Recalculating Calories

I was just reading through some of the old threads, and I saw a recommendation to figure your calories based on 0 activity/exercise, regardless of your actual activity level... If I do that, my DD calories are 350 and my UD calories are about 1700.. I think that'd probably help me lose faster, but - blah! I think I'll give it a shot for a few rotations.. although this means I'll actually have to count calories on my UD which will be difficult since I tend to throw things in a pan as I cook..
Any tips?

Mine are actually a bit lower than that, but I stay at about 150 calories on DD so I don't have to count as closely on UD (I figure I can carry over the 200 calories if I estimated incorrectly) since somethings are just harder to count and I don't want to have to be so careful every day. I think having a big spread is important too.

When I started, my UD calories were more than I could eat unless going to a restaurant, but now on occasion I go a little over my UD limit and it doesn't seem to impact me negatively.

I agree that it is wise to calculate with no activity and see how it works since a lot of us over estimate what we really burn in terms of exercise. Plus I want the exercise I do to jump start my losses not just make up for eating more. Does that make sense

Yes, it makes total sense! And cranking down DD to make up for more on UD also makes sense. I think I could live on those little 25 calorie almond milk/strawberry/walden farms chocolate syrup drinks I have for DD breakfast - maybe I'll try a very very DD and see where that takes me. It'll have to be next DD though - I'm STILL trying to finish off that pot of low-cal chili-dog soup, lol - It's good, but it ended up being a lot more than the 7 servings I calculated - and hence even lower calorie than I thought..
