  • Hi looking for ideas on how best to maintain weight. I’ve been doing 5:2 for 18 months and have gone from over 70kg to 52.3kg (5’6″). To be fair, latterly I’ve been doing some extra days. BMI is now 18.5.

    But I’ve struggled to just maintain weight. Start gaining when I switch to 6:1 and even doing one 500 cal day and one 1000 cal day doesn’t seem to help. Seems I can gain weight well and lose weight well but staying put at any one weight is elusive!

    Has anyone else experienced this? Or, even better, solved it?

    Hi nigorahon, there’s the maintainance thread, maybe ask your question there. There is also another thread about difficulties maintaining lower weight after 2 years. I think Maybelle started it?
    There’s an older, but very interesting blog on this topic – Debra’s justmaintaining.com. This blog is especially worth your time if you want to research the scientific background and various aspects of maintaining.
    One thing is for sure: you are NOT alone in this!!!

    Good luck!

    Thanks I’ll have a look!
