On fatnews there is an article on mice showing that 60% of the weight regain is due to a lowered metabolism and 40% due to increased appetite. Have studies on humans been done to determine the ratios of metabolism vs appetite for weight regain?

Lord_Humungus,

I don’t how much of weight gain is due to an increase in appetite and how much is due to a decrease in metabolism.

I also don’t remember the article about mice that you referred to.
