How Can You Get Off A Weight Loss Plateau at 50, 60 or 70?


It happens to the best. There are several things you can do to make a change, which is what your body is seeking, in order to move again. Sticking with a weight loss and not inching up is a good thing.

Keep in mind a few things:

  • it’s not weight you want off – it’s fat – so never exchange the scale for poor eating choices
  • it takes adequate protein and reduced sugar in your diet – sugar that hides in EVERYTHING
  • calories don’t control your weight, your hormones do – so eat to tame your hormones
  • what you learned about weight loss at 20 or 40 is not what works – it never did- you just had time and metabolism on your side if you were one of the lucky ones – or were too busy to notice or do something about it
  • you can still make a change, weight is not inevitable as you age so don’t allow someone to say “for your age” you’re doing well
  • old habits die hard- give yourself some time to adapt but do start adapting and realizing when you fall back on old ideas

Then watch this video and see the tips below included:

Plateau busters for weights:

1. change the sequence

2. change the timing of the lift, the hold, the lower

3. increase the weight (if safe to do so)

Plateau busters for cardio:

1. intervals

2. longer and slower one day

3. if you have three cardio sessions a week they should each be different durations and intensity (more days a week – some will repeat)

Plateau busters for diet:

1. make sure you have adequate protein (older adults need 25-30grams to help keep lean and lose fat – that’s per meal)

2. make sure you have adequate calories – too few will slow metabolism down, as will losing muscle mass, almost guaranteeing weight gain – and we don’t want that!

3. before and after exercise time protein snacks so you help boost recovery
