Is There A Set Point For Body Weight?

The two articles in Resources below are an excellent review of the still unsettled question: Is there a set point for body weight?

The lead author in both articles is Manfred J Müller. Although both are good articles, I recommend reading only Resource (2) as it is more current and more detailed.
