It might help to acknowledge that once you reach your goal weight (generally, your recommended weight), you're going to have to continue consuming X-amount of calories going forward, or weight gain will ensue. Of course, adding exercise to the Weight Equation can certainly assist with the balance.
Therefore, we suggest that you determine the number of calories your body needs to support your recommended weight. From there, simply consume that amount of calories going forward - making your choices from the healthy food pyramid groups.

In Weight Loss Motivation Summary
Losing weight is hard, but in the end it's generally much easier than Weight Maintenance. Over 95% of individuals who lose significant weight end up regaining the weight in addition to more weight.
Therefore, Diet Bites feels that too much emphasis is placed on weight loss rather than weight maintenance in today's health news.
Losing weight is so challenging, and once those extra pounds are gone, the post dieter should work doubly hard to make sure they never come back again! While almost-everyone can lose weight, not everyone can keep it off. So work hard, keep the weight off for good! You can do this!
