Routine change: Automation refers to making things "automatic" in your weight loss routine. This would include "go to" meals that you have established to be within your caloric intake value. It also includes things like scheduling of exercise so that it becomes routine. Adjustment is the process of accepting change. The more routine (automatic) you make exercise and meals the better the chances of success.

Is it explained?: The first question you need to answer: is the weight loss explainable? If not, then you may need an evaluation to find a reason that you are losing weight. Certain medical conditions will cause weight loss and early detection can help significantly. If you are healthy - eating well and exercising will help you build muscle mass that can be good healthy weight to add.

Lose weight: Vitamin e has also been shown to help. You do have a risk of gall stones with rapid weight loss. Ironically patients who had some fat when they dieted as opposed to no fat, developed fewer gall stones.
