Don'T Be Afraid To Make Adjustments

This Sparked Me!

In six months or so I've maintained, my weight has been stable in the 160-165 range. But my nutrition guidelines have varied by 25% based on my injury and exercise status. I've had calorie ranges from 2200-2550, up to 2900-3250. If I see the weight moving in one direction, I change the calorie limit in the other direction.

If I know I'll be getting less exercise (e.g., injury prevents running), I'll proactively reduce the calorie range before the weight appears.
