What Is Adaptive Thermogenesis?
Adaptive thermogenesis is the name given to the slowing of your metabolic rate when you remain in a prolonged calorie deficit. The greater the calorie deficit and the greater the duration of the deficit the higher this reduction in metabolic rate will be.
As you lose fat and your body weight goes down so will the number of calories you need to maintain your weight, which means the number of calories you can eat and lose weight will also change. For example, what worked for you at 280 lbs won’t necessarily work for you at 220 lbs as your body’s needs will be different.
