Speaker: Éric Doucet, PhD, University of Ottawa

Obesity is an extremely resilient condition. Body weight loss is most challenging and recidivism is rampant. In fact, dietary intervention meant to produce weight loss trigger a number of somewhat persistent adaptations. Collectively, these alterations increase the drive to eat and decrease energy output. The presentation will be focused on the effects of dietary induced weight loss on appetite and energy expenditure, and on how these changes most likely create a scenario where weight regain is facilitated.

Learning Objectives

  1. Gain knowledge on the effects of different dietary approaches on the outcomes of weight loss programs;
  2. Understand the interplay between energy expenditure and energy intake in overall body weight regulation;
  3. Understand how changes in body energy impact the regulation of energy intake and expenditure;
  4. Appreciate the complexities of weight maintenance after weight loss from an energy balance regulation standpoint.
