Current Evidence and Clinical Recommendations on the Effects of Low-Carbohydrate and Very-Low-Carbohydrate (including Ketogenic) Diets for the Management of Body Weight and other Cardiometabolic Risk Factors

Speakers: Carol Kirkpatrick, PhD, MPH, RDN, CLS, FNLA and Susan J. Vannucci, PhD, RDN

June 22, 2020
12:00 - 1:00 pm CDT

Low-carbohydrate (CHO) diets have been a strategy used primarily for weight loss for many years, and have recently had a resurgence in popularity, especially ketogenic diets. Ketogenic diets are very-low-carbohydrate (VLCHO) diets, originally developed to treat children with intractable epilepsy in the 1920s but are currently promoted for weight loss, type 2 diabetes (T2D) management, and fitness to the general population. Many health professionals lack an in depth of knowledge about the physiological effects of low-CHO and ketogenic diets. It is essential to understand the biochemical and physiological basis of energy metabolism and the roles of both carbohydrate and fat/ketone bodies as fuels for both body and brain. Because of the increasing popularity of CHO-restricted diets, including ketogenic diets, for weight loss and T2D management, a National Lipid Association (NLA) Nutrition and Lifestyle Task Force reviewed the current scientific evidence to examine the effects of low-CHO and VLCHO, including ketogenic, diets on weight loss, dyslipidemia, and other cardiometabolic risk factors, and developed a scientific statement to provide guidance for practicing clinicians on the use of these diets in clinical practice. This webinar will review the origins and metabolic basis of the ketogenic diet, the physiological effects of CHO-restricted diets, including ketogenic diets, and the key recommendations of the NLA Scientific Statement on Low-CHO and Very-Low-CHO (including Ketogenic) Diets to provide guidance for practicing clinicians on the use of these diets in clinical practice.

CPEU: 1.0

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the origin of the ketogenic diet in the context of childhood epilepsy and its current adaptation to various disease states.
  2. Differentiate between metabolic pathways of energy metabolism with glucose and ketone bodies as fuels.
  3. Discuss the key features and requirements of keto-adaptation and how they relate to the normal population.
  4. Discuss the evidence for the effects of low-carbohydrate diets on weight and other cardiometabolic risk factors.
  5. Identify key recommendations of the National Lipid Association Scientific Statement for low-carbohydrate and very-low-carbohydrate dietary patterns.
  6. Apply the key recommendations to clinical practice when counseling patients on the use of low-carbohydrate and very-low-carbohydrate dietary patterns.

The Potential Role of Medical Nutrition Therapy as a Treatment for Acne
Speaker: Jennifer Burris PhD, RD, CNSC, CSSD, CDE, CSG

June 25, 2020
12:00 – 1:00 pm CDT

Acne is a widespread and complex chronic skin disease and may influence quality of life.  Despite acne’s high prevalence, comparatively little is understood on the potential role of medical nutrition therapy in acne treatment.  Interestingly, patients with acne have a growing interest in helping to manage their disease through diet.  Recently, the number of studies investigating the relationship between diet and acne has increased and research suggests that medical nutrition therapy may become an important adjunct treatment to current dermatology management.  However, several questions and concerns remain.  This session is an overview of the relationship between diet and acne designed to inform attendees on the history and research surrounding the diet-acne connection and the potential role of medical nutrition therapy in aggravating, preventing, and treating acne. The information presented in this session will help dietetic professionals understand the existing evidence and disseminate key findings to promote patient wellness.

CPEU: 1.0
CPE Level:  2

Learning Objectives

  1. After presentation, attendees will understand the relationship between medical nutrition therapy and acne.
  2. After presentation, attendees will recognize the dietary patterns and foods that may influence or exacerbate acne.
  3. After presentation, attendees will understand how to apply some lifestyle interventions into practice for patients with acne.

Unscrambling the Dietary Cholesterol Confusion

Speaker: Kevin C. Maki, PhD, CLS

March 31, 2020
1:00 - 2:00 pm CST

Despite decades of research, the associations between dietary cholesterol consumption and risks for cardiovascular disease and mortality remain controversial. Adding to this controversy are the confusing recommendations in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The Guidelines state that cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern for overconsumption, but also recommend that individuals should consume as little dietary cholesterol as possible while following a healthy eating pattern.

2019 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease: Part 1, Lifestyle and Behavioral Factors – An Important Role for Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists

Speaker: Penny Kris-Etherton, PhD, RDN, FNLA

February 5th, 2020
2:00 - 3:00 pm CST

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death globally. In the U.S. approximately 1 in 3 deaths are due to CVD. From about 1900 until 2010, the total number of Americans dying from CVD decreased. From 2011 to 2014, deaths from CVD increased. More recent evidence has shown that Americans are dying of heart disease and stroke at rising rates in middle age (45-64 years) mainly due to increases in risk factors (overweight/obesity, high blood pressure, glucose and lipids) that are affected by poor lifestyle habits (eg, diet).

The 2019 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Primary Prevention of CVD: Part 1, Lifestyle and Behavioral Factors incorporates existing guidelines, statements and consensus reports into a comprehensive resource for patients, health care professionals and public health officials. The report makes recommendations for the prevention of CVD with healthy lifestyle behaviors (nutrition, physical activity, weight management and tobacco use) and treatment factors (eg, risk assessment, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, diabetes and aspirin use). This webinar will describe the recommendations for lifestyle and behavioral factors. The level of evidence for all recommendations will be presented.

Nutraceuticals for Lowering LDL-C: A Review of the Evidence

Note: CPE credits are not available.

The global nutraceutical market (including both functional foods and dietary supplements) is expected to reach $578.23 billion by 2025, and a search for "cholesterol-lowering supplements" on an online shopping site yields over 600 results. Patients are seeking out natural methods of treating hypercholesterolemia, and dietitians must be equipped to support them with evidence-based recommendations. While not intended to replace pharmacological therapy, many nutraceuticals can help achieve treatment targets, particularly in patients with mild to moderate lipid elevations, statin-intolerant patients, and patients on pharmacological treatment but not quite at goal. This webinar will review the evidence behind common LDL-lowering nutraceuticals, focusing on those with well-designed studies to demonstrate their efficacy. Upon completion, you will be able to identify nutraceuticals to consider, either alone or in conjunction with pharmaceuticals, in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia, along with dosing information, possible side effects, and anticipated LDL-C improvements.

1-2-3 Steps to Storytelling for Nutrition Communications and Counseling

Speaker: Jean Storlie, MS, RD

Hosted live on May 21, 2020

Stories awaken the senses, convey emotional insights, and leave listeners pondering new truths. Neuroscience shows that the brain releases a hormone associated with empathy and trust in response to character-driven narratives. But many people think, "I don't have any stories to tell." This session can solve that challenge for you. Participants will learn how to tell stories that capture the hearts and minds of their audiences—patients, clients, employees, consumers, or business partners. Both natural or wanna-be storytellers can learn how to create stories of human struggle and triumph that leave the listener pondering new truths. This session will help dietitians find and polish story gems that will enhance their interpersonal counseling relationships and leadership impact. Participants will learn a three-step process for storytelling: 1) find story gems, 2) develop plot and meaning, and 3) polish with salient details.
