Obesity is one of the common medical problems currently confronting the physician. This problem has received increased attention, partly because of recognition that the prognosis of treating obesity in adults is extremely poor and that a high proportion of obese adults were obese children. Inasmuch as the results of long-term treatment of overtly obese children are no better than those observed in adults, prevention of the obese state is desirable to help patients who want to avoid a lifetime of dietary restriction.
