(Book, 297 pgs and Study Guide with 1 Reporting Form, 24 pgs.) This innovative CPE program explores 10 non-traditional factors--air-conditioning, drugs, pollution, suburban sprawl, crime, toxic food, microbes, stress, food additives, and sleep debt--which may be contributing to the world-wide obesity epidemic. This fast-paced analysis includes novel ideas that will enable you to help your clients and patients manage their weight and reduce related diseases. Upon completion of this CPE program you will be better able to:

  • Deduce techniques in which individual obesogens disrupt normal mechanisms of homeostasis and lead the client to a metabolism which encourages weight gain and related diseases.
  • Integrate clients' needs with dynamic plans and proposed interventions to guide them in achieving permanent and healthy weight management.
  • Frame individual as well as community-based solutions which may alleviate the growing obesity burden in our societies by confronting novel aspects of this multifactorial problem.
  • Encourage broad-based and disruptive thinking among individuals, corporations, communities and policy makers who are stakeholders in obesity outcomes.
