Detailed Description:
Many obese people have had several successful weight losses, however very few can maintain the weight loss over a longer period (e.g. one year) Therefore, we want to investigate the metabolic response and the importance for maintenance of weight loss in obese people, who lost at least 7, 5 % body weight by low calorie diet followed by 52 weeks of diet weight maintenance with or without supplement of GLP-1.
