3 Awesome Waist Trainer Cinching & Butt Shaping Moves For a Sexy Hourglass Body  

Look hot enough to make Jennifer Lopez envious without starving or over training!

 

Here’s the Question of the week ….

Hi Victoria,  I am totally psyched with your new Waist Cincher and I love the feeling. My body feels so supported and strong. I am glad. I didn’t listen to all those negative magazine articles. My mom had been wearing girdles and now body shapes as long as I can remember, and she has never been hurt wearing one. Every time she had one of us kids, she would get out her really thick girdle and wiggle her way in it. She said there was no way she was going to let my poppa look at other women, just because she had kids. Her body is still killer today and they are totally still attracted to each other.

I remember one Sunday, we were all in the care ready to go to church and we had to wait for her. When she finally made it into the car, we asked her what took her so long and she said. “I had to tuck in Bobby’s extra fat!” Bobby was my little brother. At the time he was six months old. What she was saying is, I was stuffing my belly into my girdle. She was so committed that I think it just sunk into my mind as something you do after you have babies.

I have had two beautiful babies and totally did the girdle thing. Now I am so excited to do the Waist Trainer thing because it is so much prettier and seems to be scientifically designed somehow.

It’s kind of weird how just putting it on makes me feel taller, thinner and sexier, it’s like I lost weight instantly.   How funny, because I have not lost a pound but my waist is actually getting smaller. I rub in the Extreme Slimming Gel twenty minutes before I put it on and I also use the Skin Tightener after I shower at night on my abs and let it absorb completely into my skin before I put on my night gown or pajamas. Am I getting psychosomatic symptoms or is this real?

I think I may be eating less and I am definitely more aware of how I sit, stand and move. Maybe I am repositioning my structure as you talk about in the guide.

Sorry for rambling, on to my question. I am doing so good wearing my trainer, but I want to lose weight too. I’m a little frustrated and I need to get a good plan for a workout and eating schedule.

I know you say that I can wear my waist trainer during my workouts, but I am nervous. I don’t want to get injured or look like an idiot wearing it to class and the gym. And I love the secret Ab video you gave me. Can you suggest some more moves I can do at home to keep shrinking my waistline and help me get a sweet hourglass figure? It is so popular and I have been secretly thinking about it. I think it will be more natural for me since I have always been on the thick side. It would make me so happy to finally love my body! Dalia

Hi Dalia,

I totally understand your frustration.  I had a competition, a natural bodybuilding show. I was also doing a celebrity fitness workout series for Nike and had a ton of pressure to look hot and be able to fulfill all my professional speaking and modeling obligations at the same time.

No matter what I did I just couldn’t seem to get my labs totally ripped and lower belly flat.  I was so frustrated.

I had a deadline of six weeks before I had to go onstage again in front of professional judges, family, friends and the worst critics of all, my peers who can be brutal with criticism.

It‘s amazing how your mind plays tricks on you when you compare yourself to others all the time.  Many times we don’t even see our strengths because we run around playing victim to every little thing that happens to us and that clouds our thinking.

Toned Thighs, Round Butt Shaping Moves

You’re Not Alone, Lean Legs and Toned Thighs are on everybody’s mind!

YEAH to Shape Magazine for doing an article like my Thin Thighs Program.

I picked up a magazine and it had an article about dressing for your age. R U kidding me? It said not to wear a mini skirt after a certain age.  Maybe in your grandmama’s day, not now!

Who cares what the fashion magazines say about dressing for their advertisers who try to dictate how you look and what you wear. You can wear anything you want if you have the body for it.

Life is too short to follow worn out rules like that. You are here to wake up the world about what is possible and be a model for greatness.

Laidies..spelling!! Have fun, enjoy life, dance every day and wear what makes you happy! People get so crazy about misspelled words and lipstick on their teeth. CHILL, when we get too serious, we miss the simple joy and playfulness of being alive.

You can look great in a mini skirt at any age as long as you have the glam hams, style, and confidence to carry it off.

It all depends on how hard you want to work to get the body that will enable you to carry off that mini skirt after adolescence,  just be sure you have a good anti cellulite treatment .

