    Hi please would someone be able to help me. I have been doing CD for 5 weeks on sunday, in total to date I have lost 16lbs but getting fed up of it and from Monday I am hoping to do Juddding. I have got the book FAST DIET and read through but wld like to JUDDD. Anyhow. I have put my statistics in the JUDDD calculator, and the calories I have been given is DD 356 UD 1786. Is this right??? I'm a little sad as 1786 seems very low! Thank you all in advance. X

    ladybird777 back to lose some more

    Most of us have 500 on a DD ( or fast as I do) and up to 2,000 on an UD. Sometimes we go over 2,000 on the odd UD and still lose weight. If you go too low on a UD you don't get the calorie swing that makes the plan work. :)

    Hello and welcome to Juddding! You would be surprised how much you can have for 1800 calories and it would be interesting to see how far you can make them stretch!

    I'm sure I've read that DDs are rounded up to 500 cals minimum so perhaps try that instead.

    Thank you so much for the replies... Today (even tho in still on CD) I just ate like a pig 5pm onwards, just because I hadn't eaten all day and the thought of being able to eat sunday onwards made be just gorge on food!!

    On reflection I just can't believe it!
    Totally out of charecter, I was looking deeper into the fridge and cupboards,just stuffing myself......and the food didn't actually taste all that good!!

    Anyway I think I will continue to sunday with CD, but will definatly JUDDD from monday.

    Last question for example if a DD begins Sunday 11pm. Will my UD begin Monday 11pm or Tuesday morning when I get up?

    Sorry for the long post, but all advice is greatly appreciated.

    When I was doing full days I would start eating the next morning...but as long as you don't go wildly over your cal allowance in the 24hr period I can't see it really matters x good luck :) x

    Ok I'm gna try that, so far today I've had 2 CD shakes...and the last time I ate was 11pm last night 24 hours are up at 11!

    So I'm gonna have the shake around 10pm, and when I wake up tomorrow morning I'll decide if I should stick to CD or do an up day... A little frigtened if I'm honest...dnt want to put on weight, but I'm getting really fed up with CD.

    Sorry for the Whine..Wish me luck.

    I get a bit frightened of UDs, too, but I'm using Myfitnesspal to keep track of how many calories I'm eating to keep some control. My first week WI on Monday so I'll be able to see if it's working. Good luck. X

    Is this an Up day or a Down day? If its a Down Day you need to ideally try & get it below 500. I sincerely hope its not an Up day, because that is way way too low, especially if after a Down need an absolute minimum of 1200 cals after a DD just to prevent the loss of lean body tissue ( muscle & organs) and you really should be aiming to be at least over 1500, assuming you are reasonably active & not lying in bed all day.

    Hi Jilly,

    Thank you for the reply I am on a up day, nearly done as i want my down day to finish at 5pm tomorrow hence gna finish at 5pm today.
    just had early dinner:

    Quorn sausage 190
    slimming world chips 120
    milky bar 89
    rice cake 40

    which is about: 1227
    Water: 4 Liters

    theres nothing more in the house to eat, shall i have a slice of cheese and top up to 1400?

    sorry for bugging everyone, but i really want this to work

    I think you will find your DD easier if you do have that bit of cheese!!! Protein is ideal as well for staving off hunger pangs!

    You can have up to 2000 on an up day! I find am always really hungry after a down day so eat plenty to get thru the next down day, u need the swing between both days to get your metabolism going, good luck

    Thanks SP999, yesterday was a DD and I did my CD shakes,today I ate loads of food as it was my up day....but decided to finish at 5pm so that my DD will finish at 5pm and then just have the shakes.

    Jilly I didn't manage to have the cheese as it had gone past 5, perhas next time.

    Hi all just got weighed (halfway through my DD) and I have put on 2lbs........sticking to my CD packs today, planning on doing double DD's.

    I would say do alternates for a week then weigh hun.

    Don't do a double down, you've just started. Know its hard coming from vlcd but give the plan a chance :)
