American Health Foundation Roundtable on Healthy Weight. New York, NY USA, 1994/09/20.
« Policy » is defined as a definite course of action adopted for reasons of expedience, prudence, wisdom, or common sense.
What can be said about policy and healthy weights ?
We must draw conclusions from the evidence offered for the comorbidities associated with overweight.
Then we must ask, what is a healthy weight ?
How much gain or loss will suffice to arrive at a healthy weight ?
What other issues such as economics and mental health costs affect policy ?
To facilitate the process, I will review the policy issues for which there is already a consensus and then outline the evidence available from which this group might gain perspective for formulating practical public health recommendations.
