I feel I'm on a plateau. What can I do? — Mary L.
Thanks for the great question.
One thing that will bring you hope is that the LynFit Metabolic Boosting System works every time, no matter how old you are or how slow your metabolism is.
Weight loss on this system stops due to human error, so we just need to play diet detective and figure out what changed.
The fact that you say you've plateaued leads me to believe you were losing weight and then it stopped. Take a look at the following areas to find clues that will help you figure out why the weight loss stopped.
Here are the top 5 mistakes that turn the weight loss switch off.
1. Mixing complete protein shakes with milk, almond milk, or soy milk. Adding any milk is not needed and spikes insulin levels which prevent weight loss.
2. Eating too much fruit.
For the same reasons listed above (insulin spikes) we need to be careful we aren't consuming too much fruit or and any food such as carbohydrates like bread, rice, potatoes, and starchy vegetables like butternut squash. All spike blood sugar levels.
See the approved food list to double check your food journal or backtrack your eating from where your weight loss stopped and go back to only eating foods from the list only.
3. Eating too much chicken and not enough fish.
Most people stop weighing & measuring their food after a week or two, and our portions start to grow. Consuming too much of the wrong kind of protein stops weight loss due to the high amounts of fats found in foods we "like" and eat too much of. Go back to the metabolic boosting list and double check what types of proteins you're eating as well as how much.
My metabolism requires more white fish due to the iodine it contains. That fuels metabolism and because it's lower in fat and calories making it easier to lose weight. The same is true for fatty fish like salmon. They are higher in fat so we "should" eat less yet we eat more because our taste buds are happy with the higher fat content. Check the list twice to make sure what you're eating is on it, and you're weighing your food making sure it's ok and that foods like red meats aren't sneaking back into your life.
4. Not drinking enough water! Nuff said! Try recipes from the list for more ways to boost water intake.
5. Constipation! It not only masks weight loss it makes us feel terrible in the process. It's also a sign that you're not eating enough of the right foods like leafy green vegetables, but you may also be eating too many of the wrong kinds of foods like excessive higher fat proteins and not drinking enough water or getting enough walking in. Check the approved food list for servings of vegetables.
I also suggest that you be consistent with Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore daily as this will help you stay regular. Eat that apple every day at 3 p.m. It has a purpose. Drink water with lemon in the morning or hot tea, as they will help you go to the bathroom. My body requires a huge leafy green salad daily and 1 cup of cooked broccoli every night to stay regular, making eating nightly a no-brainer for me.
