The psychology of dieting

Professor Jane Ogden (Professor at University of Surrey)
@Jane1Ogden
We are constantly bombarded by TV programmes and self help books offering a miracle cure for weight loss yet the world is getting heavier. We are therefore sold miracle diets but it is increasingly clear that diets don't work. This talk will look at why we eat, why we overeat and why dieting is so hard. It will look at what we can learn from those people who lose weight and keep it off and the chances of losing weight and keeping it off can be improved with some simple psychological take home tips.
