Be honest with yourself

If you bite it, write it!

When tracking your food, be honest with yourself. Don't "tweak" the amount you ate to make it fit into your calorie range -- you will only hurt yourself. If you don't want others to know what you ate, you can always set it so no one can see your food tracker.

healthy LIFEstyle journey mindset

Moving from weight loss to maintenance does not mean you are free to eat whatever you want whenever you want. It is helpful to have a "healthy lifestyle journey" mindset when losing weight so when you reach your goal you are ready to continue the lifestyle.

calorie cycling

The premise behind calorie cycling is that you never let your body figure out that you're trying to lose weight and keep it from going into starvation mode. Basically, what you want to do with calorie cycling is eat on the high end of your calorie range one day, then on the low end the next.
