Anyone else feel ill when starting JUDDD?

I just started on the plan this past Sunday, 7/7, and I've noticed on the UD's that I feel kinda sick. Especially in the morning and a little throughout the day. Not enough to keep me from eating though. I feel much better the next day when I'm fasting again. Anyone else go through this?

Hm, it's a problem that she developed later rather than at the outset but have you seen Flutter/Melinda's thread? Oy! Completely TMI but gas pain on UD...

You know, I had some strange sensations, pains, general ick feelings when I started. Nothing so bad that I ever considered stopping though. They all passed and left me feeling great. I'm so glad I didn't quit because of those feelings though! I wonder if it's part of some detox our bodies go through when we finally allow them to attend to business besides digestion. I know I had kept my body pretty preoccupied with digestion for a long time!

I had a pretty bad headache and mild nausea my first down day and today on my second the nausea is gone but having a very mild headache. I think your body just has to get used to calorie cycling and I also believe this process has a detoxing effect on the body which can cause discomfort.

What I'm doing is drinking a lot of water to keep my system hydrated and flushed. I felt really good on my second up day and actually made better food choices than I thought I would. Hang in there some more and based on what I've read you'll feel a lot better.

WOE: 5:2 now JUDDD

I started with 5:2 and was pretty sure that in combo with clean eating made me detox, as Carol mentioned above. It went away, but it took a couple weeks. Of just feeling kinda yuck part of the time. I figured it was a good thing...needed to get the crud out.
Good Luck!

I've had headaches, but I agree that it's your body detoxing. For me, it may also be dehydration. I'm horrible about drinking my water some days. I'm two weeks in, and I'm still getting the headaches, but I'm not worried about them. I drank beer one night on my UD, and that probably contributed.

Lately, I've been really sleepy on my UD. Although yesterday, which was a DD and was after the end of TOM, I conked out for an hour. I normally don't nap. So far, DD have been fairly energetic.

I've noticed I have really weird leg cramps at night after a DD. I toss around trying to stretch them out at night. Anyone else get leg cramps? I added calcium into my vitamins.

Yes^^^^ for the leg cramps. I find the potassium particularly helpful, but both are good.

I had a general icky feeling in the beginning, but it passed. I'm now very energetic and have better focus on my DD and may get sleepy on an UD if I eat too early in the day. I almost always wait till after 1pm on UD and then usually just have a yogurt. I do most of my eating for dinner and a bedtime snack on most UDs and plenty of coffee

I was doing so much better about limiting my coffee during WLM and now I seem to have gone back to my old bad habit of too much.

JUDDD changed my life. It transformed my health, gave me freedom and restored my confidence.

JUDDD is very simple, very livable and very flexible. JUDDD allows weight loss and life to happen simultaneously.
