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.
