Abstract

“If ‘cure’ from obesity is defined as reduction to ideal weight for five years, a person is more likely to recover from most forms of cancer than from obesity” (Brownell, 1980, p. 820). According to the second National Health and Nutrition Examination survey, 26% of all U.S. adults are overweight (Van Itallie, 1985). This percentage accounts for 34 million people of which 12 million are severely overweight, or obese. Successful treatments for obesity are rare (Nicholas & Dwyer, 1986; Stunkard, 1976, 1986). As with other habits such as smoking, initial improvement is most often followed by relapse (Brownell, Marlatt, Lichtenstein, & Wilson, 1986; Brownell, 1980; Collins, Rothblum, & Wilson, 1986; Colvin & Olson, 1983; Hartz, Kalkhoff, Rimm, & McCall, 1986; Stuart, 1971; Stunkard, 1976).
