I have been using myfitnesspal for 10 months and this app for about 6 months. I have reached my weight goal.

As far as working out, I think going to stick with toning workouts rather than cardio. My only question is how do i maintain my caloric intake? I don't want to lose more weight.

The food I eat is pretty much home cooked. As a family, our diet consists of lentils, whole grain, chicken, tea (chai) and rice (Brown rice). I'm not much of a meat (beef) muncher.
Eating out is once or twice a week.

My "remaining" on myfitnesspal ranges between 400-500.

Any tips?

How much are you burning with exercise? Maybe do a shorter work out?

I agree with you jennifer. Plus you can change your goal in the settings from weightloss to maintain current weight ..then the rest is you. Good luck.

When I do workouts, I aim for 3-4 workouts. So that's about burning 300-400 calories

I wouldn't suggest working out less...so, I mean, this sounds kind of weirdly simple, but what's the problem with eating a little more?

also, if you're entering your workouts, they might be registering as a bit high ..I assume you are, in addition to the mfp remaining calories, paying attention to how that actually translates into real life. You can have the app telling you you're five hundred OVER on calories and still be LOSING weight (ok, it's not v likely, but it's possible)...besides all that, there are plenty of healthy, balanced (protein/fat/carbs) hundred calorie snacks out there. A few of those throughout the day between meals should do the trick.

Some weight training gets the appetite fired up for me like nothing else.

Jillian Michaels has a formula to figure this out... Has to do with your BMR. I'll try and find it!
