About the webinar:

Can lower carb diets effectively manage body weight? Do they help to control appetite? And can they improve blood glucose and cholesterol levels? With the large rise in low-carb, high-protein foods on supermarket shelves, these are some of the questions patients and clients may bring to dietetic consultation rooms. In this webinar, Dr Pennie Taylor and dietitian Nick Wray will arm you with the latest science on low-carb eating to answer these questions in a helpful, evidence-based way. Dr Taylor will update you on the latest low-carb market trends, cover the plethora of health claims on low-carb products and discuss how such foods may be integrated into a healthy dietary pattern. Nick will then explore how these foods can be adapted into clinical practice in specific patient scenarios.
