Having a hard time adjusting to my Maintenance calorie range

Tuesday, December 01, 2020

Yikes, I went from 1200-1500 a day and now that I'm at goal, it's 1800-2200. It feels like a crazy amount of food and I have this fear that if I eat that much I'll gain, not maintain... So I'm easing up to the low end averaging 1500-1700 per day.

We'll see how it goes! I've never effectively ,maintained weight loss so this is a whole new world...

    I ran into the same thing here... I agree with your decision to stay LOW END of that range. The other thing I found in my second year of maintenance was the macro split HAD to change.... of course I am much older than you 😉 so less carbs and more pr

    You got this. The most important thing I have learned, and I am still working on, is to "listen" to my body cues. Take you time to find where you are comfortable, your appetite is satiated, and you are able to sustain you new lifestyle. It may not be at that higher range, but where you are comfortable. emoticon
