Hi all! I had an up calorie day on Sunday, and wow am I having a hard time yesterday and today to get back into the swing of things! Maybe giving a day off is not such a good idea after all! I am down another 1.3 lbs, for a total of 7 so far. Not too bad! Pretty soon will be back into the 'feeling good' zone, and soon the 'feeling great' zone.
My GI has been a bit of a mess though. I think that trying to eat salad after an 18 hour fast is not such a good idea. I am experimenting with only doing the cooked veggies and meat at lunch, and seeing if that helps.

It is "Johnson's Up Day Down Day" protocol. Basically do some version of very low calorie or fasting and alternate that with higher calorie days. His web site has a calculator to figure out the high and low calories if you are interested.
Sabine has started two JUDDD threads if you are interested in the program.
Thanks for this. Demuralist already mentioned it & they are now safely in the freezer waiting for the day the dog need his breakfast & I don’t have any eggs!
PS: I freeze it in ice cube trays then suck on one in the summer if I crave some ice cream. For me it makes an acceptable alternative as I don’t use any form of sugar or sugar substitute
I just wanted to mention that it happened again. Last night I came home and was feeling like I wanted to eat something even though I was not hungry. After the third trip to the hazelnut package and feeling full ( I HATE feeling like I over ate) I decided to drink some salt water since I realized I was looking for something salty to eat. Even before I finished the 6 ounce glass my craving to eat had evaporated. I don't know if it's psychological or driven by a need for sodium but it's worked twice in two weeks. The downside is my weight is up another two pounds this am but it's water weight so I hope it drops off in a day or so.
How much salt in that glass of water?
I knew someone would ask. I didn't measure. I am guessing about a gram of kosher real salt.
Over the last few months I have added a number of BMR calculators here. None of which I think are particularly accurate but all are good fun (note to newbies - I am NOT a fan of using calculated BMR but YMMV). I wasn't going to post any more until I found this:
John's BMR Calculator
Its so good I just had to share.
