Maintaining Weight Loss
femmefatale posted:
Hey guys! So quick question... I'm 5'3" & 114 lbs. I worked out everyday & burned 1000 calories on the treadmill to get to my current weight. Now I just want to focus on maintaining my weight so I turned to WebMd for help. According to WebMd I should have 2286 calories a day & burn 100 calories a day (my daily goal is 2186 cals). I DO NOT believe I can maintain my weight living like that. I'm just really confused so any advice is welcome! xoxo

I think its more important to worry about the amount/quality of nutrients you are getting instead of the amount of calories you eat when it comes to weight management, because your body storing fat is a response to an imbalance in your body- like the lack of nutrients in the food your eating or other poor eating habits. so if you keep the right balance of nutrients in your body, and this has worked for me, then your body has no need to store fat. I've found that this method keeps your body at its natural, healthy bodyweight

Thank you! This makes much more sense why the body stores fat.

Thank you! That helped!

You're welcome! ha this philosophy has done really well for me so I'd just thought i'd share it, so basically if you can get all your nutrients in one place (like a protein or meal-replacement shake; I drink the manna shake every day, which i highly recommend) then you don't really have to worry so much about whatever else you eat because your body will probably just get rid of it
