In this course, we’ll look at the facts and misconceptions around obesity and discuss key physiological and psychological concepts around the brain’s control of appetite and body weight. We’ll consider the biological and environmental pressures that make it easy to gain weight (and hard to lose it!). Most importantly, we'll give you the opportunity to reflect on your own knowledge and assumptions around the subject.

Covers the neurological and psychological aspects which lead to obesity and often overlooked.
I loved how they talk about obesity from global view and epidemic, not just as individuals.
THIS WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AND IT WILL HELP ME DEAL WITH OBESITY WHICH IS A PROBLEM TO MANY.
Helped me a lot in understanding not just physiological but psychological aspects too.
very much informative , engaging but not enough money to get paid for the certificate
Why wasn't the world's sedentary lifestyle not discussed as a cause of weight gain?
Excellent. The order of content, the stacking of logic, the professor. Thank you!
