DD Wednesday: What's your plan
 
I am really nervous about today. I have a business dinner tonight w/ the boss, another co-worker and some new clients so I'm trying to save all of my calories for that. Not eating at the dinner is not an option (awkward!!!) so I am going to do my best to get through the day on low to no calories.

I'm planning:
- diet sodas
- flavored waters
- pickles
- gluc zero calorie drinks
- zero cal miracle noodles
- egg whites and or broth if I really need something

Dinner: grilled fish, plain baked potato, plain salad

We'll see how it goes! I kinda hope it's awesome because I would love to save all my calories for DD dinners all the time. It would make life easier, for sure!

Have a great day everyone!

Good luck with the dinner!

I'm getting boring eating the same thing most DD's.
Whey pp and almond milk in coffee
Egg white & chicken bacon omelet
Salad w/low cal dressing & basa for dinner (LOVE basa!)
Greek yogurt w/some frozen blueberries
Cucumbers and/or beets, pickles, tomatoes...
~80 g protein and b/w 500-600 calories depending on if I poach or butter fry that fish.
Tuna lettuce wrap if I get super hungry

MintQ8 08-14-2013 09:22 AM

Good luck! It can be done!

B: iced americano with sf caramel syrup

elphie124 08-14-2013 09:34 AM

Thanks all. It's only 11:30 here, but so far, so good! I've added gluc to a couple zero cal drinks and had some black coffees and food hasn't really crossed my mind. I'm sure it will get more difficult as the day goes on, but I'm happy with how it's going so far!

Not sure what I am doing today, maybe food, maybe vlcd shakes hmmmm

Librarygirl 08-21-2013 04:24 AM

I don't have a plan, except to not eat over 500. I always say 400, but it's more like 500. :D

I posted that I wasn't worried about doing 2 UDs this weekend, but I am. ;) It took me a week to get back to my low last time I did multiple UDs (3), and I still haven't gotten below it. Hmmmm, going to try a MD tomorrow.

adillenal 08-21-2013 07:11 AM

B - coffee with HWC
If all goes well, nothing else today but zero calorie liquids

Not sure but I think she was referring to MWF as DD's so the weekend could be UD's. :dunno: Hope she wasn't saying three DD's in a row.

Barbo 08-21-2013 11:42 AM

Good Plans Everyone We Shall DO IT!
 
So far nothing except coffee with 2 tbs. HWC.

Hoping not to eat until dinner. Water, iced tea until then.
If I crumble beneath the pressure, home made broth with
Shiratake noodles.

Dinner: 2 oz. lean corned beef (homemade)
Coleslaw 1/2 c.
Carrots steamed 1/2 c
Green beans steamed, 1 c.
2 oz. baked potato, with 1 tsp. ICBIB Light
Later Tea with 1 tbs. HWC

This came in at 560 cal.

That's what I was wondering too. If it's MWF DDs, then yes I have tried it, but didn't lose. Some people say they do it with success. YMMV.

Is the only difference this way that you do DD UD DD UD DD UD UD instead of DD UD DD UD DD UD DD?

That doesn't seem like it is enough of a difference to make the difference of losing weight and not losing weight. :dunno:

Is there a link to your food calculator. I think yours is so good and easy
to read and understand.

Would appreciate the information

Sorry, but that is an Excel spreadsheet that I created. PM me and I'll tell you about it, if you like, but you will have to be very familiar with Excel to create one.

It does work for some people. I tend to eat more than my calculated calories, so when I do two or more UDs in a row I stall, and it takes me several DDs to start losing again. Then I would have another 2 UDs in a row, so it was frustrating, but I guess I would still lose over time. There would be one more UD, so more calories per week. Technically 4:3, not ADF. :)

RebeccaLatham 08-22-2013 05:14 AM

That makes sense. Thanks!
