Weight-Loss & Exercise

with Kylene Bogden, MS, RD, CSSD, LD


Weight-loss and exercise – you cannot have one without the other according to everything that you hear lately. But are there tips and tricks for weight loss while participating in regular exercise? How do you know what to eat before and after a workout as well as throughout the day? What are ‘fueling strategies’ as it relates to weight management? How should you increase calories while working out or as prep for small events such as a 5k?

Join Cleveland Clinic registered dietician and sports nutrition expert, Kylene Bogden to discuss these concerns including myths vs. facts regarding post work out protein shakes, chocolate milk, and carb loading before intensive work outs or events.

The Anti-inflammatory Diet: A Way to Manage Chronic Pain

with William Welches, DO


Managing your chronic pain with an anti-inflammatory diet

A large number of people live with chronic pain. For many, neural (nerve) blocks aren't the answer and medications have unacceptable side effects. The anti-inflammatory diet represents a powerful therapy for pain control, with beneficial side effects and it is an integrative approach to pain management, along with exercise, stress management, osteopathic manipulation therapy and acupuncture.

Join us from noon to 1 p.m., July 13th as Cleveland Clinic’s Wellness Institute hosts a free, online health chat.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to chat live with William Welches, DO, PhD and learn how to manage your chronic pain by following an anti-inflammatory diet.
