Why do some people gain weight and why don’t others? According to research carried out by Dr. James Levine it all has to do with activity. Dr. Levine gathered a group of office workers would were relatively inactive and placed them all on the same diet. This diet contained approximately one thousand more calories than they had been previously eating. Another catch was was put in place was that Dr. Levine did not allow the participants to change their exercise habits.
