Why does my weight plateau and not want to go away?

1. Is everything okay with the thyroid gland?

If you have hypothy­roidism, that is, the func­tion of the thy­roid gland is sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduced, it will be more dif­fi­cult for you to lose weight until you sort out this prob­lem. The first symp­toms of hypothy­roidism are increased fatigue, depres­sion, con­stant blues and apa­thy. Did you just chuck­le and think that in ear­ly spring and autumn this is a typ­i­cal state for every­one? That’s the dan­ger: by attribut­ing your con­di­tion to bad weath­er, lack of sun and the bleak prospect of liv­ing anoth­er six months in the dark and cold, you may miss the dis­ease. If you live in the state of “Life is decay” — urgent­ly see a doc­tor. You need to donate blood to check the lev­els of the hor­mones thy­rox­ine T4 and tri­iodothy­ro­nine T3.

2. Are you too relaxed?

If your life has been filled with pos­i­tive events late­ly, your loved ones are mak­ing you hap­py, your beloved is spoil­ing you, your boss is prais­ing you, and your friends are admir­ing you, we are very hap­py for you, but… it is this feel­ing of well-being and tran­quil­i­ty that may be the cause of a decrease in metab­o­lism. Peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing so-called “pos­i­tive stress” have a more active metab­o­lism and lose weight more eas­i­ly com­pared to those in a state of com­plete peace. “Pos­i­tive” stress is con­sid­ered to be stress from phys­i­cal activ­i­ty, emo­tion­al empa­thy with real peo­ple or char­ac­ters in books and films, and safe thrills such as those expe­ri­enced on a roller coast­er.

3. Do you eat so little?

What to do if the weight does not come off? If you esti­mate your food intake by serv­ing size, check the list of foods you eat. You may be eat­ing more ener­gy-dense foods, such as but­ter or cheese.

4. Are you getting enough sleep?

It’s no secret that healthy sleep affects the con­di­tion of the skin and over­all well-being. But did you know that it direct­ly affects weight? The sys­tem is sim­ple: to restore strength, the body requires at least sev­en hours of sleep per day. With less rest, the body expe­ri­ences a lack of ener­gy. Peo­ple suf­fer­ing from sleep depri­va­tion often choose high­er-calo­rie foods for snacks and gen­er­al­ly eat more. Check if you are not get­ting enough sleep?

5. Do you feel constantly hungry?

Usu­al­ly it is this feel­ing that pleas­es those who are los­ing weight: I’m hun­gry, which means I’m not eat­ing enough, which means I’m los­ing weight. But the feel­ing of hunger can play a cru­el joke. The fact is that when you are very hun­gry, it will become increas­ing­ly dif­fi­cult to stay com­mit­ted to the diet. Unbe­knownst to you, to sup­press this feel­ing, you may start snack­ing more often, which means con­sum­ing more calo­ries than you need to lose weight.

6. Aren’t you freezing?

If you notice that you are feel­ing cold more often, then most like­ly you have made a meta­bol­ic adap­ta­tion to the loss of fat tis­sue. Try tak­ing a short break from los­ing weight, this will help you over­come the plateau.

7. Or maybe you’re already thin enough?

The less body fat you have, the more dif­fi­cult it will be for you to lose weight. Per­haps you should recon­sid­er your goals and focus on main­tain­ing your results or build­ing mus­cle mass.

8. Do you suffer from constipation?

Not the most appe­tiz­ing moment, but let’s be hon­est. If your body’s excre­to­ry sys­tem mal­func­tions, weight stag­na­tion may be due to the fact that the intestines are full. Increase the amount of water you drink and eat more fiber: this will quick­ly and eas­i­ly cor­rect the sit­u­a­tion.

9. Have you overdone your training?

If you’re a reg­u­lar at the gym, it’s pos­si­ble that your weight has remained sta­ble because lighter fat is being replaced by heav­ier mus­cle. That is, you decrease in vol­ume, but not in kilo­grams. But is the num­ber on the scale the most impor­tant thing? If your waist has become thin­ner and your legs have become slim­mer, what dif­fer­ence does it make what the scale shows, right?
