I found that upping my activity will also help with diet. More activity means more calories burned so there's more room in diet. Also try varying diet, see if you can add more lower calorie and fresh produce helps me fill up on those less of more calorie dense food

I find that for me personally, every 6-8 months I need to switch over to maintenance for a bit. I start to get hungry with the same amount of food despite having a pretty high range of 1550-1900, and adding an extra few hundred calories (of healthy nutritional food) for a few weeks helps keep me from going all out.

From there, I figure out where to scale back again to get back in to my ranges. I stick to mostly whole foods and will cut back on portions of calorie-dense stuff, like cheese or pasta or oil. I have found it very difficult to stay satisfied and within my ranges with processed foods.

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

For me, the less I have to think about it, the better.

I started by paying attention to when I would get hungry and when I was most likely to overeat. I then created an "eating schedule." I know when I'm going to eat, what I'm going to eat, and I have it all logged into my nutrition tracker. This way I don't have to keep tracking things all the time or wondering if this plum or that cheese stick will put me over or not.

Because, I'm not very organized, especially in the mornings, I take time on Sunday to prepare all my lunches for the week. I cook and pack everything I'm going to need. That way, they're all nice and handy in the fridge when I'm running out the door late.

Start by tracking everything you eat. Don't worry about cutting back; just focus on tracking. Measure and weigh everything. YOu can't change it if you don't know it's happening. ;) Once you do that for a few days, you can look back for patterns, things that trigger you, and places you can start cutting back. It's not all or nothing; when I got started with this, all I did (seriously) was replace half of my pasta with whole wheat. Nothing else.

Over time, I made changes; cutting back on portions, shifting snacking habits, replacing less-healthy options with more healthy options... don't try to change everything all at once. The goal is to build healthy habits for life... not crash-diet your way to thinness!
