Upcoming Events at CNCPosted: Mar 14 in Clinical Nutrition Center News by Staff
Have you attended one of Dr. Lazarus’s free classes yet? These have been a real hit! Dr. Lazarus will teach you why weight management is so difficult and arm you with the best tool to keep weight off – knowledge and understanding. He does classes nearly every week. Call the clinic for the most current schedule. Current topics include:
1. Understanding weight management: learn the best evidence-based tools for weight loss, and gain an understanding into why maintaining weight loss is such a challenge.
2. Eat More Exercise Less: If eating less and exercising more is NOT in fact the best way to keep weight off, is it possible that we should do the opposite? Learn about the body fat-mass set point and why many commonly held beliefs are flat-out wrong. This class will open your mind to a new model of chronic weight management.
3. SUGAR! Sugar is everywhere! Learn about what sugar is, types of sugar, other sweeteners, and recommendations regarding sugar and carbohydrates in your diet.
4. Weight Loss Medications: Did you know that we now have 8 FDA-approved weight loss medications? Learn the differences between the older and newer medications and how to pick the best option – complete with sample patient case discussions.
