WOE: Back to JUDDD!
I lost most of my weight with JUDDD and maintained with a combination of JUDDD/5:2 for the last year. Right now I'm trying HDE/IE to try to establish a more "natural" way of maintaining. So far, so good, but I'm still learning.

WOE: Controlled carb, real food
I’m eating more or less what I want most of the time — not snacking, not having lots of sweets, really carby stuff only occasionally. And one or two days per week of low calories (around 500 I think, but I don’t actually count).

I’ve only been maintaining for about 3 months this time. I did it for about 7 years by keeping my carbs to around 60g per day. Then I fell into a menopausal black hole for a couple of years.

Hunger Directed Eating, or Intuitive Eating. I'm trying to wean myself off of the scale and calorie counting.

I love that. Have you read Geneen Roths books? She is all about hunger eating and intuitive eating. I think there is something there because I almost seem to overeat when I follow a "plan" or weigh myself. When I don't weigh and just stop and listen to what I want to eat, I lose weight.

Does that sound weird? I still struggle though because I am still on the scale and checking my weight..

I don't count calories at all though.

I haven't read any of her stuff yet. I read The Overfed Head by Rob Stevens, and am currently reading Thin Side Out: How to Have Your Cake and Your Skinny Jeans Too by Josie Spinardi. I hear good things about Geneen Roth, though.

I don't think that's weird at all. If we could just listen to our bodies and trust them to tell us what they want, it would be so much easier. I haven't fully given myself over to the process yet. Still working on it!

WOE: Low carb/calorie cycling
Alas, if 'listened to my body' I'd be back over 300 lbs! Seriously, my body wants to pack on those pounds, and my challenge is to ignore those urges and do what I know is best for my body.

I don't follow any 'plan' to maintain because during my weight loss, I developed a WOE for continued weight management. I eat much as did throughout my weight loss, but now at maintenance level.

Because of my sensitivity to carbs, I eat low carb (20g per day), and I watch my calories--because of age and hypothyroidism.

I weigh weekly because I can't deal with daily fluctuations objectively. Weighing weekly (and recording that weight to observe 'trends') served me well during weight loss, and I've continued to use to scale to keep me 'honest' during my years of maintenance. It's far to easy to become lax and delude myself that I'm not gaining (by the time clothes get tight I'd have gained too much!). The scale provides me with the data I need to confirm my WOE.

I find the scale gives me a better indication than clothes too. It’s too easy to wear slightly looser clothes and find excuses for why I’ve picked them. Much harder to deny the numbers.

good point. I think I fool myself sometimes. I need to start weighing everyday and get a new scale.

My body whispers "snickers! homemade german choc cake...Cheetos.. Fries ..
Krispy Kremes" It wants what it wants....my job is to feed it what it needs...

It may be just me but....I cant eat the same crap I ate before....maybe other peoples bodies only whisper healthy stuff..and balanced eating....mine...its cute..adorable and lies like a pro.

my body only asks for healthy low carb food... but I often deny it too much. I am working on it.

most of the time, it really wants more protein... or fat. Never carbs.

OMG, low!! Mine does the same thing!! Mine's got a name and it's Fat Jo!! And she'd love to get control of things again... but I've got her locked up tight -- she will never again have the upper hand!! I understand that I'll never eat like "carb eaters" -- today is day 9 without a loss, so I'm hoping I've found my "sweet spot" at 1200-1400 kcals and 10-12 carbs daily. I guess I am THAT sensitive to carbs... but it's all good! I know what I can and can not eat because I REFUSE to REGAIN !!

Wishing all of us continued success on our personal LC WOE journeys!!

WOE: Low carb/calorie cycling
I call my 'voice' the 'obese me' because that's the direction my body wants to go. It's the 'voice' I hear in the supermarket telling me that I 'deserve' some treats, and the voice I hear that tells me that snacking is good, and I can 'afford' to eat more.

I've actually read that the reason so many people regain lost weight is that losing weight is the only healthy thing that the body regards as a negative. It's a vestige of the olden days when losing weight meant famine and possible starvation, so the body tends to want to retain (or regain) its fat stores.

That's why for anyone like me who has been morbidly obese from early childhood, any form of 'intuitive eating' or HDE (hunger-directed eating) is futile. My body is telling me to feed it all sorts of 'treats' to pile on weight. I have experienced more 'false hunger' in maintenance than I ever did during the weight loss process. I'm sure it's hormonal, and it's the body's effort to regain that lost weight. To manage my weight, I have to thwart that desire, which means the opposite of 'intuitive eating.'

As has been mentioned, my goal is to feed it ONLY what it needs; not what it wants.

I avoid the supermarket. My DH is a life-saver, he does all the food shopping so I don't have to!!

Don't be so down on yourself, Peace. You ate too many veggies, could have been a piece a pie (me -- it would have been the WHOLE pie - but I have portion control issues... )

This LC WOE journey is like a science experiment with different variables, there's cause and effect and we work our way through each issue. But we do work through them to be successful and that's the most important part!

Jo= thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am trying to not beat myself up but seriously, I feel horrible today.. not mentally but more physically. I might have to go buy the other probiotic. Who knows, but something has to give. I am not happy feeling so stuffed.

You are amazing and an inspiration. I hope someday I can eat, enjoy food and not feel like a stuffed turkey. lol.

you think that salt can be a factor? I thought it was a good thing with low carb?

Anything could be a factor. Mine was salt because I ate too many pork rinds (love 'em) so I had to portion them out to no more than 2-3 oz a day. My DH measures them out for me and takes them away so I don't get tempted -- that's how bad my portion control issues are.

This is true. I think that salt can play a role.

could be a million other things that might not be related to food.

Do you keep a Food Log? Could also be hormonal... sometime it does NOT pay to be female... That's a discussion for another time...

Reverse dieting

once i reached my last goal via JUDDD, i "reverse" dieted, which i'd learned about on the JUDDD board. not counting JUDDD, it's the best diet decision i've ever made! worked like magic!

however, i was obese as a child, and eating intuitively would never ever work. i switched over to CAD, and it's been working great.

i throw in a down day if i end up eating too much or eating out of synch, and my weight stabilizes like magic. almost 3 months since hitting my goal. have lost 2 more pounds, even while maintaining, so i lowered my goal weight after my sagging face retracted a bit.

seriously, i hope everyone would consider reverse dieting. it really works wonders in people like me. (my body tends to lower its metabolism to accommodate a very low caloric intake.)

Why would you switch if you were doing so great on your previous diet? IMHO, it's hard on the metabolism to switch through different WOE. Or did you really consider it only a diet and not a WOE? Because that would explain a lot. A diet is something you do for a short period of time to reach a goal, a WOE is something you do to the grave...

when i was hard core dieting, every pound lost was like pulling teeth. i rarely ever lost more than 1 lb a week. for some reason, the combination of JUDDD/CAD is a miracle for me (i do both with calorie counting). i'm so thankful for this board, especially for the JUDDD board.

6/3 will be my third month maintaining. i've lost 3 more pounds, without intending to.

LOL at 3 more pounds w/o intending to -- LOVE it !! You rock!! Yep I'm at the maintenance adventure of my LC WOE. I lost 7 lbs more than I intended but I call 'em wiggle room so I can figure out my maintenance threshold and I think I have since I haven't lost a thing in 2 weeks. (1200-1400 kcals and 11-13 carbs daily)!!

Wishing all of us continued success on our personal LC WOE journeys!
