How to Break a Weight LossPlateau With This Easy Trick By James Ward CruiseControlDiet.com
The Problem• Losing body fat becomes next to impossible no matter how hard you diet or exercise.• Its extremely discouraging and can cause you to throw in the towel altogether.• But… theres a simple reason why it happens and an even simpler solution.
What Causes It?• In a nutshell, it’s your body’s way of keeping you alive.• When you’re dieting, your body will fight you to preserve energy (i.e. fat).• Leptin is one of the principal hormones involved in this process.
The Role of Leptin• Leptin is secreted by your fat cells and acts on the brain to control hunger.• When your leptin levels are high, youre not hungry.• Conversely, when theyre low, you seek food to satisfy your cravings.
Leptin Levels & Diet• When you start losing weight, your fat cells shrink and secrete less leptin.• This makes you hungry.• This is also slows down your metabolism (remember, your body is trying to preserve energy).
The Common Mistake• When the scale stops moving, dieters cut back on food even more (and perhaps exercise harder) in order to break the plateau.• This only makes things worse.• Body will fight “tooth and nail” to maintain energy balance.
What to Do Instead• Raise the leptin levels.• A 24-48 hour binge will do the trick.
What About Weight Gain?• It’s almost inevitable but it won’t last.• Once you get back on the diet following your binge those extra pounds will quickly fall off.• Furthermore, you’ll blow past your plateau and continue towards your goal weight.
