Your Questions About Weight Loss Plateau

Chris asks…

Weight loss plateau busting?

I recently lost about 40lbs. I did this through diet and runnig mixed with some MMA and calithstenics. I have been at a plateu for the last month and can’t figure a way to bust it. I still have plenty of body fat to burn off so I know I am not approaching my goal weight. Here is my current exercise schedule:

2 days a week of Brazilian jiujitsu/Muay Thai boxing two hours at a hard pace each night.
5 days a week running 3-8 miles using LSD/HIIT/Hill repeats to keep it interesting with some calithstenics such as push ups/situ ups/pull ups/lunges/etc

pn the diet side a nrmal day is:
Breakfast – 2 eggs/2 pieces whole grain toast/turkey bacon black cofee
snack 1- fruit and nuts
Lunch- sandwich (whole grain bread, lean meat, no dressing), banana, different fruit such as kiwi/or an apple
snack 2- greek yogurt and fruit
Dinner- lean protein such as fish or chicken breast, salad and a whole grain starch

no soda, only black coffee (one cup in the mourning), water (lots of it), and a glass of crystal light iced tea with dinner.

Also – Since I started plateauing my stress level from work has gone through the roof but that will come back down in a few months. Could the added stress be causing the weight loss stall? I try to get at least 7 hours but normally get at least 8 hours of sleep a night.

I would like to lose another 10 lbs in the next 6 weeks, what can I do to meet this goal?

themarc answers:

Aspartame in Crystal Light or soda pop will sabotage your weight loss efforts. Don’t drink anything but pure water. Don’t juice, eat the whole fruit. The fiber is healthy for you.

Dairy, even yogurt, is not healthy for weight loss. Instead, eat leafy greens, whole grains (not commercially processed, and not gluten), legumes. These are rich in plant protein, calcium, iron, and other nutrients. Don’t forget the whole fruit. Take ground flax seed for Omega-3 oils. Take B12 and D vitamins. Otherwise avoid oils, sugars, refined carbohydrates, and other food additives like MSG. Colorful vegetables are important too.

Chicken and other lean proteins have a lot of calories and very little fiber and are not necessary. They also contain too much cholesterol and fat. Professor T. Colin Campbell and many other experts recommend a whole plant based diet. Cut out the animal based food products, and you will lose weight.

I lost 80+ pounds without much effort by eating right.
