Child eating self-regulation: plausible, but probable an environment of plenty?
The development of appetite regulation during childhood reflects the complex and dynamic interaction of nature and nurture. It has been appreciated for the better part of a century that young children possess a capacity to self-regulate appetite in a manner that facilitates healthy growth. At the same time, numerous facets of children's eating environments have been shown to promote excessive intake and are considered "obesogenic." This presentation will highlight recent research on appetite regulation among young children. Evidence of genetic and social influences on eating will be used consider the extent to which expectations for child self-regulation of eating are plausible vs. probable given the environment of plenty in which the eating habits of today's children are developing.
The 2014 Annual Conference will be held June 28-July 1 at the Hilton Milwaukee Center, 509 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee. The room reservation link is now online here. The rate is $149/single or double occupancy. Keep in mind Milwaukee will host a large music festival, Summerfest, beginning June 25-July 6.

New York Daily News

Whether you lose or gain weight depends on weekdays
There are sleep cycles and there are also weight loss cycles. Almost everyone loses weight on weekdays and gains weight on weekends. What separates the slim from the heavy isn't how much more they gain on weekends. It's how much they lose during the weekdays. In this study, Dr. Brian Wansink from Cornell University, in collaboration with researchers from the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Tampere University of Technology, looks into the impact that the seven-days-a-week human cycle has on weight.
Better access to healthy foods is not enough to tackle obesity
