The Obesogen Effect: Why we Eat Less and Exercise More but Still Struggle to Lose Weight (19 CPEU / CEU)
The Obesogen Effect Continuing Education CE course

Best Seller! We all know about the skyrocketing incidence of obesity. This research-based look at obesogens sheds much-needed light on why we are struggling with obesity and overweight, and why it is so difficult for so many to lose weight.

Obesogens are chemical and environmental factors that disrupt our hormonal systems, alter how we create and store fat, and change how we respond to dietary choices.

  • Overview of how obesogens work, and where they are found.
  • The interplay between epigenetics and obesogens, and their impact on health, chronic disease and weight.
  • How inflammation impacts the fat cell and endocrine system in general.
  • How obesogens from yesteryear can continue to wreak havoc over today's (and tomorrow's) generation.
  • A comprehensive plan to help you and your clients reduce exposure to common obesogens.
You'll be astounded at what you learn about our ongoing exposure to obesogens and why RDs are on the front lines in educating our clients (and ourselves) about the potential impact of them.

"The Obesogen Effect is an AMAZING book, filled with thought-provoking concepts, ideas that will help you make sense of why the world is getting bigger. It is time to let go of the oversimplified idea that it is calories in vs calories out. This science-based book was a surprising page-turner that weaves together biochemistry, nutrition, and activism and will keep you wanting to learn more about how our bodies are adapting to the modern world."
--Megrette Fletcher, MEd, RD, CDE, Concord, NH
