I watched the HBO special Weight of the Nation a few months back. One thing that was said is that in the year after you lose weight, you need to eat 20% less to keep the weight off or do comparable amount of exercise to have a 20% deficit.
I see that I am hungry a lot. I am eating enough and getting carbs, protein, fat, micronutrients etc. But I guess my body is used to a fatter setpoint and wants me to get there.
I need to figure out what calories and foods are right for me. I am planning on taking a walk during lunch to try to mediate the hunger.
I am not putting that weight back on! So far I am maintaining, but I can see feeling hungry every day after eating; and the weight just sliding back. I am committed to fitness, and got almost 3000 minutes last month. and even though I knew I ater too much I tracked everything.
So no sliding, no weight gain. I am a work in progress
