The balance of energy intake and energy expenditure are incredibly important for weight control. How do we blend these components of energy balance for weight management? Experts in the fields of nutrition and exercise science presented on the biological, lifestyle, and environmental changes that will most successfully help children and families tip the scale toward healthier weights. Insights from IFIC consumer research highlighted public perception and challenges of following diet and exercise guidance to achieve energy balance.

This webcast discussed the research reported in the July 2014 issues of the Journal of Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as well as Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, that is an outcome of the October 2012 expert panel meeting titled "Energy Balance at the Crossroads: Translating the Science into Action" hosted by American College of Sports Medicine, Academy of Nutrition Dietetics and International Life Sciences Institute of North America.
