Yes, Kristin, the best aspect of JUDDD for me is the way I have transformed my eating habits.

DD and UD are now more about nutrition and less about filling the void or emotions. At first it was all about getting to goal, and I obsessed when the scale stalled or seemed unrelenting. Now, I see the results of patience and can actually feel the benefits of eating for nutrition/health. Oh, how I wish that I had known about IF before now!

When I daydream about food, I daydream about veggies (zucchini, eggplant, spinach ) in rich sauces. Consequently, I am not surprised to find myself trending towards the wonderful world of vegetables.

Marla, I think it took me about a month to realize I was looking forward to DD, that I wished every non-special-occasion day could be DD. I really enjoy knowing I cannot go too low, I have lots of flex on how high I can go, and - since I have been doing this almost nine months - I pretty much know what I am going to eat on DD. No planning, no worries, bring on the celery!

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.

Nancy, at some point, if you'd care to, I'd like to hear a bit about your shifting version of what works for you. Although I know we're all different, It might save me trying to reinvent various wheels.
I'll bet we could all benefit from your continued experimenting.

Thanks, Nancy. I'm really just now in my third full week, so I guess I should be a little more patient about acclimating. I'm starting to get the hang of my DD routine, foodwise. I hope that soon it will feel normal enough that it won't occupy my mind all day long. Yesterday was pretty good because I was physically occupied with cleaning out closets, but during the week I just sit at the desk and THINK about it. lol

I'm on my 2nd week, and I admit I've been going a little overboard on the pasta, crackers, and sugar. I have a box of mac n cheese calling my name for the next UD. My fiancé is doing this with me, and after being on Atkins for a few months, we're like kids in a candy store right now.....But I think the novelty will eventually wear off, and we will treat our Up Days more responsibly!(MORE, meaning better than we are now, but we're still going to eat mac n cheese if we want to, so there!)

I love that, and why not if you have no issues with wheat.

I am finishing a lovely UD where I felt perhaps I was a little low on calories. A glass of lovely Burgundy and a couple of pieces of dark chilli chocolate.

I find I have over the summer since no foods are off limits.
With the summer fruits and veggies that I couldn't have on low-carb, it was nice.
I also find it easier to "eat seasonally" on juddd.

Yes I loved that when the asparagus season came I could have it every day sometimes drowned in butter, sometimes not. And the seasonal English raspberries instead of the imported ones, they just taste so much better.

Candy store indeed. I have been having an ice cream cone every other day this summer, as well as margaritas, breads with olive oil, the best summer fruit ever...YUM. The novelty IS wearing off slowly though, I am happy to report. I don't have these things each up day now, not so much obsessing in general. What freedom. And still losing!! Set to you and hubby!!

I'm getting my first box from the CSA tonight and I'm excited about it. That's new to me! Who would have ever thought I'd be looking forward to unknown veggies?

Dawn, I'm excited to hear about it. I get drug-free meat at a place where people pick up their veggie boxes. When I ask them about it, they talk about being happy to support local growers, and enjoying the challenge of creating meals according to what's available. Talk about a creative game!
Let us know how it goes.
