I'm within 5% of my target RDI% and I exercise enough that it makes my net kcal down 1000+. Should I be eating more if this is the case or just expect to lose more weight. I am losing weight, but not as much as you would think being at negative 1000+ calories. I've lost 5 pounds from Feb. 3 to March 3 and wonder if it would be more if I ate more calories. Any help out there?

The fact is that you need at least 1200-1300 calories just to live, it's a basic need. You have already lost weight, and if you eat less than you need, your body will keep gaining weight because of stress. Plus the weight is water, fat, and muscle.

Do not skip breakfast
Skipping breakfast will not help you lose weight. You could miss out on essential nutrients and you may end up snacking more throughout the day because you feel hungry.

2. Eat regular meals
Eating at regular times during the day helps burn calories at a faster rate. It also reduces the temptation to snack on foods high in fat and sugar.

3. Eat plenty of fruit and veg
Fruit and veg are low in calories and fat, and high in fibre – 3 essential ingredients for successful weight loss. They also contain plenty of vitamins and minerals

4. Get more active
Being active is key to losing weight and keeping it off. As well as providing lots of health benefits, exercise can help burn off the excess calories you cannot lose through diet

5. Drink plenty of water
People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger. You can end up consuming extra calories when a glass of water is really what you need.

6. Eat high fibre foods
Foods containing lots of fibre can help keep you feeling full, which is perfect for losing weight. Fibre is only found in food from plants, such as fruit and veg, oats, whole grain bread, brown rice and pasta, and beans, peas and lentils.

7. Read food labels
Knowing how to read food labels can help you choose healthier options. Use the calorie information to work out how a particular food fits into your daily calorie allowance on the weight loss plan.

8. Use a smaller plate
Using smaller plates can help you eat smaller portions. By using smaller plates and bowls, you may be able to gradually get used to eating smaller portions without going hungry. It takes about 20 minutes for the stomach to tell the brain it's full, so eat slowly and stop eating before you feel full.

9. Do not ban foods
Do not ban any foods from your weight loss plan, especially the ones you like. Banning foods will only make you crave them more. There's no reason you cannot enjoy the occasional treat as long as you stay within your daily calorie allowance.

10. Do not stock junk food
To avoid temptation, do not stock junk food – such as chocolate, biscuits, crisps and sweet fizzy drinks – at home. Instead, opt for healthy snacks, such as fruit, unsalted rice cakes, oat cakes, unsalted or unsweetened popcorn, and fruit juice.

11. Cut down on alcohol
A standard glass of wine can contain as many calories as a piece of chocolate. Over time, drinking too much can easily contribute to weight gain.

12. Plan your meals
Try to plan your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for the week, making sure you stick to your calorie allowance. You may find it helpful to make a weekly shopping list.

Eat normally, but make sure that it is healthier. Eat less volume than what your normal intake is.

You are doing great at 5 lbs a month loss. Don't ruin your metabolism now being so close to your goal. The body will get stressed and you will eat less, exercise more and lose nothing . I did this. I am resetting which takes time but will be worth it in the end. Feed your body the nutrition it needs. Do not stress it.

I found that a 250 deficit in calories and 250 in exercise to figures entered as sedentary served me well. Don't go less than 500 less in RDI or over exercise to the extreme. That backfired on me. Anyone can check out my January calendar and how it slowed my metabolism since. I am currently resetting it slowly, as the body needs time to know what to do with the food rather than storing it as fat.
