Maintenance Phase is the phase in nutrition that we should be living in the majority of the time! This is the amount of calories that you can intake to maintain your current state. However, we find that a lot of women are eating well underneath this number, living in a perpetual state of dieting.
Focusing on eating at maintenance calories & getting an appropriate amount of protein, carbohydrates, fats & high quality, nutrient dense foods can create massive results! Diet culture has brain washed us to think that in order to be healthy & fit we always need to be dieting or cutting calories & that is just not the case!
Taking time at maintenance sets our body up in an optimal place to then diet if desired. If you’re struggling to get results or unsure where to start, maintenance calories combined with Whole Foods & a healthy balance of macros is the perfect place to start!
