Cross The Weight Loss Plateau

Written by Dr Michael McCoy

After some initial success with your weight loss campaign, the kilos have stopped slip-sliding away. What should you do?

Why the plateau?

One well-accepted theory goes that our bodies have evolved so that they're pre-programmed to react to hard times. If you're suddenly but consistently eating less, your body thinks there's a famine. It responds by trying to slow your metabolism in order to ‘defend' your current body weight.
