According to a new bout of research, when your immune system is kicked into overdrive by inflammation which can lead to weight gain and make losing weight very difficult. Inflammation interferes with the hormone Leptin which controls metabolism and appetite, when weight increases so does leptin production, this tells the brain it needs to increase the metabolism and lower your appetite.
In heavier people this same message is somehow blocked and your brain is not told to increase the metabolism thus does not manage fat stores very well.
