Rereading The Alternate Day Diet.....
 
I read (okay skimmed...:o) the book when I first recieved it 2 years ago. I decided to crack it open again yesterday and can't believe how helpful it is! I soaked in all the scientific info and actually "get it" this time around, talk about motivational! I'll admit my last two stabs at JUDDD were crash and burn, I'm quietly chugging along this time (on day 2 so just starting up) and the book is a great help, I'm up to chapter 7, the one on nutrition and boy is it helpful as even my most sucessful JUDDD attempt was wrought with "ice cream days" (my UD calories were exactly the total amount of calories of my favorite mint chocolate chip ice cream...sooooo I would only eat ice cream all day long! :down:). In comparison I just had a tomato, broccoli, mushroom and zucchini stir fry for my DD lunch, so far so good. My UD will consist of a small BOWL of ice cream not the whole 1/2 gallon.

I guess all I really wanted to stress was, if you havn't read the book it truely is motivating and a (so far) very good read! :clap:

I just finished re-reading it too, Becky. I just picked it up whenever I had a few minutes and it took a few weeks, but I really soaked it up again too. That information is so motivating!

Don't forget that the revised version comes out at the end of the year too. I've already pre-ordered from Amazon, and I can't wait to find out what new research has found about it.

The new version is on my wish list, I read about it on the other thread. I too can't wait to see what new research is coming down the pike. I'll give my old copy to my sister, maybe it will motivate her.

Wow, I never thought about eating only ice cream for my UD. Now, to find the most decadent flavor!! :D :D :D Just kidding, although it sounds like fun LOL. I need to re-read (okay, really read for the first time) my JUDDD book too. It's in my library. ;)

How does one find that?

I wish I could find it!

It is on Amazon for buying now for the December release. I pre-ordered also.

I just realized you must mean the "Every Other Day Diet" by Krista Varady, right?

LoCarbGal 10-01-2013 07:26 AM

Shirl, that one is coming out end of year also. But we're referring to the "Alternate Day Diet - Revised" by Dr Johnson.

I ordered both of them yesterday. I'll have some good reading time over winter break, so it will be perfect.