Detox-Best Cellulite Cream

Awesome Anti-Cellulite Topical Fat Burning Cream

I personally love to have my clients do and do a few slimming wraps at home.

By eating healthy, staying hydrated, detoxing and doing the right exercise while practicing good posture you can look super fine.  You also must the doing the moves that give you the right shape.  Not every move does that. Some moves make you blocky, thick or stumpy looking.  But when doing good lengthening and firming moves, you can tighten and tone your lower body pretty quickly. If you train with a good well-rounded program you can be Mini Skirt ready after  a few weeks.

Let’s get to work so you have super looking thighs, so here it is.

 

Reverse Alt Lunges.jpg

Alternating Reverse Lunge

 

One of the best thigh exercises that you can perform is a reverse lunge. You have probably seen many variations of the lunge. All lunge moves work. So if you have your favorite one, please do that. but I really prefer a reverse lunge. It’s like the forward lunge, strengthens your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves but not allow your knees to extend beyond your toes. Ig you have bad knees, do not do this exercise, see your physical therapist for an alternative.

It is one of the toughest, but most effective and safest for the knees. It’s like the normal lunge, but instead of performing the exercise from a stationary standing position and then you step backward instead of forward  maintaining  correct spine alignment at all times.

Alternating Reverse Lunges

You can do it with a bar resting on your trapezius; holding dumbells or no weight at all.

  • Start in a standing position with a bar resting on your traps, a set of light to medium dumb bells in your hands or with  Your on your hips or hanging at your sides. Keep you head in alignment with your spine, your chest up, with your feet shoulder-width apart. This will be your starting position.houlders over your hips, and chest up.
  • Begin the movement by taking a step to the rear behind you, allowing your hips and knees to flex to lower your body. Your weight should transfer to the ball of the foot until your knee nearly touches the ground or to a level that feels safe for you. hold it one count then press off the floor with that foot and return to starting position. When moving, always use slow and controlled movement, paying close attention to proper mechanics and posture. The knee should stay in line with the foot, contract your core muscles to help with balance, endurance, alignment, and control. Do not lean forward or backward, keep your shoulders over your hips.
  • After holding for one to two counts, return to the starting position by driving through the heel of the front leg to extend the knees and hips.

This movement can be done completely on one side before switching or can be performed in an alternating fashion.

 Lunge Training Frequency: Do 20 repetitions of this exercise per set on each side. Repeat until you’ve completed 3 sets.
 Make sure you warm up and stretch before and be sure to stretch after too.

You should start seeing and feeling results in as little as two weeks if yo clean up your diet and go low carb and replace unhealthy snacks with Matcha Tea Green smoothies.  

 

Lunges For Sexy Legs and Round Butt

Sexy Legs and Round Butt Requires Training and Fat Burning Diet

Work up to 3 sets 3 days a week for 5 to 6 weeks. For faster results, increase the number of sets/times per week. Make sure you are also doing pure fat burning cardio 4-5 times per week too. Not only will you lose fat, tighten up your lower body, but you will be saving your life and increasing your mental health with the endorphins rush!

Proper Technique

Reminder: Be careful and make sure that your knee stays over your ankle and is not going over your toes. When pushing off with the front leg, push through the heel.
Walking Lunges are a great variation on the standard lunges. They give you a longer range of motion, plus they lengthen as well as strengthen the thigh muscles.

Lunges are classic and proven to tighten and tone your legs so that will have perfect traffic stopping and ladies gossiping thighs for your hot mini skirt.

New Years Question….

Tired and overweight-man-and-woman-48015482

Victoria,                                                                                                                                        I am so tired of carrying around all this extra body fat.  It is making me feel sluggish and unattractive.  I went to one of those strip mall weight loss programs and they told me it would take me longer because I’m older. I’m only 35 years old.  Is that true?  Is my metabolism too slow to lose weight and why do we gain weight as we age?                                                                Signed, Frustrated

Answer…This is a popular question I get from men and women all over the world. No culture or country is exempt.  It’s quite interesting to know that all over the world people are struggling with the same issue. It really shows that we are more alike than we realize.

The answer is no, you don’t have to look at age as a limitation or barrier to losing weight.

