If you’re at the end of your weight loss journey or already pleased with your weight, you might wonder what and how much you can eat to maintain your current weight. Lifesum has all the tools you need to continue your health journey beyond weight – it’s all about getting to know your body.
A woman needs about 2000 kcal per day to remain weight stable and a man 2500kcal. However, if you have a desk based job, drive to work and don’t get a lot of exercise, a typical woman will need about 1700kcal per day. You also have to consider the individual burn rate, which depends on your muscle mass (more muscles = higher metabolism), lifestyle and DNA.

Lifesum does the calorie maintenance calculation for you. The calories we recommend will vary depending on your activity level that particular day, making the app tailored to you on a daily basis. It’s a great way to track calories since the tracking itself is super easy. All you need to do is work on your health. Lifesum is available for iPhone for Android and you can get started today!
Since muscle mass plays a big role in your metabolism, it’s important to not eat too little after a weight loss journey. Eating less than you need can result in muscle loss and decrease your calorie burn over time. To ensure you eat the best amount of calories for your body, choose a weight maintenance program in Lifesum’s app, available for free in the App Store & Google Play.
