Weight Loss Maintenance=Sisyphean Task

In 2012 I published the hard news of the difficulty of weight loss maintenance. I espoused that the Sponge syndrome (80 billion fat cells that never disappear) causes the problem.

I echoed Gina Kolata's book

Rethinking Thin: The New Science of Weight Loss--and the Myths and Realities of Dieting  link

 when she discussed the false hope of diet and exercise in April 2008.

Kolata wrote a NYT article called

After ‘The Biggest Loser,’ Their Bodies Fought to Regain Weight  link in May 2016

Now in Feb. 2018, I wrote about maintaining weight loss in:

The Chronic Disease of Obesity: How Sponge Syndrome Causes Repeated Weight Gain link

As a great author and reporter I hope Ms. Kolata writes a book titled:

The Sisyphean task of maintaining weight loss

After 10 years it is time to teach the science of obesity, leptin and hyperplasia of adiopocytes.

It's time to get the message out.


  1. Professional--almost free--help to break the weight loss/gain roller coaster.

  2. Yep, my book on Amazon kindle for $4.00.

  3. All that is needed is pandemic public awareness.
