Two-week induction question...

Hi there~

I will be starting JUDDD on Monday, Nov. 26th. I have been perusing these boards gathering all the info I can. I am coming upon reaching my goal this week. I am currently on hHCG until Friday, then will be in the next phase(P3) for a week. Thereafter, I need a good maintenance plan...JUDDD seems to be a good one.


I have been to the JUDDD website, and the calculator says I should be consuming 369/1847 for 20% weight loss and ranges up to 1108/1847 for 60% maintenance. I'm not certain where I am going to settle in yet. I would certainly welcome a little bit more losses, but I want to give my body a break over the holidays and try to maintain while enjoying the holidays, too After the New Year, I may jump back in to weight loss mode again. I've been going heavy duty since Mar. 20th and have lost 100+ lbs...so I need a break

My question is this...

During the 2-week induction phase...the website states that only 500 calories should be consumed. So...does that mean I should consume 500 calories? Or does that mean I consume up to 369(my DD calories)? And others who have higher DD calories beyond 500, only are allowed to consume up to 500 for those 2 weeks?

What do most people follow? I'm sure the book probably goes in to more details...but I have not purchased it to read yet.

Thank you!!!

Dr J suggests the 500 cal 2 week induction period because most people starting JUDDD have no experience of fasting and many are even afraid of 500 calories. He says that a 0 cal fast is the best possible option but that is it unattainable to most of us.

Your own number, 369, or wherever you decide is right for you, is a fine place to start for someone as experienced with fasting as you are.

But, if you are struggling it is nice to know that all those other numbers are there for you. You are not a 'failure' if you choose a higher number.

Angela! And, congratulations on your awesome weight loss!!!

I'm sure you will get a lot of good input from wise JUDD BUDDs.

Many people who want to lose weight start right from the beginning on the higher range of calories for DDs and still lose. Check what your numbers would be at 45% for DDs.

I do have Dr. J's book and even he finds it hard to go really low on DDs and in fact sticks to 50% if I recall correctly. It's been a while since I read the book. I probably need a refresher course.

The purpose of "induction" or the first 2 weeks is to activate your SIRT1 gene and get the sirtuin enzymes building up in your system. Dr. J explains the benefits of that happening. Some include causing the body to burn stored fat and also prevent the body from storing excess calories as fat. In most people, appetite suppression becomes another benefit.

I'm sure you will love this forum. It's very active and there is all kinds of information to take in.

If you have not checked out the sticky about Benefits of Intermittent Fasting, you should. There are some great videos and links to articles posted there.

Again, ! Congratulations! And we all look forward to having you here and getting to know you more and more!

Thank you Cindy for responding. I appreciate it so much

I do feel the same way in regards that I have been "fasting" on 500 calories for a long time...8 months now...off & on with small breaks. Even now...I am not quite reaching 500 calories...generally just lean protein/veggies for lunch & dinner. Rarely, do I eat the 2 fruits allowed daily, and haven't touched the starches in a long time...BUT, it was while on HCG, which greatly suppresses the hunger. I rarely experience hunger now.

I will defintely be playing with my numbers. I'm gonna try the low end for my DD's, and then if I am hungry by later evening...I have a cushion up to 500 cals

Again, thank you...

Thank you so much Yam-yam!!!! I am so looking forward to joining you all...the JUDDD family

I am suspecting that my SIRT1 gene may already be somewhat activated because of the HCG...starvation per se via food, but then the HCG attacks the stored abnormal fat, signaling the body that it is okay...kwim? Not exactly every other day like JUDDD, but similar.

I have read some of the IF threads & articles...they have really helped understand the process better. I usually have to do a lot of digging & scoping out info before I start a project


I am already loving this group as much as my HCG group...now I have 2 families!!!

TY TY Dawn!! I am still kinda in shock that I have finally reached a long-awaited dream. I may choose to lose a bit more in the New Year, but for now...I am happy!!! HCG has been a Godsend for me, and now I want to make sure I KEEP IT OFF! JUDDD seems to be perfect!!!

AND...you are just as amazing!!!!! 100 lbs. lost

Keep up the great work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm just starting out and on my two DD's so far I've hit right around 500 calories each time. I'm down 2.5lbs so the 500c doesn't seem to be messing anything up

I love that so many of you who have had such great success with HCG see the value of JUDDD as a wonderful maintenance tool.

For me, now that I have reached my goal, in addition to my wonderful JUDDD BUDDDs, the great attraction of JUDDD is its health benefits. And as the months go by I see more and more to convince me that this is the way for me.

Hi LCG

Thank you so much!!!!

You have done fabulous as well!!! 70+ lbs. is NOTHING to sneeze at, either!!! Keep up the great work!!!!

I am so encouraged by everyone LOVING this lifestyle. That is what I am looking for. I need to be able to LIVE and ENJOY life at times...NOT constantly have to be skimping on fun times which usually(unfortunately) revolve around food so much. I wish society wasn't like that...but it is!

I will make this program work...I lose wonderfully on LC, but I tend to fade out quickly because of limited choices(not all the time, but sometimes). I will be incorporating LC with JUDDD. And after 300+ calorie days...you are THANKFUL for yummy LC stuff Funny how that works. I am on HCG now which is 500 calories or less every day. You know what I crave???? FAT...bacon/eggs/sausages/dressings/avocados/mayo, etc...everything low-carb

Thanks again!!!
