Control your body set weight, you will have long term weight loss.

Control your body set weight you will have long term weight loss.

Body set weight

The best evidence for this is that when people go on a diet and voluntarily eat less food, most are able to lose at least some weight. However, throughout time, as attention to maintaining the lost weight decreases, body weight creeps back up, generally to about the same level as occurred before the dieting began. This discouraging outcome may occur several times for some individuals throughout their lifetime as they keep attempting to lose weight; i.e., they try one or another diet that is popular at the time, lose some weight, and then regain it throughout a period of weeks or months.

If body fat tissue is removed by means other than dieting, for example when someone undergoes lipectomy or liposuction to reduce body fat, the typical result is that while body weight is initially lowered, the person increases the amount of food eaten, allowing body fat to return to its former, pre-operation level.

The factors influencing body weight are symmetrical, working in both directions. That is, when weight-stable individuals are paid to eat more food and gain weight, they are able to do it; but throughout time, the process becomes harder and harder and they typically fail at some point and fall back to the lower weight they were carrying before the period of overeating occurred, and they accomplish this by eating less food than normal.

All of these findings imply that the brain areas that control food intake and energy usage are able to monitor how much fat is present in the body, and to respond to changes in body fat by making offsetting changes in food intake. In this regard, the control of body weight and food intake is somewhat like the system that keeps your house at the appropriate temperature. You determine the set point for the room temperature you want to experience by adjusting the thermostat. When room temperature decreases below that set point, the furnace turns on and room temperature is increased. If the room temperature rises above the set point, the furnace shuts off; and in some home-temperature systems an air conditioner might come on. Unless there is a major problem (such as a furnace breakdown or a door left open), this kind of regulatory system maintains the temperature inside your house at near the set point most of the time.

Body weight regulation (or control) appears to be similar to set point, relying upon an internal body fat thermostat that is sensitive to total body fat and has the ability to influence a range of responses to increase (eating more food, reducing metabolic rate) or decrease total body fat (eating less food, increasing metabolic rate). While the nature of the body fat thermostat is not completely understood, it relies in part upon hormones that are released into the blood in proportion to body fat and that enter the brain in areas including the hypothalamus where they influence specific brain centers controlling food intake.

If a person’s weight starts creeping up, the body secretes more leptin, and these in turn act on the brain to reduce food intake; similarly, when weight is reduced by dieting or other means, the reduced hormone levels signal the brain to increase appetite. Because of these processes, it is difficult for most people to maintain a weight that is different from their set point for long periods of time.
The idea of the body weight set point is that our bodies are programmed to be a certain weight or to store a certain amount of fat and that the body will “fight back” against any attempts to change this predetermined weight.
Another explanation of how the body set weight works.

In 1982, nutritional researchers William Bennett and Joel Gurin introduced a controversial theory concerning weight loss. The setpoint theory states that a person’s body has a setpoint weight at which it is programmed to be comfortable. This theory proposes that the body will sabotage itself during weight loss by slowing down metabolism (the body’s rate of burning calories).
You can simply think of the set-point as a weight range that your body attempts to maintain at any given point in time. The body likes things to remain the same – that’s called homeostasis. This also applies to your weight. Whatever your weight has been for a period of time (months) is what the body considers to be normal. This is what we refer to as the set-point.
A part of the brain called the hypothalamus, helps maintain the set-point. It does this by controlling hunger and appetite (your desire to eat) and metabolism (the rate at which you burn calories).

If you eat less and begin losing weight, the hypothalamus attempts to maintain the set-point by increasing your hunger and appetite so you’ll eat more, and by decreasing your metabolism so you’ll burn fewer calories. Of course, that makes it pretty frustrating, and often very difficult, when we’re trying to lose weight! We have 3 protocols we use to control our weight one of them is a ketogenic eating plan during the Weight Loss Phase because it helps you bypass the effects of your body trying to maintain the set-point. Being in dietary ketosis reduces hunger and forces the body to efficiently burn excess fat stores. Being in ketosis also helps improve your mood, which is a plus.

