One of the most frustrating things about most weight loss regimens is that if you hit a plateau, you might feel as though you can’t lose any more weight no matter what! It can be very disheartening and has been known to discourage people to the point of giving up. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way! Medically supervised weight loss can help you lose those last few stubborn pounds safely and effectively for the long-term.

Hitting a Wall
Hitting a wall in your weight loss program (hitting a plateau) can happen for a variety of reasons, but is usually related to your metabolism. During your weight-loss journey, your metabolism has been declining. If you’ve lost a lot of weight, then your metabolism is now burning far fewer calories than it did when you were at your heaviest. Eventually, the number of calories you burn will be equal to the number of calories that you eat. A slower metabolism means slower weight loss, even if you are still on a reduced-calorie diet.
To move past this weight loss plateau, you will either need to further decrease your calories or increase your physical activity in order to burn more calories. If you don’t make any changes to your existing program, then you will be able to maintain your current weight, but you won’t lose any more.
