My Menu. Thoughts?

Here is my menu for the first week (I am starting Monday).

Based on my stats I get 537 cals on DD's and 2683 on UD's. I am going to aim for 500/2700. Getting to 2700 cals on some UD's was a challenge

Any feedback is appreciated.

Monday (UD)
B: Everything Bagel, cream cheese, 12oz cola = 570
L: Teriyaki Burger, Fries, 12oz soda = 835
D: Beef Stew, bread, butter, 12oz soda = 995
Total= 2400

Tuesday (DD)
B: Broth (I have chicken or beef to choose from) = 40
L: Sandwich Thin, 1 wedge Laughing cow cheese, 2pcs ham = 195
D: 4oz ground chicken, 1/2 head cabbage, 1 wedge LC cheese, Franks = 250
Total: 485

Wednesday (UD)
B: Everything Bagel, cream cheese, 12oz cola = 570
L: Beef Stew, bread, butter, 12oz soda = 995
D: Meatloaf Muffins, Mashed Potatoes, Corn = 1051
Total: 2616

Thursday (DD)
B: Broth (I have chicken or beef to choose from) = 40
L: Sandwich Thin, 1 wedge Laughing cow cheese, 2pcs ham = 195
D: 4oz ground chicken, 1/2 head cabbage, 1 wedge LC cheese, Franks = 250
Total: 485

Friday (UD)
B: Everything Bagel, cream cheese, 12oz cola = 570
L: Taco Bell (2 tacos, cheesy gordita crunch, soda) = 1150
D: Spaghetti, garlic bread = 959
Total: 2679

**I know that the soda is not good and I will work on phasing it out (right now it's only on UD's) I needed the extra calories though After my soda allotment, I will be drinking lots of fresh brewed iced tea (I love it plain with no sweeteners so it will be great on DD's too)

Hi Cryssi,

I started the beginning of September, so not the most experienced JUDDD budd...

I would recommend adding healthy fats and more fruit and vedge.
The better nouriched (lots of vitamins and minerals) our bodies are the better it will metabolize fat.

Try adding nuts. I love a handfull of almonds as a snack on my UD.
Avocado
EVO over salad
Roasted vedge with olive oil
Dried fruit, eg. mango have lots of calories
Fatty fish, eg. salmon
Roasted sunflower seeds over salad

I find having lots of refine foods on my UD makes DD miserable and hard.

I wish you lots of luck on your JUDDD journey!

I don't know why I didn't think of avocados. I love them too!

Thanks for the feedback. I just got back from the grocery store for this week but will definitely figure them into next week. As well as more fruits and veggies.

Your planned menu keeps you within DD/UD calories. That is all JUDDD asks.

I encourage you to pay attention to your hunger and how you respond to various foods...and tune your menu as you learn more about the above (and as that old JUDDD magic gradually accumulates in your bod). Some of us do better on higher fat on DD, some of us find lots of veggies work better. Over time, you will probably find ways to tweak what you eat.

The most important thing is: great planning!! Transitioning to JUDDD is ever so much easier if you plan your meals. You are positioning yourself for success

Oh, and I totally support the inclusion of (drool, slurp) avocado whenever possible.

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.

Planning is the key to success at the beginning in my opinion and even when, like me today, the scales say what you deserve but not what you like.

I agree with the others that fruit and vegetable are a good thing to get into you, for all the obvious reasons and also because of the wonderful freedom JUDDD gives us to eat any and all of them, at least on UDs.

Avocado, nuts, butter on the veggies or into the mash and, dare I say a glass of wine now and then are all good alternatives to the soda. If you could cut out even one of the 12oz sodas I'd be happier.

But I love that you are seeing this so clearly.

Best of luck to you. One thing I have definitely found is that DDs are easier if I fuel well on UDs with nutritious foods. I would definitely lose the sodas if you can and sub in some of the nuts and other suggestions made here.

ITA w suggestions re fruit and veg... esp. from lots of different colours: red, orange, green, blue, purple, yellow = good nutrients = good health. processed food often has less fiber, fewer nutrients. I know on JUDDD that only cals matter, and some UDs I eat frozen yogurt or chocolate or wine vs. more nutritious foods, but I do think, in general, I feel better, and should have better health, if I eat 80% nourishing foods.

you can roast veg in EVOO in a hot oven, delish. deep green salads with lots of add ins like bacon crumbs, cheese, nuts, full fat dressing. I love melons and other sweet fruits like grapes or bananas for snacks. Asian foods like stir-fry can give you lots of veg too, and super yummy with sauces.

Do you prefer to eat three biggish meals a day on UD? I prefer 6 smaller meals, but YMMV. I just don't like how I feel when I lay 1000 cals on my gut all at once.

good luck with JUDDD... I hope it is a great fit for you

The menu looks pretty great to me. The only thing is you'll want to pay attention to whether or not that sandwich thin makes you ravenous on a down day. I don't think carbs are always evil, but I avoid them like the plague on a DD because they destroy me.

Just dropping in to mention that Diet Soda (if you're drinking the sugar free stuff) is believed to cause cravings. I used to drink it everyday, then I quit. I was stunned to find my appetite cut in half, and NO cravings for sweets ever after that. I used to think that maybe it was just true for some people however last week credible medical research was published that points exactly to that: diet sodas cause cravings which lead to weight gain.

Whatever you eat -- I am wishing you much JUDDD magic!
