Almost every week it seems there’s a story in the news telling us about food and nutrition, and what we should eat to be healthy and avoid being overweight. But very often this week’s message contradicts what we heard only last week. In this podcast, weight loss scientist Associate Professor Amanda Salis speaks to our host Dr Chris Neff about the challenge of eating well in a world of confusing advice. Amanda is a senior research leader at the University of Sydney’s Boden Institute of Obesity, Nutrition, Exercise and Eating Disorders based at the Charles Perkins Centre. Amanda studied in Australia before she went to the University of Geneva, in Switzerland, where she studied for her PhD. When she returned to Australia in 1998 she worked at The Garvan Institute for Medical Research and then took up her role at the University of Sydney. Today, she leads a research team that is unraveling the science of how our brains affect hunger, emotions and body weight. She leads clinical weight loss trials aimed at helping people to attain and maintain an optimum body weight. She has a long and distinguished record of academic publishing and is also the author of two books about weight management for the general public.
