If you're able to, it's actually better. Ideally, we would completely fast, but Dr. J. acknowledges that most people can't or won't do that, so 500 is allowed (or whatever number you get from the calculator). Several here have fasted completely on DDs.

Well, I will say it depends. I did the 2 week induction with 500 calorie shakes. I then went to my 350 calculator number but usually only about 220. I stopped losing. I raised the DD calories to 500 and started losing again.

Everyone is different so you will just have to try and see what works for you.

Give it a try and see. There is not reason you can't do lower, but if you find, like adillenal did that it's not working well just go back to a higher number.

I started fasting on DD for breakfast and lunch and then eat something light for dinner. It has been working for me and i feel great on DD. But like some of the more experienced JUDDDers have said, you have to find what works for you.

We are using DD eating to invoke calorie stress response (and fat burning, and inflammation reduction, and bumping up health).

The trick is to find out how low you can go, still feel good, and lose weight.

Some metabolism have to eat on DD in order to lose. Some can fast. Many DDs I do a modified fat fast (aiming for 500 cals/DD).

Within the 0 - 404 you get to experiment.

And, you may find yourself starving on some DDs. I get a famished DD every two or three weeks - I have no idea why. Others have reported them. On those days plan to eat a little more. They usually result in something resembling a whoosh.

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.