There are many master body builders and fitness competitors who are over 35 and look absolutely amazing.  They train regularly, eat properly, get good sleep and regularly set new fitness goals. They have learned how to master their biochemistry.

Check out Anne Pirson from Belgium.

Anne Pirson Belgium miss-figure-over35-pl-1_IMG_a9651

She’s Miss Figure over 35, she’s 39 years old. You don’t have to get this muscular. I just wanted you to see someone who is older than you that is lean, fit and has low body fat. Still not convinced that age doesn’t matter?

NOW.. Check out Ernestine Shepard. She is 75 years old. She started bodybuilding at 71!

Ernestine Shephard

So you see that it is possible to lose weight and get fit at any age.

Solid Life Long Program                                                                           You can begin by:

  1. Getting on a solid nutrition program that balances your body chemistry and
  2. Performing a consistent resistance-training program that increases your muscle mass 3-4 times per week.  Solid muscle increases your body’s basal metabolic rate and that makes your metabolism faster.
  3. Do some moderate intensity cardio four to five times per week or 30-60 minutes.  It will increase your oxygen uptake and help melt the excess fat off your body. This type of a complete program is the only way to permanently lose weight and stay healthy.

Here’s why you have to do a complete program and not just the diet in a box method.

Exercise Calorie Expenditure: Just exercising alone is not enough to get down to your perfect weight. Although you might think that physical exercise accounts for most of the calories you burn, it actually accounts for only about one third. In general, your calorie expenditure depends on three things:

1) Your Basal Metabolic Rate is determined by your lean body mass, the active part of your body. This accounts for about 60 percent of all calorie expenditure. Basal (or resting) metabolic rate is the amount of energy or calories your body consumes while at rest, in order to power the thousands of chemical reactions required to maintain health – such as, temperature, cell-repair, cardiovascular system and so on. Put simply, basal metabolic rate is an estimate of how many calories you would burn if you were to lie asleep for 24 hours, with measurement beginning 12 hours after your last meal to ensure that your digestive system was inactive and not burning calories digesting food. The more you increase your lean (active) body mass, the higher your basal metabolic rate. That is why you have to train properly, eat a good balanced diet and drink sufficient water. Your lean body mass is over 60 percent water.

Your Physical Activity. Typically this accounts for about 30 percent of calorie expenditure. You have to become more active every single day. You have to become a motion machine. Physical activity has to become your lifestyle. You want to return to that playful place you were at when you were a kid. You jumped, danced, ran, jumped rope, played sports, ran all over the house and you walked everywhere.  The more active you are, the more calories you burn and the more anti aging oxygen your body will process.

Dietary Thermogenesis. This is the calories you burn while digesting food. It accounts for about 10 percent of the total calories you burn. This is why you cannot skip meals. When you eat properly, you raise your metabolism.  When you skip meals, you reduce your metabolic rate. Starving is worse for you when you are trying to lose weight permanently.

To sum it all up, metabolism is the amount of energy or calories your body burns for maintenance.  It is the rate your body burns calories for all it’s bodily functions: breathing, sleeping, cleaning, working, and for internal functions such as digestion and respiration.

body fat mesurement Woman-Measuring-Body-Fat-48788477

Your body’s metabolism is affected by your body composition.  Your composition is determined by the amount of lean muscle mass you have versus the amount of fat.  Muscle uses more calories to maintain itself than fat.

After about age 30, the body gradually begins to lose its muscle mass from inactivity and hormonal imbalances.  If you eat the same and your activity level stays the same, you will gain weight.  You don’t have the same muscle mass you had in your younger years, so weight gain is the result.  For this reason, strength training is vital for losing weight and increasing the rate of your metabolism. As you gain healthy muscle, age is no longer the predominate factor preventing you from reaching your goal weight.

If your muscle mass verses fat ratio improves, your metabolism increases.  A biochemically-balanced fat burning diet and weight training in combination with aerobic activity will result in a body that has more muscle mass and less fat.  So, increasing healthy muscle mass is a vital key to permanent weight loss along with a healthy diet and regular cardio.

Metabolic Madness? You Need To Do This NOW!

