I think a few "pig out" days in the beginning are normal, esp if someone is switching from LC.

The idea of eating without counting calories may work for people who maintain their weight easily, without gaining, when they eat according to their appetite. For people whose appetite doesn't really match their needs, counting calories may be helpful.

The scale may show a big bounce upward tomorrow; be prepared! But it will probably go down after your next DD.

Eating a lot on UDs can either keep your metabolism roaring, and you'll be able to eat more in maintenance (more than if you'd lost using another plan), OR it could slow your weight loss. Everyone's different! Good luck and YAY on your great start!
