Spanish term or phrase: hacia una linea positiva
Peninsular spanish text about the effect of whole body vibration on strength exercise. There are a few terms in English:

La pérdida de un steady state en el energy balance hacia una línea positiva, incluye ajustes metabólicos que pueden exigir cambios biológicos como la adipogénesis y el riesgo incrementado de enfermedades crónicas no transmisibles (Human Energy Requeriments 2001)

Would you talk about: the loss of a steady state in energy balance towards a positive line?? Sounds weird, can anyone tell me what this means please?
cheers

positive balance
Explanation:
Maybe I would rearrange the whole sentence, stating that the loss of a steadty state results in a positive energy balance, as shown in the following example:

"This approach cannot be applied to dietary energy recommendations, because intakes that exceed requirements will produce a positive balance, which may lead to overweight and obesity in the long term."
