    If you've been in food logging mode for a while, you should have the data to guess at your own maintenance. If not, go to GOALS and set your goal to maintenance.

    You will most likely see a small bump up on the scale - stay the course as long as it's less than five pounds. Five pounds is a normal amount of fluctuation for most people. With that said, the first year of maintenance for me was a bit of a roller coaster. I would say don't keep jumping around calorie-wise. That makes it really hard to dial in maintenance calories. Pick your best number and stick with it for a couple months.

    You're not going to gain fat ...it's just glycogen and water. Stay the course for a couple months.
