Physical Activity▪ Calories burned▪ Increased insulin sensitivity ▪ Enhanced glucose uptake ▪ Moderated insulin secretion in response to carbohydrate load ▪ Greater use of fat for fuel ▪ Greater satiety over time ▪ More effective regulation of food intake ▪ Sharper distinction between hunger and satiety▪ Excessive activity/overtraining ▪ Increased insulin resistance ▪ Can mitigate benefits

Perinatal Epigenetic Factors▪ Before pregnancy health status ▪ Nutrient intake, calorie intake ▪ Relative insulin sensitivity ▪ Activity level, stress management▪ Perinatal nutrition status ▪ Diet & activity ▪ Glucose tolerance ▪ Total and rate of weight gain▪ Nutrition status infant ▪ Birth weight, body composition, rate of weight gain ▪ Breast v. bottle feeding
Gut Microbiome and Obesity Executive Summary ▪ At birth, humans are essentially free of bacteria and over time the body becomes a host to complex microbial communities ▪ Dietary habits are considered to be one of the main factors that contribute to gut microbiota. ▪ Microbial changes in the human gut are one of the possible causes of obesity.http://www.futuremedicine.com/doi/pdf/10.2217/fmb.11.142
Sleep Debt ▪ Children with shorter sleep duration had a 58% higher risk for overweight or obesity, ▪ Children with shortest sleep duration had an even higher risk (92%) ▪ Each hour increase in sleep, reduces the risk of overweight/obesity by 9% on averageXiaoli Chen, May A. Beydoun, Youfa Wang. Is Sleep Duration Associated With Childhood Obesity? ASystematic Review and Meta-analysis. Obesity Volume 16, Issue 2, pages 265–274. February 2008
Chronic Stress ▪ Both behavioral and biological pathways are involved in the connection between chronic stress and obesity in adults and children ▪ Emotional "comfort" eating ▪ Lack of sleep ▪ Impulsive behaviors ▪ Selection of specific foods Eat Weight Disord. 2010 September; 15(3): e166–e172.
What is Stress? ▪ How much is sensory integration a factor? ▪ At what point is the stimulus/lack of stimulus overwhelming? Touch/pressure Taste Smell Light/visual stimuliHyposensitive Auditory stimuli Hypersensitive Vestibular stimulation’ Developmental expectations Academic expectations Social expectations . Family stress (time/$/relationships)
Genetic Traits Impact Food Intake ▪ Up to 69% of eating behaviors may be genetically determined ▪ Response to internal satiety cues ▪ Response to taste or smell of food ▪ Sensitivity to rewards/reinforcement for eating preferred foods ▪ Food preferences ▪ Parental monitoring of food intake ▪ is more result of child obesity, not an antecedentStang and Loth. ADAJ:111(9) 1301-1305
Chronic Stress ▪ Four studies examined ADHD in obese adults and teens and reported higher- than-expected prevalence ranging from 13.3% to 57.7% ▪ Elevated cortisol/insulin drives refined starch and sugar intake ▪ How much of the issue is undeveloped self regulation and/or resilience?

Nutrition and Metabolic Health: Where do we start? Pregnancy Pre- Infancy pregnancy Adolescence Childhood True prevention addresses food, nutrition, lifestyle throughout the life cycle
Is doing something better than nothing?▪ Nutrition counseling is not well studied in the context of primary care▪ Clinicians report only 55 seconds, on average, per visit were spent with children on nutritional counseling▪ Nutrition counseling only occurred for 33% of obese children, and 25% of all visits to family practice physiciansICAN, Wilhelm et al. Vol 4, No. 5, Oct, 2012
Cultivating an approach to food that works▪ Improve metabolic Organic/Local health Foods▪ Measure true MORE WHOLE FOODS, biomarkers Less refined sugar/starch/fat▪ Focus on Better balance behaviors, not body of size CHO/PRO/FAT MoveICAN, Wilhelm et al. Vol 4, No. 5, Oct, 2012
Stop, Start, Continue ▪ STOP ▪ Assuming ideal weight or BMI is the same as metabolic health ▪ Believing weight loss is a simple math problem ▪ Using weight or BMI to determine who needs nutrition counseling.

Stop, Start, Continue ▪ START ▪ Considering what approach to food is best for any one patient ▪ Mix of macronutrients ▪ Food distribution ▪ How much is enough ▪ Considering each encounter an opportunity to teach/reinforce self- regulation and resilience
Dietary Guidelines for Fit Kids▪ Avoid getting over hungry▪ Eat regular meals, snacks through the dayStarving Just Enough Full Stuffed Still Hungry Satisfied Overfull
Stop, Start, Continue CONTINUE ▪ Engaging with each child, each family, actively assessing the capacity to change ▪ Readiness ▪ Willingness ▪ Ability ▪ Focusing on the process, not just the outcome ▪ Providing appropriate referrals and resources for additional support
