Weight Management Strategies - A Holistic Approach
Weight Management Strategies - A Holistic Approach
The World Health Organization has estimated that by 2030, the obesity rate in the United States will increase to 70%. The steady rise in obesity is already causing a significant strain on the health care system to the point that it affects the US economy. The pertinence of the obesity problem has caused Universities and government organizations to allocate increased resources towards researching the leading factors and the major roadblocks of successful weight loss. In conjunction, weight management has become a leading responsibility of personal trainers. Therefore, it is integral for personal trainers to understand both the health risks of obesity as well as proper management procedures. Countless clinical trials have found that dieting alone is insufficient to cause long-term weight loss. More recent research has focused on the specific effects of sitting and lack of exercise on public health, finding that both appear to be bigger threats to obesity than previously expected.
