    Welcome Veronica! On up days i don't try to eat to the calories they say, I just eat until I'm satisfied. If I'm hungry I'll eat, but otherwise I don't try to get them all in.

    I've only done 3 down days, the first was easy, the second was harder, and yesterday had my third down day, and it was much easier. I've been trying to divide my calories into two "meals", one small one while at work, and one slightly larger at home.

    Woo Hoo! Up day. New scale reflected 277 this morning- so even thought my other scale was off, and I never got to 275, it's ok. I'll get there for real.

    Up day today. Tried having breakfast before my early shift today- didn't really work out. Food doesn't sit well with me that early in the morning. Got home from work today and made breakfast for lunch. 158g of potato made in olive oil, 1.5 oz of sausage, 2 bacon strips and 2 eggs. I ate it ALL NOM NOM NOM Up day.

    I started again on Monday. 500 on DD and 2000 on UP. As of this morning I had lost 6 lbs! I was really surprised. So far it has been fairly easy, though today (an UD) I have been hungrier. I just finished a steak and potato and still feel hungry. This is the first time this week I have been really hungry. Amazingly on my DD I have not been obsessing about food. And I always obsess about food. Literally, when I wake up in the morning and think about my day what I am going to eat is very prominent in my thoughts/plans. If this cures that obsession I would be amazed and oh so very grateful.

    My sister is doing this as well, though she is not eating primal despite my best efforts. She has lost 6 lbs as well. I love this!

    Hopefully this hunger feeling will go away before tomorrow as I have a long day ahead fo me. I started my second job last night and while I am excited about it it can make for a long day.

    Yay!!! Your 'breakfast' sounds yummy!!! I often have breakfast at dinner, and I've been known to eat dinner at breakfast, lol. Funny about Primal/EMF/JUDDD....I used to be a morning eater. I'd wake up famished and could eat just about anything but since starting Primal in February and especially after EMF and now JUDDD, I am just not hungry in the morning.

    Congratulations to you and your sister!!! Six pounds is great! I have days when I am hungrier than others...haven't quite figured out if there is a cause/effect thing going on or if it's just a natural body cycle thing.

    First dd completed, I have to say that I'm most definitely hungry but it's not too horrible. Can't say I'm not looking forward to tomorrow though! On my next dd I'm going to eat my 424 calories in one meal to see if I like that better. I'm kinda scared to go to bed, I feel like my hunger is going to keep me awake, ill probably take a melatonin just in case.

    Couldn't I also just eat 2000 on my ud and 500 on my dd? I wonder why the juuddd calc splits it up to 2144 and 424 instead?

    I'm finding myself not very hungry on my ud...and then eating a tiny bit more than I "should" on my dd (like 800 calories.) It's all probably averaging out the same, and I am seeing good results, but don't want to fall into eating more than I realize.

    Tomorrow is a dd and I will just do water, tea with cream, and bone broth. Eating solid food seems to make me want to eat more on my dd.

    I agree dragonfly, after I ate my eggs earlier today I was ravenous, two hours later fine. I was super hungry before my zucchini noodle dinner and felt satiated for about 20 mins after and now my stomach is growling angrily! Almost seems better to go without. Ill probably like just eating 1 late meal on my dd but we shall see. I foresee going to bed early on dd's just so tomorrow comes sooner lol!

    Tomi I didn't know if there was some scientific method to those numbers or what, good to know I can mess with it a little essentially for me,over the course of a week I'm consuming 1284 calories per "day" so I see why this works for people. That's a much bigger calorie deficit than I've been eating so I really hope it works for me. Plus that whole SIRT1 if that works too. Really really crossing my fingers!
