The Expertise You Require in the Layperson’s Language
You Can Understand and Apply

Despite the vast amount and variety of foods available, you might not be getting the best nutrition. In fact, just 1 in 10 adults meets the federal fruit or vegetable recommendations, according to a new study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In addition, more than 2 in 3 adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Yet many don’t realize that they have a weight problem, and so they ignore health advice and warnings.

You might think that dietary changes made later in life will have little effect on your health. But changing dietary habits and losing weight in middle or even old age can significantly improve how you feel and can decrease your risk of chronic diseases.

To help you in your quest for a healthier lifestyle, two leading authorities have joined together to bring you the 2020 Nutrition and Weight Control White Paper.

Introducing Your Nutrition and Weight Control Experts

Sharon R. Akabas, Ph.D., received her B.A. from Oberlin College, an M.A. in Exercise Physiology from Teachers College, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Nutrition from Columbia University. During the past 38 years, she has taught more than 20 nutrition-related courses at Columbia, ranging from The Biochemical and Physiological Bases of Nutrition to Women and Weight, to Obesity: Etiology, Prevention, and Treatment. Most recently she is focusing on applying systems thinking to undergraduate and graduate food-related courses. This led to working with Dr. Eleanor Sterling to form a Community of Practice that focuses on applying systems thinking to food systems teaching. Dr. Akabas currently is the Director of the M.S. in Nutrition program at Columbia University’s Institute of Human Nutrition.

Christopher Gardner, Ph.D., is a nutrition scientist and the Rehnborg Farquhar Professor of Medicine at Stanford University. For more than 25 years, his research has examined the health benefits of vegetarian diets, weight loss diets, and foods such as soy, garlic, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. Dr. Gardner has overseen more than a dozen randomized clinical trials involving more than 2,000 study participants. His research in nutrition and diet explores motivators of positive dietary change that also consider the impact of food choices on animal welfare, climate change, and social justice issues. An additional focus is on food systems and ways to improve the quality of food provided by institutions such as schools, worksites, senior centers, hospitals, and food banks.
