Plateau Busters - Part 1

Eat the Right Nutrients at the Right Times


  • Starvation mode really only applies when you are literally starving ...and it still won't make you gain weight.. Now it's true that it's probably hard to get in enough nutrients below a certain level and I do agree that eating too little tends to make people want to go overboard when they do eat. - 10/12/2015 7:21:57 AM
  • I really shouldn't read the comments sections - 8/30/2015 2:44:12 AM
  • This "starvation mode" thing is bogus and I'm always sad to see a reputable site promote it. Sure, you typically need around 1200 calories per day to get the minimum amount of nutrition necessary for most people, but eating less won't cause you to gain weight. Routinely eating fewer than 1200 Kc for weight loss just typically leads to binging, "cheating", and unsustainable habits. - 4/11/2015 7:53:12 PM

    If you consume less than 1200 calories your body is not getting all the nutrients that it needs. - 3/27/2013 3:02:43 PM
    This came at a good time for and my workout buddy have been trying to figure out why we hit a plateau and this could be it...Our level of active has so increased since we started working out....and we have stayed at the same calorie intake since we started loosing weight...So we are going to give this a try....Thank you - 9/30/2012 1:01:38 PM
  • I am glad they put this up because I used to be 230 lbs. and got down to 145 lbs. but I hit a plateau and I just gave up and now I am 162.8 lbs. Now I'm gonna be more fit, follow these tips, and exercise more and what not :) Oh yeah and this time I'm toning because I didn't tone up last time neither, my maximum goal is 120-110 lbs. I'm only 5'2". - 6/7/2012 6:09:18 PM
  • I am at a total loss as to how to get to the page where we input our info to get our caloric needs figured out -it's been over two years, and I need to review it. The links in artcicles only lead me to ads. Where can I get to that page so i can make any changes necessary? - 9/14/2011 1:34:40 PM
  • I need to bring my FOCUS back . Instead of sitting on the couch watching tv I need to get up and do crunches or lift some weights. Once started it's not so hard. - 7/17/2011 6:51:37 AM
  • Good information. - 7/14/2011 3:36:09 AM
  • This article came at a perfect time! - 12/7/2010 4:21:18 PM
  • I discovered a way to break through plateaus. It started with ExerciseTV on DEMAND TV with Comcast. I did Jillian Michaels 30 min. videos. 1 minute cardio,1 minute light weight training. You keep alternating the cardio with the weights for 30 minutes. All of a sudden, the weight just started to come off easily. I'm 2 lbs. away from my Spark goal of 150 lbs. , but I'd like to lose about 12 more to reach 138. I don't know if this "trick" will work for everyone, but it's worth a try. Your heart rate stays elevated for the whole 30 mins. thus burning fat. I try to do two 30 min. videos a day. - 12/7/2010 7:28:42 AM
  • I too have reach a plateau of sorts. When I got back from a months vacation, I did not go back to tracking my meals like I should have. I always begin in the mornings and slack off by lunch time. Looks like I know what my problem is but lack motivation. - 9/24/2010 6:12:29 PM
  • I'm down to my LAST 3 POUNDS to goal weight and having quite a time busting through to get them off. I know that I really need to ramp UP my exercise, but having real trouble finding the time to do that. Just gonna have to find it, somehow. - 7/17/2010 8:40:47 AM
  • One key comment in the article.....adjust your calorie intake for the level of activity!!!!!!! You have to pay attention to that one or your body goes into starvation mode and keeps storing calories..... - 7/8/2010 10:27:52 AM
