Thanks for the help...I just want to try and keep my carbs semi low, low sugar also and my favs are all sugar or carby JUNK.......i am almost done with menus so will pass them on to have u all take a peel

I found a recipe for lc pizza and the crust is made from cheese, crm chees, pork rinds and something else. But anyway I found it on the low carb friends website and it looks delish! Only trouble is I only get 1741 on UD, so a slice of pizza can really do some damage on the calorie count. Hate for my whole day worth of cals to go to a couple slices of pizza, but it's ooohh, so yummy. Dang it, why does everything that taste good have to be so bad for you. lol Rule of thumb to lose weight: If it taste good spit it out!

I was just curious about what to do after induction "if anything" on my DD calories. Right now im just doing recommended 500. The calculator said like 300 something, so should I go down lower on my DD after induction?

I looked at the calculator and 60% is maintance mode?I am doing 25% so are you saying on My MD I can eat up to 65%
Sorry but this sorta threw me.I'm still learning ya know

I'm intrigued...

I'm coming in at the tale end of this month's newbies chat, but I'm very interested in JUDDD. I've been doing a modified version of Dukan since Jan 5, and the past couple weeks just concentrating on Low carb. I've lost 18.5 since Jan 5, so I'm quite happy about that.

I do a very strenuous boot camp workout 4 days a week so I looked up my calories on the calculator it said 742 for DD and 2442 for UD. Can that be correct?? I just plugged in moderate exercise since the strenuous said 5-6 days and I only do 4.

I wouldn't have a problem with the 742 days, but 2442??? That scares me. Plus, I really didn't want to go back to counting calories. Guess I'd have to for awhile...just to be sure I'm on track. On the DD, I'll be able to keep the tally in my head, but the UD's will require some tracking.

I'm doing a "Transformation Challenge" at boot camp that ends March 30. Whoever loses the highest percentage of their starting weight wins some nice prizes including an iPad Mini. There were 45 people at the start and I have no idea how the others are doing, its all a big secret. Anyway, I'm not sure if I want to try this new plan before the challenge is over.

What were your losses like the first few weeks of JUDDD? Sorry to write such a book for my first post here! BTW, I'm 53 years old, hypothyroid, post menopausal...what a combo, huh?

I look forward to getting to know you all!

After the first 2 weeks you shouls start to aim for the number the calculator gives you. Some people continue to lose with 500, but it may be a slower loss.

A MD is equal to 60%, not 65%. I know you are eating higher DDs, but I'd stick with 60% for MD. I know you have said the weight loss feels slow. It could be the higher DDs or the MD every week. I think you are doing great, but if you feel the loss is too slow those could be possible reasons.

We recommend that people try to start with 20% WLM with little to no exercise and than adjust after a ew weeks if the calories are not working well. I really think Dr. J's calculator figures more calories in than most of us actally burn when exercising. As people we also really over estimate how much we burn. It is the general feeling around here that we do not want to add back the calories we worked soo hard to burn off. HTH and

good morning...I am also just starting this, well Mon as a matter of fact...I was shocked also to see my up day numbers...I was like I can never eat that many cals...but from what i have been reading, it is best to get close to your up day and somewhere i read ( i have been researching this for weeks), I read that if you cant hit those high days to try and at least double your down day number for this to work properly........

I am with you also, I am 45, hypothyroid, high cholesterol, menopausal, and have migraines and insomnia.......quite the combo myself...

I am excited to get started...good luck....we can do this

What Carly said.

But I just want to add that I exercise on DDs when I eat as litre as 200, and some when completely fasting and I never add back the calories. Why would anyone work out as hard as you are and then sabotage it by eating back their hard work? If you feel you need the 700 or so then okay but, if you can manage less, all to the good.

Interestingly it is on a an UD morning when you may find your workout tougher as you will have had less nourishment on the previous day. So make sure you eat something before you exercise on your UD. ( I don't, but I am 65 and don't exercise as strenuously as you would, also I feel nauseous if I eat before a work out.)

60% tops for your MD, I am afraid Roberta.

Thank you everyone for your replies! I really think I'm going to give this a go! I'm going to be doing a lot of reading the next few days and may just start March 1st. Please be ready to hold my hand if the scale goes up and I panic!

I'll be interested to hear what they have to say on Good Morning America...I think that's the show you referenced. Please post your thoughts on it!

Thanks again and I'll talk to you all soon!

Kissa...
What I don't understand is that 35% is the top WLM the rest are maintance?
Why would anyone trying to loose eat 60%
I have been trying to stay at 25% on DD & UD but have gone over on DD. However I am thinking I should still loose if I do go over a tad on DD if it isn't over the 35% WLM.Is that correct?

