JUDDD 5:2 ?

Hello,

What's the difference between Juddd and 5:2?
I apologise if this is a really stupid question, other than the alternate days apart from 5 'off plan', 2 fasting .. I don't see much difference ... ?

Thanks

WOE: Controlled carb, real food
The official version of JUDDD (as written by Johnson) specifies the number of calories for both up days and down days, and the number allowed for down days is calculated depending on your size/age/how fast you want to lose.

Other main variants I know of are:
Every Other Day (Varady) — 500 cals on alternate days, eat freely in between
Fast Diet (Mosley) aka 5:2 — 500 cals for women, 600 for men 2 days per week, eat freely on the other days.

It seems a few people here have used an alternate day version to lose weight, then maintain with 5:2. In fact the alternate day authors themselves tend to recommend maintaining by increasing calories on the down days. Mosley (5:2) suggests 6:1 for maintenance.

Yes, there are a lot of similar diets. There are just as many variants on low carb diets, with slightly different carb numbers, protein requirements, ratios, forbidden foods &c.

In the end it’s a matter of finding something that allows you to get to and stay at the weight you want, and that you can actually live with, and feel good doing.

If you google JUDDD it gives you a quick break down. Basically with JUDDD you have a fast day, followed by a normal day, followed by a fast day. You constantly alternate the days, whereas with the 5:2 you only have two fasting days.

Way down deep I believe all of the 'fasting' WOEs cause the same good things to happen in the body. Just at different rates.

The nice thing (IMO) is, because we are all so different metabolically, we can each test the various eating patterns and figure out what works best for us individually. One size does not fit all in the wonderful world of eating.

Thanks everyone, a little clearer. I'll certainly look into it.
And sorry for my ignorant sounding question!

WOE: JUDDD/ 5:2 to maintain
Start Date: 2/21/12- Low carb (199lbs) 3/28/12 JUDDD (189lbs)
I followed JUDDD for my entire weight loss and then moved to 4:3 and eventually 5:2. Over the last year I have returned to EOD twice for about a month or so. I feel like my SIRT saturation is higher with EOD, but 5:2 has been great for maintenance for me. I never would have lost doing 5:2.

I eat between 1200-1700 on my 5 UDs and 150-250 on my 2 DDs during maintenance. During EOD I keep the DDs the same but stick to more consistent UDs closer to 1550.

There's a lot of stickys that help with JUDDD. I read the heck outta this forum until I was ready to jump into it. But asking always helps!
