Laurence is joined by, Naturopath, Researcher and host of the Metagenics Clinical Podcast, Nathan Rose to discuss all things weight loss.
What most people don’t understand when trying to lose weight, is that our bodies have a weight set point that they feel comfortable at. Through poor diet, this weight set point is shifting upwards causing us to become overweight. When we lose weight, if we do it incorrectly, our bodies can resist this by defending the weight set point and will want to put the weight back on. Laurence and Nathan discuss what this weight set point means, why we have a weight set point and why it’s linked to most diets failing. The goal for long term weight loss is to focus on dropping your weight set point through ‘four diet heroes’. As Laurence and Nathan discuss, these diet heroes allow your body to adjust and set a new weight set point.
