In a recent survey, nearly 50% of Americans reported trying to lose weight within the past twelve months. Unfortunately, only 15% of those who lost weight kept it off. The importance of healthy weight management practices are highlighted by these statistics. In this webinar Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed will describe the mechanisms of hunger and satiety and how these understandings can be applied clinically as part of an effective weight management program.

The following learning objectives will be covered:

  • Review the underlying mechanisms that drive hunger and satiety and their influence on the brain
  • Understand the role of adipose tissue and the impact of fasting on these hunger hormones
  • Learn how to moderate hunger and food cravings with supplemental support
