Weight-related cultural issues throughout the lifespan. Bariatric surgery: when is it indicated? How successful is it? The ten critical steps to healthy weight loss.

With excess weight contributing to some 300,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, the Handbook of Obesity Intervention for the Lifespan will be welcomed-and consulted frequently-by clinical and health psychologists, psychiatrists, primary care providers, and nutritionists.
