slide preview from cracking fad diets workshop

Whether the new year is approaching, or people are trying to get “summer body ready”, there’s no shortage of fad diets out there. Diet culture preys on our clients’ insecurities and desires to lose weight quick – but as nutrition professionals we know that can set them up for a road of yo-yo dieting. Set the record straight with this Cracking Fad Diets workshop toolkit, which now has a scripted option! 

This 45-60 minute long workshop, designed for both in person and online settings, is perfect for helping adults understand many of the popular fad diets out there, and why they don’t work. It helps them begin to think critically about the various nutrition claims made for weight loss, as well as how to incorporate mindful eating into their own lives to reach food freedom. Created using a dialogue approach, this workshop engages your learners, expands their knowledge, allows them to exercise that new knowledge, and elevates their understanding to take it home.

In this workshop you will engage your groups with a thought-provoking question about the fad diets they’ve heard about, expand their knowledge about fad diets and mindful eating, exercise that knowledge by sharing some scenarios, and elevate your participants’ understanding with takeaways to bring home so they can continue to take strides toward food freedom.

The two toolkit options are:

For just $15, the basic toolkit includes – 

  • PowerPoint presentation you can customize
  • Lesson plan outline
  • How to spot a fad diet handout
  • The Hunger-Satiety Scale handout (which could be printed out and pinned to the fridge for easy reference!)
  • Easily able to take it online! 

For just $20, the upgraded toolkit includes – 

  • All of the above, plus
  • A complete script that takes you through the entire workshop, providing talking points, question breaks, and activity step-by-step instructions to guide your participants even through a Zoom session!

  • Well received during a Basic Nutrition class presentation!

    I had 3 hours to present, so I did my own Basic Nutrition presentation first, we had an activity, then I did this presentation. My audience loved it and they were Master Food Volunteers at our local Extension Office. So important for those teaching nutrition to the general public to be exposed to diet questions they’ll receive & how to balance their messaging. They loved it. The handouts that come with this on hunger/fullness cues and how to spot a diet were fantastic too.

    • Sarah, thank you so much for this lovely review! I’m so glad to hear you had such a successful presentation with your audience of Master Food Volunteers! 🙂
