If more than 3 weeks have passed since you started following the meal, don't worry, it's just time for a weight plateau. This is normal because the human body is a complex and very smart mechanism with excellent adaptability.
While staying in a calorie deficit for more than 3 weeks, the body's metabolic processes are being rebuilt, and it tries to switch to "energy saving mode."
But this is only a temporary thing, which can be solved in several ways:
- Just keep eating according to the plan.
After a few more days, you will continue losing weight.
- You can have a "cheat day".
Allow yourself on this day one or two servings of dessert, french fries, or other food you are craving.
- Change the number of meals in the plan.
if you have three meals a day, go to 4 or 5 meals a day to increase your metabolism).
- Don't forget to drink enough water!
Try drinking 2 glasses more than usual.
- It is important to recover after training and get enough sleep.
Also, if you started strength training, then you might begin to gain muscle. In this case, the fat goes away, but the muscles grow, and therefore the numbers on the scales do not change.
You can start monitoring body measurements and focus on their reduction and not on losing weight.
- Please do not forget to update your weight in the application, so the calories in the plan are recalculated.
If you stopped losing weight before or during menstruation, this is not a weight plateau. In this case, it's just the standard fluid retention and swelling associated with the phase of the cycle. You just need to wait and follow the plan.
