Top Reasons Your Weight Loss Has Stalled

weight loss You’ve tried sticking to various diets and cleanses, the 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day workout challenges, and though you saw some weight loss, it’s now all but stalled. Why is that? 

Well, there are many reasons weight loss can stall. Learning why can help reignite your fat-burning efforts. 

You Get Used To Workouts 

While workouts can be initially challenging, eventually, your body acclimates to them. While early on, when you are new to a particular workout, your body may expend a lot of energy and calories during the workout, as you acclimate, your body becomes more efficient. It needs to spend less energy during the workout. 

So, while you may enjoy weight loss in the early stages of doing a particular workout, you may be expending fewer calories as the weeks or months roll by. One way to address this is to increase the intensity of your workouts by adding more sets and reps or trying to add more weight. 

Always speak to your doctor if your physical health is questioned. While exercise can be a valuable tool to lose weight, it may not be right for you. 

Your Metabolism Adapts 

The longer you diet, the greater the chance of you lowering your metabolic rate. So, the calories you initially consumed to lose weight may ultimately be calories that will help you maintain your weight, slowing down your weight loss progress. 

One answer to this is to cut your calories even further; however, it is best to consult your doctor. Cutting your calories too drastically can lead to health issues. 

Another answer may be to increase your physical activity to help you be in a caloric deficit. Again, consult your doctor about your ability to engage in physical activity and whether your caloric deficit is safe.
