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. This is because our metabolism--the process of burning calories for energy--slows as we lose muscle. We burn fewer calories than we did at our heavier weight even doing the same activities. Our weight-loss efforts result in a new equilibrium with our now-slower metabolism.

Here are eight changes you can make to your routine that will help you pick up the pace of weight loss so you can reach your long-term goal more quickly.
