It is so unbelievably freeing to eat what I want, when I want. My DD's are LC/HF for the satiety it provides me, but other than that, I set no rules. Today I am enjoying a veg day. My next UD I might fancy a heavy meat meal. Who knows. And that is truly wonderful. I am finding JUDDD to be a beautiful way of life and eating.


It seems odd that I used to be so carb phobic, while now, I'm still watching them closely, but not getting hung up anymore!

I know it's been mentioned many times. but i just wanted to reiterate it has shaped the way i look and think about food. I can sit all day surrounded by food (literally) since my office is stocked full of oreos and cookies and sugar and i am surrounded by the JUDDD calm and don't even feel tempted on DD's. It's great.

One surprising benefit for me (and this is only one week in) has been that this WOE appears to eliminate my chronic and painful acid reflux. Usually, the only thing that works to get me off the antacids is cutting my carbs way down, but with this plan I've been eating quite a lot of carbs on UDs and still not having reflux. I'm wondering whether giving my stomach a break with the 16-hour fast on a DD is helping to 'reset' the acid production to normal levels... either way, it's a huge relief not to feel that constant burning sensation!

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!

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

That is huge. I wonder how many others have had this benefit? So much better than the drug alternative.

My acid reflux got much worse. I doubled my medication, did an internet search on what not to eat, added more protein, and voila - it's much better. I think (and hope) you're right about DDs resetting acid production. Thanks for posting this.

Something is changing in me. I can't get a handle on it enough to be able to describe it.
That will come.
I just know that something is changing. I lost really quickly during the first 10 days. Since then I am 188 after a DD and 188.6 after an UP. This has been consistent for a whole week.
I haven't had a rabid need to adjust anything or panic.
I just keep doing the rotations and trusting.
I (absofrickinglutely) have not had binge urges for 6 full days. NONE. I have no burning desire to go get ice cream or mac n cheese or................(just fill in the blank).
I am not sure why I am calm about this right now.
I am keeping in mind that I have had several weeks of very few outside my home obligations and that I may face some issues when I have to begin interacting more w/ others and eating situations. I am calm about that, too.
I am 66 yrs old. This has never happened to me before. Ever. Even during the years I stayed at my 'fighting weight' it was always panic and white knuckle. Always.
Could it be possible that in my later years I will for the first time be able to be peaceful with my body and food? At age 12 I was aware of being too big. I've carried that story with me and been at war with myself ever since.
Could it be?
I am prayerfully thankful for the Grace that lead me back here and for the JBs who post here and give me hope.
Amen.

YES IT CAN!!! I know exactly what you mean, and for me, Juddd has indeed allowed that peaceful feeling and confidence that you can live this way indefinitely. XO

RE: GERD issues. I have had this since I was 16yo. I'm still on nexium & zantac, but the GERD is certainly much improved. I'm happy to hear others are feeling a lot of relief!

Hmmmmmmm.... could it be that JUDDD calm? The JUDDD magic setting in? I know there are some who are skeptical about the "Rescue Gene", SIRT1. But I'm a big believer in it after searching all over the Internet and reading books and studies. I think JUDDD may well be labeled the "Happy Diet".

Reading Frosty's thread reminded me that there are a lot of diet boards full of judgemental, critical, unhappy people.

Why is it that the JUDDD forum is full of positive, supportive, non-judgemental, forgiving posts?

I think part of it is the flexibility and success of this woe. But, also, I sincerely believe there is a basic change at the cellular level that is happening.

Recent articles I've read about sirtuin activation are featuring studies about improvements in cognitive function and even prevention of dementia and related neurological diseases.

Seems like better cognitive function means better outlook on life.

Just sayin'!! I'm a believer.

Pat, this was so heart-warming to read today.

I feel the same way Yam does about this. I'm not going to over-think it........just be grateful I found it when I did.

I truly do feel blessed because of it.

It's so good to read of your positive early experience of JUDDD - long may it continue up until and beyond when you become a maintainer.

