Fitness Tip: Workout commitment without results?
You have committed to a workout and performed your exercise routine faithfully, but you’ve gotten stuck on a weight-loss plateau? Check your diet. Many people can say that they are definitely not overeating and can’t possibly “diet” more than they are. Are you eating the right foods? Are you eating enough? Some metabolisms need a “jump start” as your body has adjusted to your fitness routine. Check the portion sizes of what you are consuming, and be sure to consume a small healthy snack in between meals, and decrease your food intake during the day as activity levels also decrease as the day progresses.
