Now a question for longer time members: I am holding my DDs to 20% for the rest of the month and I've lost weight. When I decide to go to 25%, do I recalculate that on my present weight or do I figure it on the weight at which I started? I don't recall that being addressed in the book or else I missed it.

A big thank you to everyone for all the support you give here. It has helped a lot.
You got great feed back from Carol and SS. I went below 20% because the lower my DDs the better I lost. It also allowed a little wiggle room on UDs as my weight dropped and so did my UD allowance. There isn't a big difference between 312 and 200 on a DD, but I like to tag on an extra little bit on an UD if eating out.

Thanks, Carol, for the quick response. In 3 1/2 weeks I've lost 13+ pounds. I don't want to lose too fast and I'm sometimes very hungry on a DD. I think you're saying I can eat a bit more on those really hungry days and less on the not so hungry DDs. That would work for me. Thank you for the suggestion.

Thanks, SlowSure. It makes sense, it's what I'll do, and - guess what - I'm excited to do that. Yay.

Ah, Carly, thanks. I especially like your idea of allowing extra on an UD by cutting back on the DD.

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to introduce myself as a newbie - today was my first DD and I'm finding it less difficult than I thought I would (I was getting quite nervous yesterday evening). I've been reading the posts on this board for inspiration and it really helps, so thank you all for being so encouraging and positive!

I managed to lose over 30 pounds a couple of years ago doing my own variation of the Dukan diet, but a bout of food poisoning in October 2012 threw me off completely and my eating habits have never really recovered. Over 2013, I pretty much gained back all I had lost, and have been feeling really discouraged and unable to stick to any diet for more than a week or two. I'm really hoping that this sort of approach will fit well with my natural tendency to have really good willpower for very limited periods! LOL!

Today, I managed to make it until 13.30 before I ate my lunch, which was chunky beef and vegetable soup (212 calories) and I've been relying on water and hot green tea with lemon to get me through until dinner tonight, which will be Eggs Florentine (pan fry spinach in one tsp of basil-infused olive oil, then make a 'hole' in the middle and crack two large eggs into it; cover and heat gently until egg white is cooked through and yolk is still slightly dippy; serve with a dash of salt and pepper; 287 cals).

So far, so good, although I may need to go to bed earlier than usual this evening to avoid my usual temptation for late-night snacking...

to JUDDD, Rizzo76 (are you a fan of Grease or do you wear a lot of pink?)

Late night snacking is a temptation with all of the dampness in the UK at present, isn't it. YMMV (don't know if that's in the acronyms list) but if it's a problem, we have a DD recipes thread with suggestions and sugar-free jelly is always a useful fallback.

It's good to read that you're OK with your first DD so far. Do speak up if you've any questions or observations to make during this induction period. We're here to listen/respond or nod appreciatively.

Thanks for the welcome, SlowSure. I am a fan of Grease, but I mostly wear black (albeit with occasional flashes of pink...)

That's a good tip on the sugar-free jelly - I stocked up on the 10 calorie pots in various flavours when I was at the supermarket yesterday, so if I'm at the stage of gnawing an arm off I can always have one of those.

Rizzo76! We have quite the collection of UK Juddd Buddds with us now. I love it!

Making it through DD number 1 is a big deal! It's kind of scary trying a WOE so "drastic" sounding. I thought it was when I first heard of it, and judging by the reactions of my friends when I tell them what I'm doing, it does to them too! But I truly love it, and wouldn't want to try anything else at this point.

Read lots, post lots, ask lots. You'll find many wonderful people here willing to share their experiences and advice!

Hi, everyone,
I want to introduce myself. I'm Stephanie, despite my username--it was a beloved dog's name and I use it, for some reason, on sites that have to do with my health. Just my habit now, I guess.

I started low carbing in April, 2012, and by the following May had lost 85 pounds. Then I hit a 7-month stall, during which time, I kept having more and more "bad" days until sometime mid-December, I gave up and just ate how I wanted. Not a good idea. Almost 20 pounds put back on in about 6 weeks. I started back with the low carb, but found myself quite bored, even though I think low carb is a fantastic WOE. I prowled around the other boards here and after a try at Kwasniewski (actually that happened before my big gain), I started playing around with JUDDD.

I really didn't think I could do a DD. Just really didn't. But I experimented and found that, like some of the rest of you, Up days are harder! what? Anyway, I'm about 3 weeks in, have had a few UUADs (!!!) but not messing up my down days really at all.

Thanks for letting me lurk here the last few weeks and I look forward to being here.

R/Stephanie

Welcome Stephanie! I'm 3 weeks in to JUDDD after many unsustainable low carb losses (the most was 20#, no where near your awesome loss!!) so we're kinda in the same boat.. Hope you enjoy! And use this forum, it is a huge motivator for me.

Hi Stephanie, and !

I'm glad you've been lurking, because it's the best way to get the lay of the land and decide whether to try JUDDD. It's what most of us do - I did! Then I got brave and posted a question or two. And then I started and I haven't looked back since. LOVE IT!

Yes, UDs can be harder than DDs, mentally. I mean, they're enjoyable and fun, and satisfying. But the urge to keep eating is sometimes there. This will pass. It's just your head's way of compensating for things you haven't been allowing yourself to eat. You'll get all the treats out of your system, and then you'll start wanting to feed your body good, nutritious food.

