Losing weight is one of the most common goals for people aiming to take up a new exercise commitment. But one very common reason people fail is because they don't know what types of exercise to do to achieve this goal. It should go without saying that exercise alone is unlikely to lead to any significant weight loss - there must also be a focus on nutrition.

A weight-loss plateau occurs when you stop losing weight despite maintaining the consistent exercise regimen and diet that was helping you shed weight earlier. It may occur due to several factors, such as slower metabolism due to rapid weight loss and failure to stick to your diet. It may also be the body’s adaptation mechanism to prevent further weight loss.

Many people who are trying to lose weight find that in the first few weeks, the pounds simply fall away and it feels easy. Then you hit the dreaded ‘plateau’. This is where that initial weight loss begins to slow and eventually reaches the point of stasis, where you’re no longer losing weight but just treading water and maintaining. That’s when the gym no longer feels like enough.

Metabolism is the rate at which the body breaks down calories to produce energy. Various factors such as gender, age, muscle mass, body fat, genetics, and activity level determine a person’s average metabolism. Having a higher metabolism translates to burning more calories, meaning you can lose weight and keep it off more easily.

If you are focusing on a low-carb diet, you have probably been told to count your macros. Your macro intake can affect your fitness and weight loss goals, even impacting your metabolic rate and energy consumption. It can be challenging to find the right balance as it varies from one person to another.

Absolutely whether it be African, Indian, South America or Chinese, I love it!
