About the webinar:

Can nuts be successfully incorporated into a healthy diet while supporting weight management? In this webinar, Professor Alison Coates will crack open the latest science on kilojoule consumption vs kilojoule absorption from nuts. Alison will dive into the surprising benefits of enjoying nuts for weight management, debunking concerns about their energy density, and provide an update on the ever-expanding list of health benefits of nut consumption. We’ll then be joined by dietitian and managing director of Sprout Food Group, Themis Chryssidis, for a delicious culinary adventure demonstrating creative ways dietitians can motivate their clients to eat more of these nutty nutrition superstars.
