I've been stuck at the same weight for a few months, changed my exercise routine and lowered my calories. I'm considering taking a caffeine supplement of some kind. Hey, don't judge...Jillian Michaels stood by it on The Biggest Loser on Tuesday. Does anyone have any opinions or suggestions on the matter?

I took a peek at your food calendar. Wow! You need to eat more not less. Try pushing your calories up by a hundred or two from where they were before you dropped them.

Too much of a calorie deficit is stressful on your body and a stressed body does not want to lose weight.

You stay busy. Keep your metabolism engaged by giving it enough energy to be comfortable letting go of some weight.

And, caffeine is fine by me Smile

I agree you need to eat more. When I get stuck, I change not the number of calories, but the type of food. I was heavy in healthy fat and protein for 2 months and very low carbs. This past week, I changed it to a lot more carbs but in the form of veggies and fruit and not as much protein and fats. I started losing weight again. Eat nuts, avocados, salmon, evoo.

When I go static I shock me system with a week off dieting. Then return straight back to the strict diet plan.

Dr Oz reconmends:

Green coffee bean & Raspberry keytones - Warmart stocks a combo one for less than $10
Sage tea with breakfast - to kickstart metabolism
ALA with lunch (alpha lipic acid) - natural anti inflammatory and fat burner
Fiber with dinner - Leaving you full overnight and aiding with healthy food digestion

Course, I dont trust DrOz much, seems like hes into endorsing and selling products more than anything now.

heh. I pretty much agree there. Most of his advise is just product selling from the few shows I did catch.

I do think there is something to the thought of maybe not so much going off the diet, but changing our ratios of fat/protein/carbs. The body gets used to something and then it becomes the norm.
