Oh yes, GG crisp breads. I love them, my DD1 (with Downs) said, "Ugh they taste like cardboard." It's a love them/hate them thing I fear.

I may have to try these. I started eating Wasa crackers last year, at first I thought they tasted like cardboard also. Now I sort of like them, but they're 30 calories a cracker. I've stopped worrying about taste on DD and just look for foods that fill me up.

Today is my second DD and I'm not even really hungry! Normally, DH and I eat breakfast around 7:30 or so with the kiddos, but I didn't want to eat when I wasn't hungry, so I held off. Didn't even get slightly hungry until 10:30! Hopefully that will mean tonight won't be as bad as my first DD, because that was horrible!! I hope all of you guys are having a great day!!

Dearest Lainey, you are doing really well, we all understand that DDs can be really, really hard.

And dearest SavLexi....we equally understand how great it is to have an easy DD.

They vary, sometimes it is real hurting hunger and sometimes, as happened to me today, it is 'I still fancy more food' hunger. Both are tough.

And sometimes, it's hormonal "I'm going to eat the piano if I don't have more food RIGHT NOW!" hunger.

Sigh. Even after 6 mos, TOM can make a dd a real test of perseverance and discipline. I need to get more water in, and I've promised myself when I finish a big glass of lemon water, if I'm still hungry, I can have a snack (probably a caramel rice cake for 50 cals).

Hi there! I've lost well with low carb too ... several times. My problem is that I didn't seem to be able to make it my lifestyle forever, and yet it worked, so I was experimenting with carb cycling right before discovering JUDDD. (There's different plans out there ... Chris Powell from Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition has a book out on it that I was planning to read, but I started JUDDD first). What I was doing is low carb with taking one-day higher carb breaks at intervals (I experimented with every 3 days and one higher carb day a week). It was going fine, but I wasn't so happy with the rate of weight loss given how much I have to lose.

So far, my rate of loss seems about the same with JUDDD, but time will tell ... I have only been on it since 7/11 and there was a vacation in there. I have been losing, though, and it's been overall easier and more fun and I can envision doing it for a longer time.

About calorie counting ... the down day up day cycle is intended also to keep our metabolism up, which is a plus. You might find that it works where every day calorie cutting didn't. I am not a fan of calorie counting just because it is a pain, but counting down day calories is pretty easy for me since there aren't that many of them and I know I don't have to count up days as long as I'm happy with losses.... but I have been anyway most days.

Like others, I tend to carb cycle automatically with JUDDD just because I think low carb choices on DDs will leave me less hungry.

I still struggle with the DD, but honestly I think the UD are harder-I want to eat everything in sight! I so want to be one of those people that has to force themselves to eat all of their UD calories.

Seven months and I still have not reached the point where I can't eat my UD calories and then some. I am patiently waiting although it is a tad better than it used to be. UD and food calls. BUT I am weighing and measuring everything today and forcing myself to put the food away then. Has worked so far but I have hours to go before I sleep.

THANKS Cindy and Tina and everyone.

I just drank 20 ozs of watered tea (lots of melted ice) and a small hand full of luttuce. Tomorrow I will be "General Sherman" and my UD will be the state of Georgia!!! That is how hungry I am today. I honestly do not remember ever feeling this crazed with hunger and not being pregnant. I MUST not eat my supper till much closer than this to bed time or I won't make it to sleep and I must sleep to get to tomorrow. Who ever mentioned the egg whites and vegs I truly thank you- egg whites are just 17 cals each and the vegs were only 35 per cup with the coconut oil (?) about 50 I think I recall... I looked on the container but do not remember. I can't think straight with my brain feeling like cotton. I do not feel trembly or weak but I am not moving any at all. I am able to focus fairly well on a good novel I started a few hours ago. When it cools of after sun down I want to do more outside but prolly not- waiting for food tomorrow seems a good idea befor getting real active. Time for my diabetic meds (Type 2 Januvia and some ??? what is the word for vitimins?)- told ya... cotton brains.
I am bound and determined to not exceed 500 calories this day NO MATTER WHAT! It is like when I quit smoking- I never smoked again because I DID NOT want to ever have to quit again. I will be using that same methiod with JUDD. Am I making any sense?
bbl but again Thanks Cindy. You seem to always come in when needed the most with just the right thing to say. My brain is going UDUDUDUD.

