There might be a physiological reason for this. There is a condition common in people who are overweight called insulin resistance. This is a condition that makes it difficult for the body to convert the foods you eat to energy.

The Jump Start Diet Plan will prime your body for weight loss success making even the most weight-loss resistant body a better fat burning machine. Follow these recommendations for the next 2 weeks and you will jump start your diet making your body more efficient at weight loss.

1. Modify Your Carbohydrate Intake
Note that I did not say eliminate carbohydrates from your diet. Carbohydrates are good for you and an important energy source. However, if you have a very carb heavy diet your body might have become less efficient at handling them and therefore more easily converts them to fat. To reverse this you will want to finish eating carbohydrates by lunchtime for the next two weeks. Any food you eat after lunch should be a protein or vegetable choice.

2. Avoid Refined Carbohydrates and Alcohol
Your body needs a rest from these quickly processed food items. Refined carbohydrates include candy, soda, pretzels, chips, ice cream and any other type of overly processed food.

3. Eat 3 Meals and 2 Snacks Each Day
You will want to eat small portioned meals throughout the day. Avoid skipping a meal and then making up for it with a big meal.

4. Drink 8 Glasses of Water Each Day
Water is needed for your body to convert fat to energy so make sure that you are getting plenty throughout your day.

5. Stop Eating 3 Hours Before Bed
You will maximize your weight loss results by not eating 3 hours before bedtime. Your metabolism naturally slows at night making calories eaten less likely to be burned as fuel and more likely to be stored as fat.

This 14-day diet plan will challenge you to change your eating habits but with the right mindset you will break through your weight loss barrier and make your body much more efficient at weight loss.
