WOE: Atkins now doing JUDDD and lowcarb
Start Date: April28,2013JUDDD start June 16' 2013
Hi everybody,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I love reading every ones post on a lot of the Juddd Threads. I tried to read as much as I could for the last 2 days. I did my first day yesterday and did great. I was to total out at 322 and made it at 325 so I figure that was pretty go. No hungers, or other complaints.

Don't know what I want to eat for up day yet? I am limited to what I have in the house
as I am house bound until I go to Cincinnati to see the doctor Wed. Hey that will be an up day great then I can get something I have not had in a long time due to low carb eating this past year. I have that to look forward to but I know don't over due it. HEHE!

Right now a scone sounds wonderful for breakfast. I might have to bake some. If I do I will have to hide them in the bottom of the big freezer so I don't see them tomorrow. I could eat scones every day of the week if my body would let me.

Thank you slowsure for the advise. Did I understand your address right? Is it London England? If so WOW I have always wanted to visit there. I take it that you are doing great on this woe. I also see I should not look at the scales for awhile. I am bad about checking everyday so I won't do that. I will just keep my eye on the calories instead. Have a great day every one. Here goes day 2. Judy

Hi Windygap, yes, there are a lot of us from the UK here on the JUDDD forum.

I love your idea of a scone or two on an UD. Have fun baking.

I hope your Dr's visit goes well.

Thank you SlowSure and Carly! Glad to hear some people have slow losses in the beginning. Of course I keep zeroing on stories of people losing right away.

Yes, I can't think of any other WOE that would be flexible enough to accommodate social and sports commitments/schedules the way that JUDDD does.

Btw, I've been sleeping really well! Do people find that with JUDDD? Or is it just the reduced caffeine (2 cups to 1)?

I think that is so neat to hear from so far away Kissa. I have chocolate chip scones cooling as we speak. They are only 150 cal because they are little for this recipe. So since it is up day I made one double in size and counted it as 300. Well worth it after a down day. I think I am going to like this a lot if I can have scones, popcorn, peanutbutter, a roll or biscuit, or a slice of pie every once in a while. Who wouldn't like to diet only every other day.

I dearly love reading or seeing anything from England, Ireland, and Scotland. I had relatives come from all of them so that is why I love them. Also I watched Prince Charles grow up in the news because he is around the same age as me so It always
caught my intrest. Loved the last wedding and new baby comeing. Have a great day. Judy

Thanks Carly & Slowsure, I only ended up at 850 cals. for my MD because we took my DH out for fathers day and I had a little extra at dinner but didn't go crazy. Don't think I'll do that very often for now though since it would probably set me back more than I want at this point.

Judy!! I want one of those scones!! Yum!

I have never been able to do a MD. Well, I have done some DDs that ended up being close to a MD, lol. Seems like after a DD, I just can't do the deprivation two days in a row. I tried to again today, and was unable. I'm going to attempt it again Wed., and if not, it's going to be another 2 UDs in a row this week.

Wow, I am loving this "one day diet". It's perfect for me: THAT's IT! I am TOO FAT! I am DIETING starting NOW.

It works perfectly, just rinse and repeat!

Yes, this is one of the main selling points of Juddd! It also makes it very sustainable.

I Love it so far. ON day 3 and doing fine. Hope you all have a great day. Kissa I hovered over the scone so none of the aroma could get in the computer. I did not want to tempt you in any way. HEHE! Truthfully they turned out great. They are hid in the freezer right now. Hope you have a great up day today!

I'm loving it so far too. When I would read of people finding the UDs harder than the DDs, I didn't understand. But now I kinda do! Not having to make any decisions on DDs is almost easier for me - I've been doing coffee w/half&half and 2 shakes and that's it. Today is an UD and it's 6pm and I've only eaten 1000 of my 2000 and wondering what I'm going to do!

Pants feeling oh so slightly better today. I'm cool with a slow loss, I just hope it happens. How I *wouldn't* lose anything eating just 8000 calories for the week, I don't know. I have to, right?

Hey Suzy. Maybe you should eat at the calorie level for "little to no exercise"? It might be easier for you to get all your calories in, and it might result in faster weight loss. Just a thought.

It's very tempting! The thing is, I do actually get more than "light" exercise and I'm trying to train my body to burn it! Today is on the heavy side, but I walked 6.25 miles and climbed 35 floors (and haven't even started the cleaning I planned on today). But if I find my loss is less than a pound a week, I'll have to adjust down. I have the most stubbornest body

I'll be interested to see how it works for you. I get 1800, but usually do around 2000 also.

How many calories on your DD? And do you mind if I ask how much per week have you been losing? I know no two people are alike, but yeah, it's interesting to see what happens to others. And I totally obsess over this stuff

Hi everyone - just poking my head in here to say hello. I was posting over in the Atkins forum but after doing a few days of solid induction-only with lots of fat and protein, I felt so disgusting and nauseus that I decided not to continue. I do not think that low-carb is the way for me, plain and simple. I think my body responds and needs moderate carbs.

