Remember: the key to maintaining your weight is to balance calories in vs. calories out. When you eat more calories than you need it means you will gain weight. Use the calorie calculator to see how your meals, snacks and activity fit into your calorie needs for the day. Planning is also key – download this free “Cook This, Buy That” meal planner and shopping list to make meal planning easy.
