A 35-year-old male asked:
What can be the causes of weight loss plateau ?

Normal: Body in general does NOT want to lose weight. When we reach plateau, body defense mechanisms against weight loss are kicking in. Time then to change the work out in terms of type, intensity and make adjustments in diet. Discuss issues with nutritionist and certified athletic trainer to get you back on track. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R
