2013 Guidelines for the Management of Overweight and Obesity in Adults
Population-based surveys estimate 2 of every 3 U.S. adults are overweight or obese. Despite billions of dollars spent annually on weight loss diets, recidivism is high and long-term results are disappointing. This presentation reviews: 1) the brand new 2013 Guideline for the Management of Overweight and Obesity in Adults, and 2) the key recommendations of the Adult Weight Management Nutrition Practice Guideline published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Both of these evidence-based guides are written to aid clinicians when they furnish weight management nutrition therapy and counseling, so that, in the end, they can improve, and maintain, health outcomes for overweight and obese adults.
