A Conversation for How to Lose and Control Weight
Up Day Down Day
Pimms Started conversation Feb 25, 2008
One way of avoiding the famine response noted inthe entry is to vary the calorie intake on alternate days -on up days eat normally, on down days reduce calorie intake as much as you can comfortably (the aim is for about a quarter of normal intake eg 500 calories if 2000 is what you estimate are needed for your bodyweight). This has the strong additional benefit that the stress of being on a reduced calorie diet is limited to a day at a time - you just need to ask yourself whether you have the will power to put off the until tomorrow.
The name this diet goes by is the Johnson Up Day Down Day Diet (JUDDD diet) http://www.johnsonupdaydowndaydiet.com/
