DescriptionAn important contributor to weight gain among young women is postpartum weight retention; however, interventions aimed at promoting weight loss among post-partum women have generally been unsuccessful. This presentation will include an overview of a recently funded translational research project designed to evaluate whether associations among dietary consumption of saturated fat, fat deposition and weight loss observed in mice, can be observed in human subjects during pregnancy and the postpartum period.
