Low-carbohydrate eating has never been more popular but much confusion exists. Common questions include: What defines a low-carb eating pattern? What is the scientific evidence on the health effects of low-carb diets, particularly on weight loss and glycemic management? When are they most and least appropriate? What are the barriers for implementing a low-carb eating pattern?  What low-carb trends do we see among consumers, and how has the marketplace responded?

Please join us for a webinar to discuss the research surrounding low-carbohydrate diets, common questions and patient considerations.

Organized by the American Society for Nutrition in partnership with Tate & Lyle.  Funded by Tate & Lyle.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this program, attendees will be able to:

  1. Summarize consumer views on low-carbohydrate eating patterns and how the market responds to such trends.
  2. Discuss the latest scientific evidence on how these eating patterns impact health, particularly weight loss and glycemic management.
  3. Describe practical considerations of low-carb eating patterns including potential benefits and limitations.
