When you’re trying to get into shape, the question isn't whether or not you'll hit a plateau, it's when. Plateaus are as inevitable as rainy days and Mondays—and just about as welcome.  Before you throw in your workout towel, first know you aren’t alone.  A plateau simply means you have reached a state of equilibrium: the calories you’re consuming and the calories you’re burning are balanced. Balance is a good thing; it’s your body’s way of announcing that you’ve succeeded. But if your weight loss has come to a screeching hault, we advise you to perhaps add one thing, change one thing and stop one thing to break free from your plateau and see the results.
