Take a week off the diet

Although this goes against everything most dieters have been conditioned to believe, sometimes the best strategy to break a fat loss plateau is to take a week off of the diet and eat at maintenance calories. Some individuals choose to remain ketogenic, simply increasing their caloric intake, while others prefer to return to a carbohydrate based diet.

The body ultimately adapts to anything including diet and calorie levels. Taking a week off of the diet can help raise metabolic rate as well as rebuild any muscle which may have been lost. However, fat gain during a one week break is generally minimal as long as individuals do not overdo caloric intake. Keep in mind that adding carbohydrates back into the diet can cause a rapid but transient weight regain for individuals on an SKD or TKD.
