Your Metabolism, Your Weight, Your Nutrition, and You

What Happens to Your Body, Brain, and Metabolism When You Diet?

We have an in-depth blog article that dives deep into this topic, but here are a few quick takeaways:

Stressed woman icon

Increased Stress

Cortisol (known as the “stress hormone”) acts with epinephrine (aka “adrenaline”) in human beings to initiate an instinctual fight-or-flight response. Restricting calorie intake through dieting can cause increased levels of cortisol, thereby triggering more stress to the dieter.

Drained battery icon

Energy Depletion

Our bodies require a broad range of nutrients to keep everything running optimally and extreme calorie restriction puts those nutrients at severe risk. Severe calorie restriction means your body isn’t getting enough nutrients to support its basic functions—such as breathing, digesting, and maintaining body temperature. When this happens, the body will start to break down its own stores to use for energy.

Loss of Lean Body Mass

When diet-imposed calorie restrictions come into play, your body may pull amino acids (the building blocks of protein) from its own muscle stores to complete its necessary functions. This decreases lean body mass, which further slows metabolism.

Preoccupation With Food

Shortcuts to reaching a healthy weight can have an impact on mental health. At a minimum, extreme drops in food intake and being overly focused on fewer calories can lead to a dieter becoming preoccupied with food cravings throughout the day. This is yet another reason why slow, steady changes are a better option for weight management.

Healthcare icon

Other Health Care Risks

When the body is exposed to prolonged and severe calorie restriction, it can decrease your ability to consciously regulate calorie intake. This increases the risk of overeating and weight gain. Our ability to control our food choices and the amount we eat is influenced by genes and hormones—such as insulin, leptin, ghrelin, thyroid hormones, and the sympathetic nervous system.

Leave The Diet Mentality Behind

Clock made with plate and food

I came across GenoPalate several months ago and couldn't pass it up! I love how it suggests foods that are most beneficial and healthy to your body type. These suggestions help you when it’s time to grocery shop. I highly recommend it!

-Jess A

So, you now have a basic picture of why diets fail. As the saying goes, “slow and steady wins the race.” The way forward is to leave a diet mentality and the resulting yo-yo effects behind. If you're still skeptical, consider this: millions of people try a fad diet of one type or another during any given year. They sign up for a meal plan regimen based on restrictions and deprivals that ultimately fail. If this approach actually worked, there wouldn't be an obesity crisis in the USA.

And so it goes that a “diet” is not actually HOW you eat to lose weight, but the WAY you eat each and every day. This involves resolution toward lifestyle change with weight loss as one of many possible outcomes. A sustained commitment to a healthy diet can just as easily involve a goal toward lowering your cholesterol, improving your sleep, or better fueling your physical activities. Food is life. The purpose and outcomes of better nutrition are practically endless.

Are there practical steps toward sustainable weight loss? Of course. First of all, remember the old saying, “all things in moderation.” Instead of labeling foods as “good” or “bad,” focus on eating mostly nutrient-dense foods. Moderation also means allowing ourselves to eat foods that might not be as nutritious every so often. Shifting our minds away from what we can't have or the thought that a food is “forbidden” can actually help us decrease our cravings for these types of foods, as well as reduce the risk of binging or overeating.

We can and should eat less-than-healthy foods on occasion without feeling guilty. If you do occasionally eat too much of a food that is not considered healthy, remember that the next healthy choice you can make is just a meal or snack away. Combined with even some basic, regular exercise, you can enjoy a healthy lifestyle that doesn't feel like punishment.

What Our Customers Are Saying

TK

After spending the past year on a weight loss and fitness program, my progress stalled and I was bored with my food. After getting my results and recipes from GenoPalate, I had options for eating healthier while staying in my macros, and resumed my progress, almost immediately knocking off five of the few remaining pounds separating me from my goal.

-Topher K.

Genopalate was very thorough and gave me information and insight I wasn't even expecting. It told me I was likely to be sensitive to gluten, and knowing that, I could test it, and figured out the reason I was so bloated all the time! There's a lot of other useful things as well, but at this point this is the biggest deal for me!

-Maria B.

KB

I've been given an array of foods to focus on. The truth is, I was pretty close intuitively, but the key is know the breakdown of carbs, protein and fats. That's where I was off. You need that equation. I have just begun, but I feel like I will have more success now. 2 weeks later and I'm down 5 pounds without struggling!

The GenoPalate Difference: Science-Based Nutrition For Your Needs

People after workout, laughing

I found it interesting the foods that were suggested for me are the ones I craved and wanted all the time. However, trying to follow low carb/keto for a very long time, I am excited I can finally eat the foods I guilty about before. I hope this journey allows me to have a healthy relationship with food now. I just got my results a few days ago and I haven’t seen a change in weight but I do wake up energized and maintain energy through out the day without caffeine.
