Standard interventions for weight loss include dietary calorie restriction and an increase in cardiovascular exercise but do not typically include a strategy for preserving metabolic rate during weight loss. Using weight as the primary measurement tool for success and compliance increases the risk of metabolic adaptation since changes in lean body mass are rarely monitored. This session presents methods of assessment and tools for more accurately tracking results of a weight loss effort and highlights the synergistic impact of resistance training and macronutrient balance on resting metabolic rate. Participants will acquire practical recommendations for care of patients/clients embarking on weight loss regimens.
