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.

SW 2/26/13 =274.8
CW=270.0 SAME! after an ud
Sleep= 6:43 89% efficiency
Urine Ketones= didn't bother
Blood Ketones= didn't bother
Calories = 1803
Net Carbs = 53g/12%
KR = 1.33 my ud's have been higher, thinking the higher carbs lowered this.
So, another thing I noticed when I went back in my journals is that I was averaging 10,000 steps when my weight was at the low point. So motivation to get my butt on the treadmill, even on the days I think I will get the steps in other ways, so that I can get the 10,000 daily average over the course of the week. And thus the reason I added steps to the things I keep track of at the top of every morning.
My nook is messed up, I need to figure out how to get it to turn on, it does this on occasion, I just can't remember how to fix it. So I can't go back and see what the guidelines were for carbs and fats. I think that getting more protein that what I have been makes sense since I had essentially become a vegetarian to hit the low mark. I don't think going back to trying for 170g makes sense though. It may be that I just work to keep my carbs (or at least net carbs) under 50g and let the protein and fat fall where it will.
So today I am going to save the bulk of my calories for when I get home from work. Well actually have to take DS shopping for new shorts right after work, then I am supposed to go to a yoga class at 6:30, so it looks like I will have very little time to partake of any calories till after yoga. Although being short of time has never been a hindrance to eating for me-for exercise yes, eating not so much!
Today is a down day and the 3rd day of TTOM. Typically the worst but I doubt it can be worse than yesterday. Because even though I didn't have cramps TMI ALERT!!!!! even after changing every 2 hours I still had an overflow in the morning. Luckily I was wearing a dark skirt. I am so ready for this whole thing to be over!!!
