Effective overweight and obesity treatment requires a triad of behavioral, nutritional and physical activity modifications. A basic program is clearly presented for use by healthcare professionals that includes information for self-management of weight reduction, plus when needed, the prerequisites for drug or surgical management.
Obesity - Behavioral, Medical & Surgical Management, 3rd Edition, provides multi-faceted management approaches to lead to health improvements through behavioral modification, balanced low-fat nutritional intake, daily exercise, and surgical therapy considerations for severe obesity. This updated publication also contains extensive medical literature references and resource information including BMI table and referral criteria.
