4 IS THERE A MAJOR GENE FOR OBESITY? 17 Adoption studies Adoption studies rely on the assumption that differences between adopted children and their adoptive parents/siblings are due to genetic differences and differences between them and their biological families are due to environmental influences. However, adoption studies are complicated by problems relating to ascertainment of the biological father (false paternity being found in some 8% of individuals in many studies), the effects of selective or late placement of the child and the inherent inability of such studies to assess gene–environment interactions.

Eating low-fat foods that contain substantially less energy than their full-fat equivalent can be one way to maintain the bulk of food in the diet while constraining energy intake. However, some food ranges that are low in fat have energy contents similar to their traditional equivalents, which is a result of the addition of large quantities of added sugars that help to maintain palatability. This emphasizes the importance of focusing on energy density and not just fat content as this type of low-fat, high-added-sugar food may lead to similar passive over-consumption as high-fat foods of similar energy density.
