My Judd Info Thread!
I would like to start this thread with the intention of filling it with JUDDD related info! Snack/Meal ideas for DD, low cal food finds/reviews, articles, and my progress! :)
-I purposely slept in today (knowing it was a DD and sleeping puts off eating). I can do this because I'm a housewife. My job is to rear my young, keep up the house, feed my loved ones, and such... So I can make my own schedule.:p
-Like I said in another thread, I started on a DD day because 447 is something mentally easy for me to worry about.
-This as a binger comforts me some how.
-I have to figure out dinner for my guys tonight *hubby(35)son(11)*I'm thinking a boxed jumbalaya mix with chicken/shrimp protein combo.
-I've had a 100 cal bag of popcorn and 2 32 oz tumblers of iced water.
-I thought it was interesting to look through my pantry and see that 3 viennna sausages=100 cals. There are roughly 7 in the can.. I can't portion control that! LOL:laugh:
-I've also decided to do the Fast 5... Where I consume all my cals in 5 hours on my DD. I chose from 3-8pm, because thats when I noticed I started feeling hungry!
-I'm going to try and stay as sugar free as I can... Not nes. low carb, but I do find when I eat sweet stuff, I'm instantly transported into a binge fit.
-My DD cals will be dedicated to veggies (naturally low in cals) and snacky typed portions of food.
-Around 100 cals per DD meal. Roughly 4 and a half meals on a typical DD.
-I will most likely have a mini-meal once an hour during this period.
ANY advice would be GLADLY accepted! :love:

I will also research Hungry Girl and Ellie Krieger!
I've also noticed...
I'm not foggy/exhausted! With Induction it's brain fog city!
I feel good! :love:
Rebecca-- congrats on getting through your DD!
my one recommendation is to experiment. I found that I prefer some protein along with my veggies, though I do like veggies b/c I can fill up more and feel righteous :D.
The book (which I do recommend everyone read!) recommends veggies and lean meats.
I also bought an oil sprayer (or use pam) so that I can still do a stirfry and get a good browning effect. Fat also brings across some of the nutrients that otherwise your body can't use.
Anyway, some people do 4 meals, some do 10 mini (or "Barbie") meals of 50 cal each...
Some just have coffee and then 1 meal per day.
I think I've tried everything-- right now, I'm doing 1 protein shake diluted in water and sipped on most of the afternoon. Then 1 good meal.
Don't forget your vitamins-- you might find some that help with appetite, or mental clarity (this is why people are into the ptero stuff)... And a lot find that some caffeine in the morning (or whenever you can tolerate it) helps with both of the above as well.
And drink lots of water! :)
:kicking: keep on rocking!
I'm eating a veggie garden patty for 70 cals!
I think I will (at first) go through my large veggie meat stash! I have several diff types of veggie burgers, chicken patties, and sausage patties! Soo good! I'm tickled I found them =D
Thanks for the input Soren!! =)
So far today I've had....
One bag of Jolly Time 100 cal a bag popcorn (110)
1 morningstar veggie burger (100)
Slimfast Chocolate Royale Shake made with unsweetened coconut milk(190) (delish!)
I have an almost 50 cal discrepancy. Will I need to eat the 50 or can I just forget it?
PS My DD food choice WILL improve, but I recently cleaned my house out for induction and I don't have many low cal items. =D
You don't have to eat all your DD calories. Dr. Johnson said a full fast is ideal, but he doubted many people would do the EOD thus the DD calories.
Oh! Thank you! I sure you appreciate it!
My SF Milkshake was 155 not 190! So I'm at 365 cals today out of 447 intended.
What is JUDDD--?? Or, where can I go to learn/read about it? Thank you.
It's Johnson's Up Day Down Day Diet (JUDDD) it's intermittent fasting! You eat super low cals on down days(20 to 35% of recommended allowance) and then on up days you eat the recommended calories! Look up the the diet on google.
Find the calculator (fit for your body size/weight) and figure out your cal allowance. Come back and share! :)
I just had a bullion cube in boiling water with a tab of heavy cream. Ohhh man that is fantastic! 55 cals!
That brings my total to 415!
