I have always had a problem with the "set point" concept. I noticed it when I was gaining weight. I was always jumping on the scale to see if I'd "gotten away with" something, and all too often I had. Then one day my weight would pop up. It seemed to go in 3 pound increments. The same thing happened on the way down. I wanted to lose faster than I'd gained, but it takes longer to lose. I can overeat in a day far more than I can undereat.
That is why consistency is the key to my maintenance. Doing the SparkPoint thing, like Slenderella, keeps my always aware. I have to say No NOW, or I will fall back into the trap of trying to find the "trick" that will let me eat more. If there were really a "trick" to it, no one would be fat. It's just the same old eat right, stay active, moderation in all things. Hard to sell something that dull, but it's what works for me.
No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
