Then, once you get your new calorie range... Add about 100 calories every few weeks. As you do this monitor your weight. You will quickly be able to discover your maintenance calorie range. Dietitian Becky
Go into your goals page and change your weight goal to your current weight. Also, make sure your weekly calorie burn goal is correct for the level of exercise you are doing. Spark with recalculate your calorie range for you, and should recommend a higher calorie range for weight maintenance. I think you're making a smart move. It is hard to gain a lot of muscle while losing weight.

I hope this is the correct place to post this Q.
I basically want to stop my weight loss for now and tone up. I'm curious whether I need to start eating in the "maintenance" calorie mode or stick to the 1200-1550 recommended by Sparkpeople during my weight loss.
I'm trying to transition this into a lifestyle and my #1 mission is to make exercise a routine and not just a weight loss effort.
