Do you ever have brain fog on DDs?

It's 2:45 here and I swear I could not remember what I had for lunch 3 hours earlier. I thought long and hard about it, too. Luckily I had put it in ************. Oh yeaaaah, my homemade chicken vegetable soup I had retrieved from my freezer and microwaved the heck out of it I'm now remembering how good it tasted, too.

I'm also a lousy poster on DD. It takes me forever to type a post and I mistype all sorts of words. Thank goodness for those little red squiggly lines underneath to alert me.

Some people feel calm and alert on DD. I feel calm but ditzy and scattered!

Am I the only one?

I think I felt this way for weeks when I first started, but now I'm clearer... except everytime around TOM and then the hunger is harder to take and I get more irritable and muddy-thinking.

All the time!! Today I was trying to move the cursor on my computer to the button to turn the computer off!

The button is ON the computer case, NOT on the screen and I couldn't figure out why the cursor kept disappearing off the screen and not going to the button!!!!

Yes! That is something I would do in one of my not so bright moments.

Luckily I don't get irritable very often. I'm usually happy as a clam.

Some days are like that for me, but only when I don't *eat* lunch. If I only do liquids, then it's hard to concentrate at work by about 2:30 or so. On a couple of occasions lately I have gotten that energy rush, but usually it's just a jittery, I gotta eat feeling.

I have had some brain fog lately. Kinda scary cause its like my brain just turns off. Its almost like I can physically "feel" it. I have shaken my head to try and clear the fogginess. Ok when lounging at home. Not ok when trying to talk to customers at work. Or book parties!! I hope this passes soon. I am going to try and start taking my vitamins again soon. Hard on DD I get so nauseous.

Around here birds are doing elaborate dances, flowers are blooming, the trees have begun their yearly orgy, and I am using a box of tissues a day and have pretty much sneezed off what remains of my brains out. THAT makes me very foggy.

Any chance what you are experiencing is (early) seasonal allergy?

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

Around TOM, I find I need to eat 600-700 calories on Down Days, or I fall into a funk. I just don't want to do anything, and often just go to bed an hour or so earlier than usual. This happened especially when I was first starting JUDDD, and on the few times I've tried consciously to eat lower than 400 calories on DDs.

But most DDs I am just fine, especially if I'm eating my full 500 - 600 calories.

I'm pretty alert on DDs, but I've been doing this for quite awhile. I usually keep myself busy and get quite a bit done around here.

I was fine for a while. Im hoping it is because TOM is close. Yesterday was an UD and I had the fogginess for a little while too?? I guess i'll have to wait and see.

Hi,

I recently went from Atkins to trying JUDDD (about 3 weeks ago) and I do find that one of the problems I have is that because of 'brain fog', I can't remember how many calories I've eaten by the end of the DD, although I can usually work it out if I sit down and think about it.

I have been having trouble focusing and losing track of my point in the middle of a sentence- while talking to people!

Also, can't remember simple sayings like... "payback's a b*" weird stuff...

I do on some and on some I'm perfectly fine. Today has been a tough one. I'm extra hungry, irritable, shaky, brain fog, everything. I think TOM is close. There just isn't enough real time between TOM and no time. Its like I only have about a week, maybe two, if I'm lucky, that I feel normal. I hate that!
