In this video blog, Dr Sue discusses just a few of the many highlights from this week’s Obesity Society meeting in Orlando, Florida.

Some of the highlights include:

1.  A focus on learning more about the genetics of obesity;

2.  Food Reward: Do differences in how we desire, and how we enjoy, food, affect our risk of weight gain?

3.  Lifestyle interventions:  a focus on building environments that are conducive to more exercise and healthy eating

4.  Medications: nothing new currently, but many interesting possibilities on the horizon…

5.  Bariatric surgery: more data on longterm success rates, and novel technologies being studied.
