Steps to getting over a plateau:
Keep the faith. You may feel stuck, but you’re probably still losing weight—just not enough to register on the scale. (Hey—Even dropping a third of a pound per week means that in a year, you’ll be down a whole 17 pounds.)
Avoid fuzzy math. It’s common to overestimate calories burned and underestimate calories eaten. Look for places where calories may hide—dressings, spreads, sauces, croutons, and condiments. Keep a detailed food diary.
Put up some resistance. Increasing physical activity is particularly useful for moving beyond a plateau, because exercise both uses calories and builds muscle.
Trick Your Metabolism. Many fitness gurus claim that surprising your body with a change in diet, workout or both can shift you out of a weight loss rut. Change up your routine. If you are doing the same exercises over and over again, your body “knows” what to expect.
