ACSM's 2017 Health & Fitness Summit Online CEC: Promising or Misleading? Popular Issues and Strategies used in the Wide World

By Laura Kruskall

So many individuals chase the latest headline in hopes of gaining an edge in their weight management. So many of these approaches are not evidence based, but appear to be the quick fix or easy solution. While many of these strategies may not be harmful, they also may not be efficacious. This session will evaluate the science behind some of the popular issues in weight management and translate that information when communicating with your clients.

Learning Objectives

• Describe how the macronutrient content of the diet impacts weight loss

• Describe why energy balance is dynamic with weight loss and identify what is needed to address this with clients

• Explain the physiology as to why obesity is an inflammatory disease

• Summarize the evidence for the role of probiotics, non-nutritive sweeteners, and various forms of carbohydrate in weight loss and management
