Who needs to reduce calories to maintain?

A question for long term maintainers....
Has anyone found that one needs to reduce calories to maintain their weight?
I've read that the longer one restricts food, the slower one's metabolism becomes and hence the less food (calories) one requires to maintain. I often read comments from 'experts' telling us not to eat below 1200 calories.
I'd appreciate your input on this one.


HW 2003: 145 lbs

Maintaining 121 -125 lbs since 2005
Maintenance Goal for 2016: 119 - 121 lbs.... tick
Maintenance goal for 2017: 120-122 lbs .... tick
Maintenance goal for 2018: 120-122lbs

I've been doing Atkins for 12 years. As time goes by, I notice that I definitely need to watch my portions. I assume it's an age thing, since everything (like healing and reaction time) seems to go more slowly. Aging is no fun, but it beats the alternative. ;-)
