In a physiological context homeostasis refers to the body’s desire to maintain equilibrium at all costs.
Why is it that some people can seemingly eat everything and not gain weight. While others diligently eating their weight-watcher salads gains weight if they so much as look at a donut?
Well, it’s complicated, and there’s a lot of variables at play. But perhaps the biggest of these is homeostasis and your bodies desire to maintain equilibrium at all costs.
Now homeostasis might not be a term you’ve heard all that often, but I’m sure you’ve all heard of metabolism. Usually around terms like slow, fast and even broken.
