In today’s episode, Rachel takes a deep dive into how to “retrain” your metabolism by reverse dieting, understanding metabolic adaptation and what happens as you get further along in your dieting phase, how to choose foods with the highest thermic effect, and much more!

“The longer you’re in a calorie deficit, the more pronounced all of these adaptations are going to get. This is why you can't, and you shouldn't, be chronically dieting or in a chronic deficit, because eventually your body is going to adapt to all of these things. And you're going to have to consume less and less calories to continue to see the results that you want. This is where reverse dieting comes in.” Rachel Gregory
