Abstract

Key Points: - Prevalence of overweight and obesity is significant in adults, children, and adolescents. - Prevalence of overweight and obesity is increasing in developing countries. - Accumulation of excess body weight results from an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure. - Obesity is associated with development of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, cancer, and other conditions. - Lifestyle modification is the first-line treatment for overweight/obesity. - Pharmacologic and bariatric surgical approaches to weight control should be used in conjunction with lifestyle modification.
