Stop focusing on just losing weight. Make your focus on healthy choices. Everyone tries to lose weight fast. The problem with this is that you gain it back fast. Accept that you can't eat like you are 20 any more. Cut back on portions but enjoy what you eat. It's ok to eat everything in moderation.
I lost 40lbs but it took me 6 years. My biggest secret was making realistic changes. If you take 2 sugars in your coffee, switch to 1. Now I drink herbal tea with honey. It takes time and realistic do-able changes. Rome wasn't built in a day!
I was stuck at the same weight for 4 months while remaining pretty consistent with my plan. I finally consulted a nutritionist at my fitness center. She measured my metabolism and gave me a plan to lose weight fast or faster. I chose fast and have begun to shed pounds again. Her diagnosis: fewer fat calories as a percentage of daily calories, and a total reduction of 100 calories/day overall.
I have also consulted a personal fitness trainer from time to time to tweak my exercise routine - to isolate certain muscle groups, for instance. There are great professionals out there to help us. Use them to get past that plateau!
Chicken has essential nutrients and vitamins, along with protein which assists overweight and obese people in losing weight fast. Chicken Soup has an anti-inflammatory effect. Also try chicken stuffed w/feta and spinach, I like to make a bunch, eat some hot and after it chills makes slices to eat cold. Dont eat breaded or fast food chicken, its all too fatty.
