Low-Carbohydrate Eating Patterns for Health-Friend or Foe? Low-carbohydrate eating has never been more popular, but much confusion exists. Common questions include the following:


* What defines a low-carbohydrate eating pattern?


* What is the scientific evidence on the health effects of low-carbohydrate diets, particularly on weight loss and glycemic management?


* When are they most and least appropriate?


* What are the barriers to implementing a low-carbohydrate eating pattern?


* What low-carbohydrate trends do we see among consumers, and how has the marketplace responded?



This 90-minute webinar was organized by the ASN in partnership with Tate & Lyle.
