The obesity problem is killing most of us.

The Setpoint

Your body has a weight setpoint. When you lose fat, your metabolism decreases to preserve energy and prevent starvation. This is why most diets fail.

Scientists have now found several genes in the brain that regulate this setpoint

In the brain, special neurons sense hormones and regulate metabolism and appetite. If you have too much fat, your brain directly signals your fat cells to release their energy.

It works like a fuel gauge. People gain excess fat when this gauge isn't sensitive enough.
