Over the last 3 weeks I've lost 11lbs, aiming for 1500-1700cal each day. I do an hour of intense exercise 6X per week. At first I wasn't hungry, but now I am getting hunger pangs. I also want a more gradual weigfht loss, one that is sustainable in the very long term. So I'm thinking of increasing my calories to 1800 per day for a month or so, then taking it to 1700 and so on, shooting for a 500cal deficit.
My question is, because I was at a 800-900cal deficit each day, and now I'm decreasing that to a 400-500cal deficit, will I regain some of the weight I lost?
I.e. now that I've started on a 800cal deficit, will I always need to shoot for that to lose weight?
Thanks in advance,
