I've reached the dreaded plateau phase grrrr! Last Friday I weighed in at 158 lbs and this morning I weighed in at 158 again!
I tried to shock my system by fasting 24 hours two days in a row along with my normal daily 16 hour fast with virtually no results! Maybe I'm expecting too much too soon. I'm quite happy with my results so far as I've lost 22 lbs in 3 months!
I am a male, age 48, 5'10" 158 lbs with a goal of 150 lbs, although I realize that the goal is irrelevant as I plan on continuing this lifestyle for life! I'm following Marks fitness program to a tee while eating Primal at about 90%.
Am I not eating enough? Should I add to the fitness program? Should I just not worry about it and just enjoy my current success? I know this sounds silly as I know slow and steady wins the race but it gets exciting as you get close to your goal!

I always broke plateaus by eating more! Even if its only a few meals where you gorge yourself then resume your usual schedule

One week does not a plateau make.

Also agree. I 'plateaued' three weeks straight then dropped 4lb the following week. [I]Courage mon brave![/I]
LOL! Thanks for the advice! As for the "build some muscle", I've always had a slender build, but I plan on building muscle after my belly takes a hike for good! I didn't know how long a plateau could or should be and I appreciate the info!
You guys GROK!...er... ROCK!

I've never understood why people always go this route. Lifting heavy weights now and building muscle will help make your belly disappear. Why wait?
And yeah, what you describe is hardly a plateau.
