I think if you are truly following protocol, then you are fine! Relax!!
Yep! The two extra egg whites ( no whole egg) and veggie scramble were my go to to get me through the day if/when the calorie deficit from not using restricted played the hungry monster with me. And that happened more when I was still heavier. As I got closer to goal..I was getting enough. Maintenance cals for someone my height is the diet range for someone a half foot taller than me!

Maintenance is around 1150 to 1250 for me. Not a lot of room for fun unless I make sure my portions are 2/3 what my friends and spouse eat.

Fortunately 65, I have a dh who can eat A LOT - even before IP he would just take about 1/2 of what I had when we went out to dinner! I suspect once I hit maintenance, he will be more than happy to finish anything I'm not eating.

I usually cut portions in half and get To-Go box... When out if necessary and it's a place I'm comfortable going that route. Also can order 1/2 portions or "small plates " in many nice restaurants these days...AND the not as nice spots often have a senior menu ..which I find works well. LOL..saves $$ too....which I quickly spend on clothes!!!!
....We need a smilie with a shopping bag!
