It reminds me of calorie cycling too. I don't know if you have every looked at that either. That might also help you too if you need another boost and so glad for you in losing. I know that's the best feeling. Take care Mary and good luck.

Thanks Cheryl...

And yes - with the diabetes it would be very tricky!

I am now doing the diet at the higher level for hard exercisers (on my down day) so that can give me more calories on the down day... and it feels pretty good. and I will watch carefully. I do weights 3 days a week (The Firm) plus 10K steps.

I am currently off asthma medication, since starting this, and that feels good.

But each person should find what works - weight loss in general helps asthma -but this can give it a kick start. I think even a modified level might help some people...but that remains to be seen.

PS To my old SP friends - It's been a very rough journey... My beloved, healthy, athletic, tall, dark and handsome husband died in August 2012 from a very aggressive cancer... In the many months caring for him I was stressed and didn't "care" anymore, and put back on 30 pounds I had just finished losing... And then I gained even more...

I looked at this diet you suggested and this can not be for me because I am diabetic and have to eat more calories than what they offer. I never recommend going below 1200 to anyone for that reason of the sugar bottoming. I have used a diabetic plan which runs closely with the SP plan and have lost 60 pounds and am keeping it off. For me I have asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol so I am really skeptical about any other ways. If you are losing weight this weight I am glad for you but please just be careful.

Hi,

I'm new on this thread, and I'm posting this on all the asthma teams - hoping to find my best group...

I've had adult onset asthma for about 5 years. Sometimes extremely serious and debilitating.

The links below can direct you to a study of how this diet can reverse asthma. there is a spark team for it, too, called Friends of Dr. Johnson. I'm on the team.

I also did a workout yesterday - even though it was my "Down Day" (low calorie day)

I am currently doing the 30% level and losing weight. But they recommend 20-25% for first two weeks - and the asthma study was at that level too. All of this is made clear on the web site.

Anyway, if you wan to try it, let me know. I do the Leptin Diet on my up days (Google Byron Richards...) and that is very helpful.

I've been on this plan for 10 days and I am currently off medications. I could feel an improvement after one week. (I was only on Asmanex -) Anyway - so far so good. I am encouraged for both weight loss and reversing asthma.

Prevention and treatment of disease

Based on a variety of sources of evidence, following the Johnson UpDayDownDay Diet™ will prevent, delay or improve a wide range of diseases associated with age. These include asthma, arthritis, atherosclerosis (heart disease, stroke), allergies, auto-immune disease, infectious diseases of viral, bacterial and fungal origin, diabetes, cancer and central nervous system disorders such as Alzheimers, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.

We have completed the first human trial on the treatment of disease (asthma) with the JUDDDD and the results (see article) will appear soon in the peer-reviewed journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine. The study demonstrated marked improvement in symptoms in asthmatics and drastic lowering of free radical damage. www.johnsonupdaydowndaydiet.com/
