Q: I have been losing weight for a few months and the past few weeks my weight has plateaued. What can I do to kick-start my metabolism again?

A: Lots of people are currently trying to lose weight and it’s great that you have gotten started and have already lost weight. Generally what happens here is that people are sticking to the same exercise and food plan. As you lose weight your body will need less calories – unless you build up muscle mass then your body might need more. You should also change your exercise plan at least every six weeks as your muscles adapt to the exercises.
