As healthcare professionals, we encounter overweight and obese patients in many settings. We don’t have to be experts to make an impact. Conversations of five minutes or less can contribute to changing the eating behaviors of our patients. People listen to their healthcare providers: Patients who are counseled to lose weight by healthcare professionals are three times more likely to try to do so than those who do not receive such counseling.

Weight management is a perpetual hot topic in scientific circles and the media. When it comes to the role of low-calorie sweeteners, research appears to be mixed. Because research about the impact of low- and no-calorie sweeteners on appetite and food intake frequently appears in the news, healthcare professionals must understand the research to make science-based recommendations that help consumers achieve or maintain a healthy weight. This webinar will review the latest science on low-calorie sweeteners and their impact on diet, appetite and weight management and how clinicians can translate this science into practical applications for helping consumers manage their weight and overall health appropriately and effectively.
It is such an accomplishment when people lose weight after a prescribed nutrition and exercise program. But what happens once that regimen ends?
