One of the keys to successful, sustainable weight loss is understanding your metabolism, especially what happens to the metabolism when you diet. When it comes to metabolism, there are several “Laws” and many “Rules.” Our goal is to teach these to you over the course of time so that you can become a metabolic expert.
The Laws of Metabolism
When we say “Laws,” these are not real laws, of course, but we call them laws because of the amount of research that supports their existence and the clinical reality of their impact.
These Laws of Metabolism govern much of the way the metabolism functions and responds to diet, exercise, and lifestyle. While there is still much more we don’t know about metabolism compared to what we do know, these laws represent some of the most important things research has proven and now understands about metabolic function.
And, of course, like all things in an uncertain field, these will continue to be debated and refined in favor of better information.
Understanding the laws has direct consequences for your success with diet, exercise, weight loss, and healthy living.
The Law of Metabolic Compensation
In this episode, we talk about the Law of Metabolic Compensation. Trust us; it sounds more complicated than it is.
We break down the two components of metabolic compensation so you can understand what happens to your body and your metabolism when you choose to diet or restrict calories.
We discuss the right way to create a healthy calorie deficit and the role of exercise in metabolic compensation and weight loss.
Then, Chris shares a tangible tip you can use to benefit your metabolism today!
