Hormones, Chemistry and Long-Term Weight Gain

"Long-term fat gain works like this: a person's hormones go haywire, causing his set-point to rise, and then his body fights to keep him storing more fat…. Most obese people hold a stable weight around their elevated set-point. Obesity is simply the result of the body defending this elevated weight - but in a very regulated way. A heavy person's higher set-point prompts the body to store more fat in just the same way that a thin person's lower set-point prompts the body to burn more fat. We all have a set-point - and that's what determines how slim or stocky we are long-term. Not calorie counting." - Jonathan Bailor, researcher and author
