Are you hitting a plateau in your weight-loss efforts? Eat more! You read me right. Sometimes we plateau because we need more to fuel for our burners. Muscles need proper nutrition to build and burn. This is not an excuse to choose poor nutrition. It is a chance to maximize your gains and effort. You only need to add about a fourth of one regular meal size to get the gains. Adding an extra low calorie snack can be the best way to boost your intake. It probably does not take much, but you can play with it and see what works for you. It really depends on how undernourished you might be. Not eating enough results in your body going into survival mode and slows metabolism, stores fat more readily, and signals Cortisol to be released. No body wants that.
