All the animals ate without restraint. " Increasing only the fat content of a resistant rat's diet won't make the animal overeat or become obese. But feed it a high-fat, high-sugar diet, and it will grow just as fat as an obesity-prone rat on a high-calorie diet. Variety and ready availability further amplify overeating. Anthony Sclafani was a graduate student at the University of Chicago in the late 1960s when he started trying to understand what promoted excess consumption.

Once it's fried and layered with cheese, we're eating salt on fat on fat on sugar. Buffalo wings start with the fatty parts of a chicken, which get deep-fried. Then they're served with creamy or sweet dipping sauce that's heavily salted.
