June 29 2017: According to a group of weight-loss specialists, the prescription ?eating less and moving more? has failed for obese. The physicians have pointed out that it is a common assertion that obesity can be treated by diet and exercise.
In a commentary published in the journal Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, four weight-loss specialists wrote that it is misimpression that people who are obese for more than a couple of years can return to a normal weight by just dieting and exercising.
?Once obesity is established, however, body weight seems to become biologically ?stamped in? and defended,? wrote Mount Sinai Hospital weight-management physician Christopher Ochner and colleagues from the medical faculties of the University of Colorado, Northwestern University and the University of Pennsylvania.
