  • How do wepreventobesityin 2011?
    • By counteracting the impact of obesogenicenvironmentalfactors
    • By promotingadequatesleep
    • By increasing the physicalwork/cognitive effort ratio
    • By investing in nutrition competence and healthyfoodavailability
    • By promotinghealthyfood-relatedbehaviours
    • By investing in preventivepharmacology!!!
  • Changes in time (min/week) spentbetween 1981 to 1997 on activities by U.S. childrenaged 6 to 8 (A) and 9 to 12 (B) years

  • Mental work and energyintake in Laval Universitystudents
  • Impact of mental work on energyintake
    • 15 femalestudentsatuniversity
    • 2 tasks: read an article and write an abstract of 350 words or rest
    • 45 minutes for eachtask
    • Ad libitum buffet after the task
    • Anthropometricmeasurements, energyexpenditure, heart rate, blood pressure, dailyfoodintake, analogvisualscales, TFEQ, STAI

  • Short-termeffects of exercise of differentintensities and of KBW on relative energyintake
    Relative energyintake = differencebetween ad libitum energyintakeaftereachtask and energyexpenditure of the taskabove RMR
    Chaput and Tremblay, Physiol. Behav. 90: 66-72, 2007.
  • Methods
    Repeated measures/within-subjects design.
    3 conditions: 1) resting in a sitting position, 2) reading-writing and 3) performing a comprehensive battery of computerized tests.
    Conditions randomly assigned to subjects.
    45 minutes for each condition.
    Blood sampling at every 8 minutes.
    Ad libitum buffet after each condition.
  • Mental workload quantification

  • INFLUENCE OF A SPORT-STUDIES PROGRAM ON BODY WEIGHT, PHSICAL FITNESS AND ACADEMIC SUCCESS
    Description of the regular program:
    Four 45-min (instead of 7) periods of class attendance per day
    Two hours per day for homework
    Hockey theoretical teaching for 30 to 90 min per day
    Physical activity (training on ice) for at least 90 min/day
  • Body mass index and physical fitness in studentsparticipating in the regular sport-studies program at the beginning (Stage 1) and the end (Stage 3) of the academicyear
    Values are means. * Significantdifferencebetween stages: p < 0.05
    AdaptedfromPérusse-Lachance et al. Unpublished data.
  • Academicresults in studentsparticipating in the regular sport-studies program at the beginning (Stage 1) and the end (Stage 3) of the academicyear
    Values are means of the differencebetween the individual mark and the mean value of a reference group not involved in the program.
    AdaptedfromPérusse-Lachance et al. Unpublished data.
  • Quick get-together
    A research group at Laval University in Quebec, Canada, holdsitsweekly meetings on the run. "Our directorbelieveswecanaccomplish more during a 45-minute running meeting because of fewer distractions and a more relaxed state of mind," says Mélanie Jacqmain, a Laval researcher. "Its an excellent way to combine work and exercise." And by the way, the group’s focus area is the prevention and treatment of obesity.
