    Default Maintaining weight

    So this question is for everyone who is not interested in losing weight.

    I am at goal. I was going to push the extra 5 pounds off but I feel good here. So. How many cals do you eat to maintain? Do you eat your exercise cals back too? Any tips?

    Thats sounds right. get protein powder to make shakes with.one of those could be anywhere fro 150/200 kcal. twice a day and u are already at 400 kcal. butter as sauce etc. keep it good fat.

    I would eat the exercise calories back during weight maintenance.

    One thing though, for people who have been obese, we generally have slower metabolism. Need 20% less calories than an individual who has never been obese. So you may not be able to maintain at 2200 calories like myfitnesspal suggests. Give it a try.

    • Reduce calories intake for weightloss.
    • Exercise for heart health, mental health and weight maintenance.
    • Make realistic goals.
    • Never give up.
