Alternating caloric intake each week will help fool your body and increase your metabolism. Eating at the high end boosts your metabolism to burn more calories, then when you lower your calories but continue your exercise intensity, your metabolism is still up from the higher calories week.
It's also a good idea to keep moving for at least twenty minutes within thirty minutes after two of your meals. This keeps your metabolism up for a little longer.