Good luck! Hope to see you around all the threads!

I know the post was for Stephanie and not me, but thank you Carol! I've been having so much trouble with UD's and overeating. I just want to eat and eat after I start. And I want nothing even remotely good for me. I am so hopeful that you're right and that my body and mind will adjust soon and start craving something other than chocolate and pizza.

Thank you for the welcome, brainardt and locarbgal! I've been compensating for overdoing the up days by figuring out my daily average and what I need on the next down day to keep it steady. I found that when I factor in 7 days worth of eating, the up day isn't as scary and it helps keep me from diving headfirst into the carbs. I see I can still pull up out of the nose dive.

Yes indeed, there is hope for you both! You have to let yourself go through that adjustment period and not expect to be perfect. Lots of us go through a "Woo hoo I can eat whatever I want" for a time on UDs. Let yourself celebrate this wonderful new realization, and then you can get down to business!

Stephanie and it's good to see you here. It's odd but not that unusual how some people click straight away with DDs (usually the thing that intimidates people) but find the sudden autonomy and freedom of UDs to be almost too much to bear in the beginning.

Do you think it's an necessary over-reaction and then you'll be at peace with it? Knowing yourself and your history as you do? It is with a fair number of people - it's like when people have been lifting something heavy, then switch to something light, and they can't get the range of motion right for the first few attempts and then they adapt.

Really, what a good, sensible way to look at this - over 7 days rather than 1-2. JUDDD does encourage the level-headedness in people

LCG's advice to you both is good, as ever.

I hope you both settle down well into your rotations while you're trying out JUDDD. Do speak up with any questions or difficulties.

Carlie and the rest who have gotten to their goal this this lifestyle diet - you look great and are an inspiration to us all just getting started! I just got back on this after going through some stress in my life and am so glad I found this support system. There is so much contention between the nutritionists, doctors and research that I can hardly stand to watch the low carbohydrate, intermittent fasting vs the counting calories schools of thought. All I know is that the LC/IF, or JUDDD works for me and I will continue towards goal. I can say I feel so much better and have more mental clarity with this lifestyle than the counting calories way. I do think that one size does not fit all so this may not be the way for everyone, I am just results oriented. Thank you all for the support and suggestions to make this work. I'll be thin for the first time since high school in 2014!!! Ya!

!!!! JUDDD is really flexible in that it works with LC, vegan, SAD or within an eating window. It's great. You know your UD/ DD calories and go from there!!!!!

Thanks Carly/all!
I am so happy lost 3 pounds last week on lc/if I am on... I was never able to lose that much just low carb around <50gr. Now I stick to 10 carbs or less.

Yesterday was my DD or IF day, I was tired and cold, good thing it was Sunday. I just took it easy - had a nap and forgot to have my 3pm snack/drink of diet soda... For dinner I had my regular 2 eggs.

I've been reading from Dr Johnson's website. I did my DD & UD calories calculation and it pretty much matched to what I was already doing. Also, I had been taking the resveratrol, b stress vits, etc...

I started the end of January 202/187/130 5'6.5" You guys have a great day!

All I know is that the LC/IF, or JUDDD works for me and I will continue towards goal. I can say I feel so much better and have more mental clarity with this lifestyle than the counting calories way. I do think that one size does not fit all so this may not be the way for everyone, I am just results oriented. Thank you all for the support and suggestions to make this work. I'll be thin for the first time since high school in 2014!!! Ya!
Glad to see you here!

BrummyGal.

LC shakes are fine for DDs. In his first edition of the book, Dr Johnson recommended that people should stick with meal replacement shakes (of whichever sort you prefer) for DDs during induction. He thought it was important that people got into the rhythm of rotations and discovered any potential sticking points without needing to fret about kcal counts of special meals.

If you've identified a LC shake that you enjoy, have a good UD to set yourself up for your first DD and then shake away.

I know it's near the end of Feb but you might introduce yourself here to other : February JUDDD Newbies and then reintroduce yourself in the upcoming March one if that suits you.

I used to do no carb shakes isopure which has the protein to keep you satisfied, I actually liked the vanilla the best and made this into a latte... My husband still opts for these at least once a week. He uses the yoo-hoo chocolate (also LC) in the vanilla and seems to like it. Lately, though, I am just doing the LC food since I need to chew, I guess. Good luck on your start! Happy to find this site myself as I have been on less than a month.

Have a great day,
Julie

Hi Julie! Great quotes you shared. I especially love the one from Napoleon Hill - love him and his message!

BG! Yep, shakes are a great thing to use to start. I never used them and ate real food, just w/in my calories, but whatever works for you. I will say that you MAY change your mind about soups and broths. I never liked them either. But after a year or so on JUDDD, and the DD shivers as we call them really kicked in, I've been really enjoying Progresso Light soups. I'm still surprised at myself that I like them! Good luck!

Thank you all for your welcome messages. I have now posted on Feb's newbie site as per recommendation. I live in the UK and some of the things you mentioned do not seem to be available here, so I may be asking lots of questions. One straight away, I do not have the book and have had problems trying to find it here, so if you are just starting this woe is it ok to start a light exercise routine or should I wait a while?

And yes, exercise is fine. Whatever you are comfortable with.
