I don't think I'd like them either, soon. I can work with 100 cals of angel hair pasta.

I was wondering if my scales were off (17 lbs!) but had a DR's appt and their scales verifiedd the loss

Almost every DD has gone like this:

Nothing except water until 1-2 pm. For lunch, egg drop soup packet with one egg white: 120 cals. I found the soup packets at Whole Foods, the packets are 100 cals by themselves. Makes 2 1/2 cups, and I drink it all. Very filling.

Dinner is almost always spaghetti - I did this on HCG every night for dinner and lost nearly 21 lbs in 2 weeks. I use the Tofu Shirataki, for 40 cals for the pkg vs 0 for the non-tofu noodles, but I like the softer feel the tofu gives the noodles, they aren't as rubbery.


So, tofu shirataki noodles: 40 cals, 1/3 C Yves Meatless ground: 60 cals, 1/2 C Hunts crushed tomatoes: 45 cals, a tiny bit of frozen green peppers: 5-10 cals, + a dash of garlic and onion powder and a bit of chicken broth, minimal cals, at the most 5. for a total of: 160cals for a really HUGE plate of food.

Then for dessert before bed- 1 caramel rice cake: 50 cals, 2 TAB FF whipped topping (I sprinkle a little stevia on top of the whipped topping) - freeze it for 1/2 hr and it is an "ice cream sandwich" for 70 cals!

Total for DD's: 350 cals!

I have also occasionally added (when I am real Hungry) Dannon Light and Fit Carb and Sugar Control yogurt: 45 cals, and/or 2 Ballpark Turkey Whie Meat Franks @ 45 cals each for an extra 135 cals. That still is under the 500 cals for the day!

Hoping if I follow this, my wt will continue to melt away - I'll eat like this every DD for such good wt loss, and great BP & BS results!
That is SO awesome!! I love your creative menu. I think I may try some egg drop soup today, I already have the chicken stock. Next time I ho grocery shopping, I'm gonns get the ice cream sandwich ingredients,
Hope to see more and more posts from you!

I'd much rather eat everything and anything I want, but that is diabetic suicide, and am why I am back in the 300's again. -- No,wait, I am now at 287 lbs, so am in the high 200's! Makes a difference.

Hmmm I don't think I could do the tofu or non tofu shirataki either. Never tried! Now you've got me wondering just how much 100 cals worth of angel hair or thin spaghetti actually is! I could totally do that with some grilled chicken or shrimp and tomato sauce!

I recently made a salad dressing recipe I found on pinterest. It called for skim milk which made it higher in calories and carbs. I subbed some almond milk and water. Unfortunatley, I was dipping LAYS chips into it last night... But thought it would be a good DD dressing for salads, pasta...whatever.

1 pkt ranch seasoning
1 80cal cup of dannon oikos greek yogurt
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or more if you'd rather not do water. 1 cup is only 40cals)
1/4 cup water (or less depending on how thick or thin you like it.)

So for the whole container it could be 90 calories!

I used to add the rice shaped ones to my low calorie soup to fill me up. I like those. And I even liked the noodles and they served a purpose but I don't use them anymore.
My new favorite DD meal is potato soup.

That sounds delish. I weigh my pasta and it amounts to enough for a serving (less than I would have eaten when I wasn't measuring by far tho). I like to do angel hair pasta, spray some butter on the noodles, add a pkg of cooked spinach and 2 T of parm. Very filling. I think it's like 160 cals for the whole meal.

Mine change depending on the season.

Summer - plate home grown tomatoes with a little cottage cheese
Depending on the size of tomato, I can usually have a plate full for 200c

1/2 cup Cottage cheese and strawberries 130c

Winter - Progresso soups , although the GF ones are typically 280 for the can, still good and filling.

Homemade broccoli soup -200c huge bowl

Anytime:
Baked potato with mushrooms/spray butter/sour cream - 155c

Stir fry - cauli rice, mushrooms, snap peas, zucc 75c with protein 200-215c

Another stir fry - can of chick peas, mushrooms, brocc, snap peas 435c total (DH and I split it)

Cold salad - chick peas, peppers, snap peas, feta , light dressing 700c (dh and I split it)

any lettuce salad with protein, 1 T cheese, tomato and salsa 190c

Mine's not a meal, really. It's my most favorite of favorites - YoCheese Pudding!

