Breaking through the Weight Loss Plateau

weight loss plateaus    weight loss barriers

Dear Editor,
I've been dieting for 4 weeks and have reached a standstill. I can't seem to lose weight anymore and breaking through this weight loss plateau seems impossible. Do you have any words of wisdom.
Dear Reader
When you reach a weight loss plateau, try to increase your exercise routine. It's normal for your metabolism to slow down when dieting. By increasing your exercise duration, your body burns more calories resulting in weight loss. If you're not doing any exercise, this is a good time to start.
If you walk 3 times a week for 20 minutes, consider extending your walk for another 15 minutes. The best way to get through plateaus is to exercise a little more (don't over do it or you'll get discouraged) to increase your metabolism. The increase in overall caloric burn will create weight loss in due time. 
Breaking the weight loss barrier when you plateau can be frustrating but keep in mind this process does not happen overnight. Instead of weighing yourself everyday to see how much weight you loss, weigh every 2 or 3 weeks and you'll see your weight trend going down.
Your problem is common to anyone who is dieting for weight loss. Don't get discouraged, you'll start losing weight again but be patient,  increase your exercise a little more and don't focus on the scale ... weigh yourself every few weeks.