Great snack ideas! Thanks for sharing :-)
Day Two UD
I'm down 1 lb today! I do realize that it's water weight! Here's the thing... I had started gaining from a pretty bad cheat earlier in the week and now I'm down a lb! That matters to me, to my mental health! :o
So far today I've had 550 cals (Mandarin, and Chicken Vienna Sausages)
I'll say again, my food choices make no sense right now, because I cleared the house out of non-induction foods. So Friday I'm hoping to get some more normal stuff. :laugh:
My day was awesome! I did have a bit of a headache, but I'm not sure if it was caused by my restriction?! :dunno: I ate over my UD cals by 31 cals! I ate under my DD yesterday, so I'll pretend I ate 31 over on purpose. :) I can tell you that I accidentally ate 700 cals worth of COOKIES! I wish I was being cheeky and telling you are story... But I'm not! UGH I would've NEVER eaten that many cals of useless non-nutritive food. It was like I was on auto-pilot! My gay bestie (Tyler) and I are tv/food buddies. He bought the cookies the other day and and he cracked them open. Well I just started eating, happy as a clam.:eek: I ate 5 before I came to, and realized what I was doing!! UGH! Thank goodness I had all those cals to spare, but I sure did feel like a dummy! :o
I'm planning to have two "meals" today...
The one I'm REALLY looking forward to is my Slimfast shake!
I make it with the chocolate royale slim fast powder, unsweetened coconut milk, and ice in a blender. Well this time around (for 100 extra cals) I'm adding a tab of all natural peanut butter (no sugar added)! I realize it's a liquid meal, but I love it! This combo will equal 260 calories!
That leaves me with 187 cals..... I might have some tuna, or a piece of frozen fish.. Maybe some random crap in my pantry! hehehehe I dunno!
I'm also reading up on this "potato hack" thing. I don't understand it, but in my defense, I'm very new to JUDDD. Once I get a clue on this hack... I'll repost my ideas about it.:D;)
Before I get ready to finally go to sleep I am going to try and get 187 cals in! I'll be back around late after noon! Happy Eating!
Today was a WONDERFUL DD! I ate two things today for a total of 425!:sing:
I'm down three LBS in three days! :jumpjoy:
My menu for today:
-One container of Fage yogurt (with the little honey connected to it) BUT I hated the honey so much I ate the yogurt plain! I guess I should adjust for those cals I didn't eat, but I'm not THAT spastic about logging. I'll pretend I ate them! :hyst:
-I made another slimfast shake(110cals), coconut milk(45cals), and 1 tab of PB (110)... I LOVEEEEEEEE this shake! I think I'm going to shop around for a protein powder to use (for less calories)! :hiya:
Do any of you have a protein powder suggestion??:love:
I really like consuming my calories (on DD) by way of liquid! It's a no brainer to me.. It's like I can separate myself from food, because the delivery system is different. ;)
Thank you Kris!!! I try to be as positive as I can!!!
The boullion/cream is AAAAAAMMMMAAAZZZING it's so rich and creamy! After a hard day of starving(HAH) it's a warm, creamy, welcomed, break!
It's UD!!! WOot!
I finally get to have my homemade Chicken and Dumplings! I'm glad I had to wait, because they are better the longer they sit!
So far today I've had an everything bagel with light veggie cream cheese. It wasn't my ultimate choice for my breakfast, but I jumped out of bed forced to do unplanned errands.:stars: I was SO hungry, I was sick:sick:, and I had to go to the grocery store! I thought to myself, I could go to a bojangles, or mcdonalds for breakfast. I don't make solid choices there yet. So I went to the bagel place right next to the grocery. I'll tally the calories in a bit.
So lunch is dumplings and then for dinner my son and I will have wings (BuffaloWildWings). I hope I make a good decision there! I'll obviously plan before I go! :D
While at the grocery I picked up some more unsweetened coconut milk and yogurts for my DD. =D It's my fav combo right now. :jumpjoy:
Ohh! Also I'm down another lb! 4lbs in 4 days..............:love:
Cream Cheese, Light Garden Veggie
Chicken and Dumplings
Dinner: 1020 ********This might change! :D
Wrap, Buffalo Ranch Chicken
Ok Update on food! I went with the boneless chicken wings (I ate 5). They were disappointing. SUPER crusty and crunchy hardly any meat! Bleck! I DID have carrots with ranch! I enjoyed it better than the wings! The UPside to this whole fiasco is the fact it cut the cals I ate Substantially! =)
I love the ranch at BWW- usually more than the wings. I always get extra ranch to take home and use for dip for the next few days. I love celery (I know- that sounds ridiculous- but I do.) I even eat celery on UDs so I can use the ranch from BWW.
