Breaking Through a Plateau
Have you ever experienced a weight loss plateau-that frustrating point when weight loss slows down or stops even when you are exercising and eating right? Here are some helpful tips to get the scale moving in the right direction again.
Add some extra workouts into the week even if its 20 minutes here and there.
Make your regular exercise routine more intense. You can do this by adding short bursts of jogging into a walk or sprints during a run. Fit in some plyometrics in between strength sets.
Take a closer look at what your eating. Are you hungry all the time? Eat more healthy protein with your meals and snacks and less carbohydrates which can make you feel even hungrier a short while after you have eaten.
Mindless snacking often contributes to a stall in weight loss. Keeping a regular food journal helps keep this to a minimum.
