Community Event: Virtual Workshop for NNJ Professionals & Alumni - The Myth of the “Quarantine 15” and the Truth About Fad Diets

June 18, 2020, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

 The Myth of the “Quarantine 15” and the Truth About Fad Diets

Thursday, June 18, 2020 • 10:00 am - 11:00 am (EDT) 

In today’s world of social media and “fake news,” it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with food and diet trends, including: paleo, clean eating, gluten free, keto, Whole 30, and more. Commonly linked to body image concerns that can contribute to the development of an eating disorder, these approaches can be increasingly dangerous and detrimental to dieters.

Led by Caroline Lucin, MS, RD, Registered Dietitian at The Renfrew Center of Northern New Jersey, this VIRTUAL workshop will examine the following:

  • What is the “Quarantine 15” and where did it come from?
  • What are fad diets and how do they gain popularity?
  • What is true and false about diet trends?
  • What is “normal” eating?

This workshop is open to professionals, Renfrew alumni and the community in the Northern New Jersey area.

Please contact Nancy Graham, LCSW: • 201-615-1475

Attendees will need access to wi-fi, and a device with a camera, microphone and audio capabilities.
