Weighing In: High Quality Protein for Weight Management


Wednesday, Sep 23, 2015 at 1:00 PM EDT | Register
A growing body of research demonstrates the benefits of higher protein diets (combined with negative energy balance) in weight management, for satiety, reduced energy intake, fat loss and muscle preservation. Consumers need help identifying foods with higher quality protein so that they may incorporate these choices into their diets to meet healthier lifestyle goals.
This webinar will focus on the benefits of following a higher protein diet for weight management. An overview of the current body of science on protein and weight management will be reviewed, and practical tips and ideas to help bring the research to life will be shared. Special attention will be placed on differences in protein quality, recommendations for protein quantity, and the importance of timing protein intake properly to maximize the benefits for weight management.
Learning Objectives:
- Translate the latest science examining the role of protein on weight management and its related benefits (satiety, fat loss and/or muscle preservation).
- Educate peers and the public on the importance of protein timing and distribution as well as high quality, higher protein diets for maintaining a healthy weight and an active lifestyle over time.
- Identify and apply practical solutions to help patients/clients determine appropriate protein quantity and methods for optimizing timing of protein intake, and advise them on how the integration of protein can help support the benefits of regular physical activity.
- Build patient tips and menu plans focused on improving satiety between meals and throughout the day, recommending quantities and optimal timing for protein consumption.
