The mission of the Stanford Center for Clinical Research (SCCR) includes offering educational resources, training, and support for investigators and research staff.  We have invited the research dietitian at Stanford Prevention Research Center, Dalia Perelman, RD, to provide you with an exploration into the weight management. Losing weight continues to be a great challenge, and for those who succeed, maintaining that loss is even more difficult. During this presentation, we will discuss some of the ways researchers are looking into this and the findings from examining the results from a yearlong weight loss study.”

The Course Objectives include:

  • Is cutting calories enough to achieve weight loss?
  • Does the quality of the diet matter?
  • What is Respiratory Quotient and what is its relationship to weight loss?
  • What are the different variables affecting short term (6 months) versus long term (12 months) weight loss?
