× You've made the appropriate changes to your diet, started a fitness routine, celebrated the first few pounds falling off, but then, suddenly, the scale stops moving. Sound familiar? When the scale refuses to budge, it can be easy to get discouraged and throw in the towel. But it is important to stay the course, no matter what the scale says. Throughout the next 30 days, we will work to bust through that plateau and discover the healthy individual inside!

Meal Planning Matters

People who stick to a regular meal schedule consume about 80 fewer calories than people who eat haphazardly and are more likely to have more healthful diets. In order to get the most of your eating schedule, it's important to eat a balanced breakfast within two hours of waking, never go longer than three to four hours between eating and aim for one to three snacks daily. To get your eating on the right track, spend some time today laying out a meal plan for the week, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Then, stick with it for the rest of the week!
