Lecture will examine how physical exercise affects weight control

A Loughborough University academic will be giving a lecture on campus later this month about the relationship between physical activity and weight control.

The lecture will be given by Dr David Stensel who will provide clear information and guidance about the role physical activity can play in how people manage their weight.

Dr Stensel and Dr James King, from the Leicester-Loughborough Diet, Physical Activity & Lifestyle Biomedical Research Unit, will then answer any questions from the audience on the subject.

Dr Stensel will cover many issues in the lecture including:

  • What is the difference between physical activity and exercise?
  • Is physical activity better than diet for weight control?
  • Will physical activity increase appetite and food intake?
  • Is long term weight loss possible with physical activity?
  • Do individuals vary in their response to physical activity?
  • What is the best type of physical activity for weight loss?

The talk will take place at 7pm on Wednesday, July 23 at the theatre in the Clyde Williams building.

It will last for about 40 minutes, and refreshments will be available to all at the start of the event.

Anyone wishing to attend should email: a.stanley@lboro.ac.uk to book a seat.

The Leicester-Loughborough Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity Biomedical Research Unit is a partnership between University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, Loughborough University and the University of Leicester.
