I'm thrilled! After the DDs Thursday and Friday, I had no-counting UDs Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Yesterday was a DD of about 800 calories. I weighed this morning and I'm 125.6! Exactly where I was last week. It worked perfectly.

I have a vacation coming up in a few weeks. I plan a double again this Thursday and Friday. If I can get a couple of pounds under goal, it will give me some wiggle room for the vacation. With the double and a normal rotation, I may be able to do it.

That's awesome, Carolina! That may be something I try this month in order to finally start getting some more lbs down.

It isn't bad at all. I found the second one much easier than the first.

Great job CC! Are you double DDs both averaging 800? I find somewhere between a DD and a MD is good for my double DDs. It will especially help during a holiday week!

Actually I went back and found that my calories were about 450 on Thursday with 50 grams of protein and 550 on Friday with 57 grams. I love cottage cheese, it's low calorie, high protein and very satiating for me, so I get plenty of protein and I'm very satisfied. If I stick with that, I may not have to go quite as high as the 800 I had on my DD yesterday, but I certainly can if I want to. On Dr. Johnson's website my maintenance calories for DDs can go as high as 908.

BTW, I didn't see anything about MDs on Dr. Johnson's website or in the book. I don't know much about them.

He mentions it in the book- IIRC when discussing that some people might want to have fixed rotations and this could be accomplished by having and in between day (that may have been his wording- not sure). I don't have the book in front of me so not sure.

I do remember that part, but didn't see reference to a calorie suggestion. It seems maintenance calories according to the calculator are still DDs. If some are using their maintenance numbers to represent a MD, then I guess quite a few of us are actually doing some double DDs.

WOE: Back to JUDDD!
The original calculation (that I'm pretty sure someone here came up with) is to add your UD and DD calories and divide by two. So it's the "average" of the two days which makes up a MD. Then, someone else (Nancy, maybe?) discovered that it exactly matches the 60% calculation on Dr. J's calculator. To me, that wouldn't be a DD, since that's a "maintenance" day. 60% is not in WLM.

ETA: As I think about it more, I guess that could be considered a DD, but at maintenance levels. Hmmm. Food (or lack of food) for thought . . . .

It seems the health benefits of Juddd continue once you've reached maintenance as long as you continue to alternate. He talks about having different goals. Some are in WLM and some in maintenance. That's why the calculator lists both. Even in maintenance one would continue to have DDs and UDs. He doesn't discuss having fewer UDs in maintenance, rather his plan increases DD calories.

The truth is, we all adapt JUDDD to suit us. Some people do very low calorie DDs in order to have higher UDs. That isn't covered either, I don't think. If it works, and you're doing rotations, I'd expect you're going to get the benefits of IF.

ETA: I know that Dr. J says complete fasting is "better", but he still does give the 20% numbers for DDs. He also doesn't suggest that you can eat a lot more on UDs if you eat less on DDs, but if it works and you're losing weight, I don't see a problem with it. Likewise with double DDs.

These are all very good reminders and got me to thinking. I went back and watched Michael Mosely's video again, "Eat, Fast and Live Longer." There are so many variations of fasting and all have benefits. In the beginning he did a three day, four night fast wherein he only had a daily allowance of water, black tea and 50 calories of miso. The results were impressive. Then he experimented with alternate day fasting with one daily 600 calorie meal. That, too, was effective. Finally he settled on 5:2 with good results as well.

No matter how each one chooses to tweak our WOE, it's nice to be able to share our discoveries and results. Who knows what little changes may be the key we're looking for.

So, I tried it again Thursday and Friday. My calories were lower Thursday since I only had cream in my morning coffee and a salad. Friday I ended up with 490 calories and 53 grams of protein. It's still quite early, and I'm not hungry yet, but I'll definitely be eating breakfast today. Tonight is our date night, so I'm looking forward to something scrumptious.

Overall the experiment with double DDs wasn't bad. The only problem I had was last week when both DDs were quite low. Thursday my calories were probably under 200 and Friday they were under 500. I get a high from fasting days and Friday I was way over the top, so I decided it is probably a little much for me. This week I didn't do it.

Anyway, I wanted to report on my weight since I weighed last week before the doubles. Today was my weigh-in and I'm down 2.2 pounds.

I think the doubles may help some people from time to time if you've been Juddding for awhile and have rotations down, if the DDs aren't too low and if you think you can avoid binging on your next UD. I found I was fine the next day as long as I stayed away from sugar, but I'm always like that. Someone suggested making sure you have breakfast the next morning, and that helped me a lot.

I have done 2 DDs in a row on a few occasions. Just how life happened that week. Not planned. I will this week, and follow it with 2 UDs, then resume normal rotation. Be in tune with your body. To each their own.
