Good morning everyone!

Keta, I never got to leave the CONUS. I did have the chance to go to Japan, but when I finally decided to go, the slot had closed. I then chose to go to Alaska, but I became ill before I was to go and ended up needing to medically retired from the Army. I needed a liver transplant. I have been retired since the age of 20!

Being a little hungry, or having lower-than-normal insulin levels apparently leads some women to feel mentally sharp, focused and also hyperaware, which can make it difficult to sleep.

Are you eating 500kcals or so on your DDs? If you have a high enough spread (the difference between your UD and DD calories, e.g. 500 and 2100) then some people here do well with a slightly higher DD that still allows them to keep that spread of approx. 1000kcals or more.

If it's the feeling of having an empty stomach, then would eating something like a bedtime snack of glucomannan pudding or a mug of broth with some gelatine give you enough of a full feeling to feel more comfortable when falling asleep?
I was also going to suggest a bedtime snack for DD evenings. I do ok with my stomach rumbling those nights, but others can't get to sleep that way, either!

WOE: JUDDD
Start Date: July 9, 2013
Hello JUDDD'ers! I'm new around here and to the JUDDD woe and just wanted to say howdy.

A little about me....I'm a 32 year old woman who has struggles with her weight from time to time depending on what's going on in my life. Stress for me equals comfort eating, which of course leads to weight gain. In October 2011 I was 175 pounds and today I am almost 220 pounds. I also suffer from PCOS which becomes worse when I gain weight.

I'm really good at sticking to extreme diets and that's my usual plan of attack on excess weight. However now I want to adopt a WOE that I can live with forever without turning my life upside down.

I think JUDDD is it for me. I started today with an UD and will be doing my first DD tomorrow using protein shakes. I also plan on doing 20 minute HIIT and strength training workouts on alternating days 6 days a week, taking Sundays off. I'm really out of shape at the moment so I'm just sticking to 40 minutes of daily walking for the first two weeks.

It's good to be here and I hope to be supported and give support as we strive to meet our goals. Mine is to achieve my target weight with a 25% body fat level by the end of the year.

Fluffy Bunny! If you're looking for a WOE for your whole life, JUDDD may just be it. I feel like I can do JUDDD or some form of IF for life and I love all the benefits it gives. Good luck! Read and post all you can - these people are a phenomenal support and just plain fun!

Thanks for the info, SlowSure

I've been having 500-600 cals on DD's, and saving 250-300 of them to have right before bed. So far, just doing protein shakes while in my first 2 weeks. Maybe adding some glucomannan powder to my last shake will help me to sleep better. Will also try your suggestion of adding gelatin to broth,..thanks !

That had to be rough,... I only did 3 years myself, and was discharged early on medical. I was happy where I was at, and didn't want to get out.

Fluffy_Bunny. You've made a well-planned start to evaluating whether JUDDD is the appropriate WOE for you and I hope that it is. JUDDD is certainly very liveable as LowCarbGirl, Flutter and others will attest.

Nice goals. I've just booked a body fat assessment (Bod Pod) for July 19 and let's just say that I expect the outcome to be considerably more than 25%, much as I'd like to work towards something like that.

Good luck and I hope that you find that you and JUDDD suit each other.

I picked up some Knox gelatin today, and was wondering how much to put in the broth. A whole packet? A spoonful?

We purchase gelatine in different ways in US and UK I'd try a flat tsp in a mug of broth, you're just looking to thicken it enough to give a good substantial mouthfeel.

Hi SlowSure! I think for me the body fat percentage is even more important that weight. I don't mind my weight being a bit higher once my body fat is healthy. So far so good on JUDD!

Well, after much reading here, much online research, and many emails between me and my dear friend Ouizoid - here I am!

DH and I started JUDD this week. Yesterday was our first Down Day and we did the Potato Hack - nothing but potatoes all day. DH was really worried that they'd rev him up and then drop him like a rock, but it didn't happen - we were both pleasantly surprised how satiating the potatoes were - and he was down nearly 2# this morning, and me about 1.5! Wowza!

So today is an Up Day and we'll be reasonable about it - we are planning to go out for dinner but have already decided on the menu - he'll have the fried calamari appetizer and a big Greek horiatikia salad, I'm gonna have the Salmon Carpaccio appetizer and probably the short ribs over polenta for dinner. A glass of wine each and that will do the job.

We're actually looking forward to more potatoes tomorrow! LOL! Who'da thunkit?

