On another tread I joined a Hi-jacking and went tangential on weight loss Plateaus. I have a 4 week long approach that has served me well in my 16 month journey. This morning I finally broke the 250 lb barrier and it happened on week 3 of my approach. Bicycling is really causing some profound changes in my body!
At the risk of being redundant the program is as follows:
Week 1 Eat more. Around 300 Calories a day
Week 2 - 3 Shake up fitness program. Do something different or add intensity.
Week 4 cut back on food.
Continue until next plateau.
My reason for posting is I want to be prepared for when this won't work. I know another plateau is ahead. Having a "Plan" to deal with it keeps my hopes up. Instead of thinking "I've failed again." I think ""What can I start eating that I know I can give up in 3 weeks? When should I eat it.? What sort of change should I make in the fitnesss program?"
How have you sucessfully handled plateaus?
