    The Obesity Epidemic

    couple-beach-2-smObesity increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis and some cancers. The U.S. government has labeled obesity an epidemic, and has called for a public health public approach to treating overweight and obesity. A recent NCBI report (2011) estimates the direct medical cost of overweight and obesity in the U.S. is over $113B.

    Commercial vs. Clinic-Based Weight Loss Program

    Dr. Adam Gilden Tsai of the University of Colorado, Denver compared results of a commercial weight loss program (Weight Watchers) with a medically-supervised clinic program. Patients in the clinic program had ten times better results (4Kg vs. .4Kg)! According to Dr. Tsai, "We think this small study suggests that a clinic-based approach might be more effective ... but we certainly need larger trials to answer that question fully."

    Stephanie Sogg, PhD at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston noted, "this is a very important study because it demonstrates in a randomized clinical trial that individualized medical treatment for weight loss was superior ... to a very popular commercial program."
