Intermittent fasting is a diet with rising popularity on the Internet and in the medical literature. It is advocated primarily for weight and body fat loss, but also for prevention and control of cancer. This session will review the evidence for and against this new diet regime.
Speaker: Dr. Tanis Fenton, is a Registered Dietitian and Epidemiologist. She developed the Fenton Preterm Growth Charts based on a need she saw when she was working clinically as a dietitian. These growth charts have been built into several electronic medical records, apps, as well as included in over 30 textbooks. In 2019, she received the O’Brien Institute Mid-Career Research Leader Award from the Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary. Currently, Dr. Fenton is the invited Chair for the Preterm Infant Expert Workgroup for the American Dietary Guidelines. Her research interests include nutrition, premature infant growth, and knowledge translation.
