8 Top Tips to Break out of Your Weight Loss Plateau

Author: Raj Rishi

You have been successfully losing your weight for quite some time, but all of a sudden you find that the scale has stopped moving down even though you are maintaining your stringent diet and workout regime. You are stumped and disappointed. You need not be. You can get past the weight loss plateau by taking the following 8 steps.

1. Reconsider your weight loss goals

You may quite possibly have lost weight that your body actually requires to remain optimally healthy.

Check your Body Mass Index-BMI. You may have fixed unrealistic weight loss goal. Losing more weight may even damage your health. Consult your weight loss expert about the need to lose weight further.

2. Remain ‘active’ outside gym

If you visit gym, it does not mean that you should become lazy thereafter especially if you are involved in a sedentary job. You should avoid using car if you can go by bicycle or on foot. Use stairs and avoid lifts. Do the domestic chores like cleaning, washing, cooking, playing with your kids etc.

3. Redesign your workout

Normally human body becomes used to a workout in about four weeks. Our heart, lungs and muscles adapt to the new routine. In other words, they become stronger. They stop burning fewer calories than they did in the beginning.

 In order to lose more fat, you need to burn more calories. So, either increase the time and intensity of the workout that you are following, or, take up more strenuous exercises.

4.  Go for a primal lifestyleImagine the life in Stone Age when people were closer to nature. In fact, they were inalienable parts of the nature. They hunted for food here and there and ate raw vegetables and fruits. They took complete rest when they were ‘fed up’. They had limited wants and needs and lived a tension free life.

5. Intermittent fasts

According to an article published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, intermittent fasting –IF- reduces fat mass and improves the overall functioning of the digestive system.

You can live on fruits, vegetables, soups and salads if you cannot observe complete fast all through the day. You can adjust your fast/food intake according to your lifestyle. It is believed that if you do your IF accurately, you can overcome your weight loss plateau in a few days.

6. Keep a diary

Most people ignore this step thinking it to be a too simple and irrelevant  to be taken seriously.

Keeping a diary makes you conscious of your lapses and the need to overcome them. Several studies have pointed out that those who keep journals lose more weight than those who do not in a give span of time.

 7. Keep your motivation level high

Frustration and pessimism can kill motivation to lose weight. If  zeal to  lose weight is declining, write out the reasons why in the first place you wanted to lose weight or even want it now.  Find out a friend who is on the same mission.

If there is none in your neighborhood, find out someone on the internet. Join a weight loss community.

8. Take good weight loss pills

A weight loss plateau can be frustrating. You tend to lose your faith in strenuous exercises as well as a bland, tasteless and stringent diet regime. One tends to become cynical and likes to revert to enjoying the favorite foods. And why not? It would be inhuman to deny yourself the gourmet delights  of life.

The good news is that you can enjoy your favorite foods, of course, within limits, perform your routine exercises and also lose weight.

Try Proactol Plus weight loss pills.

Proactol Plus weight loss pills are made up of a natural cactus plant called prickly pear. Its fibrous ingredients bind with a whopping 28% of the fat you eat, stop it being absorbed by your body and pass it out. So you can continue to eat the food you eat daily. They also create a feeling of fullness and reduce craving for food.

They can help you to burn off about 250 calories daily without taking any physical exercise.
Proactol Plus pills have been extensively tested by medical experts and are certified to be absolutely free of side effects. They are easily affordable and above all, you get a money back guarantee if you do not lose weight.

Thinking of making a start?  Start right here!

    okay, so I know almost everything there is to know about losing weight effectively. I love to give advice to people on how to lose weight. Am I in good shape? Hellz no! I am 50 lbs overweight and 21 years old in college. I know all this stuff about losing weight, yet I cannot apply to myself. Why am I not strong enough to do this? I can barely resist eating. I love food so much. Taco bell, pizza, quesadillas, hot pockets, cola, the list goes on. I am addicted to food, I eat when I’m not hungry because I crave the taste of it. I have asked for the strength to resist these temptations but to no avail. It seems hopeless that I will ever be average weight. I dont’ need weight loss advice per se…I need ways to become strong enough to resist my strongest temptations…any suggestions?
    I should mention that I do get up off my butt and try to stay active, I’m not that lazy, it’s just that the amount of calories I am able to consumer is far more I can burn off at my activity level, in the shape I am in, I can’t do extremely heavy workouts, in fact running hurts my legs, any kind of weight training will deal a lot of pain, right now, I basically try to walk a lot, because it’s basicall what I can do right now without noticing bad side effects.

    You need to go to therapy to find out what the underlying cause may be. it has to be more than a craving…maybe a hormone imbalance or something medically or mentally out of whack. you need to start exercising and eat fresh fruits/vegies, berries and fiber when you want to eat the junk food. occupy your time with reading, walking, hanging out with friends, etc. attend church. having God on your side always helps.

