It shocked me too, but I assume the person who did it must have been going through some difficult personal issue to lash out in such a way. However, it's water under the bridge. I wouldn't have even brought it up but for the possibility that this poster had encountered something or someone similar on these boards that prompted her to worry about our militancy!

Welcome! Totally right!

Experiment, Experiment, Experiment.

Find a few online calculators or ask your doctor to calculate your RMR (resting metabolic rate). Then, if low DDs are hard, eat below your rmr on DD and above on UD. As Yam-Yam says, sirtuin production happens every time you eat low - over time your eating needs will probably change.

Pay attention to how hungry you are every morning and figure out if there are foods that 'carry' forward to the next day. Try eating tiny meals every hour on DD. Try fasting. Try having two DDs in a row. Play with - and become friends with your food and your body! Do you do better with higher fat/lower volume? Do you flourish on veggies? Does eating more protein do it for you?

Always, always, always on DDs have foods planned in small caloric amounts so, if you do get hungry, you can satisfy that hunger without lifting the fridge and pouring it into your mouth.

If you do realize you just cleaned out the pantry with a side of ice cream, don't panic, don't get mad at yourself, don't even despair. Just figure out what triggered the Roman Feast and make plans to avoid the trigger in the future.

We are unbelievably fortunate here: lots of BUDDDs are really curious about the science behind the WOE. They research (and in the last year there have been a lot serious studies about IF/calorie restriction) and they share what they learn. The info they provide is invaluable - and gives us new ways to experiment.

Obviously, I am an experimenter. JUDDD is the most downright fun WOE I have ever encountered...and I am finding for the first time, maintenance is easier and even more fun!

I really, really believe coming here often is a huge key to success. Reading, asking questions, answering questions, joining in experiments and discussions - this virtual, caring community - is key to my success. I hope it is key to yours too!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

, particularly the use of the phrase, "side of ice cream."

You know, as much as my heart breaks for anyone fearing militant nastiness here, I've got this sit-com going in my head all the time now, in which Carly tells people to shape up or ship out, and Cindy says, "well what did you expect, you loser," and Cici says, "just toughen up, bozo," etc. And Kimberly! Watch out for that meanie! Dawn would tell people to give up because JUDDD can only work for her. Nancy would remind us that we're not smart enough to get this. PJ would just throw her hands up and ignore us when we need help.
Really, this is taking up way too much time in my head. (Otherwise I'd do more of us. I don't mean to leave anyone out.)

This is the sweetest place on earth, truly, filled with people who understand the ups and downs and just want to celebrate together. Thanks to everybody for creating this space.

we have had some "militant nasties" in the past. I do remember. Those days seem to be gone, thank god. Dieting is hard enough without shaming and insults. I love this board and its compassionate and loving support for everyone. It creates an atmosphere of caring and acceptance that is not easy to find on the web.

No one has ever been militant with me and I've changed my calorie levels all over the place. Everyone has been NOTHING BUT ENCOURAGING. I don't post often, but I check in here a lot because all of these ladies (and some gentlemen) are so inspiring and are so welcoming. I encourage you to keep checking in - at least to read here. You can learn some interesting tricks here!

Part of the beauty of JUDDD is that there's nothing militant about it. It's about balancing out our calories, our mindset, and our lives. So I think you're going to do really wonderfully here.

And I have never met such nice people as on this board. They are amazing.
I went back and read the other responses and this made me . Glad you still came back after that... Some people find way too much enjoyment in being "mean girls" on the internet. They are just unhappy people.

Stephanie: I do hope you reported that person.

The only time I remember someone being negative was when a lady came here from another LC forum and yelled at us for eating candy at Easter and saying we don't belong on LCF because we eat carbs and have too much fun.

(Around that time there were lots of jokes and stories about pants on the ground and wine drinking and favorite Easter candy and such and maybe it was all too much for someone who does not know how truly crazy we are).

I read some of her posts on other boards like the lower lobby and I'm telling you, that lady was grumpy!

Sometimes I've ventured on to threads on another forum where lots of people seem very irritable.

I always think they are just HUNGRY and should switch to JUDD so they can enjoy UDs and cookies!!!
