Do you cut calories and increase workout intensity in hopes of losing weight only to find that you can’t get the scale to move or you gain weight?
This is a common phenomenon and it’s due to your body being stuck in fight or flight mode.
So when you push the body harder and starve it you cause your body to switch into an advanced protective state of fight or flight called freeze mode. In freeze mode you become extremely lethargic and your metabolism slows down. The harder you push the body and continue to stress it out, the more you drive yourself into metabolic freeze.
In this episode of The Health Fix, Dr. Jannine Krause discusses how to adjust your workouts to help you manage stress more effectively, reboot your energy or keep you out of metabolic freeze so you can lose weight.
What You’ll Learn in This Episode:
• Why monitoring heart rate and HRV are key for managing stress
• How to revive yourself from metabolic freeze
• The mechanism of how metabolic freeze hijacks your metabolism
• What you can do right now to adjust your workouts & diet to get out of metabolic freeze
