Can you stay on the 500 cal down days for good?


I just wondered if anyone knows if it's o.k to stay doing JUDDD long term sticking to the 500 cal down days? i like doing it this way and like to keep things simple, i don't count properly on up days just in my head and make sure i don't overeat and try to eat healthy (most of the time) and i'd like to keep doing it this way instead of going into maintenance, is this possible?

thanks x

I've been maintaining well by eating 600 calorie DDs and pretty-much what I want on UDs. I've crept up 3-4 pounds in the last couple of months, and I know if I'd dial back the calories on UDs some, it'll come back down. I am still at or below my goal, though, so I'm not concerned yet. I intend to continue eating this way forever. The 600 calories are usually from the same few choices, so I don't have to give it much thought. I like it that way. I like the reward of my free UDs. That's very motivating to me.

I know someone that keeps her DD calories at 300 and adds the difference to her up day and is maintaining just fine. You have to try it and see if it works for you. I will probably do the same thing as I like simple too.

I think that its really my plan to do also.. I cant imagine goin back to just eating on a DD when i feel so dang good on a DD.. Like i have actual control over my body ya know?/. I do think that if i "feel " like eating on a DD in the future that i wont feel like i cant.. i will just take what ever comes my way on those speical times. Some one ask me recently if i think i can actaully keep this up for the rest of my life?? So my answer to them and you is.. sure , no problem. I dont feel deprived, so why would i ever stop doing it like this..

Start Date: JUDDD 1/1/12 + LCHF 12/1/13 (controlling diabetes)
Given the health benefits of low-cal alternate day eating, I plan to try to keep DDs low too.

Based on experience various people have reported (search for "How do I stop losing!?!?!" threads over the last year) - some people can stick to low DDs and maintain...some people have to tweek their DDs.

JUDDD is an experiment in self-learning. Look over your eating/losing log and plan experiments that apply to your personal metabolism.

If I can't stop losing by keeping low DDs and raising my UDs, I plan to raise DD calories one DD at a time (see if I can maintain while keeping most of my DDs low). Based on my losing history, one 800 cal DD/week may be enough to keep me in maintenance.

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.

If you are happy with this and still getting the results you want then it is fine.

I actually enjoy low DDs like Kimberly.

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

Hunger is not an emergency.

It's not what you eat between Christmas and New Year that makes you fat, it's what you eat between New Year and Christmas.
