Maintenance usually begins when weight loss stops, and can start at about 1500 calorie per day. However, it will vary because the recommended daily energy intake figures are 2000 calories for women and 2500 calories for men, so some people may still lose some weight if their intake is below these levels.
The real danger is – after the 'exciting' weight loss phase – that all the old reasons for being overweight could return. The Immediate Rewards four-stage process helps you to understand the reasons for your original overweight, and the stabilization adds selected healthy food choices. In the maintenance stage, you can continue healthy eating and increase the levels of activity. Many people continue to use Immediate Rewards once or twice a day – not only to control energy intake but to continue getting the benefits of good nutrition.
Keep a regular check on your weight. When your body weight is increased by more than five pounds above your ideal weight, it is time to take prompt action. This can be done by cutting out a conventional meal and having an Immediate Rewards meal instead. As time goes by, people who have been plagued by being overweight for most of their lives become slim, and attain great confidence. The Immediate Rewards Diet is a very powerful tool with which you can control your weight.
