WOE: JUDDD
Start Date: April 2009
Beside myself with anticipation

Oh my gosh you guys! I've been reading the JUDDD threads for a couple of days now. I'm so excited and I really think I could live with this WOE. I'm so freakin anxious to get started (like, TOMORROW!!!) but I'm feeling overwhelmed by all the info. I know there must be a nice "HOW TO START" thread buried here somewhere. Can someone point it out? (sorry to be a pain) I did read a great newbie thread/sticky which really convinced me that this lifestyle fits me to a T.

I'm wondering things like:
Do I start with an UD or DD? I did go online to find my Cals for UD and DD, but not sure if that is for induction or maintenance, etc.

I've been trying to do LC for a week or so now after losing 60 lbs on the Belly Fat Cure (and then regaining 40 ).

I recently started walking/jogging and have been looking for a WOE that I could stay LC (for the most part) but still get some carbs when needed for my workouts. I think this is it!

You all are such an inspiration!

Thanks!

Cece

Do start with a UD, that way your body will be well nourished for you first DD. Do try to eat good healthy foods but allow yourself something you might normally deny yourself to show you what a joy your UDs can be.

The numbers you get on the Johnson site are for weight loss, but he recommends that you start with 500 cal DDs for a couple of weeks to acclimatise your body to lower calories. He also suggests shakes and bars but most of us here on JUDDD enjoy real food too much and like planning our DDs to have lots of variety.

Look through the JUDDD stickies and there are a couple of really good threads there, such as 'How to do JUDDD'.

Also, join in the October Newbie thread so that everyone can benefit from any queries you may have.

Good to have you on board Cece.

Hi Cece, and !

I love your enthusiasm, and I think you're going to really love JUDDDing with us. I'm glad you've been reading the threads and getting to know us and our stories. When I first started reading, I got obsessed and couldn't stop. I thought "I'll never keep up with all these posts!" but once you've read some of the older posts, and manage to catch up on the newer threads, you'll find it quite fun to check in daily (or even a few times a day like me!) and just catch up on what you've missed.

There are some good tools to know that it took me awhile to figure out, like the symbols, and how to read just the posts since the last time you checked in. You have to be signed in to use those. On the main JUDDD page with all the threads listed, scroll down to almost the bottom and check out what all the icons mean. Also, when there's a blue down arrow next to a thread, if you click on it, it'll take you to the first post you haven't read. Pretty handy.

If you already know all this, sorry! I went a couple of weeks doing things the hard way before I figured out the shortcuts!

My advice? Plan what you will eat on both DDs and UDs. Reality may not always work out, but having a plan really helps.

AND, take your measurements or get a slightly too small outfit. There are times the scale does not move but inches vanish (meaning a whoosh is in your future). For some of us this is the norm. I once lost eleven inches before the scale figured out it had better show some weight was gone

Thanks all....good advice about planning out my meals since that has been my downfall thus far with other WOEs. But I realize the importance here and I am trying to decide which journaling/calorie counter I want to use. Has to be something mobile.

I decided to let today be my first UP day. Just finished dinner and I even added some carbs with it and I'm at 1400 cals for the day. :-( Should I try to get closer to my UD number of 2100? That seems so far away right now.....

Anyone else start out with just a twinge of guilt about the UD? Sheesh

in my opinion you just found the best WOE on earth!
Do try to hit your UD calories at least once a week. At the beginning it was hard for me, but I made sure I did at least once each week. My UD numbers are quite a bit lower now and I'm glad I didn't let my metabolism slow down by not eating on my UDs at least sometimes. Now I eat my UD calories most UDs.

Yes, Cece, I felt like it was CRAZY to eat that many calories, and was sure my body would turn it right to fat. Having done this now for a little bit, I would recommend you definitely make an effort to eat close to your UD calories. Our stats are not too far apart. I have 2272 UD calories, and I'm getting there. Sometimes I'm eating big spoons of peanut butter after dinner to get there, but I think it really is important. And the proof is that I've now lost 10 pounds in 30 days. Gotta love it!

WTG LoCarbGal. 10 lbs already, wow.

Cede the UD calories do matter, especially at the beginning. You need the nourishment for the DDs.

Oh, just wait until you really get into this counter-intuitive WOE!

You will find yourself going to bed on an UUAD (up-up-and-away-day, I ate too much day) scared of what the scale is going to say in the morning. After all, you usually bounce 1.5 pounds after a normal, right-on-the-money calorie UD. And, in the morning the scale says you remained the same or hit a new low.

Most of us get over the guilt pretty quickly

I would eat up to your Up Day numbers for two reasons. First, because you may really need the fuel to get through your down days. Second, because some day your up day numbers aren't going to be that high, and you will thank your lucky stars that you didn't let your metabolism fall so low that you can only maintain on a glass of water and a saltine cracker.
