Shake up your weight loss
From low-carb to high-fat, paleo to keto, there are thousands of diets out there, and if you haven’t tried one, you know someone who has. But what do you do when it feels like nothing is working, and you need to get the weight off – fast? Amanda Salis is here to help. Join her to hear about her research-driven strategy for fast weight-loss, the evidence that backs it up, and get some myths debunked along the way.
For Amanda Salis, weight loss and nutrition is a personal issue. After struggling with her own weight for years, she decided to take matters into her own hands and undertook a PhD to understand what processes in the brain contribute to hunger during dieting. Applying what she learned to her own weight, she managed to lose almost 30 kg and has kept it off since. Now working at the University of Sydney as a Professor of Obesity Research, Amanda is dedicated to helping other people with excess weight to attain and maintain a healthy weight, for life.
