Four years ago we had a BIG idea. What if we could throw a nutrition conference in Los Angeles and talk about the important issues that are not being addressed at the state and national conferences?
What if we could lead the discussion that would pave the way for future nutrition professionals? What if there was WAY more to it than most people think? And thus the conversation was BORN. Each year we have been sold out, and this year will be the most epic yet!
On behalf of LAD – Los Angeles District of California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics I am THRILLED to announce our line-up this year for our VIRTUAL EVENT “More than Meets the Eye: How Unseen Factors Impact Nutrition and Health” on Friday July 31, 2020.
If you have an interest in nutrition, join us for a full day of cutting edge information plus networking with like-minded individuals. We are offering 4 CPEs for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists.

David Wiss MS RDN walks you through some of the controversies around nutrition, eating behavior, and food addiction during childhood and adolescence. Key take-away points:
- Nutrition and weight loss interventions on children and adolescents appear mostly ineffective
- Addiction-like eating may be the explanatory mechanism
- Not an individual problem as much a societal problem
- The use of food to regulate mood starts early
- Loss of control eating is common during adolescence
- First 1,000 days appears critical for shaping one’s relationship to food
- It probably starts sooner! In utero & parental genes
- Food environment and other social factors are of course critical
- We need nutrition-related public health policy