Here are my numbers @ light exercise 1-3 days a week (I try to do something to keep moving at least once or twice a week on my UD
20% WLM UD 2364 DD 473
25% WLM UD 2364 DD 591
30% WLM UD 2364 DD 709
35% WLM UD 2364 DD 827
I have on a DD went to the 30% but I haven't ever gone over that.

Hi Lori &
I was concerned about the high UD numbers too. But you need them to get through the DD.The ladies are truly very helpful & informative. They have lost a lot of weight and know what and how to do JUDDD.Of course everyone is different they can only tell you what works best for them. I wish you the best on the challenge and certainly hope you win!! Juddd will be here when you are ready for it But the UD claories are high for a reason and it does say in the book you don't have to eat all of them, eat till full, but do not over eat intentionally!

I have only been doing this since Feb4 I have 4.2 lbs off. I was hoping for 8lbs a month but I have been eating at a higher DD % so it will be slower.
But I have to have what I can live with and mostly stick with for LIFE!
Your numbers will go down as the weight goes down but I imagine your appetite will have gone down too.Anyway I certainly hope and it will.
Keep posting as it truly does help to be accountable to someone.And I have found no comdenation from anyone here even with all my silly questions

They have many calorie calculators on line that are very helpful in helping with that dreaded chore of counting calories!I use one that is free and it has a community and recipes and exercises and recipe builder that you put in the items of the recipe and servings, and it gives you the nutrition per servings it has many different things I enjoy it alot.It is also free.But we are not allowed to mention the names or give web addresses on this thread Sorry You can just do web searches and I am sure you will find many of them! Hope to see you again!! Nice to meet you

After you get the hang of DDs, you can start working at lowering them to what the calculator says. However, many of us eased into this over a period of time-it took me a a couple months to actually get my DD calories at the same calorie number as what the calculator number was. Take it slow, and see how it goes

I'm doing a "Transformation Challenge" at boot camp that ends March 30. Whoever loses the highest percentage of their starting weight wins some nice prizes including an iPad Mini. There were 45 people at the start and I have no idea how the others are doing, its all a big secret. Anyway, I'm not sure if I want to try this new plan before the challenge is over.

What were your losses like the first few weeks of JUDDD? Sorry to write such a book for my first post here! BTW, I'm 53 years old, hypothyroid, post menopausal...what a combo, huh?

I look forward to getting to know you all!

I have been trying to stay at 25% on DD & UD but have gone over on DD. However I am thinking I should still loose if I do go over a tad on DD if it isn't over the 35% WLM.Is that correct?

Here are my numbers @ light exercise 1-3 days a week (I try to do something to keep moving at least once or twice a week on my UD
20% WLM UD 2364 DD 473
25% WLM UD 2364 DD 591
30% WLM UD 2364 DD 709
35% WLM UD 2364 DD 827
I have on a DD went to the 30% but I haven't ever gone over that.
That's why a MD is only used to change your rotation, not to lose weight. Many of us find that we stall or lose very, very slowly when we use MDs. It's not for weight loss. Effectively, you're doing 3 DDs a week (the magic for weight loss), 3 UDs (what keeps you out of starvation mode) and a "maintenance day." It works for some, not for others.

Most of us also use the option for no exercise, even if we exercise lightly, to help speed up weight loss. I exercise pretty vigorously at least 3 days per week and still use the calories for no exercise, even in maintenance. You're losing with what you're doing, so if you're comfortable with the rate of loss, keep it up. If you want to lose faster, I'd suggest no MDs and calories set at no exercise. JMHO though.

I am still new too (so please correct me if I am wrong) , but this is my understanding....
You don't want to do two dd's in a row, so your md needs to be 60% to keep your body from going into starvation mode.

I am not sure what day is your md, but this is what I assume your week would look like.

Sun dd 25% (591)
Mon md 60% (1418)
Tues ud (2364)
Wed dd 25% (591)
Thur ud (2364)
Fri dd 25% (591)
Sat ud (2364)

Hope this helps. Also, I think it is recommended to do the calculations based on no exercise. I think some of the experts around here have found that it counts for much more than what we actually burn. That might also be why you are losing slower than you might like, which by the way you are doing great!

This is correct. Although it may seem counterproductive, its actually better to do 2 UDs in a row than 2 DDs.
I am not sure what day is your md, but this is what I assume your week would look like.

