How Often Do You Recalcuate Your Calories?

Hi JUDDDers. As a newbie (on 2nd UD today), I was wondering how often do you recalculate your allowed UD and DD calories? I don't want to be obsessive about it, but also want to give myself every chance to succeed.

I assume since I'll be losing steadily (like my optimistic attitude??) that my calories will be going down steadily too.

Just curious how you all handle this. Thanks!

I used to worry about the same thing. However some of the long-timers told me to leave them until I had to change them. So far I've lost quite a bit and have not lowered my UD or my DD.

Wishing you much JUDDD magic!

What NoWeigh said. As long as you are losing at a reasonable pace, don't worry about it. When weight loss slows or stops, and you have not changed anything, it is probably time to drop 'em.

After I lost 35 pounds and dropped from an average of 2 pounds/week to .5 - 1 pound/week I reduced my daily cals (DD and UD) by 50 cal. Chuckle, my hunger didn't even notice but my weight loss rate did.

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.

I've only lowered DDs and pretty much left UDs alone. If I don't eat out I dont really hit that UD number, but that's OK since I don't really need to anymore.
JUDDD changed my life. It transformed my health, gave me freedom and restored my confidence.

JUDDD is very simple, very livable and very flexible. JUDDD allows weight loss and life to happen simultaneously.

Thanks for your input, guys. You have made me feel more relaxed about it. I'll just keep going until the losses slow or stop. Great news!
