It said that your body "fights" to return to its previous weight. Isn't that what we've been saying all along? Trying to force yourself to lose weight just doesn't work in the long run. So eat, be happy, and enjoy life!

This lends a lot of credibility to the idea that some ppl are just meant to be fat. I sometimes wonder how much of the health risks associated with obesity are actually due to the physiological stress of constantly fighting biology. Someone needs to do a study to see if heavy ppl who have never dieted are better off.
