Any articles on obesity and ff?

I'm mobile and I'm bored. The 1-oz/hr rule has me thinking about the FF/obesity correlation and I was wondering if anyone could post links to the studies that have looked at this. My hypothesis has to do with the stomach getting stretched in order to fake in more calories because they need more formula (unlike bm which changes with age). And our species hasn't evolved to compensate for that and my thinking is maybe something in the brains "full registry" is off as a result. Just thinking and having a hard time finding the studies from my phone. Thanks

Are you talking about obesity in adults or children or infants?

Either, both. Not looking to argue with anyone. Just trying to see what has been studied so far.

Gotcha. I haven't really looked into any of that but I have a feeling that obesity in older children and adults is more related to lifestyle habits growing up and our society being visual eaters than anything else, but that's just another theory :) I'd be interested to know, too, though. Because a lot of breastfeeding families tend to be more health-conscious anyway, it might be difficult to determine if it's the bfing or the overall lifestyle. I'm sure there are a lot better studies about infants/babies though
