Prevention of weight (re)gain

Satellite ECO 2009

Noordwijkerhout, May 4-6 2009


During the Satellite at the European Congress on Obesity in 2009 organised by Diogenes, new insights and results on weight (re)gain have been presented by Diogenes researchers and external experts, including:

- the relative efficacy of different diets varying in protein content and carbohydrate Glycaemic Index in preventing weight gain, regain and co-morbidities
- Genomics-based predictors of weight variation, and biomarkers of nutritional status
- Epidemiological identification of key dietary factors influencing development of obesity and risk of co-morbidities, across Europe
- A new set of psycho/behavioural tools to identify predictors of weight (re)gain
- An obesity risk and behavioural advice screening tool
- Identification of novel food ingredients systems, which induce satiety or satiation while remaining in the preferred sensory range
