When you’re stuck in a plateau and unable to move forward, here are a few things that will give you a gentle kick in the butt and help you move again.
1. Check if you’re letting refined/unhealthy carbs creep into your food.
2. Increase the amount of fat intake per day. I do this by adding butter to my hot meal just before I eat. Do this for a period of time till you hit the next plateau.
4. Include one of these forms of exercise about twice a week
- Strength training
- Resistance training
- Eccentric exercises
Aerobic may not be as helpful as we may believe. (Read more). Do this for a period of time till you hit the next plateau.
5. Fast! Yes, I’m serious… Fast! If you’re shocked or depressed at the mention of fasting, you have no clue how easy it is when you’re on LCHF WOE. It’s not only easy, it’s highly beneficial. No wonder, all religions advocate some type of fasting. Pre-LCHF, I rarely fasted. Even when I forced myself to fast for spiritual reasons, I quite defeated the purpose by thinking about food during the time I’m supposed to be meditating and praying. But now, it’s so easy. I’m doing it to reduce fasting glucose and fasting insulin numbers.
