The pandemic of obesity in the majority of countries of theworld has become a major health problem: obesity leads to a number of seriousdiseases including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension,stroke, cancer, psychological problems and a poor quality of life.

Obesityaffects almost every branch of medicine and clinical practice and this puts ahuge strain on healthcare provision.

The book begins with an overview of the causesof obesity, the mechanisms that lead to individuals becoming obese and thehealth issues associated with being obese.
