How much protein do you get on UDs?

I'm not a low carber myself. I get around 40-50g on UDs and water fast on DDs. I was wondering if this is enough to prevent muscle loss? I don't really do cardio or strength training - just a few toning exercises here and there. If I walk long distances or cycle, do I need more?

I only count calories and never track other nutritional info.
I'd say it varies greatly depending on what I eat that day.
Some UDs I try to eat a protein bar around 1-2pm since I know I'm probably not getting enough overall.

I really don't know how much is necessary to prevent muscle loss. I do know that lately I've been really pushing to try and get as much as I can in on DDs, and I know that I probably get plenty most UDs, because I love meat, eggs, fish, PB.

Since making a concerted effort on the protein, I've been averaging between 50-75g on DDs and 100-120g on UDs. I've upped my calories slightly from the calculator numbers because I've been doing pretty intense Sprint 8 or Tabata sessions EOD, and want to make sure I'm feeding my body enough calories AND protein to maintain and hopefully gain some muscle tissue.

I'm not weighing this month at all until the 27th, but I know I'm losing fat because my clothes are getting baggy, I'm fitting into smaller sizes, and I can just see and feel it.

Taking a quick look at my last four Up Days, it looks like each day I am getting anywhere from 120-200 grams. I am 5'8".

Since the WHO standard is around 50 grams, I would think eating that much only every other day would not be good for maintaining your muscle.

I've been tracking my protein daily (UD and DD) and recording it on the daily weigh-in thread. Here's this month's:

11/01 - 146.4 - UD - 1984 - 68g
11/02 - 146.8 - DD - 566 - 55g
11/03 - 145.6 - UD - 2495 - 95g (PMS? Was sooo snacky!)
11/04 - 147.2 - DD - 599 - 72g
11/05 - 145.8 - UD - 2500? - 90g -TOM - Chilblains are really bad
11/06 - 147.4 - DD - 578 - 71g - TOM
11/07 - 145.8 - UD - 2012 - 54g - Tom
11/08 - 147.0 - DD - 524 - 61g - Tom
11/09 - 145.6 - UD - 2367 - 47g - Tom
11/10 - 146.6 - DD - 648 - 75g
11/11 - 146.0 - UD - 1987 - 93g
11/12 - 146.4 - DD - 612 - 66g
11/13 - 145.2 - UD - 1982 - 73g
11/14 - 146.8 - DD - 554 - 56g
11/15 - 146.0 - UD - 2006 - 111g
11/16 - 146.8 - DD - 607 - 58g
11/17 - 146.4 - UD - 2421 - 126g

I'm shooting for an "average" of at least 75 grams.

If you do a quick google search for protein needs or something similar, there is a lot of good information about how much protein you need to consume to prevent muscle loss. I chose to go between the two sets of guidelines I read since I'm not a body builder.

When I was doing EOD rotations I tried to make sure my average was at least 150g. At the beginning of JUDDD my protein dropped way off because of the DD's so I made sure my DD's were high protein, and my UD's were even higher to get to my average.

I think a lot of people on JUDDD focus on what they can now have, being unrestricted on UD's and don't pay attention to what they might be lacking because of the Fasting days and filling the UD's with calories that don't actually meet their needs, but maybe their cravings.

I've recently started having at least 1 quest bar every UD and sometimes 2.
That is definitely helping my protein intake.

This is a good thread for me. I'm looking back at my weightloss tracking site that I use and seeing some of the things that easily boost my protein intake (gotta watch the portions!)...egg white protein and protein powder added to smoothies, peanut butter, almonds, popcorn. I've really reduced my meat portions to keep down the calories. I'm seeing that I need to concentrate on my protein intake, for sure!
