    I wish I could find more personal accounts of people who have followed ADF or 5:2 for an extended period of time. I found one youtube video of a lady who had been doing ADF for 4 years, but she didn't give many details. Just said she was doing great. And a guy's blog who has been doing it since September 2021, but he was fairly fit to begin with, and - typical guy- tells a lot about what he is eating, and how he trains, but not how it FEELS! heehee.

    Now this morning after an ud while on TTOM I managed to stay the same weight. Today, so far, no hunger issues. Just a couple of twinges that went away. If I manage to actually maintain on my ud's and lose on my dd's even if only a fraction of a pound, I would be one very happy camper!!!

    I am not trying to limit the ud's by the by. I am just eating lowish carb and to satisfaction. I say lowish because it is higher than when I do low carb, but still with in the range that Mark and others consider low carb/weight loss/ketosis numbers-even if they don't show ketones in my blood.

    My typical pattern seems to be going up a pound or so after Up Days, and going down ~ a pound and a half or staying the same after Down Days. I am looking more at my two charts that show all my Up Days connected and all my Down Days connected. Both lines are heading steadily if slowly downward.

    I think our Up Days will keep us from not feeling hunger on Down Days. Once you eat, your body just seems to turn that switch to 'ON'.

    Dd# 4 going well, just had coffee and HWC this morning and I didn't feel hungry at all till 2 pm. So that's good! Though I've only had 1 glass of water today too, I wonder if that has anything to do with it? Maybe not chugging water all day is keeping my hunger at bay? Whatever it is I'm glad for it this is a first down day where I feel like I'm not counting the minutes till dinner. Weigh in this morning was 219.6 so up .4 from Yesterday. I'll be okay if every up day is only a few ounces more than what I weigh in on a down day.

    Yes, that's all I hope for...to lose after a down day and at least maintain on an up day.

    I DO think my body will adapt eventually to less food. I would have never thought that possible 3 months ago. I'm already eating WAY less than I was before finding primal blueprint. I also do think my appetite/hunger signals will even themselves out to an adequate degree the longer I do this. As it is, my down days are slightly over the 500, but have been as high as 650. I think I could very easily do 800 calories on a down day or the rest of my life.

    A REALLY nice side benefit of this is that I AM truly going through less food, lol.

    I think on the JUDDD forum on LCF there are a few who have been doing it for the long term, and a couple who fell off only to come back to it.

    To me, for maintenance, it would be easier to add a fast day to a 5:2 week to keep in range than to jump back on a diet.
