!!Hitting a weight loss plateau is really frustrating

All of the people who tried to diet somewhere in their lives know what I am talking about 

Those who are trying to lose weight often hit a time when the scale won’t budge, and this becomes really annoying and disappointing! We start to feel guilty and blame ourselves for that!!!  that’s for sure 

 

!But weight loss plateau is common, it can be overcome

 

6WAYS TO BREAK IT

 

 1Change what you are eating

 

If you are eating a moderate diet that is high in carbs, try now to eat less carbs and more proteins. If you are used to eat a cheese sandwich in the morning, switch to an omelette for example with no bread

 

 2Add snacks between your meals

 

When you eat small meals on different intervals throughout the day, you burn more and you break the plateau. Eat 3 main healthy meals and include healthy snacks like fruits, crackers, yogurt in between

 

 3Alter your calorie intake

 

Vary your daily calorie intake. If you are eating 1500 calories today, take 1200 calories tomorrow, 1700 calories the next day

This can be done if you simply double or divide the portion size of the lunch, add or remove a post workout shake into the diet, add or remove 2 juices as additional daily snacks

But don’t alter your calories by more or less than 300 calories a day

 

 4Change your workout routine

 

If you have been doing the same exercise for few weeks, try something different. If you have been using the treadmill for long time, it is time to try a new machine or attend aerobic classes

Your body responds quickly to everything new

 

 5Add resistance training 

Muscles burn more calories than fat. That is why building muscles is an excellent way to get a higher metabolism. Incorporate resistance training into your workout; add more weight, and more repetitions

 

 6Drink more water

 

Water has a direct impact on metabolism. If you drink almost 2 liters per day, you boost your metabolism

Be sure to drink extra water when you drink coffee and tea to conpensate for the water loss, because they are diuretics  

 

 

Every person is unique and body responds differently from one to another

Chill out and relax. Don’t become obsessed with your weight

Give your body and mind a break. You will lose weight without even thinking about it 😀
