Obesity and its comorbidities are a global problem. The classic view about the imbalance in what we eat and what we burn is obsolete and needs to be reviewed. Based on the complex network of the body’s metabolism, metabolites have become an essential part of exploring metabolic health and weight. Increasing evidence provides information about the role of a wide range of metabolites in homeostasis, especially, but not only, those from adipose tissue and gut microbiota. Rapid weight variation (increasing as well as decreasing) implies a loss in homeostasis, and the causes are diverse, not only arising from an imbalance. Multiple aspects are implied, with a key role played by adipose tissue and emerging evidence about the implication of gut microbiota. This Special Issue of Metabolites, "Metabolic Health and Weight," will be dedicated to any aspect related to weight maintenance and homeostasis and the implication of metabolites. The topics that will be covered by this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the identification of metabolites with biological and/or clinical relevance in obesity and its comorbidities, with a special interest in adipose tissue metabolites and metabolites derived from gut microbiota. Weight variations (weight gain and especially weight loss interventions) and their implications for the weight management and metabolic health are particularly of interest. Manuscripts dealing with other pertinent challenging issues are also highly desired.
