A Detailed Look at the Energy Unit that Rules Our Diets

(Recorded Thursday, September 15 2016 3:00 PM ET. CPE Credit for this webinar is valid for one year from the recording date.)

Counting Calories

We all know about calories: many dieters spend a lot of time and effort in their day-to-day lives counting calories. But how well do you really know this common energy unit? Join us to learn about the science behind calories, and the “real life” implications of this science. We’ll discuss the latest research around calories, including how unique environmental and physiological factors influence the way individuals metabolize calories and how this impacts our ability to truly know how many calories we consume from different foods.

You will be able to:

  • Report on recent research on calories and metabolism
  • Understand the impact of calorie research on guidance around reaching/maintaining an ideal body weight
  • Examine how calories as listed on a food label may not accurately define how calories are metabolized
  • Share science and education gained with patients, clients, consumers, colleagues, students and others to increase their knowledge and encourage greater future understanding of this important topic

This is a one-hour, live webinar for Registered Dietitians and Dietetic Technicians, Registered. This webinar is approved for one CPE credit. Meets learning codes 4030, 2020, and 5370.
