I learned a lot about the benefits of time-restricted eating with this CPE program! Before taking this course, I mistakenly believed time-restricted eating was simply about calorie restriction. A better understanding of the research and the metabolic benefits of time-restricted eating will allow us to recommend and implement programs with our patients. It helps to know that adherence is better as this is a huge barrier to success with dietary interventions.

Lori Stevens, RD, LDN
Time-restricted eating and the variations of this eating pattern is a very timely topic and more research is being completed to see how this may influence chronic disease and weight loss. This course provides an evidence-based overview of the topic and then allows for a better understanding for the practitioner of how this can be applied with patient care.
- Time-Restricted Eating, Energy Intake, and Dietary Quality Self-Study course
Stacey Phillips, MS, RD
This CPE program focuses on a topic that has been considered a bit more controversial. The nutrition professional would greatly benefit from understanding this form of eating behavior to build trust and better equip their patients or clients with practical information that they want to know more about.
