Or should I not factor in excercise and go with the 360/1801?

I believe you originally said 2068/414, and thought it would be difficult to eat that much, right? For light/no exercise your numbers are 1796/359. If you don't have a problem with being hungry (or hungier than you can stand), I'd stick with the 20%. Depending on how long you've been JUDDDing, you may have 500 on DDs for two weeks to get used to the extreme calorie restriction. No more than 1796 on UDs, however. Hope that helps!

Awesome... For some reason I can't get that calculator to work right. Maybe because I tried to do it from a cellphone. Thanks for your help! Today was my first day, I ended up starting with a down day as yesterday I got a bit away from my normal plan. 1796 I should be able to manage with no problem I would think.

Hi!
Iím brand new hereÖ But a friend (Flutter) recommended this site! Thanks girlie!

A quick little bit about me: I started the South Beach Diet in 2007 and did great. Lost weight, lowered my cholesterol, got in shape starting with C25K and even maintained well. But after having to have surgeries on both of my hips (over a 2 year period of time) I gained everything back, and after several unsuccessful attempts at re-starting SB, Iíve decided to change it up and try JUDDD.

Iím 42 years old, and at my highest weight and biggest jeans ever Ė 179 lbs/ size 16.
My hips have recovered well, and Iím back to P90X. So with a hard workout 5-6 days a week, the calculator says I should be doing 2644/529 on up days/down days respectively. Holy cow! Thatís a lot of calories on an up day! On a good SB P1 day, I have trouble hitting 1000; and Iím used to around 1200-1300 per day regularly. This will be interesting.

My first down day was Wednesday and I did ok with 505 calories. Here we go!!!

Scarlett, you are off and running. Those do look like a lot of calories but that is a tough work out I know.

You might be happier (or at lose more quickly ) if you select the next level down, I think it is moderate. On the other hand you can start with the higher numbers and if you lose okay then it is a win, win situation.

Welcome Scarlett!!! I know you will love it! Flutter has done amazing on JUDDD, so I'm sure she will be able to help you with anything.

Your numbers do sound high(ish). Most of us do 20%, unless we have a job that requires physical labor or run marathons, etc. I have heard that the workout you're doing is very difficult, so like Kissa said, you can try the higher numbers and see if that works.

Thanks girls!
Even if I select 'moderate' exercise, it still comes to 2376/475. Which I guess, is a little better, but still sounds crazy to me. And that's all at 20%... It won't go below 2000 unless I select 'little or no' exercise.

My brain wants to round it all to 500/2000 anyway. How important is it to stick close to the recommended numbers? I don't see a problem (so far) with 500 cal down days, but I am betting it will be tough on most days to get 2000 unless I'm pigging out on pizza on a regular basis. LOL

You may surprise yourself at how pleasant those extra calories become. It is that big gap between the UD and DD calories that sets off the JUDDD magic. So do your best and have some chocolate, (or a glass of wine ).

Scarlett! Glad to have you with us. How wonderful of Flutter to let you know about our wonderful JUDDD world - but that's our Flutter...wonderful!

You're off to a great start. Those numbers do sound quite high for your current weight, even with a heavy duty workout. Are you very tall? I just want to make sure you start out with the right numbers so you can hit the ground running IYKWIM.

I agree with the others about your numbers being pretty high. I'm about your age, weigh a little less, and am tall, and I only get 1750 for UD with the "little or no exercise" option. I can't remember what I get with exercise though.

I also agree that you could try the higher numbers and see how they work. If you lose well, that's great! If not, you could always go to the light exercise, or the no exercise calculation.

I'm trying this again

Hi everyone,
I was trying this program back in November 2012 and did really well with it. On my DD I was fine, but on my UD, in my mind, I could have anything and
everything I wanted. I know that was wrong, but I'm going to try this again
and actually write everything down. I think that's where I messed up the first time. Keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer. I only want to lose 25 and it seems like these 25 are bound and determined to hold on to me.

back to JUDDD, Tammy.

