Excellent article. As one who has been a yo-yo dieter all of my adult life, this helps clarify the weight regain issues I've battled with. "If you were living 40,000 years ago, before agriculture, supermarkets, and fast food, you would have been one of the “lucky” ones whose genes made you a lot more likely to survive hard times." What were once lucky genes are now a modern metabolic hurdle. Adapt and overcome!
