How To Get Over A Weight Loss Plateau
You may be feeling frustrated because you lost a lot of weight over the last few months and now all of a sudden you've seemed to hit your weight loss plateau. Our bodies are sort of strange in that they adapt very well. Basically, the way you get over your weight loss plateau is to mix it up. Mix what up? Everything. Your body has adapted to the once new foods, exercise, and lifestyle changes you made months ago. So, now it's time to throw a curve ball to your body.
What Are You Eating?
Take inventory of what you are eating. Are you getting enough proper nutrients? Are you eating things you don't think have a lot of fat and/or calories (but actually do)? Are you eating 1500 calories one day and 2500 calories the next? If so, that could be a problem. There is nothing wrong with varying your daily calorie intake as long as you are maintaining your weekly calorie intake. If you are eating more carbs and less protein, try to switch it up. Try eating a variety of vegetables, protein shakes, and exotic fish/seafood.
How Is Your Exercise Routine Going?
What types of exercises are you doing? If you are just walking a few times a week, then it's time to mix it up with more intensity and weight lifting. Exercise routines need to be switched up in order for your body to be challenged. High intensity followed by weight lifting is a great way to burn more calories during your workout and for many hours afterwards as well. Running, swimming, and hiking are great alternatives to walking. If you have a gym membership, join a kickboxing or cycling class.
Mix up your exercise routine on a regular basis – every month or so to keep your body challenged.
Your body might just be stabilizing itself before losing more weight. If you change up what you do on a regular basis you will see more success. Remember that stressing about it will only add to the problem. Continue to eat well and exercise you will get over your weight loss plateau soon enough.
