Kick start your metabolism with a short morning workout

Break through a plateau by kick starting your metabolism in the morning with a short workout. After a frustrating plateau, I started riding the stationary bike in the morning for 15 mins, in addition to my regular workouts. Within days my weight started going down again. Plus, a 100 kcal workout every morning adds up to an extra full days workout by the end of the week.

Reduce your sodium intake

Track and reduce your sodium to 1500. Add an extra cup or two of water. Try this for a week. Too much sodium in your diet could be making you retain.

water

Drink your water don't sip on it all day and THINK you are getting in enough. Also you may need to get in more than 64 oz a day to lose. I have to drink 120oz or more in a day to lose. It gets easy with time. I use to gag on it but now I don't mind so much.
Your body needs the water to flush out the fat cells and to function right. Did you know that you breath out over a cup of water a day.

Reset Your Calorie Goals

If you have lost weight (especially a significant amount) consider reassessing your goals(on the sparkpeople start page) and see if you need to have your calorie ranges adjusted. Even if you just open the weight goals and let it reset your calorie ranges based on your current weight. As people loose weight then then require less calories.

More, not less

I've broken more plateaus more quickly by eating more rather than less. Borne of discouragement - "If this isn't working, I quit!" - I've found that if I eat a little more over the week, even treat myself a time or two, and that jiggles my metabolism back into losing. Works every time!
