it does tend to slow from that point.

1. track your food - cant work the problem without data

2. hydrate - get that Water in

3. oddly enough make sure your eating enough. If after tracking you find yourself below 1000 calories you should try to bump up a few hundred.

4. Protein - hit your protein target. if you are low you will lose muscle mass and that will decrease your metabolism.

5. No added sugar - watch those packages. 80% of packaged food has added sugar

6. cut out all simple carbs - that's just another form of sugar

7. complex carbs from your veggies

8. Zero fruit if you are stalled.

9. if you are not doing so already then add weights to your workout routine to build muscle mass and increase metabolism.

good luck and stay positive. A negative outlook always has a negative outcome.

Everything Allwet said. It's either lower your intake, or add some activity.

I drink nothing but Water & Protein. Are you drinking liquid calories?

I had the same stall too. Up and down 1-2 lbs, but hovering the same average for about 2 months now. Went through a bunch of stressful time with quitting one job, starting a new one, packing up and moving across state lines. The packing and moving dropped me about 6lbs over a couple weeks and stalled since. I am more active than ever now - swim every day with my kid and go on walks. I am eating about the same, still Proteins first. Semi frustrated, but haven't reached a panic or concern stage yet. Just trying to figure out what I feel actually.
