Designing Weight Management and Body Composition Programs

Obesity and being overweight remains a large problem in the United States and almost all developed countries. Write a paper discussing why the obesity and overweight epidemic is a problem in regards to health and disease. Identify specific diseases and their prevalence. Also, discuss ways to prevent an individual from becoming overweight and/or obese and also discuss how someone who is already overweight or obese may get to a healthy body fat again. Make sure to include nutrition and exercise in your answer and the importance of both.
