I’m not losing weight (Have I Plateaued?)

1. Ask yourself this #

The first question you must ask yourself if your weight has not been dropping or if you have not gotten the results you are looking for is:Have I done everything 100% exactly and precisely as my coach had created my plan to do? Have I measured all of my food with a food scale as I should? Was I 100% accurate and precise in measuring my food? Have I 100% done everything in my control?If the answer to the above question is “no” then there is your answer. Taking ownership and responsibility of your part of this is the #1 indicator to whether or not you will see results. If the answer to that question is “yes” then the remaining 4 tips apply to you.

2. Perspective – Fat Loss does NOT change week to week #

To be clear: fat weight does NOT change significantly day to day, it takes weeks for it to show up on the scale… if you are stressing yourself out by focusing on the outcome rather than the process… you will decide to quit pre-maturely – which is the opposite of what you want. Here is my biggest advice as a Coach: The #1 factor that causes people to not make progress is self-stress and quitting.  If the goal is lifestyle change, you’ve been in the program for barely 3 weeks… out of a lifestyle that is going to last you YEARS in which a few days or weeks is not going to mean anything…  – that’s not how long your transformation will take but I say this for perspective. 

3. Data Driven Decision Making – Water Weight #

The body holds more than 5-10% water when it goes through a detox or stress… for some clients who weigh 192 pounds, thats as much as 5-10 POUNDS of water that the body is holding on to at any given moments.

We have many clients on our rosters who weigh the exact same for 2 weeks and then dropped 5 pounds over night…. what changed? Just that the body got used to the new weight and felt comfortable to release the water.

That may or not be the case with you, but we need to collect the data and not make quick changes if we want to make this a sustainable change for you.

4. Expectations (12 step Program) #

Phase 1 of the Nutrifit curriculum is designed to help you 1) lose 5-10 pounds and put your body into a detox and 2) Teach you the skills required to be healthy.

It is not until you get to Phase 2 will you notice another drop in weight.   

5. Weekly Plan Updates #

This is why you have a coach. We have been doing this for over 10 years and have helped thousands of clients, I promise you, whatever issue you may be having, we have seen it before and we CAN help you get through it. We have 10 years and thousands of clients of experience that we use in order to build your plan. 

If you continue to to not lose weight (once the data is clear) of course we as coaches WILL be making more significant changes… but 1 or even 2 weeks data is not enough to warrant that. As long as you continue to stick to the plan, don’t worry, the outcome will take care of itself!