21 Mar

Metabolic Madness – You Must Do This!

This week, I am going to answer an e-mail that explains the benefits of increasing muscle mass which will help you burn more calories.

The more calories you burn, the more fat you will be able to lose. This is why working out is so powerful in a good weight loss program. You can starve your body by restricting your calories to less that 1,000, but that will only slow down your metabolic system causing Metabolic Madness!

Your body will perceive it is going into a famine and will enter into a “self preservation” state to conserve itself. When you break the famine and increase your calories, your body suddenly begins to store extra calories to prepare for the next famine.You can only starve for so long before you lose it and begin to binge on your favorite foods. When it comes to stopping the cycle of Metabolic gain and lose yo-yo dieting Madness, you have to move it to lose it and weight training is one of the best ways to consistently increase your metabolism.

Here’s the question from Margaret, one of our newsletter subscribers.

Good Morning Victoria,  When I do my workouts, which should do toning or  cardio? Or does it matter which one I do. Everyone has opinions and suggestions, but they don’t have a fit body like yours, so I want your opinion. Thanks..Margaret

Hi Margaret,

Thank you for participating in creating your best body ever program and taking the time to write me. You asked a very good question. Here’s my answer.

Don’t Wait to Do Weights!

I went to a party this weekend and everyone looked fabulous. It was a fine display of the concept that when you like the way you look, you feel better about yourself.

Looking good is a matter of personal preference of course. As I observe people I observe how they carry themselves, their facial expressions, their tone of voice, their body language, how they stand, walk and if they move with grace and confidence.

Strong and Beautiful

The strongest looking individuals at this party had good posture and wonderful physiques that displayed various degrees of muscle definition. Even the hostess, who was six months pregnant, looking very beautiful and glowing with life, had toned upper arms, a sculpted back and amazing legs demonstrating the benefit of consistent resistance training.  Here is a photo taken at The Ritz Carlton Training Gym in South Beach, Florida USA. It was at a shoot prep training two weeks ago for a video game charachter. I wish I had permission to show you ALL the peeps that were training that day. When you look at this photo, consider that I was over 180 pounds and shaped like an apple! I had no waist, no lats and no shoulders. This is what weight training has done for my body.

Victoria Ritx Shoot photo

In the beginning of my training career I used heavy weights and even competed in body building contests. I won many contests and I loved the feel of lifting weights.

Unfortunately I built big legs of steel that were thicker than I wanted. Then one day I went to a seminar to hear a beautifully sculpted former body builder, Diana Dennis, and I was immediately sold on her ideas of high repetition training using light weights. Now she was a professional body builder several years ago and magazines loved photographing her because she would strike these beautiful artistic poses. This is an artistic piece taken by Photographer Tom Clark of Hollywood, California. Don’t send me any hater mail about how she is so big. YES, she was big!  She was a professional bodybuilder. Her job was to know how to build muscle. I would not ask a broke person how to make money. So I went to a professional to learn how to build muscle.  I am not advocating that you get big like this photo, I only wanted to demonstrate that she knew the art of muscle building! 🙂

Diana Dennis

I had been lifting at the gym and training my clients, but I had never done the high rep training.  I ran out the doors of the auditorium and went to a sporting good store and bought a set of hand weights that came on a small weight tree and that was the beginning of my new leaner, tighter, smaller body.

I was so excited by this new training philosophy that I created a workout using light weights for sculpting with motivating music and moves that increased the heart rate so that I could burn fat while I was reshaping my body. The result was a workout and a movement that has become a market mainstay, Vertical Training, the Art of Sculpting. One of the specialized Vertical Training programs I designed is the foundation for my Skinny Thighs Workout, in my “HOW DO I GET SKINNY THIGHS” KINDLE and Paperback book. Here is an explanation and benefits.

Resistance Training

weight workout

Resistance training increases muscle strength by overloading the muscles using a weight, such as a dumbbell or barbell. The muscle cells adapt to the extra workload by enlarging (hypertrophy) and recruiting greater numbers of nerve cells to aid contraction. Understanding the principles of muscle contraction can help you reach your fitness goals faster. Resistance training is one of the greatest anti-aging weapons available to you today.

