Question by Azursan: How to break a weight loss plateau?
I’ve hit a plateau in my weight loss. I’m exercising at least 5 days a week and I’ve cut out unhealthy food. I was losing 2lbs a week for a while, but now I’ve stopped. How can I break this plateau and start losing again? I’m nowhere near my goal.

    Keep doing exactly what you are doing and be patient.. you will start losing weight again soon. Remember not to starve your body, eat plenty of protein and you should be fine.

    Patience 🙂

    Change up your exercise. Up the intensity, or try to go for a little longer. Reevaluate your diet and make sure you’re not sabotaging yourself. Make sure you keep at it, you will eventually start losing again. Good luck!

    mix up your routine. do something different for a while..especially if you walk into the gym or start your work out the same every time and do the same thing over and over in the same order. your body’s become used to the routine..mix it up

    EASY! Change up your work out routine! Chances are that your body has adapted to your routine (muscle memory). It doesn’t require much, lighter weights, higher reps or heavier weights, less reps which I advise even for women). Also, make sure you really are pushing yourself hard enough while working out…and be sure not to overtrain! Also, you really should take a good look at your food you eat. What you ‘think’ may be healthy may actually be your demise! AND…drink water! and then, drink water!! Water flushes the fat out of your system so if your not gettin enough… you can not flush it out!
