Weight loss goal



Recommended Posts

Congratulations on reaching goal weight!

It isn't necessrily the meals but an increased calorie intake that will help maintain weight loss/stop losing weight.

Do you know how many calories you are eating now? If not, you could you a calorie counting app to find your current baseline. From there you could slowly increase your daily calorie intake each week/fortnight until you stop losing weight.

If your current intake is say 800 calories, for the next week or fortnight increase to 900 or 950 calories? Monitor for loss, gain or stay the same and keep adjusting up or down until you find the balance that works for you.

If you don't want to count calories, you could try instead by increasing portion sizes a little, but restriction may hinder that, so perhaps an extra snack or two during the day instead.

Otherwise, if you are using diet products eg low fat products, instead you could try 'normal/standard' products, thus increasing your calorie intake without too much effort.

They do say that most people will put on a little weight after reaching their lowest weight, so perhaps your balance may come naturally without too much trouble on your part.

I was going to say the same thing. I intentionally went about 10 pounds below my goal so that I would be at my goal weight when I gained it back--and I did. With very little trouble, I might add.
