“Eat less, move more” is the key to weight loss, right? Well, research is showing that it might not be that simple. Obesity can be the result of more than simple caloric surplus. Join this session to hear more about the biology of obesity, including the many factors that influence appetite regulation and metabolism. Learn about current guidelines related to the diagnosis and treatment of obesity as well as why, as a chronic illness, it deserves attention from your health benefits and wellness programs. Discuss how willpower is not the only key to a healthy weight—and how spreading this knowledge lessens the stigma of obesity.
