Changing Your Set Point (Part II)


In the last post, I shared with you 7 important steps to take in order to change your Set Point (the weight at which your body wants to weigh.) Here are a few very critical things to remember:


Lose no More than 10% of Your Body Weight in a Six Month Time Frame

Scientific evidence supports losing no more than 10% of your body weight at a time. That seems to be the amount of weight you can lose before your body starts to fight back. Your body’s set point and all of it multitude of regulatory hormones dictate the effectiveness of this 10% loss. Some can lose more than 10% at a time, but only a very precious few can maintain that loss. Maintain this new lower weight for 6 months and then you can repeat the cycle and thus reset your set point again.


New Forever Lifestyle Habits Must be Taken to Autopilot

Resetting your set point requires new forever lifestyle habits that you will take to autopilot. They will become second nature to you.


Avoid any Crash Diet or Insane Amount of Exercise

Increasing your exercise to insane amounts will not work long-term. Crash dieting will not work. Your metabolism with create a compensatory reaction to both of these actions in order to maintain its fuel reserves. If pushed to extremes, your metabolism pushes back. Research from Harvard Medical School


Think about your metabolism like the tires on your car:

           The more miles you put on it, the less responsive it becomes.
