I was going to do a whiny depressing post about how I wasn't losing weight and why 'o why wasn't this working for me and yada yada yada!

The scales just don't seem to be moving but guess what? I went back and checked my records and that isn't true. I have been on JUDDD 32 days and lost 5 pounds. How could I have missed that?

I had a hard time stabilizing after hcg and I find the scale still is doing a lot of bumping up and down. That has been really discouraging. But comparing today's weight to the weight I started at when I began JUDDD I am down 5 pounds. That is great news!

Also in the good news department I think I finally have a handle on DDs and have figured out what works for me. DDs have become much easier and not something to dread. I even had a DD on a horribly stressful office day this week and managed to stay on plan without feeling like I wanted to gnaw the paint off the walls.

My UDs are within my calorie target but I think I am eating more processed food that I did before and may need to fine tune that.

So all in all ... I guess I'm doing better than I thought.

Right, it's my first DD. I've got veggies, low cal porridge & turkey all ready for me, I'm nervous but excited to do this, and I know the first day will be hard but I will feel so proud of myself for doing it. Purple Sage, I can't get egg beaters over here, so wish I could, I'd be eating omelettes by the ton! Will do light exercise too, to see how I go

WOE: JUDDD and moderate carbs
Start Date: 6/1/2012
Good on you Molly and Red Minnie Mouse. You are going to love this woe...I've found that I've fallen into eating the same things on most DD's...and wait as long as I can to break the fast. Yesterday it was almost one o'clock before I felt the urge to eat. Breakfast is usually some veggies browned a bit with the egg whites; frequently I'll had a slice of bacon or some deli ham. Dinner is some sort of chicken or turkey in a salad or the cabbage/chicken/light cream cheese (we use Laughing Cow, do you have something similar in London?) I may have some carrots, celery and whatever veggies as a snack if I can't make it to dinner. The shakes just didn't work for me and wish I could send them to you. I've found that if I have the same things, I don't have to think about food on my DD's and it's much easier.

Minnie, may I call you Minnie? If you don't have egg whites, like our Eggbeaters, you can have the whites on the DD's and save the yolks to eat on your UD's...I understand that if you put them in a little water, they'll last well for a day or so.

Molly, I hope you made a record of your measurements as well as the starting weight...many times we lose inches before that metal thingie shows any changes....and congrats on the five pound loss...

Good luck ladies, and it really does get easier as it goes along. Thank the g*ddess.

Today is my 5th DD.

I have a very large coffee as soon as I get up and enjoy that a lot. Then I wait the hour (approx.) to have my breakfast on UDs and as long as I can to eat on DDs. I am supposed to eat with my Diabetic 2 med. so that is when I have my first frozen banana/skim/stevia/vanilla shake DD breaky. Then it is a wait for as long as I possibly can for my second shake- if I can't take it I have some sl. eng. cuke and celery pieces. Supper is usually frozen vegs/beef or chicken stock and BED.
The constant weeding has left me covered in very uncomfortable insect bites. Any suggestions for easing the itch?
Thanks

Redminniemouse I have bought egg whites in the chiller cabinet at one of the major supermarkets, I cant for the life of me remember which one I am sorry, but they are available. Enjoy JUDDDing!

Sorry about your bites Lainey.

Molly that is a great post, I love your attitude.

My DD day has gone well so far, I had egg whites & turkey for breakfast, and have had small bit of roast turkey with vegetables with fat free gravy, and I'm a happy bunny! Mssarge of course you can call me minnie I love extra light laughing cow on ryvitas or crackers, never thought you use it with vegetables though, I'll look forward to trying. Thanks for the idea!

I never knew we could buy egg whites in the chiller, thank you for letting me know Kissa, will keep an eye out for them.

Norfolk Mermaid, I know vinegar works for stings and itches, greek yogurt is soothing too

On Day 4 (UD) and hanging in so far. My second DD wasn't too bad. I actually got on the treadmill for 45 minute, not pushing too hard, and it felt good even with the low calories. Drinking lots of water is definitely helping so far.

