Obesity has been described by the WHO as the largest health threat facing mankind. Obesity is manifestly an issue of energy balance. Yet, there is surprisingly little consensus about why such energy imbalance develops. This meeting included presentations by world experts on the plethora of ideas about the mechanisms underlying obesity, and hence how we may tackle it.
