What do *you* love about JUDDD
 
I love so many aspects of JUDDD so I thought I would start a list:
No food is "off limits"
Totally increased levels of energy (this took some time).
Appearing to have lost weight when the scale wasn't budging- JUDDD magic
Less pain and way less frequent headaches
Healthier relationship with food
Appetite suppression
and finally- with a great deal of caution it appears that my 15 year battle with sleepwalking/eating is also improving!:aprayer::jumpjoy:

Muffabuff 07-07-2012 02:50 PM

Wow Carly how great. It's odd I have so much more energy on my DD. my only complaint is it is stopping me up quite a bit, even with extra fiber:cry:. How nice that your sleep issues are improving. I get lots more housework done on DD but forget to make lunch for my DH lol. I just don't think about food that much.

It just seems so doable!! I can easily diet for one day....knowing I can eat whatever I want in moderation the next day. :)

Whitlin' 07-07-2012 03:40 PM

With caution, as Carly said, it seems my respiratory asthma-like problems are better when I follow JUDDD.

I really like the freedom. I'm not committing a "crime" when I have a bowl of ice cream. There's no reason to throw my hands up in despair - ice cream was probably well within calorie range that day, so it's not a problem!

I really like the confidence that things will change. (I realize it doesn't work this way for everyone, but for me) I really can lose weight and maintain the loss. I don't have to live in uncertainty, wondering if my effort is for nothing.

I like the possibility of other health benefits from the inside out, that I may not even know about. I like that I'm being good to me on a very basic level.

I totally agree with your post. I eally like that there are very few "rules" with JUDDD- really only respect your calories. I also like that you can't get accidentally derailed by others. I was doing Atkins about a year ago and the lady at Dunkin Donuts put sugar in my coffee rather than splenda. The scale lept up, threw me out of ketosis and started me back on crazy cravings. When I started JUDDD I reintoduced carbs slowly- no bounce- no cravings!

Manday 07-07-2012 04:32 PM

I love the energy, the fact that I don't HAVE to have anything because I can have everything, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fact that I am actually not hungry most of the time! I have never known this feeling without prescription or OTC appetite suppresants and I LOVE it!

I also love the lack of guilt...if I break down and sink back into emotional or bored eating...oh well, I just dust myself off and get back on track.

Oh, and I have ankles again! JUDDD has done wonders for my legs. My veins are shot since my bout with blood clots several years ago and my legs are always swollen. Well, they USED to be always swollen ;).

And, I can eat sugar and not crash....and Coke tastes yucky now (I used to drink at least 6 cans a day)...and I'm sure there's more that I love about JUDDD, but I think that's enough for now.

What is JUDDD

Carly 07-07-2012 05:00 PM

The Johnson Up Day Down Day Diet. Read some of the threads on this board.
There is tons of info and support right here!
And:welcome:!

Muffabuff 07-07-2012 05:10 PM

Oh how could I forget! I love that I can indulge my sweet tooth. I can put Oreos, gelato, SF chocolate, cashew butter, bread and all the other non diet foods in my shopping cart:jumpjoy::yummy: I also put proteins in the cart for good measure:hyst: this woe has so many things to love. It has really no drawbacks worth mentioning.Did I mention English muffins:yummy:

I love the energy I have! Also, enjoy the freedom from food on DD. :heart:

I am learning so much about myself and my health! :heart:

I love the JUDDD budds! :love: :hugs: This may sound cheesy, but I can relate to so many of you! Sharing our fun times and some rough, tough times! Celebrating losses & goals together! :sing:

The other amazing point that I love about JUDDD is that I have witnessed this plan work for many that have shown up here desperate and on their last hope! Not only that, I have witnessed health benefits that are just phenomenal! I can't tell you how good that it feels to see and be part of this.
JUDDD does take patience, but if you think about it so does anything that is really good for you healthwise.

