Have You Hit A Weight Loss Plateau?

By Gavin Walsh

Everything started off so well! You changed the way you eat to a more balanced nutrious diet, you began exercising and the fat started to drop off but then all of a sudden it halted!

So what happenned? More than likely when you changed the way you were eating by reducing your calorie intake slightly and started exercising you were burning more calories than your body was taking in hence the intial fat loss. But now your body is smaller you are burning the same amount of calories that you are taking in and therefore not losing any extra fat, you are just maintaining. Are you with me?

So what do you do now? The two easiest options are:

1. Reduce your calorie intake again, but be careful, dont restrict it by too much otherwise your body will go into starvation mode and store those calories as fat. Aim to reduce your calorie intake by about 20%, certainly no more than this.

2. Increase the amount of physical activity you are doing or change your routine. The chance are your body has adapted to the routine you were doing previously so you now need to give some extra spice either by picking up the intensity with some interval training or changing your weight training routine.

With the above in mind you should be able to get your body burning that excess fat again and say good by to that plateau. I recommend keeping an eye on your measurements so that you know if you have hit a plateau early otherwise you may waste weeks of effort before you have even realised.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