I strain full fat Dannon plain yogurt and I admit, I only count half the calories due to the numerous opinions here and other places. It makes sense to me, so that's what I do. My concoction, for a DD, is this:

1 c. strained full fat Dannon plain yogurt
4 squirts Reddi-wip
few sprinkle shakes of SF jello, dry (I love lime)
sweetener of choice to taste

I put it in the freezer for a bit and once you get the timing down, it can taste like a slice of Key Lime Pie or lime frozen yogurt.

I count this as 110 calories. Even though I'm trying to wean down to liquids only on a DD, if I gotta have something, this is it.

I'm drooling!!! I am going to have to do this! I tried linda sue's jello whip and actually liked it, but it uses cream cheese...not so doable on DD so I am going to have to try this! LOVE some key lime pie!

So all the reading about noodles made me crave them and then i remembered I had two packs of miracle noodles left! SO i DRAINED them beyond well and threw them in a fire hot skillet w/ about a 1/2 cup of brocolli slaw, a dash of soy sauce (MUST place an order on here soon for coconut aminos ) and about a 1/3 of a cup o miso packet. DEELISH! Totally satisfying and less than 74 calories! IF i still need dinner later I will make a salad and some gardinera (addicted to this lately!) but I think I will be good to go with a cup of tea later!

Any thoughts on not getting in all of the DD calories? Funny, I thought i would have trouble getting in my UD cals yeah not so much! FULL, but i got 'em! Now I'm thinking on my first down day I will be under by about 100 cals! I get 2443/484 each day!

Pibble-- no worries on DD calories usually... JUDDD is based on intermittent fasting, so theoretically, you could not eat entirely on a DD and be fine. The 20% and other %'s are for people to feel more comfortable, and not just totally freak out about not eating on DDs

That said-- some people do better on lower than their calculated number on a DD, but some people lose weight just fine, or better, on a slightly higher number.

So, truly, YMMV. I'm actually going about 100 less on my DD (and anywhere from 200-0 less on my UD) and I'm doing ok. But they're there if I need them, so I'm not freaking out either way, ya know?

I'm also making a point of eating something pretty delicious on my DD when I do eat, and getting lots of fluids... so I don't feel I'm missing anything, usually.

Anyway, if you do less now and then, it certainly won't hurt. And if you go a bit over, it won't hurt.

It's like JUDDD is made of Nerf.

In the refrigerated section of the grocery store a well known gelatin manufacturer (not sure I can name names) has two really fabulous options - key lime pie and lemon meringue pie - both with toppings. The lemon is 80 cals. I think the key lime is similar and both are to die for amazing. Portion controlled and portable cups. Just the thing to cap off an UD but could fit into a DD too if you plan. I had one last night for desert - YUM!! I don't find them in all stores but some carry them.

You could use some low sugar jam, Capella Drops, or a few squirts of SF DaVinci syrups.

I bought some "better than boullion" tonight, from a suggestion on the DD grocery thread. Plan on having that tomorrow. There's some raw broccoli and carrots at work, so I might bring my boullion and make a soup with 2 T of cheddar cheese and a T of cream (not heavy cream, 15 cals). Yum.

I love making cold spring rolls!

For around 80 cals per roll - the bulk of the calories come from the wrap but you can stuff them!

1 rice paper spring roll wrap
a huge handful of chopped lettuce (add spinach, romaine, etc..)
a chopped green onion
2-3 baby carrots, chopped into matchsticks
a few mint leaves!
and for protein, you can add in a couple small shrimps, halved. (cook them first, lol!)
or 1-2 strips of Gardein "chickn" protein (the teriyaki kind with no sauce, thawed)
or 1-2 strips of actual chicken or turkey (the thickness of your pinky finger, and the length depends on how long you make the roll)

Just roll up and dip in some low cal/sodium soy sauce with grated or powdered ginger OR you can have an UD dip of a little chunky PB and some plum sauce with 2 T water and heated on low heat on the stove, top with chopped peanuts!

I've actually eaten a couple of these as a meal on a DD with a salad on the side. It's really filling and fresh & tasty. I bet they would be amazing in the summertime!

My go to meal is usually shrimp cocktail, but I also love my 150 cal turkey burger cooked with Montreal Steak Seasoning and 0 cal Worcestershire sauce, with a side of grilled onions! I've been known to put it on a rice cake semi soaked with Worcestershire sauce, and some crispy lettuce such as iceberg.

You can buy "pure lemon" made with splenda at any grocery store. It's in a box with individual packets...probably would be as good as lime.

That's a fantastic idea!! I would still want a couple chopped ones for texture but that is a perfect use for PB2 I think!
