WOE: LC my way
Start Date: ongoing lc lifestyle
HOORAY! a 2.5 lb. drop. of course that is the bloat from being a bit bad before but I will take anything off the scale and anything that keeps me heading down that scale


my 500 calorie down day turned into 700. at night I jumped on an atkins bar. Oh yea. I got that snack attack feeling. I was lucky I controlled myself.

I see I need to eat later in the day. I need some very low cal. snacks to jump on if needed.


today is UP day. Now I am scared to eat LOL I want it all. I don't want anything to change that 2.5 down So will be careful, choose good foods and enjoy the day but won't go overboard.

JUDDD should be an interesting journey.



But my question is, what does everyone eat as your go to very low cal. snack if needed to keep the down day in control?

I like cucumbers in SF rice vinegar with pink himalayan salt or celery with Walden farms dressing as dip. I also like a mug of broth.

I find that a cup of chicken broth made with a cube helps me in that category for 5 calories. But then I also limit snacks as I follow mastering Leptin and it is three meals per day. No snacks.

thanks. the mug of something hot sounds nice. hot seems comforting to me. great idea. I also have 25 cal. Swiss Miss if needed. forgot about it in the cabinet.

keep the cals. low and it should all work out for me


I wish I could quit snacks. I just always did it and would be a monster hard habit to break. I rely on them sometimes to control me without going overboard.

Adill--did you find it hard to give up snacks? I don't know if I can go there yet lol

I think when you get into the swing of things with JUDDD, you will naturally give up the snacks or cut way back. I was never a big snacker anyway, but DDs are just so much easier if you don't have to think about when or what to eat next.

Broth, your favorite teas, SF popsicles, raw veggies like celery, peppers, cauliflower are all great choices to help you get through the day. Sometimes just doing something else..focusing on something not food related...will make a big difference and the hunger will just pass away without having anything to eat.

Hi Trigger. I'm new at this, too. I also had my first DD yesterday (700 calories, too!) and lost 2.2#. I'm sure it's mostly water weight. I'm thinking the same as you - I don't want it back! I can see where this DD/UD thing could be mentally tricky. Especially after doing HCG awhile back and seeing drops everyday. But, I will never do HCG again. VLCDs EVERY.SINGLE.DAY with such a limited menu were just too much.

As for snacks, I find raw veggies or berries are really the best for me. Yesterday, a nice hot mid-morning coffee was very helpful with taming the morning grumblies.

Here's to a great May!!! Let's do this!

Welcome Missy and Trigger.
Everyone's different and you have to experiment a bit. Carby snacks seem to be potentially dangerous on DDs though.
What helps me is to have a hot drink if I feel snacky during the day. I have some nice herby teas I use as treats on DDs. English Breakfast tea also helps.
I'm a late eater so, on DDs I try not to eat till dinner time, then leave myself a snack for later.
There's often a hungry patch around 4pm but it goes away if I ignore it and then I'm often not hungry again till after 8pm.
Pre-JUDDD I'd never have believed it possible for me to do that!!

It helps to be busy on DDs - stops you thinking about what you want to eat!
I also find it's helpful to use the daily menu planners on this forum.

New to this also. I started out at 237 on my first MD, was up to 239.5 on my first DD, down 2.5 yesterday, my first UD, and stayed the same today after my UD. Anxious to see the scale tomorrow after a DD today! Would love to get firmly into the 220's by the end of May - hopefully 225.

WOE: Judd
Start Date: 4-14-13
I am still considering myself a newbie I am on my 3rd week of Judd. The past couple DD have been hard/er. Once I get past "it" though, I think it's a mental hunger and not so much physical. Even when I am physically hungry, I can get over it. The mental is the hardest!

I think my hardest time of day is between 3pm-7pm. I have been trying to just eat lunch (coffee only in the am) and then eat dinner as late as possible, but I don't think that's working for me. I need to eat around 5-6pm. Yesterday I ate early (around 6pm) and was fine the rest of the night. If I fight it too long, I get really irritable and HUNGRY. I am just glad I am figuring this out. Anything to make DD easier. I had a couple easy ones, and want them all to be that way.

Anyways to answer the question about feeling snacky, I just drink water or herbal tea. I try to ignore that, and only feed true hunger (within my calories, of course). I try to stick to low cal foods all day, so that I can make the most of my day, like 0% Greek yogurt, low calorie protein shakes (110 cals each), egg whites, vegetables (lettuce, cukes, etc) and low-cal dressing. Also I sometimes like oatmeal on DD for dinner.

