The "War on Obesity" is having a lot of casualties, and we need to make
peace; blaming and shaming is not helpful. We often preach that weight loss is
simple: just eat less and exercise more, but we all know that it is much more
complicated than that.
In this webinar, you'll learn about the evidence surrounding both
environmental and genetic causes of obesity. You'll discover how to assist
patients to set appropriate goals (related to behavior rather than weight), then
identify and break barriers. Additionally, you will walk away with a strategy
for designing a positive support system to assist patients in achieving goals.
By using a focus on healthy behavior rather than weight or BMI, the "war on
obesity" can end peacefully.
The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to understand the
genetic as well as environmental factors associated with weight and design a
plan to help people improve health using a positive approach (without judgment,
blame or shame.)
Learning ObjectivesAt the end of this presentation, participants will
be able to:
- Identify both environmental and genetic causes of obesity
- Describe how to assist patients to set appropriate goals (related to
behavior rather than weight), then identify and break barriers
- Discuss how to design a positive support system to assist patients in
