There are four ways to lower your set point. We will explore them all in detail, however, the remainder of the book will focus on the final and most effective method- weight loss surgery. When you lower your set point, your body will view your current weight as lying on the overfed side of your metabolic thermostat and will trigger your hunger to decrease and your metabolism to increase. You will effortlessly shed pounds until your weight matches your new lower set point. Again, this is the holy grail of weight loss since your physiology is now driving you to decrease your fat stores, rather than fighting against it.
