Obesity results from an energy imbalance, i.e. when energy intake exceeds energy expenditure. José van den Heuvel throws light on the reasons behind this phenomenon. She tests various diets on rats, such as a high-fat diet and free-choice diets, to unravel which brain areas, neuropeptides and neural pathways are involved and may underlie the differences in feeding behaviour evoked by the different free-choice diets.
