What is the secret to getting rid of those last stubborn pounds?
Keep in mind that for every pound you lose, your body needs 10 fewer calories to support your weight. So, if you've lost 15 lbs., you need to cut an additional 150 calories a day to keep losing. And if you've managed to drop those pounds without exercising, your metabolic rate has probably slowed down, making it even harder to lose. Add a little bit of cardio to your program to boost your metabolism. If you have been exercising, increase your cardio time by 10 minutes. That should help you to break that plateau.
