Recent studies have led to the conclusion that a continuous gain in weight resulting in obesity is caused by eating more than is needed for growth, maintenance and energy requirements. In the normal person, the appetite is satisfied at a point where nourishment is adequate and the weight becomes stabilized. In the obese person the appetite is not satisfied on such a level, and an excessive amount of food is ingested. There is a prevalent belief among some that persons occasionally gain weight even though they do not overeat, and that others do not lose weight when they are underfed.
