Wt loss mode question

Hi everyone ,

Well I started on Juddd back in april but instead of losing have been gaining do to many events, over eating, getting sick with bad cold etc... The good news I have finally settled down and my appetite is more under control. I was 143 and I am now 158!!!! yikes. I hadn't been to Dr J site for a while and decided to recalculate my calories.

I am 5'2, light exercise (I do more)158. for 20-35% wt loss mode I should eat between 407 -712 cals on down days and 2030 on high days. then i started to think... Do i have to pick a wt loss mode percentage and only follow that number. For example, can I do a dd on monday with 610 cal, then wed 500 cal then friday 712 cals? I know some of us have had the discussion of staying within the wt loss mode during trips ect... For those of you that may have read the book, did Dr. J say we need to only stay within ONE wt loss mode or can we pick and choose depending on how hungry we are feeling that day?

Personally I perfer to do 700 cals a day. I have a hard time sticking with 500.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

You can bounce around. Or you can set a goal average DD and stay as close to it as you can. Staying towards the higher end of Dr J's range will probably mean a somewhat slower rate of loss. But, if it also means you feel good while losing, and helps you stay motivated, then - hey - it's all good. Life is a journey.

Weight loss is a journey. Once that old JUDDD magic starts percolating inside you, you can revisit your DD calories and make adjustments if you choose.

Personally, - and I am still experimenting - I think bouncing with higher and lower DDs (all staying at or below Dr J' calculated max) shakes things up and keep weight loss moving.

Kirstin, I hear you. I am drafting a thread about bouncing around and the art of timing your meals. Will post it as soon as I can. I think both of those are very important components of the IF/CRON experience that we maybe should discuss more than we usually do.

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.

I have kept a sticky note in my phone of all the 5% calorie levels since I found judddd.
I aim for at or below 25% usually, but give myself complete permission to go up by increments on down days if I need it. Usually hormonal. But having those stair steps (for me they are 90 cal each 5%).
Then I don't necessarily jump all the way to 35% level, and have more control of my choices. An extra 90 or 180 cal meal can make a real difference on a rough day, and then I haven't jumped off a food cliff.

thank you b lou and Nancy for your input!! I feel much better now knowing that my up day cals were too low and since i gained the weight i can eat more! I will do my best to keep my dd's low now that i know i have more calories to eat the next day. Hopefully thats a better motivator for me. I thought before i should aim for 1500 on my up days.

Good to know that i can change my dd cals as needed! because as you said b lou someitmes all we need is an extra few cals!
