5lbs to go.....

I have only have 5 more pounds to lose to reach my goal weight. I am currently taking 500-600 cals below maintence.

The question is should I up my cal intake as I get near my target weight?

Or should I keep it at my current intake until I hit my foal weight?

Bro, if you up your cals. then no weight will drop… so keep it there if it’s working and till you reach your goals.

I would say to even go a bit past your target weight. In my experience there is usually a little natural “rebound” as I taper off. A little cushion helps.
