Resting metabolism dropped 11% in women who lost 11%
This decrease in metabolism was maintained after the women's weight stabilized.
The women lost an average of 22 pounds, dropping from 195 pounds to 173 pounds.
Resting metabolism dropped by 267 calories per day, from 1690 calories to 1423 calories per day.
"To summarize, the present study confirmed that steady weight loss in humans is accompanied by a decrease in [resting metabolism]," the researchers concluded. Read the entire article | Email this article
Female metabolism 11 percent lower than males after adjustment for height, weight and age
Resting metabolism falls by 15 calories per day for every 2.2 lbs lost for a low-calorie diet
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 falls by 11 calories per day for every 2.2 lbs lost from surgery
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 falls by 25 calories per day for every 2.2 lbs lost from liposuction
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

BOOK - WHY WE GET FAT
When we eat less, we get hungry and move less, and metabolism slows down, notes Gary Taubes
"The same is true for humans."
"Eventually, our bodies compensate."
Therefore, as Taubes points out, the advice we have been given by health experts, that losing weight is simply a matter of diet and exercise, ignores this fact, and can only lead to temporary weight loss. Read the entire article | Email this article

Obese women could burn an additional 300 calories per day if they stood more, sat less
This difference in activity accounted for an additional 300 calories burned in lean women.
The authors of the study concluded that "If the obese women adopted the activity patterns of the lean women, including a modification of posture allocation, an additional 300 [calories] could be expended every day."
