Set-point theory

Set-point theory refers to the weight a person maintains and returns to after dieting or overfeeding. Set-point varies with age and activity levels, and may be raised if the person is subject to chronic deprivation. Set point theory can be brought into play to determine a healthy target weight for full weight restoration.