    Here is a place that reviews a bunch of weight loss programs, dieting aides, supplements and so on. The site even has categories like diabetes, low fat and hypnosis. Pretty cool site.

    http://www.reviewplace.com/cat-135-DietsWeightLoss–Top-10-Weight-Loss-Programs.html

    Many of the programs listed have consumer reviews, so you can read what others think of the different products and programs before you decide on one for yourself.

    I want to lose 20 – 30 pound by the beginning of November. I need to know what foods to eat. I will be going and walking/running everyday after school as well.

    I’m 5’9 i have a large body frame. I weigh somewhere around 190.
    The healthy weight range for my height is 150 – 170.

    Any tips on how to maximize my weight loss in that amount of time. Thanks.

    you need to do 200 minutes of cardio a week. Remember fat does not turn into muscle, so you need to lose your fat while putting on muscle. The 45 minute thing is not true, but don’t over 60 minutes at a time.

    Do 5-10 minutes of cardio to warm up, then do your weight training. Do 30 to 60 minutes more of cardio, then go home.

    The best time to eat is just after your workout within an hour when your metabolism is raging. For your muscles, incorporate some isolated soy protein or whey protein. Whey is more potent but the soy tastes better!

    Don’t look at your scale as the be all and end all, but get a measuring tape to check your progress, and that will show more tangible results.

    Good luck and stick at it.

    Get off Depo. It is dangerous and completely messed my hormone levels up. I was having menopausal symptoms at only 23!

    When I switched to a different birth control the weight started coming off on its own…

    Diet wise, you know, no junk. no processed food.

    * Instead of having 3 large meals in a day, have 5-6 small meals. Make sure to keep a gap of 2-3 hours between two consecutive meals. It will help speed up your metabolism and result in burning of more calories. Have protein, carbs & fat in a 40/40/20 percentage.
    * Drink at least 8 glasses of water in a day. The more you increase your water consumption, the better it is.
    * Never ever skip meals or eat too less in order to lose weight. It will only make your metabolism slower, resulting in an even slower burning of calories.
    *check out this site to determine how many calories you need daily to sustain you weight – then eat less.

    Check with the gym trainers on food supplements like whey protein.

    Now I know you want a quick fix, too, and a pill that helps burn fat. Try Hydroxycut. Worked for me, but it’s not cheap & can wreak havoc with your system.

    That said, there’s a cardio training regimen called High-intensity interval training (HIIT). You sprint & walk. Can take only 15/20 minutes a day, 3/4 times a week. It is the current best way to raise your metabolism & burn fat. Here’s a site that describes it in detail.

    Also, to help tone that tummy try core exercises. A coupla sites:

    You seem to be doing good!

    The basics to losing weight is really so simple.

    Burn up more than you take in.

    So, eat healthy; like you’re doing, and drinking a lot of cold water.

    Exercise as oftn as you can. Weights are ok, but more cardio.

    Don’t eat fried foods. Don’t use butter/margerine…that kind of stuff. Stay away from dressings and the ‘fatty’ stuff.

    Your stomach will shrink and you won’t feel as hungry. You have to train it the way you do anything with your body. I think you’re doing great. Keep yopur food portions small, eat a little more frequently maybe, but keep the overall intake low.

    Good luck I think you’re well on your way, and I applaud you for your diligence!

    I want to detoxify my body and loss weight healthily and rapidly. I want to lose 90 lbs by the end of the year.

  16. Hanser says:

    I did fatloss4idiots diet plan and I lost about 50 pounds in not even 3 months. And I’ve kept it off for almost 2 years now. I found it to be the easiest diet because it pretty much told you what you could and couldn’t eat and you didn’t have to count points or anything like that. What I lost really isn’t typical for the amount of time I did it but I know others who have done it and they got really good results from it as well.

    I am 20 years old. 5’1 and 122 lbs. I have recently gained this weight. I used to be around 105lbs. I am planning to go on a juice diet as well as an exercise plan put to speed up this process I want to substitute a eight loss product or a fat burner…hydroxy cut… I want to get back to my old weight this month. Please tell me what will be the best product for my plan.

  18. Hanser says:

    try a hunger suppressent cuz exercise causes u to waant to eat more this will help with the cravings after a workout

  19. Hanser says:

    I want to lose about 50 pounds and I am worried about having saggy skin after losing the weight. I’ve already lost 10 pounds in two weeks. I want to lose about 40 more pounds. That said, how much weight loss would cause me to have sagging skin? Is there anything I can do to avoid having saggy skin after I lose this weight?

  20. Grace says:

    Don’t just lose weight, also define your muscles (pilates helps for that and it doesn’t make you look bulky). I think you would have to lose a lot of weight at one time for your skin to get saggy.
