Perils and Promises of Dieting Conference

Weight Concern hosted an exciting half day conference on behalf of TEMPEST (Temptations to Eat Moderated by Personal and Environmental Self-regulatory Tools), a European Commission-funded project on healthy eating.

 

The conference focused on the current obesity epidemic, the ethical debate surrounding obesity and how we might better equip people with the skills they need to resist temptations in the current food environment.
