That was supposed to read full fat salad dressing. Apparently I have ice cream on the brain...

It seems as though you're struggling pretty consistently with your UD cals, you might want to take a look at the UD threads to see what people are eating. You're not going to have a good & low DD without feeding yourself well on the preceding UD. And if you're not getting the swing between the 2, then you're not JUDDDing.
I totally agree

Thank you for responding! My problem that I don't like to eat lunch, which in turn, makes my UD cals low. I'm hungry, usually, for lunch but it looks like I'm gonna have to suck it up and just eat lunch so I can make these UD work for this program.

Yup! You're welcome. We love JUDDD so much we're all quite willing to help others make it work for them!
Alternatively, if you're not into lunch, you can look into some of the other options mentioned above to up your calories throughout the day. Cheese sticks are 180 calories each. 2 of those and you'd hit your target! If you're into smoothies or shakes, add a TBS of peanut butter or coconut oil and - BAM - you're there!!
You'll get it sorted, I promise. Truth be told, I think many of us are jealous of your problem...even at my current set point, I'm still sometime wanting more at the end of an UD.

Ooops I meant I'm not hungry for lunch. Jeez. Can't seem to type today
Anyhow,thanks for the suggestions. I'll definitely look into my options and see how to work them into my plan on UDs. Thursday is my 2nd week into the plan and I definitely am trying to be patient (and excited) to see when this works with a big whoosh!

No problem with just 53. I mean, calorie counts are at best an estimate anyway. You don't want to go over every UD or course, but that small amount won't hurt anything.

Not silly at all! It's vitally important to us each day, isn't it? Sometimes it feels like my whole life is centered around losing.

There are lots of bounces with JUDDD, it is all about the long term trend. You will do fine. I am sure.

and I hope that you and JUDDD find that you suit each other. Are you starting off the 2 induction weeks with 500kcals or so on your DDs and then moving to JUDDD calculator numbers after you've settled into you DD UD rotations?

Just to agree with Cindy, bounces are part of JUDDD which is why Johnson suggested only weighing after DDs.

No need to worry about the occasional 53 calories!

Did you go to the juddd calculator and get your UD/DD calories? A bounce up after an UD is not unusual. In fact bounces after any type of day are not unusual.
!

The daily bounce doesn't rock my world (anymore)
Check this out^^^^^^

Happy to report that just one DD after my mishaps sunday and monday I was back down to my weight from before the mishaps (I bounced up 3).

Had a successful UD today and was able to get all my calories in!

Mrsandi I have the same problem (getting in all the calories). I think part of it has to do with being fearful of them but I usually plan my days ahead of time. Sometimes I leave one meal open for spontaneity other times I dont. But I do find I get caught up in the planning aspect and it ends up making it more difficult trying to get in all my cals.

So I tried just planning the biggies. Meals and maybe a snack ahead of time and I find that I can naturally during the day find places to fill in those extra calories I need. Last week I was keeping myself up at night practically trying to figure out what I would eat in order to get enough calories the next day. Who would have thought you'd have that problem on a "diet"! I think of this as a lifestyle more than a diet though!

! Yes, the bounces are normal. You'll get used to it, but it took me awhile to come to terms with it. After doing LC, where normally it either stays the same or goes down, it's an adjustment! Good luck!

Huzzah for both

I've recently introduced MCT oil in my morning coffee and supplement with potato starch as a way of making my UD calories. My favourite way to use up my calories is to eat a cheeseboard after dinner. However, that's a little too tempting.

Good luck with your upcoming rotations.

I've found I'm often up even after a DD, but it always comes down again.

Nice to know someone else is sharing the same troubles! Eating that much food seems wrong! LOL. I have to get out of that mindset and just enjoy my up days!

Hi everybody!!
Had my first day today, which was a DD and came in at 510 calories I know that I will want to decrease my cals after the 2 weeks is up I am so pumped that this WOE is an option for me, and when I did my 2 weeks in March, it was effortless weight loss...not sure why I fell off the wagon, but I did...and now I'm back!! We can do this !! My range is 1651/331 but I will do 500 cals DDs for the first week or two anyways, unless I feel really strong ...

Hi! I started JUDDDing on 5/28, so it's been two weeks. I love it. When I started, I was dealing w a spike in weight due to a couple days away from my routine and my kitchen with camping and parties. TOM was also giving me a hard time.
Well, I was up 6 lbs. It is now gone. Meanwhile, some of my UDs were quite indulgent. I feel like I am able to go out socially and not have some scare at the scale that I have to go through hellish correction days to get back down.
I am doing the every other day, but will prob switch to 5:2 for maintenance. If I look into my crystal ball, I bet I get close to my goal around the time I go on vacation. I'll take off for those 10 days. So I'll need the 4:3 when I get back. It will be a while before I am 5:2.
I have been reading thru the JUDDD pages. I have found this site to be very helpful. Thank you!
