9:00 – noon: Systematic Approaches to Obesity

Obesity is a multifactorial disease process. In this module, we will explore the systematic approaches to understanding and managing obesity, from recognizing patient’s barriers to implementing healthy lifestyles to the experience of the patient at the doctor’s office. We will examine multiple approaches to combating obesity centering around culinary medicine, including exercise, diabetes prevention programs, pharmaceuticals and cognitive behavioral therapy.

In this module, the physiological impact of digestion of different types of carbohydrates is examined, along with the role of certain carbohydrates in promoting satiety, regulating blood glucose and sustaining energy, with a further look into whole grains.
