Learn the LCHF dietary approach
More dietitians are offering low-carb diets to clients in response to growing evidence that higher levels of dietary carbohydrate may not be suitable for many individuals.
Clients with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes may be particularly good candidates for a lower-carbohydrate prescription.
This webinar presents an opportunity to learn the low-carb, healthy-fat (LCHF) dietary approach from experienced dietitians.
You'll gain valuable knowledge about client assessment, prescription and monitoring to promote safe and effective practice.
Feel informed and energised to incorporate LCHF into your practice.
