I am so full of hope that this will work for me. I really hope it does! Looking forward to getting to know you all better here
! I agree that this WOE is most definitely health giving. I find that my inflammation is so much less than it was before. Facial redness, allergy symptoms, itchy skin - all gone or much reduced! It took me a long time doing this before I told anyone but my immediate family what I was doing, and you really don't need to. It's easy to keep it private if you want to.

To tell you the truth, this sounds almost too good to be true! I am post-menopausal and every pound is a battle!!! I gain so easily and lose with much difficulty! Really jazzed to start this tomorrow, even though I haven't read the book! You all have posted so much info, I feel like I can start now!!!

Thanks so much and looking forward to getting to know you! :-)

! The most wonderful thing is, it may seem too good to be true, but somehow....it IS true! I bet you'll find JUDDD to be so much more satisfying than the shakes and LC. Congrats on your first 3.6 pounds - it's a great start. And now you can let JUDDD take you the rest of the way.

One doctor has said she thinks I might even have fibromyalgia because of the all-over joint, bone and muscle pain. But shortly after starting JUDDD, I noticed a real reduction in pain, and that I was taking far less prescription hydrocodone, and soon I was off hydrocodone altogether and had much reduced the OTC meds. Then I took a road trip, ignored the diet, and couldn't manage to get back on it for a couple of weeks after I got home, and the arthritis came back big time. Back to taking hydrocodone. This week I'm back to doing regular down days, and already I'm back off the prescription stuff and taking fewer and milder OTC painkillers.

Long story, but the point is, SOMETHING about JUDDD is really, really good for people. You are probably right about not telling everyone so you won't have to argue, but some people are receptive. My sister was willing to try it when she saw me losing, and now she's shedding weight she just could not take off before. Like me, it took her a while to start losing, and we lost slowly at first, but JUDDD works for both of us when nothing else did. You have come to the right place, and everyone here is pulling for you. JUDDD really can change your life.

BTW, I take thyroid meds too. Seems like JUDDD can even work around a thyroid problem.
Such great results! I'm so glad you shared your experiences here. If those aren't reasons enough to give JUDDD a try, I don't know what is!

Thanks so much for the encouragement Beadelia! The more I hear about this diet and do it for myself, the more reassured I am that this is a good WOE. These stories of JUDDD relieving people of pain and helping in so many health areas really is eye opening...and I'm so happy to be trying this out for myself. And despite my thyroid issue, the scale is indeed down today! I expect that the more declines I see on the scale as the weeks and months go on, the more reassured I will be. For now I must say I am feeling optimistic and really want to see this WOE through for myself

Thanks for the welcome too! That is fantastic hearing about the decline in your inflammation and allergy symptoms, etc. The more I hear, the more excited I am about this WOE.

My plan it to keep this WOE private from family until I'm at goal. I have found too much negativity in the past when I've tried to lose weight, and it can take so long to emotionally recover from verbal sparring over diet. I am happy to share once I'm at or near goal, but right now I feel it would help me most to keep on the JUDDD path and learn all I can about this WOE. I am so thankful for just how private this diet can be!!! And even happier that I've found this group, so I can always connect and reach out to other JUDDDers

Welcome, Babyweigbtbgone!

I fully understand your decision to keep mum about JUDD. Even my super supportive fiance rolled his eyes last Friday and said it was annoying that I didn't want to go out for pizza. That really stung, and I know he thinks this just another desperate thing I'm trying that I'll just give up on in a few more days. So, I really get it. That's why I'm very glad to have found this board.

Wow! To find a group that is so relatable! Honestly! I have tried so many diets that I feel like people just roll their eyes and say: "Well, how long will she stick with this one?" Sometimes it's hard to find what works - at least we haven't totally given up, right?! I so hope this is my LAST diet! (That will mean it worked or I'm dead!)

Wooo Hoooo! You're on your way!

Everyone, isn't it amazing how the very people who are most likely to make unkind remarks about our weight are the first to discourage our efforts to take it off? Go figure.

Cacountrymom, from the stats in your profile, you've already succeeded at weight loss! 70-some pounds is really fantastic.

totah! Of course we'll accept you! we love new friends around here and there's a lot of joy and support since we're all going through the same things. Jump right on in to the other JUDDD threads, read as much as you can, and ask any questions that you have. Good luck!

Tota: Ask away! We love Newbies There are a lot of threads at the top that give basic details of the JUDDD plan.

It's pretty simple. Go to the on line calculator. Enter your height, weight and age. Then click on "calculate" at the 20% value. Most of us choose the no exercise option even if we exercise because it doesn't make sense to eat back exercise calories when you are in weight loss mode.

You will get your DD/UD numbers.

Then, basically you are only dieting half the time. On down days, stick to 500 calories the first two weeks if you can.

The first two weeks are very important because on the down days your body is activating a repair gene known as SIRT1. It stimulates sirtuin enzymes which will flow through your body doing all kinds of healing and setting you up to burn fat and release stored fat.

Some people start losing right away, others might not lose much the first couple of weeks. It depends on your body.

My advice is to read as much as you possibly can on this forum and ask lots of questions! Some of us found it helpful to read Dr. Johnson's book, others didn't need to.

I also like Michael Mosley's book, "The FastDiet" and am re-reading it right now for motivation.

Good luck! and !!!!

