In our media-driven world, we're constantly inundated with fad diets advertised as the “next weight loss miracle.” Americans spent more than $70 billion last year in the diet industry, yet more than two of three Americans are overweight or obese. Although initial weight loss is common when people start a diet, approximately 95% of people will gain back the lost weight. Hundreds of studies have demonstrated that long-term weight loss from dieting does not work. Why? When one goes on a diet, they eventually go off. Therefore, it is time to step off the dieting rollercoaster and into an intuitive eating lifestyle ― an evidence-based, non-dieting approach to food. Join Jill Silverman as she breaks down intuitive eating and introduces you to a whole new way of looking at food.
Jill Rubin Silverman, PhD, RDN, is a member of Binghamton University's Class of 1997. She graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor of science in biology and a minor in Spanish. In 2002, she received her doctorate from the Institute of Human Nutrition at Columbia University in New York, in the field of coronary vascular disease. Subsequently, she completed a dietetic internship and passed the credentialing exam to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
Silverman has a private dietetics practice, specializing in children and adolescents, and is an assistant professor of nutrition science at Farmingdale State College. She enjoys returning to the Binghamton area to eat at Tony's in Endicott and visit her fourth floor cubicle in the Bartle Library. She currently resides on Long Island with her family.
