Sorry -- newbie with ANOTHER question

Guys, I've been looking for this here on this site (and Googling), but just can't seem to find the answer, maybe not usiing right search terms.

Once you begin losing weight on JUDDD, right that you should alter (reduce) the caloric amount on Up Days? As in, someone who goes from say 170 to 150 pounds, will need less calories even if their activity level doesn't change? Is this a gradual process of adjustment?

And if so, wouldn't the Down Day amount be gradually reduced to as a percentage of the Up Day amount?

My first go around with JUDDD, I would wait until I was stalled for atleast a month then go back to the calculator. I figured if I was still losing at certain levels it was fine. Most of the time the adjustment isnt a huge adjustment in calories so unless your stalled a while dont mess with progress!!!

I only really lowered DDs. UDs took care of themselves. I just simply could not consume the volume I once could before JUDDD. I also lowered DDs to 150 so I could eat a bit more on UD if I pleased.

I've gradually lowered my UDs very slightly, and I mean very. When I re-calculated and lowered them to what the calc says, I stalled. So I've kept them up and lowered DD to what the calc says, and losses restarted. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
