Help on first DD

I am doing my first DD today and have run into a few questions during the course of the day.

I used the JUDDD calculator to figure out my UD and DD calories but I am not sure if the 20% DD number (310) is the one to use for the two weeks of induction or if 500 calories should be used for the induction phase?

I am only looking to lose a few pounds so after induction should I still continue to use 20% as my DD number until I reach my goal or is it ok to bump the DD up to the 40% or 45% wt loss/maintenance mode calories?

Is it best to go 36 hours after the last meal on an UD and the first meal on the next UD?

Thank you for your help.

A couple of these issues might be covered in http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ju...nside-see.html

It's quite late in UK so I can't give a fuller answer but hope the link helps. :)

:welcome:! You can do it either way, whichever is most comfortable for you. We have people here who have done well both ways. It's one of the things we love most about JUDDD - how flexible it is, and can be worked around most people's preferences and body chemistries.

36 hours between the end of eating on UD and the beginning of eating on the next UD is the idea. It doesn't have to be exactly 36, but that's the general idea.

I responded in the other thread.

When you reach goal you can up your calories to maintenance level or reduce DDs. You can do 500 for the first 2 weeks, but if you don't need the full 500 you don't have to use them.