Sun dd 25% (591)
Mon md 60% (1418)
Tues ud (2364)
Wed dd 25% (591)
Thur ud (2364)
Fri dd 25% (591)
Sat ud (2364)

This would also be a correct rotation, where you do a full UD before your DD. You don't want to do a MD to a DD because you need to go into your DD well nourished from an UD.

Hope this helps. Also, I think it is recommended to do the calculations based on no exercise. I think some of the experts around here have found that it counts for much more than what we actually burn. That might also be why you are losing slower than you might like, which by the way you are doing great!
Also true statements regarding exercise. We discussed this more throughly in an exercise thread about 2-3 weeks ago. We recommend using the "no exercise" setting on the calculator & hitting your numbers as close as possible. Yes, 25-35% is still WLM but it will be slower weight loss than at 20% or below.

I have never personally used an MD as I've used potatoes to get me through. I'm kinda an all-or-nothing gal so I suspect MDs would not agree with me. But 60% is maintenance so expect a small stall using an MD. Having said that,any JUDDD BUDDs used an MD each week to keep their UD/DD rotation on the same days of the week for family & planning reasons & were successful so it obviously depends on what works for you.

While I realize each person is an individual and not everything works for everybody, one overwhelming trend I've noticed when reading back threads is that when people report Juddd isn't working for them, they almost inevitably and up confessing to a series of minor or a few major tweaks in the program. Things like initial calculator numbers being too high accounting for too much exercise (me), not sticking to 500 or below on DDs, too many UUADs, using too many MDs, not tracking cals, etc. It was recommended to me when I started to calculate at 20% & no exercise, stick to it for 2 weeks, no tweaks & learn this WIE before trying to fiddle with it. I think this is a really valuable recommendation.

ok as a newbie I have a conflicting question..and the answer may be every person is different...

I read that in the book, the doc says you dont have to eat all your UD cals, as long as you were eating at least double what your dd is.....has anyone else read this, or was this source off..

I know me personally the lower the cals, the better I lose..so my UD number really scares me....I am sure this has been talked about alot, but when researching that is what I read

Thoughts please and thank you

FYI, it was on the docs site that I read you didnt have to eat all them on your UD, if your not hungry...

Yep, everyone is different. Sorry! Personally, for me, eating all my UD calories has been important to my losing. Very counterintuitive, and it took me awhile to really internalize it and accept it. I think it's a key to our bodies' realizing it's not going to starve, and can use energy and even burn fat.

That said, you'll just have to see what works for you. But I recommend you eat very close to your calculated calories every day for a few weeks and see what happens.

Thanks friend
I always do MD on Mondays the rest are UD & DD. On my MD I eat between 591(DD) and 2364(UD) so usuallly I eat around 1500 or less.

Don't know if I could do a potato day.How many do you get and how does it work.I have diabetes2 so not certain if that would be a good choice for me?
I have considered doing 2 UD in a row but not sure if that would be better than doing a MD?
I may try doing higher % on Friday & Sundays instead of having a MD.I may try that this next week and see if my losses are any better?
Whast do you think?OR anyone elses thoughts reading this?

I would also like to know when are we suppose to re-figure our calories?

Interestingly it is on a an UD morning when you may find your workout tougher as you will have had less nourishment on the previous day. So make sure you eat something before you exercise on your UD. ( I don't, but I am 65 and don't exercise as strenuously as you would, also I feel nauseous if I eat before a work out.)

60% tops for your MD, I am afraid Roberta.
Another typo error I meant 60% not 65

on a potato day you simply eat potatoes only with no added fat. there's a thread called 'a DD hack' and other various potato threads. there are some diabetics doing this and seeing improved bs numbers. you eat till satisfied, no counting....at least i am not. yesterday was my first full day. i didn't feel full all day and i had 3 meals of potatoes between noon and 6pm. and i still never really felt full and had a dull headache all day. TODAY, tho....i wokde up feeling very good. i had a much larger portion for lunch that i did yesterday PLUS i ate them cold and feel totally satisfied and full!! they say eating them cold is more satiating...who knew!?! i like to just roast mine with sea salt and mrs dash seasoning. then cube them up and eat them cold. easy-peasy and lots of flavor!

anyway, just another idea for you....

So what is that suppose to do? Loose alot of weight or what? Wouldn't you just gain it back when you quit doing the potato hack?

I like the frozen hash browns and steak fries are those allowed? or does it have to be a potato you cook yourself?Then again I like real potatoes sliced and baked like french fries

Also if I do this on my DD only do I count the calories or just eat the potatoes until I am full?