The benefits of regular resistance training include:

  • Increased muscle strength, power, endurance and conditioning
  • Improved body shape and decreases cellulite
  • Increased bone density and strength to prevent osteoporosis
  • Reduced body fat by increasing muscle mass which is your body’s engine
  • Boosted metabolism (burning more calories when at rest) muscles are your engine  – Volkswagon verses a bus..
  • Lowered resting heart rate (a sign of fitness)
  • Reduce blood pressure (helps to reduce the risk of heart disease)
  • Improved balance and stability – more stable base
  • Enhanced performance of daily activities, walking up stairs, shopping, carrying kids, rock climbing, hiking, shoulder bag,
  • Reduced risk of development and improvement of medical conditions; diabetes, high blood pressure and arthritis.

You have to go to the radio show and here my explanation of each exercise and how they transform your body!

In conclusion, make sure you include resistance training in your program so that you can keep your metabolism up and maintain your youthful physique.

Start a lifting program 2-3 times a week.  Along with your cardio and stretching.

Demolish Butt Dimples  – Here’s our question for the week! Lot of Great tips for you!

Thank you for keeping the books rockin at Amazon.com. ALL are now available in Paperback!

Miss Victoria,

I want to thank you for your conviction to getting fit, healthy and having fun doing it.

I am having an “Ask Victoria” revival in my life. I have been dieting off and on for most of my adult life. I got your Quick Start Energy Program and lost fifteen solid pounds of fat that I have kept off for two years.

Then I started listening to all these accept your body image or your body image does not matter people…who by the way are all overweight, and stopped working on my body. They spoke to the lazy side of my personality.

I have been encouraged by them to save money, reach high, give more, help more, realize my potential in every aspect of living…except when it comes to my body I am supposed to just accept mediocrity and dimples!

Victoria, I am improving in every area of my life except my body. I’m BACK. I am ready to take my body to the next level. I have a Brazilian shaped body and I like my shape.

I have cellulite on my thighs and butt. Can you give me some suggestions on demolishing the dimples? I would like a home exercise routine that I could do in 15 to 20 minutes. I have a treadmill and I already use five times a week for my cardio. Can you give me some exercises to demolish these ugly dimples on my butt? ~ Alejandra

Alejandra,

Great job permanently losing fifteen pounds! That is fantastic. Your health and your body will benefit greatly for years to come. Keep following the eating plan and modifying it as your taste changes.

It’s so funny how many nutrition people hate the fact that some fruit can actually make you gain fat if consumed at the wrong time of day or if it is combined with simple carbs.

I love writing about “Booty Secret”

Here I am in Celebrity Central “South Beach MIami” where Brazilian Butts are a fashion accessory!

South Beach

Science Confirms Low Glycemic Eating Blasts Fat

Science is a powerful sales tool and combine that with trial and error testing for decades and you have a winning formula for having abounding energy, vitality and a great shape.

I don’t know what’s up with all those people in the media telling you to accept being unhealthy and overweight. I have not seen one men’s magazine telling men to accept being overweight, unhealthy and accept living without an erection.

I am so happy you had a wake up call and that you have joined the ranks of be the best in every area of your life and self!

It makes no sense to me that women would tell other women to settle for anything less than living life to the max and having the body they want! It’s their opinion and they are entitled to it. WHATEVER!

I never write my material or design programs or diets for people who are happy being overweight. I am only addressing people like you and my millions of viewers around the world who love the idea of being in great shape while honoring and valuing their body.

Cellulite Busting Tips

1. Anti-Cellulite CD

When it comes to cellulite, make sure you listen to my Anti-Cellulite CD several times. (It is included as part of the Quick Start Program) There are so many simple but totally powerful tips in it. I swear every time you hear any learning material, you will hear something new!

2. Stand UP!

Sitting on your behind for long periods of time makes the muscles spread wider and softer which leads to more cellulite forming. Be aware and conscious of your lifestyle every day. Once you are aware of something, you can change it and create a better and more effective habit.

3. Increase Circulation – Walk, move, dance and hop around. Do anything that increases circulation to the area you want to shape and tone.

4. Drink Up! – You already know that I am going to tell you to drink more water to help you flush out your system and keep your skin looking fabulous!

