How to Overcome a Weight Loss Plateau

How To Overcome a Weight Loss Plateau
Are you constantly exercising, dieting, and still can’t get past your weight loss plateau?!

 

Here are some tips on how to manage this:

1. Weight gain does not mean fat gain.  Assess the food you are eating because calories are not always the cause of weight gain. Sometimes bloating can come from too much sodium, or being a bit constipated or backed up. If you eat more whole foods and less processed foods, you can reduce your sodium intake and increase fiber intake to flush out the added weight rather quickly.

2. Nutrients you are getting – are you missing something from your diet? take multivitamin or supplement if you are lacking.

3. How much water do you drink?  If you are dehydrated you can easily overeat or your body will hold more sodium, again creating a bloated unhappy feeling with potential weight gain. Cleansing can help get rid of toxins, so drink your water at every meal and consider a 3-day Shakeology Cleanse or Thisilyn Cleanse. (I have had positive results with both of these, but no I do not sell them).

4. Take multiple measurements – body fat %, circumference measurements, and the scale. Don’t always rely on one number because you could making improvements in one place and not another!  The scale is sometimes a false reading of your true progress and can make you think you are getting fat when you are actually losing fat, holding water and/or building muscle.

5. How hard are you working? Increase the intensity of your workouts to burn fat faster, such as high intensity interval training or HIIT workouts.  Lifting heavier weights can also increase your metabolism for up to 36 hours.  Walking or jogging for an hour can be a waste of time if you aren’t burning fat.

USDA Contradicts Itself

USDA Contradicts Itself

The USDA has proposed $160 million toward marketing funds for beef promotion in 2014. Since production and sales of beef have declined, the USDA contradicts itself and takes it into their own hands to support growth. Physicians, researchers, and several medical organizations have recommending a reduction in red meat consumption, but the USDA is still determined to boost sales of meat! If people gave up beef for health reasons, will millions of dollars’ worth of marketing change their minds or go to waste?

Red meat is linked to a plethora of health problems, such as increased risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancers. Ironically, the USDA recommends reducing intake of cholesterol and saturated fat in 2010… but now encourages meat consumption? Check out my 7 Reasons to Ditch Meat article to learn why eliminating meat has been trending over the past decade. It’s never too late to make the switch and sub out red meat for low-fat and cholesterol-free proteins such as quinoa, beans, lentils, non-gmo tempeh or tofu. Plant-based proteins are recognized as healthful sources of protein, vitamins, and minerals with NO risk of developing chronic disease. Make the change and save your life. Don’t allow the USDA or the media to control your health. The USDA contradicts itself just like many media outlets do, and it may be better to take nutritional counseling from a more credible source.
