  • What do you do when you’ve been doing everything right and your weight loss has stalled?

    A plateau can be so frustrating, especially when you feel like your doing what you should – or what has always worked in the past.

    I gathered some tips from Health.com to help us out. Read the full article for more detail. https://www.health.com/weight-loss/weight-loss-plateau

    1. Do more strength training. More lean muscle boosts your metabolism and it doesn’t leave you as famished as a high-intensity cardio workout.

    2. Start measuring your portions. Overtime we can loosen our estimation of our portions and need a serving-size refresher.

    3. Try eating more! As you progress and workout more, your body actually needs more (healthy) food to burn calories.

    4. Add lean protein to every meal and snack. Protein will keep you full longer and may actually help lower your calorie intake for the day.

    5. Switch to shorter daily workouts. Shorter workouts may be better for weight loss, give you more energy for the day, and give you greater post-exercise oxygen consumption. (You’ll have to read the article for this one! 😀)

    Share below if you’ve hit a plateau or if you’re going to use one of these tips to ramp up your weight loss!

I think I get stuck in my head more than plateauing. I get overwhelmed with all of the different diets and ideas on what’s right and what’s not. I just spent an hour trying to find out if apple cider vinegar is good or bad for you and the answer I came up with is “yes”. -to both questions

Going back to measuring and journaling. Got the needle moving again.

So… I watched “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” for the second or third time in mid-December. I ordered a juicer and it arrived last week.

I started making one juice a day in place of a meal - mostly veggies with some fruit here and there. After a couple days, I bumped it to three juices plus some protein. Then today I did four. Plus two or three protein snacks - like eggs, chicken, salami, protein shake, etc. Kale, beet greens, and a variety of other vegetables actually keep my protein decently high without the additional protein, but it is nice to chew something a few times per day. ;)

And I have been losing 0.8 to 1.5 lbs per day while feeling full, happy, energetic, and, frankly, thrilled.

Furthermore, small issues with my health are clearing up one by one. My skin is looking more taut and clear.

I know there are no miracle cures nor miracle pills to lose weight, though looking through the myriad examples and stories on the “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” website, it seems extremely consistent and extremely healthy.

I have also found quite a lot of testimonials and examples of juicing helping people lose weight quickly with a ton of other positive health repercussions as well.

I’ll let you know how it goes after a few more weeks!!
