The Body’s Response To Unconscious Reset Metabolism

By Robert Nogueira

Healthy diet, physical work outs and good selection of food is the perfect way to lose your bulk. Eating less food to reduce calorie intake technically might work, however practically, it results in more damage than good. That’s why professionally unguided diet plans usually end in failures. In the new diet plan the body continues to gain weight and not lose it. The key to weight control is the knowledge of reset metabolism. So how does it affect your weight gain or loss? Most people are ignorant of what happens when they try losing weight with less food.

A diet that does not work

Fat is what the body relies on for long term survival. In ancient time the cave man needed fat to survive in periods of no-food. No food for you causes the body to think it needs more fat in preparation for the ‘famine.’ The way the body fights back is to slowly use fats and reduce burning of calories so that it survives in the ‘famine mode.’ This is called the reset metabolism. The way the body works during reset metabolism is to protect itself in the ‘starving state’ by slowly burning calories and collecting more fat for future use which results in you gaining more weight.

So in the little occasions when you decide to take in more food out of cravings, the body will quickly hold on to the fat it finds in there, so that it has more energy stored for the starvation that is continuing. Reset metabolism starts due to the conservation of calories process. So, hoping that the low calorie will help you lose further weight, you end up cutting the intake further and stay on that level. You think that less food plan will help you achieve a body with less weight and in better shape. However, unknown to you, your body reset the metabolism rate and the new mode slowed down its calorie burning rate, so that as much energy possible is stored (in the form of fat). One thing will surely happen when you decide to get back to normal food – weight gain!

Less food ending up in more weight

Your decision to eat less food in a certain period made you gain weight. Your pounds increased even if you were already at the point of eating much less than the previous less food that you had. This is because your body reset your metabolism to a slower pace in fear of starvation. Soon, you will find yourself eating much less than the minimum amount of nourishment that your body needs to function or suffer the consequence of gaining more weight.

Best weight control

You might want to know a better way to control your weight. The answer is to keep the metabolism rate high by having regular workouts and other physical activities that will burn calories. The body doesn’t enter into starvation mode when you do natural physical activities like sweating. A new lifestyle is also a great option. Healthy diet along with exercise is a great way of controlling weight. A food habit of some fish, less meat, more vegetables with rice, along with physical activities like biking, gym workouts, and such are the best way to see yourself turn fitter and have your weight in control. The body doesn’t go into unnecessary starvation mode here.
