Ways to Stop Gaining Back Weight You Lost With Calorie Shifting

by : Alan Tan

There is no doubt that Calorie Shifting can help you get to your weight loss goals in the fastest and safest way. This is due to the fact that you do not deprive your body of any nutrients when you calorie shift.

Once you have attained your ideal weight, you might then decide that your dieting days are over. Here's the good news, they are indeed over. You can choose to stop calorie shifting once your goal is reached.

You might be wondering, will you gain back the weight that you have lost if you stop. The answer is a resounding NO.

However, do not that that as a free pass to eat all the fast foods and chocolates you can lay your hands on. Once you stop your calorie shifting diet after reaching your ideal weight, you have to follow up by planning and staying with a sensible eating plan.

Here are some tips to help you with planning your maintenance eating plan:

1. Avoid Fried or Oily Foods

You can either choose to completely eliminate fried or oily foods altogether or if that is not possible, eat a smaller portion of these foods. As far as possible, choose to boil, steam or stew or food instead.

2. Drink Plenty of Water

The recommended water intake is 8-10 glasses per day, you should make it a point to drink enough water throughout the day. Drinking just before a meal will make you feel 'full', so that you end up eating less.

3. Do Not Skip Breakfast

I'm sure you have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is absolutely true and you should never skip it. Having a good breakfast will get your metabolism going, so that you don't feel tired in the later part of the day.

4. Eat 4 Smaller Meals Instead of 3

When you eat 4 smaller meals, you tend to have more energy as your body works to process the food, keeping your metabolism going. Doing so reduces the amount of time in between meals, helping to curb the urge of snacking between meals.

5. Stay Off the Sodas and Candies

I cannot stress this enough, stay OFF the sodas. I'm frankly surprised if you need to drink any other beverages if you stick to the recommended water intake of 8-10 glasses a day. If you must drink some sodas, go for the diet sodas at least. Reduce the sugar you put in your tea or coffee as well, if it is possible use low calorie sweeteners.

With these tips in mind, you should have no problems keeping from gaining back the weight you have lost even after you stop your calorie shifting diet.
