If you have been through stabilization before...maintenance is keeping up with the same amount of food. I used to eat 3P, 2S,2V, 2F, 1D, 1 fat for my WL. Then during stabilization I kept adding an extra food every week and ended up eating 31/2 P, 3S, unlimited V, 3F, 2D, 3 fats. Maintenance is just eating the same amount of food...but you get to eat all sorts of food in moderation such as sweets, pies, snacks, cookies...dining out etc. Basically you go back to eating as you would in real life...controlling portions.
There is a Stabilization and Maintenance kit....it includes a book with all kinds of food and their exchange and a lot more information regarding healthy living.I think you can buy the entire kit for less than $20 on ebay.
