There was another article in the paper about how your weight-loss can plateau after a while, in part because your metabolism slows to compensate for the reduced number of calories you’re eating.
The article recommended, among other things, kicking the exercise into higher gear; adding 15 or 30 minutes more to your routine.
15-30 minutes more? Who are they kidding?
I say, sneak the increase in. Start your weight-loss regimen with minimal exercise instead of a full-blown workout, then increase it gradually. So as your metabolism slows from decreased calories, maybe you can gradually increase your exercise to compensate for that without having to spend an hour or more a day doing it. Sort of trick your metabolism into thinking you're really going all out.
If anybody tries it, let me know how it goes.
