PUTTING THE CARBOHYDRATE ADDICT’S DIET TO WORK: REACHING YOUR GOAL WEIGHT
As you approach your goal weight, one of two things will happen: either your weight loss will slow or your weight loss will continue. If your weight loss slows, that means you will probably level off at or near your goal weight. That means it’s a good weight for you, and your maintenance program will consist of continuing the eating program you have been following.
One of the most appreciated aspects of the Carbohydrate Addict’s Diet seems to be that dieters enjoy a maintenance program that is essentially the same as the diet itself. In many cases, most of the people we work with find that they have to increase portions at their Low-Carbohydrate Meals after they have remained at their goal weights for a time. It appears the body adjusts to its new weight and is better able to handle a greater intake of food.
We must caution you, however: add only low-carbohydrate foods to your scheduled Low-Carbohydrate Meals and Snacks.

Record your weight every day.
Compare only your weekly averages to determine if you are losing weight. (To get your average for the week, add up all the weights in that week, and divide by the number of weighings.)
