So you’ve been on this new diet or workout routine for a while now and things are going well! And then, like just about everyone does, you hit a plateau. Either you just stop losing weight, your waist isn’t getting smaller or your workout routines become boring. So how do you break through a plateau? You think back to the saying, if you keep doing the same thing, you’ll keep getting the same results. And this is when you know it’s time to switch things up.
I had been doing Paleo for about a year and could not believe how well it was working! I was losing weight, feeling healthier and becoming more fit. I would weigh myself and check my waist measurements once a week and marvel at the progress. That is, until I stopped seeing it. I hit a plateau! And this is when I made some changes. My workouts consisted of the same weekly routine using the same amount of weights every time. So I decided to challenge myself and up the weight a few pounds as well as add an extra cardio session each week (I was only doing one or two). I also decided to give intermittent fasting a try after doing a little research on it.
