How about all my DD calories in a single lunch?

I haven't read the book yet, sorry, but can I use all my DD calories for a single meal? Or would that ruin the effect of nearly fasting?

BTW, I mean regularly, not just once.

You sure can! I regularly save most/all my calories for dinner every DD and it has worked great for me. I think on top of having the "fasting" DD, we're also narrowing the eating window down to a very short period, like an hour or less. That must be worth something!

I agree with Carol above... but for myself found that one meal a day left me with no energy. YMMV, but sure go for it. For me, mini meals work at my usual meal times.

When I am not working, I usually save my calories for dinner. That way I have a nice meal to look forward to at the end of the day. This does not affect my weight loss one way or the other.

Calories on JUDDD are however you want them. Mini snacks all day long ( I eat around 80-100c every 2 hours from 10:30 a.m. on on DD's) all in one meal for dinner, lunch or even breakfast! Same with Up days! That's what makes JUDDD amazing, within the numbers, it is all up to you!!!!!

I have even been known to save 120c on a DD Friday for wine in the evening!

I usually do the bulk of my DD calories at lunch, and then have a very light dinner or no dinner. No problem.

Wow, thanks for all the feedback. Those of you who've listed your stats have remarkable losses too!

Without having tried it, it just sounds better to me - one good meal rather than a few lousy meals.

LOL on the few lousy meals concept. I've only been JUDDDING for 3 1/2 months, but have come to love my wasa cracker (35 calories) with one laughing cow wedge on top (35 calories) and a dill pickle slice (0)... it tastes wonderful, and believe it or not - fills me up as a meal. YMMV of course. Enjoy and welcome to JUDDD!

I do that with thinly sliced cucumber and tomato instead of pickle It's a very satisfying "mini meal"

I like a piece of deli ham (25) with 1/2 wedge of LC cheese (17) and a piece of dill pickle (2.5). Then I might do another round of the same for a total of 90 calories. If you roll it up and cut it into little bit sized pieces, it's delicious and seems like more.

Maybe I'll appreciate tiny meals once I'm more adapted.

Thanks for the welcome.

Allison, everyone's different, but I find that if I don't have any calories left to consume in the evenings on DDs, I don't like it. If I have to eat during the day, I try to keep it to 100 calories or below, so I have at least 200 for dinner and a treat.

Another idea for a "big" meal that is low in calories is half a bag of salad, or 1/3 (it's a lot!), grape tomatoes, or regular tomato cut into small pieces, cucumbers, celery and a T or 2 of bacon bits with Walden Farms 0 calorie dressing (there are lots of different ones...I like Honey Mustard). Puts a good bit of volume in your tummy so you can feel satisfied. If it's your largest meal, you can add a 70 calorie pack of tuna, an ounce or two of chicken breast, etc.

I made a turkey chili last night that was 1200 calories total, and about 8 servings. That's 150 calories a bowl, and very satisfying. I added 1 T of low fat shredded cheese for 20, and 1 T of light sour cream for another 20.

No, I often eat up to 400 calories. But I try not to eat because it is 'time' to eat, or because others are eating. I especially try not to eat if I am not hungry, and surprisingly that happens to me more and more often as the years of JUDDDing go by.

Somehow I was under the impression that you start your DDs at 20% and then increase them over time. It sounds like you've lowered them or stayed at 20%. (Need to read the book, I know.)

Depending on your weight, it might go up. Mine went under 500 after the first two weeks, although I keep it at around 500 now, still.

The first 2 weeks is called Induction, and you can eat up to 500 calories on DDs. Then after that, you're supposed to transition (whether all at once or easing your way down) to your calculated 20% number). DDs will likely get smaller as you go - they have for me. But not everyone does that, and not everyone uses 20%. Some have great success with higher DDs for a long time.

JUDDD really is all about figuring out what works for you. And that can change over time. Just keep experimenting and you'll find your sweet spot! Just don't change things too often, or you'll never really see what the patterns are.

As I am maintaining, I could go higher on my DDs if I wanted too, providing I was prepared to count my UD calories, and those are never 'supposed 'to go over 1440.

Personally, I prefer to push the UD calories as high as I reasonably can which means lower DDs. I have chosen this path partly because it suits my lifestyle and personality (I am an all or nothing person, lol) but also, importantly, to keep the Sirt1 gene as active as possible.

One of the main reasons I was drawn to JUDDD was the health benefits.

Sound advice. I know that many of my past experiments were too short lived to see what the effects would be in the long run.

When I was doing the JUDDD plan over a year ago, I split up my meals, usu. 3 a day, and frankly really found the DDs hard - felt like I was constantly thinking about and fantasizing about food. This time around, I'm not doing the true JUDDD plan, but another form of intermittent fasting that is 2x wk and I somehow found that for ME, eating just eating one meal, the evening meal w/my family, is what's working for me this time around. I feel kind of free during the day, knowing I'm just not going to eat 'til dinner. I find I get the "growlies" strongest a bit before noon, but I drink water or coffee and the strong pangs just kind of go away. I'm also noticing a HUGE upsurge of energy and positivity on these days. I thought I'd feel weak and cranky, but really don't most days. It really does feel good, in a weird way, to truly feel HUNGRY for that evening meal.
