Thanks for the tips everyone! I'm going to try eating higher calorie foods again. I got on the scales this morning and I am STILL dropping weight. This is becoming ridiculous. Thanks for the tips everyone

Congratulations on reaching your goal! Your before and after pictures in your profile are awesome!

Some people notice a HUGE jump in calories when they go to maintenance, slowly adding 100 or so calories a day each week to what you were already eating can make the transition much easier than adding several hundred at once. I also agree with other posters that there are many calorie dense foods you can add that don't take up much space, go for full fat options, maybe sneak in an extra snack somewhere.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

Nuts are a good option. Possibly the best/easiest. Glad to see that mentioned. Trail mix with dried fruit is another easy calorie bomb. Another idea is to eat fattier cuts of meat. 8oz of a good steak or even dark meat chicken has more calories than chicken breast, and has never been harder to me to get down when feeling full.

Also, nothing wrong with going back to some of the other foods you really enjoyed before you started losing weight. Sugary marinara sauces on pasta and glazes on meats are fine for you now. Especially if you're eating it after the exercising.

Go ahead a throw butter back in stuff like veggies to make it more delicious. Cheese is good too and back on the menu in larger amounts. If you're drinking skim or 2% milk now go ahead and drink whole. Heck, there's a bulking method for lifters called GOMAD (Gallon Of Milk A Day).

If you're eating anything that's not the full fat variety (yogurt, cottage cheese, salad dressings, mayo) you're doing it wrong. And for breads, there's options out there that are like 200+ cals per slice (I hate getting things like this on sandwhiches out to eat) There not even that noticeably larger slices many times. Just denser and more delicious.

Start of summer 2012- 170 lbs
September 2012- Made my goal of competing at feather weight for Bjj (under 149 with a little water cut)

Now I'm just trying to maintain around 152ish to leave me in easy cutting range. Also trying to relax and eat more like a normal person now, balancing enjoying life and staying healthy.

Nutrient dense healthy fats are a great way to boost calories. Adding a tbsp of olive oil for example, adds 120 calories, and NO bulk, at all. Avocado is another example of this.

SP has a great article for boosting calories without the bulk:

I would focus on nutrient dense foods such as vegs/fruits before workouts and protein/healthy fats after workouts are done. Your appetite will increase as your body starts to adapt to the new fitness routine.

If you are full, why not reduce a couple lower calorie foods and replace with a handful of nuts. Your body won't notice that if you just nibble a few every now and again during the day.

Hello all! I recently just met my goal weight of all time. I am done losing weight and have transitioned into maintaining it. Because I am an athlete to do so requires an intake of calories my body is not used too. To get even remotely close to my LOW calorie goal I have to eat so much I'm sick. Having a problem maintaining my bod just doesn't want it all. Any thoughts?
