What to do if your UD has to be on a Saturday every week?

I am considering trying this plan, but every Saturday has to be an UD for me because we eat out as a family every Saturday.

Would I do two DDs in a row (Thursday and Friday) every other week? A medium day every other Friday?

Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

You can do any number of things, and will have to try around to see what works best for you.

1. Have fixed UDs and DDs each week, with a MD one day per week.

2. Have 2 UDs or 2 DDs in a row each week. May not be your best option, but you can try.

3. Stick with EOD rotations and save all or almost all your calories for that one meal each Saturday, and just make it as low cal as you can.

The key is to make it work for you so you'll stick with it for the long haul. Good luck!

I am trying fixed UDs now, afcgirl. If you figure out your maintenance calories for the week, then figure out your "dieting" calories to amount to the lbs you hope to lose each week, it's do-able. I am planning on MWF DDs, and TThSun UDs, with 1500 on Sats.

My DH helped me by telling me he wants to eat out every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.
Ok I said, I shall adjust my schedule to him. That gives me a medium day every Saturday
which works out fine. You can adjust easily to having every Saturday an UPP.

Thanks everyone!

Here's my plan: 400 cals for my DDs. UDs will be 1200 cals on Tues and Thurs, 1800 cals on Saturday, and 1000 on sunday. Oh and low carb except on Saturday for dinner. So:

Mon 400
Tues 1200
Wed 400
Thurs 1200
Friday 400
Sat 1800
Sun 1000

I started today, so far so good. 400 cals.

Wish me luck!

Edited to add: I will be eating within five hour window of 2:00-7:00.

I'm not sure what your age, height and weight is, but those numbers are not really JUDDD. JUDDD is marked by the alternating high and low number. I really do hope it works well for you, but if not, try using the numbers you get on Dr. Johnson's calculator with a MD on Friday. So DD on Th, MD on Fri, UD Sat, DD Sun, UD Mon, DD Tue, UD Wed, DD Th and so on.

Hmmm, maybe you're right. I have to admit I am scared to eat at 1800. I just hate that it will "ruin" my efforts after a DD. Do people really lose more weight by eating up to the UD number? Or is it simply to encourage you to stick with the plan for a longer time by feeling the plan is doable?

my days are around 2000 and my dd's about 750 because that's where my body is most willing to part with pounds. The scale will certainly bounce after an UD. If you really want to see what is looks like, really peruse the Weigh In threads.

Have you read the book yet? There is a lot of great info out there as to the true benefits of this WOE. It's not about 'encouraging you to stick with the plan', it's the real benefits.

I hope whatever you choose works for you!

Most people really need to eat up to their UD calories allowance to enable them to stick to the DDs. You are asking a lot of your body otherwise, and if the Sirtuins don't kick in you won't get the true health and wellbeing benefits of JUDDD.

I never recommend 2 DD in a row, but have been known to slip it in myself, 2 UD are often a better option.

Remember, this is not a race, we would all like to be slim tomorrow but a sensible approach is always better.

Remember the scales are evil. Please take your measurements if you haven't already done so. And it is a great ida to have a pair of pants that you are aiming to fit into. Some people buy a pair in a small size from a Thrift store, just to try them on every now and again. It is a great way to see progress when the scale is bouncing...and it will!

Using the calories given on Dr. Johnson's calculator is important because that is how the plan is meant to be done. It works very well the way it is written. There are a lot of us here to prove that. The alternate UD and DD work to keep your metabolism revved up and keep you from entering starvation mode. The other wonderful health benefits are also achieved by alternating high and low days.

If you give us your height, age and weight we can figure your numbers out for you, but I can tell that a 400 calorie DD (which is on the high side) should not go with a 1200 calorie UD (which is on the low side). I'm 5'2", 37, 122 and my numbers are about 1550/300. When I started juddd at 189lb they were 1900/380. This plan works if you follow it. I don't think anyone will tell you differently. If your UDs are way too high every UD or your DDs creep up, up, up losses may be slower, but if you follow the calculator recommendations I'm pretty certain you will be pleased.

Thanks everyone! I am 5'8", age 44 and around 137 pounds. I like my weight around 128. It has crept up this summer after not being good with lcing and taking vacations.

Based on the calculator, my UD goal is around 1800 and my DD goal was around 370. But I compromised with 400 (I think doctor suggest 500 the first two weeks?).

You are convincing me to try to eat to 1800 but that is higher than my typical lc day. It is hard to eat a lot of calories when lcing. I will try though!

Yep, I get the same numbers as Cindy - 1637/327.

There's no problem using 500 during Induction, and beyond if you're still losing well. These numbers are an estimate and can't perfectly fit every body/metabolism, but they are a good place to start.

You're both right, but when I first calculated it I chose light exercise (I do work out 4-5 days a week). At 20% with light exercise I get 1870 and 374. I rounded up to 400, thinking it would be easy to eat 2 Quest bars on DDs (actually 380 cals).

Hi again afcgirl, if you are having difficulty getting in the calories on LC may I remind you how a little extra butter here, or cream there, a few pork rinds or extra mayonnaise are easy ways to add calories? An avocado with vinaigrette or ranch is heaven on earth. Cheese?

Now I am feeling hungry, lol.

Thanks Cindy, funny I had 4 slices of Swiss cheese for lunch (today is my UD). I love cheese! I try to limit it to 4 ounces a day though.

Avocado with Ranch dressing sounds great, I never thought of that! Do you put it on something?

No, cut the avo in half and fill the hole with dressing. To die for. Ceasar is my favourite, Cardin's Original of course.

It's really good with French or Russian dressing too! Though I guess those are higher carb.

afc, most JBs recommend the little or no exercise calculations, unless you are seriously training for a marathon or do manual labor at work. Since you seem reticent to eat too many calories, 1600 could work great for you. I disagree that you need to eat less than 400 on your DDs, at least at first. You may be able to eat that (and a little more) and still lose. You are so close to goal, and you will be able to eat even more on DDs after you get to maintenance. 500 cals will get the sirts benefit flowing, so anything below that will be good.

ETA: At your height and weight, your goal is really quite low. You could start doing some weight training to gain muscle to look more toned and slimmer, if that is what you are after (like most of us!). JUDDDing will just be icing on the cake!
