Weight Loss Maintenance
Once you arrive at your ideal weight, the new focus will be on maintaining this healthy new YOU!
Some patients have to work at stopping the weight loss, while others find that once hunger returns, fighting weight regain is hard.
A certain amount of regain (about 5%) is expected along the way. Larger fluctuations in weight are not helpful to your health so regular monitoring is needed.
If you are having trouble keeping the weight off - go back to the beginning with your portion management tools to be sure you are eating the right amount of protein carbs and fats in the correct portion size for your small tummy. If you are really stuck - seek counselling and support from your professional team.
If you need to stop the weight loss once you meet your desired ideal weight, try adding more healthy calories using the following ideas:
Peanut butter added to smoothies
Add avocado to meals, and smoothies
Flax/olive/coconut oil are all healthy fats that will add health benefit and calories
Add an extra protein snack into your day.
Dries fruit and nuts pack a nutritional and nutritional punch and are small size with higher caloric values that will help to slow weight loss.
