I suggest you begin by eating 700 cal/DDs and 1700 cal UDs. The 700 cal will get you below RMR and should activate SIRT1 on DD. On UD you have to eat enough to turn off SIRT1 or, as Yennie says, you are just doing another low-cal diet.

Skipping JUDDD induction and jumping in with both feet is fine. Many of us begin above or below 500 cal/DDs. Many of us start at 500 and stay there - losing steadily - for months.

On Dr J's website, enter your info and try the different exercise levels/weight loss percentages. If 700 calories shows up as maintenance over and over, you may eventually want to tune your DD calories down a bit. But, starting at 700 (as long as UDs remain well above your RMR) should be a great beginning.

GOAL 10/3/12
Still at goal 2/6/13
Changed to LCHF after becoming diabetic in 9/13 (Lost 15 more pounds).
STILL below goal 11/21/15

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.