I have my first social dilemma coming up tomorrow. It will be a DD, and I have to go to a "bachelorette party" at a CASINO. There will be buffets with tons of food, then having to hang out for hours at slot machines. Honestly, if it weren't work-related and somewhat important to be there, I wouldn't go at all.

I guess I'm going to try the DD and my fallback will be to make it an in-between day if it comes to it. I think I will not have any alcohol, because if I drink I'll probably end up blowing the whole evening.

Just didn't want to have to mess with something like this after only a few days under my belt. But that's my life--either something social or work/travel related every week. That's why I really hope this WOE can be flexible and forgiving enough to handle it.

Or would it be better to make today an in-between, too, so I don't eat too much either day??

If you plan on trying for a DD or MD tomorrow, keep today an UD. You want to be well fueled going into tomorrow so you're not more tempted to go over. If you fast until the event, or only have broth, coffee, low calorie veggies, etc., I think you'll do fine. There are also plenty of good, low calorie options at a buffet. You can do a big plate of salad veggies with just vinegar, or a little cottage cheese and/or salsa and not feel too deprived.

Thanks, Dawn. I'll do my best to keep it up today--I'm surprised at how little interest I have in food today after just 500 calories at lunch.

I get that. I feel lucky now that I only have one grown son at home and he pretty much feeds himself on his own schedule, so I don't have to worry about meals for anyone else anymore. It's a blessing at times like this. I would whine too!

It's hard when other people mess with your schedule or food choices. I had my "casino buffet experience" last night. Found out it really pizzes me off when I have to turn a DD into a MD over an event I didn't really want to go to in the first place.

I did ok, I guess--ended up eating 350 calories during the day because I was just hungry, then around 450-500 at dinner. Kept it to fairly lean meats, steamed vegetables and some fresh fruit. But I DON'T LIKE medium days. Makes me all testy about whether or not it's really ok to do an up day today.

JUDDD may be more flexible than I am.

Maintaining College Student

I've decided to stop lurking and introduce myself! I'm an 18 year old sophomore in college. I started JUDDD officially yesterday and had my first DD today. I'm a little worried about starting this new WOE at this point in my life because I am 5 feet tall and 109 pounds- a weight I consider perfect for me. I started the summer at 119 and lost just by cutting/counting calories and exercise.
The reason I decided to start JUDDD is because I gained 15 pounds last year due to stress and thyroid problems (which mysteriously disappeared after a few months ) and I have always gained and lost weight in this yearly cycle- I lose ten pounds over the summer because of intense baton twirling practice and being able to count calories but gain ten pounds during the school year, likely because I can't count calories like I like to. I hate this constant up and down- it adds greatly to the anxiety I already have when I'm at school. I'm hoping that JUDDD will provide me with a way to sustain my weight and control the binge feelings I got when I tried to "diet" at school .
I plan to start at 500cals on DDs just to start, but move the maintenance calories after about two weeks, maybe sooner if I lose more weight than I am comfortable with.
But I'd like the opinion of any experience JUDDDers: Is JUDDD a plan that could work for a college student who is just looking to maintain and control herself? Regardless, I love reading the tips on these forums and seeing the support you all provide to each other- it's so uplifting!

Yes, I think so! I hope you have access to some nutritious food, fresh veggies, etc. to make your DDs easier and to keep your energy up. It might be even easier if you have a kitchen or at least a mini-fridge.

Since you are starting now, will that give you a few weeks to JUDDD before you go back to school? The first few DDs can be a bit tough on the brain as well as the stomach! But if you can get past the first couple weeks and then go up to higher calories so that you can concentrate in class & on your studies, it might be easier than starting JUDDD right as classes start.

Since you are so young and obviously exercise a lot, I'd like to add that if you find yourself feeling irritable, tired, weak, or in any other way lousy, be sure to eat a little more on DDs and/or take an honest look at the food you're eating: is it nutritious enough? do you need more protein? are you relying too much on carbs & processed foods?

I hope you like it here!

