I'm coming to the point where I'm happy with my weight and want to maintain this. I've done this through a calorie controlled diet using "My Fitness Pal" which has been pretty successful and allowed me to eat proper meals by substituting unhealthy foods with healthier ones - particularly eating a lot of high protein foods such as lean meat, pulses, fat free yogurts etc. Also I realised just how many calories I was scoffing through snacks such as crisps, biscuits etc and have pretty much cut those out.
The next challenge is how to maintain weight without eating bad foods .. According to the calculator I can eat another 500 calories per day which is about another meal!! I want to build this into my "3 meals a day, healthy snacks" lifestyle without piling it on through cakes etc. Some days I do 2 hour bike rides which gives me another few hundred (I have always done this but fallen into the trap of thinking I could eat what I want as a result and eaten more than I burned)!
So at last onto the question .... Any tips on how to do this - that is increase calorie intake without eating unhealthy foods? Are there any "key" foods - as noted I've found high protein, low fat foods to be the "key" to my weight loss, are there similar ones for weight maintenance?
I'm the type of person who needs things built into a normal lifestyle - other than tracking on MyFitnessPal or I just don't stick to it long term.
Thanks in advance,
