In a story by the US Department of Agriculture, research has taken place where scientists have been trying to determine why there are dieters who are able to lose weight easier than others, as well as keeping it off.

Nancy L. Keim, and Kevin D. Laugero, a chemist and nutrition scientist respectfully, are leading the studies revolved around the brain and the ease of weight loss. Keim and Laugero are both with the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service Western Human Nutrition Research Center in California.

Since America is going through a major problem with obesity, The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have estimated that a large portion of the population are overweight or obese. In one of the investigations, 29 obese women, around the age of 20 to 45, took part in a 12 week weight loss regimen. It was found that several factors helped determine their weight management, such as the patterns of decision making, and the levels of cortisol, which is a stress related hormone.

Ultimately, the study concluded with varying results of weight loss among the participants, which ranged from 0 to 27 pounds. The results seemed to ignore the fact that each person in the study were eating the same food in the calorie controlled environment.

The findings that centered around Cortisol were based in saliva samples collected on two separate testing dates. Not really a surprise, the cortisol concentrations were exceptionally higher from the beginning to the end of the 12 week study. It seems that cortisol concentration is an indicator of psychological stress. This stress is usually a major factor to a dieter’s relapse back to unhealthy eating habits.
