Well unsure if that is your number for sure.. go back just to be safe and make sure that you marked the boxes that say "inches" when you input your height.. and most important to make sure the box marked "pounds' and most folks here leave it at the 20% showing lil or no exersize to get there starting numbers..I am 45 and 5 feet 9 inches.. actually im 5.8 and half but it dont show for that so i choose 5.8 to go off of.. and at 211 when i started my number was 2027 and 404.. i did notice that the older you are the number for an UD is reduced lol..

I see you are coming from lc. To avoid an initial weight bounce it is probably best to continue to avoid refined/starchy/sweet carbs. And, if you have any trigger foods, avoid them for now too.

So, add extra butter, add extra cheese. Cook with cream. Throw in some extra leafy vegetables. Eat a bigger breakfast and lunch than you are used to. Throw in a few extra slices of bacon. If you cannot make it all the way to your calculated UD calories, get as close as you can. I found I had to plan my meals and work my way up. But, once I got started I did start thinking of ways to increase UD calories. Strange, but for some of us eating UP is not intuitive. (Of course, some of us take to UDs like cute baby ducks on a pond.)

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

Wine! Chocolate. Peanut butter. A cookie. It all depends how you want to reach your UD calories. I don't watch carbs anymore and will often have a couple glasses of wine at the end of the day, and never seem to be too far under.

Ditto the wine and chocolate. I started using that for UDs when I have extra calories at the end of the day. I've been enjoying 72% dark chocolate, just a couple squares with a glass of wine. It's not so sweet to start any cravings but it's a nice treat and healthy for you too.

And yes.....plan your day as best you can. When I first started I didn't do this and by the end of the day I'd have calories left.

I suggest you read this and YES, I also suggest you eat very close to those UD calories if you want JUDDD to work it's "best" magic for you.

YOU GOTTA EAT!!

And as far as getting to those calories, add some good fats to your cooking/beverages: olive oil, coconut oil, butter, full fat cheeses, etc. These will help you get to that UD calories ceiling really quick!

I feel you! My calculator had me at 2700 calories and I was asking the same question. I honestly haven't been able to figure out how to get that many calories in. I would suggest you try to get as close as you can, in my experience this week, I am STARVING on DD if I don't get enough calories on my UD. I did that Saturday because I was moving furniture and I think I got maybe 1700 in. Sunday I was ready to fight my cat for her dinner.

If you are coming in from LC, ease the carbs in if you decide to add any. If not you will get a water weight puff because your body is not used to carbs anymore.

Thanks for all the info. So far today with all my meals (alreay portioned out) my totals for the day are Calories 2,053 Fat 154.3 Carbs 26.2 Fiber 8.3 Protein 146.1

I think that's pretty good, except the fat in my opinion is too high. I would like it to be around 125g. Not bad for my first UD. Tomorrow will be my 2nd DD. Thinking I will make the cabbage/shrimp I saw in the Porn Thread

Melisa I wish I had your problem-I NEVER have trouble getting to my UDs, but they are about 1700, which, coming from low carb, is not so high.But I agree with gotsome and Beeb with adding fat, and adding chocolate ain't a bad idea either!!!

Have fun!

Be careful. When I started, I was having trouble getting my calories in, and when I asked about it, I was told it was OK to be under by a couple hundred. Then when I had trouble getting within 500 of my goal, I was told that was OK, too. Within two months, I found myself eating an average of 750 calories per day (1500 on UD, 0 on DD). I have been diligently eating all my calories every day now for a little over a week, and I have lost 2 more pounds, for a total of 20.

Lessons to be learned from this little escapade:
  • Pay attention to your calories
  • Pay attention to the "qualifications" of those giving advice
  • If the advice you've been given doesn't "feel" right, do some investigation
  • Understand that if you're going to let your calories go too low on the UDs, there won't be any "magic" and you might as well be doing any old low-cal diet

I don't think your numbers are wrong. I don't think MY numbers were wrong. I was just given some inaccurate advice by one or more well-meaning, but uninformed, persons.

It's like when you're low-carbing- they say if you don't pay attention, you can become a victim of "carb-creep" which is when your diet slowly, slowly becomes full of with carbs that you don't even realize you're eating. I had done something similar with the calories, but in the opposite direction. I had started out eating enough calories, then slowly dropped the calorie count down, down, down until my UDs were at 1500 and DDs were at 0.

I guess the point I was trying to make was not that I had stopped losing, but that I made a conscious effort to add 2500 calories per week, and I'm still losing. The whole idea behind JUDDD is to eat as many calories as you can (while still losing) every other day, and fast every other day, to keep the metabolism jumping. 750 calories a day isn't enough to make your metabolism hiccup, let alone jump!!

So, here is my most current chart- the red line is the day that I started adding calories. As you can see, it didn't make much of a difference. And if I can still lose while eating 2500 extra calories a week, then why shouldn't I? It's only going to make my maintenance more comfortable (I would imagine). The other thing is- if I need to cut calories in a month or three or six, then I have room to cut. If I'm at a bare-bones calorie level, what the heck do I do from there??

And THIS ^^^^ is why I say "YOU GOTTA EAT"! I have never been one to think that eating less is a good thing. JUDDD is one of those WOE that you need to eat and close to your calorie ceiling for it to work.

Has ALWAYS been my opinion!

I agree that if your UD calories are set right then you should try to eat up to them. There were some days where I wasn't sure I could do it either, but I seemed to find a way (wine adds up so quickly after all!, lol)

No need to go into starvation mode on JUDDD. We want to reach maintenance with all cylinders firing. Maybe then the calories can even be raised with great success, as some of us JUDDD Maintainers have experienced.
