Playing with the calculator
 
Bit surprised at what I just found while playing with the Juddd calorie calculator.

I'd only really looked at the calculator at 50% maintenance levels. I thought I'd check out 55% and 60% too.....I had expected that both DD and UD numbers would increase - WRONG:dunno: while my DD number goes up, it seems that my UD number will stay at 1537 and even get lower the older I get! Oh well, at least I know now!

I was able to jump into JUDDD at maintenance levels only because I'd lost weight in the last few months from unplanned stomach surgeries. Not the ideal way to lose weight, and I'm healthy again now:), but JUDDD seems like the perfect way to maintain.:love:

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, just surprised:cool:

As your body heals, you may be able to raise your UD calories with enough time. Some of us have been able to enjoy much higher UD calories in maintenance than the low calories it took to lose weight.

Example, the calculator is giving me 1650 UD calories in 60% maintenance, but I go over this by 200 - 600 calories all the time. It's giving me 990 calories on DD in 60% maintenance, but I tend to stay 700 - 850.

I suppose a person could also borrow from those raised DD calories and apply to UD too, as another option...

Jan, I believe that Pat, So Happy, has been able to push up her UD calories over time.

That is what I am trying to do too. I seldom count on my UDs but am pretty tight on my DDs. If I see an upward trend instead of maintaining on the scales I pull back a bit on my UDs too.

All will be what will be over time. Who knows what we can get out bodies to do with a little TLC and a lot of JUDDD?