Okay, I am struggling with having cotton brain today on my UD! Is this typical? I have been eating pretty well, up to just over 1200 calories, getting ready to go the gym, but I am just tired, feel kind of like I am floating and not clear! I had to proof read a paper for class to submit today and I was really struggling with that! I have eaten really healthy foods today, not particularly high in carbs but not low enough to create induction flu or anything like that. I just feel like that ad for cold medicine from a few years ago, where this lady was walking around and her head was a balloon up above her!

I plan to have a pretty good snack pretty late tonight to make sure I can get through tomorrow though and tomorrow will be about getting as much protein as I can get with my 500 calories!

Hi Everyone and Welcome to all the newbies!

I've been Juddding for over 6 weeks now and I still hate DD's. They are better as everyone says, but I still hate them. I keep my DD's below 500 and like Lainey wait til late to eat my meal or I won't make it. I started using more almond milk in my morning coffees which helps alot. I keep thinking I might up my calories on DD's to make it more bearable, but so far haven't. As soon as I can trust myself I will try to break up my calories and eat a little more during the day, but I don't think I'm ready for that yet.

Today is a DD and for some reason it is a rough one. One more hour to eat. Thank goodness.

And tomorrow is an UD I can't wait!!!
Oh, and I have no problems eating up to my calories on UD's. I do have to eat carefully as not to start the "run away hunger train".
But after all the complaining I do, this is still the best WOE I have ever tried, and I can't stop talking about it.
Maybe the more I talk the less I'll eat.

70 minutes of cardio followed by weights and I feel much clearer in my mind. Maybe I need to start the UD off with a workout...will try that Monday.

UD day hooray!

Yesterday was just horrid with hunger. Today I will start out with egg yokes on 10 grain toast (1 sl )/ 1 tsp. strawberry Smuckers and my coffee. Lots more weeding today but the food should help with getting much more done than yesterdays DD.
I could not have made it through without being able to come here and moan and groan so I am grateful for making it thru and will sure remember to not break DDs again as I never want to have to do a first DD ever again.
Thanks everyone- Mary, Cindy, Mere and just everyone of you.

Slightly discouraged.....

Feeling a bit discouraged, but not ready to throw in the towel. I know it's because on HcG I would be down 7-10 lbs by now, and not the 2ish on JUDDD. And it's only been 11 days. So I'm going to ignore the scale for the next couple of weeks. I'll weigh daily and record, measure weekly, follow my DD's carefully and my UD's slightly reined in.

Yesterday (UD) I consiously decided that I would not obsess over calories. I have ab-so-lute-ly no problem eating every up day calorie... and then some. I am shocked at how quickly I fell back into the calorie-is-a-calorie mindset. Really? Gummy bears = green beans? I did do better mentally yesterday by eating when hungry and not obsessively measuring and counting every calorie to make sure I had a lot of snack room left at the end of the day. I nourished myself better, and I'm not hungry this morning. Probably because chips weren't the last 400 calories yesterday. I was still a bit over on a rough estimate, but I felt more relaxed and made better choices.

So, onward and downward.
Cheryl

Love this thread. It cracks me up to read the huge variety of experience. I hated the first DDs - felt disoriented, ravenous, light headed, and massively cranky. Angry at the world. Now I love them!
But I struggle, still, with UDs! Because I can eat enough for twenty people when I am not relaxed and completely centred. So JUDDD is going to teach me to be relaxed and centred. I don't mind learning. (And it's more fun learning while feeling long and lean than while feeling like a blimp.)
It's fun hearing about what each of you is discovering. Thanks for sharing.
Hope it helps for us to chip in our experiences.

Cheryl it does take a while to get our minds around the idea that "slow and steady wins the race".

It sounds as if you are beginning to accept that this is a very different journey to HCG.

hi all

someone shake me!!! why do i ever leave JUDDD, thinking that something else will help me lose weight faster or just be 'better' for me in general?!?!? ughhh....

well, i'm back! and HAPPY about it!!!

yesterday was my first DD after a huge binge of pizza and cinnamon rolls on friday. i had done a very strict high fat LC for 2 weeks. working out 6 days a week and when i got on the scale, it told me i had lost 4 pounds..... 4 pounds?! in my mind, that was not good enough. so off i went, head first into carbs. once i was through i started really thinking about myself and my binging.... why i do it... what triggers it, etc....

i came to the conclusion that the ONLY time i ever felt like i was in control of my eating was while i was doing JUDDD .... so here i am. and i'm already very relieved

thanks for listening!
