Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Overweight and obesity are global problems, affecting over 1 billion adults and 17.6 million children under 5 years of age. Obesity is a chronic relapsing disease that can lead to numerous chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease, and cancer, among others, affecting quality of life and leading to psychological problems. Additionally, successful treatment will have an important impact on medical resource utilization, healthcare costs, and patient quality of life as well as increased life span. The combination of a high-calorie diet and lack of exercise is the biggest contributor to obesity. Which diets result in safe weight loss, have positive long-term consequences for chronic disease risk factors, and are sustainable in the long term for weight maintenance? This question has only been partially answered. We hope to collect more quality diet strategies that can lead to effective weight loss and weight maintenance.

This Special Issue will include manuscripts that focus on the knowledge of dietary management involved in the prevention and treatment of obesity. The presented materials are the result of the international scientific cooperation of experts specializing in these issues. The content may be useful for clinical practitioners and inspire further innovative research.
