I am newish to the plan
I dont own the book but all the information you need for the plan is on the website - the book I think is just a lovely extra and explains in more detail
Hope this is the one???
Hi, I am Sooz,
I am 44 and have been trying to lose weight since puberty . I am now within 7 pds of my highest weight at 217.2 and not happy or comfortable with it. I have tired every diet you can think of from Atkins, low carb, cabbage soup, rice diet , low cal, etc... I saw the Johnson diet on this forum and it looks like something I can do, but the question is will it work for me? I have a slow metabolism and taking weight off is next to impossibe but gaining it is like breathing!Right now I am doing a week of the cabbage soup diet and then next Monday the 26th I will start Judding. Wish me luck and any advice is appreciated.
my advice is stop the cabbage soup diet NOW it will destroy your metabolism
in fact years of on off dieting to such extremes has most likely done that already
with the cs diet all you lose is fluid and will put that straight back on when you start Juddd and so be disappointed
start Juddd as soon as you feel able and then give it 4 weeks to see if it works for you
you need to rev up your metabolism before any diet will be able to show what it can do for you
I am on so many meds even my doctor said losing weight will be very difficult for me - if you have a slow metabolism that is not a natural state it is usually due to poor past dieting or medication issues
so put away the cabbage and start Judding as soon as poss
having the cabbage soup on DD would be good as it is very low in cals and on those days you need to be 500 or less
Yes I agree with Aaleigha, don't do the cabbage soup diet, it doesn't work, my mum tried it a few years ago and lost, but it all went on just as quick as like aaleigha said it was fluid. Plus it made here feel really ill!
But yes the cabbage soup would be great for as down day, if you actually like it. Or make some other low cal soup Soup is great for down days.
Give juddd a good go, sure it may surprise you Good luck hun x
Thanks for your advice, I think I will do that.
Oh that is the best decision you have made
welcome to the wonderful world of JUDDD you will love it
but do remember you need to give your body to stabilize on this plan - so promise yourself to give it your very best shot for one month and I am sure you will be very pleased with the results
Yes welcome to juddd Sooz and good luck with it. we're all here for you xx
ive decided to restart (im a better frame of mind and only stuck to it one day!) so hi everyone and heres to losing those pounds
stirky, youve given me the inspiration to try again

Working to Maintain a Large Weight-Loss
For the past 4 years I have been working to maintain a large weight-loss.
My signature contains a graphic that shows my Weight Maintenance Plan.
17 years ago I was at my all-time high of 271 lbs when I had open RNY gastric bypass surgery, with no shortening of the intestines which means that all of my food intake continues to be digested...and every calorie counts. Within a year of that surgery, I lost down to 160 lbs, and maintained in the 160s for several years, but then the weight began creeping up and up. When I weighed in the 190 lb range, I realized that if I continued to eat as much as my body allowed, I would return to my high weight again and perhaps beyound. This is when I began to seriously diet again.
I found a computer software journeling program in which I began logging all my food intake every day. This program also gave me the calorie counts of the food. Over about a 16 month period of averaging about 1250 calories a day, I lost an average of about 1 lb per week to reach my ultimate goal of 115 lbs. Since that time I've been working to maintain in an area around my goal weight.
About 3 years ago I first learned about the alternate day plans of JUDDD and QOD, and off and on I have used them to help in this process. Right now I need to drop weight to get back into the blue area of my Maintenance Weight Range. Therefore, this morning I am again starting a JUDDD plan. I find the down days tough, and I welcome all of your support.
Hi Brightangel and welcome. Wow thats alot of weight lost, congratulations
Hi Brightangel, just said welcome in the other thread but will say it again, welcome to the juddd board!! Wow, your loss and maintenance really is impressive, well done you esp maintaining for so long. THat really is inspiring to all of us. Good luck this time round, sure you'll be back at your goal in no time
Hey there just wanted to introduce myself, I've been on slimfast for several months but have hit a plateau so figured I'd follow Stirky's lead and give JUDDD a go.
I'm doing things a bit differently as I'm doing up day (2000), down day (500), medium day (1200) as I find eating all the calories on an upday really hard! I figure its the variation which is important. So I'd like to keep a diary on this forum as I'm no longer following slimfast completely plus you all seem like a really nice bunch!
