HEALTH SCIENCE PUB presented by the Integrated Health Research Cluster. Working up an Appetite: Rethinking the Battle of the Bulge. Our wildly popular Science Pub Series has returned for a sixth incredible season! Enjoy lectures on scientific topics of general interest in our Arizona Room (main floor banquet room) over beer and snacks. The room opens at 5:00 PM and quite often is full by 6:00 PM. Avoid disappointment and come down early for dinner and a pint before the presentation which begins at 7:00 PM. This month's lecture will be presented by Dr. Totosy de Zepetnek, Assistant Professor of Kinesiology and Health Studies at the University of Regina. We live in a society obsessed with weight loss and this has significant health implications. Weight gain or loss is depends on the relationship between how much energy (i.e. food) is taken in and how much is expended through exercise or other activities. For too many of us we consume more energy than we expend and it gets stored as fat, or weight gain. And because of the health risks associated with that weight gain there is an increasing reliance on appetite suppressants rather than on trying to find a balance between our intake and our activity. The talk will focus on some of the effects of energy imbalance and how individuals can avoid the battle of the bulge. Dr. Totosy de Zepetnek (Assistant Professor of Kinesiology and Health Studies) does research on cardiovascular health and energy balance.
