Two additional models are discussed – the general intake model and the dual intervention point model – that address the issue of how body fatness is controlled and might offer better ways to understand how body weight is controlled.

Older adults and patients in need of nutritional support: review of current treatment options and factors influencing nutritional intake.
The product factors identified here suggest that especially small volume, energy and nutrient dense ONS can be effective to improve nutritional intake.
Stress and eating: the effects of ego-threat and cognitive demand on food intake in restrained and emotional eaters
A positive association between reaction time and subsequent intake in all conditions for high restraint/low emotional eaters provided support for the limited capacity hypothesis, and enhanced intake in emotional eater is proposed to relate to escape from self-awareness.

The FTO variant that confers a predisposition to obesity does not appear to be involved in the regulation of energy expenditure but may have a role in the control of food intake and food choice, suggesting a link to a hyperphagic phenotype or a preference for energy-dense foods.
Emotions and eating. Self-reported and experimentally induced changes in food intake under stress
It is suggested that the type and variety of foods offered influences the link between stress and eating in laboratory settings, with a view to informing potential interventions for stress-related eating.
The specificity of satiety: The influence of foods of different macronutrient content on the development of satiety
Differential effects of the preloads were observed in subjective ratings of hunger, fullness, preferences and subsequent food intake, but there was no indication that satiety was macronutrient-specific.
