Are children who attend schools near fast food restaurants more likely to be obese than those who live far from them? Obesity research has recently shifted from focusing on individual causes to viewing individuals within their living environments. Obesity 101 is the first volume to offer a broad and balanced perspective on the complex factors that influence obesity. The text combines current research and information from multiple perspectives to provide an introductory level, reader-friendly overview of the history, causes, prevalence, consequences, treatments, and future trends in prevention. Grounded in behavioral science, it integrates research from a range of disciplines including health psychology, developmental medicine, nutrition, exercise science, public health, economics and sociology. Key Features: Brings together obesity research from multiple disciplines Reviews the effectiveness of prevention and treatment programs and procedures Written clearly and concisely Designed for use by undergraduate and graduate students
