For those of you on maintenance

How do you maintain? I know that sounds totally daft, but I can lose weight like the devil himself, have lost the same three stones on several different occasions during my adult life, but so far I have put it all back on as soon as I stopped whatever diet I was 'doing'. Something tells me now that what I've been doing wrong is going back to my carb-munching ways.

Now doing a VLCD for the first time, I can see that ketosis cuts carb cravings - simple as that. I think things are going to be different this time because I plan to stay in ketosis by low carbing happily ever after. Please tell me that this will happen! :p

Also - do you have a strict weight above which you immediately go back on induction? I have a plan that once I reach 11 and a half stone that I won't let myself get above 12 without going right back to 20g of carbs again. Does anyone else do this? Or if not, how do you police yourself?

I allow myself 3lbs, but I don't actually weigh myself much anymore, I go by my belt and how my clothes feel. I also go on strict induction before a known blow out, parties, works do's Christmas or holidays etc.

I tend to only eat one carby meal a day, the rest are Atkins friendly.
