Target: Continued but less rapid weight loss that doesn't cause fatigue, in preparation for the stabilization phase.
How: 2 out of 3 meals a day should still contain only low calorie density foods. You reintroduce medium calorie density foods (particularly carbs), and can even have the occasional high calorie density treat at one out of your three meals.
