What are the benefits of maintaining weight loss?
Losing weight can be a hard slog so once it's off, keeping it off will prevent a yo-yo style lifestyle, which can be a little soul-crushing. Maintaining a healthy weight for your body type will keep you looking trim and fit, which may boost your confidence and self-esteem. And let's not forget about the health benefits of maintaining weight loss. Keeping a healthy weight may reduce your risk of chronic disease, breathing problems, joint and muscle pain; and physical appearance prejudices. And it may increase your physical activity, sleep patterns, and overall quality of life.

What can make it easier to maintain weight loss?
Simple. The easiest way to maintain weight loss is by keeping the healthy habits and support networks you had when you lost the weight. When you fall back to old habits like driving everywhere, eating fast foods, not exercising and overeating, the weight will creep on. Maintaining weight loss means maintaining good habits like:
Drinking lots of water and herbal teas.
Committing to daily exercise.
Eating a weight loss meal plan.
Surrounding yourself with like-minded people for support.
What foods can help maintain weight loss?
The foods you eat will contribute to keeping the weight off so don't give up the established good eating habits you formed while losing weight. Stick with a weight loss meal plan and make sure you pile your plate with plenty of green vegetables. While fruit is good for you, limit it to 2 fresh pieces a day. Keep low-kilojoule snacks on hand for those peckish times between meals. Say no to fast and processed foods. And remember to control your portion size.
