low carb UD calories: appetite vs. metabolism

Hi, I'm new here and new to JUDDD, but I'm a long time low carber. I'm doing a low carb version of JUDDD because I'm a firm believer in the health benefits of low carb, though it no longer causes me to lose weight. So I'm not going by Dr. J's book.

I've been at this for just over a week and now the UD calories (from Dr. J's calculator) seem like too much. I'm just not hungry. Should I eat what is considered normal calories on an UD in the hope of keeping my metabolism up or should I just eat until satisfied?

I know how to increase my appetite. That's easy. One serving of something carby and I'll be a raving, unstoppable food monster all over again. I'd rather not go there.

You definitely want to eat enough to shock and pump up your metabolism on UD. For you, that may mean eating to satiety or it may mean eating a bit more than you really want.

Dr J says UDs range from Resting Metabolic Rate +- 14%...depending on each individual's metabolism. The calculation on his website is an average that works for most people...but not for all people. I encourage you to calculate your RMR and experiment.

I find my weight loss stalls if I eat at or below my RMR too many UDs in a row. I lose best if I eat RMR + about 100 calories most UDs. These days I deliberately bounce from slightly below RMR one day to a few hundred above (which is what Dr J's website calculates for my UD) the next UD.

One of the many great things about JUDDD is it encourages us to get to know ourselves better.

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!

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

That's very interesting Nancy, thank you.

You could also try eating high calorie/low carb foods to get your calories in. Nuts, butter, cream, cheese, avocadoes, nut butters--you get the picture. Some of those give you more calories than a carb-laden goodie, without making you feel overstuffed.

That's a good point Dawn. I've kept some food on hand that is suitable for either UDs or DDs. May be I need completely different foods for the two days. Normal fat and low fat for DDs but high fat for UDs. You're right, it's pretty easy to put away large numbers of calories once you get into those foods. Thanks.

Elburn, I found several online RMR calculators and took the average. It is not as precise a doctor's test, but it is cheaper.

Yep...I certainly have many separate DD and UD foods.

Yesterday was one ounce of baked chicken and oven roasted veggies (I Tb of oil making up the bulk of the calories). Today is reheated baked chicken simmered in a garlic parmesan cream sauce and topped with sauteed veggies.

Warning: that UD meal is so rich it is easy to eat less, be totally satisfied, and (raises hand) not eat as many cals as you planned.
