Open University – Obesity

This high quality interactive module looks at the science behind obesity, examining the dietary, physiological and genetic contributons. Its quite a meaty module (it says it takes 15 hours, but this is probably an overestimate for most), but it may require a few sittings. Good for health care professionals interested in this field, and scientists interested in the pathophysiology. A lot of information about calculations of energy expenditure and nutrient intake.
