About The Seminar
Education on nutriton coaching and diet strategies often centres around improving body composition and quantifying intake, and rightly so. However, this is only one lens through which to view how we eat impacts our health and performance.
There are vast areas of nutritional science research that can (and should) be incorporated into nutrition/dietetic practice in order to allow individuals to be the healthiest humans they can be.
In this seminar we will examine many areas of nutrtion research and practice that can be used to improve human health. The seminar is aimed at nutritionists, dietitians and fitness professionals who want to upskill their practice through exploring the latest concepts in nutrition science.
"Hot Topic Critiques"
We’ll be taking a look at some of the hottest topics in nutritional science and practice with a critical mindset, helping you understand what’s valid and what’s not.
The Science & Application of Time-Restricted Feeding
One of the emerging dietary interventions to gain popularity in both research circles and beyond in recent years is time-restricted feeding (TRF). You’ll learn what the most up-to-date research has to say, the potential uses in practice and examples of such an intervention may be applied.
Non-Diet Approaches: Help or Hindrance?
Given both the conventional lack of efficacy and potential for negative psychological consequences of weight loss advice & interventions, the area of “non-diet” approaches has offered hope. We’ll take a look at some of the concepts that fall under this area (or closely related), such as intuitive eating, Health At Every Size and preoccupation with food or dieting. The aim is to determine whether some of these ideas are beneficial or counter-productive, with some implications for practice.
Assessing & Progressing: Moving Beyond Macros
Sometimes it can feel like many nutrition conversations in the fitness industry are only about macronutrients. And more worryingly, the promotion of the idea we should all be “tracking macros” is pervasive. Here you’ll learn many methods for setting dietary goals, assessing progress and giving recommendations, that are not reliant on macronutrient tracking or suggesting.
Improving Biomarkers of Health Through Diet
Practitioners will encounter many people who objectively in poor health based on common biomarkers like fasting glucose, blood lipids and blood pressure. In such cases, a medical professional should be working with the person and overseeing what they do. But what are some safe dietary approaches that are likely beneficial for improving health?
Circadian Biology: What Can't Be Ignored
Circadian biology is one of the most fundamental underpinnings of health. Here you’ll learn not only how strongly it dictates health, but you’ll learn about how external factors like light exposure, meal timing and social schedules can play a pivotal role.
Altering the Risk Equation of Chronic Disease
How much do dietary changes actually make a difference in the long-term? And how strongly do they influence the development of chronic disease? We’ll discuss the concept of how nutrition (and other factors) modify our own personal “risk equation”
About the Presenter
Danny Lennon is the founder of Sigma Nutrition. Danny has a masters degree/MSc. in Nutritional Sciences and a BSc. in Biology & Physics. Danny is the host of the popular Sigma Nutrition Radio podcast, with more 3 million downloads to date.
Danny spends most of his time reading nutrition research and talking to researchers about their work. This constant learning in conjunction to his coaching experience sets the stage for his favourite activity: condensing all this information into an engaging and educational format, presented through seminars and lectures.
Danny has spoken on a variety of nutriton topics at events around the world, including London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Melbourne, Sydney and of course Dublin.
His philosophy is based on the interesection of deep curiousity and acute awareness of what we don’t know, using science as the tool to help better understand ideas.
