UD Thursday: Menu and plans
 
Really going to make a concerted effort to eat more today so that I meet my target calorie totals within my leptin reset transition.

B: pollock fish cake and scrambled egg whites (approx. 200 kcals)
L: should be oxtail soup with some HM dried tomatoes and some tuna (approx. 320 kcals)
D: lamb and vegetable curries with some rice (approx. 650 kcals)

Total is approx. 1170 so I could do with 200 kcals that don't come from fat as I need to add it back into my diet very slowly.

Agreed! I find the UDs more challenging than the DD, probably because it takes a lot more effort to eat than not!

So far, all I know is this:

B: Coffee, 1 tbsp half and half, small Fuji apple (80 calories) Not feeling particularly hungry right now.
L: 1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese, 2 pickle halves (100 calories)
D: Jimmy John's turkey sandwich (no mayo, add vinaigrette), BBQ chips, and half a pickle (719)
S: Sunflower seeds, almonds, and I think I am having beer when I go play my weekly trivia game.

I am going to need a lot more calories than what I have planned so far. Anyone have ideas of yummy things I could fit into my day? I am at work right now, so options are limited until I get home.

zipp2play 04-04-2013 06:42 AM

OH I have no problems eating my UP DAY calories, never EVER ! Me LOVES an UP DAY! :cool:

B - 2 boiled eggs, toast (Dyed eggs almost gone) 320c
L - spaghetti bake 450c
S - Reese's PB Egg 170c
D - meat balls and tater tots

I have 960c for dinner and such, I will calculate them later today!

ENJOY ALL! Happy FRIDAY - EVE

Why so little for Breakfast and Lunch? Heck, till Dinner you are eating like a Down Day! Eggs for breakfast, cream in your coffee, full fat greek yogurt? Something substantial for lunch? the JOY of JUDDD is , you only diet every other day. You have your day planned as if you are dieting today. I would focus on Breakfast and Lunch eating more. No reason to FAST on a NON FAST day! Salad with full fat dressing, fruit with PB, Nuts, Beer, WINE (it's my go to for calories), chocolate, chips? The last few were less healthy, so you don't have to go that route, but with JUDDD YOU CAN!

Silverrain 04-04-2013 07:00 AM

Thank you for the suggestions!! I will very likely add more to my lunch today, but didn't know what. They do have a little snack shop in my building that offers sandwiches, soup, etc. For breakfast, however, I was just not hungry today! Not entirely sure why, as my stomach was really wanting food at bedtime last night! I am having some sunflower seeds and almonds dispersed throughout my day, and I will for sure be having beer later today. I drink lighter beer, though, so even having two or three won't break the calorie bank. I have to get out of the mindset of so few calories. Still learning! Thanks again!! :) Your suggestions are very helpful.

Silverrain 04-04-2013 07:01 AM

Oh, and I totally had a PB egg for my last UD. It was awesome! Enjoy yours! :D

sorenkkg 04-04-2013 07:09 AM

I agree, good UDs are super key, since dd's are relatively simple (planning wise...)

That said, I'm working on proving my theory that I shared with steph about being hungrier on an UD when you have breakfast... so that concept of the "eating window" might be a good one for people who are having trouble with the UDs should try out.

B: vitamins, water. I have an apple and a coke zero (still having a headache...) on standby
L: not sure, since I"m still in the workshop and it's catered. But it's nice to know that I can eat "whatever I want" today.
D: I have a ton of meaty leftovers... beef ribs, roast beef, pork ribs... everything but veggies, so need to figure that out.
Dessert: maybe 200-300 cal in milk chocolate :)

Kimberli33 04-04-2013 07:56 AM

B-eggs,bacon, and cheese
L-2 hotdogs w/ sf ketchup and sour cream
D-burger patty, butternut squash,cott cheese
S-sf jello and coffee

hot-in-texas 04-04-2013 08:33 AM

breakfast-2 scrambled eggs with salsa, 1/4 of a canned coke-195
snack-5 almonds, 5 yogurt covered raisins-100
coffee with creamer-70
no idea about the rest of the day!

Me either Zipp!:D I wish I were one of those that had to work at getting their calories in on UD's. lol In fact I would love to help them out with that if it worked that way. ha,ha:D

JMBM 04-04-2013 08:53 AM

Ruh Roe, I'm off to a high start, but boy it was delish!:yummy:

B: Scr Eggs, 5 sl turkey bacon, 2 homemade tortillas w/crm cheese and strawberry jam = 750 ish from what I can figure.:stars:

May have to adjust lunch calories because I'm really liking the looks of dinner.:D

KeirasMom 04-04-2013 09:00 AM

I think it's because the potato hack wiped out my appetite - I'm waiting for it to rebound. However, the high protein breakfast of the transition to the leptin reset also seems to be stamping on my appetite.

I could make myself eat *something* (as long as it had neither fat nor carbs) but although I know I need the calories (because my hands are still freezing cold) it feels wrong (although I know that I need the calorie difference for the JUDDD Magic).

If I weren't on a leptin reset and so sensitive to fat after 28 days without it (pretty much) I could easily eat a PB cookie. Thing is tho', that if I were eating because I ought to, rather than because I fancied it - I could probably go on to eat 4 (approx. 1000 kcals) rather than the 1 that I actually needed to make up the calories. :o

Sirtain 04-04-2013 09:34 AM

So far:
leftover taco meat with cheddar, tomatoes, and guacamole

bratwurst with homemade sauerkraut, primal cheesecake with raspberry jam, coconut macaroon(leftover from the week BEFORE Easter- will they never get all eaten up?)

