Weight Loss Maintenance

I have heard countless times that the number one reason it's hard to maintain weight loss is because our bodies have a certain weight point that our bodies are constantly working to maintain. When we lose weight our bodies fight to gain that weight back to get back to that previous homeostatic weight point. The first question is, is this true? Do our bodies really work in this manner?



If this is true, is it possible to reset our bodies' homeostatic weight point to a lower and more desirable one? How many years would that take?
