CHRISTMAS GREETINGS FROM YOUR CHAIR AND NEWS FOR THE NEW YEAR

As we approach the end of the year, BANT Council would like to thank you very much for your ongoing support for the work that we’ve carried out over the last 12 months!

BANT’s ultimate aim is, as always, to support its members. This year we have continued to do that by persisting in our robust defence of our profession. We also work tirelessly to strengthen the organisation’s position at the heart of the nutrition debate going forward, particularly post-Brexit, by being fully engaged with stakeholders, as well as regulatory and professional bodies.

BANT is extremely proud of how many of its members volunteer for the organisation so that vital projects can be brought to fruition and so that the ultimate aim of BANT members being the ‘go to’ practitioners for nutrition and lifestyle medicine can be achieved.

BANT is a leading light in progressive nutrition clinical practice with forward thinking evidence-based projects such as the rapidly expanding Nutrition Evidence Database and the recent launch of the initial PROM/Wecudos research study, the first of a series of studies that will carry on throughout 2020. It is all thanks to you, whether you volunteer your time or whether you support these important tools by using them in your day to day practice.

NUTRITION EVIDENCE ALERT

SENT IN COLLABORATION WITH NUTRIENTS 

Nutrients MDPI

 

Fasting – the practice of restricting or eliminating food for a specific period of time – has a long and interesting history.  Rooted in ancient religious and cultural practices, it has seen a revival in recent years, as a practice that promotes health, particularly in relation to health ageing.  The science of fasting is building in relation to cardiovascular health, obesity, metabolic syndrome, Type 2 diabetes and cancer, amongst other chronic conditions often seen in a Nutrition Practitioner’s clinic room.

This edition of the Nutrition Evidence alert focuses on intermittent fasting, in its various forms, highlighting 57 RCTs that the Editorial Team has chosen for you. There are 10 with plain language summaries, so they are instantly shareable with your patients/clients, friends and family. The simple practice of fasting is being shown to have powerful impacts on health and is a useful clinical tool to have in your box. Read up on the science to keep yourself fully informed with the latest evidence available.

To shake things up and keep your learning active, check out this 2 Part Podcast Series on Intermittent Fasting, hosted by Dr Chatterjee and featuring Professor Satchin Panda.  Selected podcasts are now featured on Nutrition Evidence and will appear in your search lists.

UPDATE RE: BANT COUNTER PETITION TO AFN CHARTERED STATUS REQUEST

Further to our statement alerting members to AfN’s gazetted (officially published) application for Royal Charter for the pre-eminence in the field of ’nutrition, health and allied subjects’.

BANT thanks the large proportion of its over 3,000 members who have written in to offer their thoughts and recommendations for inclusion within BANT’s Counter Petition. Members will appreciate that with time being of the essence, individual responses are not possible. We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate the instruction that individual members NOT provide comment to Privy Council as this may prejudice the Counter Petition which BANT is working hard on with its Legal Counsel. BANT members will be kept abreast of any news.
