1. The First Things to Try

Here’s a list of things to do if you have been experiencing a fat loss plateau:

  1. Re-read the slow carb book chapters, and check ingredient lists of any pre-packaged foods you have been eating for hidden sugars, carbohydrates and other slow carb no-nos.
  2. Take a meal diary, either on paper, or using an online calorie counter like www.MyFitnessPal.com for 4 days – check to ensure you are eating enough (above 1500-1800 calories for women and men respectively), and to see any areas that could be changed, like cutting out cottage cheese, lowering tomato intake, increasing green vegetables, etc.
  3. If you have been using any kind of protein shake, discontinue use for a week and replace it with a whole food, like eggs, chicken, turkey, salmon, tuna, etc.
  4. If you have been taking any other supplements, then pause taking them for a week
  5. If you have been working out, then reduce workouts to a maximum of 2 for 1 week
  6. Check your water intake, and reduce sodium (salt) intake
  7. Have a proper cheat day, if you have skipped any recently. There’s a lot of data that shows a spike in calories, and a spike in carbohydrates both help the long term effectively of a diet like the slow carb system.
