PhD Project: Metabolic effects of whole grains and dietary fibre with focus on appetite and weight-loss.

If dietary response could be predicted and responders screened for, dietary guidelines could be tailored and more effective in the prevention of cardiometabolic disease than the current “one fit all approach”. In my PhD-project I’m conducting dietary trials with hypocaloric, high-fibre cereal diets to evaluate the impact of determinants such as glycaemic profile, gut microbiome and inflammation on appetite and weight-loss response to find new strategies for personalized diets.

About Sebastian

I did my Master’s in Human Nutrition at Stockholm University and Karolinska Institute with a one-year thesis project in Dunedin, New Zealand examining the role of whole grain processing on glycaemic control in type 2 diabetes. Besides my interest and main focus in public health, metabolic syndrome and personalized dietary strategies for obesity and diabetes type 2, I have an interest in sports nutrition and dietary strategies for enhanced performance.
