What to do when you reach a plateau in your weight loss
These tips can help you jump-start your weight loss.
Re-evaluate your habits. Look at the data on your food and activity. Make sure you don’t loosen the rules, letting yourself consume larger portions, or have less exercise.
Careful with calories. Stick to your healthy diet and remember that less than 1,200 calories a day may not be enough to keep you from feeling hungry all the time, which increases the risk of over-eating. Besides, reduced calorie intake should be sustainable. If not, you will regain the weight you have lost and more.
More activity in your day. Think about exercise and movement outside the gym. Increase your physical activity throughout the day by walking more, taking the stairs, and using your car less.
Review your exercise program. Increase the amount of time you spend in the gym and try mixing different exercise routines. For example, adding to your program exercises from Calisthenics or Plyometrics can spice things up and help you escape the fitness and weight-loss plateau.
