I reached my first plateau and I saw on a YouTube vid that by eating more, I'll increase my metabolism and burn more fat, build more muscle.
Truth in that?

Yes very true! U can find a calorie chart on google too if u feel the need for one! It tells u how many calories ur body needs in a day and as long as u reach that goal ( not less or too much than what u need) if u are wanting to Lose weight then don't work out! If u want to be skinnier AND be stronger then u will want to work out but u will probably maintain the same weight! :) I hope I helped!

Eat like a bird. No sit down meals more nuts.greens than fruits and dont mix protein with carbs. keep with your cardio you should see a difference. Also a great i dea would be a digestive cleanse to help illiminate stubborn plateau. Hope this helps.

this is all my humble opinion so just food for thought I disagree with calorie counting. there are many nutritious snacks such as nuts and raw oils that contain lots of calories that help sustain energy as opposed to snacks that are low in calories filled with empty calories just for the sake of eating something that's low calorie. I definitely agree with you eating more raw and live foods. nothing to have the package and that would take you a long way. after all it's trial n error everybody is different let us know what you do and your...

When i reach plateaus, i always take a look at my food journal. Usually i'm eating too much sodium & not drinking enough water &/or too much starch & sugar. A lot of items have hidden sodium & sugars like my favorite condiment Sriracha - loaded with sodium. I STILL forget to check labels - very important to check. Also, i agree with cleanse!! I'll make a food swap, i'll swap out something salty for a fruit. I say go a little more "raw foods" when you hit a plateau. I still think you can cook veggies, but use salt free seasoners like Mrs. Dash.
 In a way you will be "eating more" because if you swap 2 slices of bread (avg 140cals) for say 2 portabello mushroom caps (avg 36cal): you can have 2 small apples (avg 60cals for two), and a fat free yogurt (the kind i get is 60cals) for dessert! This always seems to work for me! Kinda like getting 5 shirts for $150 instead of 2 for $140.  bonus: usually, the veggies feel you up more so you'll only want maybe one apple & yogurt or just one or the other. (Happens to me)
Also, adding another 10min (doesn't feel like much to me) of cardio in the day is a nice turbo boost. 
Good luck in your endeavors!

Guys!
So I made it a point to increase my caloric intake everyday and lost another 5 pounds. No idea how that happened! Best part is everyday I felt like I was stuffing myself silly.
Awesome!
