Over 165 QTLs spanning the entire genome (except the Y chromosome) have been mapped in animals (mainly mice) to date [22]. Many appear to exert rather modest effects on phenotype (as may be expected in a complex polygenic disorder) although some do appear to have more major effects. Following identification of QTLs in mice, loci of interest may be mapped to the homologous (syntenic) region in man and the region further tested for association with obesity in a human population. Thus, the many benefits of performing genetic studies in mice may be reaped whilst maintaining relevance to human populations.

Eating low-fat foods that contain substantially less energy than their full-fat equivalent can be one way to maintain the bulk of food in the diet while constraining energy intake. However, some food ranges that are low in fat have energy contents similar to their traditional equivalents, which is a result of the addition of large quantities of added sugars that help to maintain palatability. This emphasizes the importance of focusing on energy density and not just fat content as this type of low-fat, high-added-sugar food may lead to similar passive over-consumption as high-fat foods of similar energy density.
