8 Tips To Get Past Weight Loss Plateau
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Even highly motivated and disciplined people who lose weight successfully for some time are stumped when they encounter weight loss plateau. It means that their weight stop declining further. They do not know how to get past it. If you are one of them, this article is for you. Here are the tips:

1. Reassess your weight loss goal

Are you sure you have not already achieved the right weight loss in view of your individual health needs? This may be the reason you have reached the weight loss plateau.

Losing more weight than your body naturally allows may damage your health. So, consult your weight loss expert to set a realistic goal.

2. Don’t go passive after the gym

Some people think that they do not need to do any more exercise after spending three/four days per week in the gym. If you are involved in sedentary and passive jobs, you will be undoing your weight loss.

The best course is to remain as much physically active as you can in your normal routine. For example, use stairs instead of lifts; use cycle instead of car wherever possible.

3. Modify your workout

One reason why weight loss plateau occurs is that your body becomes strong and adapts to the workout. It starts burning less calories or fat and stops losing weight.

You should, therefore, either increase the duration of the workout or its intensity to break out of the weight loss plateau.

4. Go back to nature

Think of the people living away from the urban life or those who lived closer to nature or rather were part of it in, say, the Stone Age.

They remained very active, ate raw foods, had fewer needs and lived a comparatively stress free life. They never faced obesity problems.

5. Keep a fast now and then

Studies have found that intermittent fasting – IF—speeds up the weight loss process and can help overcome the weight loss plateaus. If you cannot live without your routine food, you can fast on fruits, soups, vegetables or salads. Or, you may skip dinner/lunch/breakfast.

6. Maintain a journal

This is a very important and yet more neglected step. It has been found that those who maintain a record of their lapses and successes lose weight much faster than those who don’t in the same period.

7. Check your motivation levels

People often tend to cool down after a few days of zealous efforts. There may be several reasons including monotony, laziness, lifestyle pressures and above all weight loss plateaus.

You must try to boost your motivation level by joining some weight loss clubs online or revisiting your weight loss goals.

8. Use weight loss pills

The two popular weight loss pills in the market are Alli and Proactol Plus. While Alli is reported to cause embarrassing involuntary and greasy anal leaks, Proactol Plus causes no such problem.

According to its manufacturers, Proactol Plus is not a fat burner, but a fat binder. It is reported that it binds about 28% of the fat in the food you eat, renders it indigestible and expels it from your system.

It also creates a feeling of fullness so that you lose craving for more food. Moreover, it burns around 250 calories daily even if you do not take exercise.

It is also claimed that extensive medical tests have proved that it causes no side effects and the company offers a 6-month money back guarantee if the consumers are not satisfied with the results.

You are welcome to read a review of Proactol Plus weight loss pills and also a comparative study between Alli and Proactol Plus.

Another thing a person can do is to recheck how many calories they should be consuming to lose weight. As you lose weight, the amount of calories needed will be less.
