WELCOME TO OUR WORLD!
“When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.”
Here at MBM Research Group, we are driven by a single goal: to definitively answer the question of what we should eat to prevent and treat obesity. Our core research focus is the mass balance model (MBM) of obesity, by far the most advanced computational model to simulate body weight and fat mass fluctuations. Of course, we try to expand the clinical applications of our model(s) to as many diseases as possible, including - but certainly not limited to - diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Importantly, our recent simulations represent the beginning of a full-blooded paradigm shift in obesity and weight management research, as our findings convincingly demonstrate that nutrient mass is the true driving force behind body weight and fat mass fluctuations with energy intake having no effect or contribution to weight changes whatsoever. The immediate consequence of a such far-reaching finding is that feeding studies will become much more accurate and significantly less expensive as mass measurements are cheaper and do not suffer from all the problems that energy measurements do. Sometimes it just happens that the whole knowledge structure turns out to be flawed and – thus – has to be abandoned. The whole game needs to be changed.
Nevertheless, our aim is to educate, not dictate. In addition to scientific research, we intend to ensure that clinicians, leaders and policy makers stay informed on the latest innovations that will make the biggest impact on human health and disease.
Much has happened in the field of information in the past 40 years or so. Unfortunately, the cost of textbooks and other teaching material is still a key barrier that prevents many children from having access to the learning materials they need. Much of the “developing” world suffers from a paucity of information, resulting in marginalization and disadvantages. Thus, in addition to the posts targeted to our colleagues, our not-for-profit Facebook Page will provide easy-to-read information on the latest findings in the areas of nutrition and metabolism. In fact, we have already posted many (relatively) easy-to-read articles on mass balance model (MBM) and related issues. In the near future, we will publish articles in Spanish, Finnish and Swedish.
However, later we will specifically focus on languages used in the developing world to disseminate latest information to the students of developing areas of our planet.
Please be informed that we are currently looking for Press Officers who speak and write fluently Russian, Mandarin Chinese, Hindi, Standard Arabic, Indonesian or Bengali. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further details.
Our research project do not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors. However, we are looking for funding from reliable charitable organizations.
We do not need hype or noise; rather, we let the scientific data speak for themselves.

WHAT WE DO
Mathematical Modeling Feeding Trials Cooperation
With this research project, our ultimate goal is to develop state-of-the-art mathematical models that will describe, explain and predict body weight and fat mass fluctuations. Of course, we aim to expand the clinical applications of our model(s) to many other diseases, such as diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
With our mission always in mind, we strive to validate our mathematical models by conducting rigorously controlled feeding experiments in both humans and animals. Well-controlled randomized free-living feeding studies remain the gold standard when it comes to proving causality in the areas of nutrition and metabolism.
At MBM Research Group, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing the obesity epidemic. This is by no means an easy task, but through cooperation we believe we can significantly facilitate progress in this area. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with us today.
