Understanding the concept of "energy balance" is critical for
devising solutions to the obesity epidemic. Energy balance is
usually defined by the simple equation, "energy in = energy out."
However, research suggests that energy balance is not so simple.
Instead, it is influenced by complex interactions and adjustments
by the body in response to calories consumed, physical activity,
individual biology, the environment and more.
In this program, obesity experts James O. Hill, PhD, and
Keith-Thomas Ayoob, EdD, RD, FADA, provide a real world look at
energy balance and obesity, as well as strategies to use with
overweight patients and clients.
- Define the concept of energy balance
- Recognize how the components of energy balance are
- Contrast approaches to treating versus preventing obesity
- Describe how an understanding of energy balance can help health
professionals develop strategies to reduce obesity
