If you must succeed in maintaining the weight you lost, you must embrace the changes that helped you achieve your weight loss goal and make them a lifetime habit. The following tips will help you maintain your weight:

Eat Carbs

Carbs provide energy to the body.

Failure to eat carbs will result in eating more; when you do this, the aim of weight loss is thus defeated.

Add Fibre to your Diet

Fibre-rich foods are great for weight maintenance. They fill you up and they take a longer time to digest. When you are full,  the need to binge eat is eliminated. This in turn prevents weight gain.

Count your Calories

If you want to maintain your weight then you must watch your daily calories intake. You have to know your daily consumption so that you can plan your meals accordingly. When you fail to do this, you’ll start overeating without knowing it.
