Have You Hit The Fat Loss Plateau.

Yep your probably thinking the same thing…⠀

Have been dieting for a couple weeks now, been exercising regularly, everyday you jump on the scale and nothing changes…⠀

W. T. F. 😣⠀

Why does this happen why do we seem to be losing fat effortlessly or consistently but one day it just stops and you aren’t seeming anymore progress?⠀

A couple things could be happening…⠀

1️⃣ you have been dieting for a long time. Yes slow but steady can win the race but dieting needs to be somewhat quick a strategic. Get in to a fat loss phase, crush it, and get out. Most people stay in a fat loss phase for to long. Only promoting plateaus and slows in progress.⠀

2️⃣ you have been making too small of adjustments. Yes a deficit doesn’t cause weight loss but just like increasing calories in incremental amounts can limit fat gain, decreasing calories in incremental amounts can limit fat loss. The body responds to slightly bigger drops in calories with frequent visits at maintenance a little bit better.⠀

3️⃣ make sure you have actually hit a plateau before you go assuming the worst. Weight loss is never linear and there could be a week or two where you don’t see any change. But once you ready to call it quiets on week three you’ll see a huge swoosh in weight come off. I would classify a plateau as 3+ weeks of make adjustments but seeing zero change.⠀

Fat loss plateaus do happen and they can be frustrating. But don’t let them derail you from your ultimate goal. You just gotta stick with it and reassess what you’ve been doing and what adjustments you need to make moving forward.⠀

If you’ve been experiencing a plateau lately shoot me a DM. I’d love to get a call with you and discuss what we can do moving forward to get you over this hump!🙌🏼⠀
