    You can defnitley work out on dds-many start to have more energy on their dds On Mondays I'll be doing my 700-900 calorie mid days (md), and I usually walk two miles briskly, plus I've started doing Mark Lauren's strength training program, which I do M/T/FR. I have had no problems.doing it on a lower calorie day

    Well last night I felt uber crappy-bad cold symptoms that wiped me out! My up day ended up being only around 1,000 calories. This paired with my second primal day of no grains, minimal sugar etc, gave me a weigh in of 127lbs this morning, which is a 1.5lb loss from yesterday and a new low-dang!! I'm now at the low end of my maintenance range. Because of this I've decided to do an ud today, thoughh I'm still pretty congested so it might be another lower calorie day.

    I finished off my protein-focused Down Day with a bowl of greens and bacon. So, a little over calorie-wise, but not bad. (Fish&fat three times, then the greens = 550K)

    It was not as easy as the fat-focused Down Day. I think I will try that again.

    But not on Saturday, because I am going to Germanfest. I'm going to stay primal, but I am NOT worrying about making it a Down Day. I'll just have three Ups in a row. I don't want to switch days, because my Honey and I are on the same schedule. He will be at home, refraining from wurst and cheese, poor guy!

    Looking forward to having some primal pumpkin 'pie'(no crust, maple syrup for the sweetener, guess it is really a custard, not pie) I made yesterday. I'm going to have it as part of my breakfast: eggs, bacon, greens, pumpkin. What could be better?!

    An up day for me today. I finally got a little sleep last night...it's been 3 weeks of no sleep for me and it was starting to get ridiculous, lol. I think today will be a good up day...I'm focusing more on fat to get my calories up a bit. And, if they are able to do it, my employer is getting the three of us Celiac's some gluten-free pizza for the office pizza party, so that will help with th ecalories.

    Umm, Sabine that 'pie' sounds good!!!

    It's interesting about the discussion of working out on DDs...I AM finding that I have a lot of energy on DDs, and actually WANT to work out then, lol. I feel almost sluggish on the UPs.

Dr. Mosley's book goes into this in some depth and for me, I do it for the health benefits now. I also love the way I feel on my dds-lots of energy, a calmness of mind etc. There's a lot more going on here, than just weight loss
    I started his book last night and I'm really finding it interesting!

Im not sure I got in enough calories. I guess i will have to start looking at calories. Im not big on numbers. Havent been on the scale in a year or more. I think I weigh about 160. My goals are clothing articles. im wearing all except a pair of size 6 lucky jeans, those are my goal pants.
    I read most of the pages and have a pretty good feel for what we are doing. im happy to be joining you all
    Welcome TerriAnn! I wouldn't necessarily worry about counting calories just yet...give it a few days and just eat when you are hungry and enough to be satisfied on your UPs. After a few days your appetite may adjust a bit. Having said that, my calories are still fairly low on my UDs after four weeks, so I'm trying to do some adjusting today to get them up a bit. The "problem" (Ha!) I'm having is that I'm just not hungry on UDs.

    Thanks! I would blame it on 'carb flu' but my daught has it too. Plus I have a sore throat, so pretty sure it's a cold bug.

    If you're still looking, I think this is the one.
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    I'm looking forward to my DD today. It's so much easier not worrying about what you need to eat.
