7 effective tips for breaking through a weight loss plateau

A minor calorie deficit is a common cause of weight reduction plateaus. Over time, your body adjusts to your calorie intake, making weight maintenance easier. 

Reduce calorie intake

Increasing workout intensity may be the greatest approach to lose weight. HIIT is great for revving up your metabolism. One to two HIIT sessions each week should incorporate sprints or fast-paced bodyweight movements.

Increase workout intensity

Calorie cycling can break plateaus. One to two “refeed” days per week, where you increase calories to maintenance level, works well.

Try weekly refeeds

Moving more throughout the day helps restart weight reduction. Set a daily step goal (10,000 is a decent benchmark) and try to meet it by taking the stairs, parking away from entrances, walking breaks, pacing during phone calls, etc.

Get in more steps

Common plateau causes are dehydration and constipation. Avoid dehydration-induced water retention by drinking enough water daily. At least half your body weight in ounces.

Increase water and fiber intake

Whole food nutrition improves fat burning and provides fulfilling nutrition. Diet should include veggies, lean proteins like fish and chicken, healthy fats, legumes, whole grains, and nuts.

Focus on nutrient-dense foods

Limit alcohol to lose weight faster and avoid plateauing. Limit drinking to one to two drinks and choose spirits or light beer for less calories and carbs.

Cut out alcohol
