How to have a Fast Metabolism for Life
To understand maintenance from a metabolic perspective, you must understand weight loss from a metabolic perspective. When you are in the process of losing weight, you are changing what the body was doing before when it was gaining weight or holding at a certain weight. You are shaking things loose and getting things moving again. When you feed your body everything it needs and remove elements that were contributing to weight gain and weight loss resistance, your metabolism regenerates and gets hotter and stronger, so that your internal transformation of food into energy becomes more efficient, quicker, and easier. Weight loss is about metabolic movement.
Maintenance, on the other hand, is about holding steady. It is about regaining homeostasis at a new level. You have moved on from where you might have been stuck before, but once you achieve a weight and level of health that you want, your goal is to reestablish stability at this new level. The longer you stay at that weight, the more firmly established your metabolic process becomes at that weight. Your body gets accustomed to living there, metabolically, and instead of being weight-loss resistant, you become weight-gain resistant.
Maintenance is the process of getting you firmly established at your new weight, so you stay there your whole life. This won't happen if you bombard your body with metabolic disruptors, but if you continue to feed it real, good, whole food, you keep it moving on a regular basis, and you manage your stress in healthy ways, then when you do encounter the occasional indulgence, your metabolism will burn right through it. You can go to a party and eat a piece of cake, or have a drink, or go to a restaurant, or get sick, or sprain your ankle, or go through a stressful period, and you can bounce right back. That is our goal.
So...there are some foods that I leave out of our plans when my goal is to heal a slow and sluggish metabolism. But, some things I leave out are healthy and can help you maintain your newly found Fast Metabolism! Try some delicious new ingredients.
