IMPORTANT TIPS TO REMEMBER
Here are a few critical tips to remember as you begin changing your set point. In the last post, I shared with you 7 important steps to take in order to change this Set Point (the weight at which your body wants to weigh.)
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 another 10%.
Maybe it seems slows, but which do you prefer: quick loss that is regained or slower loss that becomes a strong steady lower set point? You will be gradually changing your daily habits. They will turn into autopilot. This is where the miracle occurs. With God’s strength and grace, the new good habits now become easy.
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 will create a compensatory reaction to both of these actions in order to maintain its fuel reserves. If pushed to extremes, your metabolism pushes back.
Think about your metabolism like the tires on your car:The more miles you put on it, the less responsive it becomes. Quote from Jill Coleman ,Director of Instructor Training for Metabolic Effect
