While we regularly post lengthy discussions on Obesity Panacea, there are many research updates, news stories, videos, etc. in the field of obesity, physical activity and nutrition that we come across on a daily basis that never grace the pages of the blog. Most of these mini-stories we share with our followers on Twitter, and we encourage those of you with active Twitter accounts to communicate with us there to get real-time updates of all the stuff we are discussing (Follow Peter and/or Follow Travis). For those of you who shy away from Twitter, enjoy below the best mini-stories that we came across during the prior week along with links to the original source so that you can follow the full story.
- Can adding a salad *reduce* the number of calories people perceive in a meal? (Feedback Solutions for Obesity)
- In Defense of Science Blogs (yes again) (Speakeasy Science)
- Eating, Stress, Reward, and Obesity (Neurotic Physiology)
- More evidence that directly measuring sedentary behaviour is the way to go (JNRBM)
- I’ve been fortunate to do several media interviews in the past couple weeks related to my PhD work in sedentary physiology and the new Canadian Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines. Most of it will be a recap to regular readers of Obesity Panacea, but you can read a nice review of sedentary physiology by Alex Hutchinson of the Globe and Mail here, listen to my interview with CBC Radio’s Ontario Morning here, and see my live-chat with CBC’s LiveRightNow campaign here.
Have a great weekend!
