Best way to push through a weight loss plateau?

Sat 2 Jan, 2021 02:52 am
Happy New Year everyone!

Does anyone know what's the best way to push through a weight loss plateau when you've been in a calorie deficit for a prolonged period of time? Also, how can you lose the last few extra pounds without further reducing your calorie intake if you're already eating, say 1200 calories a day?

I also exercise about 5 hours per week.

Someone I know who is in good physical shape suggested reducing carbs instead but he's male and I am female so I don't know if that makes any difference in terms of weight loss strategy?

Carbs might do it, so could, potentially, weight lifting. With weights, you may find that your numbers go up at first.

A diet and exercise website like Sparkpeople or Livestrong would be a good place to start.

I am not affiliated with either.

yes I have experienced this several times. I do not know why the weight is stalling sometimes despite being on a calorie deficit.

However, with time the weight goes down. I also think, that in many cases the weight loss after the stalling period is faster than before.
In the graph below there is a so called fake weight loss plateau, but when analyzing the data thoroughly it turns out that there was no real stalling in weight loss.
