A thought...

I am already anticipating my first DD tomorrow. I suddenly recalled back when I was in college and had very little money, I would try to eat things that would be cheap and filling. Notably I remember popcorn and Ramen noodles. Would this be a good DD tactic?

popcorn-yes, you can have a cup of lite popcorn for only 15-20 caloriesbut Ramen noodles have quite a bit of calories. As long as they fit in your calorie allotment, they will be ok though.
Also be careful because i think each package actually containts 2 servings.

Carbohydrates that are low in nutrition tend to make me hungry, so popcorn and ramen wouldn't work for me, but you may be different. Maybe see how much popcorn and ramen you can eat for 500 calories (cheap in calories, not cost at the store) and whether that seems like a reasonable amount of food for you (plus no calorie fluids). If so, go for it.

I use the strategy of lowcalorie protein (boiled eggs, lowfat cheese, turkey or chicken meat without skin, boiled shrimp), crunchy lowcalorie vegetables (celery sticks, radishes), and/or small amounts of fat in fluid (half-and-half in lots of cups of flavored tea). But there are many different approaches, and you just need to find the one that feels right to you.

Potatoes without fat is a good strategy. Not expensive and pretty filling. Spuds have good protein and overall nutrition, so they're quite satisfying for a lot of folks. There is a lengthy thread called "A DD Hack" down the page here about the magic of potatoes.

I am another one that uses protein to ward off hunger. I start everyday (UD/DD) with an egg or eggs for breakfast. Coffee with HWC and I can last until well after lunch. Broth for lunch will usually keep me until dinner where it is broth again or antoher egg. I do very low calorie DD's and this is what works for me. I can eat celery since I don'y really like it without wanting more but I tried baby carrots one day and wanted to eat the whole 2 pound bag I had.

Popcorn could cause an insulin spike that makes you feel very hungry - and on a DD that would be a disaster.

I find that if I eat early on DDs, I get hungry sooner. So the longer I can go on cups of tea, the easier the DD. However everyone's different so you have to find what works for you. That's really what's most difficult about the first few weeks on JUDDD.

Have you looked at the DD threads? They'll give you some practical ideas that are working for people.

Thanks everyone for the input

I see what you mean about "empty carbs" ....although filling, they might promote more hunger. I have a rather high DD amount because I work out 3x a week... It is around 700 a day. I weigh 247 right now. So maybe I could incorporate healthy protein/veggies over the filling popcorn. I am sure that is MUCH healthier!! DUH.

Oh GOD Ramen noodles!!! If my weight was no issue I would LIVE on those!

I personally go for eggs (hardboiled or scrambled), chicken or turkey meat, baby carrots, brown rice, and coffee on my DD. My main "hint" is to put off eating a meal until the tummy is growling then I have 200 cals, usually holds me for 3 hours. I do allot a bunch more cals than most on my DD (700) though.

Oh geeze - this is me too! I thought I had celery in the fridge at work and it turns out it had turned. So I thought - gee, these carrots are only 35 cals/serving! Luckily there weren't many left. Not a good idea.

It takes trial and error, and knowing how your body responds to nourishment. So far I've not had one DD the same because I am still experimenting. Today was not as great a day. The great thing is tomorrow I can eat and try again on Wednesday!

If you suspect you'll want volume, aim for low calorie dense foods - broccoli, celery, cauliflower, pickles, lunch meat, eggs, etc. I love, love, love me some broth too, on DDs!!!

I also eat mainly protein on down days. I've found it works best for me to keep the hunger away.

Hope the first DD went well!! Lately I've been having a protein drink, full fat yogurt/berries and a can of soup on DD spread throughout the day. So, fairly protein heavy for the amount of cals. All you can do is try something and adjust until you find what works for you. Good luck!

I had two servings of raw veggies this morning, each totalling around 40 calories. For breakfast I had celery, carrots and cherry tomatoes, and for lunch, broccoli, cucumbers and a couple more cherry tomatoes. I was amazed how it filled up that empty spot in my tummy and took away the growlies. After work tonight I had room for 1 cup of coffee with my beloved HWC, and a cup of Wendy's chili with a T of lite sour cream! I'm calling this a perfect DD.

I like the simplicity of DD! Not much to think about or count when it comes to food. I believe protein helps me feel full on DD as well even though I have a few carbs too. I don't do the typical foods most people do. I'm more of a convenience person.

My first few weeks I was doing 500-600 and would have an Atkins PB Granola bar for brekki 210c, Progresso Soup for lunch 140c & Wendy's Chili 210c or Tuna Salad on a LC Wrap 245c for dinner.

This past week I'm able to make it to LUNCH before eating anything!! By drinking hot tea and then water from 7am-12pm. I'm having the same Progresso Chicken Vegetable Rotini soup 140c per can for lunch and either the Wendy's Chili 210c, Tuna salad w/o wrap 165c or Atkins bar 210c for dinner. This will allow me to lower my DD calories to 500 or LESS!

IT SEEMS SO EASY NOW - I'm a month into JUDDD this Sunday.
