Good points Rob. It’s important to be on the lookout for misconceptions such as these. We already know that overfeeding does not per se cause continuous weight gain or metabolic damage. There is cognitive dissonance there so sometimes simple intuition helps. Would nature have a built-in positive feedback loop of this sort? From an evolutionary standpoint, that doesn’t really make sense, so maybe the study’s authors missed something, and Rob hit it on the head.
