Join Us for an Exclusive Webinar Presentation - What RDs Need to Know About Intermittent Fasting - Wednesday, January 18, 2017, from 2-3 PM EST - Presented by Jo Lichten, PhD, RDN
Voluntary abstinence of food and drink (intermittent fasting) has been practiced by many cultures around the world for millennia. Client and patient interest in intermittent fasting has increased as recent popular press publications have begun promoting a variety of fasting regimes for weight control, amelioration of diseases and disorders, healthier aging, and mental health. Do they work? Is fasting safe? Can it lead to disordered eating? Should they be part of our dietary recommendations to our clients? And, for what specific issues?

In this program, Dr. Jo® (PhD nutritionist, registered dietitian, and author of REBOOT: How to Power Up Your Energy, Focus, and Productivity) shares the research behind the phenomenon of intermittent fasting, describes its origins, and details the most popular consumer publications on fasting.
