Public Comment Guideline Review

Medical Nutrition Therapy Interventions for Adult Overweight and Obesity Treatment: An Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guideline

 The Academy thanks the nutrition and dietetics community for sharing your feedback on the draft guideline posted to the Evidence Analysis Library website. Public input is a crucial step of the guideline development process, and every comment submitted through the EAL survey will be carefully considered. In light of the response to the draft guideline, there is more work to be done to ensure evidence-based recommendations address concerns surrounding patient-centered language and triggering language tied to disordered eating, body dysmorphia, weight bias, fat phobia and other important factors. The researchers and expert panel members of the Evidence Analysis Library will review the feedback received and work to address concerns submitted by professionals while maintaining the integrity of the evidence. An update on next steps will follow shortly.
