In this course, we’ll look at the facts and misconceptions around obesity and discuss key physiological and psychological concepts around the brain’s control of appetite and body weight. We’ll consider the biological and environmental pressures that make it easy to gain weight (and hard to lose it!). Most importantly, we'll give you the opportunity to reflect on your own knowledge and assumptions around the subject.

TOP REVIEWS FROM UNDERSTANDING OBESITY
Helped me a lot in understanding not just physiological but psychological aspects too.
Very helpful to understand some of the underlying factors that may be contributing to obesity beyond the basics of calories in/calories expended, and macronutrients.
Fantastic! Well laid out and insightful. Can't wait for another Level or Specialization to be added for this course.
Updated introduction and understanding of this popular topic in health. Worth to take time to learn not only for health promoter but those want to help friends and family members on this.
