Why is the obesity: the big truth, information different from what I may have previously been told about Obesity?

Unfortunately, several generations of people have been brought up to believe that Obesity is simply a result of lifestyle choices and that it can be easily remedied.

Obesity: The Big Truth refers to critical information from scientifically reliable sources to challenge the myths. We have included referenced information from peer-reviewed scientific journals and are providing the framework to encourage obesity experts to present and discuss the science, and the different treatment options.

Are the highlighted topics of the weight set point.set range theory, metabolic adaptation, and leptin and leptin resitance the only topics being discussed at the Obesity: The Big Truth events around Europe?

These are all important topics which will most likely be covered to some extent. But the topics included at each event vary according to some of the most prevalent myths and latest science the experts believe need to be addressed.

Why has it been necessary to launch this initiative at this time?

Obesity has become an increasingly talked-about subject, mainly as there has been a lot of publicity about new medications that have come onto the market. However, there are many healthcare professionals and people living with obesity who still have relatively little knowledge about Obesity as a chronic disease and how it can be best treated.
