So much depends on what you can live with for life.
For me it is very important not to have to count calories and/or worry about weight for the rest of my life. I have chosen a low-carb eating style that cuts out all grains and beans and most sugar which I don't miss any more. This allows me to eat as much as I am hungry for every day of veggies and fruits, nuts, seeds, meats, full-fat dairy and eggs (from pasture-raised animals), fish and fat, keeps my blood sugars and lipid profile and my thyroid values in a healthy range and gives me tons of energy for living plus I never go to bed hungry. I believe I have also reduced my risk of ever getting cancer again a lot by keeping carbs low.
My focus is not at all on weight but on body composition which I have tested about every 3 months now. As long as my body fat % stays around 20% or less I know any weight gain is either muscle or water and I just ignore it.
All this allows me to exercise for fun only, not because I need to lose or maintain weight.
Everyone is a little different in what genetic background their body comes with so needs to take different things into account.
I hope you'll find what works best for you.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
