Debridgers' JUDDDering diary & Ramblings
Hi everyone, I'm new to this type of food plan,
I am currently following Slimming World, and happily plodding along - 18lbs in the last 13 weeks.... not huge, but certainly acceptable.
However, like many, I have been interested in intermediate fasting days since watching a Horizon programme, have done a little more research, and like the health benefits associated with it.. losing weight too is an added bonus
So, I've decided to do a JUDDD/SW combo..... follow the principles of SW, i.e healthy, home cooked fresh foods, increased fruit & veg and less rubbish, but also including fasting days too.
I feel, that if I can manage this it will be the best of both worlds, of course, none of us are and I'm sure I'll struggle at times, so
fingers crossed, working the 2 together will get the results I'm after.... yes, I want to lose weight, but I want to be healthier too
I've decided, if I can, to fast on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Sundays, and will try to avoid food in that 24hour period, just keep my fluids up
of course, I know that I could do the 500cals, but will see if that's necessary or not.
The other days, I'll follow SWish.. and drink at the weekends, but will eat plenty of good, fresh food, with maybe a few treats thrown in
I'm aware that there may not be any drop on the scales to start with, so I'm not starting with unrealistic expectations..... of course, this experiment may not work, but, I can only give it a go.
I will WI on a Thursday evening with SW (have paid in advance for 3 months)
Thanks for reading
Sun 11Nov - DD
water, black coffee. herbal tea
Good luck you are brave to start on fluids only ! I needed every last one of thos 500 cals when i started. I can now go longer without anything (only had fluid so far today ) but will just have the cals later
Thanks, well, I must admit, we didn't get up until nearly lunchtime anyway yesterday, as we'd had a late night, and I didn't find it a problem, however, tomorrow at work will be the test!!! I will leave a couple of things in my drawer just in case.
I do sometimes eat really late in the day if I don't know what I want, or if I'm busy & forget - so hopefully it'll be fine
I'm a fellow SW/JUDDDer I'm going try 24 hour fasts too after my weigh-in this Wednesday following Hannah's Way. It's 5pm to 5pm so you get to eat every day. Check it out...it might be easier than having one whole day just having fluids. Back in my eating disorder days a few years ago now I water fasted a lot and it was horrible!
Hi FF, blimey you're doing well, just looked at your signature... that's great, how long have you been combining the 2? and did you find that you put on to start with?
Yes, I've looked at Hannahs... I'm going to see how I get on, as I say, yesterday was fine, but tomorrow will tell!!
With JUDDD it's been about 5 or 6 weeks now? I was actually really excited about it. I find I do have more syns than I used to but I feel the health benefits of it! I still generally stay under my 105 a week.
If you have or decide to go on myfitnesspal, add me on there...the link is under my name on here and you can see what I eat <3
Hi FF, I did look at mfp, but thought it didn't have enough stored stuff on it, but will take another look soon
Seen another app 'my net diary' that has a fair bit added, but at the mo, was gonna follow SW on UD and not count, and if I can, try non foodstuffs on DD, so would be well under cals anyway - just have to see - but thanks for the info
Mon 12 Nov - UD
Was a bit strange, decided to have something a little more substantial for breakfast, normally only have fruit, but struggled with it, I thought I'd be really hungry, but wasn't ? I did eat it all though
Actually not sure that I've eaten enough today, although I've had sufficient
Returned home from work a few hours later than normal, so was a quick, easy, light dinner.
Breakfast: 2 weetabix, semi-skimmed milk
Lunch: rollmops & sardines in tomato sauce with salad //small fruit salad
Dinner: boiled rice & tin of ratatouille, small glass semi-skimmed milk
Have drunk black coffee, water, herbal teas & diet coke
I haven't found much of a problem with myfitnessapp! The most I've loads of it is a couple of foods and some recipes with the stuff that's already on there. It's pretty full.
I find on my UD's I don't feel the need to eat as much as I thought I would either. You get used to it
Here to follow and support xx
Hi FF , have taken another look at mfp - reckon I must be a wally lol, seems to be a lot better than I realised!!! Only using on phone at the moment, but have it if I need it - cheers
Thanks, I'm sure I'll get used to mixing between UD & DD, was just a tad surprised at my lack of hunger lol, guess that can only be good in the long run
Well, was my 2nd DD today, was a little concerned that being at work it would be more difficult, but actually, was pretty ok, and got around it quite well, I did have a mug shot in my bag if necessary, well, it's still there
Just got into bed and am feeling fine, and it's been a really long day.....left home just before 7, got in around 8, and managed the not eating questions well
New Manager was in, wanted to take us for lunch.... I told them I had a meeting at 1 so couldn't go - was true, I did, went to the canteen at 12, and when asked why I wasn't eating, I did lie.....tut..tut, explained I'd had a large breakfast, and was out to dinner tonight and didn't want to spoil my appetite, I hate lying, but didn't want all the you shouldn't be doing this, that & the other, so thought it easier
So today's DD was:
Water, black coffee & diet coke
Onwards & downwards fir a healthy Deb
