    • I got a pail. It is an acquired taste! I would get a bar or two first. I now really like it....but did NOT in the beginning. Looks easy to make, I just haven't found the energy.

        Fantastic news about the loss. I am curious to know though (assuming you track your calories daily) if your average daily calorie in take over the period you have been doing JUDDD is greater or less than the average taken for the same length of time pre JUDDD

        I suspect this is why this type of diet works for most people. The fact that you can have the thing you might be craving tomorrow (by which time you probably wont want it anyway) without any of the guilt, stops people tending to over eat.

        This is me I have come to realize. Recognising it for what it is has made a huge difference to my actually doing it.

        Tedious at first I agree, but any successful weight loss requires some sort of accurate calorie tracking else how do you prolong the weight loss after the first whoosh? If you tend to eat the same things it gets easier over time (Another option is to create a set of set meals so you don’t have to track everything, only the meal totals). Also I tend to portion things up before storing it so it all becomes less of an issue.

        Can’t you drink water?

        Carbs are optional as far as the body goes. If they don’t help, don’t eat them.

        Less is probably more re protein & NK. Eating slightly too much will nock you out of NK. If you are cycling in & out this may be contributing to the headaches. Low days & high days exacerbate the problem. You should be aiming to keep the protein & carb levels the same & seeing the fat% go up or down depending on whether it is UD or DD

        The other thing to remember with protein & NK is that when NK is firmly established, the optimal protein level will be reduced as the brain switches over to ketones so the protein feeding the brain will no longer be required.

        As for losing muscle mass. All the studies I have read so far suggest this isn’t the case on NK as muscle mass is only lost if the body is nutritionally starving & hence forced to cannibalise muscle in order to feed the brain. As the body optimises fat oxidisation from body fat, it can’t starve until body fat % gets into single figures (NB: some muscle mass loss is inevitable as fat cells contain mitochondria i.e. muscle mass which will be lost as the empty fat cells die off & are not regenerated)


        Here's to your next few weeks of JUDDD success

          Planning to start this although I need to go to the grocery store. Of course, being gone, my fridge is empty anyway..lol
          I have been drinking 1/2 lemon squeezed in hot water first thing for years to help boost liver function. The trick is to not eat or drink anything for approx 1hr afterwards to give the liver time to receive the benefits without contamination from anything else.

          Re the lipstick etc drink. Although it all sounds good, I wonder how much of each of the vitamins etc mentioned are actually ingested this way (ie leached onto the water & not actually eaten). Not a lot I would think (sounds like a nice drink though)

            Basically back to my "holding" weight before 2 cashew incidents. The question is now: can I get lower?

              • Ruth, when you post your weight, you put the number then ud or dd. Is the weight the result of what you put behind it or is what you put behind it what today is? In other words, for March 25th you weigh 158.2 then you put UD after. Is 158.2 the result of an UD or is today (the 25th) an up day?

                    • I also mean to put my calories and 2 day average on the chart, but ran out of time today. In theory, I was also going to test my FBS, but keep forgetting to do that before I eat!

                        • The MFP app has a nice bar chart that shows my daily ups and downs and then has the weekly average. I like that chart as well, which I may also put into my spreadsheet

                          • when I go back and check my weekly chart in MFP, it shows just how bad I have been in tracking, which usually means I gave up because I was out of control or in a restaurant.

                            • Just did my two-day averages, in line with my dailies. Interesting that there are still dips and rises. We must accept that our bodies just do things for no rhyme or reason that we can see sometimes, even if it irks us no end.

                                I like this. I normally do a weekly average for calories and macros but think maybe I need to break it down to an every 2 day average.
