Title:  What is Energy Balance?
Date: Monday, July 21, 2014
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT; 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MT; 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PT)

Although energy balance may seem a simple concept, long-term health requires actively managing both sides of the energy balance equation.  This includes understanding the body's energy needs, including the impact of physical activity, and gaining knowledge about the calorie content of foods and beverages.  This webinar will discuss the basics of energy balance as well as learning behaviors like portion control and calorie budgeting to help patients manage energy intake.
