    Hmm, interesting. I assumed that I was hungrier this morning because it's the start of TOM and I'm always hungrier (even when I am in ketosis and eating less than 50 carbs a day). I'm fine now after I had my snack at noon. I'll just have to see if eating more carbs on UD's affects my down days in the future.

    The other thing I have noticed while I've been dieting (and I've been doing the low carb thing for a while) is that some days I'm just hungrier and I usually notice a "whoosh" after those hungrier days. I know it doesn't make sense, but weight loss certainly isn't linear and sometimes you get big whooshes.

      ya, that is a definite possibility. hmmm also you are not use to eating that many carbs, but I think that if u did it for awhile your body would a just and not be SO sensitive to it.. When you go low carb it takes a while to get out of it. I think your body can get use to it.. (that might be a good thing) it's just time to adapt. Altho, we all know where we are uncomfortable.

      • Down 1.2 after my dd but I'm still up .4 from Thursday. I too think my TOM is starting anyDay now, been taking pregnancy tests all week( negatives)and now I feel bloated so yea. Looking forward to my ud though, making ribs with primal bbq sauce , loaded baked cauliflower, and glazed lemon cake. No Grains Delicious Lemon Bread with a Lemon Glaze | Primally Inspired cept I'm gonna make them in to cupcakes so I can give 2/3 of it away. I don't bake very many paleo/primal treats but when I do I always give more than half away, helps that both my mom and a friend are primal too so they are more than happy to receive! By the way as written if made I to 12 cupcakes they have 160 cals/18 carbs/9 fat/ 6 protein. Ill let you know how they turn out!

        • I used to love probably still DO!) that Starbucks lemon bread, so I think I will try this, too. In bread style, since I have two teenagers to help me eat it. Thanks for figuring the macros for us.

          I had a good day yesterday. Friends over in the evening, but I was able to keep to just a small piece of quiche and some salad for my dinner, skipping the pizza and cheesecake. Calorie count slightly high for a Down day, but I felt in control. I count it as a success. And the weight dip this morning was very encouraging. I do my weekly weigh-in tomorrow (always the weekend day after an Up Day), and I am hoping for good things.

          TeriAnn, I am following your progress with interest, because I have pains that I am hoping to get rid of as well. Do you have a journal?

Yesterday was an ud, and i think i over ate, and the day before that, I may have over ate on my dd.
            Todays a new dd, and I'm back on track. its not an exact science, and if it takes me the summer to lose my 20 pounds, so be it. Patience, self acceptance, and enjoying the journey are my goals. the benefits from SIRT 1 and ADF go beyond weight loss, and good health , extra energy, clear skin, good hair days all combine to make me mighty happy I decided to follow this type of eating (after only 10 days, I have all theses benefits)
            Its better for me to keep the focus off the pounds. My inches have decreased. My clothes fit better. My moods are balanced. Lots to be grateful for.
            Its lovely sunny weather, and gentle gardenng is greta exercise, I will stay busy and happy all weekend
            I'm right with you!

            • Today is a beach volley ball with all my friends. It's also a DD for me... Ugh. Sometimes I find myself overwhelmed on UD worried that i'm not getting in enough to cover me for my DD. I think that thought process is setting me up for failure. That's not a way to live or even do this right. I just need to be smart and bring my own food to Vball. This week i don't feel as good last week either. Last night I went over 2100 by only 100 cals. You guys think that makes a difference? I know that being freaky controlling... I guess I just want that weight loss success SO BADLY. Maybe I just need to let go of the weight thing and just relax and stay on JUDDD. just sharing thoughts... Although, I think I'm seriously committed to this even through out the summer. I want fit into my jeans I haven't fit into since before the holidays... So, 1 pant size and 15 pounds. Lets do it body! <3

              • Yoga11-100 extra calories on your Up Day will be fine. Try not to stress over it so much. Remember, you only need to count the calories on your Down Day. And even there, an extra 100 every once in a while should be fine. I had an extra 150 yesterday, and still had a very pleasing drop this morning.

                I made the lemon bread, it is cooling on my stovetop right now, waiting for the glaze. It smells great. I am looking forward to trying it.

