How do you change your habits to prevent weight loss and weight regain?
First and foremost, you need to change your perspective. You shouldn’t worry about stopping weight loss and gain because you are going to have daily fluctuations that don’t mean anything. Similarly, maybe you gain muscle tissue over time, which is certainly not a bad thing.
You need to start looking at other aspects of health and wellbeing once you reach your goal weight:
How you feel
How your clothes fit
How you look
It’s easy to get trapped into the mindset of focusing on scale weight in exclusion, but that’s really short-sighted. Who cares if you continue to lose weight or gain weight if other aspects of your health are improving?
If you are someone who counts calories, then aim for 300 to 500 additional Calories each day to return to roughly maintenance intake. If your body weight continues to trend downward after increasing calories, then you know you need to increase your calorie intake more. If it starts trending upwards, then pay attention to other aspects of your health and habits.
