    The calorie difference as you lose weight is tiny, probably less than measuring error for the foods you eat. Really, reducing your DD food by 1-2 calories a day is not significant.

    I ate a yam the other day and upped my carbs to 45 a day and i felt SO much better then at 20 carbs a day.
    I didn't lose weight on 20carbs a day either. thanks for the LINK!

    Yeah, do what feels right. I am eating potatoes only on my DD, with a HFLC lunch and a high carb supper on my up day.

    LOL! I was thinking about this on the way home from CrossFit today when I hadn't had anything to eat yet! I was thinking, heck, it's already noon and I haven't eaten yet and am not hungry...then I got home and fired up the stove and stuffed myself with eggs and skirt steak, potatoes in bacon fat and kale. Thing is, now I'm so full and I have soccer tonight, I don't know how I'll get in the remaining 1k calories unless I make fat bombs!

    Also, what do those of you who have chosen set UDs and DDs do on that extra day?

    For example, I am going to have Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday be DDs, and Monday, Wed and Friday be UDs. That leaves pesky Sunday. My instinct is to simply do a moderate day that represents the average caloric intake between an UD and a DD which would be 1250 calories. Does that make sense? What do y'all do?

    So full of energy today, maybe I'll leave work early and walk home the long way.

    I do an every other day rotation, so one week I am eating MWFU, the next week I am eating TRS. If I continue this method, I can see myself enjoying the switch to just two regular days per week, say MR, to make weekends easier.

    I'm also doing every other day rotation, but I have been thinking eventually I would do Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and I think I'd do exactly what you said...just the average of the two.

    Eating a LOT today. Eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage for breakfast, cashews in between. Had a brat with some cheese and (yikes) kettle cooked tater chips and getting ready to dinner of bacon and eggs again. Still craving the breakfast foods! I wanted to make potatoes, but I am resisting. I finally calculated my numbers on JUDDD. Mine are approx 2800 on UD and 571 on DD. Well, i don't count, and I'm not going to but it was fun to see what they thought I should be eating.
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    Kicking through a plateau this week by trying ADE. Today is my first ever fast of this length, though I've done several 20-24 hour fasts.

    A few people have done a complete fast on the down days. Most of us just attempt to eat the number of calories indicated on the JUDDD site calculator. A full fast is not required.

    good question , i do every other day now but i was thinking of having my dd's be MWF and up days be TuThSa & Sun but i wondered how many calories i should eat sunday since saturday is an ud,...... i was thinking about 1285 as well. i just want to relax and have fun on the weekends , not be grouchy cause im hungry!

    speaking of over achieving for food on an up day.......i think i went overboard! making bbq ribs and cole slaw which doesn't seem like a big deal. till i realize i have to make the bbq sauce from scratch so it doesn't have HFCS or sugar junk. and then i had to make mayo from scratch for the cole saw because regular mayo is made with crap canola oil. i made the bbq sauce last night but everything else today, too much! but hey now at least i have bbq sauce and mayo in the fridge for the next month!
