Some put on only fat. Some put on much more weight than others. All seemed to revert back to their normal weight when they went back to their normal diets. None of them were fat or obese to start with and all were young.
Putting on muscle but not fat is surprising.
Did the test reliably exclude:
- secret weight training?
- pre-existing conditions involving muscle wastage?
I have no idea how controlled the subjects were or what was published. It was in the UK so should be possible to track down the research. Found it.
