EVENT: The science behind energy restriction and contemporary weight loss programmes

The Leicester-Loughborough Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity Biomedical Research Unit has announced its first public lecture for 2017.

The first of this year’s public lectures is taking place on 8 March 2017 at Loughborough University. The lecture will be presented by Dr David Clayton, Teaching Fellow in Sport and Exercise Nutrition at Loughborough University.

Dr David Clayton’s research interests revolve around the study of obesity and the development of lifestyle interventions to help combat this epidemic. In particular, David has focused on how the appetite regulatory system responds to short periods of food restriction and exercise. Appetite is considered one of the major barriers to weight loss. David’s research aims to develop novel dietary and exercise strategies that can assist with appetite regulation and achieve successful long-term weight loss and maintenance.

The lecture will take place in U0.05 ground floor of Brockington Building on the Loughborough University campus, starting at 6.25pm.
