When you enter your stats into JUDDD, even at the *little exercise* level, I get maintenance calories for you at your current weight at about 2300.
And I think you do exercise on a regular basis, but it has always seemed counter-productive to me, when I am trying to lose weight, to then eat even more calories to make up for all of the lost calories I managed to burn up from exercise. :confused: :hyst:
Now, quite a few folks think JUDDD is a bit overly generous with their calorie numbers, so.. we sometimes cut a couple hundred back down from the figure they give us.
Also, thinking about that from the viewpoint of that calorie number being for maintenance, if we are getting pretty close to goal weight, that makes more sense, but if we still have quite a bit to lose, do we really want to be using that maintenance number to maintain our higher weight? - - So I think that is another good point to keep in mind as you consider what number to go with on your Up Days.
I'd probably go with about 2000 or 2100 for UDs if it were me. What do you use for your UD calorie number right now?
And what are you holding to on your DD fasting days?
