For most cases a caloric deficit of 10-15% works best and ones that create a greater caloric deficit generally causes more muscle loss rather than fat loss.

Understanding the science behind that diet is what's helped me maintain my weight loss and make good choices that fit in with my diet no matter if I'm cooking or at a restaurant or at a party or whatever.

I've never been on WW but I lost over 110 pounds in the past couple years on my own. (I was a size 22/24, I am now an 8/10)
No pills or anything, just healthy eating and near-daily exercise. (cardio, weight lifting and stretching)
I have maintained my weight for a year now and still do the same things. I think it's possible to still be a foodie and eat in a healthful manner. Moderation really -is- key.
Some snacky things that I like:
Lunchmeat wrapped around celery sticks, bell pepper slices or other vegetable (ha ha! hides the vegetable) Just watch the salt