                • Well, I guess I'm taking an unwanted/unintentional break from ADF, lol. I've had bad watery diarrhea for the last 3 days, and yesterday all I wanted to do was have clear liquids and crackers. I have some gluten free crackers, so had 8 of those and some sliced roast beef and some watered down apple juice (no added sugar). It was supposed to be a down day, but I ended up having around 930 calories. Today is supposed to be an up day but I doubt it will be a much higher calorie count. Today I've had a Starbucks drink and some chicken and rice. Talk about higher carbs, lol. I need to get rid of the watery D before tomorrow though...I'm taking a short cruise on Wednesday and they won't let me on the ship if I still have it (or within 3 days).

                    • My Lemon muffins turned out great! I used whole milk and I think the lemon curdled it so my cake had weird little brown spots all over it that resembled raisins. It didnt effect the flavor but next time I might just make with coconut milk. How'd your turn out Sabine?

                          Hi Sabine, No I do not have a journal, except here at home. I'm guessing its the colitis you are curious about?
                          I was diagnosed in 1998. I have had numerous surgeries, and the pharmaceutics just arent working for me anymore. I decided in Sept 2012 my goal for 2013 was to cure myself. Thus began the biggest research project in my history. It lead me to paleo, and marks daily apple. If food is my first line of defense, I needed to figure out what i was eating that hurts me. Through elimination diets, I have determined, my enemy # 1 is corn, and corn products (isnt that stuff just in everything?)
                          Enemy # 2 is sugar and products that turn to sugar in my body (starches - peas, potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, wheat products
                          so, I dont eat any of it anymore. I am finishing up this round of steroids, and my after next colonoscopy ( every 8 weeks like clockwork for 3 years now) I am quitting all the doctor drugs. Its a HUGE scary decision, but its made.
                          IMO, the disease is in remission, and my symptoms are completely gone. My health is fully in my control. What i eat determines how my machine runs.

                          I have read this half fast works wonders for the digestive system. I think it might, but I started taking magnesium supplements same time I started this, so,i am having a reaction to the supplements until my body acclimatizes.

                          The weight loss is far from the reason I am here, but it will be a lovely bonus.

                          Today and tomorrow are up days, as of yet, Im not calorie counting either up or down. I may have to, but for now, Its nice to remember what it feels like to have hunger.

                            Ive got this. We've got this.

                              Glad you are back down. I'm exhausted reading your menus everyday! You are so ambitious in the kitchen! By the way, I tried that coleslaw recipe you posted a while back, thank you!

                              Yoga - I use 1/2 tsp of baking powder in those cream cheese pancakes.

                              Sabine - can't wait to hear how your lemon loaf turned out since Veronica's turned out good. I haven't done any baking in a while (I love to bake) but I think I may try this as a treat and I can bring the leftovers in to work.

                              ------------

                              Down again this morning after my down day (actually saw 216.8 on the scale!). I'm totally stuffed from my up day today and not sure if i'll get all my calories in. I also did not get my strength workout in today and I feel guilty about that. My carbs were around 85 today because I had a banana with full fat Greek yogurt this morning (yum!) so we'll see how I feel tomorrow. Instead of doing a full up day tomorrow I think I will do a Mid day. Still trying to figure everything out, but man I am sleeping so well, feeling great, lots of energy, etc.

                              • 252- I hope you are feeling better. Ugh. When it goes on for more than an episode, it really wears you out. Keep your eyes on that cruise, and your bowels will follow! (here's hoping!)

                                Sadly, I wasn't that thrilled with the lemon loaf. It was just okay. I wonder if I am losing my taste for bread-like items. The glaze was fantastic, though!

                                TerriAnn- I am tracking exactly what I eat, and the number and types of pains, and have found some correlations that are helping me get back on track. One of the good things, is I seem to be bouncing back from any spikes more quickly. I think I am slowly healing up. And I tell myself that any spikes I get are just giving me more information about what it causing the problem. Too many sugars seems to be a big culprit.

                                Honey and I went out for a burger last night, at a new place. (I had mine sans bun.) We both had to run for the bathroom an hour afterwards, though. It led to a weight drop AFTER an Up Day for me. Always nice, but I don't like the process.

                                I posted my last month's numbers on my journal, if anyone is interested. The summary: I am losing my pound per week that I am aiming for.

                                Today I am going for a Protein-centric Down Day: 4oz fish with 1t of homemayo, repeat, repeat.
