This is especially true when the individuals are physically inactive. Maintenance of lean body mass is an energy-expensive process. , 60–70% of daily basal energy requirements for adults). Therefore the less body protein, the lower the energy requirement. If weight loss consists of significant amounts of body protein, then the formerly overfat person will have a lower basal energetic requirement and an increased energy efficiency in terms of the weight regain as fat. Homeostasis in Body Weight Regulation Healthy adult humans vary very little over the years in their body weight.

It may begin with a conscious effort to consume less food but then may continue because of a change in the signals for foodintake initiation and cessation and a change in the efficiency with which the body uses the food consumed.
