10 Things That Can Help You Through A Fat Loss Plateau
Before we get started, I want you to know thought that your weight is not the only indicator of your fat loss. If your clothing size is going down, you see the difference in photos and measurements, everything is fine and working.
However, if nothing is happening, you may have lost a plateau.
Here are 5 things that you can try, to get through the fat loss plateau — and there are 5 more in today's video and podcast.
- Increase or decrease your calories — if you've been in a deficit for a long time, try to increase. If it's been just a few weeks, try to decrease, but reasonably!
- Increase your protein if it's not high enough. A good target to aim for is 0.6-1 grams of protein per one pound of your current bodyweight, but if you're overweight, use your healthy weight to determine that. If you're currently eating about 0.6 grams, increase it to 0.8 and see what happens!
- Increase fiber. Are you getting your recommended 25-35 grams a day, or are you way under that?
- Have a free eating day, when you don't measure or track. Relax and enjoy yourself. Don't turn it into a binge, but relax. It may help to boost your metabolism. And remember, no guilt
- Track more accurately. Instead of using volume to measure, such as “cup”, “1/2 cup”, “tablespoon” etc, weigh your foods. It's possible that you've been eating more than you thought, and that's why your scale is not moving.
