Re: When i do gain the weight, how do i maintain?

Why you reach your goal weight (make sure its healthy for your height and age!) then cut back A LITTLE BIT at a time (re evaluate every week or so) until you don't lose and don't gain. I would start by cutting out maybe 200-250 Cals for one week. After that week, look where you are, and if you still gained a wee bit, cut another 200-250 Cals out. I wouldn't cut more than that, because after that you'd most likely start losing weight. Be patient and give each "new" eating amount a fair amt of time to see what happens!
