It is just a treasure for those who love gaming. You will have a great opportunity to have a rest, to or to relieve stress without wasting time and money for traveling to Las Vegas. Don't forget to compare this site with your personal inquiries and wishes.

Nationally representative data show that over half of the population of the United States is trying to lose weight. Most of those people are dieting to do so. But does dieting, defined here as cutting calories in order to lose weight, actually work? This presentation will focus on the science of dieting, beginning with studies that examine the long-term effects of dieting and ending with science-based alternatives to dieting in order to achieve health. The presentation will cover research on reasons why dieting might fail, the important role of stress in dieting and unhealthy eating, and the negative effects of anti-fat bias and weight stigma.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate the scientific evidence of dieting success.
  • Identify key mechanisms through which dieting fails.
  • Understand the physical and psychological effects of weight stigma.
