This webinar will focus on the role of appetite in obesity management with insights from experts in research, clinical practice and the patient experience. Prof Corby Martin will present findings from his group’s weight loss and calorie restriction studies, focusing on changes in appetite and appetite-related constructs (e.g., food cravings, disinhibition, dietary restraint), and energy expenditure during energy restriction. He will also provide a brief overview of their efforts to predict weight regain based on these factors, and offer a critical appraisal of the ability to predict weight regain. Dr David Macklin is a Canadian family physician working at the interface of appetite science and obesity treatment. In his talk he will discuss motivational constructs within a comprehensive behavioural program, translated from the Canadian 2020 weight management guidelines, to be delivered by obesity clinic staff to persons living with obesity. Lizzie Brown is an active member of Obesity UK and has taken part in one of the ECPO Patient Lounge events.
