Rethinking energy balance and healthy eating: Sorting fact from fiction

Presented by OSU Retirement Association

Tuesday, March 5, 2013 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

The news is full of nutrition advice on the supplements you should take, the foods you should or shouldn’t eat, and how to maintain a healthy weight.  Do we all need to eat the same way for good health? Why do people lose different amounts of weight on the same diet and exercise plan? Why do some people stay slim? Numerous biological and behavioral factors regulate and influence energy balance and body weight. When one side of the energy balance equation is changed a simultaneous change occurs on the other side. Thus, energy balance is dynamic and constantly changing in response to a myriad of factors.  How do we manage this teeter-totter effect? What weight loss approaches have research evidence to back their recommendations? What is healthy eating and how can you eat in today’s food environment? This talk will sort the fact from the fiction around some of your nutrition issues.

Everyone is welcome to attend this free presentation.
