We've all heard the latest research reported in the news: Americans are overweight--and obesity has health implications as serious as smoking. What's more, our young people are at risk; 15 percent of all children between the ages of six and nineteen are overweight, and their numbers are growing. OBESITY: MODERN-DAY EPIDEMIC takes a look at this urgent issue from various perspectives. Consistent from book to book is the outlook that this is a lifestyle issue, and all of us are at risk. These books do not perpetuate the myth that each individual must conform to the media images of super-thin models. Instead, the books' timely information empowers readers to make necessary lifestyle choices, choices that will ensure a lifetime of good health.
In an era when rates of obesity, diabetes, and other lifestyle-related diseases challenge medical educators and governments worldwide, it is necessary to consider novel educational strategies, both didactic and experiential, whereby current and future health professionals can be better prepared to proactively advise and teach patients enhanced self-care skills (e.g., diet, movement, stress management, and enhanced behavioral change).

Overweight and obesity refers to abnormal or excessive fat accumulation which presents health risks. It generally arises from a sustained energy imbalance when energy intake through eating and drinking exceeds energy expended through physical activity.
Harvard TH Chan
It’s no secret that the amount of calories people eat and drink has a direct impact on their weight: Consume the same number of calories that the body burns over time, and weight stays stable. Consume more than the body burns, weight goes up. Less, weight goes down. But what about the type of calories.
