is a plateau really? Well according to DANDR(Dr. Atkins' New Diet
Revolution), a plateau must meet the following criteria: "1) You have
experienced no weight loss or loss of inches for at least 4 weeks.
(Increased muscle mass will deceive the scale because muscle weighs more
than fat--- but inches will still continue to disappear.)-2) You have
not started a new medication, such as hormone therapy, altered your
exercise regimen or made any other significant lifestyle change.-3) You
have examined your physical state carefully and are able to conclude
that you have no symptoms indicative of a diet-related disorder or a
thyroid problem,-4) You can take a close look at your eating habits and
honestly say you've adhered to the same healthy, controlled carbohydrate
eating plan that has brought you success up to now." (direct quote from
DANDR, 2002 edition, pages 182-183)
So who here has really hit a plateau and what have you done to break through it?
