Intermittent Fasting
Fasting dates back several centuries as a form of religious practice, spiritual renew or simply due to the lack of resources. Current day fasting has been touted as strategy to achieve weight loss and improve metabolic function. As we all know, caloric deficit achieved through restricted intake will likely lead to weight loss in many individuals, but can the strategies of intermittent fasting provide additional health benefit?

Join functional medicine dietitian Liz DeJulius for a comprehensive overview of the various forms of fasting and how research supports fasting interventions for both weight loss and longevity. Participants will also learn the concept of fast mimicking diets and how this low-caloric FAST may provide beneficial metabolic change. Once viewers have gained this knowledge, they will be given information and resources for implementing these recommendations in practice.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand the definition of fasting and different fasting approaches.

  • Learn the potential health benefits of fasting.

  • Gather insight on how to provide appropriate fasting recommendations to clients/patients.

  • Familiarize themselves with the concept of fast-mimicking diets.

  • Identify populations where fasting is contraindicated.
