    RESTING METABOLISM

    Resting metabolism falls by 15 calories per day for every 2.2 lbs lost for a low-calorie diet

    Resting metabolism slows by 15 calories for every 2.2 pounds that is lost on a low-calorie diet according to a 2009 paper by Eric Doucet and A. Schwartz from the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

    This was true for both men and women.

    So if you lose 22 lbs, resting metabolism falls by 150 calories per day. Read the entire article | Email this article

    RESTING METABOLISM

    Resting metabolism falls by 11 calories per day for every 2.2 lbs lost from surgery

    Resting metabolism slows by 11 calories per day for every 2.2 pounds that is lost from weight loss surgery according to a 2009 paper by Eric Doucet and A. Schwartz from the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

    This was less than the decrease of 15 calories per day seen with weight loss from a low-calorie diet. Read the entire article | Email this article

    RESTING METABOLISM

    Resting metabolism falls by 25 calories per day for every 2.2 lbs lost from liposuction

    Resting metabolism slows by 25 calories per day for every 2.2 pounds that is lost from weight loss due to liposuction surgery according to a 2009 paper by Eric Doucet and A. Schwartz from the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

    This may be because body fat releases leptin, a hormone which decreases appetite and increases metabolism, therefore, by removing fat cells, liposuction may decrease leptin levels, and thus, decrease resting metabolism.

    Studies have shown that giving leptin injections "reverse the effects of weight loss on resting [metabolism]," the paper notes.

    This was much greater than the decrease of 15 calories per day seen with weight loss from a low-calorie diet, and the 11 calorie decrease seen with weight loss surgery. Read the entire article | Email this article
