Overcoming the Barriers to Long-term Weight Loss Success

7 June 2021 at 12:00-1:00pm (Canberra/Sydney/Melbourne time)

This webinar is brought to you by the Health Behaviour & Weight Management Interest Group (2021). 

This webinar will be delivered by Dr. Nick Fuller, a globally recognised obesity expert from the University of Sydney and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. 

Patient referrals for weight management are common. However, long-term weight loss success is challenging. Understanding and explaining the science behind weight loss to patients helps better retain patients long-term, due to improved treatment efficacy. 

The e-talk will cover key drivers of the obesity epidemic, the reasons we fail on our dieting attempts, the effect of weight loss on an individual's metabolism, appetite hormone signaling system, thyroid and adrenal gland function, and how to overcome the body's usual response to weight loss. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understanding the body's 'set point' 
  • Regulation of body weight
  • Physiological responses to weight loss
  • Strategies for long-term weight loss success
