It doesn’t seem to matter how many diet books get published or how much consumer-friendly advice is offered on the talk shows – we still don’t seem to grasp what makes us overweight and what we can do about it.

What's behind the obesity epidemic and how have some people maintained a healthy weight? Understanding what the science actually shows is an essential step towards the body size that’s right for you.
