This is achieved during the maintenance phase of the diet. This phase lasts 6 weeks. The first maintenance phase you slowly start to introduce back foods into your diet and increase caloric intake back to “normal” i.e. 2,000/ calories per day. In the second maintenance phase you will slowly start to introduce back carbohydrates and sugars. This phase is to allow for a smooth transition to a higher calorie diet and this allows a person to sustain long term weight loss goals. Remember the goal isn’t to lose the weight; the goal is to keep it off. This phase allows the diencephalon to adjust to your new weight and body frame. Simply put your body will basically reset itself at its new weight. You will need to continue to exercise as you were already doing on the diet, eat in moderation, and make sensible food choices in order to keep the weight off. I would recommend that everybody continue to weight yourself regularly (i.e. 1x/day or 1x/week).
