Chris,
I am curious about your UD calories...Are you adjusting for excercise? We weigh about the same, and are around the same age, but I am 4" taller. My UD calories with no exercise are 2014. When I calculate for your stats I get 1990. Am I doing something wrong?

Good question ... I am doing a range between the no exercise calorie number and the light (1-3 days) exercise calorie level, with a small bit of rounding to make the numbers easy (1990 becomes 2000, for example).

The reason I'm trying this (and the three day rotation) is that I went into March super motivated, recalculated my numbers, ate at or below them and increased my exercise, and I had a really slow, stallish month for most of March and most of April. I later found out others have had this same experience with recalculating their calories. So now, trying this ... just seeing if I can increase my rate of loss a bit. I think I'm really at the "moderate exercise" level so I think this range will be ok for me (when I started JUDDD, I was using the light exercise calorie numbers and lost well).

Today is my first MD on a 3 day rotation cycle! I'm hoping I have successful results like some of you had. My fear is that I'll see a bounce up tomorrow and then an even bigger bounce after my UD, but my hope is that this will help control the UUAD monster.

Lia, is that your usual DD number? I plugged your height, weight and age into the calculator and what I got was:

DD: 335
MD: 1005
UD: 1674

But that doesn't take into account exercise or other factors. And if you've been losing on your numbers no reason to change it!

No Deedee that's not my usual DD number, I was guesstimating.
Oh no, those numbers are quite low!! Normally my UD's are 1906 and my DD's are 381.
I'm having problems with my DD's recently, I'm not physically hungry but I want to eat all the time, I believe it's because my diet is mostly refined carbs which make me ravenous, Do you find that low carb is an appetite suppressant?

When I was very low carb, I was hardly ever "appetite" hungry. I would only ever get hungry when it was true hunger in my stomach. It was a fantastic appetite suppressant. I do think carbs make us hungrier, and I've been trying to go "lower" carb myself because of that, but carbs are so much fun! I was thinking of another type of "tweak" where I'm low-carb (under 50grams a day) everyday except one day a week. So one of my UD's would be a cheat day.

You've lost a great deal of weight already though so whatever you're doing must be working.

Don't know about low carb being appetite suppressant -I tried it before JUDDD and put on 5lbs in a week.
However, I do know that refined carbs tend to be appetite stimulants. Like you, I used to feel ravenous most of the time, even though I mostly avoid refined carbs.
The "Mastering Leptin" book helped me a lot and one thing I still do because of it is to always "pin down" carbs with some protein. Hope that's helpful info.

For me, in general carbs tend to stimulate my appetite and low carb tends to suppress it.

So, I went up after my down day? It could just be one of those inexplicable things, but I had set myself up with high hopes for today's weigh in because I had felt like I was doing so well. I know it could be anything and it's too soon to draw any conclusions. I'll do another rotation and see what happens. I actually am really liking the MDs. Except today I'm not feeling this MD as much because I am mad at the scale.

Christina, sounds like you're due for a woosh! Going up after a DD, I think, means it has nothing to do with what you ate or your actual weight. It's just some freak thing that will be gone shortly.

I think I'm enjoying the 3 day rotation, even though yesterday's MD was really hard. It felt decadent to have an UD today, and so far I'm managing to control the UUAD beast, which was my entire goal.

I know what you mean. Sometimes I think if I'd just leave it he h*ll alone it might work and I might finally lose this freaking weight!!!!! I should've went back to grooming dogs instead of working in a restaurant. I went from 204 to 150 in like 4 months, but I was eating 1000 to 1200 a day and was literally working my buns off. I just can't handle the being stinky, wet, soapy and hairy all day. Not to mention seeing a co worker getting her lip sliced through from a dog bite to the face! Enough for me!! So, that being said I'm just going to be like that fish on finding nemo and "just keep swimming!"

Tweaking my tweak a bit this week to do M-W-F DDs and Tue/Thur MDs because I have a food fest weekend ahead of me with multiple parties and waaaaaay tooooo much temptation so I need both Sat and Sun to be UDs.

Really hungry today on my second DD. No wonder I hate low cal dieting. I am thinking Friday might be downright miserable. I am taking my ptero and trying to maintain a 1000 calorie spread to keep the SIRT flowing. Luck to all!!!

Started May 1 and I have done 3 rotations. I'm down 3.8 lbs to date and very happy with that. I'm going to stay on the rotation until the end of the month and hope to get back to 180 which was where I was at the first of March, before my blow out holidays.

I am finding that I'm not really hungry as I was when I was doing the regular UD/DD rotation, not sure why.

I had to make today an UD rather than a MD because plans on Saturday require that it be an UD, so I've only done one rotation of D-M-U, but it felt really...gentle to me, I think that's the word. Like I was easing my body back into eating after a day of not eating, instead of overloading it with calories like I do on a normal UD. Of course many, or most, of my UD's have been UUAD's and that's part of the problem that having a M day seemed to solve. I might just add a M-day every week if it works well.

ahh when I was super successful with JUDDD before christmas. I did 3 DD and then the weekend was always one UD and one MD (depending on events, etc). It was super great!

