! You can do it! I realized the other day that I have been doing JUDDD for 8 months, and I wouldn't have believed I could stick with it that long. But I absolutely love this WOE! I hope you do too!

Hi all...Question....

I have been working out at least 5 days a week since April 1st. . should I recalculate my ud and dd. I have been sticking with my no activity calorie amounts from the juddd calculator.

little or no work out
UD-1966
DD-393

working out 3-5 days a week.
UD-2539
DD-508

I am a little concerned because I haven't seen any drops since the beginning of the month, and wondered if it is because I am not consuming as many cals as I should.
According to the new calculation I should be consuming more than 500 cals on my ud.
I need advice from those who have had the same experience, because I am terrified of upping my cals this much and having the scale leaping up.

thanks!

Well, YMMV, but my experience with starting to exercise in early March was that I stalled. At about the same time, I re-calculated my calories after losing some and reduced both UD and DD calories to the calculated numbers. When I left my DD cals at the low end and upped my UD calories back to where I was before I re-calculated, I started losing well again.

I don't really subscribe to adding back your exercise calories, unless you're feeling badly at the lower levels. But, I do see in myself that a wider swing between DD and UD calories really works.

Just letting your body adjust to the newly added exercise can take a few weeks too. It's a pain, but just seems to go with the territory.

thanks LCG.
I too am on low carb and believe because of that I have had no problems with fatigue while working out or during the day. I was thinking it is because I am in the mode of burning fat. I was thinking about giving myself more time to see if I lose, but am concerned that if I weight too long to change that I may get discourage because of not seeing any loss. I am thinking I will stay where I am because I know I will be obsessed that eating more will make me gain. crazy huh!
thanks again....

Hi Karen, this is a tricky one.

I would say just keep on keeping on, but if you do feel discouraged I would favour adding a few calories to your UDs rather that the DDs, to increase that calorie gap.

I am glad you feel good and not tired, and I am a fan of LC but with JUDDD most people feel full of energy, it is one of the greatest benefits.

Keep asking the questions and let us know how you get on. That way we all learn.

Well said, Cindy! It's when we all share our individual experiences that we learn so much from each other. Most likely if something is an issue for you, you're not alone; someone else likely has the same problem.

As a side note, I am another one who has much better control over eating when I limit carbohydrates. I also just simply feel better as well.

Hi, I'm new to this message board and I've read about JUDDD and decided to give it a try to lose the last 15 pounds. I've been doing a Primal WOE for about a year and I've lost 60 lb's that way and before that I lost 80 with just eating better overall and doing a bunch of exercise. I usually have no issues Fasting for about 24 hours ending with a normal meal at night so the DD shouldn't be that hard and the 2 DD's I've had I ended up around eating 570 calories for dinner and in a protein shake before bed. Started on 4/10 with the DD and I'm down 4.8 pounds today which I don't think was much water weight since I've been around 50g - 70g carbs a day eating Primal. The DD's don't seem to impact my cardio or lifting so I don't think I will have to shift my workout schedule to coincide with my UD's which I was afraid I would have to do. Hopefully JUDDD will help me break through this plateau and drop the final 15 pounds.

Mike

Thanks, just trying to find what works long term and this seems promising. Everyone on here seems to be doing a great job and seeing so many people being successful for long periods shows how sustainable this can be.

! JUDDD isn't a fast loss like HCG, but it is enjoyable- that is for sure!

Hi everyone! I am doing JUDDD, started on April 1st.
I first read all I could on your JUDDD site, even going way back like a year or more ago. Also bought Dr. Johnson's book and have read that.
My name is Michele, I'm 47 (still not used to that!), married and have 2 beautiful daughters. Laura is 21 and down syndrome, and Amber is 10.
We live in suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia.
I feel like I know some of you already from reading y'alls postings!
I have lost 15.6 pounds so far since April 1st.
I'm not doing LC or anything. I did LC two years ago, lost about 40 pounds. It greatly relieved my fibromyalgia, but I just couldn't stay with it. I love rice, potatoes, fruit, bread and all that.
I had given up on losing for a long time, but then I started reading the JUDDD threads and it renewed my hope.
So proud of how great so many of you have done, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.

Michelle! You are doing FANTASTIC! Having a great start like that really keeps you motivated to stick to it, doesn't it? I'm glad you've been reading up. It'll really help you as you move forward. Glad to have you here!

Hi everyone, I'm trying again as well. I was JUDDing last summer and loving it, but then hit some major stress (including my son being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes) and did more than my share of emotional eating, gaining back the almost 40 pounds that I had lost. I can still remember after getting into onederland saying to myself "don't sabotage yourself this time", but life throws things our way that we cannot control, and I am not beating myself up about it.

As soon as I decided to come back to JUDD and spent the last week mentally preparing myself, I knew I'd be back at LCF because this board was such an inspriation to me last year.

Looking forward to traveling this road with you all, veterans and newbies alike! Good luck and I hope to be back soon to meet you.

