10:30 am – 11:30 am Session 19 - How Not to Diet: Evidence-Based Weight Loss Michael Greger, MD 1 1 1 1

DESCRIPTION

What does the science show is the best way to lose weight? Dr. Greger has scoured the world’s scholarly literature and developed this new presentation based on the latest in cutting-edge research based on his new book How Not to Diet. He will touch on the 17 ingredients to the optimal weight loss diet and cover some of the 2 tricks and tweaks for fast-tracking weight loss, which include specific foods that can double as fat blockers and fat burners, starch blockers and appetite suppressants.

LEARNING 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 slowing that accompanies weight loss
