Debunking Fad Diet Claims: How to Help Overweight and Obese Clients
and Patients Choose the Safest, Most Effective Weight-Loss Program
•Lisa Andrews, MED, RD, LD, CEO Sound Bites Nutrition
As a health professional, you know first-hand just how serious a problem obesity has become in the U.S. The latest figures show that almost 70% of adults are overweight or obese. And the number of children in the same situation is on the rise as well.
Fad diets have been around for years, but lately it seems there are more of them than ever before. And with the number of books and celebrity endorsements—not to mention what’s on the Internet—pushing the legitimacy of fad diet claims, it’s difficult to convince clients that they don’t work. Especially when what people want is what most fad diets offer: a quick and easy fix to their weight problems.
To steer your clients, employees, and students toward safe and effective weight loss, and position yourself as the trusted expert they choose to work with, you have to be up-to-date on both the latest fad diet claims as well as the diets that can be successful. But with so much information coming out so quickly, how can you possibly keep up? What evidence do clients need to see or hear to prove to them that fad diets don’t work? And how do you convince them stick with a plan that will bring them success?
Get answers to these questions and more when you register to attend “Debunking Fad Diet Claims: How to Help Overweight and Obese Clients and Patients Choose the Safest, Most Effective Weight-Loss Program” onThursday, July 13, 2017.

You’ll also learn about several proven methods of weight control that do work, and what you can do to convince individual clients that one of these is a better way to go.

Judy’s passion for cooking began with helping her grandmother make raisin oatmeal for breakfast. From there she earned her first food service job at 15, was accepted to the world famous Culinary Institute of America at 18 (where she graduated second in her class), and went on to the Fachschule Richemont in Switzerland where she focused on pastry arts and baking. But after learning that the quality of a croissant directly varies with how much butter it has, Judy sought to challenge herself by coming up with recipes that were as healthy as they were tasty.
Judy received The Culinary Institute of America’s Pro Chef II certification, the American Culinary Federation Bronze Medal, Gold Medal, and ACF Chef of the Year. Her enthusiasm for eating nutritiously and deliciously leads her to constantly innovate and use the latest in nutritional science to guide her creativity, from putting new twists on fajitas to adapting Italian brownies to include ingredients like toasted nuts and cooked honey. Judy’s publishing company, Food and Health Communications, is dedicated to her vision that everyone can make food that tastes as good as it is for you.
