Default Here's what I've heard about breaking a plateau

Here's what I've heard about breaking a plateau, but I've not tried it myself:

- gradually increase your calorie intake slightly, while closely watching your weight. When you've added 500 cal/day OR gained 3lbs (whichever comes first), hold that calorie level for a few weeks. You are looking for a higher calorie count that let's you stabilize at your current weight.

- after a few weeks at this higher calorie count, go back to the lower count you've used for weight loss and you should see the weight start to fall again.
