SBS Doctoral Student Attends International Conference on Obesity
Stephanie A. Lee, SBS third year doctoral student, had the opportunity to present a research poster on Thursday, November 2 at the Obesity Week conference in Washington, DC under the mentorship of Dr. Steve Anton. The review poster was titled “Flipping the Metabolic Switch: Understanding and Applying the Health Benefits of Fasting.” The paper was published in Obesity in October. The project identified clinical trials which examined the effects of intermittent fasting regimens on changes in body composition in overweight individuals. Two types of regimens were studied: time restricted feeding and alternate day modified fasting.
