How does metabolism alter when we diet?

philip young asked the Naked Scientists:
   
My wife has difficulty losing weight and I notice many people who diet seem to have a more difficult time in losing weight.

Does the body's metabolic rate change when there are less calories available in a way to adapt to the environmental conditions?

Do we have a starvation mode, metabolically?

thanks

What do you think?
