June 5, 2008 12:00 am

The National Weight Control Registry is a list of people who have lost at least 30 pounds of excess weight and kept it off for at least one year. When asked about their weight-loss maintenance diet, most women in the registry report consuming about 1300 calories a day and most men, about 1700. Both report consuming just under 25% of their calories from fat. Here is what a day’s menu might look like at those levels:
