    Sometimes it 's a matter of resubmitting your initial weight profile. With increased weight loss, we need fewer calories. Have you recalculated your calorie intake based on current weight recently or is it still calculating based on a weight a bit heavier than where you are at now?

    Two that usually kick start me is to change the time of exercise and shifting around how much I eat when.

    Another more off-the-wall idea is to take a day and eat at 125% of max calories and then take a day of 80% of minimum calories and then go back to in range. It shakes the body up.

    Re-evaluate your fitness and nutrition goals. Are you eating enough calories to compensate for your workouts? Or, is your calorie amount set according to fitness goals set much higher than you are actually doing? That is the first place I would start. If you are exercising way more or way less than what was entered into your goals you may not be eating enough, which slows your metabolism. Or, you are taking in a bit more calories than you are burning.

    The other thing that I find helpful is to increase the amount of water I am drinking. Green Tea works great too.

    One last thing you might want to re-evaluate is your workout routine. How long have you been doing it? Sometimes, switching things up helps. Adding intervals is a good way to push things up a notch.

    Good luck!
