Notes:

Once obesity has become established, it cant be cured by eliminating factors which brought it on. The elimination of factors which are clearly hastening the course of the disorder may slow down its progress or even halt it, but they can never correct it. Thus a discussion of the various ways in which obesity can become established is useful from a preventative point of view, but it has no bearing on the treatment of the established condition.
