You may be distressed to see the numbers on the scale creep (OK, jump) up: From here on out, you'll probably be gaining about 1 pound a week. This still only translates to about 300 extra calories a day, though.
Focus on eating high-fiber foods, including fruits, vegetables and whole grains; they will help you feel full longer.