Welcome Totah and all Newbies,

I'm fairly new myself, since April 7, and am SO glad I came! I think I have flunked every diet out there, some, like WW, several times, but this works. It's working for my sister, too, and we've both reached that age where it's three times as hard to take off weight. (It sure comes on easily, though.) Yam-Yam has given you an excellent rundown of the program, so I'll only add a few things. As Yam-Yam said, you may lose little or nothing at first (my case) but hang in there while your body adjusts. Second, you may find Up Days harder to manage than Down Days, oddly enough, because it's easy to turn being able to eat anything you want into feeling like you must eat everything you want. If you don't lose after a few weeks, try counting up day calories as carefully as you do down day calories. (And remember, whatever the treat you crave is, the world supply is not going to dry up before the day after tomorrow.) And third, while, as one JUDDDster said, JUDDD doesn't care what foods you eat to get your calories, but your body might. In my own case, it is better to avoid sugar for the most part, saving it for special occasions or eating out. I just feel better and lose better if I do, so I'm finding other special treats, like a creamy latte or a bowl of fresh strawberries, to have on up days. I'm still learning to manage this, but JUDDD is very forgiving when I fall on my face and have to correct myself.

Happy JUDDDing, and welcome all.

Hello everyone. I just registered the other day after seeing this JUDD thing for the very first time. I did start a journal on this site, hoping it will help. This is my fifth day. I have broken a two year stall. I am sold. After two up days and two down days, I have lost 3.5 pounds. YEAH. I am very excited about my future with this WOE.

Good luck! This is only my 7th day, and I love it. I think knowing I won't be starving the next day, makes the down days easier. Hope you have a lovely day.

Thank you so much! I don't expect to keep losing at this rate, but I feel wonderful and I am just so ecstatic that I can actually loose this weight. I have a long way to go, but this time next year, I will see a huge difference.

Hope you have a lovely day!

Hi Totah! Of course, ask any question any time and any where on this forum. Or even start a new thread if you need more answers.

I'm pretty tall and at my goal weight my DD calories would be 350 if I still want to be in WLM.

Dr. J suggests starting out at 500 calories for the first two weeks no matter what the calculator says. The point at the beginning is to get the SIRT1 genes activated and two weeks of good down days should do that.

Many JUDDDers couldn't even handle the restriction of 500 calories at the beginning, so they started at 800 calories. And, of those, some found they were losing just fine at 800 on a DD so never went lower. YMMV and the only way to know is to dive in and start somewhere.

Some believe that it's important to have a big swing in calories from the DD to the UD. I've even read that some think a minimum of 1000 calories between DD/UD works best. Again, everyone is an individual and what works great for one may be different for others.

When I re-started JUDDD in January of this year, my focus was all about the DDs. My goal was to keep them as low as possible. For the first 2 weeks I counted calories on my UDs and didn't freak out if I was a bit below or above. Mostly I was trying to follow my hunger on UDs and trying not to stimulate my appetite on DDs.

After a couple of weeks I quit counting on UDs because I have a pretty good idea of when I've reached my limit. Sometimes I count loosely on UDs (entering food on my on line calorie counter).

But something I've discovered this time about myself is that if I start eating early in the day, I get hungrier and seem to want to eat all day.

So, on DDs I go as long as possible without eating (I do have HWC or half and half in my morning coffee. Not gonna give that up! But from what I understand, calories from fat don't break a fast).

On UDs I usually don't wake up hungry at all. So, I've begun waiting until I'm hungry or until I have a luncheon engagement or something like that. Or, if we go to my favorite restaurant where they serve fabulous eggs benedict for brunch, I'll have it so I don't feel deprived or like I'm missing out.

My advice for you is to focus on DDs more than UDs for the first two weeks. Start out at 500 or 600 or 700 or whatever you can live with so you enjoy your WOE and don't feel like you are suffering.

You can always work your way down to the 333 calories after two weeks if you are not losing anything at all and see if it starts to make a difference.

I find, and I've heard many others say they do too, that DDs are very peaceful and relaxing. It's a time to not stress out over food choices. Just keep it simple.

The money I save on not buying all the groceries I used to is a great motivator. Getting projects done I've been putting off or spending lots of time here with the JUDDD Budds is also motivating.

Along with the peace and calm and lack of stress, I often feel bursts of energy and get ideas for problem solving that I don't have other times.

Today is a DD for me and I actually did a handyman project that involved an electric drill, hammer, screws, wrenches!!! It was broken outdoor Teak wood chaise lounge chairs. They are big, heavy, expensive and old. I could never figure out how to fix them until this morning! And now they are fixed!

Go figure, I chose a day where our temperatures rose to over 100 degrees and did it in the hot sun! There was a lot of sweating involved, but I am so happy with myself and have a sense of accomplishment! The credit goes to JUDDD! ha!

By the way, Totah: Is 10 kilos the equivalent of 22 pounds? You are so close to goal!

So Friday was an UD, Saturday DD, Sunday UD, and my "plan" was for today (Monday) to be an UD...but I didn't want it!

I'm having a lot of fun with JUDDD this time around. In the past I have really struggled with hunger on DDs and couldn't stick to my calories even if I went up to 50%. I have a lot of energy and have even been cleaning and exercising a little bit!

totah, Yam-Yam has you well covered in good info. I'll just add that 333 calories can be quite challenging, but it is possible to do. But if you're losing at an acceptable rate with higher DD calories, then don't worry about getting that low, or getting there every DD.

That is wonderful. That would be a plus for me if I could get more cleaning done.
