another newbie question:)

How often do you adjust your UD/DD caloric needs? I'm thinking every 10 pounds or so?

--On my second DD

Hi Bows! I asked the same question, and assumed the same thing about adjusting your calories when I first started. The experts told me not to adjust anything until you stop losing, and then re-evaluate. That surprised me, but you know, now it makes sense. We don't want to continue to restrict downward if we don't have to. Our bodies are getting used to being fed well every 2nd day, and learning to burn more calories and release more fat. It sounds like many JUDDDers continue to lose at their original calories for many pounds lost.

Good. Once we've found an UD calorie number that will allow us to lose weight when it's combined with a low DD calorie number, it's a good idea to go with it as long as it will do the trick. For most of us, we don't have all that good of metabolisms in the first place. And when you lower calories and hold them down lower than they need to be over an extended period of time, for some of us.. they don't seem to pop back to a faster burn rate very well. So we keep that big spread going, hoping to keep that calorie number pounded up as high as it can be made to function! (Plus it's nice to be able to eat more for as long as it lasts. LOL)

Thanks so much SoHappy and LoCarbGal for clearing that up for me! YAY for more calories for longer How long did it take you both to find that number of UD calories that worked for you?

I'm still using my originally calculated UD calories. I'm only 13 pounds into JUDDD and I hope to stay at these calories (even if it's hard some days to get them in!) as long as possible.

I'm starting my third year of JUDDD, so it's been so long I hardly remember.

I was low carb for years but never really lost much weight on it. Very high fat, so high calories, but no appetite suppression, so I suppose I just ate too much. The longer I was on low carb the more unhappy and out of sorts I became.

So then I started just *general low calorie dieting* and lost some decent weight that way. But it seemed like I'd lower calories dieting that way, and then eventually my metabolism would slow down to that calorie level and settle in, so I'd have to go lower still. Not a good way to stimulate your metabolism to improve at the same time you're losing weight!

I could never go back to eating low calories every day in order to lose weight. This way of doing it is so great, and having every second day to eat at a non-diet level is heaven.

I hope I see the same losses, LCG! I'm 42 and I think my hormones are starting to play tricks on me blah! This WOE might just be the key!

Yes, our stats are very similar! I've been so pleased that my LC stall has been broken, and I'm happy with my JUDDD losses. I'm so very happy eating this way! What freedom! It'll be fun to watch each other's progress and cheer each other on!

It sure will, LCG! SoHappy, I have done LC for years on and off (mostly off) and have found that with the Cerebellar Ataxia that I have, I feel best when following LC so I plan to continue it on my UDs! I'm so excited to see results for the first time in a LONG time, and I'm thrilled to be back in LCF! The support is awesome

Bows, our stats aren't too terribly different either. I weighed more than you when I started, and I just turned 40. You can do this! I have lowered my calories a few times, but I'm not known for being the most patient person around. In my case, my losses seem to slow about every 25 pounds or so. Some can lose more than that without having to lower. YMMV.

I also lowered them too quickly once, and stalled. I actually had to eat MORE to get the weight moving again. What an awful predicament to be in! Only on JUDDD!

Going from eating 1200 cals/day while LC'ing to eating 2250 yesterday was a *shock* lemme tellya and since I plan on sticking to LC during UDs, I can see cheesecake and hamburgers in my future!

I felt it after a couple of weeks, but then my thyroid crashed and I haven't been able to get it back, so I'm a bad example. I've read several reports from other JUDDDers and sometimes it's within a few down days, but can take up to a couple of months.

I only lowered DD calories and that was probably after the first 25-30 pounds. At this point in time I don't do any type of strict count on UDs. I may have to at some point, but between the appetite suppression and still being over-weight for my height I can be full with out worrying that I will go way over my UD calories. JUDDD is just an amazing WOE! I've lost more than 45 pounds on JUDDD (first 10 lbs were on LC) since the end of March and I was only dieting every other day.

After 10 weeks, I don't know that I've felt amazing changes, except that my energy levels seem to be improving. On the other hand, I haven't had my cholesterol or blood pressure checked lately, so there may be things going on that I don't know yet.

I was kind of hoping that it would have an impact on my case of plantar fasciitis (like maybe it a reduction in inflammation would reduce the pain), but I haven't seen that. Of course, maybe losing another 50 lbs would do the trick!
