Weight Loss FAQs

Why Weight loss Diet Plan fails?

The gorgeous smart dress hanging in the showcase of the shop lures you to buy it for yourself. But you are not in your true shape for that dress. So you start dieting to reduce the extra flab to get that slim figure. At the beginning you lose weight. But after leaving the diet regime you again start gaining weight. This is the most common and frustrating problem of dieting. There is a significant cause for the failure of diet plans. During diet a person eats less and immediately his or her body receives a signal of starvation mode from the brain. Brian, through this signal, protects the body from losing weight to guard against starvation and death.

How starvation mode is triggered?

The stored energy from fats, carbohydrates and proteins are used by different organ of our body. Glucose is used by the brain for its proper functioning, which it gets from the blood. Blood absorbs glucose from the food we take. During dieting blood receives less amount of glucose. To overcome the shortage of the glucose supply brain starts receiving glucose from the liver. This is the backup glucose stored in the liver as Glycogen and brain finishes this within 3-4 days. After the brain uses the stored Glycogen, the body gets the signal to switch on to starvation mode and subsequently preventing loss of weight.

How dieting and Starvation Mode Mechanism interrelated?

The moment the body goes into starvation mode it receives signal from the brain to reduce the rate of metabolism. As the metabolism goes down body starts burning calories that is equivalent to our intake. Weight loss is minimal in this phase since both calorie intake and calorie burnt are in same proportion.

To fulfill the body’ required protein the brain signals the body to eat up its own body muscle leading to low energy and weakness. At this juncture people generally give up dieting. During this period the body’s low metabolic rate reduces to burn fewer calories than before. Hence, diet plan fails. Instead of losing weight, people tend to gain weight as low metabolism starts burning lesser calories.
