(no subject)

I'm constantly fascinated by how the human body works. Of particular interest to me is the concept of body hacking - ways to modify your biochemistry and reactions for greater benefit and entire concept of cause and effect. So this story is of particular interest to me - the gist is that obesity is not what we thought it was (possibly) and explains why dieting simply does not work for many people. I'm just curious now as to whether or not the concept of phenotypes (edit: I meant Somatotype) will still be applicable or is it simply that everyone is the same basic body shape by default and is just altered by the effects of the theories listed in the article.
