Shattering weight loss plateaus!

January 30th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments


A lot of people report that they make good progress losing weight at first but then their progress stalls. Lets first look at some of the reasons that your fat loss progress can stop:

1) You have lost weight but not adjusted your caloric intake downward, this is the #1 reason for stalling. Remember that each time you lose 5lbs you need to recalculate your caloric requirements and adjust it downward.

2) The initial rapid ‘weight loss’ was just water loss. When you cut carbs and salt, a lot of water can be shed in the first few weeks. This is not weight loss! Fluctuations in your sodium intake can make wild weight swings.

3) The initial weight loss was because your weight was not measured properly. Even with an accurate scale, your weight can be off by up to 12 pounds! Please see my video on how to weigh yourself accurately.

4) You are too lean already. Your body needs a certain amount of fat (~6% for men, ~12% for women) and attempting to drop below that the body rebels. Lowering bodyfat further without loss of muscle requires tricking the body with something like carb cycling.

5) Your caloric intake is not what you think. You are not calorie counting accurately. You are not weighing/measuring everything or are not taking into account calories hidden in things like condiments and beverages.

6) Your have too drastically cut your calories and are fasting which burns muscle.

When your fat loss has stalled, hit the reset button on your weight loss program! Do the following for four weeks:

1) Use my calorie calculator and set the goal to be a 20% reduction in calories.

2) For two weeks weigh, measure and log every single item you eat and every item you drink and tally the daily calories on the free website www.loseit.com to make sure your daily caloric consumption is on track, they have an iPhone app too if that is more convenient.

3) Measure your weight accurately, every day.

4) Do a good basic resistance training program and at least 20min of daily cardio.

5) Don’t forget to drink lots of water and get enough sleep!

That will get your weight loss back on track. Thats all for this week, auf wideersehen

    You are cutting too fast!!!! I never recommend more? than a 20% caloric deficit. Any diet more extreme than that and you start to burn off muscle.

    You wanna give yourself ample rest time so that your muscle fibres can? rebuild especially with big strength exercises like deadlifts and squats. Get a good split routine going that gives you at least three to four days in between your muscle groups and you’ll get more gains.

    Hey scooby, I am …
    Hey scooby, I am 5’9 and my body fat percentage is 19.9% and I am sick of having no results through weight training and being on a treadmill for 40 minutes.I am getting absolutely nowhere. So, I have just started insanity and from the amount of sweat it produces, it’s fair to say that this is the way to go for my fitness goal. ? My question to you is, should I wait untill I am in the SINGLE digits of body fat percentage before I bulk up, OR should I do weight training ON TOP of insanity.

    its not possible to make your wrists bigger. to make calves bigger, stand on a stairstep? with the balls of your feet on the step, and the heel and arch of your foot hanging off the edge. next, raise up to your tip toes, hold for a second and sink back to the starting position. do 3 sets 30-40 reps each

    Hey scooby, this is? not really related to the video. While bulking, should egg YOLKS be part of the diet? For example If I’m making a high carb, high protein pancake with 5 egg whites, should I add? the 5 egg yolks aswell or just a few, or none?

    OK thanks for the advice, but if I have skinny wrists will it? be painful to perform heavy bench presses? And also if I have skinny ankles will it not cause pain when doing heavy squats?