The exercises below are popular with female fitness competitors and they won’t change your curvy Brazilian figure.

There are fantastic exercises that many fitness competitors do to erase the awkward appearance of cellulite.

Here are your perfect exercises that’ll prove to be effective when you do them regularly, thereby eradicating the toxins that get flushed, underneath your beautiful Brazilian skin.

The more you follow a Good Healthy Glycemic method of eating and continue your cardio exercise, the faster you will get rid of that ugly “orange peel syndrome”.

To help you tighten your rear end and keep cellulite off your butt do this amazing toning and conditioning exercise.

Make sure you pay attention to the muscles you are working and feel them tighten so that you’ll literally see and feel changes right before your eyes.

Best Butt Exercise – Dimple Demolishing and Effective

To warm up and increase circulation after you have stretched,

Stairs/Steps: Place your one foot up on a step 6-8 inches high; gradually step up and down staying on one side. Then switch legs.

* 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions per leg for 3 sets.

If you don’t have a step, use your stairs or porch. You can do this several times per week.

Rear Leg Extension

Standing tall holding onto a chair, wall, bar or whatever you wish for balance and to stabilize your spine.

Extend your leg back while squeezing the buttocks.

2 sets of 10-30 repetitions for each leg or as many as you can do then repeat on other leg.  Starting with two sets is good. When you have the energy and strength, do more. Sets and reps are guidelines.  Your body is unique and may need more or less.

Check out the video demo!

Use Your Power!

Stay true to your desires and don’t ever let anyone else persuade you not to follow your core values. We have a tendency to want to please other people so much that we put our own life and ourselves last.

Your body and your health is your most precious tool. You can’t accomplish anything great if you are sick, unhealthy and spending all of your money on medical bills.  Get healthy and reclaim your energy so that you can live and enjoy every moment.

The world will never be the way we knew it yesterday. The news will always be negative. Turn it off and know that things are changing every day but so are you. train your body to be a strong and powerful machine so that you can live in the body you want without pain and suffering.

Use whatever motivational tool you can to get moving and get totally fit. If cellulite is the drive you need to get your a** moving and take control of your health and energy, so be it.

Do It Your Way

Don’t let anyone judge you or tell you that you shouldn’t put too much energy into how you look. People that say things like that are either unmotivated themselves or they just don’t get it. That’s their opinion. You don’t have to receive it or accept it.

I will never back down from the science and personal experience with eating a certain way that gives me a tight hard strong and energetic body. Neither should you.

There are millions of other programs and people to listen to. You have to be true to your body type and goals. Your support and the support of all reading this have been awesome and you are all very special to me. We need to stay together and pump each other up so that we can go forth in strength and power.

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.- Albert Einstein

I am living life on my own terms and will not be persuaded to become lazy and slothful in any part of my life. I am disciplined and diligent in all aspects of my life. No one lives in my skin but me and I have to live authentically to my beliefs.  So do you.

You have to take that kind of attitude when it comes to your health and vibrancy too.

I know you can take your body to the next level now. Now that you got your fire back, don’t let anyone else ever put out your flame!

What is The New Skinny? As you stroll though history you can see that each era had female figures that  were the envy of women and the preferred “hottie shape” of that time period.

In the renaissance period, round curvaceous women were admired for their shape.  A voluptuous hourglass was the desired shape.  Women even wore waist corsets under their dresses to make their waist narrow, accentuated their hips and that made their thighs look more pronounced.

When you look at the art of that period, you see how being round with an hourglass Shape was prominent.

Glam Hams, Sexy & Curvaceous

Move through time and you see that two generations ago Marilyn Monroe, actress, model and entertainer, the most famous sex symbol of the last century.  She most definitely had an hourglass figure. Her public measurements according to her seamstress were 35-23-35.  She was 5’5 120-140 pounds.  That is remarkable when you consider today’s average runway model is rail thin and has no muscle mass on her legs, arms or butt.

