Best way to put brakes on

After 2 Cycles I'm down 5!

After 20 weeks of LC, I started JUDDD at 14% BF, and a I know if I drop below that I' ll get every winter virus going.

So what is the best way to slow this down:

Up calories on DD
Up calories on UD
Up calories on both days
Decrease no of DD and increase number of UD?

What is the recommended method? Thanks

Probably the best way to slow down weight loss (haven't had to do it yet, but its a fun idea to throw around) is to up your DD's. Just add 200 or 300 calories to them and it should put your closer to your maintenance calories than you are now. The first week is pretty crazy for weight loss but it will slow down on its own pretty soon. You may have to tweak it a bit but I find I can eat crazy amounts of food on my UD's but its my DD's that make me loose the weight.

Have you got your numbers from Dr. Johnson's website? Use a higher maintenance number. The calculator gives you lots of options for just this reason. Several people here have gone on to lose more than they intended, and got to add back more food. What a problem!

JUDDD got me where I want to be!

I agree with Dawn. Consult Dr. Johnson's calculator to get maintaince numbers.

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.

Kettleboy, I see your concern and respect it. I apologize if my cheery reply to you in the tracker thread seems flippant in light of this.

One thing to consider, JUDDD itself is potentially protective, boosting health in various ways, one of which I personally believe is resistance/immune system. Go by your stats on Dr. James Johnson's Up Day Down Day website, yes, as others already pointed out, and increase calories where you see gaps, perhaps. Have you read his book, The Alternate Day Diet, yet? Health benefits explained there as well as in the JUDDD overview sticky thread above.

I'll bet you'll find you can simply increase calories at some point in your rotations and achieve the weight stability you want. I maintained at 149 on JUDD for 2.5 years or so before some family crisis stuff detoured me.

On another subject, and one of which you are probably aware, to avoid every winter bug out there, consider upping supplemental Vitamin D-3 through the non-sunny months. Best wishes.

Thanks for all your input.

Yes read the book on Kindle before i started, did the calculator, and have to admit made my UD lower than suggested as it seemed way too high, obviously not! I have had more today on my UD, will see where that takes me

I'm 6' 3" and ex-rugby player shaped:-) so lucky to still have quite a bit of muscle as approach 50, which I suspect effects this.

I'll be interested to seevwhat tomorrow brings....

All good advice here, hope you find the right balance soon.

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

Relax, rotate, reduce, rejoice.

Down Days are the cement that hold JUDDD together.
