So my challenge here now is to maintain my weight - of course I would be happy to lose more - but I will be satisfied to maintain.

I've been following the new book with some interesting results. I have stopped dieting/restricting but on my terms. I haven't lost half my body weight just to risk gaining it all back, despite what anyone writes in their book. I am still restricting sugary junk and starch and gluten as they are my triggers. However I have been eating when hungry and what's interesting though is I seem to be eating in some kind of natural JUDDD way. If I overeat one day i.e. fatty meat, fruit (which I just have to try and eliminate because it's a craving trigger but for me it's soooo hard), greek yoghurt then the next day I'm not hungry and can go all day with a few coffees and then I eat a very small dinner. For instance tonight I had half a leftover t-bone and I was full. So in a way I'm doing a loose JUDDD, but when I was doing a formal JUDDD I felt stressed out on the UD's because I knew it was a DD the next day so I would be out of control on the UD. And just the thought of every second day being a DD used to stress me as well. This way it's more of an instinctive kind of IF or JUDDD.

I now make sure I eat at my designated spot at the table with no distractions, eat slowly and enjoy each piece and only get on the computer only after I finish eating.I have to say food tastes so good this way. Also no eating in front of TV or computer or when reading. I've still to work on leaving a portion on my plate, gahh, that's hard for a former fatty to do..lol.. but I'm easing into this slowly. I rather do this slowly and properly then try to incorporate everything and burn out.

However, I'm loving this - it's feeling very natural and I would be happy to maintain this kind of eating style. I could never do the three meals a day or the breakfast, it would just set off anxious hunger for the day. I'm just going to have to face the fact that sometimes I need to overeat as long as I don't do it too often. If I can have the occasional binge, followed by a light day, and then a medium type day at work where I try and eat a healthy lunch and dinner, no sugar/starch. If I'm craving sweet stuff then I will make cocoa crack or fruit at the very worst. I wouldn't feel deprived this way and perhaps my body needs the binge to address leptin/metabolism issues, and just to keep the body guessing so there is no starvation mode. I'm hoping that giving myself permission to binge on safer foods, provided it's followed by a light day (which seems to be the case naturally as after a big refeed I'm not hungry the next day) that I could make peace with this monster. There is no way I could eat normally after a binge day, despite what the experts say, it doesn't work for me, it will continue the binge.

I've also been re-reading Mastering Leptin and some items I didn't read earlier or I have forgotten have emerged. He says calcium has a direct influence on a brain signal called agouti. Too much agouti causes people to gain weight as it slows down metabolism, it enhances the production of excessive leptin and reinforces higher levels of NPY that cause food cravings (pages 182-183). He says "to help weight loss, calcium is only going to work during times when a person is not overeating. The combination of appropriate dietary restriction and increased calcium intake has the best weight-loss effects". I'm just wondering if greek yoghurt may be a good choice for a DD? Worth a try.

I like your plan, Mojo. I think eating in the natural JUDDD way is brilliant. Your body tells you when you need a DD.
I was thinking of switching to 2 UD followed by 1 DD. I like to have 2 UD in the row. But not yet. I need to get to my happy number first before I switch.

Greek yogurt (or regular yogurt) is trigger food for me. I always add honey to it and can't stop eating it. But if you can eat it without triggering cravings, it would be a nice DD food.

Oh no even greek yoghurt? I can't eat normal yoghurt, has always been a trigger, but greek yoghurt is da bombe for me. I think it's the high protein or I did read that by the process it's made it is tolerated better than other dairy. I also prefer the 0% one, I know we are supposed to have full fat but at my weight of 119 I'm thinking CICO does count. Even Byron and Paul Jamieson from the PHD are suggesting lean meats and CICO for weight loss. I guess this is evidenced by JUDDD which is about the calories in the end over the long period.

Oh yea in Mastering Leptin Byron says if you crave sugary carbs etc it's a seratonin deficiency and if fatty meats it's a dopamine. Seratonin is soothing and dopamine hits the pleasure centres. I am craving fatty meats like crazy at the moment and as the WB seems to be affecting my AS I'm thinking I have a dopamine issue. Or maybe it's placebo, who knows **sigh**

On that fatty meat note, Marika it's Saturday morning here and I'm excited as I'm making lamb shanks and oxtails slow cooked in oven..yum..yum - I have been planning all week this "planned binge". Prior to that I'm going for hour walk and hour bike ride to earn it and a light GY day on Sunday. My favourite bike/hike route has been affected by the fires and I yet to see the damage as I've been away with work but it will be sad to see what has happened, the poor animals/birds. I'm going to join a weekend bushwalking group..lol..I'm just loving walking/hiking and I think joining a group will make it a longer challenge and push me. I've also started from last night light weights in the garage, uggh, I hate weights find them boring but know I will have to do it. Giving up my gym membership was the best thing I did. Getting dressed in gym gear, then driving in my car, to walk in one spot like a mouse on a wheel in a smelly steaming gym, watching ugly music videos, jumping back in the car to go home was sooo boring and difficult to do; but exercising out in the fresh air has given me a love of exercise. Long slow walking guys, it was my friend during my weight loss and even read yesterday in Mastering Leption that Byron recommends it for weight loss via leptin control.

I agree mojo eating 3 normal meals after a binge day or higher calorie day only results in more weight gain or the desire to continue eating. I think if we can follow our bodies cues within reason of course then JUDDD probably is a natural way to eat.

