    Assuming I can ever get to maintenance, I think I'd like to do something like 5:2 with a warrior diet.

    On the LC friends forum, it seems as though there are a number of people doing JUDDD with fast 5. Doesn't seem that far off from JUDDD with warrior-style. Although, I'm not sure that I can eat 1700 calories (my UD) at one meal on a regular basis...

    First question: Are any of you responsible for cooking for someone else (child, husband, elderly parent) and if so, how do you handle fasting or doing the down day while fixing food for others? I ask because I have to prepare meals (well, at least dinner) for my mom. While she understands this new way of eating (Primal), I think if I told her I was fasting, it could lead to a conversation I don't want to have. I did visit Dr. Johnson's UDDD page for the details, and see I can have around 500 calories on the down day, so I realize I'm not exactly fasting.
    Second question: Should I do the 500 calories within a certain time frame, or spread it out? I can easily consume those calories with my bulletproof coffee and a tasty protein shake in the first part of the day.

    ^Yes. I save my DD calories for one nice meal with DH and mom. I cook extra on UDs so there's always food for DH - it is sometimes too tempting on DD (not because I'm hungry, but I'm rather sensitive to cues and I like to taste what I'm cooking). Honestly, I haven't told DH about this (the latest in many different tweaks) and he has not appeared to notice - even when we went on a trip together.

    Forgot your 2nd question I like one meal - it seems to fill me up and I don't require anything else. Others do well to split it up. From what I can tell, it doesn't seem to make much of a difference.

    So it requires 36 hours to effect the SR whateveritscalled chemical? dang it. Hunger was prevalent today. Was going to come home and eat a little. 7pm was the 24 hour mark. Looks like I'll be waiting until morning.
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    I think that's what someone said above....but I am not sure how hard and fast that is? You could always start out aiming for the 24 hours, then after you get used to it try for 36hours? The fasting has to be for life for permanent benefit anyway, so it really wouldn't matter if it takes a few months to get to the 36 hour fast.

    Regarding cooking for others - I don't fortunately, I cook for myself and hubby cooks for himself, unless it's a special occasion. But actually that's hard because when I was hungry last night and had my little salad, he had a giant steak with mash potato and some scones! I actually think though that it's easier this way - as it's only twice a week I have to cut calories, giving me more lee way the other days to cook a meal we'll both eat, that isn't being forced to fit around some pre-determined calorie level for me. If that makes sense?

    I ate two small meals, but some people do a single one. I think one of the actual control trials, where women feasted one day, fasted the next, it was a single 500cal meal for lunch.

    I think there is some confusion here about down day.................. its not a 36 hour completely NO food fast. Its 36 hours with only 500 +/- calories. Its never a complete fast.

    So, say its your UP day. You eat normally all day long then after dinner starts the 36 hours. Say 7 PM Monday - so for the next 36 hours - you eat only 500 ish calories. At 7 AM Wednesday you start UP day again and will eat to satiety that day.

    Am I right?

    That is what I am doing, but only twice per week, not every other day

    Try more fat, like coconut milk! I can easily eat 3500 calories in one meal. Pound of meat (use drippings as broth, adding bone stock before drinking), side of cooked veggies, a few eggs, some avocados, and a cup of coconut milk - or two!