I can't believe that I took so long to actually begin the WOE. :p

:goodpost: how could I forget about the JUDDD Buddds! That is one of the best parts for sure!
True about patience... Really everything in life that is worth a lot takes work, patience and persistence. If I have worked hard for something I'm unlikely to throw it away. In the last 15 years I have gained and lost over 100 lbs twice. I'm determined for this to be the end of that!:aprayer:

mommy2boysaz 07-07-2012 06:49 PM

You guys are so awesome! :love:

I think I want to give JUDDD a whirl, just because I want a JUDDD BUDDD! :hyst:

Oh, AND the other pros you've all been listing are pretty awesome, too! :high5:

Carly 07-07-2012 06:53 PM

I hope you will give it a whirl:welcome:

Tag425 07-07-2012 07:03 PM

:yahoo:I love how forgiving JUDDD is!! How flexible, I can make it work, no matter what situation comes along. :yahoo:

kimberino 07-07-2012 07:30 PM

For me, it's the appetite suppression. My friends used to call me the bottomless pit because I could eat so much! The first 2 years on Atkins, I was able to eat with abandon and still lose weight, but the third year, not so much. When I came to JUDDD, I was skeptical that I could stay within the UD calorie limit, but thought I'd try it just for giggles. What can I say? Almost 4 months later and my appetite has diminished; sometimes, I have to make myself eat something to get to within shouting distance of my limit.

If I wasn't doing JUDDD to lose weight, I'd do it for this reason alone.

Heather: Every time I see that list you are pointing to in your siggy I smile!!:D I feel the same way about losing the weight and keeping it off, too! :jumpjoy:

And your last one about living to 120 even if you don't want to. Hilarious!:rofl::rofl:

Yam-Yam 07-08-2012 10:46 AM

*Losing weight while dieting half the time!
*Peaceful DDs with no food drama or stress
*Judd Budds like you:heart:
*Actually enjoying a woe while losing weight and getting healthier:up:
*Feeling lighter on my feet
*Much better and more objective relationship with the scale! (no longer stress there)
*Being "forgiven" for my splurges when on vacation
*There is no guilt in JUDD
*After vacation gains, a few DDs take them away quickly. Unbelievable!!!
*JUDD BUDDS AGAIN!:hugs:
*Eating a Snickers bar on a DD and having the scale go down the next morning.
*Feeling comfortable in my skin and knowing eventually I will get to goal and stay there
*Feeling I have found a WOE that is so easy and simple I can do it forever!:notwrthy:

:goodpost: I could not have said it better!

Sheridan 07-08-2012 11:41 AM

I love every single thing about it. :heart:

The thing I love the most, above all others, is that my once debilitating arthritis is gone. Truly GONE.

I was very skeptical of the claims that this was one of the benefits. But for me, it's true. And a dream come true.

Sheridan: That is so wonderful about your arthritis being gone. Almost unbelievable. I can't wait until more studies come in to the light about the SIR genes. There will be so much hope for so many.

I could write three reasons every day. Here are today's:
1. I understand it when people say they need a break from JUDDD, but for me JUDDD feels like the break. It's a relief.:)
2. I don't think I believed it would work for me. And it has. It is. I don't know. I feel like that means the universe is a kinder place for me than I thought it was when it looked like I was just going to stay miserable about my body until I died. I feel like I belong as a happy person in this universe. :)
3. This is the first eating structure that allows me to learn how to better love myself as I go. This is a weird one to describe. Just learning to delay gratification by one day is huge for me. I love myself for that Learning that I can blow an UD and still succeed at this is huge. ( More love.) Learning to treat my body as a beautiful experiment instead of a chronic failure is HUGE. (Love again.) Learning that this structure (I would NEVER have counted calories before) has GIVEN me the freedom I was looking for is totally, mind-blowingly huge. :)These kinds of things are what I mean.
Thanks for the great question. Funny what you discover as you write. :heart:

I.am.in.love.with.this.post. :love::heart::love:

I am in agreement and wish so much that I had found this plan 5 years ago. :)

Joyjoy 07-08-2012 01:02 PM

Sunday, it's funny. I feel pretty certain I was not ready for JUDDD five years ago. Not even one year ago. I had too much resistance to structure, maybe. And maybe I wasn't ready to become beautiful to myself. Without some kind of colossal struggle, i mean Which, of course, would have made me a hag. :hyst:
Glad you can identify. :)

Showcats 07-08-2012 02:12 PM

I love the support of my JUDDD Budds. I love that we can talk about anything here and not get yelled at for being off topic (kittens pooping comes to mind :))
I love the fact that even through 2 months of extreme stress I was able to maintain and not gain weight without really doing JUDDD. I love that my husband is also JUDDDing and is so supportive. I could go on and on....

Ok, Ok! You guys are killing me!!:cry::notwrthy:
Who could NOT want to give this WOE a chance after THAT!:lol: :clap:
I still plan to read some more about the particulars, and I'm still waiting for the book from my library, but I'm jumping in! :up: Looking forward to learning about this WOE, about myself and what my body needs and doesn't need, and getting to know all of you!:jumpjoy:

Many more questions to come...:o