Tonight I think there will be lambchops with cauliflower. And, of course, the ubiquitous yogurt at some point. :)

Well it's great that you are eating satisfying foods that keep you from being hungry!:clap: I do have a tendency to eat junk which doesn't hold me as long as it should. I was doing potato DD's and they are VERY filling! I just felt like I never could get my calorie counts right on the potatoes.:dunno: Googled it and one site said 66 calories for 1/2 cup of boiled potato, then on the bag of potatoes I purchased it said 110 cal per potato and after peeling and boiling it I mashed out to be a little over a cup of potato. So if i used the cal count from the one site it says 1 cup shouldve been 132 cals while the nutrition guide on my bag of potatoes said 110 so I just was never sure how many calories I was eating.:dunno: That being said I put the potatoes to the side and haven't done the DD potato hack anymore. But I can see how you may not have much of an appetite after doing that.

zipp2play 04-04-2013 09:51 AM

I have read the info on Potato Hack. I have major low blood sugar issues, so potatoes only on DD's would kill me! Interesting to read how you all were doing though

zipp2play 04-04-2013 09:51 AM

I do sometimes have a baked potato for evening DD meal. My sugar is stable by evening.

You know I have never been "officially" diagnosed, however, I wonder if I am? I have fainted twice before due to getting the shakes from it getting low, so I wonder if I could be?:dunno: I remember telling my dr. about it and she said there could be a possibility that I was, but she never ran any test. She just recommended cutting down on the sugars, carbs, and trying to lose some weight and that it should make a difference in blood sugar drops. I was over 200 lbs at that time so I haven't had a whole lot of trouble since losing some of the weight. My dad is diabetic so I probably have the tendencies. He's not over weight at all though.

vickismc 04-04-2013 11:19 AM

B: 4 slices low sodium/sugar free bacon Knowing I can have bacon on my UD gets me through the DD - Fage yogurt/blueberries - Wheatfree nut granola -
coffee with coconut oil = 442 cals

L: ?

D: I'm thinking homemade pizza with non-wheat crust made with coconut/almond/garbanzo flours instead

Mamatomany 04-04-2013 11:25 AM

I just made a bunch of homemade almond joy bars so umm can I just eat those all day long! There is really healthy ingredients, BUT a million calories too. I made a bunch of Easter candy for the kiddos, and I love mounds bars :dunno:

TryingJudd 04-04-2013 11:59 AM

B- light english muffin with 1 HB egg plus another egg white, ICBINB spray, fiber plus brownie (300)
L - saladworks chicken monteray sandwich (400)

Planning some chocolate and maybe an apple in the afternoon (200) and not sure what for dinner but about 900 cals worth for a total of ~1800. Still bloated so doing a lot of lemon water and lemon tea.

What you eat on a DD or UD is your choice. Count the calories and all is good! You might find tomorrow's DD to be tougher, but you may not even notice!

zipp2play 04-04-2013 12:08 PM

Beverly, I have hypoglycemia, I have had it my entire life. Heavy or not, if I don't couple carbs (any carbs) with enough protein (till about 2:00 in the afternoon) I have issues.

My issues must have just been diet related or something. I don't get that way frequently just when it's getting too low. Probably wouldn't hurt to go just get some blood work done just to see how everything looks.

do you know about the cauliflower/egg/cheese crust? it's low carb and surprisingly low calorie too. A member of this forum created it, though the recipe has gone totally viral the last few years...

if you google for your lighter side, I believe you'll find the blog, and then just look up cauliflower crust and you'll find it. OMG so many uses.

You can find it on this thread too, searching the recipes.

Anyhoo-- just in case you wanted something a bit lower carb :)

Soren, I know I have said it before, but I LOVE your new AVI, you are truly beautiful!!!!

tobelowcarber 04-04-2013 04:37 PM

B: lamb burgers, 2 eggs with coconut oil (60 gr protein)
L: 1 TBL coconut oil
D: baked salmon, roasted asparagus with EVOO, lamb burgers, lettuce, cucumber, EVOO

1624 cal/20 gr carbs

sorenkkg 04-04-2013 09:00 PM

:o Mon! :D thank you. I just don't post the 1000000 bad ones ;)

I went a bit off track at dinner tonight-- got home mega late from work (7pm, which as you know, is INSANE for me, given I usually work at home) so I was STARVING.

I ate a variety of leftover meats (literally-- chicken thighs, pork ribs, prime rib beef) without weighing it.

Then I went to town on the mini chocolate easter eggs.

sigh. for sure, I'm at 2300 for the day, maybe 2400.

Will lemon-water it up tomorrow, though I might have to have a group lunch out at work (my boss who is leading the workshop I'm in, as well as the few training team members here, so 4 of us). I think I know where we're going to go, and I can probably get a low cal salad, and have less for dinner.

My last UD where I went over, didn't have too many repercussions, so fingers crossed here!

Happy Friday ya'll!
S. :D

JMBM 04-04-2013 09:13 PM

I'm over too!:p I think I finished at 2100. That's about 400 over for me. :stars:

KeirasMom 04-05-2013 08:50 AM

I was low on calories yesterday, so I finished the evening with some extra wine and thin mint cookies. This diet is soooo hard! ;)
