Get ready to embark on a journey into the intricacies of Metabolic Adaptation in our latest episode of The Balanced Bodies Blueprint, the ultimate destination for health, wellness, and fitness enthusiasts.

Today, we are thrilled to have the distinguished Brandon DaCruz, an online nutrition and physique coach, join us for an in-depth exploration of metabolic adaptation. Brandon, with over 15 years of experience in the fitness industry and a track record of working with over 1000 clients, is a well-known figure featured in Men's Fitness Magazine, Muscular Development, and Bodybuilding.com.

In this episode, we unravel the mysteries of metabolism, exploring the components that make it up and understanding how it adapts to changes in energy intake. From reduced basal metabolic rate (BMR) to the impact of hormonal changes, we break down the science behind metabolic adaptation.

Discover the crucial role of non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT) in hindering weight loss and how it responds to calorie deficits. Learn how our body's everyday movements, from walking to fidgeting, are influenced by changes in energy intake.

Brandon, Coach Vinny, and Dr. Eryn produce a dynamic conversation, with personal stories and real-world examples that will keep you hooked throughout the episode. Whether you're an athlete, a fitness enthusiast, or someone seeking quick fixes for your health, this episode is packed with actionable insights to elevate your understanding of metabolic adaptation.
