A sufficient and balanced maternal diet is critical to meet the nutritional demands of the developing fetus and to facilitate deposition of fat reserves for lactation. Multiple adaptations occur to meet these energy requirements, including reductions in energy expenditure and increases in maternal food intake. The central nervous system plays a vital role in the regulation of food intake and energy homeostasis and responds to multiple metabolic and nutrient cues, including those arising from the...

Objective null Across the world, it remains legal to discriminate against people because of their weight. Although US studies demonstrate public support for laws to prohibit weight discrimination, multinational research is scarce. The present study conducted a multinational comparison of support for legislative measures to address weight discrimination and bullying across six countries. null Methods null Participants were adults (n = 13,996) enrolled in an international weight-management program...

OBJECTIVE Health system data were assessed for how well they can estimate obesity prevalence in census tracts. METHODS Clinical visit data were available from two large health systems (Kaiser Permanente Washington and University of Washington Medicine) in King County, Washington, as were census tract-level obesity prevalence estimates from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). The health system data were geocoded to identify each patient's tract of residence, and the cross-sect...

OBJECTIVE The role of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in infant metabolism remains poorly understood, primarily because of the inherent limitation of positron emission tomography/computed tomography imaging to measure BAT, which is not suitable for infants. The aims of this method development study were to assess the feasibility, intra-rater reliability, interscan repeatability, and physiological relevance of measuring BAT in infants using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS A total of 10 nonse...

OBJECTIVE This study tested the hypothesis that greater weight variability (WV; measured as root mean square error [RMSE]) during the first year of life predicts weight gain at year two and greater WV during the second year of life predicts greater weight gain at year three. METHODS This was a prospective study using mother and offspring data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children. Infant z-BMI (BMI z score) and WV scores were calculated separately during years one and two. Mat...

Objective null The objective of this study is to assess the impact of a history of metabolic and bariatric surgery (MBS) on the clinical outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and severe obesity hospitalized for COVID-19. null Methods null Post-hoc analysis from the nationwide observational CORONADO study: patients with T2D and history of MBS were matched with patients without MBS for age, sex and body mass index (BMI) either at the time of MBS or on admission for COVID-19. The composit...

OBJECTIVE This secondary analysis examined physical activity (PA) changes and their prognostic significance among Latinx patients with obesity, with and without binge eating disorder (BED), who participated in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial testing the addition of orlistat to behavioral weight-loss (BWL) treatment in a "real-world" clinical setting. METHODS In this randomized controlled trial at a community mental health center serving economically disadvantaged Spanish-speaking-only Lat...

Objective null The Chinese government decisively imposed nationwide confinement in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the progression of obesity in children and adolescents in Changshu, China. null Methods null Based on the Health Promotion Program for Children and Adolescents (HPPCA), which is a prospective cross-sectional and school-based study, BMI assessed in seven consecutive years (2014 to 2020) among children and adolesce...

OBJECTIVE This study aimed to examine whether total, regional, and organ fat predicts bone marrow adipose tissue (BMAT) fat content and to explore whether BMAT fat content differs by sex among Latino youth. METHODS Latino youth (n = 86; age 13.6 [1.4] years, 62% male) with obesity (BMI percentile = 98.5% [1.2%]) underwent a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry scan to assess body composition and a magnetic resonance imaging scan to determine abdominal adiposity, liver fat, and vertebral BMAT fat con...

Childhood obesity has been rising in all world regions - 2019 estimates were that 158 million children aged 5-19 are living with obesity, of whom many live in LMICs1 . Yet there has been limited to no progress to halt the rise in more than 20 years and this number is projected to increase to 254 million by 20301 . NCD Child, a global multi-stakeholder coalition focused on the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in children, is concerned with the rising rates of obesity duri...
