So Far, So Good!
I'm the hypothyroid perimenopausal competitive speedskater who's trying to figure out how to fit JUDDD into my workout schedule. I'm currently doing 2500 calorie UD's and 1000 calorie DD's, but doing UD's on every workout day even if there are several of them in a row. If I have two "non workout" days in a row, I do one DD and one UD, so I often do 2 or even 3 UD"s in a row, but never 2 DD's in a row. So far, so good! After 10 days of JUDDD (13 days since I started, but with a 3-day break from DD's when I visited my parents), I'm down 5 pounds. This is a better loss than when I did the JUDDD without exercise earlier in the spring; I was at a 3 pound loss after 10 days at that point. I was worried about doing a workout in the morning after a DD, but that hasn't happened yet, and likely won't now that I'll be starting work again next week (teacher) and thus will be working out in the late afternoon.
So, so far I'm quite happy! I know from experience that I tend to lose quickly in the first week or so of whatever diet I attempt, so I'm fully prepared for the loss rate to slow down...but still, I should be able to fit into a few more of my pairs of pants before school starts, which will be nice! And so far I haven't had any issues with energy for workouts, which is also nice.
I'll keep you posted as I go!
