How to Break Through a Weight Loss Plateau

Article posted in: Lifestyle HealthyHowTo

You’ve been following the Nutrisystem plan, and the scale has kept inching down. Your clothes are looser, and everything seems on track. You couldn’t be happier. And then, just like that, it all comes to a screeching halt. You’ve hit a dreaded weight loss plateau.

Plateaus are pretty normal occurrences when you’re losing weight, but that doesn’t make them any less frustrating. You see steady improvement week after week, then you can’t seem to lose an ounce. The first thing you need to know is that you can—and you will—break through the road block!

Here are some tips that can get your program jump-started again:
• Change your diet around a little. Have your dinner at lunch or introduce some new food, like substituting cottage cheese for your yogurt.
• Add some weight training to your daily exercise routine. This can help boost your metabolism.
• Drink more water. Enough said.

Finally, call one of our Nutrisystem Weight Loss Coaches. There are other plateau-busting tricks, and the coaches know all of them and can give you really good advice. Know that plateaus are only temporary, and whatever you do, don’t give up! That’s the most important thing.
