“We now know that metabolism is regulated by a complex feedback loop with the brain as CEO and the hormones as messengers. We’ve learned that glitches can occur along this feedback loop, impairing metabolism, promoting fat storage, and often causing the appetite to increase. We know there are strong genetic influences that increase weight-prone tendencies, and especially in genetically vulnerable people, glitches can be triggered by environmental factors such as dieting, sleep deprivation, certain medications, and endocrine-disrupting obesogens. These glitches are not within a person’s control, they are a medical problem and should be treated as such.”
