net calories ?

hi everyone

newbie here, i just started JUDDD on monday...so far it's been pretty manageable!

i'm wondering though -- i've been working out every day and burning about 400-500 calories during my workouts.

do i take that into account when i calculate my daily calories?

for example, wednesday (DD) i consumed about 450 calories -- but i burned 500 while working out. should i have actually eaten 950 calories to make up for the 500 i burned?

thanks for the help!

btw: my DD calorie limit is 467, according to Dr. Johnson's calculator.

Personally, I don't.
I figure the calorie deficit is better for me (on DD's especially)

Need to contact LCF?

Everyone has an opinion. Take what you need and leave the rest.

Generally I would say most people don't, but we do have a few big exercisers here, training for marathons etc and they do use their exercise calories sometimes.

Most of us err on the safe side, as it is easy to overestimate how hard you work out. Some of the counters are unreliable too.

Embrace a little hunger. It is the sign of healing.

Relax, rotate, reduce, rejoice.

Down Days are the cement that hold JUDDD together.

I'm training for a half marathon, and I'll say sometimes yes, sometimes no. On a typical training day, I don't usually....but once I get up to 6 miles or more, I sometimes need to "fuel" during the run. The longer the run the more fuel I need. So, I don't "subtract" those from my allotted total calories.

I also usually have a protein shake, a banana or coconut water afterwards as a "recovery" tool - I don't count that against my total either if it is a really long run.

So - all in all for really strenuous workouts, I may consume back half of the calories I burn in endurance nutrition, which is frankly really critical for me. But - for an average workout day I don't add any back in.

Then again I do allot myself 600 calories for DD's so mine aren't quite as low as yours.

If you want something badly enough, you'll find a way. If you don't you'll find an excuse.

I encourage you to judge how you feel after exercising. Always have something on hand to gobble/drink if needed. That way you don't get weak or shaky and grab something/anything available.

Judge how you feel and your weight loss rate. Over time, you will know what your body needs to be healthy and lose weight.

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.

I don't subtract the calories burned (sometimes over 800), HOWEVER, I have raised my DD and UD numbers to fuel myself better, and have continued to lose weight. There is no way I could enjoy the level of exercise that I do without proper nutrition, which in turn makes me feel wonderful.
I am in maintenance (still new at it), so I cannot say whether or not this approach will work for you. How far are you from your ideal weight?

When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top....

Goal Weight achieved 02/25/2012 on JUDDD- and still losing!
