From coaching a lot of people with all sorts of health conditions or weight loss goals, I know about the dreaded ‘plateau.’ I know the frustration that comes with putting so much effort into changing one’s lifestyle, diet and habits and suddenly seeing the results just suddenly stop. It is terribly frustrating and I feel for everyone that encounters this, but from working with people who encounter this ‘plateau’, I’ve also seen them move through the ‘plateau’, reach their goals and get to the other side.
Diet and lifestyle are so important– but it’s not everything. There is an emotional and mental component to health and wellness as well, that is just as important. For many, that is the missing link and once they work through certain issues in their life they simultaneously work passed the plateau as well.
