5/2 - March 3 - 9, stop on in everyone!
 
So here we are JUDDDing along with 5/2! I find it a bit easier then just JUDDD - on my UD I ate too much because the next day would be a DD :dunno: I find 5/2 better for me because I do not over- eat the day before.

My #'s are 1528 and 535, what are yours?

Have a great Sunday Everyone! :heart::shake::heart:

I'm doing 1750-1800/200-400. Easy as pie. Hmmm, pie sounds good. :D

leonak 03-03-2013 09:08 AM

Speaking of pie - just found out this morning DH won a pie from Perkins! :jumpjoy:

Kissa 03-03-2013 09:49 AM

I am doing 500 and whatever. Sometimes is is under 500 hundred.

Today will be around 1,500. Yesterday was a lot more.

I aim for Monday and Thursday DDs

Librarygirl 03-03-2013 09:50 AM

I'm enjoying it too! Today is my 2nd DD, as I've just been winging it this week. Next week I plan to get in two DDs before the weekend. :) I don't really know what my numbers are supposed to be? According to JUDDD it would be 1870, 370...

If I go by JUDDD numbers, I should only eat around 1500 a day with two 500 DDs for the same amount of calories...yuck lol...I might try 1600, and try to do 600 for breafast and lunch, 1000 for dinner. :D

Shari4 03-03-2013 10:18 AM

This is my 2nd DD, too! I'm doing 500 DD's & 1550 UD's Seems to be working for me! :jumpjoy:

Librarygirl 03-03-2013 10:23 AM

Yours is to maintain, and mine is to lose...so if you can maintain at that, I should definitely lose at 40 lbs heavier. :)

Are your UD calories high enough? Or is that what you've been using all along?

Librarygirl 03-03-2013 11:24 AM

No, but I figured out the weeks calories with 1870 UD (4) and 370 DD (3), and with only 2 DDs, I'll need to have 1500-1600 UDs (and 2 500 DDs). Really it should be closer to 1500. On alternate weeks, if I follow the weekly calories of JUDDD, with 4 DDs, then I would only be able to eat 1218 5 days, with 2 500 DDs.

Shari4 03-03-2013 11:25 AM

Got cha!! :)

Librarygirl 03-03-2013 11:33 AM

At 2000 calories a day, you would wind up with nearly 1600 a day average (with 2 500 DDs), and would hardly lose. I believe you should be eating a good bit more, since you're maintaining (than 1500).

I did the same math you did Library girl and we're about the same weight. I will be starting with 1600 UD and 350 DD hoping to LOSE, NOT maintain. Tomorrow is my first DD. I will be doing Mon and Thursday DDs.

Carly 03-03-2013 01:36 PM

I really hope this works for weightloss. It would be awesome. I'm watching with excitement. I still think I will gain with only 2 DDs since I don't always want UD to be 1590.

mom23kids 03-03-2013 01:53 PM

I'm not doing 5:2 right now, but will be following along to see how it works for everyone :)

You could add 200-300 on one UD and have 1290 one UD, etc. You don't necessarily have to do the same UD calories all 5 days. :)

What is your TDEE or whatever it's called lol (calories needed to maintain)? If you're at 1600 to maintain, you could eat 2000 5 days a week with 500 DDs only twice a week. :)

I'm positive it will work. I don't believe it would work with not counting or UUADs, like I was doing with eod, but definitely if we stick to these calories there's no way it won't work. :shake:

Same - very interested to follow progress of everyone.

Flossyliz 03-03-2013 03:20 PM

I think I'll be joining you be default next week.
UD tomorrow and I can't DD till Thursday, so looks like a 5:2 to me!

Librarygirl 03-03-2013 03:29 PM

I have decided if I have a high UD, for whatever reason, I'll add in a 3rd DD. That should do the trick. :)

What a great idea :shake:

I will keep this in mind, never know when it will come in handy - like Easter and birthdays! :high5:

Thanks ever so much!

BaileysGirl 03-03-2013 04:21 PM

Library - figure mine please! Im so lost! Would love to try 5:2 but no idea how much to eat. Im 35, 5'7. Currently 192 doing 1900/400.

I've been reading 5:2; but, I'm not finished yet. According to Dr. Mosley, I should be eating a lot more on UD's. But, I guess I'm still not used to being at goal & am afraid to eat that many calories! :dunno:

Scalestepper, if I do 2000 calories 5xa week & 500 2x a week, the average would be 1571.43 daily. According to 5 different websites my TDEE is 1541. Are you using those recommended calories?

Librarygirl 03-03-2013 06:02 PM

Ok, Natasha, you can have 1560 5 days, and 500 DDs (2 days) according to my calculations. That is, 1900 x 4, + 400 x 3, - 1000 (for the DDs)/5 = 1560. :)

If you ate 1900 a day, plus 2 DDs of 500 each, you would average 1500 calories a day. :) With a little wiggle room. ;)

Shari, I haven't calculated an up number other than what I got from the online calculator, normal calories 1932, 20% weight loss mode 386. Do I need to take a percentage of normal calories for ud?

I'm not up to 2000, it varies on dd but with 500 or a little less 2x -my average calories to date this week is about 1200/day. Today was my 6th day of my 4th week.

I haven't finished the book either but am anxious to.

I almost had a trainwreck yesterday, I decided to do a 24 hour fast until dinner last night on a dd, then today I was so really_ really_ hungry, I didn't get satisfied and back to normal until this afternoon,

ETA daily calores, etc this week ..

Thank you Cindy! Is that a little high? I'm 70 and have low thyroid and haven't begun exercising yet. My weight loss was really slow on Atkins and so much faster so far with 5/2.

Librarygirl 03-03-2013 06:33 PM

I was doing the calculations for Shari, who is at maintenance and she needs about 1500 a day. I'm not sure what you need in order to lose....ok, again according to my calculations at 1932 x 4, + 386 x 3, - 1000 (for 2 DDs)/5 = 1577 cals per day, 5 days a week. That is for weight loss. Hope that helps!

Thank you! :hugs: Im trying to decide to stay on Juddd or do this 5:2. Decisions, decisions! I guess with these numbers in mind I could possibly do 5:2 if needed for an eventful week.
