Sabine I agree, and I do tend to tweak quickly.
the thing is that I cannot seem to keep to the 500 calorie days. So I am trying to figure out what combination of macros will make those days easier. So I am not giving up low carb or primal or JUDDD, what I am loosening up on is the EMF. If I can't get to where I can do the dd's then I am not really doing JUDDD. so for me the tweaking is about getting to successfully doing dd's.
It actually doesn't seem to be about hunger either, I don't feel hunger when I have eaten over my 500. It almost has a bingey quality. I don't like that. Gotta prevent it.

Actually, if you wanted (could live with) a slower weight loss, you can still JUDDD with slightly higher DD calories. I can't remember all of your stats, but I estimate you can get to 700 calories on a DD on the 35% WLM.

since I am getting no loss currently because I keep messing up the 500 calorie day, it might be a good idea to loosen up. I have not been eating to my limit on my ud's either, so I am not getting a good feast or famine situation.

Rereading the SPEED book. They clearly say:
Eat a low carbohydrate, medium protein, high fat diet...A protein intake of about 1.5g/kg (.68g/lb) seems to be a good amount for health and fat loss. For example, a 160lb (73kg) person would want to ingest about 109 grams of protein/day.
Um, where did we go wrong there? For me, that's a totally reasonable amount of protein. More than I've been eating, but less than I originally was. Sigh. Sometimes I have to give things a few tries.

Macros are on p. 157 (171 of the PDF).

Speed would have me eating 150g protein. I was never able to hit it.

I was the one blowing the protein out the door. Actually, if I use my goal weight in the calc, I get closer to what is natural. I had not remembered the high fat part...

Yep it has me at 175g for protein and I don't consider that moderate. However if i use my goal weight then yes i get to 100 to 120g and that is moderate I think.
Have you come across how they determine how many carbs and how much fat?
P.S. i just realized you were giving me a page number. I have the nook version and will look it up now. Thanks

Yes. Even I, who loves protein, could not do 150-175. That's a weakness, for sure.

Dead battery, rats. I will have to do the research tomorrow.
