Hi SravanthiR1088 ,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community. I

t's normal to plateau right aroud the last 3-5 pounds or your goal weight. Here are some suggestions on what you can try to shed those last few pesky pounds.

  • Eat clean
  • Increase the intensity of your workouts
  • Build up your strength
  • Decrease your portion size
  • Get 8 or more hours of sleep
  • Drink more protein shakes (meal replacement shakes)


Be well,
