Maintenance calories

I'm on the Keto strict diet, and on average I'm losing 225gr/day, which is 96gr above what Cronometer predicts.

225gr fat means 2025 calories.
Does that mean that to maintain my weight, I can daily consume 2025 calories + what cronometer alows me to eat now?

    It's helpful to note that you are not just losing fat right now, but a lot of water weight (we store each 1 g of carbs with 3-4 g of water), along with some skeletal muscle mass. If you are looking to maintain your weight where it is currently, I would probably just change the target for energy from "losing" to "maintaining", using your updated body weight.

    Eating what you've calculated in calories will likely stop further weight loss, and likely result in some weight gain.
