You workout 5-7 days a week. Your diet is clean and near perfect and your drink plenty or water. Yet, despite this immaculate routine, you just can't seem to take off those pesky few pounds that stand between you and your goal weight. The answer might be to switch it up. When you do the same thing every day, your body learns to adapt to the routine and eventually learns to do it all more efficiently. Meaning, you do and eat the same thing, but lose less weight as a result. To counter this effect, all you need to do is mix up your routine. If your cardio consists of treadmill running, try a trail run or hitting the hills outside. If you typically lift with dumbbells and machines, head to bands and cables to do the same workouts. For your diet, try switching up the types of healthy foods you consume. Trade in your apple for a plum, or your carrot for some celery. Remember, no"body" likes change... as soon as you introduce a postive change that weight will come off.
