New to this protocol ...

Hi - several months ago I read the JUDDD book/protocol - never got into it for a variety of (not very-good) reasons. Then about a month ago I read the "FastDiet" book, essentially a 500 calorie day twice a week. My husband and I chose Monday and Thursday. The rest of the time you simply eat as you choose.

We're low-carbers from a low time back, so we seldom deviate - BUT we've discovered that we can splurge and get away with it by eating this way! For example, we shared a pizza and drank beer a few days ago - and NO WEIGHT GAIN! This is fantastic! Here's hoping it continues ...

I've been reading through a lot of the posts - we're not losing, simply maintaining - but it seems to work for many of you. And it's so easy!

I've been low-carbing since 01/01/1994 (weighed >200#) - reached my goal weight in 1995 (125#) - maintained with a few blips (gaining up to 160#) along the way - lost weight on HCG but hated the no-fat! - now up about 10 pounds and looking for a solution!

Hi Bonnie,
Welcome to intermittent fasting! I'm not in maintenance yet but I'm excited to continue on this awesome WOE until I get there, and then keep it up with a modified schedule.
Isn't it great to be able to eat "normally" and maintain?
We're happy you've joined us!

Seeing so many happy maintainers here is exactly what prompted me to excitedly try JUDDD. 5:2 sounds like it's a fabulous fit for you! Welcome and happy UD pizza/beer partaking!

Yup, another JUDDDer through WLM here and maintaining with 5:2. Isn't it wonderful to be able to have the things we used to think we had to deny ourselves for the rest of our lives?

My DH and I have been maintaining extremely well with JUDDD and have found the same thing to be true for us. We're long-time low carbers, but eating this way allows us to splurge quite often without dire consequences. My parents were so impressed, they've started having 2 DDs a week and are maintaining excellent weights. My mom keeps telling me she feels she's eating way too much on UDs, but she's lost a few pounds, so I tell her not to let it bother her unless she starts gaining weight. Works for me!

Wow! I've completed 10 IF days - started at 136.8#, and today weighed 132.2# - a loss of 4.6# - and I wasn't even trying!

During this time period, one of my sons came back (safe and sound, thank God) from Afghanistan - this resulted in a quick visit - eating "correctly" was the not on our minds and we had pizzas, etc.

Then one of my daughters and her new husband came for a weekend - again, some very good pizza and beer, and the following afternoon we drank a pitcher of sangria and ate tapas ... and my husband and I followed that visit with another trip to the brew pub and again ate pizza and drank beer!

Plus I've now started eating a banana every couple of days and carrot sticks (2 favorites that we never touched during our low-carbing years).

The rest of the time we've eaten somewhat low-carb (and pretty much healthfully) - no processed sugar or flour (except for the pizzas ...).

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that this continues! This WOE is so much easier and more pleasant than strict low-carbing! And I won't even turn down losing a few more pounds!
