Dietary and Behavioral Approaches in the Management of Obesity

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Given the prevalence of overweight and obesity and their associated health conditions, clinicians will be increasingly tasked with the responsibility of addressing overweight and obesity. This article reviews the 5As approach—assess, advise, agree, assist, arrange—and how clinicians can use the approach facilitate weight management discussions with their patients that met the recommendations provided in the 2013 adult weight management guidelines issued by the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology/The Obesity Society.