Grrrr. I slept poorly and have been tired all day which I think is what inspired me to eat breakfast which I rarely do because it causes me to want to eat all day. I am eating too much, nothing totally off plan but am on the verge of wanting to go out and get my binge foods. I hate this and am fighting hard to not give in to the cravings. I may be up slightly from eating today but it will be much worse if I binge.

Keep active, keep busy, go for a brisk walk, do some weights, do some push-ups, have a hot shower, wash your hair, clap your hands to end the binge (an old psych trick I read somewhere) eat safe foods, don't go to the store.

Went to the store to get salad dressing and my buproprion from the pharmacy. Line at pharmacy was crazy long so I decided to forgo the line and bought junk foods. Good news is something stopped me from consuming every morsel and I ended up throwing a good deal of the crap in the trash. I feel bad but not terrible as right now I still have the carb high. Tomorrow will be a so called DD, as I will probably fast most of the day easily. I hate the thought but I really do think it is just always going to be this way so may as well just deal with as best as possible. I posted here to try to fight it and walked around the store kind of undecided but still bought the crap, waste of money too! I just think when the thought of binging comes I may as well just indulge it because sooner or later I will give in anyway. It is like I am totally on plan and doing great without effort for a week or two and then the binge thoughts seep in and I can't seem to counteract them. It is like a nagging that won't let up until the urges are satiated. Now I will gain more pounds because I tried to fight it with too much low carb food beforehand. I should no better than this eating more low carb food when I get in that mindset never works!!

Jeanie, I am glad you threw the rest of the junk out. I have done it many times and it is horrible waist of money but I always tell myself that I have already spent the money on it so it is better in the trash than my belly.

I totally understand everything you said. I am trying to accept the fact that binges happen and there is not much I can do about it till I find the reason and solution. Today I feel normal and in control. Still have the carb hangover but no craving whatsoever. When I binge I feel scared that I wont stop, it is horrible feeling not to be in control. I go into panic mode when I binge or I should say right after I binge. I am baffled how can we do well for some time and boom something happens that we need the carbs and no protein and no mental talk can take care of it. We just have to appreciate the days we stay binge-free. I wonder if what are bodies are doing could be considered carb cycling. It is usually 1-2 days for me when I binge and than I am back on LC. Maybe it would not be a bad idea to schedule the carb re-feed day even though we may not necessary feel like eating carbs on that day. Just thinking out loud here.

Sorry folks, we are talking about all these issues in the weigh check-in. Maybe we should move it to our journals.

Wow you girls have been busy whilst I've been away and some good work been going on!!

I tried to be reasonably good with my eating. However a little alcohol took play. I did do a sneaky weigh in when I got home but its the end of the day and I was clothed. So will do actual one tomorrow. Then 2 more days and off to the Canaries for a week.

I had my acrylic nails taken off last week after about 4 years of continual wear. Ouch my nails were soo sore. So have spent the last 5 days with most of my nails plastered up. Oiling and taking care of them as best as I can and taking Biotin...with the sunshine next week hopefully they will recover. Reckon it.ll take about 4 months for them to recover fully. Love the acrylics but its the pain of the continual filing and drilling of the nail. Plus 3 weekly infill expense of around $20 each time. I can do without that.

Sorry Jeanie that you are finding it so hard to stick with it all. However, good move ditching all the junk that you somehow picked up.

Remember a minute on the lips a lifetime on the hips lol..try that Mantra maybe. We are all here supporting you and guess will will all get down days etc.

Welcome Barbie.

I have the book mojo, but have never tried it. A couple of weeks ago I thought I might try it and went out and bought sweet potatoes, but chickened out and then my son ate them all.

Hmm well of course HER diet is the best... She says with Atkins the higher fat levels contribute to insulin resistance, the very thing you are trying to heal. She says the Atkins plan also creates a huge problem in your serotonin and beta-endorphin systems. If you follow Atkins to the letter, you will minimize your insulin production, but to make serotonin, your body requires insulin to move tryptophan (an amino acid from the protein you eat) from your bloodstream into your brain. If you don't have a carbohydrate-only insulin response to help tryptophan cross the blood-brain barrier, your serotonin level will drop. Your ability to “just say no” will drop dramatically. Your depression will return with a vengeance.

Six or eight weeks in if you try a little something sweet then your cravings will awaken. The sleeping giant of your sugar addiction, now Your impulse control mechanism, which is dependent upon serotonin, is shot. This is called rebound and you are in big trouble. Then it's even more difficult to find your way back to success with the Atkins plan. The higher levels of fat you have been eating on the plan have actually made you more insulin-resistant, have disturbed your serotonin levels and set you up for serious beta-endorphin priming.

Could this be happening to us Jeanie..lol would a potato in the evening help? She also advocates 3 meals with protein and carbs..sigh..... I feel like one step forward and three steps back...it's the same old same old... but I have to admit it is interesting. She's been around years, I remember reading this about 10 years ago or more.

Nuts are evil because they are so more-ish. My husband counts out 10 almonds a day for the health benefits. Yes 10 almonds and puts packet back in his drawer and goes on his merry way..grrr..... I just totally abstain from them as I can't control myself.
I am ashamed to say that I have in the past dug packets I threw in the trash I now have to spoil them; you know throw cat food or scraps or something disgusting in there.. horrible waste of food, people starving the the world and all that, we suffer from excess, it's crazy.
