I'm a newbie. I've been reading a lot; posting very little. I think I'm on my 2nd down day today? Lol I should keep better track! I'm also staying off the scale for the time being as I get down if I don't see a loss (or if I see a gain, no matter how small).

I'm not low carb per se, but try to keep my DD as high protein as possible and try to eat mid-day---- too early and I'm ravenous in the evening, too late leads to free for all binging.

I also take a variety of supplements and want to add in exercise as well.

I'd like to meet other newbie, too!

Hello,

I just started Wednesday, today is my second DD. I am trying to follow the calories in the calculator very closely. I have a LOT to lose and I've never been good at listening to my body, so I am tracking everything!!!

I am looking forward to the health benefits, and while I'd love to lose weight (and hope to) the health benefits is my real reason for starting this. I have no energy, and I get foggy a lot, and I am an emotional eater and am trying to gain control of that.

Just thought i'd pop in and introduce myself.

Meggen

P.S. Anonymousity - I too do better on low carb so I am keeping mine as low as possible while doing this.

Hi Meggen, nice to meet you!

I'm hoping to stick with it this time! I've been trying to lose weight for months now but always end up getting derailed. I hope things go better from now on.

Help please!

I've been doing standard JUDDD since 5/23 and have only lost 1 lb. As it stands today, I've gained that 1 lb back. According to the JUDDD calculator, my DDs are 349 and my UDs are 1744. On DD days, I eat anywhere 350-600 cals. On UD days, I eat anywhere from 1300-1700 cals. I try my best to eat all of my cals on my UDs.
Am I doing something wrong? Or should I not worry?
Thank you!

Remind me what way of eating you were following previously? Also the scale bounces on juddd- it's not a woe were you see daily losses.

I'm looking again at the numbers you gave and that 600 DD and 1300 UD is not ideal. You really want more than a 1000 calorie spread. 400- 1750 would be better.

A 1 pound bounce in a week is nothing- really. I'm suprised that is all you bounced. I think you will be happily suprised if you keep DDs below 400 and eat your full UD number.

MrsAndi! I think you should not worry yet. It has only been 10 days, and we have many people who did not lose at first and then started losing after their bodies adjusted to JUDDD. I agree with Carly that you don't want to go from 600 to 1300 ... the magic is in extra low calories one day, maintenance calories the next, keeping your metabolism high while activating the SIRT gene due to the fasting. I personally believe that for people coming off of every day low calorie plans, getting the up day calories in is particularly important, but the body may take a couple weeks to adjust to it ... and then it will be happy! Also, since you're 10 pounds from goal it might not be as fast as in the past. Be sure you measure your progress by comparing after down day weights to after down day weights, and after up day weights only to after up day weights ... do not compare the two. Carly is right, the scale will bounce, but it's just water/food weight not "real" weight. I think you will have so much fun on this WOE! but do eat your up day calories.

First weekend on JUDDD went well until today. Was supposed to be a DD and it didn't quite work out like that :-/

Will make tomorrow a DD and get back on track. Trying to not be too hard on myself so that it doesn't turn into a string of UDs.

I didn't lose an ounce my first two weeks on JUDDD BUT I stuck with it and I am now maintaining at 10 pounds below my original goal weight. Patience is the key to JUDDD.

Today is my official first day on JUDDD and first DD. I love this thread....so much good advice and encouragement.

I have calculated my UD to be 1865 calories and my DD to be 373 calories with light exercise. I think I actually fall somewhere between light and moderate exercise plans but figure I'll go with the light since everyone says people overestimate their exercise

I've done alot of reading on these boards and the book over the last week, and have decided my DD's will be much easier if I don't have to think about them, so I am going the shake/smoothie/soup route. I plan on having my morning coffee, a slim fast shake, a south beach smoothie, and chicken noodle cup-a-soup, coming in around 390 calories (I will add another cup-a-soup for 50 more calories if I feel I need it.) I will probably do this for my DD's the first 2 weeks until I get used to them.

Good luck on your first DD. My suggestion is to use the calories for little to no exercise to start with. Your calories look more like what I started with 45 pounds ago although I did the first two weeks with 500/2000. Maybe that is why I didn't lose an ounce the first two weeks but it did get me started on my weightloss journey. Then I jumped to very low DD's and kept on going.
Good luck and remember Patience. JUDDD is not a fast WL method for many.
Broth is my go to 5 calorie food or rather stomach filler. Works great.

Welcome Soccer Mom!

I am doing the same thing you are. I started last week and did really well with shakes/soup. I tried to eat real foods on Friday and it wasnt the best day. Sunday I just screwed up all together. So today I am back at it and having a DD.

I am going to have a 200 cal protein shake this morning and tonight I will have some soup that I like a lot. That will all put me below 400cal.

Give it a try, but if you aren't getting the results you want maybe drop down to little/ no exercise. For your first 2 weeks you can go up to 500 if needed.

You will probably struggle with your DD tomorrow having not completely nourished your body today by not hitting your UD goals. So I would do an UD and really try to reach your goals. There are lots of ideas for calorically dense items you can use to hit your goals. Peanut/other nut butters, nuts (1/4 cup pecans is 200 cals - easy to eat 1/4-1/2 cup for me!), adding butter to veggies, coconut butter/oil, adding olive oil or full fat mayo to things where appropriate, dark chocolate, regular chocolate, a candy bar, fat bombs, a bowl of ice cream, full fat ice cream, yogurt, cheese, the possibilities are endless.

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.

There are lots of ideas for calorically dense items you can use to hit your goals. Peanut/other nut butters, nuts (1/4 cup pecans is 200 cals - easy to eat 1/4-1/2 cup for me!), adding butter to veggies, coconut butter/oil, adding olive oil or full fat mayo to things where appropriate, dark chocolate, regular chocolate, a candy bar, fat bombs, a bowl of ice cream, full fat ice cream, yogurt, cheese, the possibilities are endless.

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.
and I agree.
