Addressing a growing epidemic in today's world, Obesity: Evaluation and Treatment Essentials presents practical treatment protocols for obesity, including exercise, pharmacology, behavior modification, and dietary factors, from the point of view of the practicing physician.

Encompassing a multidisciplinary audience of clinicians and researchers, this comprehensive resource is an invaluable, user-friendly tool for bariatric physicians and surgeons, endocrinologists, diabetologists, nutritionists, dieticians, and all those who treat obesity. Written by prominent members of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, this text: * Showcases successful treatment methods by including key points of various clinicians in each chapter * Includes an up-to-date chapter on the pharmacology of bariatric medicine that identifies the three classes of obesity drugs: those that increase energy expenditure, those that decrease energy intake, and those that inhibit the digestion and absorption of food * Addresses various dietary intervention approaches such as low calorie balanced diets, low carbohydrate diets, and very low carbohydrate diets * Explores the comorbidities of obesity, such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and Type II diabetes
