Overcome the Plateau: What to Do When You Hit a Weight Loss Stall

 Many of us have experienced it: tracking diet and exercise diligently while reaping the rewards from your hard work, only to hit an impasse in terms of weight loss progress. No matter what effort is expended in tracking these areas of our life, weight loss stalls. When this happens to us, understanding why plateaus arise is crucial in breaking free and getting back on track; in this blog post, we'll explore why they occur as well as simple strategies that may help break through them once and for all.

Increase Activity Levels

At first, weight loss programs usually yield rapid results. But as your body adjusts and becomes more efficient at burning calories, weight loss may slow. In such a case, increasing activity levels is one effective way to kickstart weight loss again - whether that means adding additional daily exercise sessions or simply intensifying existing ones; anything from running faster or lifting heavier weights will help get things back on track for you!

Change up Your Workouts

Doing the same exercises day in and day out can become tiresome and repetitive, leading to plateaus due to boredom or lack of challenge. To break free from this cycle, switch up your program with new activities or exercises; not only can this reduce boredom but it can give your body something different to respond to; leading to better results overall. HOTWORX's variety of physical programs that include infrared energy can help spice up your workouts and get back on track.

Watch Your Calorie Intake

As we work to lose weight, it can be easy to underestimate our daily calorie consumption. Even small snacks and beverages can quickly add up if we fail to account for them. Maintaining a detailed food diary is an invaluable way to track how many calories we're consuming on an ongoing basis; tracking every single bite and sip throughout the day gives an accurate understanding of your overall dietary intake and can prevent hidden calories from undoing your progress.

Make Sure You're Getting Enough Sleep

Sleep is essential to any successful weight loss plan. When we're tired, our bodies produce more of the hunger hormone ghrelin which causes us to crave unhealthy foods. Aim for at least seven to eight hours each night and follow a consistent bedtime routine so your body knows when it's time for bed.


Staying hydrated is integral to maintaining good health and helping with weight loss. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day keeps you feeling full, curbs cravings for unhealthy snacks, and keeps your metabolism functioning at its peak - particularly beneficial during intense workouts or periods of calorie restriction. So make sure you hydrate!

Avoid Binge Eating

It can be all too easy when trying to lose weight to slip into a pattern of restrictive eating followed by uncontrollable binging episodes. Unfortunately, this won't do you any favors over time; so instead it is essential that you learn proper portion sizes and allow yourself to indulge occasionally without overindulgence. Focus on finding healthy snacks which can keep cravings at bay without packing on additional pounds.

Stay Motivated 

It's one of the keys to successful weight loss is staying motivated. Set small, achievable goals and track your progress over time. Reward yourself with non-food items when reaching milestones and don't hesitate to seek assistance if you feel overwhelmed; with an optimistic outlook and the right approach you are sure to reach your goals in no time!

Losing weight can be a challenging endeavor, but it doesn't need to be impossible! With smart nutrition choices and regular physical activity alongside an optimistic attitude you will soon be on your journey towards reaching your ideal body shape in no time!
