Hi guys I am interested if anyone watched last nights documentary on 'Super Slimmers, did they really keep the weight off'? I did, and found it a bit disheartening to be honest. Apparently our bodies are preset to put on extra fat during famine going back to the ark ages, and from the gist of it, when we diet and consume a set amount of calories our bodies think we are going into a famine state and our metabolism slows down to preserve fats. The vast majority of people who lose wight will put it back on and more as our bodies will set themselves at a weight it thinks we should be, regardless. The science behind it proves this scenario. I found the programme very interesting but also felt myself feeling flat. I understand that eating a healthy normal diet and exercising and maintaining it is essential, but, if our bodies have a preset trigger to slow out metabolism when it thinks it is starving how are all of us going to ever get down to lose the weight and keep it off?
