    its a marathon, not a sprint. What good will it do for you to crash down to 200 and not in the process learn how you need to eat to maintain that 200? otherwise you'll just balloon back up

    so what you really need to do is look for both activities as well as foods that you won't suddenly drop when you hit your goal. if doing cardio for 45 minutes 5x a week isn't realistic for you to do long term, then find some sorts of activities that are. And foodwise think about this... (reposting it again )




    So do you eat the muffin normally and then eat a ton of other stuff as well? or do you eat 1/3 of the pile of fruit and save the rest for later?



    Do you have the tart for 440 cals or just one bowl of the raspberries for 55 cals?



    Do you end up eating all the things on the left side, instead of the meal on teh right side that ends up being 1/3 the calories?
