Dr Barbara Fielding talks about her research on the metabolism of fatty acids.

Obesity continues to have a major impact on health care services in the UK. Dr Barbara Fielding believes that nutritional advice should be based on a thorough understanding of metabolic responses to food ingestion, and that it is important to investigate the metabolism of dietary fat after both single and multiple meals. By tracing fat atoms from meals into the blood, Dr Barbara Fielding's research into individual metabolic responses to food ingestion may lead to targeted, customised, and more effective nutritional advice for obese and overweight patients.
