Have you hit a plateau? Here are some things to consider:
-The scale might not move but your clothes are getting smaller. Tracking inches is the best way to monitor your weight loss progress.
-Eating too many carbohydrates. Everyone has different sensitivities to carbohydrates. Some people can lose weight eating 50-70 grams of healthy carbohydrates a day and some need to lower for a short time to below 50 grams of carbohydrates a day.
-Eat too much protein. We are told to eat protein to lose weight. Some people will only focus on protein and miss the importance of vegetables and leafy greens.
-Stress. Being in a constant state of stress does not allow your body to perform optimally. You will choose foods for comfort instead of health.
-Eat Real Food. Choose low protein, healthy fats, vegetables, and leafy greens. Skip diet food to lose weight i.e. bars, shakes.
-Eating too many nuts. It is easy to eat more nuts than what is recommended. If you can stick to 1/4 cup a day and feel satisfied after eating them than nuts are encouraged.
-Cheating too often. Sneaking in that cupcake and slice a pizza once in awhile is fine but when it starts becoming a habit than we have an obstacle to our goals.
– Exercise. Not exercising at all or not choosing the ideal exercise for your body type.
