Recent hypnosis techniques with a rapid-induction phase ...

The high prevalence of pediatric overweight and obesity in the U.S. necessitates the development of efficacious, but cost-effective and easily disseminable interventions that improve and sustain better pediatric weight outcomes. Accumulated evidence finds initial and long-term efficacy of moderate-to-high intensity (>25 contact hours) family-based treatment (FBT) for elementary school-aged children, ...

Acute Effects of Fats on Satiety and Energy Needs

The influences of specific dietary fat sources on satiety, appetite and energy utilization remains unclear; evidence is lacking on whether responses vary according to acute intake. The researchers will use a controlled setting to determine whether the source of dietary fat is related to perceived satiety, satiety hormone responses, and ...
