So, what is a weight loss plateau? It basically means that all the fat that was on a continuous – and motivating! – decline suddenly comes to a screeching halt. It is a normal process to reach a weight loss plateau. As you near your ideal weight, your body will try and hold onto your fat stores. You need to stay motivated through it and look at ways to overcome it. Your metabolism will decrease as you lose weight, which is natural. Dr Kaur shares that “in my 10 years of experience, I have not come across anyone who has not had to deal with this weight loss plateau. But, at the same time, everyone has been able to overcome it!If you are persistent, you will get it;if you are consistent, you will keep it!”
The biggest key to fighting a plateau weight is “perseverance”! Take heart if you are experiencing the plateau, it is very common. To counter this, you need to re-assess your food intake regularly. This will optimise your weight-loss, and help avoid the plateau. Don’t let calories creep in through your diet. You need to keep check on everything you eat, from the condiments, to sauces as also if you are taking extra servings of food which are healthy.
Variety is the spice of life. Variety in fitness regime does the same. It also ensures that your body is not getting overtly used to, to the regular exercises you undertake, and keeps your body on its toes! Strategically placed cheat meals may also be helpful.
If your efforts to get past a weight-loss plateau aren’t working, talk with your doctor or a dietician about other tactics to try. Whatever you do, don’t give up and revert to your old eating and exercise habits. That may cause you to regain the weight you’ve lost. Celebrate your success and continue your efforts to maintain your weight loss. “You have tried hard to lose weight, and have come a long way before this plateau hit you. Do not lose hope as you are just around the corner to reaching your goals,” Dr Kaur advices.
