ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the results of a British study published in the "International Journal of Obesity" on losing weight among overweight and obese persons. It was found that the hormone oxyntomodulin can increase energy expenditure to reduce calorie intake. The participants of the research were injected with the hormone three times daily for four consecutive days.

    Obesity is defined as the excess storage of energy in the form of fat that results from imbalances between energy intake and expenditure. The study of the components of energy balance has undergone a significant advancement with the application of the doubly labeled water (DLW) method to the...

    Cannabinoid-1 receptor (CB-1R) inverse agonists are associated with weight loss efficacy in clinical trials. Whether this is due to reduction in food intake, an increase in energy expenditure, or a combination of the two remains to be determined. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of...

    Background: Individuals who are weight-reduced or leptin deficient have a lower energy expenditure coupled with higher hunger and disinhibition and/or delayed satiation compared with never-weight-reduced control subjects. Because exogenous leptin inhibits feeding in congenitally leptin-deficient...
