Today we have Part 3 in our 4 part series on obesity prevention with Universite Laval obesity researcher Angelo Tremblay (Part 1, which focused on the relationship between sleep and obesity, can be found here. Part 2, discussing the role of mental work in the development of obesity, can be found here).
In today’s episode Dr Tremblay discusses his experience creating healthy school lunches, as well as his misgivings about the role that the demonization of obesity may play in the development of unhealthy food-related behaviours. It’s worth noting that this section of the presentation focuses more on his experience with recent nutrition-related projects than on any particular nutrition-related panacea for obesity. It’s still a fascinating talk, just don’t expect any revelations about any revolutionary new diet plans.
As with the previous presentations, the presentation can be listened to as a typical audio-only podcast, or it can be viewed as a webinar with powerpoint slides. This week’s presentation is approximately 10 minutes, so it should be easy digestible during the lunch-hour or mid-afternoon break.
