Addressing the problem of how weight is regulated, how obesity is acquired, and how it is cured, Weight Regulation and Curing Acquired Obesity provides the mathematical basis of control system theory as applied to weight regulation. Unlike the majority of weight control literature which focuses on biochemistry, this innovative title discusses the biomechanical aspects of a dual closed loop system which mechanically senses meal volume and accumulated intraabdominal fat, where accurate sensation depends on the mechanical strength of the anterior abdominal wall.<ul> <li> <p>Presents a unified theory of weight regulation, explains the pathology of acquired obesity, and offers therapy directed to correct the underlying pathophysiology. </p></li> <li> <p>Discusses surgical therapy directed to re-establish the strength of the anterior abdominal wall,  reverse the pathology, and cure acquired obesity. </p></li> <li> <p>Contains a chapter on future animal and human studies to support the neuromechanical hypothesis. </p></li></ul>