I love Judd this am I weighed in at 160lb I am so pumped. This is so easy to do without buying anything extra. I try to eat from noon to six or one to seven. That really helps me on a DD to not eat before noon. Yesterday was my DD I had a 5oz cold cooked potato at noon and last night I had 100 calories in popcorn a really good day. Today is my UD and I've had two bacon sandwiches so far yummy.....go JUDD!

Oh boy, after reading all of your wonderful stories about how life threw a curve and how you all have managed to pick yourself up, dust off and get back on track, I feel inspired to share my story:

My mother went into the hospital back in January for what turned out to be a minor appendectomy (I'd had my appendix out when I was 12 so I didn't bother to fly to VA to be with her because the doc said she'd be out in a couple days). Well, long story short, they nicked her colon during surgery and she ended up with a perforated colon, then went into septic shock and died of multiple organ failure. At least I did fly up there to be with her when she wasn't bouncing back as fast as I thought she should and I had a gut feeling that something was wrong. Again, long story short, she died in the ICU while I was holding her hand and begging her to keep fighting to live....

Well just when I thought I was going to die from the grief of it all, my dad (who had been the one in bad health for the last 10 years because of emphysema due to smoking), was then diagnosed with melanoma and given less than 6 months to live...(he'd been going to the doctor and getting treatment (chemo) but he and my mother had decided to keep it from me because they knew it would upset me...well my dad called me after I'd come back home to FL from VA after my mom's funeral and told me OVER THE PHONE that he had less than 6 months to live and then the ICING ON THE CAKE:

I had been adopted as a baby when my mother had had a relationship at 19 years old with an older married man and had gotten pregnant with me...my dad told me that my mom intended to take the secret to the grave but the day she died she told my dad (while I had gone to the hospital dining room to grab something to eat after not eating for days), to tell me the truth if she died (which she did) and he (my dad) felt he had to tell me the truth because my mother made him promise on her deathbed....

Sooooo.....I was devastated and am still very, very tender over this whole thing and have managed to emotionally eat myself into gaining over 30 pounds since January!

However, I think the Lord has answered my prayers and sent me here to y'all for both healing and dieting help and if I'm right about who you seem to be from your posts and the way you treat each other, I'm in the right place, with the right peeps, at the right time...

So thanks to all of you for being caring, encouraging and kind and allowing me to finally be able to talk about what's just happened to me and helping me put the pieces of what feels like my broken life back together

Oh FP! You've been through so much. I'm glad you could be with your mom at the end, but so so sorry that a simple surgery had to go so wrong. Has your dad passed too, or is he still battling the melanoma?

I can tell from your post that you are a strong person. Gaining the weight is so understandable. Sometimes it's all we can do just to survive, and eating is a small comfort so we take it where we can get it. But now you're ready to make yourself a priority, and finding JUDDD is that first step. I'm so glad you found us here, and I know you'll be able to do it!

Oh my dear Patty, I am so very sorry for all of this trauma that you have had recently. Sometimes things just come in waves and it is all we can do to hold on. I have also struggled with weight gain after major life events occurred.

It's hard to lose our moms. Mine went in for a routine allergy shot and died from anaphylaxis 29 years ago. Even though I have now spent half of my life without her here, I still miss her so very much. Be kind and gentle with yourself, especially now while you have so much to process. I am so sorry for all of your events and no room to breathe in between.

This is a wonderful, supportive group. We will be here for you.

Kimmie

LCG Yes my dad's still hanging on...he's heartbroken and I honestly don't think
he'll last much longer but he's still trying (I call him every day but can't go spend time with him because I work and have already missed 3 weeks this year because of my mom's situation)

Dawn & Kimmie Y'all have no idea how much your posts mean to me and your offers of support are so generous and comforting I'm already feeling better about things

Sorry my post was soooo long but once I started letting it out, it just flowed like a river...was actually kinda cathartic if that's the right word for it


Oh and I've decided I'm going to start JUDDDD this Friday the 19th which would have been my mother's 72nd birthday had she lived...

And all you roomies who still have your mothers...please try not to take your mom for granted...no one on this planet will EVER love you more than your mother and she is quite simply irreplaceable...never, ever forget that!

Patty, I am not often reduced to tears, but your post really did for me. What a lot to get your head and your heart around. You are coping with so much just now, may I just say what a wonderful mother and father you had, and he really has been your father.

I lost my Mother when I was only 18. But we were so close, I was blessed. My daughters are now 44 and 46 and I can't imagine life without them.

I really look forward to getting to know you better and I am confident that JUDDDing will help you lose the weight you are struggling with. It may not be the fastest plan ever but, oh boy, it has to be one of the most enjoyable.

Post often, join our April Newbies thread and get to know all the wonderful supportive people here.

Is that one of the primitive methods?

JUDDD stands for Johnson's Up DAy/Down Day diet, and involves fasting every other day...not actually fasting, but VERY low calorie, 500 to start, then your individual calculated amount, and a normal calorie level the "other" day.

This method "turns on" beneficial microhormones that rebuild and repair your cells, and help reboot your own metabolism...in a nutshell. There is SO much info available in this forum, please read on!
