Abstract

Most current approaches to obesity management involve dietary interventions designed to change and reduce the amount of food consumed. Research indicates, however, that although such interventions can induce weight loss in the short term longer term changes in weight, which are required if the individual’s health is to improve, are much more difficult to sustain. This paper will explore the complex reasons behind why we eat and the many roles that food plays in our lives. It will then explore current dietary and alternative interventions for obesity and assess what we can learn from them to improve obesity management.
