In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy discuss the often cited concern of metabolism and how weight loss and diets can affect resting metabolic rate. Adaptive thermogenesis is one of the body's homeostatic responses to changing caloric intake, which can lead to a change in metabolic rate. They discuss how these relate to fasting and how to use this information to optimize fasting results and support long-term metabolic health.
