Sir: We thank the editors for the opportunity to respond to the letter by Sharpe and colleagues. We would like to start by stating that we are in complete agreement with them that, theoretically, increasing energy expenditure is important in the management of weight gain, whether induced by antipsychotics or not. Furthermore, on the basis of studies in non–psychiatrically ill populations, increased energy expenditure might be predicted to be even more important in the maintenance of weight loss.1
