    I've only been Juddding for three days after toying with VLCDs and SW for the best part of three years and this is the first time in a long time I've been forced to really focus on my eating and drinking habits.

    I'm used to not eating much and equally used to eating all I like but I've made a promise to myself to stick to my recommended calorie allowance.

    Today is the first day I've realised that on an eat all I like day I could have easily consumed 4000 calories. I've found that sticking to 2650 calories as recommended by Dr J means I've made an effort to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and I haven't snacked.

    Every day is a new battle with my head telling me to starve or binge and tonight I'm feeling how I did this morning - that sticking to plan on an UD is just as important as restricing calories on a DD - which I find easier as it's what you're "supposed" to do on a diet.

    So here I am feeling satisfied not sick with fullness nor hunger and looking forward to discovering how much better I can feel about myself.

    I'm 3 weeks in to the JUDDD plan and I too have realised that the UPS must be handled with care, I think I was initially thrown by the eat normally thing, what is normally? I've been no so many diets for so long I don't know what normal is anymore!!

    Well done for getting your head into it so quickly though, I am a slow learner!!

    When I was questioned about starting a VLCD I was asked why I don't just eat normally? I, too, realised I didn't know how.

    Dd, today, got my Exante packs at the ready. Feeling good!

    Hi Judy welcome to Juddd.. I've been Juddding for 6 months & also have to watch my UDs, even though UDs can be seen to be an eat what you like day I agree some level of control is needed or you wipe out the DD deficit. I still have the odd UUADs but I've learnt that u can fit a lot of food into an UD if you watch the sugar & fats, swap high cals for lower options & keep the treats within reason. Being a carb junkie ie cakes, biccies etc I would have struggled to lose any weight if i hadnt reined them in. Juddd has made me listen to my body & limit the foods that sets off my cravings. Basmati rice can have my scales bouncing like a rubber ball sometimes up to 4lbs if I over indulge eeek.

    Good luck with your journey & those battles will get easier once you've settled in & the SirTs kick in.. :)

    Second Week Update - Another 1lb off which I'm happy with as I'm now in the next stone bracket! Woop!

    I've also lost inches this week. How can I tell? My trousers are doing a London Bridge! Good excuse to go shopping at the weekend!

    After a marvellous week last week I did my old tricks at the weekend and got smashed on Saturday resulting in a handsome 2lbs on for Weigh In day.

    Lessons learnt- Listen to my head. My head was screaming at me to take the car, drink sugar free Red Bull, tonic and pop. I chose to drink and drink to excess, so slapped wrists.

    Lesson two - No cigarettes. I'm giving up smoking slowly but surely but not had one for three days and on my fateful night out I was with lot of former smokers, so that was good. I think much more clearly when I'm not smoking.

    Lesson three - This diet is making me listen to my body as well as my mind. I'm not craving rubbish like I usually do but I am craving comfort and stability. I think I'm easing myself in to it.

    Conclusion - Don't drink thousands of calories on a Saturday if you want a weight loss. Here's to this week.....!

    amazing! kudos to you! i too have found that UD's are just as important - 'normal' is a new thing for me too, who would have thought that you just dont need all that much food? weird, but great!
