Re: stuck scales
You might be eating too little, causing your metabolism to slow down to try to conserve energy under starvation conditions. Also, you may want to spread your intake out throughout the day instead of concentrating most of it in one meal a day.
Another common situation for beginners is gaining muscle through exercise, offsetting the fat loss when looking solely at the scale. However, muscle gain is healthy, and if your waistline is getting smaller, then you are still losing fat. Simultaneous fat loss and muscle gain does get less likely and more difficult as you become more physically fit.
