Plateaus are so discouraging! What causes a dieting plateau?

Answer: Everyone who goes on a "diet" will plateau! This is because all diets put people on a set calorie intake day after day. The body naturally becomes attuned to a very low energy intake and slows metabolism down.

This is why weight goes back on again after each diet attempt, plus interest.

Successful, maintainable weight management is not the result of "dieting". It can only be achieved by a varied and enjoyable food intake which fits into your own family lifestyle.
