PMID:  22224839     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
There is a pressing need to reduce both the prevalence and impact of obesity. This review begins with a discussion of the roles of treatment and prevention. Two overriding issues, weight bias and the addictive nature of food, are covered because of their importance not only to the individuals affected but also to public policy. We then cover promising policy areas in which changes can be implemented to support healthy behaviors: school policy, food marketing, food labeling and packaging, and taxes on unhealthy foods. The roles of the food industry and federal, state, and local governments are also discussed. Expected final online publication date for the Annual Review of Clinical Psychology Volume 8 is March 26, 2012. Please see for revised estimates.
