    It is what it is. My sedentary TDEE is around 1450.. but I'm never sedentary so can eat around 2000 to maintain 125lbs/5ft 2/48yrs. its totally worth staying on plan, I love being lean and fit :smile:

    You won't feel as hungry because your body will need less. But in general it sucks, that's true.

    I found this out too. Oh well, it's better to eat healthier anyway. Eating healthier often means eating less.

    I wish this were true. But it wasn't, at least for me.

    Yeah, running makes me a lot hungrier than the number of calories it burns!

    OP, I will say this - after taking a longer time to lose the weight I needed to lose, eating at a lower calorie target became more or less habit. And yeah, if you have the idea that you can't ever go over the minimum calories when you're maintaining, the future can look grim, but as you can see staying moderately active can contribute substantially to raising that number. My best advice right now would be to forget about how many calories you may or may not be able to eat in maintenance, and focus on where you're at right now - sometimes the future has a way of taking care of itself if we just let it be :)

    Wow that’s good advice!

    Unfortunately lower hunger levels and a lower weight don't always coincide.
    Quite a few people have the same hunger level no matter the weight.

    Cheers, h.

    Not always. But mostly. Which is natural. I'm sure you'd agree.
    I'm not talking about cravings and apetite. Are you?
