Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 1: Nutrition and Balanced Diet A balanced diet regimen gives the body required #nutrition. The prerequisites for a balanced #diet can be met from an assortment of plant and Animal based foods. A #healthy eating regimen provides the necessary energy and nutrition without causing any toxic effects and extra weight gain from consuming more #food than required by the body. Balanced Diet and nutritional food help in reducing the risks of various chronic disorders like #obesity, heart diseases, #cancer, #hypertension and #diabetes.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 2: Epidemiology of Obesity Overweight and obesity are defined as irregular or excessive #fat accumulation that may impair #health. According to the WHO fact sheet globally, since 1975 the number of people suffering from #obesity has tripled. In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults were #overweight out of which 650 million were obese. The main reason of obesity and overweight is due to the imbalance between the #calories consumed and spent. World-wide rise of obesity is mainly due to an increased intake of fast #food and lack of physical activity due to the onset of urbanization.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 3: Diet and Obesity Obesity is one of the leading health problems in today’s world being responsible for numerous deaths globally. People suffering from #obesity have a very high risk of suffering from various life taking chronic diseases. Unfortunately, people have subdued to crash #diet and pills which cause rapid decease in weight and #nutritional deficiencies and have shown to negatively affect their #health and appetite. A healthy balanced diet with a proper #exercise regimen will help the people suffering from obesity to lose weight at a proper and steady pace. It also helps in boosting their overall health by inducing energy and immunity.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 4: Health Risks of Obesity Tackling #obesity is very essential because including physical changes it can also lead to potentially lifethreatening chronic conditions such as #cancer, coronary #heart diseases and type 2 #diabetes. Based on the severity, the life span of a person suffering from obesity is reduced by an average of 3 to 10 years. Statistical research data indicates that in Europe 1 in every 13 deaths is because of being obese and #overweight.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 5: Obesity and Psychiatric Disorders As much as #obesity is a physical problem it is also a psychological problem. #Psychological issues are a warning for the development of obesity and it will also lead to problems during the on-going weight control struggle. Psychological assessment has become mandatory in the multi-disciplinary approach which also includes #BariatricSurgery. Recently #CognitiveTherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy have become an important approach for the treatment of obesity. The achievement of considerable #WeightLoss by surgical or non-surgical means is crucially related to a person’s ability to make changes in one’s habits and #lifestyle which not only involves a proper #diet and #exercise regimen, but also management of emotional and psychological stress.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 6: Urbanization, Lifestyle changes and Nutrition Transition Due to the onset of #urbanization the fresh market source is disappearing and more of #ProcessedFood is being utilized by the public. High increase in the consumption of #dairy and #poultry is also seen throughout the world. Due to such transitions in the #diet several negative #health implications are seen in in the public due to the presence of harmful components in #food like pesticide, antibiotic residues and chemical fertilizers. The recent studies showed that genetically modified food have reported to increase #obesity in the population. Due to increasing awareness and #lifestyle changes people have now started opting for organic and homemade food. But due to the economics involved for the cultivation of #OrganicFood, it becomes difficult for the outreach of these foods.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 7: Pediatric Nutrition Proper amount of food and #nutrition during the early stages of a child's development is essential for the proper growth of a child. Any nutritional deficiency at this vital stage may lead to #health implications in the later stages of their life. Due to #lifestyle changes and #urbanization, children are prone to less physical activity and more sedentary lifestyle due to which #ChildhoodObesity is on the rise. Recent research on #obesity in children indicated that the time spent by children watching TV is proportional with their consumption of the most advertised #food items. Childhood obesity can badly affect a child's physical and mental health leading to poor academic performance and low self-esteem.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 8: Maternal Nutrition Along with giving importance to #pregnancy and birth, considering a women's health and nutritional status during early life and adult life is important to reduce the risks associated during pregnancy. Providing required #nutrition before the reproductive years will ensure #healthy pregnancy and postmenopausal period. Hence maintaining appropriate nutritional status of a #women will ensure a healthy life for her and her offspring. Women should also be educated about balanced #diet to promote healthy eating regimen and ideal nutritional status.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 9: Epidemiology of Malnutrition #Malnutrition is a major global problem and initiatives should be taken by the national Governments to prevent the conditions of under-nutrition and over-nutrition. Effective #health treatment for people suffering from #obesity will also lead to healthy benefits and proper nutritional support for people suffering from malnutrition will lead to good clinical outcomes and reduced mortality rates worldwide which will lead to significant cost savings for the health care sector globally. Due to the prevalence of #food insecurity around the world people are unable to meet the basic dietary demands of their body which leads to a condition of #nutrition insecurity.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 10: Eating disorders Eating Disorder is a condition in which a person eats too much or consumes insufficient #food leading to #health complications. With the ascent of westernization, scientific innovations and social reforms the idea of a perfect #lifestyle and body shape is on the main checklist. According to the survey conducted by the National Eating Disorder Association around the word 70 million people are prone to #EatingDisorders. Since 1990's dietary problems have been progressively regular in Singapore.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 11: Sport and Exercise Nutrition The energy requirement for #sports individual is different from a normal person hence they should have a different #diet plan. An athlete should make dietary changes not just to perform for a particular game but to match his/her long-term necessities. A proper #nutritional diet for a games individual comprises of at least 2000 #calories for each day. The #GlycemicIndex has now become an important part in an athlete’s diet plan. A #healthy eating regimen will provide the #athlete with the required energy and boost both on the field and during practice sessions.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 12: Health Implications of Processed Food Around the world the use of #ProcessedFood is on high point. Eating processed food on a regular basis will have side effects on our #health. Processing the #food will remove the necessary #nutrients from the food leaving an item with low #calories and very less nutrient value. The additives present in processed food are thought to compromise our body's normal functioning and are found to cause #HighBloodPressure and #cancer. According to the study published in the Journal of the World Public

