I'm looking ahead to when I reach my goal weight and estimating that my maintenance caloric goal will be around 1,870. I wonder if I can feasibly eat at this level for the rest of eternity. Before starting my weight loss journey, I was eating around 2,200 calories a day. My plan is to add daily cardio exercise to burn off the difference so I can go back to eating at pre-weight loss levels since I wasn't necessarily eating badly, I was just eating calorie dense foods while working a desk job and driving (instead of walking/taking public transport).
This got me thinking: Do people who have maintained their weight loss without adding any form of exercise exist? If you are one, has it been hard for you to eat at maintenance?
