Clinical Practice Guidelines for Healthy Eating for the Prevention and Treatment of Metabolic and Endocrine Diseases in Adults

Cosponsored by American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists / American College of Endocrinology and The Obesity Society

This joint effort of AACE and TOS addresses this deficit.
