IMO Plateaus are more about your body settling into a rut. So the best way to get through them is to shake it up.
Swap diets if you can or scrutinise everything like you did at the beginning.
Change-up your exercise programme.
Anything and everything you can change do it!!!
You'll soon power through your barrier.
42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.
Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.
Onwards and Downwards! http://www.menu52.com/
