One of the biggest diet motivation-busters is the dreaded weight loss plateau.

You’ve been doing everything right, exercising and eating well, and the numbers on the scale have been steadily dropping.

Then suddenly: NOTHING…

There are so many normal human things that can be causing this!



– A little more ALCOHOL than usual

– Calorie Balance hasn’t been as tight

– Salty foods and not enough water

– Changes to water intake over the week

– Cycle changes and female ovulation

– Eating out / travel

– Sickness / OTC Drugs / Steroid use etc.

– Introducing new meds like anti-depressants, etc.

– Surgeries and the body’s ability to recover

– Increases/Decreases in Energy expenditure

– Sun Exposure

– Hormone changes and HRT


Being patient w/ our body means that we have to accept that we’re living in a moment of uncertainty and when our brains loooove certainty it can make it feel very difficult.

Impatience is a big issue!

In the last few years, I’ve really seen impatience being a big issue for business owners, and anyone trying to make a big change too of course.

Try to remember that we cannot control most of what we are trying to control.

Live healthy and be happy.
