Combating the Diet Culture: When Healthy Eating is Disordered
COMBATING THE DIET CULTURE: WHEN "HEALTHY" EATING IS DISORDERED
What is the latest diet craze your clients mentioned to you? Is it a fad diet reinvented, a new app that counts calories, or another way to lose weight quickly? Diets are everywhere, and each "new" diet is more about what you cannot eat than what you can. With high rates of documented obesity, there is a great focus on changing eating to be healthier and lose weight. Yet research has repeatedly shown that diets increase risk for disordered eating. When is "healthy" eating disordered? How can dietitians help clients to find an eating plan that works? In this one-hour webinar, the presenter will discuss trends in the diet culture and how we as dietitians can combat this culture to help clients develop a balanced relationship with food. In addition, case studies will be examined to apply principles discussed.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Identify aspects of the culture that affect eating attitudes and behaviors.


  • Explain how the field of dietetics can promote unhealthy dieting.


  • Define when "healthy" eating is actually disordered eating.


  • Understand counseling skills and methods to help clients eat well instead of dieting.


  • Apply learned principles to case study examples.
