Love this post!
Love it!!
I am not to the point where I can have frozen treats in the house. Even the skinny variety. They are my downfall. I am confident the day will come when I can have a bowl of ice cream or a small pc of cheesecake and be satisfied. I trust JUDDD.
I am so glad we are on this journey together!
Isn't this forum the bomb?!
Love my JBs!

Thanks Sitain....I am sure I will get to the point where counting calories drives me mad lol, it sounds like you are doing really well.

Thanks Pat, I think I am addicted to this board now....was it ok to have the frozen treat do you think, it was 95 calories so I thought it was alright....or do you mean having them in the house we might want to eat the whole box lol...I hope you don't mind me asking, only I want to do it right.....yes this forum is definitely the bomb and everyone is so friendly that I want to bring you all home with me lol.

Skinny Cows are a great DD treat.

I don't have a sweet tooth as a rule, but they are fine.

Thank you, Kissa. I realized this morning that Wednesday(the day after tomorrow) will be my one-year JUDDD anniversary. Right now I am at 47 pounds down.

I have a question for any vets that are hanging around, if that's okay. I only started DD rotations as of last Wednesday, but I've been having sleep interruption for the past few days consistently (on U and D days). I fall asleep fine, but then wake up at 3 am and it takes me a good hour to get back to sleep. I know sleep issues are common when first starting, but has anyone found a good solution to sleep through the whole night?

I don't remember this happening to me last time I did JUDDD, so if it did, maybe it went away quickly and that's why I can't remember. Has anyone gone through this at first, but had it go away after a few weeks?

I'm no vet, having only began January 31. But I had terrible trouble sleeping on DD's the first 3 or so weeks. But in week 4 everything began to click & I've slept like a baby ever since, as well as having much easier DD's in general. Hopefully it is a short term issue for you, too!

Well, I got through my first DD yesterday and I'm feeling great today! I have done some full-day fasts before, but this will be my first time to try every-other-day. What do you think is a good period of time to stick with it to see if it works for me? A month? I want to make sure I give it enough time for the magic to start.

I think a supplement called Theanine Serene with Relora has been helping with my sleep in the past week. I can't be sure because I had several UD's in a row this past weekend which probably helped but I don't know. It had been months since I slept through the whole night until 4 days ago and it has happened 3 times since then. I also started ptero about a week ago as well. I've only been doing JUDDD for about 5 weeks so maybe it's just JUDDD magic.

It's pretty common, deedee. Lots of JUDDDers have experienced this and it does seem to pass in a few weeks. I didn't have this problem with JUDDD, but several years ago began waking at around 3am too, after a lifetime of sleeping straight through the night. Made me batty. I took one Benadryl at bedtime for several weeks, and immediately began sleeping through again. When I stopped taking it, I kept on sleeping through, so it apparently was a short term problem, or maybe the Benadryl just got me out of the pattern.

Congratulations on your first successful DD, Kim! I would recommend sticking to it for a full month and see what happens. There have been many who don't start losing for that time, and then the steady losses start. Others start losing right away. You'll have to see which one you are!

Hi, Kim!
I bet you will love JUDDD so much that you will WANT to stick with it.
But I think a full month to 6 weeks would be fair.
No other diet tells me I can take things a bit in stride every other day vs. always worrying about food!

I'd give it at least a month Kim, we are all different and the Magic is slower for some than others. Glad you had a good DD.

DeeDee, hope you get the sleeping sorted soon.

I noticed that too.
Just let me add that you are so smart to do this at a younger age.
I am 66. By starting now your coming years will be so much more peaceful!
I wish I had learned about JUDDD in my 30s. I can only imagine the stress and angst I could have avoided.
I am so glad you are here.
Big hug.

Has anyone else had any problems with excess energy while on JUDD....yesterday was my down day and day four of me starting this way of eating.....and I was so restless while trying to be on my laptop....I had to keep getting up as it was so strange, and then I couldn't sit still, my feet wanted to tap or dance lol.....in the end I had to for a two hour walk, the restless energy was still with me today and I had no choice but to scrub and clean the house to try and get rid of it and then had to go for a shorter walk to town, it doesn't feel quite as bad at the moment, but is it just me or does something like this happen to everyone....I kind of like being lazy and for some reason I can't be lol.

Hi Sandy! I've noticed an increased amount of energy since starting JUDDD, especially on a DD! I, too, very much enjoy being lazy (maybe that's how I got to 215lbs haha!) and don't know what to do with myself when the surge of energy hits. For now, I'm just counting it as a blessing and enjoying it.

Hi, I'm not a newbie. I fell off the JUDDD wagon last year due to family / university issues and put on 20 extra pounds. I am really disappointed and ashamed of myself.
This time I'm determined to be consistent and to forgive myself more.

! I would give JUDDD a good 4-6 weeks. By then you should know if it is a good fit for you.
