What to do when your weight loss hits a plateau

So you've been exercising and eating healthy but the weight has stopped coming off. What to do? Chances are you've hit a weight loss plateau.

Plateaus are a common element in any weight loss journey because as your body weight changes, your body adapts. Initially, you may have found the weight loss to be significant. That's likely because you're burning lots of calories just going about your day-to-day activities. But now, since some of that excess weight has been lost, it takes less energy to move your body and so you burn fewer calories.

High-fat, high-carbohydrate diets affect your brain, not just your physical appearance

Much research has pointed to how an unhealthy diet correlates to obesity, but has not explored how diet can bring about neurological changes in the brain. A recent Yale study has discovered that high-fat diets contribute to irregularities in the hypothalamus region of the brain, which regulates body weight homeostasis and metabolism.

Led by Sabrina Diano, the Richard Sackler Family Professor of Cellular & Molecular Physiology and professor of neuroscience and comparative medicine, the study evaluated how the consumption of a high-fat diet—specifically diets that include high amounts of fats and carbohydrates—stimulates hypothalamic inflammation, a physiological response to obesity and malnutrition.
