Course Description

CEU Course Description

Time-restricted feeding or intermittent fasting (IF) and caloric restriction are increasingly popular dietary approaches used for weight loss, improvement of coronary heart disease (CHD) risk indicators, and overall health.  The goals of this CEU course are to investigate the effects of modified IF and caloric restriction protocols including solid versus liquid diet on body weight, body composition- muscle mass and visceral fat, as well as CHD risk. The subjects observed include athletes, normal weight and obese populations.

CEU Course Objectives

1.  Compare the circulating levels of inflammatory markers among viscerally obese women relative to subcutaneously obese women.

2.  Define intermittent fasting and differentiate it from caloric restriction.

3.  Estimate how much LDL cholesterol levels are decreased for every kg of body weight lost.

4.  List three things that time-restricted feeding was shown to reduce.

5.  Rank the benefits demonstrated between the IFCR liquid diet group and the IFCR food-based diet group.

6.  Summarize which alternate day fasting outcome was shown for both normal weight and overweight subjects.
