Nuala Byrne, the study's lead author suggests that partaking in diet resting periods helps to combat adaptive thermogenesis, which previous studies have proven "creates the ideal situation for weight regain" after dieters have lost initial weight.
The researchers concluded that dieters should attempt to rebalance their caloric requirements once they have slimmed down in order to sustain their weight loss and prevent adaptive thermogenesis from having a strong effect on them.
7] This adaptive thermogenesis is robustly activated by cold via an indirect pathway mediated by the sympathetic nervous system (SNS).

of the liver in tree shrew (Tupaia belangeri) during cold acclimation.
In contrast, thermogenic adipose tissue defends against hypothermia and obesity through adaptive thermogenesis
mediated by the regulated expression and activity of mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1).
A cold-inducible coactivator of nuclear receptors linked to adaptive thermogenesis.
Association of bovine carcass phenotypes with genes in an adaptive thermogenesis pathway.
Now, researchers propose that the largest contributor to adaptive thermogenesis
is increased concentrations of pollutants in the blood, rather than changes that weight loss seems to trigger in the dieter's hormones.
It has also been demonstrated that T3, T4 affect adaptive thermogenesis
by influencing several aspects of energy metabolism (Krotkiewski, 2002; Zhu et al.
When cold, the body switches on adaptive thermogenesis
in brown fat and in skeletal muscle cells, but what controls the mechanism is poorly known, notes Bruce M.
In the present study, we examined the effects of exogenous leptin on the adaptive thermogenesis
and hormone concentrations in Eothenomys miletus by transferring them from a short (SD, 8h :16h L: D) to long day photoperiod (LD, 16h: 8h L:D).
