As a Certified Nutritionist, I’d say the number one issue I see in women who have hit a weight loss plateau is the result of them working out too much and not eating enough! It seems contradictory, but the moment they give their bodies adequate resources, their bodies are no longer in what I call “preservation mode” and the weight loss continues. When we appropriately fuel our bodies, the body will use what it needs and make waste of what is left. I think too many people in an effort to lose weight work out more and eat less, which makes sense for a bit, but is ultimately not sustainable. As long as you are giving your body whole foods (nothing processed) and organic as much as possible, it's difficult to not lose weight. If someone hits a plateau there is a good chance their body needs more fuel than what is being provided. Our bodies are finely tuned machine. We must fuel them as such.
