I have used HWC throughout my entire weight loss journey. I just factor in the calories. I tried everything suggested and all of it was just not the same. I have weaned myself down to 1 t per cup in the morning on DD's and I use 2 t per cup on UD's. I am happy and satisfied so if you like the cream, just add in the calories and drink away.

Yep

Do ask when it gets confusing. Something subtle on the lines of "WHAT are you people talking about?!?!?!????" usually works

Are the DDs hard?
Yes.

Not for everyone and not forever, but in my experience the DDs are hard.

But only to start with. And by that, I don't mean that you get used to it. I mean that they actually change into something easy and, if not always pleasant, gratifying.

However, if your first few down days are atrocious and you think you're going to have a melt-down, don't think that you're doing something wrong or that the diet isn't going to work for you. It's just your body fighting.

I stuck it out and I can't tell you how grateful I am that I did. Hunger has been totally transformed for me. I'm more than six months into it now and DDs are a breeze. It's up days that I have trouble reigning it in.

It wasn't true on Atkins. If I went over my carb limit, it didn't work. In fact, sometimes it undid all my progress entirely.

It wasn't true on weight-watchers either, because the margins I was working with in daily deprivation were too small. A 100 calorie difference could actually ruin the whole day.

JUDDD is the first WOE I've ever encountered where 'do your best' actually works and it's then just a question of, 'Can I get better results with perfection? Yes. But am I still going to get some results even if I don't have a perfect day? Yup!'

I totally half-assed it through the entire month of November. And you know what happened? I still lost weight.

Thank you for that! I was very hungry around 4 this afternoon. I sent the kids to Diary Queen tonight for dinner because in didn't want to deal with food. Then I went to Walgreens to pick up a few items and decided to pick something for my remaining 250 calories. I kept going back and forth in my mind, carb or no carb, carb or no carb...finally I picked up a microwavable beef ravioli for 240 calories. Then after I cooked it and poured it into my bowl I realized the container said 'about 2 servings'. I was bummed. But I only ate half!
I think it will be nice to give my body a break from eating much every other day. I'm ready for this, bring it on!!

You can have a veggie burger with many of the fixins for that amount next time. Or a huge omelette. There are lots of ways to stretch out that 240 calories, you will learn. But it's tough to start with. Your first one is often the hardest so you're doing fantastic!

One of the many reasons we are so mellow around here is JUDDD teaches us that - contrary to normal lose-weight thinking - one size definitely does not fit all.

Some of us find the hunger monster does not wake up until we eat something solid...so we start the day with liquids. Others need to eat breakfast or they are hungry all day. Some of us eat one meal/day. Others eat about 30 calories every hour. Many of us find individual foods - some of them very unexpected - trigger hunger and discomfort. Others can eat any- and every-thing.

It is a good idea, especially at first, to figure what satisfies you most, then keep it on hand. If you need a nosh, try eating literally a bite or two (I keep baked chicken on hand for this) and drink a glass of water or tea or liquid. Then wait twenty minutes. It is amazing how a tiny bit of food - and about 40 calories - can sometimes calm what felt like starvation.

And, of course, the mantra "Hunger is not an emergency" can be a huge help.

Experiment, explore. Learn new things about how your body works.

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

Hunger is not an emergency. I really like that. I made it through yesterday. I went to bed early, like 9:00, but I got woken up and ended up chatting with a friend til midnight. And I got real hungry. And hunger pains, haven,t had that for awhile(years). But I did it! Kept thinking of what I was going to eat today. Now I'm awake and not even hungry.
Nancy, you guys ARE so mellow, I think that is what has drawn me over to this side lol.

Tex, hee hee I'm still trying to figure out a nickname, another thing that really does help is chicken broth. Make sure you keep a carton of it, if not homemade. One cup is only 10 calories and can calm the hunger beast very well most of the time. Congrats on making it through your first DD!!!

Now, enjoy your UD!!! It won't be difficult, I trust.

ETA: Also, if you like cucumbers, one cut up, peeled, and sprinkled with salt & pepper (and vinegar if you like it) is enough to help you sleep if you need a nighttime snack (16 cals for a small cuke).

"Hunger is not an emergency" has gotten me through some rough times. That thought, and knowing that it will pass and I'll be fine, is worth a million bucks.

Lol, Tex is fine. Thank you for the tips, I go to the grocery store today, and cucumber and chicken broth are on my list. Would rather make my own, but don't know how long that stays good in the fridge.
Also on my grocery list-lemon/lime for water, eggs to hb and some kind of tea for bedtime:-)

When I make chicken broth I make a lot and freeze it so I always have a supply.

Yes, hunger is not an emergency. One thought that also helps me is that there are people in the world who go to bed hungry at night, not because they are dieting, but because there is no food in the house for them to eat. I have met some of them. If they can do it, I can do it. I am blessed with so much food that I have to abstain from food in order to keep my weight down. There are those who are truly hungry.

It makes my little hunger hang it's head in shame and go away.

Very true, Luna. And very sad.

And, of course, unless a person has serious blood glucose or other physical issues, one day - even eating and drinking nada - can do no permanent harm.

HIT, Tex, whoever - if you like cooking, check out bone broth! It keeps over a week in the fridge and - at least for me - is super filling and seems to have a huge positive impact on my health...and it is a great way to use leftover bones and unused vegetable bits.

It's 4:45 pm on my first UD, I have had 573 calories and I feel good! I can eat another 1300 if I want! And I'm gonna have homemade taco pizza tonight:-)
Looking forward to seeing how I handle my DD tomorrow. Now that I've got some tricks up my sleeve.
BTW my name is Sheryl if that's easier :-)

Ann and Cheryl, if you put your name in your signature, I'll probably remember it better. I'm terrible at names, but if they're right there in your siggy, I'll use them.
