  • Yes, it is better to maintain than to gain. I am over weight and have been most of my adult life. It is best to lose the weight, but if you can't, it is atleast best not to gain any more!

  • Yes, it would be better to maintain to answer your question. I do think that if a person knows they are over weight they should try and exercise a little each day and get on a diet that is not devastating to make their body healthier.

  • Yes. It is better to maintain than to gain. However, if you are trying to lose weight but still are maintaining, something calorie intake or activity should be adjusted in order to lose.
