freinds.. be socal but remember.. you still must stay with in "that" number for the day.. IE if your normal DD cal is 500 and you chose to party.. and go with say 1000 even.. Save those calories for that party.. fast all day.. or nibble.. but in order to have your cake and eat it too on a DD even with higher percentage you will need some disapline on that day..Plan and stay with in what ever down day percentage you chose just for that day.. I would never recommend.. to make this a habbit.. i would know that you "can" use it like this on those times that a DD falls with a fun party time for the summer. Good luck.. and if i am way off base i am truly sorry.

I certainly hear you, Mayleesa. Today is a DD for me, and my DH and I usually spend part of the evening relaxing with a glass of wine or two. On days like this I try to fast until dinner time (having coffee with some low cal cream and stevia if I have to) and then have a large salad as my only meal. I also make sure to workout pretty intensely for at least an hour in the morning, before the fasting has really kicked in. Also, there are many low cal drinks and snacks you can bring along with you on weekends to help. I love Absolut Citron, club soda, and real lime juice (I crush the heck out of some thin pieces of lime to really get the juice out, and then dump them in). It is very refreshing and definitely only for sipping. Trader Joe's has a great white bean hummus and lots of others that are very low in calories. Sometimes I have some of that with carrots or celery as my appetizer. I really believe you have more low cal choices than you think. Good luck !!!!

This is the thread that was referred to. I believe I had an epiphany...my longest post ever.

I don't think it is something to be used every DD or even every weekend DD, but I think by reading it you may be able to get your head around the idea that you have not necessarily 'failed' if you overeat on a DD. The danger for many of us is that if we eat a few cals over our correct number we 'throw in the towel' and eat and drink like there is no tomorrow. Which, as you well know is not helpful.

So do your very, very best. As Muffabuff says, the fun is the folks, not the food. (In part )

One way I deal with weekends is by choosing ONE MEAL per Saturday or Sunday to just eat with my friends or my son and not worry about the calorie count too much.

I'm losing very slowly so this may not be acceptable to you.
Also, it is not strictly JUDDD so there may be some who disagree with me.
However, it keeps me from going completely off the rails.
There's also an IF (intermittent fasting) plan called Fast5.
You fast for 19 hours and limit your eating to 5 hours per day.
I find this works great for festivals, holidays, BBQs, etc.

So I might do something like this:
UD Thursday
Fast* all day Friday but have "Up Day" dinner (or a regular DD if nothing special comes up).
Fast all day Saturday but have "Up Day" dinner (or late lunch..for a BBQ or birthday, for example).
Sunday breakfast/brunch, no lunch, light dinner.
Monday DD, Tues UD, Wed DD, Thurs UD, repeat.

(*I sometimes have coffee & cream, or chicken broth with grated zucchini and/or cream, or something else really light...about 100-200 calories from waking until dinner).

I did Fast5 exclusively for a few months this winter (took a break from JUDDD).
I only gained 0.1lb in Jan, 0.7 in Feb and 0.7 in March. NOT bad for me at all, considering I wasn't counting calories OR carbs!!! Although I had hoped to lose, not gain, it showed me that it's a possible plan for maintenance (if I ever get there, lol).

And Fast5 can be combined with JUDDD, if you find that limiting your eating window daily is helpful. The ONLY rule is to observe the 5-hour window; you can do that with UD/DD calories.

Pirate Jenny,
I did a fast 4-or-5 for about four days almost a month into Juddd. It was a welcome break at the time and prevented me doing a lot of caloric damage. I felt like leaping back into Juddd after that, but I'm grateful for your reminders about riffs on IF
