Tammy BeasleyJoin Tammy Beasley, RDN, CEDRD-s, CSSD, LD for a webinar on When Life in the Fasting Lane Takes a Turn for the Worse: Intermittent Fasting and Eating Disorders on Tuesday, August 25th starting at 9:00 AM PT / 11:00 AM CT / 12:00 PM ET. We are offering 1 CE hour through APA, CDR, NASW, and NBCC for live attendance.

 

Abstract: Intermittent fasting is the “diet du jour” and continues to gain popularity. But life in the fasting lane can take a turn for the worse, especially for someone who is vulnerable to disordered eating behaviors. In this presentation, we will take a deeper dive into the current body of research that supports intermittent fasting, comparing and contrasting it with what research has told us about general “weight loss,” and intuitive eating. A focus on the short- and long-term effects of circadian rhythm and meal timing on metabolism and mood will help discern the principles of intermittent fasting that can trigger disordered eating behaviors. In conclusion, questions to help guide your discussion with your clients around their vulnerability to the risks of intermittent fasting will be discussed.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Compare the strengths and weaknesses of the body of research supporting intermittent fasting compared to general weight loss and intuitive eating.

2. Contrast the short- and long-term effects of circadian rhythm and meal timing on metabolism and mood. 3. Identify the principles of intermittent fasting that can trigger disordered eating behaviors and list two questions to discern a client’s vulnerability.
