Susan Allen Hosts: Dr. Yael Joffe, PhD RD FACN
Listen Now! Free Recording Access Expires June 21!
As a health practitioner, you have likely observed that certain of your clients gain weight easily and have great difficulty in losing weight, what we regard as weight loss resistance. The idea that weight is managed by balancing the equation of calories in and calories out has little bearing on the truth we see in practice.
This webinar explores the contribution of genetics, not only to the susceptibility of becoming overweight and obese but also in how individuals respond differently to different weight management interventions and exercise programs.
You will also have a chance to learn about the many different genetic factors that contribute to obesity such as sleep, behavior, appetite, and satiety, and exercise responsiveness. Understanding your client’s susceptibility and responsiveness will enable you to develop personalized and successful weight management interventions.
All registrants receive limited-time access to the recording after the fact.
