I just got my book and it answers this question in the FAQ. Here are the major points of the answer:

Q: I don't want to do down days on the weekend. Can I do them on Monday, Wednesday and Friday?

A: Many people find it easiest to do Monday, Wednesday and Friday as down days and make either Saturday or Sunday or both up days. This works well and clearly maintains the activation of the anti-inflamitory process....... (then he cautions that if you are going to do this you track EVERYTHING you eat...up to the minute)

.........Another strategy would be to make Sunday and "in-between" day, meaning that you still restrict to some extent but eat more than you would on a regular down day. Some Alternate-Day dieters have found this works for them while others have found that calculating in-between-day calories just adds to their stress and, therefore, becomes counterproductive. It's a matter of knowing yourself and what works for you.

But then again he also suggests you only weigh in once a week which doesn't give me the accountability I need to succeed so I've agreed to disagree with him on some points!

I think for me personally I would really like to make Monday, Wednesday and Friday my Up Days once I am in maintenance (8 more pounds!). Until then I've been convinced by some of the succesful JUDDDers here on LCFs not to mess with the rotations.


I NEGU! Do you?
