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 2019 Nutrition and Weight Control White Paper.

Introducing Your Nutrition and Weight Control Experts

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.

Barbara Sutherland, Ph.D., is a research nutritionist in the Nutrition and Metabolism Center at the Childrenís Hospital Oakland Research Institute, the research arm of the UCSF Benioff Childrenís Hospital Oakland. Dr. Sutherland has focused her research on the effects of dietary components on metabolism and chronic disease.

As the former statewide director of the University of Californiaís Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, Dr. Sutherland trained county nutrition educators on how best to address the nutritional, food safety, and financial planning needs of their low-income constituents. She received national recognition for her groundbreaking work in creating a research-based curriculum for nutrition educators, which is now in wide use throughout the United States. In addition, she has taught nutrition and food science in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, and other local educational institutions. She currently is in private practice, applying her evidence-based nutrition science, food science, and culinary arts experience to help people improve their health and quality of life.
