We have all been there! Doing really well losing weight, feeling fit and healthy. Then it just seems that all the hard work and effort has just STOPPED WORKING!!
This is what is known as the weight loss plateau, you still have a few kilos you would like to lose to reach your goal and optimal weight for your height and age.
The body is very adaptable and what it is great at doing is working at maintaining equilibrium, otherwise known as homeostasis. Homeostasis is how the body maintains optimal physiological processes. This information is not included in many of the weight loss or dietary programs as these are usually short burst ways for people to lose weight. However if you are wanting to not only lose weight but maintain a healthy weight, your body needs changes, in the foods you eat, the types of foods and also when you eat them. It will be helpful to implement changes to keep things interesting as well as support your body’s homeostasis and metabolic rate.
