    Hi all, I've been lurking around here for a while, reading others diaries looked up judd and intermittent fasting etc and am going to give it a go.

    I followed s&s at the beginning of last year I lost almost 3 stone but have gained 2stone back whilst faffing around and trying to get back on track!

    I've been trying to get back on with s&s for the past few months but just can't get past day 3 then because I'm starving I devour crap!

    3 weeks ago I lost 2lbs a week so 6lbs whilst following s&s a couple of days then eating for a day back to s&s so sort of like judd.

    I can follow the first 2 days of a vlcd diet with no problem so I can see dd being very easy for me, I know you can get quite a bit of food for 500calories with planning but I am going to stick to my shakes and meal packs on my dd for the time being.

    I'm going to weigh in tomorrow and take that as my starting weight for judd as that will be a true start weight even though I've been pretty low on the calories today as was trying to stick to my vlcd but it just isn't working for me anymore :-(

    I hate the daily grind of vlcd and admire those who can do them for months. I find Dd easy. I fast on them now but I do from 5pm - 5pm or thereabouts. It seems easier. Good luck :) I've lost loads on it and only been doing it nearly 4 weeks. xx

    Thank you and you have done great so far I've read your diary when lurking previously.

    I have asked this before but have forgotten, When you fast do you eat your 500 calories in those 24 hours as a dd or have nothing? X

    I usually have nothing but black coffee, herbal tea and water. Occasionally I have a shake before bed as I can't sleep on an empty stomach but that usually if I haven't eaten enough on my UD. I'm not a daytime eater anyway so find it easy to not eat until tea time. Drinking lots of water helps. :) x

    I'm the same with regards to eating I can go untill 4 ish easily with no food, when you have done say your 5-5 fast do you then have your ud calorie allowance for the next 5-5 period?

    I'm just confused as to how it works as in what follows after x

    Yes I eat all my UD calories from 5pm - until the following 5 pm. I know I was confused at first too. Han's schedule will help :) xx It looks like UUD DDU UUD etc

    I have a diary in the members section. I'm giving it a whirl for maintenance only started again this week

    I maintained till my op keeping eye on calories etc I tried juddd but just found it hard straight off the bat

    I'm at 7 weeks post op so I've been strictly following surgeons diet since! Will see how it goes for maintenance :)

    So we are new to it together!

    That's brilliant with maintains for that long and I'm sure you will keep it up on here :)

    I was 12st 8 at last weigh in and have faffed around since then so hoping I haven't gained for tomorrow, il be happy with a 2lb a week loss if that's achievable but I'm sure with the fasting it will be x

    Wow weigh in day today for me from last week and I'm down 1.6lbs to 12st6.4!

    I really can't beleive it as I ate alot yesterday and felt so full and bloated this morning!

    I did s&s for 3 days at the beginning of the week and have eaten for the past 4 days and alot without counting in some of those days.

    I really can see now that by following judd properly I will lose weight :)

    Going to try and have a protein meal at around 4ish then that's me done untill tomorrow :)
