Default Is this an ok way to maintain?j

I average around 159-161.

I値l eat pretty much whatever I want until I get to 161. Then I値l eat less for a couple days until I知 back at 159.

So I usually eat whatever for 5 days and then low cal for 2 days.

I知 not sure this is healthy to do, I just really like eating unhealthy food and honestly, I don稚 know how else to maintain.

It痴 working. I haven稚 gained any new weight.

It sounds OK to me, as long as you can continue to be consistent.

The danger is if you start skipping the two low-cal days, or they start to drift upward; also, if you overeat so much on the higher-cal days that two low-cal days don't reverse the trend.

Everyone has to find his or her own way to maintain. It's good to include foods you like to eat, as long as you keep in mind that some restriction will have to happen.

Good luck! Good for you for maintaining!

If it works, it works! A range of 3lbs is pretty small, it's within the normal range of weight fluctuations. I think you're fine.
