Beyond the Shot (or Pill): Talking with Patients about the Importance of Healthy Dietary Patterns while on GLP-1 Agonist Drugs

Kristin Kirkpatrick, MS, RDN

Presented by Kristin Kirkpatrick, MS, RDN

The rise of GLP-1 agonist drugs will continue. As clinicians, it’s important to be able to articulate evidence-based guidance to your patients on how to make their experience with the drug (and off the drug) a successful one. Further, understanding dietary patterns that are close in mechanism will also be critical for those patients who cannot consider these drugs due to side effects or cost. During this webinar presentation, Registered Dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick will break down the most important dietary considerations for your patients, as well as practical tips on implementation.

Learning Objectives Include:

  • Understand the mechanism behind GLP-1 agonist
  • Identify optimal macronutrient breakdown for success after taking GLP-1 agonist drugs
  • Identify the macronutrients with the highest satiety factors
  • Be able to counsel patients on the steps toward successful weight loss maintenance