I'm absolutely sure that those 25lbs are giving you that message, but they're wrong. They're bats that don't want to be turfed out of their snug roost. They'd say anything to deter you. You already know how well you can live with JUDDD so it sounds like it may be the time for you to implement phase 2 in which you manage your UDs as well as you do your DDs.

WOE: JUDDD
Hello everyone! Another JUDDD newbie here.

I'm so happy and excited to have found this WOE, and I think it will work really well for me! Until discovering JUDDD, I was feeling a little bit trapped thinking that LC was the only way for me to lose weight. I know that I lose weight on LC, but, if I'm being honest, I pretty much hate the food! I kept putting off going back to it because the thought of eggs & meat made me feel .

Anyway, I'm just wrapping up my first down day, and it went really well. I took in just a bit under 500 calories. I've been very inspired by reading the posts on this board, and I look forward to seeing how this WOE works out for me. It's nice to meet you all!

Hi everyone. Another JUDDD newbie here! I have been doing HCG since January and have lost close to 30 pounds (29.6) I want to lose another 10 pounds, but am getting sick of HCG and am under a lot of stress right now, so switching to JUDDD.
Background on me:
I have 2 babies (oldest just turned 2) so I am lifting them all the time. My DS (2) loves when I dead-lift him. How can 30 pounds become that heavy? So I do it all day. Plus I carry my 1 year old a lot too.
I do not "exercise" at a gym, just lifting my kids. Should I count that as light exercise 1-3 times a week or go with no exercise? I think I should count it as exercise for the time being and see how it goes

So i'm slinking back in with a red face

JUDDD re-starter, been back on plan for a week now and due to weigh in tomorrow (Saturday). Fell off the JUDDD wagon late last year (long story which i won't bore you with, involving illness - my own, and death my m-i-l).

Now feels like a good time to start to get sorted out again.

Reptogirl! I think JUDDD is a great way to lose a significant amount. For me it has been just as fast as Atkins was. My start weight was pretty close to yours a year and a half ago, and I'm still looking for another 70 or so to get to goal. And with JUDDD, I know I will. Good luck and let us know how you're getting along. There's lots of threads to post on and get to know all these wonderful people.

WOE: <20 net carbs/day
Start Date: May 12 2014
Hi everyone, I've spent today reading a bazillion medical articles and trying to get informed on JUDDD. I really need to take the plunge.

10 years ago, when I was 15, I lost a ton of weight (like 40 pounds -- I went from 170 to 130) by near-fasting pretty much every other day -- I just started doing it and it really worked, even though I felt terrible all the time because I was a stupid teen who didn't make proper food choices for the calories I did eat, so I was literally starving. I eventually regained it all and about 20 pounds extra too. At 190 lbs and 5'2 " it's beyond obvious that I have to lose weight.

A couple of years ago I lost like 15 pounds just on Atkins Induction phase, so I know my body responds really well to low-carb, but that's just unsustainable for me, especially because I live in a culture where animal protein is really de-emphasized. I know I can't commit to it.

I'm hoping I can sustain a JUDDD lifestyle at 25 now by making the right decisions, and eating low-glycemic-index foods on the Down Days. I think I won't go extremely low carb at the beginning, unless of course I don't get results -- aware this is somewhat trial-and-error.

I'm tired of being enslaved to food, and I think this might finally work out for me, because it doesn't have that "I'll be deprived forever" feeling. I keep reading ("remember that you get to eat the next day").

Anyway, prepare to see me a lot on these boards and appreciate so much the kindness and support I've already observed

Welcome, Olive.

A number of JUDDDers express the wish that they'd known about this WOE and how to do it much earlier in their lives so it's fortunate that you know about it and have a good plan to experiment with from the outset.

Although some people mix and match JUDDD with other WOE such as Primal or South Beach (amongst others), it's personal preference as to where your calories come from (so, low carb or moderate carb etc.).
