Adaptive thermogenesis can make a difference in the ability of obese individuals to lose body weight
International Journal of Obesity, 08/01/2012
Tremblay A et al. – As the decrease in thermogenesis persists over time, it is also likely associated with a greater predisposition to body–weight regain after weight loss. Globally, these observations suggest that the adaptive reduction in thermogenesis that accompanies a prolonged negative energy balance is a major determinant of the ability to spontaneously lose body fat.
