switch something up. Plateaus are a normal part of weightloss, and usually happen when you’ve been working out and eating better, so your metabolism speeds up. So eating the same thing and doing the same exercise ends up putting you at more of a calorie deficit than before. Which means you could be hitting the threshold where you need to add 200-300 calories of lean meats & veggies to your diet each day to help kickstart your body into burning energy rather than conserving it.

Here’s a Jillian Michael’s article that goes about looking at plateaus http://www.jillianmichaels.com/fit/lose-weight/break-through-weight-loss-plateau

I would say add some weight lifting and up the protein in your diet. Building more muscle will help you get through the plateu. Adding weight work outs made a huge difference for me!

Depends on what you are doing, but I find that  most people who are exercising are doing group classes and cardio and not enough weight lifting. It would be good to add in weights if you haven’t already. Just keep in mind that you still may not see the numbers on the scale move much as your muscle replaces the fat, which weighs more. But you will see differences in how your clothes fit, how strong you feel, and how your body looks.
