It’s biology, not willpower

More than 70 percent of American adults are overweight. That’s 155 million Americans. And, about 40 percent of them are clinically obese.

Worldwide, 2.2 billion people are overweight.

Depressing? Yes, but studies by Kevin Hall, a scientist at the National Institute of Health, and other researchers are showing that it is “biology, not simply a lack of willpower that makes it so hard to lose weight.”

They conclude, “The key to weight loss appears to be highly personalized rather than trendy diets. And, while weight loss will never be easy for anyone, the evidence is mounting that it’s possible for anyone to reach a healthy weight. People just need to find their best way there.”

We read about this research in the June 5, 2017, issue of Time magazine.
