I do get where you're coming from. In the beginning, JUDDD feels amazingly free on UDs, but consists of some pretty serious restriction on DDs. Very different from anything most people have ever tried. And DDs can be quite challenging, even after you've been doing it for awhile. But once it's ingrained, mostly it feels like no big deal, which is where I was coming from in my response.

And Christina, thanks for the reminder that Dr. Johnson suggests not counting on UDs. I guess I have blocked that out because when I read it I was feeling very restricted by my calorie counts and thought "Yeah right, like I will ever come even near as low as 1750 calories if I don't count." Now, I don't know where I come in, but I'm betting that some UDs are right around there or even lower. Some are higher, I'm sure.


Great post. We did not mean anything against your thoughts, Ferk. We have been doing JUDDD for a long time now, so I think we look at it a bit differently. If I was just starting out, I would just follow JUDDD and not try anything else.

I think that asking yourself if you really are hungry or if you are eating because of some other factor, then IE thoughts are great to run through your head at any time.

I haven't counted UDs since part way into my first month.

this is exactly how I feel about UD. I eat if I'm hungry- I don't if I'm not or not until I'm hungry.

So glad I ran across this because even after just a week on JUDDD, I usually don't feel like trying to get all the calories my UD says I should have (2268) because I'm full. I'm closer to 1500-1700 and have wondered if this would mean slow weight loss. It's kinda reverse psychology I guess. If I *have* to eat more then I don't wanna LOL. We humans are goofy! Anyway, I don't really want to have to count up days. Glad to see it's working just fine for those of you who have been doing this awhile.

After I read the book I took a 2 month break from JUDDD and did just HDE. Last week I decided to give it a try again to see if I could control my UDs. It seems to be working like a charm. I've had no urges to overeat so far. The principles in "Skinny Jeans" are excellent for both UDs and DDs.
