Needing some help friends!

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I am kind of in a plateau. I lose 2 pounds and gain 2 pounds. What do I do? I don't want to get discouraged. So before that happens I want to nip it in the butt! I have done so good and not had any terrible cravings or loss of control, lol. Can anyone tell me what to do to get over this hump?

    I got over my plateau by drinking a green smoothie in place of a meal (usually breakfast) They are very filling and loaded with good stuff that your body needs and not a lot of calories or fat.

    Do. Not. Panic.
    Do you track food? I had to start doing that when the scale wasn't moving (in the right direction).
    You can do whatever it takes!

    Make sure you are measuring your portions, counting all your calories and change up your exercise routine if you can. Also, be sure you are getting enough sleep. Sometimes I have broken a plateau by taking an extra rest day (or two) and making sure I get enough sleep all week. It's hard to know what exactly it is that your body is needing. Don't give up. Just commit to eating right and exercising no matter what the scale says!

    The way I get through it, is eat more fruits and veggies, if you get more nutrients into the body, the body will process what you do, and not hold you back. Good Luck!

    I would try to change your exercise routine around a bit.

    You have been doing really great so far.

    I haven't tried this yet, but I've been hearing really good things about the Fast Metabolism Diet. It seems to be a very healthy way to eat and could knock you off that plateau. It does require a lot of cooking so I don't know if you are up for that.
