Your body weight is regulated to remain “set” at a certain point or range, but you can change this for the better. Here’s how.
There’s no denying the fact that people’s body weight tends to remain settled in certain ranges over long periods of time.
There’s also no denying that “dieting” simply doesn’t work for most people. Sure, they can lose weight, but many regain it all once they stop the diet.
And to add a cherry of hopelessness on top, we’re also often told that exercise kind of sucks for weight loss too.
What are we to do, then? Accept whatever body weight nature and our environment has given us? Is there really no effective way to achieve and maintain an ideal body weight for the long term?
Well, there’s a counterpoint to the above research: evidence that about 20% of overweight people successfully reduce their body weight by at least 10%, and then maintain their new weight for at least 1 year.
What’s going on here?
What’s going on is a result of people’s body weight set points, which are very real and can either work for or against you in your quest to get and stay lean.
In this episode, you’re going to learn why your body weight has “settled” to its current level, why it’s a pain in the ass to reduce your “default” weight, and how to actually do it.
