24 or 36 hour down day?

I'm kind of confused as of to how the time frame works I'm assuming if Monday is your down day then your not eating until Wednesday? Is that correct? And your just having 500 calories for the 36 hours? Trying to get this all figured out before I start.

Most DDs last about 36 hours. If, for example, Sunday is your UD, you eat your last meal (I'm assuming) somewhere around 6-7pm. When you eat your last, that's when the DD officially starts. So through the rest of that evening, while you sleep, all of Monday and then while you sleep Monday night, you're on your DD. When you wake up Tuesday morning and start eating again on your Tuesday UD, your Monday DD is over. So for most people, depending on when they stop eating Sunday night and start eating Tuesday morning, their DD lasts somewhere between 30-45 hours.
There are a couple threads about when to break your fast that talk more about this. I'd suggest reading through the stickies, and go back 4-5 pages of threads. This is a really busy board, so threads with important info get buried fast. Read through the monthly newbie threads too, many of the newbie questions are similar and there are great answers in there that can't always be reproduced.

Thank you! I was just going through the stickies and saw the part on there about 36 hours. I'm sure I still have more to read.

Great response, Jen.

CG, I encourage you to read, read and read some more on these threads, and go back as far as you can, when time allows. In my first several months, reading all the threads and posts gave me so much inspiration and motivation to make this work.
