Often people lose their battle with excess weight, when they are trying to keep off weight gain after a successful weight loss period! Find below tips to maintain weight loss:
Studies show that weight loss results in a concomitant decline in body’s Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) of about 8 kcal/lb (nearly half kilo)lost/day. This drop in BMR, which has been termed ‘energy gap’ is the reason for maintaining a lower calorie intake in the long term for sustained weight loss. So, if you lost, say 10 kilo weight, you have to eat 200-300 calories fewer than someone with same weight
Research shows that people who weigh themselves at least once a week, keep the weight off more successfully. In fact, weighing yourself daily is even better!
Physical activity is crucial in the prevention of weight regain.
Get aware of creeping indiscipline (which is very common) in your lifestyle. You can use any of the available mobile applications, and monitor yourself at least weekly for how well you are doing with regard to your set goals
So, follow these principles to not throw away all the good work you did in losing weight!
