This is a problem that many people come across when they’re trying to lose weight. Whenever you hit a weight loss plateau, this is a sign that your body has acclimated to your diet and/or exercise routine.

In effect your body has become more efficient at burning calories. What needs to happen is you need to change things up a bit. Some simple things you can try are increasing your exercise intensity levels. Another tip is to change up your diet some. Try doing a low carb diet for 2 weeks then switch back to your normal diet.

Everyone who is trying to lose weight will eventually hit a weight loss plateau if they aren’t changing the things they are doing.

I’ll leave you some ehow links below that talks about weight loss plateaus and how you can speed up your metabolism.

Hope that helps and good luck.

    Try a thermogenic. It’s a pill that increases your body temperature that increases your metabolism that helps you burn more calories.
    Look into it.
    It’s called REDuction am/pm.
    Try more cardio, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)

    Even if you eat healthy now, try eating even healthier.
    Drink more water.
