Hi Nightangel! I just posted to your other post in the other thread.
I tried low carb, several different versions (Atkins, Protein Power, etc.) and although I did feel better on it and loved what you can eat, it's just not sustainable for life for me. I liked Protein Power because you can eat more carbs than Atkins allows and also whatever carbs you want. I've done WW several times and got tired of counting, weighing and measuring.
I learned about JUDDD almost 4 years ago. I only lost 14 lbs. on it, but that was the most success I'd had on any diet plan in 30 years! I wavered from it and got lost in Diet Land. I got sick of dieting and found Thin Within and The Eden Diet (also a non-dieting approach), both grace-based using God's help. I gained, unfortunately, but am now using the TW keys on my UDs. I want to eventually eat the TW way, but need the boost of JUDDD.
JUDDD is also a form of Intermittent Dieting, which you can google and see that there are great benefits to that. The down days can be a little tough sometimes, so some mind over matter thinking is beneficial. Along with asking God's help in it, it helps me to think of my body resting from having to digest alot of food. In the past I would think about people around the world who have much less food than I have access to. Also, JUDDD is basically calorie-cycling. Once you can add more DD calories, it's more like eating like naturally thin people do. If they eat a lot one day, they eat less the next.
Hopefully, your husband will support you in this. I understand that dieting together on the same plan is a great help for both of you. Ultimately, though, you may have to do what works best for you. I hope you give JUDDD a go and see what works for you. Some here do water fasts on their DDs. Some eat small calorie meals throughout the day. Some, like me, do best saving my cals for the evening.
Anyway, hope this has helped some and be sure to read around this forum with the older threads. Several have reached their weight loss goals and continue to maintain having used JUDDD.
