Monday, 13 December and have you finished your shopping yet?
Building on last week's focus of tracking what we eat in a nutrition app, we can use that information to understand how many calories are needed to maintain our current body weight.
We can take the average of our daily calorie intake from last week and use it as a baseline.
If our body weight stayed relatively similar, we can consider this amount of calories to be our “Maintenance Calories”
It is important to not make too many changes quickly. We should continue to eat at these “Maintenance Calories” for a few weeks and observe how our body weight changes.
After 3-4 consistent weeks, we will know better if this is truly your “Maintenance Calories” from there you can adjust your calories based on your goals!
