The link below goes to a video following a British medical journalist along on his investigation of weight loss techniques verified to work by science.

I found the segment on item 4 to be particularly interesting as laments about slow metabolisms are quite common. A British celebrity who has been overweight all of her life despite exercising and "eating healthy" volunteered to keep a video and a written journal of what she ate. The clinicians also gave her "doubly labeled water" to drink, water that contained isotopes which would allow the clinicians tell how many calories she ate and how many calories she expended.

The clinicians discovered that the British celebrity did not have a slow metabolism, but a very average one......she could burn up to 2000 calories a day. The clinicians also discovered she grossly underestimated her caloric intake despite the food diaries. In other words she remained overweight most of her life, despite trying to lose weight, because she ate more than she thought she was eating.
