an average of 1600 cal's is my maintenance level.

I have kept a spreadsheet of calories consumed for years, and would average them out at times. I figured out what I could lose on, and what I gained on. I generally average them every couple weeks to ensure that I am where I want/need to be.

I mostly eat around the low 1500's because I practice allowing myself one day per week to eat whatever I like, however having said that, it is often 12-14 days between that days. It is just KNOWING I can if I want to and I'm not depriving myself, that makes it much easier.

My maintenance range is 1660-2010 kcal, and I find that I tend to be between 1800 and 2000 (closer to 2000 on running days) most of the time. It seems to work pretty well for me. FTR, I'm 5'5" and 127 lbs. and have been maintaining for about 6 months now.

I'm at maintenance and experimenting with sticking to the different ends of the SP recommended calorie range. I'm wondering what works for other maintainers out there. Do you successfully use the calorie range SP suggests, or have you found something different is working for you?
