Question on % on Doc J. SIte

On the site where the calculator is.. it gives you an option to chose,20% weight loss and 25% weight loss and so on..my question is this.. if im trying to lose weight steady with great numbers of loss.. which would i choose? the 20 that it starts with? or is 35 % like 35% faster weight loss?? i notice that the down days number goes up higher the higher the percentage.. just courius,, i started my number at what was there which is 20%

The percentages are percentages of the "normal calories"- so if your normal
calories are at 2000- 20% would be 400, 25% would be 500, 30% would be
600 and so on. Theoretically, you should lose faster at 400 calories, than at
600 calories, for instance, so 20% would give you a faster rate of loss.

I can't help at all because I started at a DD/UD calorie number between 40/45% and lost at a wonderful pace so I'm thinking it really what will work for you. Start low and go higher if you feel you can.

What an adorable kitty!

Dr J must have been so deeply into CR and the rotation that he assumed the percentages were obvious and needed no explanation. By looking at the way the numbers changed, I was able to figure the pattern out. But - obvious? - I don't think so

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

He explains it pretty well right above the calculator on his web page...

Quote:
While it is still perfectly acceptable for you to continue eating 500 calories, or 20 percent of your regular calorie intake, on Down Days after the induction phase, many individuals find that eating up to 35 percent is easier to maintain over the long term...

When you have lost the amount of weight that you desire, you can maintain your weight by eating up to 50 to 60 percent of your normal calorie allowance on Down Days.
It always made sense to me that the percentages were of the UD number... especially since when you change the percentages, the UD number doesn't change; only the DD number does.
