Summary:

Obesity is a global health concern associated with a number of acute and chronic health problems. Losing a modest percentage of body weight can decrease risk for chronic diseases. Unfortunately, losing weight is not easy; keeping it off is even more difficult. To lose weight, a negative energy balance is needed, which the body interprets as a sign to increase food intake. This course will examine the complex nature of energy balance that is critical for successful weight loss and maintenance of that loss. It is crucial to understand the role of fat tissue and how it plays a role in determining hunger and satiety; the role of genetics in body fat distribution and body weight regulation; communication networks among the brain, hormones, peptides, organs, and tissues; gut microbes; and other components of the body involved in regulating hunger and weight.

Objectives:

The goal of this regulation of body weight continuing education program is to provide dietitians, health educators, physical therapists, and other healthcare professionals with information on the role of energy balance in obesity. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Define obesity, explain how to measure it, and list its potential health complications
  • Discuss the role of genetics in the regulation of body weight
  • Discuss the interactions of hormones, peptides, neurotransmitters, organs, and the brain in the regulation of energy balance and the roles they play in obesity
