Yoni Freedhoff, MD

From fad diets, to extremes of exercise, to being hungry, to shaming as a motivator, how society approaches weight management is rife with harmful myths. Take a tour of some of diet world's most pervasive and destructive myths followed by a tour of Boringville - those behaviours that while not sexy enough to sell millions of books or prop up a guru, are powerful enough to actually make a lasting impact on your and/or your patients health.

  • Recognize and identify some of the more pervasive myths supporting modern day dieting and weight management.
  • Briefly explore the science behind the recommendation of specific diets and their long-term impact on weight.
  • Consider the impact of actionable, but far less dramatic, approaches to improving lifestyle irrespective of weight.
