Since two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese, it’s understandable that most people are concerned with weight loss. But unless you want to have a recurring relationship with those same 20, 30, or 40 pounds (or whatever), it’s time to pay attention to what science says about weight maintenance.
While exercise plays a lesser role in weight loss, it’s extremely important in weight maintenance.
Incidentally, how fast you lose the weight doesn’t seem to have an effect on whether you can keep it off, although losing weight slowly can help prevent muscle loss and prevent hormonal disruption. I dont understand how you can quote the number of recommended calories at 1385 across the board for maintenance that can seem low for some.
Hi Lisa, that number is an average of the calorie intakes of over 10,000 people who are part of the National Weight Loss Registry. 1 – The 1385 number is the average of the 10,000 people in the National Weight Loss Registry. Later when I found the hCG protocol, at first of course, like you guys no doubt thought (or may be still thinking) it sounded too good to be true.  But after I saw person after person on youtube sharing their real life hCG journey, day by day, I saw it was real. And you CAN make this change.  You know how I know?  Because if I can do it, you can as well. Despite many marketing dollars to convince you otherwise, no particular diet is significantly more effective than another. Getting there is often a crooked line of trial and error or relying on the most popular quick fix.
While weight loss means making temporary behavioral and cognitive changes, maintaining your weight is another matter.


As I said in The Truth About Which Diets Work the Best, research shows that the composition of your diet is less important when losing weight. First the main body of the article says that it may not be good to stay on a restrictive diet forever. We really have no idea who these people are, what their body composition is, or what kind of activity they do. However, social and family support are a major factor in successful weight loss and maintenance; studies show this. Holly Wyatt, physician and clinical researcher at the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Denver.
There are a vast number of ways for which to lose weight and an equally large variety of ways to keep it off. Maintaining a healthy weight – and living a long, healthy life – is the longer term goal we should keep our eye on.
Looking at the stats, it seems most of them are walkers and very few of them engage in strength training. Yes, 1385 calories is too low for many women, particularly if they are exercising vigorously every day. I am so bored of eating different food to the rest of the family (who refuse to join my healthy eating regime) and trying to justify myself all the time. The first step is to communicate with your spouse about your feelings if you haven’t already.
Sure, some people continue to track their daily calorie intakes, and that’s fine if it works for you, but surely most of us don’t want to restrict carbs for the rest of our lives, or whatever restriction a diet places on us.


My advice for people asking how to maintain their losses is this: DON’T STOP doing what WORKED to lose the weight!!! The long-term effects of restrictive diets such as low-carb are not clear, although we do know that exercise will be quite challenging without carbs (not good for weight maintenance, as you’ll see next). So why does this webpage put so much emphasis on WEIGHT loss and show this datum about staying on a restrictive diet forever?
Too often people think it’s a temporary fix and they can go back to eating the way they used to. Also, consider joining a weight loss support group or class (as well as online groups) and enlist friends for support. And if you’re on a restricted-calorie diet forever, well, you’ll have very little lean muscle mass and a slower metabolism.
In my experience, weight loss maintenance is about a lifestyle change and staying on track. You really do deserve and need support in this life change and there IS support out there for you!
