Mixing it up -- again!
 
I've been maintaining pretty well with daily calories around 1550-1700.

I'm pretty sure I want to go back to rotations, but don't want to have low DDs due to my chilblains (which have been nonexistent while I haven't been fasting). I went to the calculator and found my 50% calculation would be 1733/867. That's doable, but I'm thinking if I'm maintaining well with daily calories over 1500, I might try to average that. I could do 2000/1000 which would be more calories on BOTH UDs and DDs, but still average 1500 per day.

What say the JUDDD BUDDDs? I'll probably try it out at 2000/1000, and then reduce if it's not working, but thought I'd see if anyone has a reason for me NOT to try it this way.

Are you kidding?!? 2000/1000 sounds fabulous to me! I hope that's the perfect solution for you, Dawn!

LiLi914 08-16-2013 02:08 PM

I agree with Melinda. That sounds like a perfect combination to tryout. If it doesn't work out you can always readjust. Good luck Dawn!

Carly 08-16-2013 02:11 PM

I say go for it! Those would be awesome numbers. Are you worried about SIRTs or not really?

rosejim 08-16-2013 02:30 PM

Sounds good to me! Hope it works for you, keep us posted.

Maybe it's not a coincidence that light exercise 1-3 times a week and 50% mode for 5'8", 40 y.o. and 150#'s comes out to 1980 / 990... Yikes, that's not much of a rounding up! :)

I wonder if the chilbains comes from weather or repeated inflammation / dis-inflammation, so the fasting would exacerbate that somehow? But not sure if that makes sense if you were not experiencing problems with a steady calorie intake.

I never really seemed to get the benefits of the SIRTs anyway, so I'm not too concerned about those little guys. :laugh:

I thought it was weather-related, but then when the weather warmed up, I went back to fasting and they came back, even with +100* heat here in the valley. :dunno: That's why I'm hoping the higher DDs will help.

I didn't check the calculator for my age and height with exercise, since I'm not really exercising right now. How funny that it's that close to what I'm contemplating!

That was what I figured. I really benefit from the SIRTs flowing so I like to keep my DDs really low. I'll be back to 5:2 soon and will do 2 DDs under 300, because that seems to keep them going for me, but I have felt awesome, awesome, awesome since going back to EOD. Part of that is summer- long day light, warm weather and back to exercising 5-7x a week, but a good part of it is eod I think. This round of WLM I feel a decrease in pain- part of it is the warm weather, but eod has helped increase my SIRT saturation I'm sure so I think there has been some decrease in inflammation.

Sounds great Dawn! I hope you go for it and see what that does for you! You really are a JUDDD rockstar and such an inspirations to me. Thank you!:hugs:

I'd say you benefited. 100+ lbs lost is definitely a benefit, and your ease of maintenance. SIRTs are working, for sure.:high5:

The numbers sound great! I hope I can do those numbers when I get to goal. :D

Dottie 08-16-2013 04:40 PM

I'm nowhere near maintenance, so here's a :shake: for luck!

windygap 08-16-2013 05:45 PM

It sounds great Dawn. I say go for it.

KeirasMom 08-16-2013 05:57 PM

Alrighty then! I'm shooting for 1000 calories today. It's now a down day, haha, if you can call 1000 calories a down day!! :hyst:

:rofl::heart: LOVE!!!!!!!!!!! I SO hope this is what works best for you! It would be fabulously easy to live on forever, huh? Wow! :love:

Librarygirl 08-16-2013 06:36 PM

I think I read in the book that Dr. J now does about 1000 on his DDs.:love:

calichris 08-17-2013 08:24 AM

Fabulous plan, Dawn! :up: My gut feeling is that will work brilliantly for you.

Kimmietoo 08-17-2013 08:50 AM

Sounds fantastic, my friend! Have you and the other maintainers sharing how you do this keeps those of us in WLM so informed and motivated. I am so thankful for my JUDDD BUDDDs!:heart:

Maybe too new to know....
 
but OMG does that sound like a fabulous life!:) It's so worth trying.
Your body will tell you pretty quickly if it's the right thing to do.
Looks to me like all the JUDD BUDDS are in agreement!

KeirasMom 08-17-2013 06:00 PM

I just got home from grocery shopping, thinking "I'm starting DDs again; I'd better pick up some low calorie items!" At the store, I realized, I can eat very well for 1000 calories. No need for special items! Boy, I sure hope this works. :cool:

Flutter 08-17-2013 07:57 PM

Yes, Dawn, you should be just fine with 1000 cal "down" days! I wanna be you!!! LOL!

jacquelinejolie 08-17-2013 10:06 PM

Ooh, I so hope this works for you - sounds like such a simple way of eating!

Lori_:) 08-19-2013 06:45 AM

Sounds awesome Dawn! Can't wait to hear how it works for you. :shake:

I've been trying to keep up with all of you, though not doing much posting since I'm not doing JUDDD right now. I'm dabbling with 16/8 right now to see if I can lose some baggage. I've been maintaining quite nicely, but that darn scale number is WAY too high! The boot camp is "shifting the sands" so I look and feel thinner but the scale doesn't show it. :annoyed:

Keep us posted Dawn!

elphie124 08-19-2013 08:47 AM

Awesome! That would be my ideal maintenance plan if it were not for those pesky SIRTs. 1000 calorie DDs sound amazing!

Hope this works well for you!
