Most people dread a weight-loss plateau, but when the scale won’t budge, you may actually want to celebrate. “It may be your new equilibrium,” says Tim Church, MD, MPH, professor of preventive medicine at Pennington Biomedical Research Center at Louisiana State University. Your body may be saying this is the weight it wants to naturally maintain, so stick to. What causes a weight-loss plateau?
During the first few weeks of losing weight, a rapid drop is normal. In part, this is because when you cut calories, the body gets needed energy initially by releasing its stores of glycogen, a type of carbohydrate found in the muscles and liver. A person may experience a weight loss plateau because their metabolism has slowed down. When a person reaches a weight loss plateau, they will no longer lose any weight, despite following a diet. Why a weight loss plateau may be a good sign One of the most frustrating parts of a weight loss journey is the dreaded plateau.
Most people start out with a pretty good rhythm of losing 1-2 pounds per week when starting a new nutrition plan. Any time you are switching up your game like that, your metabolism will respond in kind. Plateaus are also typically a sign you are getting closer to your goal weight. Typically you’ll lose a lot of weight up front, but the closer you get to your goal weight, the slower things go.
The other good news is after you hit a plateau, they can be worked through. The solution to fixing it and losing weight again can be unique for everyone. Here’s why: A weight loss plateau is a normal and healthy part of the weight loss process and it simply means that your body is recognizing that it’s a new smaller person—and it’s settling in and adjusting to being slimmer.
Other factors that can influence weight loss include thyroid or adrenal gland problems, medications you’re taking, pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause, and quitting smoking. But more than likel. It’s a sign that you’re completely normal and have hit a point that everyone hits on their weight-loss journey.
A plateau is a mark on the road, letting you know you’re heading in the right. “If you are successfully losing weight, you’ll most likely hit a plateau at some point,” Amanda Foti, M.S., R.D., a senior dietitian at Selvera Weight Management Program, tells. In fact, a plateau is a good sign — it indicates you’ve made progress. WHY DO PLATEAUS HAPPEN?
Many people experience a more-rapid-than-normal drop on the scale the first several weeks of a drastic diet change or calorie deficit.
