WOE: JUDDD - EOD/STILLMANS :)
Start Date: June 2013
Is JUDDD weight loss slower than calorie counting?

Just something I have been thinking about - do you find that JUDDD weight loss is slower than regular calorie counting?

I read through posts re weight loss and generally most people seem to lose a lot slower than if they were following a normal say 1200 calorie diet. I also found myself when I did JUDDD in June I lost 10lbs but it came off slower than it normally does when I eat 1000-12000 calories per day

I don't understand why this would be the case - if you are eating 300/1800 that equals 2100 over two day which gives an average of 1050 so surely the rate should be similar??.....

WOE: Whatever plan keeps me around 150 lbs!
It came off faster for me than regular calorie counting (and much more enjoyably), though each of us reacts differently. It came off at about the same rate for me as I was losing doing low carb, but I didn't have the stalls as often or as quickly with JUDDD as I did with Atkins, and I got to eat whatever I wanted.

One thing that I have been noticing is that the speed I lose weight on a plan seems to equal the speed I can gain it back. I find JUDDD slower but the weight seems harder/ slower to regain. Potato hack and low carb can be quick for me but my weight gain also seemed to be faster. Maybe it is just that I can stay on track longer with JUDDD?

WOE: Atkins Induction/Juddd Modified
Start Date: 10/5/13
I find that when I combine both Juddd and Atkins, I lose much faster. I tried just Juddd and would stall out, same with doing just Atkins. So now I do a Atkins under 20net carbs day as my UD and a Atkins 72' Induction no carb day under 500cals as my down day and it works great for me. I think because our bodies are just so different, we really have to play trial and error game until we get what works best for us. Just mo, but that's what I had to do.

WOE: JUDDD - EOD/STILLMANS :)
Start Date: June 2013
I definitely agree on the re-gaining weight slower - I have managed to maintain my 10lb loss really easily after JUDDD.

I am going to give the plan another go & try and lose these last 10lb's, first DD tomorrow

I think the speed of any diet depends on the strictness of the dieter. I have been able to lose 35 lbs in a year, but could have lost twice that if I had followed the diet to the letter. However, I feel that I can maintain this loss quite easily, and am ready to lose more! One thing that *may* make JUDDD a slower way of losing, is the fact that UDs tend to get away from us sometimes, and we fudge on the numbers sometimes. Some lucky people can eat whatever they want, without counting UDs, and still lose quickly, but not everyone.

For me, the opposite has been true. I was on a 1000 - 1100 calorie a day diet for three months and lost 3 pounds. Since I started JUDDD, I have averaged 1100 calories a day (averaging the UD and DD calories), and so far, I've lost 16 pounds in less than 3 months. That's 4 pounds more than the goal I set for myself. I haven't weighed this weight for about 20 years. I thought my original goal weight was a long shot. For whatever reason, JUDDD works well for me. I used to lose weight easily (I gain it easily too!), but that had stopped for me since menopause started. Still, even though I lost weight pretty easily even through my 40s, I could never get down to my current weight, even with Atkins induction AND calorie counting. JUDDD makes my body think it's 20 years younger!

I think for me the speed of the weight loss is the easy but wrong thing to focus on as the important factor is how well I can maintain the loss. I do think of JUDDD as slow but on other weight loss plans I have regained to very high weights easily. i know that a year from now with JUDDD I will be close to the weight I am at now or perhaps lower but with other plans I was yo-yoing back up. This I am sure is not everyone's experience, just my own journey.

I should add a very crucial thing for ME--I also could not stick to a low calorie diet for anywhere near the amount of time I have stuck with JUDDD, and that is the key.

Yes! It doesn't matter if it is faster, if you just won't do it!

One thing I LIKE about the 'slowness' of JUDDD, is it gives me time to get used to my new weights as I am going down. I really FEEL like I have lost weight, not just that I can say a lower number.

That is also true for me.

It really doesn't matter if another WOE is faster for weight loss if you can't sustain the loss, or stay with it long enough to get to your goal.

Start Date: 7/7/13 - JUDDD
Besides the consistency of the weight loss (it's not messing with my metabolism) the other positive physical effects show me that I'm doing something good for my body.
I no longer have foot cramping or the severe pain of both plantar fasciitis and a metatarsal issue.
I no longer have hip pain at night that kept me awake many times.
Shoulder pain I've had for 18 years is all but gone.

Some would attribute those to weight loss in general, but I feel differently. I really believe reduced inflammation is related to the healing effects of the fasting periods.

Is there another WOE that can claim something so dramatic? Maybe so, I don't know, lol. All I know is what I've experienced.

I think you're right, Slimming-up. The non weight related benefits are different and more noticeable with JUDDD than with regular old calorie counting. My hair has stopped falling out, and I no longer have hot flashes, which I was having daily multiple times a day. If I hadn't lost a pound, those benefits alone would be worth it.

Also - Cindy, you have it exactly right: sticking with such low calories day after day, month after month, year after year is tough to impossible. For me, one day of "regular" calorie eating and I'd be set back several pounds which would take another two weeks of 1000-1100 calories to get off. Now, my weight doesn't seem to swing up and down so much - if I go up, in another DD or two, the weight is gone.

This is true for me as well. JUDDD may be slower than other options but ultimately its sustainable for the long term and that makes it "faster" in the sense that I can stick with it without bailing, gaining the weight back and a year later starting all over again.
I'm not at goal yet but this is the longest I've ever stuck with a "diet" (10 months). I'm not calling it a diet anymore - this is my new lifestyle.
I've got a blog post brewing in my brain about this but its not ready for the page yet.

that's the key. if i had to do MD's (which is how i look at calorie restriction as opposed to every other day restriction) everyday for the rest of my life.... i would never, ever, ever be able to do it. i think that is why i opted for LC when i first started on my weight loss adventure. at least i could actually EAT....

I'm convinced that it's the only way I am able to lose weight. It is a slow loss, but totally worth it!

Last week I ate 1200-1300 calories a day on a rotation break, while walking. I gained 5 lbs. I know it's not fat, but it's still alarming! I'm back on regular rotations now, and back to losing.

I've always gained on the regular low cal diet, maintained or lost a little on low carb, and has most of my success with fasting - just gotta see what you prefer and what works for you

I know it's probably just a mental thing, but I feel like I can take breaks from JUDDD and get right back to it easily. Other diets that I have tried were one offs, to put it like a Brit would. Either I was on it or I was done with it. JUDDD has taken me through a year and beyond, and I feel like I've gained a life-long tool to losing and eventually maintaining.
