Registered dietitian nutritionists individualize nutrition interventions to provide effective, compassionate care for adults with overweight and obesity. In this session, two RDNs with practice and research expertise in adult overweight and obesity treatment will describe effective approaches for delivering tailored, client-centered nutrition interventions for adults with overweight or obesity. RDNs will describe pros and cons of different weight management approaches, current evidence-based recommendations for practice, and resources and tools for implementing overweight and obesity treatment interventions.
