The best way to debunk a misleading diet myth is to create a new story based on facts When a diet myth presents the wrong message to our clients, there is little point in simply refuting it. The best way to present the facts is to gift-wrap them by creating a new story. Stories have more power of persuasion than raw facts. Create a new story to debunk a misleading diet myth and watch how your story will catch on, and help clients to change their eating habits for the better. The presentation will cover: Why people believe diet myths and often give them more credibility than facts Some misleading diet myths, and starting points for creating new stories to replace them How stories can be used as a platform to make crucial points about nutrition Sources for stories, including personal experience and history Watching this presentation and completing the assessment can contribute towards assessable Continuing Professional Development points.
