I'm just curious if those of you who have reached goal or are getting closer (like, within 10 to 20 pounds) have had to really start restricting yourselves in order to keep losing. Have you had to cut back on condiments, eliminate the snack, etc?..

That's a good question. Can't wait for the answers...

Comment #1

So far just hanging in there doing what I've been doing all along. Weight loss has slowed down but I expected it at this point in time...

Comment #2

I haven't really used condiments or snacks this whole time, but now that i'm getting closer to goal I'm being a lot more diligent about exercise since my base calorie burning rate is lower than when I was 30 pounds heavier..

Comment #3

For the last 10 lbs I stayed true to MF, no additions like baking powder, syrup etc. I had snacks if I needed them but no jazzing up of the food. I also ate more chicken/turkey and lowest carb veggies. I did not lose that fast and this did help. I lost 36 lbs in 4.5 months and have maintained for 4 mos. Personal choice, you will reach goal as long as you stay OP. Be sure to follow T&M as written, it works!..

I think having to restrict as one gets closer to goal can depend on whether you start incorporating more exercise or not. I started the 4&2 plan in July as I started doing 60 minutes of cardio 4-5 days/week. Consequently, I routinely get 1050 to 1200 calories a day. When I made this switch, I also started eating at higher end of the carb scale, 90-100 each day. I don't think that my percentage of loss has slowed down all that much, though I haven't done the math. But depending on one's circumstances, such as adding in vigorous exercise, getting more calories and carbs can sometimes keep the scale moving down at a decent pace...

I never used condiments or ate snacks so that hasn't been a factor. I have fine-tuned my exercise to keep me in the "zone", increased my water intake slightly, but my losses were consistent up to the end of 5&1. I'm in my first week of transition now and feeling great...

Comment #6

I never really made too many recipes from the foods anyway so I didn't really change alot. I did up my exercise and toning though to build muscle..

Comment #7

I never doctored up the Medifast foods or used snacks so I can't help there. I did start eating at the higher end of the carb scale though since transition is to help slowly bring you out of ketosis. So I was eating around 80-95g carbs a day instead of my usual 70-80. That seemed to help a lot...

Comment #8

I didnt really do anything different other than staying true to the 5&1 plan. I rarely used the optional snacks to begin with so that wasnt an issue...

Comment #9

I kept everything the same..

I added Yoga in to my exercise routine and did transition exactly the way it was supposed to be done (lost an additional 8 lbs. in transition)...
