Sponsored Webinar: Low-Carbohydrate Eating Patterns - Friend or Foe?
Low-carbohydrate eating has never been more popular but much confusion exists. Common questions include: What defines a low-carb eating pattern? What is the scientific evidence on the health effects of low-carb diets, particularly on weight loss and glycemic management? When are they most and least appropriate? What are the barriers for implementing a low-carb eating pattern? What low-carb trends do we see among consumers, and how has the marketplace responded?
This webinar discusses the research surrounding low-carbohydrate diets, common questions and patient considerations. Presentations include:
- Consumer Trends: Low-Carbohydrate Eating Patterns (Beth Nieman Hacker, MBA, Tate & Lyle)
- Science Behind Low-Carb Eating Patterns (William S. Yancy, Jr, MD, MHS, Duke University)
- A Practitioner’s Perspective (Megan Rossi, PhD, RD, King’s College London, UK)
Organized by the American Society for Nutrition in partnership with Tate & Lyle. Funded by Tate & Lyle.
- Summarize consumer views on low-carbohydrate eating patterns and how the market responds to such trends.
