NFCA Webinar: “Maintaining a Healthy Weight While Eating Gluten-Free: The Importance of Physical Activity and Mindful Eating”

The NFCA will be bringing another wonderful webinar installment our way on April 18, 2012.  The latest webinar will be sponsored by Blue Diamond Growers and given by a friend of mine, Amy Jones, MS, RD, LD, Chief Clinical Dietitian and Celiac Support Group Facilitator of Mary Rutan Hospital.  Amy lives in the same area of Ohio that I do and I have even had the pleasure of meeting her at a race last fall!  She is a such a sweet person & super knowledgeable, too!

I love this topic and learning fun, new ways to eat healthy while following the gluten-free diet.  More about the webinar:

Weight is a popular topic when it comes to questions about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet. While a sign of undiagnosed celiac disease can be weight loss, research has shown that this disease can impact overweight individuals, too. Further, many newly diagnosed celiacs experience the common unwanted reality of weight gain due to their small intestine now able to absorb more of the nutrients they are consuming. Please join NFCA as Amy educates gluten-free individuals on how to manage their weight through a nutritious gluten-free diet using a healthy fitness regimen and a mindful approach to eating.

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 8:30 PM EST.  Amy will be incorporating webinar participants questions into her presentation.  To have your question or concern included, please send an email to by April 3, 2012 with “April Webinar Q&A” in the subject line.  There is no cost for this webinar, the only requirement is a working internet connection.  Please register here for further instructions.

As always, archived webinars can be viewed here.  They don’t just have the most recent, but going back quite a while on a myriad of topics pertaining to Celiac Disease & the gluten-free diet.
