Obesity, dyslipidemia, and hypertension are significant challenges to public health and impact a growing number of Americans. Weight loss and dietary changes are effective in preventing CVD and DMII and reducing cardiometabolic complications, but can be difficult for many people. Growing evidence supports the use of timed fasting to promote weight loss and reduce these complications. Join us as we discuss a recent study that shows promising data regarding a 10-hour feeding window and improved CV markers.

Diet! Diet! Who’s Got the Best Diet? - Frankly Speaking EP 64

71% of adults in the United States are overweight or obese. To tackle this problem, primary care providers must stay up to date on the best evidence for addressing overweight and obese status in their patients. The DIETFITS Randomized Clinical Trial offers direction for nutritional advice in this important and serious public health concern. Guest: Kenneth Peterson, PhD, FNP-BC

71% of adults in the United States are overweight or obese. The impact the medical community is making on reducing high rates of overweight and obesity is less than optimal. Primary care providers (PCPs) bear witness to this staggering statistic on a daily basis and are in a unique position to address this problem. To tackle this problem PCPs must be up to date on best evidence for addressing overweight and obese status in their patients. What seems simple might not be the case. As clinical evidence for best practice in treating overweight and obese patients grows, which approach is considered best. With limited time for patient encounters and higher patient volumes, what health counseling, patient education or behavioral health strategies will work best. With a variety of diets available for patients to choose, which one is preferred. The DIETFITS Randomized Clinical Trial offers direction for nutritional advice in this important and serious public health concern.
