Abstract

Obesity can be managed, though in most cases, only with substantial difficulty and ongoing effort to sustain weight control. The treatment options consist of diet, exercise, behavior modification, pharmacotherapy, and bariatric surgery. These modalities are best used in a phased approach, preferably in the context of comprehensive assessment and a team-based treatment, along with a maintenance plan. While the obesity treatment modalities discussed in this article can be successfully applied to individuals, changing/improving our environment is the key to preventing and reversing this public health epidemic.
