The Power of Protein: Separating Hype from Reality


Date: Tuesday, May 6, 2014 | Time: 2:00 AM - 3:15 PM EDT | Register

 

The consumer is bombarded with nutrition information on a daily basis—with protein as a hot issue this past year. Information is often confusing and conflicting and consumers do not understand how to apply the knowledge to their own diets to improve their health. This webinar will outline the most substantiated health effects of protein, specifically on appetite, weight management, sarcopenia and athletic performance. The importance of consuming balanced amounts of protein throughout the day and the influence of a protein-rich breakfast on adolescents’ health will also be covered. Emerging research on protein’s effects on cognition and in prevention of diabetes will be addressed. The session will end with practical points on how the nutrition educator can translate the research into application to meet the needs of individual clients.

Speakers:
Heather Leidy, PhD, Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, University of Missouri
Nancy R. Rodriguez, PhD, RD, FACSM, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Departments of Kinesiology and Allied Health, University of Connecticut, Storrs

 

Learning Objectives
1. Outline the multiple health benefits of protein, beyond muscle building (e.g. satiety/weight mgmt., healthy aging, blood sugar control,
2. Compare the IOM’s recommended range of protein intake (10-35cal %) to the RDA minimum intake (0.8g/kg/day) and identify specific demographic groups that may benefit from the higher levels.
3. Design diets that include evenly-distributed protein levels throughout the day from a variety of sources, starting with breakfast.
4. Identify foods that are high-quality sources of protein.

Attendees will earn 1 CPEs from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

Aging and Muscle Loss: Too Young to Worry? Think Again!

 

Thursday, June 19, 2014 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM EDT | Register

 

Although many people consider sarcopenia—the degenerative loss of muscle mass, function and strength—with old age, it’s actually a progressive syndrome that begins much earlier in life. In fact, sarcopenia is characterized by approximately 3-8% reduction in lean muscle mass per decade after 30 years of age. This webinar will focus on the importance of early interventions to maintain muscle mass and strength through nutrition and exercise. Protein research, including protein quality, timing and usage will be discussed; and practical advice, including effective exercises to prevent muscle loss with aging will be shared. Session sponsored by the National Dairy Council.

Speakers:
Hope Barkoukis, PhD, RD, LD, Associate Professor and Interim Chair, Department of Nutrition in the School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University
Susan Kundrat, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN, Clinical Assistant Professor and Nutritional Sciences B.S. Program Director, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Moderator: Matt Pikosky, PhD, RD, Vice President, Nutrition Marketing & Affairs, National Dairy Council

Learning Objectives
• Reposition sarcopenia in the minds of health professionals from a condition that impacts older Americans to a progressive syndrome that can start much earlier in life.
• Leverage the latest research on sarcopenia and muscle maintenance to elevate the importance of proper exercise and protein intake among middle-aged Americans.
• Review the gradual domino-effect decline in health that accompanies muscle loss: beginning with the loss of strength, through the loss of physical function and declines in performing activities of daily living and quality of life, to an increased risk of mortality.
• Identify the best dietary and exercise approaches for middle-aged Americans to adopt in order to maintain muscle and reduce their risk for sarcopenia.

Cost: SNEB Members attend webinars free as a benefit of membership. Non-member cost is $25. Attendees will earn 1 CPE from CDR
