Wellness Speaker Series – Are Your Genes to Blame When Your Jeans Don’t Fit?

June 09, 2021 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm | Webinar Only

It is clear that the cause of obesity is a result of eating more than you burn. It is physics. What is more complicated to understand is why some people eat more than others? Giles Yeo PhD, from the University of Cambridge Metabolic Research Labs, will present how differences in our genetic make-up mean that some of us are more hungry all the time and eat more than others. In contrast to the prevailing view, obesity is not a choice. People who are obese are not bad or lazy; they are fighting their biology.
