So you’ve been hovering around the same weight for a while… How do you lose the last 5–10 lbs you’ve been trying to shed for as long as you can remember?
Tip #1: Switch up your workout routine.
Make a conscious effort to push yourself if you notice your workout is too easy.
Try something new at the gym (supersets, bodyweight workouts, circuit training) or even try a new gym altogether!
Tip #2: Try new foods.
Eat new healthy food items you haven’t tried yet. Switch up your snacks, try a new veggie or new healthy recipe each week. Fuelling yourself in a new way might help spark the change you’ve been looking for!
Tip #3: Cut down on hidden natural sugars.
Unfortunately there is such a thing as eating too much fruit and dairy… Aim to eat a maximum of 2 servings of fresh fruit and 2 servings of dairy per day. Swap that extra serving of fruit with a veggie and a protein (veggies and hummus, or celery and peanut butter).
Tip #4: Take a break.Take a few rest days — even a rest week! Get back into your routine when you’ve recharged, have more energy and feel motivated again.
Tip #5: Try a new tool.Download a HIIT timer or buy yourself a device that will motivate you and get you out of your comfort zone.
