A2These happen to most of the people who are very mad in reducing their weight. There are several reasons why your weight can hit a plateau, including: Losing weight too quickly. Losing muscle. Reaching your body's particular set point -- the weight and metabolic rate your body is genetically programmed to be. Decreasing your physical activity and/or increasing your caloric intake. Other health factors including thyroid or adrenal gland problems; medications like antidepressants; quitting smoking; menopause; and pregnancy. Even with any of the above factors, the bottom line to losing weight is eating fewer calories than you burn. Studies show that people almost always underestimate how many calories they're eating. So if you're struggling with weight loss, you're still exercising and you've ruled out any of the above reasons for weight plateaus. Look at your calorie intake or change your fitness routine.
