8 Ways to Overcome Your Weight-Loss Plateau


weight-loss plateauYou’ve been working out, eating right, following your Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing system and yet the scale hasn’t budged. You’ve encountered the dreaded “plateau.” But don’t worry—it’s normal and Isagenix® has the solution to this frustrating situation!

Here are 8 ways you can overcome your weight-loss plateau with Isagenix:

1.    Step Up Your Exercise. Exercise can boost your results ten-fold, especially if it includes weight training. Not only will weight training help you build lean muscle, which helps burn fat, but it can also help strengthen bones. Be sure to consult a health-care professional before starting any exercise program.

2.    Boost Your Protein Intake. A scoop of our high-quality IsaPro® whey protein from New Zealand along with 1-1½ scoops of IsaLean® Shake may be sufficient to provide an extra boost for supporting weight loss and helping you overcome a weight-loss plateau. Protein also helps to keep you feeling satisfied longer.

3.    Snack Smart. We all snack, right? Just remember to avoid snacking on high-calorie, nutrient-deficient foods. In other words, keep the cake, potato chips and ice cream out of the house. Reach for a serving of SlimCakes®, Isagenix Snacks!™, just a few almonds or even half of an IsaLean Bar.

4.   Make “Better Bad” Choices. If you’re out at a fast food restaurant and a greasy burger is calling your name, just choose a single-patty with lettuce and tomato and hold the cheese and mayo. Isagenix is all about creating a lifestyle—no one’s perfect. (Just plan your Cleanse Day for the day after your splurge.)

5.    Fill Up With Fiber. Be sure you are receiving sufficient amounts of dietary fiber daily. Fiber helps to keep you feeling fuller, longer while also keeping your bowel movements regular. Isagenix recommends gradually increasing fiber to 25-30 grams daily, in line with current National Fiber Council recommendations. Isagenix products such as Isagenix FiberPro™ and SlimCakes can help fill fiber gaps. FiberPro is a flavorless fiber supplement that can be added to shakes or any beverage. SlimCakes are a delicious oatmeal berry-flavored cookie containing 5 grams of fiber each.

6.    Avoid Sugary Drinks. These can add empty calories quickly and zero nutrition. It’s best to drink plenty of purified water and/or nutrient-dense sugar drink alternatives such as IsaFruits® or Want More Energy?® (check out our April deal on Want More Energy?). Make sure to add a pump of IsaWATER™ Alkalized Concentrate to every 8 ounces of water to not only neutralize free radicals, but also give your water a fresher taste.

7.    Banish Bad Fats. The “bad” includes saturated and trans fats. “Good” fats include olive oil, which is rich in oleic acid, and fish oil, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. To take full advantage of omega-3 fatty acids, it’s best to take a high-potency, high-quality fish oil supplement daily such as IsaOmega Supreme®New research also shows that dietary omega-3 fatty acids may be linked to lower body weight− that’s good news for overcoming that dreaded weight-loss plateau!

8.    Switch It Up. Sometimes getting into a routine can put your body into neutral. Push it past its boundaries by changing up your routine. Incorporate a 9-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System every now and then, try new exercises and instead of a slow, steady jog, try a sprint workout instead.

Whatever you do, it’s important that you don’t become discouraged. Forget the number on the scale and pay attention to your body, including the inches you’re shedding, how you feel and the way your clothes are fitting. As you continue to enjoy a reduced-calorie diet, providing your body with quality nutrition, and building muscle through exercise, you will get through the weight-loss plateau and the weight will come off safely. You’ll also be creating a true, healthy Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing way of life.
