What is Your Genetic Set Point and Why Should You Care? (Important for Fat Loss!)

The genetic set point is the percentage of body fat your body is most comfortable with, and dropping body fat any lower would lead to several side effects that may include hunger, moodiness, irritability, loss of sleep, loss of sex drive, hair loss, weakness and lethargy.

That set point differs from person to person, some of us at lower body fat percentage and some at a much higher percentage. We all have our genetic set point.

Your body adapts to the particular percentage it has been accustomed to and wants to stay there where it’s safe and manageable. The body will regulate hunger hormones to get you to eat just enough to keep you at that range.

The good news? You can alter your genetic set point!

We've noticed that if changes in calorie intake and expenditure are made at a slow and at a steady pace, your body will tend to be less resistant to the new body fat percentage changes you’re trying to achieve.

Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Maintain a minor daily calorie deficit
  2. Eat lean protein with every meal for sateity
  3. Add 1 Large salad at midday + 1 cooked vegetable evening for sateity
  4. Increase your NEAT
  5. Add fruits for dessert
  6. Find exercise you like. We suggest strength training!
  7. LISS & MISS
  8. Project into the future... can you maintain this way of eating and exercise for life?