When you stop dieting to lose weight, your body wants to return to the weight that it considered to be normal, or it’s set-point. It’s still attempting to keep your weight stable. If you follow the 3 protocols I have listed and are physically active; however, like us if you can stay at the new, lower weight long enough for the body to come to terms with it and consider it to be the new normal. This is what we refer to when we say the set-point has changed. The number of months it takes to achieve this varies per individual.

Once you’ve maintained your new weight for an adequate period of time, the body will attempt to remain stable at the new set-point. Again, it does that by controlling hunger and appetite and the metabolism. If you occasionally eat too much, the set point decreases your hunger and appetite (so you’ll eat less) and increases your metabolism (so you’ll burn up the extra calories you’ve eaten). However, if you ignore the signals and continue to eat anyway, you’ll eventually overpower the set-point mechanism and gain weight. To avoid that happening to you, it’s important to follow our 3 protocols maintenance plan and continue to work on the lifestyle changes you began during the Weight Loss Phase. In order to manage the new set-point, you will need to continue these lifestyle changes so that you will be able to maintain your weight loss.

Is there evidence for a set point that regulates human body weight?

The Washington Post wrote (William Resberry)

It is so simple the way the doctors explain it: take in more calories than you burn, and you gain weight; burn more than you take in and you lose weight. That, they tell us, is why the miracle diet plans never work. There’s no magic to it. Weight loss is simply a matter of taking in less and/or burning more.

The doctors are wrong. I’ve known it for a long time. Still it is reassuring to see someone else say so in print (as William Bennett and Joel Gurin have done in American Health magazine). For a rough model of how the doctors say weight gain and loss works, think of a balloon with a small leak. If you blow more air into the balloon than escapes through the leak, you will have a fat balloon. Substitute calories for air and exercise for the leak, and you understand why your body looks like a balloon. But if you can stop feeling guilty long enough to think, you will see why the analogy, like the theory behind it, is wrong. Keep blowing in more air than leaks out and the balloon gets bigger and bigger until it bursts. Your fat friends, on the other hand, tend to overeat by about the same amount every day and yet they don’t keep getting bigger. Mostly they remain about the same size. According to the balloon theory, this shouldn’t happen.

What seems to be the case, according to Bennett and Gurin, is that each of us has a “setpoint” for body fat, a level of fatness that our bodies try to maintain, much as a heating system strives to maintain the temperature level of the thermostat. “For practical purposes,” they write, “you can think of your own setpoint as the weight you tend to stay with when you aren’t trying to control calories. You might secretly believe that your weight would balloon up to an infinite number of pounds if you let yourself go. In fact, at some point–your setpoint– you would level off.”

My wife and I have experienced how body set weight works, we came up with 3 protocols to naturally reach our fat loss goals, we both are in our mid-sixties, even seniors can get in the best shape ever by following these 3 protocols that will control the hormones that cause fat storage and to lower your body set weight for long term weight loss.

For me, I was at 210# to 220# for years in the off season, when it was time to do our 12 week diet down to get ready to go on stage, it was always a struggle, I would do the normal calorie restricted diet and add more cardio daily to try to lose body fat, I was always hungry, I was tired, moody, and getting weaker further into our 12 weeks diet down. We both felt horrible during that 12 weeks. I now understand why most of the competitive body builders, after the competition was over and for me also, why they gained so much body fat back in just a short time of 30 to 60 days, I would always go back up to my old weight of 220# to 220#.

Since we both have been on these 3 protocols we have learned how to control our body set weight, we have no issues now being at a lower weight and to have lost our belly, it is so simple to keep it off long turn, what is crazy, we both still can enjoy the comfort foods we like.

As of today, 3/31/2018 my body set weight has again re-set itself to 168#, I lost 52#, my strength is as good as it was when I was at 210#.
