Webinar: Helping Clients Make Lifestyle Changes That Get and Keep Pounds Off - What Works? (Part 2)
Weight management focuses significantly more attention on weight loss and not nearly enough on helping people who’ve lost weight keep lost pounds off. As dietitians we need to turn more of our attention to helping people minimize weight regain to maximize the health benefits.
In part two of this two-part webinar series, on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, from 2–3 PM EST, Hope Warshaw, MMSc, RD, CDE, BC-ADM, will review evidence from recent and long-term studies that demonstrates the value of weight loss and long term maintenance. Hope will share the cadre of successful strategies for weight maintenance accumulated from research studies and other expertise. She will also share insights gleaned from a panel discussion at the Today's Dietitian 2019 Spring Symposium in with several healthcare providers and their clients who have successfully kept lost pounds off.
After completing this continuing education course, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Detail the clinical benefits of minimal weight loss and maintenance of lost weight on prevention and/or delay of chronic diseases.
- Describe at least 5 key strategies from research studies for successful maintenance of lost weight.
- Identify 3 ways clients can evolve their clinical practices to better support people in their long-term efforts to keep lost weight off.
