Synopsis:

Obesity: Etiology, Assessment, Treatment, and Prevention is a comprehensive professional reference of weight management research and techniques. Featuring chapters from some of the world's top specialists in the field of weight control, it provides the most current and accurate information available today for treating obesity.

The textbook combines a literature review with practical applications, incorporating expert analysis and synthesis of obesity treatment and prevention. The book is an important resource that will prepare health professionals and clinicians to help patients of all ages manage this complex and pervasive disease.

Obesity: Etiology, Assessment, Treatment, and Prevention devotes an entire chapter to treating and preventing obesity in children and discusses other relevant topics:
- Nutrition therapy
- Physical activity
- Alternative therapies such as pharmacotherapy
- Promising trends in obesity treatment

In addition, graphs, tables, and chapter summaries make it easy for busy professionals to find and review key issues on the topic.

As obesity continues to increase at an alarming rate throughout the world, this reference provides practitioners with the latest insight into integrating physical activity, nutrition, psychology, and medicine to help obese patients manage their weight.

About the Author:

Ross Andersen, PhD, is associate director of fellowship training in the division of geriatric medicine at Johns Hopkins Medical Center. Since 1993, he has been conducting clinical trials examining the long-term effects of diet and exercise in helping people manage their weight. In addition, he has published several reports that have shaped current thinking about exercise for overweight individuals.

For 10 years Dr. Andersen operated community-based weight loss programs in health clubs, and he is the author of a book on how to implement weight loss programs in health club settings. He is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and a member of the North American Association for the Study of Obesity (NAASO). He earned his PhD in exercise physiology at Temple University in 1992. He was a visiting scholar at the Cooper Institute in 1996.