Charski and well-recruited by Ouizoid

Good beginnings reflecting your advance planning Have a super dinner tonight - both of your menus sound delightful.

Good luck with your trial of JUDDD and I hope that you and your DH discover that it suits you well, meets your needs and can adapt to your lifestyle.

Hello! Been lurking around here for awhile and decided to finally post something! I started JUDDD 7/7/2013 so it's my first week. It's going pretty well. Going a little off the rails crazy with food on the Up Days. I think i'm going to have to save the carbs for the evening, that way maybe I won't have cravings all day. I decided not to buy the protein shakes at the store and instead am making a smoothie on the Down Days. I drink that about 6 in the evening and that works out pretty well. I make it with kale, cabbage, cucumber, goji berries, protein powder, blueberries, bananas, chia seeds and some coconut milk. I measure out the ingredients and it comes out to around 400 calories. My husband isn't participating but he's supportive. I haven't lost any weight yet and actually gained a pound. Maybe PMS. Anyway, I'll keep enjoying all of your posts.

Sampson1951 - good to see your post and well done for introducing yourself. It sounds like you're finding your way through what you need to assess JUDDD for yourself - such as saving the carbs for the evening.

Some other have been discussing their experiences with DDs and UDs on the July thread: July JUDDD newbies and I wonder if there might be useful advice and experience there for you.

A big welcome to all the new folks that have arrived.

I had a DD today and realized how much I treasure my UD. Stayed within the allowed calories. So far, so good. I've been doing JUDD almost two weeks. I am still motivated to go onward

I make it with kale, cabbage, cucumber, goji berries, protein powder, blueberries, bananas, chia seeds and some coconut milk. I measure out the ingredients and it comes out to around 400 calories. My husband isn't participating but he's supportive. I haven't lost any weight yet and actually gained a pound. Maybe PMS. Anyway, I'll keep enjoying all of your posts.
! So glad you decided to post. Taking part in this forum has been the difference between success and failure for me for sure. Don't worry about being slow to start losing. Some do have that, but go on to immense success. Good luck and keep posting!

I had a DD today and realized how much I treasure my UD. Stayed within the allowed calories. So far, so good. I've been doing JUDD almost two weeks. I am still motivated to go onward
I'm so glad you're still motivated Chelly! Those first couple of weeks are definitely some of the toughest. But UDs are delightful, aren't they?

DH and I started JUDD this week. Yesterday was our first Down Day and we did the Potato Hack - nothing but potatoes all day. DH was really worried that they'd rev him up and then drop him like a rock, but it didn't happen - we were both pleasantly surprised how satiating the potatoes were - and he was down nearly 2# this morning, and me about 1.5! Wowza!

So today is an Up Day and we'll be reasonable about it - we are planning to go out for dinner but have already decided on the menu - he'll have the fried calamari appetizer and a big Greek horiatikia salad, I'm gonna have the Salmon Carpaccio appetizer and probably the short ribs over polenta for dinner. A glass of wine each and that will do the job.

We're actually looking forward to more potatoes tomorrow! LOL! Who'da thunkit?
Great job Charski and welcome! I just started this week and am down around 1.5 after 4 days I think. One day I messed up a bit and made it a moderate day. I came in a little over 700 calories. My Dad showed up at my house to watch a favorite TV show and surprised mr with some chinese eggrolls and eggdrop soup to split with him. Wasn't about to tell him no that I already had my 300 calories for the day. He wouldn't get it. Anyways I'm interested in trying the potato hack. I'm sure I can find some info on the board. I have read Yennie's journal some about it. My question to you is or any one seeing this question - How much potatoes do you eat? Does it matter what kind? How they are prepared? Up to your DD calorie allotment? Because I just checked my nutrition tracker and a large plain baked potato with skin is apprx 278 calories. I only get like 360 a day.

Thanks for any advice in you can offer.

I am not a newbie only starting over. I am tired of trying new things that don't work for my body and mind anymore. My problem...drumroll...is that I eat to much. Plain and simple. I am hoping to stop that by sticking to this woe . My 1st goal is 1 month. Today is my 2nd dd and they go pretty well. It is the ud. I didn't add calories because I already know I went over by visiting a yummy,greasy,fish place. I don't have the courage to say no yet. This is going to be a 12 step program for me and I know this is the board I want to be at. I am not new to a lot of you but hopefully my being back will help someone else as well as myself. Thank you already for any and all support given or to be given...I AM BACK!!!lol
