hello!

it seems the key component of the diet that triggers weight gain and contributes to obesity is the carbohydrate part predominantly and not the protein or fat part, which is involved in insulin-related metabolic changes that add weight

given that orlistat is notorious for its lipase inhibition as an attempt to treat obesity and its effectiveness is definite, so would be a good idea to use instead or combined, oligosaccharidase inhibitors?

do you know if they have been developed and/or researched?

thanks!

There isn't a single component that triggers weight gain, it's an overall excess of energy - fats generally (although only slightly) contribute to fat gain moreso than carbohydrates do
