Sounds like the same mularky that the body mysteriously alters itself to deal with impending starvation.
I can tell you that every time I even put on 10 lb, I can directly attest it to absolute un-abated eating, and eating more calories than I know I need to sustain my weight. And that eating is a mental choice to do so, not a physical one.
I thought you were telling me that you were obviously overeating at 265 ? I've bounced around between 140-145 for years now. I can easily envision gaining to 160. But I'd have to strain to do it. I'd have to overeat.
Whatever the case, we know that the vast majority of dieters gain their weight back. BUT, I'm certainly not telling you that you should try to gain all your lost weight back. I'm not telling you that you should try to gain any weight back. Just see how it goes. Maybe you'll be one of the fortunate ones who can maintain lost weight without white-knuckling it.
For me, that last bit is key. In my view, it's hardly worth the effort if it's always going to be an effort.
