MONALISA hypothesis
As mentioned before, MONALISA stands for Most Obesity kNown Are Low In Sympathetic Activity. Our autonomic nerve system is composed of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves. Many obese people's sympathetic nerves work at a lower level.

When we are more active, our sympathetic nerves our also more active and we are less likely to gain weight. However, since we live in a world of convenience, we have to work harder to get enough movement. This situation causes our sympathetic nerves to become and as a result, our body uses less energy and we build up more excess energy as body fat. This is the theory behind the MONALISA hypothesis.

Please be careful and try to work more activity into your lifestyle.
more physical activity raises sympathetic nerve activity.
