I've never really dieted, but have thought I should lose some weight for quite a while. The My Fitness Pal has really given me a great tool and it's really worked. I've dropped 20 pounds (210 to 190) over the past four months and now I want to hit weight maintenance. But the app says instead of the 1990 calories per day for loss, I can go to 2450 calories per day. That seems like a lot!
I'm a 56 YO 6'1" man. 180 or 185 would probably be my ideal weight, but I'm pretty happy with 190. What experience does anybody have with maintenance calories? Can they really go up that much and you not gain the weight back?
