Weight loss matters…

When new information about topics that I have posted on this blog comes to my attention, I like to pass it on to my readers.

This is one of those times when new information makes me question the healthiness of rapid weight loss such as the “Biggest Loser”.

That being said, I will leave you to form your own opinions about such weight loss techniques.

Talk about setting people up for long term struggle.

The term metabolic adaptation is given to the phenomenon whereby when a person loses a certain percentage of weight, their metabolisms slow by greater amounts. This process may be accelerated with more rapid weight loss as a consequence of the rapidly losing body metabolizing calorie burning muscle along with fat to make up for its massive energy deficit.
