Myth Busters: Healthy Eating and Weight Management

Myth Busters: Healthy Eating and Weight Management

A workshop for those confused by ‘nutrition noise’ in the media

                                                   Thursday 12th January 2017 6.30-8.30pm

 

Do you know what ‘Healthy Eating’ looks like?

The media is full of healthy eating, diet, weight loss and super food stories, and many are just that… stories… based on anecdotes and advice from nutritionally unqualified people, with a high social media presence, rather than robust scientific study based evidence.   This has created so much nutrition noise; it’s difficult to know what is best for your health.

Target Audience

This workshop is aimed at adults who want the scientific evidence translated to practical everyday food related advice, and who may want weight maintenance advice after the festive season

Topics to be Covered

  • Healthy Eating
  • Weight Maintenance
  • Behaviour Change
  • Next steps… Action planning

The workshop will not take the place of an individual consultation but participants are welcome to book an individual consultation at another time.

The number of attendees is limited to ensure a highly interactive small group environment where participants will be free to ask questions. All participants will be asked to agree to respect the confidentiality of others attending the workshop.
