Weight-loss Plateau: 3 Hidden Keys To Win That You've Been Missing All This Time!!!

Jun 6, 2008
You're about to learn 3 things that have been keeping you on that all-too-dreaded plateau... and how to turn them around right now so you can FINALLY shed those stubborn pounds!

But first, if you've been beating yourself up over this, the time to stop is now. These 3 factors are easy to miss, because they are not simply about exercising more, or about eating less. Exercising more and eating less do NOT work for about 97% of people struggling with a plateau.

By the way, I speak from experience, since I was once in your shoes. I congratulate you for pressing onward... most people would have already called it quits.

So, here we go...

***HIDDEN KEY #1: The Subconscious Influence***

Surprisingly, the most commonly missed reason behind so many weight-loss plateaus is not one about fat grams or metabolism- it's the experience of an "emotional plateau."

An "emotional plateau" is something that happens when you grow tired of the weight-loss process. And it's quite understandable. After all, losing weight does require a lot of effort.

When you're on an emotional plateau, your motivation is not as high as it once was. Subconsciously you allow yourself to relax a bit, snacking a few extra forkfuls here, and a few extra nibbles there.

Now, if you're saying, "You're wrong, I don't do that!", let me reiterate that this is something done on a subconscious level. You may not even realize it, and it occurs slowly.

In the end, those extra calories add up. Combined with the fact that your body has grown accustomed to your new metabolism, your weight-loss progress stalls.

An emotional plateau often occurs after you've already lost a significant amount of weight. The urgency of weight-loss is not as high as it was in the beginning.

The solution? You've GOT to take an honest look, and ask yourself if you're being as disciplined as you were on the day you began your weight-loss journey. If you do not keep a food diary, do so now for 3 days, recording every bite you eat. You may be surprised by what you find.

***HIDDEN KEY #2: The Fat Myth***

Another hidden reason behind many plateaus is a FEAR of eating too much healthy fat, such as nuts and olive oil, and the subsequent lack of healthy fat in the diet.

Most dieters eat very small quantities of healthy fat, such as of an avocado for one serving. However, research shows that healthy fats, especially coconut, peanuts, almonds and avocados, actually raise metabolism, and can help speed your weight-loss process.

Even though healthy fats are high in calories, your body utilizes them in a highly efficient manner. As long as you maintain an exercise program, your body will NOT convert healthy fats to the type of fat you're trying to shed. Plus, healthy fats will help to satisfy your hunger, and will reduce food cravings.

The solution? Increase your intake of healthy fats. Add nuts to salads, spread avocado on your sandwiches, and crack open a fresh coconut.

***HIDDEN KEY #3: So Much For Strawberries***

The third hidden reason behind many plateaus is consuming the wrong foods, specifically fruits, vegetables and grains. The key here is FIBER, but there's a twist.

Fiber helps you lose weight faster because it's filling and it keeps your system moving. But the twist is, while you may think you're making the best high-fiber weight-loss food choices, you're actually not. In fact, it's a mistake made by 99% of dieters.

For example, while strawberries are certainly healthy, they are a less effective weight-loss choice than apples, because strawberries are quite low in fiber. Romaine lettuce salads are a dieter's favorite, but lettuce is low in fiber as well. The labels on whole wheat products can be tricky to read... you may not be getting real whole wheat at all.

The result? You're not losing weight as fast as you should be, considering all of the produce you're eating.

The solution? You must investigate, and be certain that you're selecting fruits, vegetables and grains that are the highest in fiber. Your top choices will have 7 or more fiber grams per serving.

To SAVE you time, I've written a nuts-and-bolts guide revealing the high-fiber, weight-loss promoting foods, as well as the foods that are NOT worth your money. It's in my e-book, "Seven Secrets To Jump-Start Your Weight-Loss, Colon Cleansing and Constipation Relief!". I also give tips on how you can save money on healthy food shopping.

***LAST BUT NOT LEAST, STOP Making These Mistakes!***

Even the most health-savvy dieters are making mistakes every time they eat, that are leaving them hungry and are making their weight plateau worse. To summarize the information, I've written a FREE report, called "The 5 Mistakes You're Making Every Time You Eat!"

We've touched upon one or two points here, but to get the quickest weight-loss results, you'll certainly want the complete information.