Anyway, like I said, I'm popping in to say hello My name is Candice. I'm in my 20s and weigh about 170 lbs. I'm 5'5. Atkins drop-out (LOL). I work full-time and the one thing I do a great job at is exercising. I have truly developed a love for moving my body over the last year and I have a great workout schedule that I follow using all kinds of DVDs... I do mostly workouts from The FIRM but have started to include some very low-level HiiT/Tabata workouts along with barre/fusion/yoga/pilates. I think that might be why I didn't do so hot on such a low-carb plan. Who knows? All I know is I feel like my body wants healthy carbs and what attracted me to JUDDD was that it encourages good food choices, allows for real life to happen, and offers other health benefits that are extremely important to me, in addition to weight loss.

I just finished reading The Alternate Day Diet by Dr. Johnson and another thing that really struck a chord with me was how realistic and honest he seemed to be in his writing. He didn't promise me 15 lbs the first two weeks and boundless energy and he didn't try to convince me that I would never stumble or look back. To me, that was really cool. He kind of broke it down like "hey, you might have a hard time on a DD, and that's ok. it happens. just deal with it and look forward to your UD tomorrow."

One thing I've struggled a lot with in the past when trying to change my WOE is I start with something that promises huge success (fat loss) but requires huge sacrifices. I fail. I quit. I don't like it. I give up within 4 days. I want to JUDDD and I want to do it right but I think for my body and myself (mainly pscyhologically speaking) I might need to start higher than 500 cals a day. Today I decided to just see what it would feel like to eat 1000 cals. It felt great. I got a tad hungry but then I waited until it was time to eat, and I ate, and it was great! I have tracked my calories and I know that when I am not following any specific eating plan and am just eating whatever I want, I usually eat about 2700 calories a day. I stay steady at my current weight which is about 168-170 lbs when I eat this much. The problem is, I know it's not healthy, I know I could look better, and I know it really slows down some of my workouts to be this heavy. Plus, sometimes I make poor food choices (cupcakes, anyone?) and I want to be able to do the JUDDD diet and know, especially on DDs, that I'm eating very nutrient-rich foods.

So to summarize, I want to enjoy the NSVs of JUDDD - like better mood, cognition, and sleep. More alertness (which I know I will experience because I dabbled in full out 24-hr IFs before and I felt physically AWESOME when I didnt have a hunger pang). I want my body to be able to move easier so I can push myself harder with my workouts. I also want to live a long life. I want to look healthy and thin on the outside but even more, I want to FEEL extremely healthy on the inside. I plan/hope/want to live to be at least 100 years old, and I want to be a healthy, walking, moving 100 year old lady!

Tomorrow I am going to do an "UD" and then work my way down to 500-600 calories on my DDs over the next few DDs (so, next DD be about 800, the following DD around 700, the next maybe drop it down to 500-600) and kind of ease my way into it. I think for me, it will be important to feel like I'm succeeding my sticking ot my new plan, from a psychological standpoint. Hope that makes sense. You guys all seem so knowledgeable and I'm really excited to begin what I think can honestly be a WOE for life.

So, it's not linear, it didn't slow down or speed up when I shifted to 3DD, 3UD, 1MD.
Slow, I feel as though I was just reading my own personal journal. For those who think JUDDDing means instantaneous weight loss I don't want you to get your hopes up. I've always hated when people say "you didn't put the weight on overnight so it won't come off overnight" as if I'm an idiot, but it's absolutely true. JUDDD can definitely work for you If you follow the WOE and I'm so grateful that I took the time to listen to Carly and her DW.

After my initial induction loss of 6lbs I started losing about 2 pounds a week then I felt stalled. Much of that was from a medical issue and the stress of it. Then I noticed that my clothes were fitting better. For about a month I was losing inches and I had to teach myself to embrace that.

So please don't get discouraged if you're not losing as much as you'd like, as quickly as you'd like because just from this community you can see that as you get closer to your goal that victory means everything.

Good luck to all the newbies and welcome.

Great post Lisa. You really crystallized it right there.

Candiceena! This really is truly a flexible WOE and I think you'll love it. How great that you love to exercise. I used to love the FIRM workouts. My favorite was the original, which I'm sure was made before you were born! Good luck with JUDDD, and post often.

LoCarb - yes, the original FIRM was made before I was born! But I am a total die-hard original FIRM workout lover, from the Benson-era. I think those workouts are so awesome. I'm in the process of building an original FIRM collection with DVDs as they slowly get released onto DVD.

