I am so happy to find a JUDDD forum. I have looked into this plan and ''finally'' decided to start today!
starting with a down day. have my meals planned.
When I plugged in my numbers at Dr. Js sight, it was 398 down day, 1965 up day.
So the first 2 weeks I am doing 500 down, and staying around 1800 up.
then after the 2 weeks I will shoot for lower down days and hover in the 18-1900 up days.
my journey was atkins. but the severe limited foods was driving me crazy. every time I tried to introduce some new foods I stalled or gained. As long as I stayed to extremely low carb and more toward protein I would lose. while not hungry, the variety was mind-numbing.
I have lost 32 lbs on atkins and think it has run its course for me.
I checked into JUDDD and see that having a day to eat my types of foods in moderation might be the better way to go giving me a calorie deficit on the down days so I can lose.
there are days I go without eating easily so I think the down day should be ok as long as I plan for the meals.
I am thrilled to find somewhere to chat and to mark my progress on JUDDD. I am actually excited to start this day
Any and all advice on how to tweak this to work for me is appreciated so don't be shy in typing out your JUDDD comments to me. THANKS
