Fit Forever: Keeping Your Metabolism Going While Losing Fat With TruHealth™
For anyone who has ever been on a diet or witnessed someone else on a diet, they often see good results. But more often than not, those results diminish and our body often returns to pre-diet levels of weight and fat. The reason for this yo-yo effect is because the body’s first reaction to someone on a diet is to slow down the metabolism, and often it will stay at that level, creating a cycle of loss and gain for dieters.
The yo-yo effect of weight loss can be seen in unfortunate stories like that of Danny Cahill, the winner of Season 8 of the reality show “The Biggest Loser.” Cahill lost an impressive 239 pounds in seven months only to gain 100 pounds back despite his own efforts to keep it off. A study done on the show’s Season 8 contestants demonstrated that the majority experienced significantly lower basal metabolic rates (BMR) after being on the show, which contributed to their substantial weight regain that they had worked so hard to lose.
Mannatech’s TruHealth system supports a path to long-term health through body composition development that focuses on creating lean muscle, fat loss that contribute to supporting the metabolism.
According to the Mayo Clinic, body composition that includes lean muscle mass can increase your metabolism to help you burn calories. A higher percentage of muscle mass can help you burn as much as 15 percent more calories per day. Weight loss programs and dieting tends to slow down a person’s metabolism, but replacing fat with lean muscle will help support weight maintenance or loss.
“This is where a fat-loss program is much more valuable than a typical weight loss program,” said Dr. Steve Nugent, Mannatech’s Senior Global Wellness Director and Chairman of the Mannatech Global Scientific Advisory Board. “If you don’t build lean muscle with a high protein regime and exercise, your weight will quickly rebound. This is because as you diet, your body’s metabolism slows, reducing the amount of calories you burn at rest. Adding lean muscle will help aid your efforts to burn calories at rest and maintain your metabolism, making a possible effect of a fat-loss program longer lasting than your typical diet plan.”
Excess body fat, especially around your body’s midsection, will likely contribute to increased fatigue and difficulty in performing some physical exertions such as standing or walking for long periods or climbing stairs. More muscle mass can improve how much endurance your body has to daily activities and will help your joints to carry your body mass.
Mannatech’s TruHealth™ Fat-Loss System was specifically designed to improve better body composition by targeting fat loss instead of weight loss to help participants lose inches sustainably while building muscle.* Proper nourishment is an important building block of this program, which includes three all plant-based, naturally sourced products, free from allergens such as dairy, gluten, soy, whey, and artificial sweeteners and stimulants. These products will help propel you into a more sustainable lifestyle of keeping the fat off long-term. *ŧ
