Bray, 2001. In an affluent society, energy-sparing devices in the workplace and at home reduce energy expenditure and may enhance the tendency to gain weight (25). In children, there is a graded increase in BMI as the number of hours of television watching increases (26). A number of additional observations illustrate the importance of decreased energy expenditure in the pathogenesis of weight gain. The highest frequency of overweight occurs in men in sedentary occupations. Estimates of energy intake and energy expenditure in Great Britain suggest that reduced energy expenditure is more important than increased food intake in causing obesity (25).

Overeating: Voluntary overeating (repeated ingestion of energy exceeding daily energy needs) can increase body weight in normal-weight men and women. When these subjects stop overeating, they invariably lose most or all of the excess weight. The use of overeating protocols to study the consequences of food ingestion has shown the importance of genetic factors in the pattern of weight gain (33). Progressive hyperphagic obesity is one clinical form of overeating (34). A small number of patients begin to be overweight in childhood and then have unrelenting weight gain, usually surpassing 140 kg (300 lb) by 30 years of age.
