Wow.. 1500 cals is alot of food

Ok, how can i get this all down ?
Im doing my UD and DD meal plans for the next few days and WOW !! 1500 is alot of food, seriously

looks something like this
meal 1) Protein shake with 1/2 frozen banana and frozen strawberries, with Lf greek yoghurt, protein powder and LF soy milk.

meal 2) cucumber, laughing cow cheese, capsicum, zucchini muffin.
Meal 3) medium size wholemeal bread roll, with chicken sandwich meat, with tomato, lettuce, onion, cheese, cucumber

Meal 4) 2 tbs peanut butter on 2 Ryvita crackers

Meal 5) chicken breast and veges or salad, or a casserole, but the dinners average around 350-400 cals.

Misc- 2-3 coffees with a little lite milk.


Thats 1390 so far, 124g protein (35.6 %), 103.7 carbs ( 29.8%), 51.3 fats (34.2%) . Those numbers are for the whole day. I would prefer it not to be too carb heavy. I rather proteins and fats to be higher than carbs as you can see by the percentages.

I dont think i can do it, cant eat it all. Did 1300 last UD and felt like i was going to explode. How can i hit my cals without having to eat all day and feel really full, i hate that feeling of stuffing myself. What's calorie dense that may work other than nuts, peanut butter and oil?

Your Up day is where you should incorporate the things you wouldn't normally have on a DD. For instance, instead of laughing cow cheese, how about a cream cheese spread? Why not eat breakfast instead of a shake? In your coffee, something besides light milk? Do you enjoy an adult beverage? If so, add it in? How about dessert? Your UD menu looks more like a lean, higher calorie version of a DD. Just thoughts!

If you like potatoes or rice, you could add a helping to your dinner. (And top it with real butter!)

My UD always has one decadent meal or should I say at the min 700 cal meal. It looks like you are trying to do a diet day instead of a "feast" day.

Also on UD I would never try and eat that many meals. 3 meals max 4 hours apart.

B - 300
L - 500
D - 700


It doesn't have to be exactly these numbers, but you are working your liver too much by trying to eat consistently and that makes it much more work than JUDDD should ever be.

Maybe try for a fattier protein source and up the quantity a bit if you want to increase the daily percentage of protein, or make a salad dressing using a healthy fat? That alays seems to be an easy way to add in calories but may bring your % of fat higher then you want it. It sounds like you are trying to manage your macronutrients within JUDDD, I shouldn't probably be commenting on this as I have only had trouble getting to my UD calories once and that is only because I spent most of the day thinking it was a DD, or maybe that makes me an expert

OK, Babs, I laughed out loud on that. Not sure that could EVER happen to me!

Welcome to my world.

I only lost six pounds and lost several NSVs in March-April because I kept finding ways to eat too little on UDs. After my vacation, I have gotten better at it, but it is a constant battle.

Nuts if you can eat them. Full fat mayo and cheese and salad dressing...measured with a tablespoon instead of a teaspoon. More meat on sandwiches. Butter on the veggies I eat plain on DD. If you have time and inclination, take up cooking. Look for old butter-lard-cream-cheese recipe books (from the days when waists were slimmer). Saute instead of baking. I am currently working to perfect a parmesan-garlic-cream sauce.

I am not much of a breakfast eater. But, after much experimentation, I find on UD I have to eat at least 500 cals at lunch (a) or it is unlikely I will eat enough that day and (b) because - and this may just be me - I have to break caloric stress response within 45 hours of beginning a DD or I stall.

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

I personally do not believe in snacking. Read too many books that say to leave 5-6 hours between meals so your liver can do its work efficiently. I would have three regular meals with some fat thrown in. It is VERY easy to get to 1500 calories for me and then some.

Meal 4) 2 tbs peanut butter on 2 Ryvita crackers I do have an afternoon snack since we eat lunch at noon and supper at 8pm in the summer.

Meal 5) chicken breast and veges or salad, or a casserole, but the dinners average around 350-400 cals. Add that zucchini muffin from earlier, and put real butter on it. Cook your veggies in coc oil, or butter. Put some cheese on that chicken breast. Add a sweet potato with butter (or 1/2 at least).

Misc- 2-3 coffees with a little lite milk. Use HWC instead of lite milk

My additions would probably take you over, so you won't need them all, but hopefully it will help you see how you can add a little here and there, without really bulking up the volume. Since I have the same trouble, these are some tricks I use on UD's.

Cashew butter is high in calories and delicious. Why not make a PBJ only with the cashew butter instead of peanut butter. It's so good. A couple of pieces of dark chocolate are good for you and will bump up your calories. Be creative.

Yes, having a few of the things you don't get to have on DDs will help the amount of food seem less daunting. Chalk it up to making sure of variety, which may be a little tongue-in-cheek on my part, but also has merit.

Well, it seems to be working for you, so thats great. Are you happy with the weekly losses or is it slow? have you ever counted on UD to see what number you are hitting?
At the end of the day, if its working, stick with it.