With regards to exercise on JUDDD - just finished reading the book. It says that if you exercise and burn more than 100 calories in a given DD you can add 100 calories to your down day, but only if you need them.

So far, I have been able to burn 300 or so calories on a down day and not need more. I didn't work out the first 2-3 down days, then walked and did alright, so then I did some extensive hiking for a couple hours yesterday on DD and was fine.

Thanks! My roommates and I have a minifridge, a separate freezer, and a microwave so I plan on keeping lots of good food in the fridge, and maybe I can find some freezable food to bring with me that is good for DDs. I go back to school in about three weeks so I'm hoping that this timing will work out well for me. I can't imagine suffering through my first DDs during the beginning of classes! It's easy to rely on processed foods too much when I'm at school (which I found out the hard way last year ), so I know that's something I need to look out for this year!

If you eat meat...I recommend keeping jerky on hand. I like beef but of course there are other kinds. It's almost 100% protein so, personally, I don't consider it a junk food. It's very low-calorie and easy to carry around or keep in your room...for months, if necessary! And it's so chewy, it's rather hard to binge on!

I also like sunflower seeds in the shell for times I'm hanging out with other people who might be snacking. It takes a long time to eat even 50-100 calories' worth and if everyone else is, say, having lunch or popcorn at a movie they might not even notice that you're not really eating. I guess it's a stereotype but when you say "college" I think of people sitting out on a lawn or at picnic tables together.

I suggest these two foods all the time, sorry if everyone else has heard them too often.

We have a few threads going on portable lunches, low-calorie frozen dinners, DD foods that don't need refrigeration/for traveling; you might find some good ideas in those. Let me know if you need help finding them.

Thanks for the suggestions! Sunflower seeds will make a good study snack, I think. I'll search around for those DD threads you mentioned.

Here goes!

Hi everybody!

I've been a lurker around LCF off an on for a while, but I happened on a post about JUDDD on another thread just 3 days ago, and I'm so glad I did! I've been reading all the different success stories and advice non-stop ever since!

I decided to finally come out and say Hi! and join in the conversation because my husband is sick of hearing me talk about it!

I've done LC off and on in the past, and finally decided to buckle down about a month ago, but after losing a bit of water weight things came to a grinding halt! I didn't realize it until I started to research JUDDD, but apparently I had completely turned off my metabolism, since my LC diet of mostly whole foods ended up being pretty low cal as well.

I'm so glad I came upon this WOE so I can hopefully get the scale moving again! I'm on my first DD today, and I think the appetite suppression that I got from LC is helping out, cause I'm not feeling too bad, so far... I'm going to the library to see if I can find the book today, so I'm sure that will help!

Everyone on here seems so helpful and encouraging, I'm sure I'd be afraid to try it without seeing all the sucess stories! You guys are doing great!

Tuff DD today about the 6th DD for me so far.

I just ate a tin of diced tomatoes and am waiting for the brain to quiet down while it gets the message that it was FED!
I am dealing with the heat and no A/C so cooking just seems like something I do not wish to attempt.
Maybe I will read a while as sunset is coming in about 2 hours and I will feel like fixing something then or just have another banana/skim/stevia shake. Thank heavens for those as they really do the job on DDs.

I am really frustrated about trying to do JUDDD away from home! Yesterday was supposed to be a down day but I chose not to. It was actually a pretty moderate day though. No deserts etc. I had 1 egg, 1 slice of turkey bacon and 1 pancake topped with diced fresh peaches for breakfast. Lunch was ham (only had one small slice) cucumber/onion/tomato salad with a light dressing with mayo and vinegar and spices but most of the dressing stays in the bottom of the pan, fresh garden green beans, fresh raised corn on the cob (2 ears). Dinner was Zuchinni stuffed with fresh from the farm 98% lean ground beef, a bit of white rice, tomatoes, onions, and topped with a bit of cheese and baked. all of it was very fresh, very light and very healthy, but I couldn't see myself sitting there eating my dry cracker with turkey while everyone was eating garden produce so I could be "healthier".