We are twins almost! berries as a snack is a great idea!! love them, they don't trigger me for more and they would fit in great for me.

congrats on that loss. water weight etc., who cares!! it is gonzo off the old scale

Im new here to JUDDD too. Yesterday was my first DD and I was discouraged initially to see a 2 pound gain after my UD. Thankfully, I lost it by this morning. (2.2 loss) I need to practice weighting only 1 time/week.
So used to HCG and weighing myself daily. Today is my 2nd UD and so not used to eating so much food. (did 500 calories on HCG)
Nice to meet everyone and good luck everyone!!

I second everyone's recommendation of chicken broth. A mug can really help you get through the hungries. I like to have some celery (4 oz is 16 cals) with salt...the crunch really satisfies...a dill pickle is nice too sometimes. My DD is almost all snacks...I put together a few snacks and make that the first part of my day, then I will have a small meal at night. Works great most of the time.

Everyone!

I started on Saturday 4/27 with my first DD and saw a 2lbs drop.
I've not ventured back on the scales yet - want to try leave weigh-ins to every other Friday on the morning of a UD.

Loving the freedom on my UD's and apart from a bit of a waiver with 890c. on Monday my DD's are getting easier.

Loving the advice from everyone and the inspiration from some of you who've been here for the long haul and hit your targets xx

My DH eats one of the following:
  • cucumber pickles
  • an oat cracker with a tolerable amount of mustard or wasabi
  • glucomannan pudding.

If I were stuck, aside from adding my voice to the chicken/vegetable broth suggestion, I think I'd have Shirataki noodles with some hot sauce - that would be about 15kcals.

Good morning? How is everyone today?

I am down .2# after an UD yesterday. Mind boggling! LOL.

DH and I watched Dr. Mosley's PBS documentary on fasting last night. Very interesting and I think it piqued DH's curiosity. I had not told him about doing this, but now he knows and wanted to know this morning if I was going to start fasting. Told him I already had. Hehe.... The health benefits cited by Dr. Mosley were very intriguing.

Has anyone here done or contemplated doing the 5/2 plan?

Thanks for the tips from the seasoned veterans. I really appreciate that. One thing that has always impressed me about the JUDDD board is how helpful and friendly everyone is. That's a true testament to the program!

Okay...DD2....here we go. Good luck to all of us today!!

My JUDDD journey so far:

Sunday - first day adding in carbs - MD - 237
Monday - 239.5 - DD
Tuesday - 237 - UD
Wednesday - 237 - DD
Thursday - 235.5 - UD

Very happy with the results so far - experienced a minor gain from adding in carbs and now on my way back down. Hopefully will soon pass my lowest LC weight and start a downward trend after bouncing around the same 2-3 lbs for the past 4 weeks on LC.

Many of the JBs are using 5:2 for maintenance & weight loss. That crew usually has a weekly thread they start up in the forum, you should be able to find past ones with a search or paging through the first few screens of threads.

I do 5:2 for maintenance, and eat higher than the JUDDD recommended calories for my UDs and less than 500 for my DDs. I was still losing a bit with my numbers from JUDDD but with only 2 DDs per week, even at goal, so I increased UDs.

I got carried away on UP day yesterday, didn't hit my total cal. of 1900, but ate some junkier stuff.

I gained nothing. Didn't lose anything. I stayed the same which to me is perfect anyway!! So happy right now. I would have lost maybe .5 if I didn't have a small snack attack late a night.

my thinking was---ut oh---I am on a down day tomorrow, I best eat now tonight.

whew. I gotta change that thinking and fast



Down day #2 for me also. here we go. foods planned. tons of liquid to help.

away I go

No it wasn't hard to give up snacks. Three meals a day for weeks on end and it became a habit. If I "think" I want something between meals I drink water or tea or coffee. If I think I am starving a cup of broth takes care of the problem and at 5 calories it isn't much of a snack. Rarely need the between meal broth though.

ahh, broth as the snack. takes away the need for actually eating food. breaks that habit a bit. that is a real good idea.

I will start to find some great drinks I love and broth to start subbing when I feel a snack time coming. Even if I could slowly cut down some of the snacking it would be worth it.

thanks. great info.

I have been doing JUDD-ish. I need to up my up day calories and decrease my down day alcohol! Still, I am doing Ok. I love the Costco Protein shakes for down days. 30gm of protein for 160 calories. I am down several pounds since I started a few weeks ago, with a general downward trend. I read the book over Easter weekend and have been doing a kind of a JUDD since then.
The main problem I have is hat I am training for a 5k (power walk not run) and I try to do my harder workouts on up days but it doesn't always work out that way.
