The Setpoint Diet Book: the best way to end yo-yo dieting
Yo-yo dieting, also called weight cycling, is a situation wherein you lose weight and regain it over and over again. It is a common problem. Statistics show that approximately 97% of dieters regain every pound of the weight they lost — and then some — within three years. But we’re not telling you something you probably don’t already know.
If you’re like most people who struggle with their weight, you’ve been on a half dozen or more diets in the past several years. Oh, you lost weight on each diet, sometimes a lot of weight. But you were hungry, irritable, and just plain miserable the entire time you were on the diet. Though you reduce your calorie intake by 500 calories per day — which should have guaranteed you a loss of 1 pound per week, according to the calorie-deficit theory of weight loss — you were lucky to lose half a pound. Some weeks, you didn’t lose anything, or worse….you even gained a couple of pounds.
After a few months of such misery and disappointment, you went off the diet and started eating “normal” meals again. And what happened? That’s right. You started gaining the weight back fairly quickly. In just a few months, you had gained all the weight back plus an additional few pounds. You were worse off than before you started the diet. In fact, it would have been better if you had never gone on that starvation diet in the first place. That’s because starvation dieting itself leads to yo-yo dieting.
The Setpoint Diet is the best way to end yo-yo dieting because it addresses the underlying cause of weight gain — which has nothing to do with the number of calories you consume! Rather, it has everything to do with your setpoint weight.
Yo-Yo dieting: setpoint weight, starvation dieting, and the Setpoint Diet Book
Setpoint weight is 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 number of calories you take in or exercise off.
You see, your body is a finely tuned biological machine that regulates your weight the same way it regulates your blood glucose levels, your body temperature, your blood pressure, and so much more. This is how it regulates your weight: your brain, digestive system, and hormones talk to each other through a variety of feedback loops to synchronize the activities that automatically maintain body fat at a specific level (setpoint weight).
It works similarly to the thermostat in your home. For instance, the thermostat “tells” your heating or air conditioning system not only what the temperature inside your home is but also what it should be. It instructs the HVAC system to make the temperature whatever it “thinks” it should be at. Similarly, your setpoint stimulates or suppresses your appetite and raises or lowers your metabolism in response to how much fat it “thinks” you should store.
Just as the HVAC’s job is to obey, without question, the instructions of the thermostat, your body obeys the instructions of your setpoint. This is why starvation dieting will never bring permanent weight-loss results and why it leads to yo-yo dieting.
As you’ll learn in The Setpoint Diet book, you will lose weight by starvation dieting. But the body fights back. When you start to cut calories, your body’s metabolic alarm goes off, signaling your body that you are not consuming as many calories as usual. In response, your body demands more food and starts burning fewer calories. Appetite goes up, calorie burn goes down. It does everything it can to keep you near your setpoint weight.
Lowering the setpoint weight: key to permanent weight loss
Every frustrated dieter knows, deep down, that cutting calories (starvation dieting) doesn’t work for long-term weight loss. They know it causes them to be heavier in the long run. Yet, they keep trying various starvation-type diets hoping that this time, it will finally work.
There are many reasons. They might feel they weren’t doing it correctly or that this diet wasn’t the right one for them. Or they just didn’t have enough willpower, or they didn’t stick with it long enough.
But the biggest reason people keep trying various starvation diets without ultimate success is that they don’t have any other method to replace it with. They’ve been taught that the quantity of calories is the most important factor in weight maintenance and weight loss and that they must starve their bodies to force them to burn fat.
Almost every traditional diet is based on this calorie-deficit theory of weight loss, and that’s precisely the problem. You see, the calorie-deficit theory of weight loss is incorrect in the way it is being taught and practiced.
Quantity Vs. quality of calories
The calorie-deficit theory of weight loss treats all calories the same. It “says,” it doesn’t matter what you eat as long as you do not consume more than a certain number of calories per day or week. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Research shows that calories vary greatly in their effects on the body depending upon the sources from which they come. The body quickly digests refined carbs, for instance, and turns them into glucose. This glucose is then rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, causing a rapid rise in blood glucose levels. The pancreas releases the hormone insulin to take the glucose into your cells.
Consuming a large amount of refined carbs at once — such as a big plate of pasta and two slices of garlic bread — causes a large amount of glucose to enter the bloodstream. Insulin must clear it from your bloodstream before it reaches toxic levels, so it sends most of this glucose straight to your fat cells.
Compare this to what happens when you consume a plate of non-starchy vegetables and a piece of steak. Though vegetables are also carbs, they contain a magic ingredient — fiber. This fiber slows digestion and glucose absorption. Just a little glucose at a time is secreted into the bloodstream, which insulin can easily take to the non-fat cells of the body.
Now let’s discuss this high-protein steak. It takes more calories for your body to digest protein than it does to digest fat or carbohydrate. Plus, protein is almost impossible for your body to store as fat.
So, think about it for a minute. Here’s a person eating a large plate of pasta with two slices of garlic bread. Another person is eating non-starchy vegetables and steak. Which of the two people will likely gain more weight than the other one? The veggie/steak eater, of course.
Quality of calories and setpoint weight
Not surprisingly, one of the main causes of an elevated setpoint weight is consuming poor-quality calories, such as highly processed foods, starchy carbs, and sugars. Research shows overconsumption of poor-quality calories causes hormonal clogs, neurological inflammation, and gut dysbiosis, which leads to an elevated setpoint weight.
When you have a hormonal clog, your brain no longer receives correct signals from your hormones that normally allow you to burn body fat automatically. You see, the hypothalamus in your brain is responsible for regulating metabolism. To do this job, it relies on signals from hormones, primarily leptin, and insulin, to give it regular status updates on your fat levels.
A poor-quality diet jams the signals leptin and insulin try to send the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus can no longer automatically balance calories in with calories out. Instead of working to burn excess fat, the hypothalamus now works to hold onto this fat.
Neurological inflammation is a contributing factor to a hormonal clog. If the hypothalamus becomes inflamed, it cannot receive correct signals from your hormones. The result is an elevated setpoint weight and weight gain.
Inflammation, it must be stated, is not always a bad thing. It is a necessary function of the immune system. It only becomes dangerous if it continues too long, a condition called “chronic inflammation.” Research shows chronic inflammation to be the underlying cause of many serious health problems.
But inflammation — chronic or otherwise — is not supposed to occur in the brain. The blood-brain barrier is supposed to keep bacteria, toxins, and other foreign invaders out of its fragile environment. When the blood-brain barrier is compromised, however, it becomes “leaky,” allowing these foreign invaders to pass into the brain’s environment, causing inflammation.
Though your body is composed of an estimated 100 trillion bacterial cells, only about 10% of them are human. And most of them live in your digestive system.
The bacteria in the gut have a tremendous effect on your setpoint weight. These gut bacteria extract calories from the foods you eat, store calories for later use as body fat, and much more. They can also influence the development of neurological inflammation.
Good bacteria that line your digestive tract serve as a barrier against bad bacteria, keeping the bad bacteria from entering your bloodstream and causing inflammation throughout the body. If the balance between good bacteria and bad bacteria shifts, a condition called gut dysbiosis, the bad bacteria can damage your stomach lining and elevate your setpoint weight.
