Description
 
In 1995, the first Expert Panel on the Identification, Evaluation, and Treatment of Overweight and Obesity in Adults was convened to develop clinical practice guidelines for primary care practitioners. The impetus for these guidelines was the recognition that the prevalence of overweight and obesity in the U.S. is increasing, and that practitioners need to be alerted to the accompanying health risks. The panel used the principles of evidence-based medicine, including an evidence model and evidence categories. It was the first time a panel thoroughly examined the scientific evidence for risks associated with overweight and obesity, and their treatments, and developed clinical practice recommendations based on their conclusions. This report presents the findings of the panel and the guidelines that it developed. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
