I just attended the recently concluded 24th Annual Convention of the Philippine Association for the Study of Obesity and Overweight held at the EDSA Shangri-La last August 31, 2018. This year’s theme was Fat Facts, Fads and Fallacies.
It was a jampacked event this year as many health professionals and weight loss enthusiasts attended the event. Friends from the weight loss industry were also there to help celebrate the gathering. I got to meet some of my colleagues and friends during the Convention.
The current president, Dr. Edgardo Tolentino, talked about the use of mindfulness on eating and reviewed some behavioral techniques in the approach to weight control.
Current products on weight control were also being given to be sampled.
A very productive event indeed!