Thanks for the introduction Very excited to check in with you guys and gals. Hopefully I can lean on you guys when I have a tough time! I am most concerned about evenings when I am home w/ my boyfriend - he likes to eat a big dinner and it can be very tempting!

Just flying by to say hello to all the lovely newbies. Your great attitudes will work well for you!

I've lost slowly but steadily on JUDDD, averaging 0.5lbs per week at most but it's been very easy and painless. (Bear in mind that I'm 60 and a dedicated couch potato.)

JUDDD has easily accommodated innumerable Life events, both the stressful and the joyous. I'm eating real food and enjoying a social life. So I'm definitely very happy with this WOE.

I hope you will also have a happy and successful JUDDD journey.

Caniceena!!! You sound well informed and ready to do JUDDD the right way. I think it's wise to titrate down to the level you feel comfortable with on DDs. It is a big adjustment and the way you've approached it may be a very good way to get where you need to be with time. I think you will enjoy JUDDD very much and have lots of success! I look forward to hearing more from you.

I have lost an average of about 3 lbs a month, going back to September, when I first started dieting with LC. I'm at 29 lbs down in 9 months, so a little more than 3, but a little less than a lb a week. I am working on getting my DDs lower (to improve the rate of loss), but usually do 370-600. I would like to get to lower than 300 consistently, especially since my UDs are not always at 1800.

Hi fellow JUDDD and wonderful experienced JUDDD advice givers!!! I just started yesterday with a DD and was quite happy with whatever whooshed off of me during the night. And mostly I was happy that I slept like a log! I'm 55 and often have trouble STAYING asleep through the night. That NSV alone will make DDs worthwhile! (someone remind me of that when I'm struggling please!! ) I did a mono-down day with potatoes. I was reading the potato hack thread the other day and potatoes just sounded so comforting. I wasn't even sure I would DO a DD yesterday but I wanted to do a potato day. As I moved through the day it was just feeling like a DD was totally possible (I ended up a little high at 630 calories). I seem to have a deathly fear of being hungry so this was a huge success. I was a little hungry at various times during the day but nothing unmanageable. And I definitely kept thinking about all the food I can eat today.

I'm really excited to get to know everyone - this is such an awesomely supportive group. I also find it interesting that it's an international group!

How exactly do you make this?

And lastly, our best losers post on this site a lot!
This is an AWESOME list! I printed that on a hot pink 3X5 card and will keep it visible. I might even make extra copies to put in my purse, truck, etc.

NEVER would I have thought I could get by with so little to eat without feeling starved or light-headed. Beyound thrilled so far--
I felt really encouraged when I read this!!

Just wanted to say thanks for asking this question! I have really appreciated reading all the answers.

This is a really good point. Thank you!

AMEN. That is so true for me as well. Sugar is my crack.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! And thank you so much for this encouraging post. I also want to express appreciation for the long time JUDDDers who continue to post and support the . That attracted me to JUDDD even moreso than the science if I'm to be totally honest.

There's something about us that just assumes our bodies are defective and betraying us. I know there are people who do have more metabolic difficulties, but I really do believe it's a small majority.
I'm so glad you shared this. I experience that exact same type of thinking. "This will never work for me..." "My body must be broken..." etc. etc. It's so good to know I'm NOT alone and that successful JUDDDers have also had those very same thoughts. The sabbotoging thinking must just be my lower brain demanding a cookie!

Well, I can start a list of diets you CANNOT lose weight on by only dieting half the time:

Atkins
Weight Watchers
Nutritional Ketosis
and..and..and..



Since I only seem to be able to diet about half the time, I better try JUDDD!

I slept like a BABY last night! I wasn't sure if it was the DD in general or the potatoes. Whatever it is, I'll take it!

JUDDD can definitely work for you If you follow the WOE and I'm so grateful that I took the time to listen to Carly and her DW.

After my initial induction loss of 6lbs I started losing about 2 pounds a week then I felt stalled. Much of that was from a medical issue and the stress of it. Then I noticed that my clothes were fitting better. For about a month I was losing inches and I had to teach myself to embrace that.

So please don't get discouraged if you're not losing as much as you'd like, as quickly as you'd like because just from this community you can see that as you get closer to your goal that victory means everything.

Good luck to all the newbies and welcome.
I'm very grateful to read this today. I need to come back and read these words when I lose perspective.

I'm so encouraged to read this as I am close to your age and am also getting ready to face a huge schedule change that will leave me with little time for exercise. I want to mentally prepare for "slow and steady" and remember the long view. I'm so glad to know this has worked for you.

I used the JUDDD calculator to figure my calories. Using the "no exercise" option, my DD number should range from 361-632 (20% - 35%) and my UD number should be 1806. I'm going to target 500 for DDs over the next too weeks. But like yesterday that did go to 630, I won't freak out over that. Will re-assess on 7/2.

Thanks to all for being here and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Beth
