I can't even imagine losing two children and having two siblings fighting disease at such young ages. You've got a lot on your plate.

What blows to stand up under. My deepest sympathies.

Given the family history with your sisters, do you take coconut/medium-chain triglyceride oil? Or have any interest in that research as it deals with brain function? Aside from the personal sorrow, of losing your sisters as people, it must be frightening to worry about it happening to you as well.

Thank you all very much. After losing two children, it took many years to decide to try to be happy again. Having two wonderful, beautiful grandchildren has gone a long way to making that possible, especially when one of them looks so much like my daughter at that age. They both would have loved their Aunt Emily!

Yes, I do take coconut oil and MCT oil for the reasons you mention. I have also started a website to gather information about using the same to prevent and treat neurological diseases. Check my signature below to see the website about Alzheimer's disease.

I am also eating this way to prevent ALS, which killed my mother and my grandfather by the ages of 62 and 59.

Rebecca, your story makes me think of my aunt, another strong lady who perseveres in the face of adversity.

She lost her mother in 1983. Four years later she lost her brother (my dad) and her sister within the span of a few months. My dad died unexpectedly of a heart attack at the age of 56, and my aunt of thyroid cancer after a long battle.

Eight years ago, her 36 year old son died unexpectedly of a heart defect no one knew he had. This was the day before his second child was born. 1 year ago this Friday, her 47 year old daughter died from complications of Lupus.

She has 3 young grandchildren, all of whom are being withheld from her by vindictive ex-son and -daughter in laws. She battles for any contact with them at all.

I wonder at her strength in going on EVERY SINGLE DAY. I don't know that I could. She is all alone in the world, save her nieces and nephews who love her very much, and my mom - her sister-in-law - who has known and loved her since she was 8 years old. But we are all far away in distance.

You and she are two of the strongest people I have ever known. Remember how proud your children would be, and are, of you every day.

WOE: 5:2 now JUDDD
Start Date: June 2013
Rebecca,

First and foremost, I am sorry for your troubles. I know how difficult it can be to lose loved ones and care for those who are sick or dying. It is a strain, to say the least. And that stress manifests itself in many many ways.
You have gotten a lot of wonderful advice from some awesome women who have really made this WOE work for them. I admire each and every one of them. After not being able to lose weight in any traditional calorie restrictive manner, I tried 5:2, learned about JUDDD and started it. Ultimately, the deprivation was too much for me. I was starving and obsessive about food. And struggled adjusting to UDs. BUT, I do think it reset things for me on some level. Since that time, I have switched over to a straight 1200 calorie diet and it has been really, really, easy. And I will stay on this until I get closer to maintainance and then I will be back. It is part of my plan long term.
I firmly believe that this WOE is effective and will work, just not right now in my journey. I know I stand alone here, and I do not have nearly the expertise of others, but have you thought about taking a break? Trying something else? If you have already ruled this out - I get it. Just my one cent...
I wish you the very best and strongly encourage you to keep taking care of yourself...you have so much on your plate.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and comments!

I am actually doing much better than I was when I first started this thread. I have increased my DD food to 500 calories, high fat, moderate protein and very low carb, and my UD food is now 1810 calories with the same breakdown.

One of the reasons (I guess the main reason) I started JUDDD in the first place was because I could not take having to eat a small amount every day. Even eating 1400 calories per day seemed like such a small amount of food that I was feeling deprived and somewhat hungry on a daily basis.

Now, I get to eat so much every other day that it makes the DD easier to tolerate, especially since raising it to 500.

I'm glad that you are feeling happy with the new way you are eating! It just goes to show that we are all different.

All the best to you!

An aunt of mine lost 2 children as well - one through backcountry skiing in an avalanche and one through drowning. She's such a wonderful woman. And truly knows the ephemeral nature of life - just doesn't sweat the small stuff anymore.
So much of what we talk about here with calories and all that jazz is just so much small stuff. Maybe it's a way to try to maintain control in a world where it often feels like we have none?
I can't imagine the heartbreak you must have gone through.

Thanks, Ladies!

It is hard sometimes to care about my weight, especially when I go to take care of my sister.

Rebecca, I haven't tried this little acidic hack I ran across today, but it sounds sort of promising?

I am on my way to bed, so I can't read this right now, but I did glance at the first post, and it seems to be talking about eating low carb and low fat, which I do not do. Does it go into anything else besides low fat?

I'll try to read more in the morning. Thanks for the link!

Yes, it's more about the use of acidic food to assist with hunger suppression and glucose stabilization. No idea if that works or not but dill pickles are pretty yummy.
