Maintenance Question?

For those of you in maintenance, how closely do you track you food? I'm almost to goal and when I get there, I plan on eating mostly low carb because that's what I feel best on and maintain on.

I figure after a while, I'll get used to eating a certain way and only eat when hungry. For those most part, I'm better off eating veggies, protein and fat.

Anyone? I'm curious. TIA!

I have to track pretty carefully on my DDs. I try to stay under 700 and generally come in between 500 and 650.

On UDs I only track because I am interested. I don't worry if I have an UUAD as I am confident that if I keep up my rotations I will continue to maintain with no trouble.

I don't Low Carb any more so I think I have to check calories a bit more carefully on DDs because I am not that confident that I know the calories counts of stuff.

Embrace a little hunger. It is the sign of healing.

Hunger is not an emergency.

It's not what you eat between Christmas and New Year that makes you fat, it's what you eat between New Year and Christmas.

Not very carefully lately. I'm doing 800 cal DD and 1600 cal UD (not including the past week of vacation when I just had FD=free day, where I didn't count at all). My bigger problem is not getting enough on an UD, so I have to keep track to make sure I get them in.

If I eat naturally to hunger, I usually settle around 1200 cals. But that will slow my metabolism, and I'm not going there again.

Considering I've lost 2 pounds in this past week eating whatever I wanted and not tracking at all, I'm pretty happy with this "maintenance". LOL
