Why does weight always find its way back onto our bodies? The longer a person is overweight, the higher the risk of the obesity becoming "irreversible", according to researchers from the University of Michigan and the National Council of Science and Technology (COINCET) in Argentina.One can and will always lose weight when one eats fewer Calories than one burns.
The new study, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and conducted on mice, revealed that the longer the animals were overweight, the less likely they were to shed the excess weight.
According to the report, the obesity in mice eventually replaces the "normal" body weight, making the mice's "normal" weight higher than before, regardless of whether they were put on diets which previously worked to lose the pounds.
Unless one is a research mouse and eats what is provided.
Or unless one is as stupid as a mouse.
The latter is likely for the fat.
And for obesity researchers, too.
