Summary:

Programs intended to prevent or reduce childhood obesity may be harmful to teens by increasing the stigma associated with obesity and fueling pressures to engage in unsafe weight control behaviors. Such dieting behaviors predict significant weight gain over time and may contribute to disordered eating patterns. In contrast, a non-diet approach promotes reconnection with internally directed hunger and satiety cues to facilitate eating competence, being active for energy and fun, and acceptance of the size and weight that result naturally from a health-supportive lifestyle. This course includes information health care professionals and fitness experts will need to shift from using a traditional, weight-centered model to a health-promoting, weight-neutral model for teens.

Objectives:

The goal of this course is to provide the information that healthcare professionals and fitness experts will need to shift away from using a traditional, weight-based model when working with teens to a body-positive and weight-neutral model of health and well-being, also known as a non-diet approach. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe normal physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development of adolescents
  • Explain the forces that influence how teenagers feel about themselves, including media, parents, family, teachers, coaches, and other influential people
  • Define body image and identify three consequences of poor body image
  • Describe how eating disorders and dieting behaviors are related
  • Describe what it means to be a competent eater
  • Describe tips for effective communication with teens
  • List at least five ways that parents, teachers, coaches, friends, and relatives can support positive eating and activity behaviors in adolescents
  • Describe the consequences of caffeine, energy drinks, nicotine, and sugar abuse
  • Explain how eating patterns and foods (carbohydrate, protein, and fat) influence appetite and metabolism
  • List five reasons why carbohydrate is important in adolescent eating patterns and five benefits of eating breakfast
  • Describe how natural hunger, appetite, and satiety signals function
  • Contrast internal and external appetite cues and emotional and physical hunger
  • List 10 reasons to give up dieting and other forms of restrictive eating patterns
  • Describe and list five benefits of conscious eating and mindful eating
  • Name and refute three myths about the nutrition needs of teenage athletes

Overall, great course. I love the addition of Satter--she is my hero. This course made me tear up at points--the philosophy of teaching children to trust their bodies and not forcing food upon them or berating them for what they eat is so important.
