Are there different types of lapses from dietary prescriptions?: Implications for outcomes in behavioral obesity treatments

Stephanie P. Goldstein, PhD

Dietary lapses are specific instances of nonadherence from a prescribed weight control diet. Lapses are extremely common and, until this point, have been considered a normal part of any weight loss attempt. However, recent research shows that lapses, even small ones, can have serious consequences for long-term weight loss outcomes. This webinar covers novel research on dietary lapses and begins to explore potential evidence-based interventions for reducing lapses and improving weight outcomes. Participants will leave the webinar better informed on dietary lapses and how best to prevent, manage and reverse them in clinical practice.

Preventing Metabolic Adaptation During Weight Loss


Todd A. Miller, Ph.D. CSCS*D, TSAC-F, FNSCA 

Stephanie Mull, MS, RD, CSSD, CSCS

Standard interventions for weight loss include dietary calorie restriction and an increase in cardiovascular exercise but do not typically include a strategy for preserving metabolic rate during weight loss. Using weight as the primary measurement tool for success and compliance increases the risk of metabolic adaptation since changes in lean body mass are rarely monitored. This session will present methods of assessment and tools for more accurately tracking results of a weight loss effort and will highlight the synergistic impact of resistance training and macronutrient balance on resting metabolic rate. Participants will acquire knowledge and practical recommendations that will better inform the care provided to their patients and clients embarking on weight loss regimens.
