As registered dietitians, we can be familiar with the literature about successful weight loss and maintenance, and experience ups and downs with our clients. In addition, there’s tremendous value in gaining candid insights from people who have walked down this path successfully. In this session, Hope Warshaw will provide a review of current research on what it takes to lose weight and keep maximal pounds off. Then, through a panel discussion of successful “losers” and the clinicians they’ve partnered with, Hope will help program participants gain inside insights into clients’ motivations and tactics for weight loss and keeping pounds off. She will also focus on how their clinicians successfully supported their clients in their efforts to adopt a healthier lifestyle and manage their weight.
After attending this session, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Detail clinical benefits of minimal weight loss and maintenance of lost weight on prevention and/or delay of chronic diseases.
- Delineate at least five key findings from research studies that promote and maximize successful maintenance of lost weight.
- From clients and their clinicians, identify four factors for successful weight maintenance post weight loss.
