Summary:

The Learning Process:

Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 1 hour.

This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, dietitians and health and wellness coaches.

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Objectives:
1.    Name three dietary components that may be considered characteristic of an optimal weight loss diet.
2.    Detail the randomized, controlled study that, without caloric restriction or an exercise component, led to the greatest reported weight loss at both 6 and 12 months.
3.    Name the foods that can act as fat blockers, starch blockers, appetite suppressants, and that can counter the metabolic lowing that accompanies weight loss.

Requirements for successful completion: Participants will be awarded contact hours commensurate with participation after completion of the post-test with a score of 70% or higher.

Recorded live at the 2020 International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.
