refers to the level of stored fat the body works to maintain by regulating your appetite and metabolism through your hormones, genes, and brain
, regardless of the quantity of calories you take in or exercise off.
Setpoint also explains why you have such a tough time keeping fat off through traditional diet and exercise programs. Think of it as a clogged sink. What if your plumber came in and said the cure of the clog was to stop using your sink? Sure, this fixes the symptom (the sink’s not going to overflow) but not the cause (what’s causing the clog?). And who wants dirty hands for the rest of their life?! The cause of that clog is eating poor-quality foods and establishing habits that throw your fat-burning, appetite-taming hormones out of whack.
This plan is about lowering your setpoint in order to keep your body in a fat-burning mode 24/7. When this happens, you also KEEP those pounds off. Every day of your life, you will wake up in the type of body that you deserve and that has previously seemed impossible to achieve.
I know this is a lot to take in. But understand that we all have a setpoint--- and that’s what determines how thing or overweight we are LONG-TERM. Not calories-counting or traditional forms of exercising. When you increase the quality of your eating, exercise, and habits, you lower your setpoint-and get your body to burn fat rather than store it.
That’s what The Setpoint Diet is all about. It removes the willpower, shame, and guilt from the weight and diabetes equation. It ends the frustration and the yo-yo dieting. It stops the painful and expensive health consequences of diabesity and does it with a proven system that will set the naturally thin person inside of you free once and for all.
