It's bound to happen - you work your butt off, giving your workouts your all, and staying true to your diet. You lose lots of weight in the first couple weeks but then, your progress comes to a screeching halt. When this happens, it's frustrating, discouraging, and makes you want to just abandon the whole project. Of course there's a scientific reason for it, and you knew it was coming, but that doesn't help to take the sting out of seeing those unforgiving numbers.
That was me this morning.
Thankfully, I have an awesome nutritionist who always seems to get me out of my funk and bring me back to reality in surprisingly few words lol. He tells me "It happens. Keep working hard."
In addition to these words of wisdom, he often change up my diet too. There are two ways to deal with a plateau: increase your workout intensity, or change your diet. He likes to play with diet before increasing cardio or number of workouts. Think of it: it's much easier to cut 200 calories per day by decreasing your serving sizes than it is to find an extra 20 minutes to work out. Who has that kind of unlimited time? Not me! lol
