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
