12 Complex interactions between carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism underlie the 13 body's remarkable ability to adapt to a variety of diets. But any imbalances between the 14 intake and utilization rates of these macronutrients will result in changes of body weight 15 and composition. Here, I present the first computational model that simulates how diet 16 perturbations result in adaptations of fuel selection and energy expenditure that predict 17 body weight and composition changes in…

The Dynamics of Human Body Weight Change
It is shown that a mathematical model of the macronutrient flux balances can capture the long-term dynamics of human weight change and that the generic dynamic behavior of body composition for a clamped diet can be divided into two classes.
The effects of body composition on setpoint based weight loss
The setpoint model of human metabolic adaption to diet-induced weight loss has been introduced and examined considering a constant energy density in the body weight lost. Body composition analysis

A mathematical model was constructed that used the measured dietary macronutrient intake during semistarvation and refeeding as model inputs and computed whole body energy expenditure, de novo lipogenesis, and gluconeogenesis as well as turnover and oxidation of carbohydrate, fat, and protein.
Changes in macronutrient balance during over- and underfeeding assessed by 12-d continuous whole-body calorimetry.
A clear oxidative hierarchy for the macronutrients is shown, dominated by the need to maintain carbohydrate balance, which induces inappropriate counterregulatory alterations in fat oxidation during energy surplus.
Greater than predicted decrease in energy expenditure during exercise after body weight loss in obese men.
Observations suggest that net exercise EE falls below predicted values after body weight loss in obese men, and this greater than predicted decrease in net exerciseEE was associated with changes in leptin.

Using previously reported data on body composition and REE in women and the energy cost of tissue deposition, mathematical models are used to predict the theoretical effect of a persistent reduction in energy expenditure on long-term weight gain, assuming no adaptation in energy intake.
Energy and water metabolism, body composition, and hormonal changes induced by 42 days of enforced inactivity and simulated weightlessness.
During prolonged HDBR no relevant modifications in water metabolism were triggered, and body weight alone does not accurately reflect the subject's energy state, and energy balance alone could not explain the body weight loss, which involves a transient metabolic stress.
Energy-intake restriction and diet-composition effects on energy expenditure in men.
Substrate use reflected diet composition and energy-balance status independent of changes in body composition, and there was some evidence of an increase in the efficiency of energy use of body stores after weight loss.

Environmental factors such as food diversity, palatability, and availability can be expected to raise the range within which glycogen levels are habitually maintained, which restrains fat oxidation, until expansion of the fat mass is sufficient to promote fat oxidation to a rate commensurate with dietary fat intake.
Energy intake, physical activity and body weight: a simulation model.
A model is described which simulates changes in FM and FFM using EI and physical activity (PA) as input variables and was validated with three recent studies measuring EE at a fixed EI during an interval with energy restriction, overfeeding and exercise training respectively.
