The importance of good nutrition and a healthy weight continue to be acknowledged as a key component for disease prevention and health promotion. Though maintaining an optimal weight is as important as the nutrients selected, it is considerably more difficult to achieve. What has become evident is that “diets” compound the problem rather than resolve it. As the dieting population implements restrictive and unsustainable plans, their weight ultimately continues to soar. The concept of dieting must be replaced with a comprehensive program that incorporates strategies to resolve food problems, nutrition education, meal planning, behavior change, and physical activity if Americans are going to succeed in long-term weight management.
