What am I doing wrong? Please help newbie.

3 pounds gained since Tuesday?! I'm counting my calories. I had a DD yesterday and I still went up a pound. I went up 2 pounds yesterday morning but I contributed that to my UD. my wedding is in less that 60 days. I need to see progress. Not weight gain. I didn't work out at all yesterday. On my ud the day before I ran/walked 3 miles and my last DD I went to Zumba. Maybe I'm not calculating the required cals I'm supposed to have correctly. Is it too much sodium? I've stayed away from carbs. Is there a eating window I've messed up. Please help.

I'm no expert but I would give it a few more rotations. You will definitely see a bounce if you weigh in every day. Maybe you can try wait until the end of the week to weigh yourself again. I'm sure others will be able to help!

JUDDD is not a rapid fat loss programme for most people. Johnson indicates that it takes 2 weeks of EOD rotations to stimulate SIRT1 production and settle into this WOE. Some people lose during this time but not everyone (Adi comes to mind).

There may be some useful comments and links" Newbie feeling discouraged, could use some help!

It's too early to be alarmed but I realise that's probably not what you want to hear with the wedding 60days away.

It's very early days yet. It takes a good while for the Sirt1 to kick in. If you stick to your calorie allowances, you should see good results within the 60days.

How much are you hoping to lose in a couple of months? While some people experience dramatic losses in their first few weeks, it's by no means guaranteed. As SlowSure pointed out, JUDDD is not a lose-weight-fast plan.

It might help us to help you if you share your height, weight and age, if you'd like us to check your cals.

Sometimes when the scale goes up, the inches are still going down. There are alot of factors to take in here for the scale up. My scale was stuck in the begining same bounces over and over. But when I was measuring I had lost like 8 inches. The scale eventually caught up, but it was frustrating for sure.

You might need more water, with all the exercise your doing. Maybe up your intake a little and see what becomes of it.

It could be hormones at play here. How close to TOM are you?

Yes, please share your stats with us so we can make sure you have the calories right. It's so easy to get them wrong in the beginning, we've all done it. I do think that it's not actual weight you're gaining, so try to be calm and let JUDDD do its thing. But I do understand how you feel with your wedding so close.

Another thing is that if you were following a plan where calories were restricted every day right before starting JUDDD, there is usually an adjustment period that will right itself in a week or so. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

Congrats on your wedding!!! You will be beautiful at any weight!

So what did you eat on your UD and DD?

Don't stress. It'll happen!

Thanks everyone! I am 5'5" and I started at 148 pounds. I would want to lose 10-15 pounds... I'm getting married in St. Lucia.. on the beach... ugh. I know exercise and calorie counting will get easier too at the end of this month because I am a teacher and have off for the summer... I moderately exercise 3-5 times a week... and I am pretty decent with my diet but nothing was budging... and I've had my thyroid and such checked...

Right now I was doing 500 calories DD and 2000 calories UD.. I've been trying to stay away from carbs completely on my DD and limiting them on my UD... I drink water alllll day long... a lot of it.. in fact, my father noticed my weight gain recently and thought maybe I drink too much water and I'm retaining it... I don't think that is the case though..

I was supposed to have my TOM this week... but I situated my BC to skip it this week because if I didn't it would fall on the week of my wedding... AHHHH.

That being said, any help or advice will be greatly appreciated...

I vote that it's your BC switcharoony. So keep the faith, keep doing what you are doing and it will come off. Also, be sure you're getting enough salt and potassium if you are pushing the water. How much do you drink a day?

BTW, I'm not a doc nor do I play one on the internet!

I'm guessing you put exercise days in the calculator on the JUDDD site?
I think most people claim to be sedentary, even if they do exercise, which
might be why your calories look high to me? I'm way over 148 and my
UD calories are at 2038, DD at 408. And I'm old, too.

With your numbers that you provided, and assuming you're 30 years old (I just guessed) you'd be at 351/1757. That also assumes little or no exercise, which generally is recommended for fastest losses, even if you do exercise. If you're younger, say 25, they'd be higher, but not by much. Of course, if you're older than 30, they'd go down a bit. So it kind of looks like you may be eating too much both on UDs and DDs for good losses. Sorry! That's a bummer to hear, I know, but maybe sticking with those numbers will help quite a bit in getting the weight moving.

I also agree that BC switches might be affecting everything.

Agreed! Your numbers are too high. I'm 100 lbs heavier than you and your numbers are way to close to mine.

The BC could definitely be a factor as well. Takes the body a little while to adjust.

Also, I think weighing in weekly instead of daily might cut down on the anxiety a little so you don't feel enslaved by the scale.

Good luck to you and congrats on the wedding.

I agree with LCG, 500/2000 is too high unfortunately. Please go to the JUDDD calculator and get your exact numbers, but I suspect that 350/1750 is about where you should be. You are already at a healthy weight for your height so losing 10-15 pounds may take a bit more effort. It can totally be done though, so adjust those numbers and continue with rotations!

You are close to my weight & height (though I am sure I'm older!). My Juddd calculator numbers are lower now, I think 1750-300ish, but I am able to lose still doing about 1850-2000 on UD but super low DD (under 150 usually). I'm with the others, plug in your numbers again on the calculator and be patient! Being so close to goal, it can be harder, but you will get there!! Congrats to you!!!!

Kbc congratulations on your upcoming wedding. What a beautiful location. I too am getting married in 43 days in Yosemite National Park. I've lost about 14lbs since starting JUDDD March 12. Gim sure once you adjust your calories you'll start losing. Good luck!

Ok.. so I'm 31... and I do work out 3-5 times a week but should I put in little or no exercise? Because if I put in little or no exercise it says: my DD are 352 my UD are 1762.. should I stick with this?

2261 for UD and 452 for DD if I put in I exercise 3-5 days a week..

what do you suggest? thanks for the help and the congratulation wishes!

Thanks for that info Kbc. You'll really have to play around a bit, but I honestly would start out at the lower end. If you want to keep your first 2 weeks' DDs at 500 (Induction) that's fine, then try and lower them a little later. My gut feeling is that you'll need to keep your calories at the lower number for quick losses, if that's what you're looking for. Hope this helps!

There you are, everyone is ahead of me.

If you find you DDs very hard you can do the first 2 weeks at 500 and drop down slowly to the lower numbers.

Do pop in here regularly, that seems to help weight loss, lol.

Oh that was probably someone who didn't want to exercise- at all.

If you don't want to do something, one excuse is as good as any other.

To be honest, though, you may find you have less energy on your UDs-
especially earlier in the day- so if you can work out on DDs- do it!

I tend to have more energy on DDs and exercise more often on DDs! Go for it if you feel like it.
