Eight Ways to Pick Up the Pace of Weight Loss by Brant Secunda and Mark Allen Based on their bestseller, "Fit Soul, Fit Body" According to the Mayo Clinic, after some initial weight loss, most of us will hit a plateau unless we change a few behaviors--for instance, by eating less and exercising more.
