Anyway, now I am at 145 lbs and the weight loss has slowed down. I need to figure out what to change in order to lose the last 5 to 8 lbs and start thinking about maintenance strategy and how to approach it, trial and error or is there a tried and true format that works. I am hesitant to lower the calories even though weight loss is calorie dependant. Appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks.
I think that you might spend some time in this new “lean” state, before going feather to cut more calories. Let the body adapt to new position. And of cause while you getting leaner it’s harder to lean more
