Have you ever worked really hard on a diet to lose wight, only to gain it back after the diet has ended?
That’s because of your body’s Weight Set Point.
Weight Set Point
This is the weight range your body fights to maintain. If your go below this point, your brain sends signals for you to eat more.
So all of a sudden that sweet treat you may not have been that interested in, looks amazing. Your body will also think that its in starvation and your brain will send signals for you to hold onto that body fat.
The Set Point is raised by a variety of factors.
Lack of exercise
Stress / anxiety
Poor gut health
Sugary foods combined with saturated fat.
Our Weight Set Point is also affected by the SAD Diet (Standard Australian Diet), in which there are more convenient processed foods available.
Lowering your Set Point is the key to loosing weight and keeping it off.
