Is Your Metabolism Broken?

What if I told you that this entire concept of metabolic damage is ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ป and preys on the desperation of dieters who hit a wall in their efforts? Instead of people helping you understand the true reason for your plateau, they want you to believe they have the ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ and it is tied to your โ€˜๐˜ฃ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏโ€™ metabolism. Although it is great for their business, it isnโ€™t you who is the problem โ€” it is those whom perpetuate false ideas so you keep trekking the dead end that youโ€™re on. โฃ

What most people think of metabolic damage is actually ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜€, where the body actively down-regulates processes that arenโ€™t essential for life in an attempt to slow the weight loss and stall the perceived starvation. ๐˜Œ๐˜น๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ค๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ด๐˜บ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ด, ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜บ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ด, ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฎ๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ง๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ. โฃ

But why is it that when people start to eat like normal after dieting they gain weight? โฃ

โฃ

Because they have a ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜จ๐˜บ ๐˜ฆ๐˜น๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ after dieting by virtue of weighing less! If you lose a bunch of weight, that means less energy needed to keep you alive and less energy required to move your now lighter body around. Itโ€™s not damage, itโ€™s being lighter.โฃ

โฃ

In Ancel Keysโ€™ classic Minnesota Starvation Experiment, normal-weight men lost 25% of their body weight over a 6-month dieting period. Their metabolic rate dropped by 40%, but 25% was due to weighing less and only 15% was from adaptive thermogenesis. ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ต๐˜ ๐—น๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜€.โฃ

These ideas can be hard for small women to wrap their head around given the already really low resting metabolic rate. If you have an adaptive down-regulation on an already low daily burn, then it may very well feel like you are starving to achieve further weight loss. ๐˜–๐˜ง ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ต ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฏ. That will let you eat more food while maintaining a deficit.โฃ

Finally, you donโ€™t need to reverse diet and slowly increase your calories back to normal. All that does is prolong the diet. Just eat at your new maintenance calories again, which will probably be lower than before you started dieting because, again, you weight less than you did before!