What has your experience been with just alternating moderate days with lower up days during vacation? Is this like Atkins that you lose all forward progress in one day of being "off the plan?" Are down days miserable again after a break or can you slip right back into the routine?

Hi Christa and Augusters,

I am not proud of my UDs or DDs but I think I am doing them just OK. I absolutely hate this month in every way as things just seem to be not going well. The heat for one thing is murder.
I do not like to post in this kind of mood so I will bbl when I can be my usual positive self.

Good morning! I am starting the diet today, so I adjusted my stats to make this my true start. Lots to go, but the more I think about JUDDD the more I think I can do it forever, so I'm less worried for some reason about how long it will take.

The calorie calculator sets me somewhere around 600/2400 for a 25% weight loss goal, so that's what I'm going to shoot for right now. It will actually average out to about 1500 calories per day which I know is good for me for losing.

Had a light english muffin with 1 egg, 1 slice of Canadian bacon and 1 tbsp of finely shredded cheddar. A bit over my 200 calorie goal for breakfast on this DD but not bad!

Hi,

I had posted in the newbies Intro. thread yesterday, but I'm not sure how often that one is checked in to answer a question I have.

My plan for my first two weeks of DDs on M-W-F is to use shakes, as Dr. J suggests in his book. I'll be using "Bill Phillips Right Light" meal replacement shakes for a max of 500 calories. My UDs will be on T-Th-S with a max of 1,500 calories. Not sure yet how to best handle Sundays.
Does anyone do a MD (medium day) once a week?

For the past 5 yrs. I've been doing different phases of the South Beach WOE. Although I love the wide variety of healthy food choices on SB, I haven't been able to drop my weight below 155 in the last few years. I had regained 20 lbs. after having to drastically limit my exercise level, because of severe hip pain
from Osteoarthritis. I'm scheduled to have hip replacement surgery on Sept. 10th., so I figure these next three weeks are a perfect time for me to begin experimenting with the JUDDD WOE in hopes of getting my weight down a bit before my surgery. Who knows...I may like it so much that I get hooked on JUDDDing and decide to keep on doing it from now on.

I look forward to getting better acquainted with all the new & experienced JUDDDers here!

A couple of things I wanted to address in your post. There are JUDDDers who do a set schedule of rotations, and it works well for some, not so great for others. I say, try it and see how you do. I'm sort of a purist and do straight UD/DD rotations, but if you want to keep your days of the week the same, it can be done. I would recommend throwing in a MD (add your UD/DD calories, then divide by 2 to get the average=MD calories). However, it's recommended to insert the MD after a DD and before an UD. That way, you always have an UD immediately before a DD and you're well-fueled to carry you through. In your case, if you want MWF to be DDs, you'd do MWF DD, TThSun UD, and make Saturday your MD, if that makes sense. But, if you want to try Saturday as an UD and Sunday as a MD, it may work out okay for you. That's one of the great things about JUDDD--you learn so much about what works for you.

The other thing I was thinking is about your surgery. Weight gain after surgery is inevitable, between them pumping you full of all kinds of fluids and sodium, and your own body's need to hold onto water for recovery. Sometimes it takes a very long time to get back to where you were before the surgery. You probably already know all this, but I want to make sure you don't freak out the first time you get on a scale after the surgery.

Thanks Dawn for your warm welcome and advice!

I'm already freaking out anticipating a weight gain after the surgery, so that's why I decided instead of emotionally overeating beforehand, that I would attempt to combat it with some proactive pre-op weight loss. I hope JUDDDing works for me as well as it has for you!

Thanks for this, Dawn. I'm starting to think in that direction. I think it would help me a lot mentally and emotionally to have certain days pegged as UDs so I can plan ahead for travel and social stuff. Right now, it feels like a constant analysis to figure out what's falling on what day (then freaking out when I realize I'm committed to a challenge on a DD).

I think I may start that after another week of straight rotations so I can get to T/Th/S UDs. I guess if it doesn't work I can switch back.
