I have reached a plateau in my training/weight loss, what should I do?

Gilad: The word "plateau" in my opinion is often over-used. It is typically a condition that describes professional athletes who have been over-exerting their bodies on a regular basis and are in need of more rest. Many times it will happen after months of intense competition.

In the case of us "regular folks" we tend to use that term when, for some reason, our weight loss has stopped for a period of time or when we feel like we are not improving in our fitness program.

Remember, when you are on a weight loss program and are working out, you are losing body fat and gaining muscle at the same time.  Often the scale will not show weight loss because of the simple fact that - the muscle you gained weighs more than the fat you lost! - Also keep in mind that muscle takes up less space than fat in the body because muscle is denser.  That is why often you will see inches lost but not weight loss...

I would simply stick with the program understanding that the body needs time to adjust to the new regimen.  If you are eating healthy balanced meals and adjusting your fitness program as you are becoming more fit, you will keep improving!
