Does Calorie Intake Affect Body Weight

Some evidence suggests that the link between calorie intake and weight is inconclusive.

Many fat people eat the same or less than thin and normal weight people. The Healthy Eating Index, the nation's report card on how Americans are eating, compiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, found little or no correlation between weight and caloric intake. Those with BMIs ("body mass index," a measure of weight relative to height currently used to categorize size) under 20 ("ideal" figures in the media) have similar calorie intakes as those greater than 30 (considered obese), as do people at all the BMIs in between.

Multiple researchers, using a variety of methodologies, in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and the Journal of Applied Behavioral Analysis have failed to find any meaningful or replicable differences in the caloric intake or eating patterns of the obese compared to the non-obese to explain obesity.
