Whether the new year is approaching, or your clients 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 quickly – 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 first engage your groups with a thought-provoking question about the fad diets they’ve heard about. You will then expand their knowledge about fad diets like keto, intermittent fasting, Paleo, and other more healthful diets like the Mediterranean Diet. You will educate them on the Top 5 Fad Diet Red Flags, and share mindful / intuitive eating as an alternative. Then, you will help them exercise that knowledge with a Spot the Fad Diet Red Flags game. Finally, you will 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 $20, the basic toolkit includes – 

  • PowerPoint presentation that is entirely customizable to include your contact information, and even add in any additional fad diets you think are relevant.
  • Lesson plan outline
  • Fad Diet Red Flags Checklist
  • The Hunger-Satiety Scale handout (which can be printed out and pinned to the fridge for easy reference!)
  • Mindful Eating Tipsheet 
  • The option to take this entirely online!

For just $30, the upgraded toolkit includes –

  • All of the above, plus
  • A complete script that takes you through the entire workshop as I’ve used it with my groups. It provides talking points, question breaks, and activity step-by-step instructions to guide your participants through an online session as needed. Recently updated to include additional research articles that support information presented in the workshop. 

Get your hands on this today! Let me help you steer your clients clear of those fad diets.

  • Such great value!

    Thank you for this information! I was looking for basic presentations on each of the IE principles. I found yours which works perfect for setting up the first principle. I honestly don’t want to recreate the wheel. This presentation saves me so much time! Thank you for all that comes with this one!! It really helps so much!

    • Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, Patricia. I’m glad this done-for-you workshop helped save you some time!

  • 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! 🙂

  • Fab fad diet presentation
