gona try judding

hi guys, ive decided that i'm gonna give judding a go starting tomorrow, my weight has been stalling, moving up and down the scales so lets see what happens, i'm not too sure of what to do except that i'm allowed 500cals on a DD and 2000 on a up day so i'll be following that.

does anyone no what i'm suppose to be eating on the different days or can i eat anything i want as long as i stick to my calories?

thanks in advance xx

Good luck with Juddering.

You can eat whatever you like as long as it is within the calories allowed.

I tried it for a week before I came down with a bad flu and been off all dieting since...

In the meantime my book arrived explaining the diet and where I was doing my best to eat all of the calories on an upday which I found very difficult most days, the book explains that you do not have to do that but to eat until your appetite is satisfied.:)
thanks mini, really helpful information, i'm very exited about starting tomorrow, think i will start on a down day and will have slimfast shakes spilt in four tiny portions and an apple before bed.

Sounds good and don't forget plenty of water throughout the day which will help!

Nice to have another juddd newbie! Welcome :D looks like your first dd went really well hun. I and others find it's easier on a dd if you wait as long as possible before eating, as once you start your body wants your and you end up hungry. I usually don't eat until at least 2pm on a dd, obviously eat normally with breakfast on an ud. But you know you best, so if it's works best for you having breakfast on dd's go for it.

Good luck hun xx
Thanks for your advise stirky, it all makes sense, i crave foods especially in the mornings, as soon as i start eating i cant stop ( well these days anyway lol) so today i started to eat after 12pm which works well, im loving the fact that i can eat so much on a DD and be so full, you'd be shocked on the amount of low calorie foods you can eat and not feel so deprived considering i'm diabetic so thats good in my books. i am loving my spicy sweet potato soup, i made a huge batch, the whole pot was under 200 cals. sorry for going on but i'm loving this idea of juddering,

hope your day is going well

I don't think you are eating enough on an up day. You have to eat enough to 'trick' your body into thinking it's not on a diet. It's the change in calories that triggers the 'skinny gene'. And 1207 calories are the amount most people on a low-calorie diet would find to be the lowest they should go.

It is really hard to get into the mind set of eating what you fancy, not what you think you should eat. I remember the guilt I used to feel when I first started, but it is long gone now. :D

And you don't have to eat junk food to up your calories, you can still eat healthy, if that is what you are worried about. eg salmon, nuts, eggs, higher calorie fruit and veg, normal bread, olive oil etc.

Good luck in upping your calories, haha, what other diet can you say that?:p

thanks sanghi, i really feel guilty on a normal day eating more tham 1200 its more like a habit to me, i will definately have some more extra foods later on after dinner or so as i feel quite full. lol atleast i can eat loads and still lose weight, really strange thinking about it as a diet xx

L - same as breakfast - 130

D - 100g new potatoes * 70* scrambled egg *80* mixed veg *50*

L - 2 wholemeal bread rolls and 50g oats porridge with a few tsp's of sweetener.

Hi Tamzy,

Just catching up as I haven't been on here for a week! Wow you're doing great, big well done on the 4lbs loss, that's fab!! Yes I struggled too at first eating enough on up days as I came off slimfast so was only having 1200 cals a day on that, yes it is important to eat enough if you aim for 1800-2200 you'll be fine.

Good luck hun xx
Thanks for your post stirky, i love juddering, and it really works for me so i will stick to it, its really weird but i prefer my down days, it makes me feel nice and light.
