    emoticon sometimes we all reach a weight loss plateau. What are we to do when that happens?

    DO focus on fruits and vegetables. Most American's don't come close to eating the recommended minimum of five servings per day, but vegetables and fruits of all kinds and colors should take center stage in a heart-healthy diet. They're rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that promote a healthy heart and body, plus they're filling and low in calories, which can promote weight management. Fresh, frozen, dried, canned (without sugar/syrups or added salt), raw, cooked—all fruits and vegetables are good for you.

    Try filling your plate 3/4 of the way full with healthy veggies. Make sure they are baked, roasted or steamed. This way you will be getting the most health benefits they have to offer. Such as fiber, antioxidants and vitamins.

    Double check what you are drinking. Some of us don't realize those delicious lattes and iced coffees are loaded with calories. Check out SP's Chef's Megs recipes for lo-fat & lo-cal coffess. They are so delicious.

    And last but not least, try revamping your exercise routine. That's right, sometimes that is all it takes. Revamping your exercise routine by adding a couple of new exercises or switching up a couple of things.

    Remember, a plateau is just temporary and you can restart your weight loss! emoticon
