Oooooh anything you like really, its all trial and error, some like diet shakes some eat lots of low cals foods, like veg, yogs, fruits etc, you may find eating more often easier or you may find waiting till later in the day helps. You really can have what you like as long as its within limits x
I usually find meal replacement shakes are good for me... When I start eating food I find the mental hunger triggers. But everyone's different.
Stuff like lowfat yoghurts, porridge, non sugar cereals (think plain bran, rice crispies, all bran), fully skimmed milk, ryvita, slim a soups, salad, veg, lean protein, sugar free jelly are good... Try to look out for anything that's below 100 calories when shopping, that kind of stuff is handy to have around for DD.
Oh and sugar free fizzy is a godsend when you're hungry.
i think its simply cause a lot of carby foods are high in calories, and when you've got 500 its more value for cals to eat veg & lean protein =) xx

Hi, I've been lurking on here since watching that Horizon programme about fasting last week. Today is my second fast day (first was Wednesday), sticking to 500 cals, which I had in a single meal at lunchtime - not quite JUDDD, as I had two UD's together. Can I just ask:
1) do people following JUDDD literally do alternate UD/DD's? It would seem not, as I've seen people talking about doing DD's on Mon/Wed/Fri.
2) Those of you who are at the weight you want and maintaining - how many DD's do you do per week, and how many cals do you have?
I guess it's the kind if thing that you can take a break from (if you want to) when you go on holiday, and then come back to again...
Hi Barbara and welcome, you can do UP/DD strictly alternate if you want to or you can have a break and do 2 UPs together, I personally do set MWF as DD and the ret UP which of course means Sat and Sun are UPs, 2 UPs together are perfectly acceptable 2 DD s on Juddd is not recommended as you are trying to train your body not to go into starvation mode.

Thank you, that's broadly what I thought but it's good to have it confirmed.
I set at out the start of this year to get control of my weight once and for all, because it was diminishing my quality of life so much it had become intolerable. But with a long history of yo-yo dieting followed by regain with a vengeance, I knew I needed a permanent lifestyle change, and that's really what I've been working on. Finding slimpods made it a lot easier as they have dealt with my cravings and pretty much stopped me binge eating. Weight loss has been steady, but of course not as quick now as at the start, so it's good to have another tool in the box. When I get to a comfortable weight I'm going to stay there for ever - and I daresay a fast day or two a week will help.
Hi everyone, thank you for those of you that have made me welcome already, and to those I am yet to *meet* Hello! I've a veteran on minimins but new to JUDDD so my diary is in the silver section (link on my signature). So I have a question for you experts. Do I need to count Gaviscon Liquid on my down days? I had a couple of glugs on yesterday down day and I am worried about the calorie value and if I should have counted it.
How many calories does a dose contain? I have tried and failed to find a value for it? I wouldn't think it would contain enough to ruin your day though x
I cant find the values anywhere on the net, and the bottle is little help either. I guess I am just worried that it is quite thick and reasonably sugary I would think. Shall I just forget it and see how the first week pans out? I dont take it often but yesterday was one of those days when I couldnt have done without.
I appreciate your help, and watch this space for results!
Well lets see... a teaspoon of sugar is about 15 cals, so if you really wanted to count it go for that? It can't be anymore than that =)
