I know for me keeping total sugars under 25g a day is key, way lower on down days. Sugar is always a binge trigger for my body.

I am so sorry you are having such a difficult time. I too agree that bananas are not your friends! If you are able to safely eat smoothies at some point, may I suggest you leave out the macadamia nuts. They add an enormous amount of calories to your smoothies. I'm glad you are not giving up on Juddd. With a little experimentation and patience, not to mention activation of sirt1, you will find your sweet spot. And once you do it will be smooth sailing for the most part. When I began Juddding I too needed to make some adjustments before it really started giving me the results I wanted. We all want you to find success, try to be patient and you will find your groove. Also, it takes about twenty minutes to feel satisfied after eating, perhaps try to wait a little longer after you eat to see if you are really still hungry.

I just discovered that hormonal surges plus bananas equal dietary disaster for me -- so I feel your pain. My first attempt at a down day went completely haywire -- PMS plus banana was a nightmare. (This was also after coming off three weeks of pretty severe calorie restriction, for me.) Needless to say, I am back to low carbing it from here!

Maybe think of it this way -- you did a refeed -- you filled up your reserves with nutrient dense, healthful food -- and now you are back to business. It helps me to conceptualize it that way -- and since you did eat nourishing foods, it is a valid frame of reference.

Big hugs, and a hearty pat on the back for getting back on track!

Thanks! Today was a great day. I only had eggs and turkey and I am satisfied. I can't believe how lousy my body feels though, it is like hang over (headache and brain-fog). I know I will be better tomorrow.

Vanessa- you are right about eating slowly. This is my weak point, as I always eat fast and in front of computer, which is not a good thing. Oh, those macadamias were so yummy but sinfully high in calories I am sure if I had them without the bananas just 1 oz would have been enough. Lesson learned!

I like your thought process. I have re-fouled my body with all the healthy foods and it is time to get back to basic--very low carb.
Sorry to hear that you also had a bad DD due to bananas. Those hormones are not helping either. So we are both going to be low carbing now

I only keep DD food in the house (Celery, FF greek yogurt, Cukes, Pickles, Miracle noodles, Almond milk, Egg beaters) I buy UD food that day. My spouse keeps 'danger' foods hidden so well that I never run into them. I don't really discuss this much but here it goes... I gained my 100lbs by sleepwalk eating. Yup...totally asleep, enjoyed none of it, slept through all of it. So I don't keep anything that will cause damage if eaten while totally asleep. Anyway, what really struck me was the Bananas...I have eaten an entire bunch in one night and for me I think they trigger the eating monster. Stick with it! You are so close to your goal

Carly that was very brave of you to share with us. May I ask how you are dealing with the sleep eating? How are you controlling it now? You must be very very proud of the weight loss you have accomplished so far.

Sadly, it's probably not well controlled, but at night my very supportive spouse hides all non-perishables and in my sleep I seem not very determined to search and have only cooked a few times in the 15 years this has been occurring. So, like I said, I get pickles, celery or cucumbers if I wander and that won't kill a DD. I wish I could report that it was bettered by JUDDD or for that matter anything I've tried including slews of medications, but the empty fridge/pantry worked the first time and I lost 110lbs in 15 mos doing Atkins. I bought only food for the day. I did it for 4 years and maintained 112lb.
So, to compensate for the possibility of eating at night I eat 200 on DD and about 1700 on UD while awake. That leaves room for 200 calories of pickles, etc...

Carly, you were brave to share that. I'm glad you have found something that works.

One thought I had, what about a fridge lock, or those magnetic cabinet locks, that they have for child-proofing. Your dh could just hide the key then. Of course if you've found something that works, I can see that you wouldn't want to mess with it.

You have a very supportive dh to do what needs to be done to help you make the best of this. ((((hugs)))

The locks have been suggested. It might work for the cabinets, but I also get up to have iced water, iced tea, etc... and then would be locked out of fridge and freezer. But, so far so good. I appreciate your support.

Carly, it sounds like you have it all figured out but I had a thought--
If you have a basement or garage or other suitable room, could you get a second fridge and then lock that one up?
I thought of it because I was babysitting at a neighbor's house and noticed they have a full freezer in their basement.
I only mention it because I imagine it could be a bit inconvenient/more expensive to buy food nearly every day.
OTOH, you're surely eating fresher food than most people!

I have such a tiny house, with such outdated electricity, that i could never do that! But sometimes when I see a good sale, I sure wish I could stock up.
Plus we are 15 minutes away from the closest grocery store...I try to minimize my trips!

That will be great some day in my dream house, but right now we rent a 2 bedroom apt. I live 25 minutes out of NYC so housing is costly here. That is another reason we can't put locks on the cabinets (they are not ours to scar up). When I get my dream house some day these things will all be in the plan!

Ah, dream houses!!!!
I dream (literally, not just daydream) about moving into a gigantic house several times a week.
My home is 20'×30'....on the outside!
It could fit into most people's garages.

PJ - That is compact. My office is that size. BUT I am housed in an old elementary school and I have a fullsize classroom as my office. I could easily live in my office with a creative layout. More is not always better. I collect too much "stuff" when I have too much room.

Everyone has gotten here before me lol. Yes Carly thank you so much for sharing something so personal with us. You weight loss is an amazing accomplishment especially under your difficult circumstances. At 112 lbs you are quite small, you literally lost another person. Your DH sounds like a great catch, so supportive!

CARLY -- Thank you so much for sharing your story! Would you believe that you are the third person I've met (one in person, two on this board) who have nightttime eating/sleep eating disorder? You have developed great ways to cope with it and I applaud your openness in sharing that.

Bananas are a really common trigger food for people who are prone to bingeing for some reason. I love the darn things, and I hope to be able to eat them occasionally at some point - I'm not a person prone to bingeing or a person with many cravings, but bananas occasionally set off a powerful desire in me to EAT ... I don't quite understand it. It doesn't happen every time I have one, but it certainly has happened more than once. For now, I am banana free, and will stick to my capella banana flavored drops, and my banana flavored sugar free syrup.

Thank you so much for all the support. I appreciate it since I'm never sure how people will respond. When it started in 1997 I got up to 226 and was able to get back to my origional 112. So here's hoping it can happen again! This board has helped me so much. Particularly in my resolve to stay focused on losing the weight.

I cannot imagine the nightmare you have lived through. Figuring out what was going on must have been terrible. Please give your DH a big hug from me for being willing and able to deal with this with you.

Nancy- thank you for asking. I have cut down my carbs to 5-10 gr a day and I am feeling great. Finally saw .5 lb drop this morning after a week stall. My plan is to stick with this for few more days and than s.l.o.w.l.y. increase the carbs to maybe 20-25gr, adding fruits last.

Sneak up on 'em very carefully, Marika. And really do pay attention to how your body reacts. I learned SO much about myself and food that way (I want everyone to share the joy)

It does sound like a good plan and I agree that fruit can be very sneaky.
