In this presentation called "Demystifying Popular Diets", Rory Hornstein discusses how we should not be fooled by weight loss claims and fad diets. The session includes nutrition facts on popular weight loss programs. Ours is an age of unprecedented bounty and convenience--and almost nonstop nutritional advice, subject to change as new research findings come along or scientists change their minds. You try to keep up with the latest and make the smartest choices--but are they as healthy as you think? Find out how to plan a realistic program for overall wellness and immune system enhancement.

About the presenter:

Rory Hornstein, RD, BEd., AFLCA, is a Registered Dietitian specializing in nutrition for sports, exercise, weight management (adults and pediatric/adolescent), eating disorders and body image, food intolerances/allergies, immune system enhancement, and digestive disorders. Rory is the designated person for nutritional consultation at the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinic, Division of Gastroenterology at the University of Calgary through her private practice. Her goal is to educate by integrating her knowledge and skills in the fields of nutrition, fitness and health promotion. Rory is a certified Bariatric dietitian empowering her clients to become "intuitive eaters" and reach their goals; one bite at a time. She uses a "non-dieting" approach and encourages her clients to adopt an overall healthier lifestyle for achieving their goals. At the age of twelve, Rory was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. After years of trying to heal, Rory realized the power of using diet in conjunction with traditional medicine to control her inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), rather than allowing it to control her. Nutrition became the link between feeling sick and feeling well. Rory has been in private practice for ten years and specializes in nutrition and inflammatory bowel disease while sharing her personal experience and expertise.
