I am growing my counseling practice, and before I recreate the wheel, I want to know if there are any evidenced-based, successful, weight management plans for dietitians to use currently on the market (or free of charge). My philosophy centers around eating real food and cooking from scratch as often as possible. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!
I am seeking advice from someone with experience in weight loss programs. I am working for an endovascular surgeon in his medical office, and he is wanting to start a weight loss program that I would be developing. I am curious about components/methods that you have found successful as well as pricing.
I am a fairly new dietitian and would like some advice on calculating calories. It seems that everyone I talk to calculates it differently. In my internship I learned to take the weight in kg (or adjusted body weight if the patient is over 125% of their IBW) and multiply it by 23-25 for weight loss, 25-30 for maintenance and 30-35 if the pt is underweight.

What advice do you give patients who want to try the ketogenic diet for weight loss?
Are there any resources-books, lectures or CEU's that you found helpful when looking into the ketogenic diet for weight loss? This woman I am counseling seems relatively active, is doing the ketogenic diet and is under her calories for the day, is obese, but is not losing weight.
Looking for anyone out there who has experience with IBT for Medicare patients? I have read many handouts and watched webinars, but I think talking to someone directly about how the process works, how it is implemented, challenges, suggestions, etc. would be most beneficial.
Is there anyone you know of? Is there a list serve?
I appreciate any information!
Interested in teaching materials to educate clients online and in person on weight management (loss/gain), diabetes, cholesterol, sodium, nutrition labels and other obstacles that result in unhealthy eating to provide during nutrition education. I have been a RD for a year and have nobody to work under or to show me what effectively has worked for me so I am trying to start a program at the YMCA
I'm a newly registered, licensed dietitian looking to obtain a certificate in adult weight management. I was hoping someone could give some insight regarding the certification process... I am unable to attend the certificate of training in adult weight management programs in person so I've been looking at purchasing the online/self-study module. I've viewed the information on cdrnet
I work in a non-clinical setting, clients are participating in a 12 week program which includes diet and exercise. Some clients are Morbidly Obese.We use Mifflin to estimate their calories, but it still seems that RMR is very high (2800 cals, ect). My question is, it it okay to go below RMR in a Morbid Obese client? Any guidelines or standards on this?
When making energy recommendations for elderly women, do you ever recommend less than 1200? I've heard that you should never go below 1200, but it feels strange recommending 1200 calories for both a 65" woman and a 55" woman. Do you recommend less for elderly women under 60"? If you have any sources, that would be greatly appreciated.
