If you have more than 30 pounds to lose you may find that after making a few healthy lifestyle changes your weight initially comes off fast and easy. But then you may hit a plateau or find the last 10 or so pounds impossible to lose. Here’s what to do.
Identify A Nutritionist
Even if you have cut carbs and sugars and found a diet that has helped you lose a solid chunk of weight, working with a nutritionist is key to both sustainable weight loss and losing the last few pounds. In fact, it is best to avoid fad diets altogether and work with a nutritionist from the beginning. What your nutritionist will do is provide you with a personalized diet that addresses your individual needs. And unlike most diets which are based on deprivation, nutritionists will prioritize recipes and foods that you naturally enjoy.
Improve The Quality Of Your Workouts
Did you know that working out is only about 10 percent of the weight loss equation? While only 10 percent you must make that percentage count. This means it’s time to kick things up a notch. Avoid the temptation to work out longer and instead improve the quality of your workout. For most of us, this means more strength training, not for bulk but for muscle mass. Consider working with a personal trainer or committing to a group resistance or strength-building class that will help you take things to the next level.
