1400 calories for maintenance



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Quick question, I am currently 148. I am fine with this weight and size. I feel much healthier. I was wondering if 1400 is enough to maintain my weight without regaining. I try for 1200 per day but sometimes, I have trouble staying with that amount of calories. Most calories come from healthy sources and I practice Portion Control.

Thanks!

it's going to be different for everyone. I can maintain on 1700. Some people can only eat 1200. Try eating 1400 a day and see what happens. If you start gaining, then you'll need to cut back.

@codingirl79

hi newbie

you are brand new here, but i see you have lost 80 lbs - DOS. 11/6/18 - post

sleeve, that's terrific sounds, like you are doing everything right!!

being healthy and a cutie, what more could you ask for!!☺️

at 10 months out. you have to "weigh" LOL your options - how about meeting in the middle with you calories, see if you can maintain at 1300. Try it for awhile and

see what happens. Continue to up/down your calories until you are

maintaining - and feeling good

Many variables like @summerset

good luck

welcome to the boards☺️

kathy

congrats

Thank you ProudGranny!! Your weight loss is great as well!! 1300 sounds reasonable. I do have an appointment with my nutritionist next week so we will see what they say as well. I always have the fear of the weight coming back.

Thank you for the welcome!

Looking forward to everyone's support!

I’m only 6 months out. I felt like it was coming off too quick and I was already below my goal at 5 months. I increased from 600/700 to 1000 and still lost 2-3 pounds for the first week or so. Now I have maintained the same weight the past 2 weeks on the same 1000. So it may take a few weeks at the higher calories and I am assuming higher carbs to really judge where your body settles.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