I Hate My Scale! Help For Your Weight Loss Plateau

How To Break a Plateau

It’s six weeks after american new year’s resolution and I am starting to get emails asking “How to Break My Weight Plateau”.  I have some ideas for you.   But first of all I want to thank all of you that made my “How Do I Get Abs” book launch on Amazon.com a global hit!  It was amazing, I made it to number 1! I even got a great screen shot of it for my Goals Accomplished wall.  I am getting so much positive feedback. It’s awesome.  I could not have done it without you!

I Hate My Scale! How To Break a Weight Loss Plateau

Check out this excerpt from a Special Science Report

Cutting Carbs Is More Effective Than Low-Fat Diet for Insulin-Resistant Women,Study Finds; Science Daily (June 21, 2010) — Obese women with insulin resistance lose more weight after three months on a lower-carbohydrate diet than on a traditional low-fat diet with the same number of calories, according to a new study.

Time for some new ideas.  If you are experiencing a stall or plateau in weight loss efforts, you are not alone. This occurs from time to time to almost all of us trying to get thinner. However, you first must make sure that you have actually reached a plateau point.

A plateau means that you have gone an extended period of time without losing weight or inches. It’s important to take your measurements before you start your weight loss plan, in addition to your weight. On some weeks it may not seem like you are not losing any weight at all on the scale. But a quick look at your measurements could prove otherwise.

On a higher protein diet you are replacing fat with muscle, which is denser and heavier. You might actually gain a little weight because you are building muscle. The result will be an increase on the scale, but a decrease in your inches. Your body will be smaller and leaner, but you may weigh the same.

Before you start your program, measure your chest, waist, hips, upper arms, thighs and calves. You never know where you may be losing inches, so it’s important to have these measurements to refer to.

It is normal to go through periods where you body is readjusting. Remember that you are reforming the composition of your body and this process will take some time. Check your measurements once a week, just like your weight, and you can track your overall progress.

What Is A Plateau?

There may be periods of 3 to 4 weeks where you have a plateau in weight loss, but a loss in inches. Or vice versa. Using both methods to track your fat loss is the best assurance for an accurate measure of your progress. These stall periods are not a reason to quit or to give up. They are biochemical parts of the weight loss process.

Plateaus may occur more frequently if you are 5 to 10 pounds away from being at your goal weight. By following a low-carb, higher-protein way of eating you have created a lot more muscle in your body. Your muscle-to-fat ratio is higher than ever before, so your body might be resisting losing anymore fat. It may be time to rethink your goal weight. Perhaps your body is trying to tell you something and its time to start maintaining your weight loss rather than trying to lose more.

What Causes Your Scale to Get Stuck?

There are some other possible causes of  plateaus on the road to weight loss. If you’ve gone four weeks with no change in weight or measurements and you are nowhere near your goal weight, you can try a few different methods to get yourself out of the rut. First, make sure your carbohydrate level is in check. If you are eating too many carbohydrate grams per day, your weight loss will stall. Look for hidden carbohydrates in your coffees, alcohol, packaged foods, snacks, dressings and sauces to make sure they aren’t the culprits in your plateau.

 Check your daily water intake. When you are dehydrated, your body will retain water and that can mimic a plateau. Water will also help flush ketones from your system and make more room for new fat burning ketones.

It may be time to eat more.

Under eating can also be a cause for weight loss plateaus. Make sure not to let yourself go hungry and eat smaller, more frequent meals. Remember, you are on a carbohydrate-restricted diet, not a calorie-restricted diet. Make sure to have some protein with every meal and snack. Never go more than 4 hours without eating something (except overnight of course). Also, eat freely from the acceptable foods. Don’t try to count calories or restrict your calorie intake. When your body gets too few calories, it goes into starvation mode and will hold onto fat cells. AAAHH!!

exercise

Pump It up!

Increasing your exercise level or adding more slower systemic fat burning cardio can help get you through a plateau as well. As your muscles get used to working out at a certain level, you’ll have to increase the duration or the intensity in order to keep challenging your body. Add a new exercise into the mix, or try increasing more reps into a light weight resistance training circuit.  You don’t need to go to a gym to do cardio. You can so it anyplace.

Trying one of these suggestions will most likely get your weight loss back on track. Remember that occasional stalls are normal, but they do not have to last.

See you on the step mill!