I have tried low carb for the last couple of months ..and I am higher than ever! Maybe I will try this with you guys! DD tomorrow!

Starting with Monday this week I've done D-M-D-M and tomorrow will be D again for some really low average calories. So far no scale movement.

I was hoping to get a hedge before the weekend that needs to be two UDs but I think it may have backfired on me. I will be very happy to be wrong tomorrow if the sale finally moves but I had lots of salty foods in the last few days (popcorn, pickles) so it is unlikely. Here's hoping I am very, very wrong!

TryingJudd, maybe you need to switch it back up to regular rotations? I wonder if just shaking things up is good sometimes.

Angie, I love the idea of having a weekend with a M day and an U day. I'm thinking of trying that, and seeing if I still lose.

I think my favorite part of that will be not having to think about what to make for lunch 3 days a week during the work week. Plus fun weekends! I hope I can still lose doing that.

Wow, great results! I agree, the MD helps not be as hungry on the UD, but once you get used to it is easier than the DD, so I like it too.

I know how disappointing that can be. If it doesn't wind up doing what you wanted, you at least learned from it and didn't really lose any ground, right? You had that great loss last month, so after your fun weekend you can get back to the regular rotations.

My scale results on the three day rotations so far haven't been noticeably better than two day rotations, although there's a downward trend and I do like the three day rotations. I'm a little frustrated because, while I'm losing a little each month, it seems like nothing I try is getting me out of this slow loss mode I'm in right now. I might make a new post on this for BUDDD help/wisdom.

In order to make mother's day an up day, I am doing today as an up day (instead of medium), Sat down, Sunday up, then either back to the three day or try a new shake-up ... not sure.

Hi all, i've recently re-started JUDDD and am doing Mon, Weds, Fri as DDs, Tues, Thurs, Sat as UDs and Sundays are a MD. For me it just makes weekends so much easier to have an UD and a MD and i like the regular routine of Mon Weds and Fri as DDs.

I also thought that it might help you to know that my friend who lost 70 pounds last year on a VLCD then progressed to JUDDD last August to lose her last 14 pounds has been successful and has been maintaining ever since by doing 3 DDs, 3 UDs and a MD every week. She's still loving JUDDD and says it will be part of her life forever.

Hi everyone! I am officially a fan of three day rotations. For me in my limited experiment they worked at least as well as two day rotations, and I learned to love the MD. I felt better and ate better (healthier) on MD than either DD or UD.

I am guessing that my body is asking for a little break at nearly one year in, and so I'm going to higher DD calories for a bit, probably until the end of the month. I will be following this thread and rooting you on!

Christina, good luck with the maintenance break! You've lost so much and been so dedicated, I'm sure it will only help you. And thank you for sharing your experience with the 3 day rotations.

I decided today to start a new schedule of Saturday-U, Sunday-M, M,W,F-D and T-R-U. Today is my first Sunday mid-day with tomorrow being a down day. I really like this schedule for social reasons, and am hoping it helps me keep calories in check and keep losing. I'm already planning most Saturday's to be UUAD's, but that will be okay if I can keep my weekday UD's very controlled. I'll keep checking in here with my results.

Good luck Christina! DeeDee - I did only mid and down days last week M-Fri and it worked. I think I may repeat that this week and add one UD and one MD for the weekend. SO the week for me will be 3 DDs, 3 MDs and 1 UD. That should keep me in check!

That'll bring your calorie total for the week fairly low, right? Let us know how it works out for you! I'm on my first DD after a MD, and it doesn't feel any more difficult than any other DD.

So, how are things going? I haven't read the rest of the posts yet. I am still majorly stuck. I've tried a mismash of JUDDD/WW and even straight WW. I'm still where I've been since I came back at the first of the year.

Okay, now I'm going back upstream to finish reading the posts here.

Hi Vanilla - After the initial loss it has been slow again but I have been dealing with hormones and a weekend foodfest, etc... I still think the 3 day rotation is the way to go for me. I seem to be shrinking in size while the scale stands still?????

That would be a good sign then!! I think as easily discouraged as I get, I could handle that!

I just finished reading. I saw where some are doing or going to do what worked best for me several years ago. M/W/F (DD), T/T/S (UD) and Sunday a MD. I adored that schedule and it was working!

Gah, I just wish something would work!

I'm so happy you found a rotation that is working for you, though!

I am thinking that over the summer I might adopt a similar schedule as I spend every weekend away but adjust it to make it only one UD

M/W/F (DD)
T/TH/SUN (MD)
SAT (UD)

If I can't lose on that I expect I should just call it hopeless!!
