Can I lose weight during summer break? Will I regain it after that?


To get back on track, think about how you will achieve your weight loss goal in the first place. What has proven to have worked for you in the past will most likely work for you in a maintenance phase.

If you used meal replacements, try them again, substituting portion controlled shakes or frozen meals for just one meal a day instead of two, as recommended for weight loss. If counting calories helped you lose weight in the past, do it again and calculate calories. Women who were most successful at weight maintenance did closely monitor their food choices, exercised regularly, and had a strong support network including their nutritionist follow-up.
