Mindfulness-oriented weight management course in a tier 3/tier 4 obesity service

Hanson Petra , Halder Louise , Barber Thomas

Overeating contributes to obesity epidemic and has many causes. Evidence shows that problematic eating behaviours can be modified with mindfulness. In the UK the use of mindfulness in management of obesity has been studied only once before. We aimed to pilot a new weight management course that would improve patientsÂ’ skills and confidence in ability to lose weight, and reduce patient waiting time. The course covered mindful eating, compassion and self-esteem, managing rel...

Background: Small frequent meals are often recommended for weight loss, with supporting evidence often provided from studies in diabetes. Dietary meal content is also relevant, as high fat meals cause systemic inflammation via gut derived bacteria, endotoxin. As such, repeated meals may exacerbate this. In contrast, dietary induced thermogenesis, related to meal size, may reduce with small frequent meals.Aim: Therefore, the aim of this study was to compa...

Background: The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) called earlier this year for obesity to urgently be recognized as a disease, and warned that until this happens its prevalence is unlikely to be reduced. Obesity is associated with multiple comorbidities, including type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), hypertension (HT), and dyslipidemia. Bariatric surgery (BS) produces dramatic weight loss, with improvement of obesity associated comorbidities and decrease of overall mortality.<...

Eating more quickly heightens overall systemic exposure to glucose and NEFA in the post-prandial phase, irrespective of energy expenditure in obese women

Reddy Narendra , Peng Chen , Piya Milan K , Aftab Saboor A S , Campbell Alison , Hattersley John , Halder Louise , Harte Alison L , Randeva Harpal , Tripathi Gyanendra , McTernan Philip G , Kumar Sudhesh , Barber Thomas M

Background/aim: The global obesity epidemic has promoted a search for novel solutions. One approach is through modification of eating-related behaviours. Our aim was to explore the effects of meal duration on energy expenditure, appetite and excursions of molecules associated with insulin sensitivity in the post-prandial phase.Methods: Normoglycaemic, pre-menopausal, Caucasian obese women (n=8) were recruited from the Obesity clinic at Warwicksh...