Health and #Nutrition Association the main cause of #obesity world-wide is due to the rise in consumption of Ultra-processed food items.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 13: Food allergies and intolerances Food allergy is body's immune response to certain #food items whereas food intolerance is a body's chemical reaction towards a food item. #FoodAllergies are on the rise particularly in school going children especially #peanut allergy. Food allergies may be life threatening. #FoodIntolerance is not

involved with the immune system and does not cause severe allergic reactions. Food intolerance may lead to irritable #bowel syndrome, #asthma or chronic fatigue.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 14: Obesity treatment and Management Obesity can be managed by combination of #lifestyle change, #exercise and #healthy #diet plans. In case of severe Obesity #BariatricSurgery and medications will be employed. People who have gone through bariatric surgery have suppressed hunger and the mechanism which causes obesity based type 2 diabetes is reversed and it also causes sixty to eighty percent weight loss for a long term. But it has it cons that is it may cause some post-surgery complications and essential loss of #nutrients in the body.

People who don't want to go under the needle can opt for natural methods like #yoga and #naturopathy to increase the metabolism of #fat and revive the organs in the body to function normally.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 15: Relevance of Clinical Nutrition #ClinicalNutrition is essential for patients in #healthcare to deal with sickness, injuries, surgery and for proper recovery. It helps in preventing #malnutrition, restoring body tissue and boosting energy and immunity in the body. It can be provided with a proper #diet plan and feeding the patient with essential #food that revive the patient’s body the patient can also be given healthy #supplements for #proteins,

#vitamins etc. The preferred route of #nutrition administration is oral although parenteral and enteral routes are also followed.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 16: Market Research on Nutrition Earlier #nutrition market was concentrated of products for treatment of #malnutrition condition but now due to innovations in the #healthcare sector and due rising awareness among the people the market for nutritional products like healthy #supplements, #OrganicFood and #FunctionalFood has increased. The

transitional change in the #lifestyle of people and due to the rising number of people suffering from various chronic ailments has led the public to intake additional nutritional supplements to boost their energy and immunity.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 17: Nutrigenomics Research Nutrition plays an important role in determining the #health of a person. What we are is what we eat. Every person has a different genetic makeup and the #nutrients react differently to each person’s #genes. The science of #Nutrigenomics deals with the study of how genes react to different nutrients in

#food and how this variation will influence diseases like #cancer. By understanding a person’s genetic make-up a #nutritionist can deduce a #diet plan which is beneficial to treat a particular disease. Hence nutrigenomics can be called as the future of #nutrition.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 18: Food Borne illnesses and food safety methods Food borne illness is caused to due food contaminated or spoiled due to pathogenic microorganisms due to which an infected individual will suffer from #fever, #vomiting, #diarrhea etc. The illness can also be caused due to chemicals or toxins which will be present in the #food. Till date more than 250 food borne illnesses have been identified around the world and in the United States of America around forty eight

million people suffer from food borne illnesses every year. Hence it is necessary to deduce proper and efficient #FoodSafety methods to decrease the rate of uptake of people suffering from #FoodBorneIllnesses.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 19: Dietary Supplements, Nutraceuticals and Functional Food #FunctionalFoods are those which have been processed to aid in specific body functions along with providing nutrition. #Nutraceuticals have the same definition but in addition they are formulated as pharmaceutical drugs. The functional #food industry is developing at a rapid pace due to the increasing

awareness of people towards a #healthy #lifestyle. Customers interest towards the connection between food and drugs has expanded the nutraceuticals market.

Diet Congress 2018 September 7-8, 2018 Track 20: Food Technology and Nutrition Many chronic diseases are now caused due to the insufficient uptake of certain #vitamins and #minerals in our body. Many research innovations are now creating simple and #nutrition filled #food that gives overall nutrition to human body. #FoodTechnology research has reached an advanced stage in the nutrition research field. #FoodTechnologists are now working on #Superfoods which will not get spoilt

easily and will also provide essential #nutrients to the body. As of now, the global #health crisis is divided into people suffering with #obesity and other is people suffering from #malnutrition, so research in #food that will provide the essential benefits for both the parties, guarantees a maximum solution to the global health crisis.