I love coming here to read. After 10 days away it is a joy to see everyones successes, both physical and mental.

I have an NSV relating to the JUDDD calm too. It seems Ailuros started a trend, but I came here with the intention of posting this.

So, 9 days on a cruise ship around the Norwegian coast. Wonderful. 10 days of buffets of glorious food and evenings with a set 3 course dinner. I was on vacation and I was not rotating. I ate just what I wanted.

2 slices of toast in the morning, a boiled egg on a couple of occasions.

Lunch of smoked salmon or cold meats of sometimes a mixture, salads (dressed) and some good bread. One scoop of ice cream one day, some fresh pineapple on a couple.

Dinner, whatever we were served, including the puddings.

Not once did I worry about the calories or carbs. I was eating like a normal person. Me. Yes, at 66, the miracle can happen.

Kissa, loved reading your NSV! Wouldn't it be a tragedy to have missed all that lovely food or felt guilty every time you took a bite? We can be free from that nonsense now. Hallelujah! (that's me singing the Hallelujah Chorus!!)

I think with JUDDD we can get so much closer to feeling "normal" about food than any other WOE I've tried. This is lovely!

JUDDD calm is a wonderful thing. It's not an emergency when you know you can have anything you want....tomorrow.

I'm wondering whether giving my stomach a break with the 16-hour fast on a DD is helping to 'reset' the acid production to normal levels... either way, it's a huge relief not to feel that constant burning sensation!
This is great! There's so much healing that goes on with JUDDD.

Oh, CJ, I'm sorry to hear that! But you've figured out a solution and made it work for you!

That will come.
I just know that something is changing. I lost really quickly during the first 10 days. Since then I am 188 after a DD and 188.6 after an UP. This has been consistent for a whole week.
I haven't had a rabid need to adjust anything or panic.
I just keep doing the rotations and trusting.
I (absofrickinglutely) have not had binge urges for 6 full days. NONE. I have no burning desire to go get ice cream or mac n cheese or................(just fill in the blank).
I am not sure why I am calm about this right now.
I am keeping in mind that I have had several weeks of very few outside my home obligations and that I may face some issues when I have to begin interacting more w/ others and eating situations. I am calm about that, too.
I am 66 yrs old. This has never happened to me before. Ever. Even during the years I stayed at my 'fighting weight' it was always panic and white knuckle. Always.
Could it be possible that in my later years I will for the first time be able to be peaceful with my body and food? At age 12 I was aware of being too big. I've carried that story with me and been at war with myself ever since.
Could it be?
I am prayerfully thankful for the Grace that lead me back here and for the JBs who post here and give me hope.
Amen.
Pat, you always put things like this so eloquently. I'm so glad you can feel this all happening. And that you're back with us!

I have an NSV relating to the JUDDD calm too. It seems Ailuros started a trend, but I came here with the intention of posting this.

So, 9 days on a cruise ship around the Norwegian coast. Wonderful. 10 days of buffets of glorious food and evenings with a set 3 course dinner. I was on vacation and I was not rotating. I ate just what I wanted.

2 slices of toast in the morning, a boiled egg on a couple of occasions.

Lunch of smoked salmon or cold meats of sometimes a mixture, salads (dressed) and some good bread. One scoop of ice cream one day, some fresh pineapple on a couple.

Dinner, whatever we were served, including the puddings.

Not once did I worry about the calories or carbs. I was eating like a normal person. Me. Yes, at 66, the miracle can happen.
So inspiring, Cindy! To be able to live the wonderful, active life you have and not have to stress about food and eating all the time. Absolutely miraculous!

So happy for you.

Not my NSV, but DH's. We were at Costco yesterday and he found some Lucky jeans. The most recent jeans he bought were size 38, so he grabbed a pair of the Lucky's in 38. The price was FANTASTIC! So he got home and tried them on. The waist is perfect, but they're a tiny bit baggy everywhere else! (Before his surgery, he was in size 58 jeans.)
