Anyone Losing on 650 Calorie DD's?

Hi, Everyone. Today was my last induction DD of 500 calories. The calculator puts me at 650 for DD's. Is anyone else eating at that level and losing weight? I've got a lot to lose and today it hit me that although I've been really excited about what's happened so far, I have a long way to go with this.

I have certainly had a few dds that went that high. I lost on them.

Over time you will certainly find yourself tuning dds. I suggest you consider 650 your upper limit and eat to hunger and feeling good within that.

I am supposed to be maintaining but after an UD, a MD and a DD yesterday of 650 I weighed in at 122.8 today. The scales actually dropped after each of those days.

We all do our best and if you see losses then you are doing something right. I also believe that if you have a greater percentage of body weight to lose you can sometimes eat at higher DD levels.

The truth is, each of us is different. Give it a try if you feel it will help you stick to the plan. If you lose you are the winner, if not, well, at least you know.

I aim for fewer than 500 but allow up to 700 for particularly "hungry" DDs. The JUDDD calculators put me at 470 for 20% and 800 for 35%, so those are my low and high DD ranges.

At my weight and with my broken metabolism (IR, PCOS, pre-Diabetic), I lose slowly no matter what, but at least I'm LOSING!

In Dr. Johnson's book he has an entire list of DD menus and they are all in the 600 calorie area. I say go for it. My DDs are always between 600-700 and I am losing.

I started at 700 and still do 700 DD calories. I lost fine and now maintain by doing 700/750 DDs and no counting UDs and STILL doing fine.

I say give it a try and see what happens. You can always go back down again if you find it's not working for you.

After all, it's all about WHAT WILL WORK FOR YOU!!

Thanks so much, everyone for setting my mind at ease. My study of the boards hadn't revealed anyone mentioning DDs any higher than 500 calories, which is NOT something I want to continue. Others have posted that over time that becomes easier, and I did find it easier at the end of induction than I did at the beginning, but... not THAT much easier. I had noticed that the stats under Beeb's avator list 700 calorie DDs, but didn't realize that she had done that during the weight loss phase of things. Thanks for clarifying that for me, Beeb!

Hi Fleur, I had DDs mostly 500 - 750 in WLM until maintenance. Now I sometimes go up to 850.

I use 600 as my DD number - and have from the beginning. Sometimes I am below that, but certainly not the majority of the time!

I think you will be just fine.

I stated out doing 600 to 700 but now I'm not really hungry so I end up about 300. I'll go over if I need to though.
