FOOD DOES NOT CONTRIBUTE TO WEIGHT INCREASE OR OBESITY.(© 6.8.2016: Dr. V.M. Palaniappan, Ph.D. email@example.com; Mobile: 6-012-2071414)
You could have come across the news that came out in Medical X’press yesterday (August 5, 2016) that had the title:
Dieting approaches may not be effective for weight loss, according to research
The following is the condensed version of the news:
A research team in University of Otago, comprising of Dr. Sook Ling Leong, Dr. Jill Haszard, and Dr. Andrew Gray have found in New Zealand, through their 3-year study that the weight control measures, through the control of food, in women between 40 and 50, did not succeed.
They mention that women in that age bracket are known to be at high risk of weight gain.
The original paper is said to have come from the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (2016). DOI: 10.1016/j.jand.2016.02.021, and that was provided by University of Otago.

HERE IS MY SCIENTIFIC REASONING FOR THE PHENOMENON:
When a person in a cold climate overeats, the unspent calories may end up as adipose tissues, which in reality is a form of storage of energy for ‘later’ use, besides providing thermal insulation against external chillness.
This is much analogous to plants saving their starch in their root tubers, such as potatoes and turnips.
The adipose tissues as such can accumulate in any person, irrespective of the age.
However, it may be a bit more significant in inactive people, such as the women in their 40’s, compared to youngsters who tend spend much of their energy in physical activities.
My 41-year study in the area of obesity reveals that it is CALCIUM accumulation within the cells of the SOFT tissues that makes a person overweight / obese.
In fertile women, the menstrual fluid removes substantial quantities of calcium at monthly intervals.
This process tends to keep their weight slightly LESSER immediately AFTER the menses, and slightly MORE a day before its onset.
Most women tend to enter their menopausal stage in their 40’s.
This would then prevent the regular elimination of the Ca excesses from the body, enhancing its accumulation and related weight increase.
If those women take Ca supplement, then their weight is bound to increase enormously.
In addition to the above phenomenon, two other factors that can contribute to body weight increase include HABITUAL UNDER-URINATION and DEFECATION of SLIMY FAECES.
Unwanted Ca excesses from within the body gets thrown out through urinations.
When one under-urinates (e.g., just thrice daily), those excesses tend to remain within the body, thus favouring its storage in the soft cells.
Likewise, when a person defecates slimy or watery faeces, the unabsorbed Ca remains in the faecal matter gets absorbed by the glandular cells in the colo-rectal region, thus contributing to body weight increase, and cancers there in some.

I hope my above-findings explain reasonably adequately the phenomenon that is responsible for the body weight increases in people.
